Beautiful Hotel, Exceptional Service, QualityStaff”

Rooms, Food, Service, Internet, Views, Room Service, Hotel Staff Were Friendly

The GSH Colombo Hotel was a pleasant experience. From the time I checked in to the time I checked out the entire experience was First Class. The Staff were friendly, spoke Fluent English and were able to help me out with whatever I needed. The Breakfast at the Hotel was amazing and I was able to order anything I wanted on the menu. The Service was fast. I was able to also order Room Service and that too was very good. Taxi Facilities were available and the staff were very friendly with helping me out with this. If you are looking for a Nice place to Stay in Colombo, Sri Lanka, this is it. Convenient Access to everything in the city. Shopping nearby, central place to stay at affordable rates. Definitely going to come and stay here again next time I am in Colombo, Sri Lanka. I would recommend this place for Business Travelers, Couples with Children, or for anyone that wants to stay for a couple of days. Amazing facilities, amazing service.

Great Hotel - Excellent Value”

Comfortable rooms, great service, very clean

I had a very comfortable stay in GSH Colombo: a large, well appointed, attractively decorated room; good sized modern bathroom with a rainshower; and a balcony. Everything worked and was very clean. I asked for a quiet, sea-side room, and that is exactly what I was given. The staff were fantastic - friendly and professional, they quickly met my every request and helped out with a problem relating to the couriered delivery of a train ticket. Whilst the hotel may not be "central" it's easy to reach anywhere in Colombo by bus or three-wheeler, and there's a local train station near by. There are plenty of restaurants and shops within walking distance including a good local cafe (rice and curry, short-eats) in the GSH block itself. This was my second stay at the GSH and it is now my preferred stop-over in Colombo.

Location is strategic, catch public bus and/tuk tuk around the city, shops many around. Clean hotel and as well clean room., well kept. Breakfast has varieties of healthy choices, I love Iocal cuisine rich flavours, yummy. Spacious room and new bathroom, comfortable bed.

Very nice hotel”

GSH hotel was very clean which I liked the most. I spent three nights in two different rooms and both were nice and cosy including modern bathrooms. Food was good in the hotel's restaurant (but breakfast was quite expensive) and stuff was helpful. We got good recommandations for nice local restaurants for example. Next time visiting in Colombo I could stay in GSH again.

Professional staff, well equipped rooms, personal service

I was very impressed from the very first moment - it felt like they've been waiting for me. I was greeted by the name before even introducing myself, check-in was conveniently arranged in my room. Hotel is very new and clean, all what you expect in room (wifi,water cattle,iron,toiletries,safety box,fridge etc) is conveniently available. Additionally, several shopping options nearby, city centre easily accessible, beach just 5 min walk away and airport not too far either. Hotel manager (Mr. Jesudhason) has very hands-on approach and goes extra mile to make sure that hotel guests stay will be memorable. We had problem with airline and he solved the issue for us, saving our vacation in Maldives! Definitely will stay again in this hotel whenever back in Colombo.

staff were always ready to help. And equipped to help. We had some wifi issues and they were able to solve it promptly. You get a router per room btw. Rooms were clean. Because great southern hotel is a new hotel and Colombo is a big city, it is likely your driver or tuktuk driver will not know where the hotel is. The nearest landmark is which they would most likely know is new delmon hospital. Highly recommended!
