                From the road hotel does not look impressive but the room is rather omfortable and spacious. There was a comment that the bathroom is small but we find it just nice. Towels a bit grey and they provide soap, shampoo and liquid bathing soap. There is a hair dryer, a coffee maker with complimentary coffee and tea, free bottled water everyday, and a safe. Lots of shops and restaurant in the vicinity. During our stay we witnessed a few weddings of different culture that was booked at the hotel.

                This hotel is a little out of the centre of town but good value. The massive room we had could easily have accomodated a family of 6 & had a lovely view over a neighbouring cathedral. Staff were helpful, especially the lovely old doorman, & there was a great atmosphere with lots of weddings happening downstairs.

                The wash room looks like from an old building, needs upgrading. Supposed to be a deluxe room but looked very basic. Tea, coffee , kettle facilities provided with the good television programs and free wifi. No complaints as such but the price we paid was for deluxe room but was given a standard is my assumption.

But once i checked in the hotel was neat and clean and the bed linen was clean and the service was excellent. Had a very pleasent stay and mainly the Wifi was working very good in the second floor as it was main concern for me to access my day to day mails.The food was very tasty at a reasonable price.The Staffs and attendents are very cooperative and had an excellent room service. The Bathroom was only small -- But its OK. Simply to say -Worth for Money with peace and perfect for any biz people or tourist.

                This hotel is located somewhat south of Colombo city but is well known. The hotel is showing it's age a bit but the staff cannot be faulted. The rooms are spacious and well air conditioned. There is a room safe. The pool is great and well maintained and cleaned. There is a fridge and coffee making facilities. The buffet breakfast is very good. The front doorman is a fantastic asset to the hotel and knows everything whilst being extremely courteous. This hotel is a great escape from the hectic life of Colombo but has a lot of shops around it. If you walk down to the beach and get to Wellawatta train station the ride to Mount Lavinia is only $US0.07. There you can walk through the historic hotel and have a swim at a good beach. There are slums to see on the way which made us pretty sad. Altogether, Hotel Sapphire is a very good value hotel without the over-the-top prices of some of the others.

                convenient location and friendly staff

                The hotel Sapphire is a clean, reasonably-priced hotel in a very convenient location. The staff are friendly and helpful and the breakfast (be careful, not always included in the price)was good but a bit overpriced. They were very gracious to allow me a late checkout and the swimming pool was very pleasant. Th outside of the hotel looks better at night than in the daytime.

                None

                I got a free upgrade to a deluxe room which was really nice. Large and well decorated. Two water bottles and tea coffee maker with supplies was provided. The room had a small problem of ants. Whenever, I made coffee, several ants gathered on the table. Thankfully, there were no ants on the bed. AC was effective. Location-wise, the hotel is a bit far from the town center. Would cost about rupees by tuk tuk to get there from galle face green. There is a shopping mall - majestic city, about 3-4 km away. Sea is about 10 minute walk away from the hotel.

                Situated on the busy Galle Road, the hotel is only convenient if you need to be in Colombo 6 and there is little of interest in the vicinity. The rooms are basic but adequate and a good size; the ones near the road can be noisy. Like most places in Sri Lanka very friendly staff always willing to help. There is also a well kept pool and internet in the rooms. I wouldnt put anyone off staying here but I wouldnt stay here again.

Towels a bit grey and they provide soap, shampoo and liquid bathing soap. There is a hair dryer, a coffee maker with complimentary coffee and tea, free bottled water everyday, and a safe. Lots of shops and restaurant in the vicinity. During our stay we witnessed a few weddings of different culture that was booked at the hotel.

                This hotel is located somewhat south of Colombo city but is well known. The hotel is showing it's age a bit but the staff cannot be faulted. The rooms are spacious and well air conditioned. There is a room safe. The pool is great and well maintained and cleaned. There is a fridge and coffee making facilities. The buffet breakfast is very good. The front doorman is a fantastic asset to the hotel and knows everything whilst being extremely courteous. This hotel is a great escape from the hectic life of Colombo but has a lot of shops around it. If you walk down to the beach and get to Wellawatta train station the ride to Mount Lavinia is only $US0.07. There you can walk through the historic hotel and have a swim at a good beach. There are slums to see on the way which made us pretty sad. Altogether, Hotel Sapphire is a very good value hotel without the over-the-top prices of some of the others.

Rooftop pool was very refreshing (although we did struggle to get a towel service) and we were able to enjoy a really good meal in the chinese restaurant although tgey served a wide range of Sri Lankan and European food as well. A good position close to the centre of the city.
