This visit to Sri Lanka, i booked late and got absolutely hammered. Similar budget hotels are total crap. I immediately checked out and came back to Ivy Lane. The service, room, facilities, cleaniness, is and perfect. It saved my entire trip. First choice: Ivy Lane.

Nice staff who heller us with everything we asked. The rooms are clean but could get a little entertained. Perfect accomodation for one or two nights in Colombo and close to the town. The breakfast was an easy buffé with white toast, tea, fruits and veggies.

1. Friendly front desk 2. Convenience location 3. Easy access to food and shops. 4. Busy street hence not dark and quiet. 5. Convenience of getting a Uber rides and cabs. Worth the price I've paid using agoda, and recommended for those on budget business trip.

      It would help if some antifungal spray is used on tiles in shower areas(at least monthly). Roof top area could do with some refurb. Pleased with cleanliness of bed linen but a higher standard of daily cleaning/mopping of room floor tiles would be useful.

      This was my second booking at the Ivy Lane Hotel. As I arrived, the Receptionist (Daniel) recognised me and warmly welcomed me back. All the staff are very helpful and friendly. This hotel is centrally located and provides VFM accommodation that is clean and comfortable. It also offers car parking. I will not hesitate to stay there again.

      The Resident Manager really disappointed”
      I would have rated this hotel a bit higher if it was not for the awful, disrespectful and threatening behavior of the Resident Manager "Saman Alex". How someone with such manners ever managed to get a job in the hospitality industry is beyond belief. When I went in to check in, he informed me that I could not stay in the hotel as they were having electrical problems and that they would shift me to another hotel owned by them. I had reached the hotel after an exhausting journey and naturally I was very annoyed that I would have to take the hassle of going to another place. As I waited, I started to take some photos of the lobby area of the hotel. Suddenly Saman Alex charged at me from behind the reception desk and angrily said that I should not take photos and that if I wanted I could take his photo. Such behavior was uncalled for and very rude as I was simply taking photos for uploading in a blog.

      Efficient city hotel”
      The first room we were given smelt of cigarettes, so we asked for a change, which was done without any hassle. Second room had a bit of an unusual smell, possibly from the cleaning materials or air freshener. Not a problem though. Room clean, with excellent a/c. Good location for walking about or grabbing a ride. Breakfast western, with cooked eggs on demand. Plenty of food and regularly replenished. Nice roof terrace for breakfast. Could do with a better fruit selection. Staff helpful, eg how we got to see a cricket match.

      Value for money”
      The room was nice and clean.The staff was really helpful. In overall this hotel seemed the best value for money for this price range. Though next time if I would stay in Colombo I would maybe prefer a place with a pool since there isn't that much to see and quite difficult to move around by walking.

I recommend Ivy Lane to anyone looking for a calm oasis to rest and relax in the busy Colombo boundaries. Thank you Hamzy and the rest of the Ivy Lane team! - Ryan

      This is the second time we stayed at Ivy Lane. Front desk staff remembered us from our visit the previous year which was nice. The hotel still has a strong scent that I'm not too fond of. This time around we got a slightly better room. However, the bathroom could use some deep cleaning in the corners and shower head. Breakfast was bland, not many options. Good place for a budget-friendly, basic one-night stay.

      When I arrived at the Hotel I was informed that there was an electrical problem in my room and that my booking had been transferred to their sister hotel, located about 600 metres away (Clock Inn). My review therefore relates to the latter. The hotel is centrally located. The staff are very helpful and solicitous, and the room was clean. Excellent Value for Money.

      A modern and very clean hotel in a good part of town just a short tuk tuk ride from most places. Unless you want to be super close to the main train station, I would recommend staying in this part of town which is a lot less hectic and quite safe, and much better value for money.
