      You know what ? : I loved it.”

      Great location, eventhough you have to cross and step over the railways tracks to get to the beach and to their beach restaurant. Trains frequency can be high in the morning but good sleepers won't notice. Kind of funny anyway to look at the full to bursting trains. No lift and 3 floors. Room 301 the best, then 201. Avoid blind rooms 106,206,306. Breakfast 950/975 Rs (6,00€). too expensive for what you get. Indoor restaurant is not appealling neither the staff. Food at beach restaurant is rather good, staff is excellent, friendly, smiling and helpful. Front Desk clerks are also friendly, smiling and helpful. Had a slight health problem and I requested a doctor address. In less than five minutes, Front Desk called me back in my room, managed to drive me in their own tuk-tuk to the doctor and back. Awesome. Free sun beds and towels for guests at the beach. By the way, the Mount Lavinia beach area near the hotel is clean, nice and quiet and taken care of by the staff at Mont Breeze and by the staff of right next door restaurant La Voile Blanche as well. We do recommend La Voile Blanche beach restaurant: white design, nicely dressed friendly staff, good cocktails and good food on the expensive side for S.L (green curry prawns: 2000 Rs. (12€), we liked it but double-check the tab anyway. Sea was warm and clean. Stay away from the brown-sugar addicted bunch of locals who pollute the beach from time to time, don't accept their coconut water nor aloe vera massage. Tourist police is around but unable to keep them away. Very few beach vendors, unlike those annoying in Thailand beaches. Otherwise, at dusk, when it's cooler, many (young) sri-lankans gather to the beach to enjoy the beach and swimming. Rooms are not "Ritzy" yet fine with (working) air-co, tv, mini-fridge, closet, kettle and tea bags, basic bathroom. Room-service available. However room cleaning frequency remains a mystery that I was not able to penetrate. Very pleasant swimming-pool with round the clock pool at

      Overall Mount Breeze Hotel is "just fine"”

      Overall this hotel is pretty good. No major complaints. The closeness of the beach is great, but the closeness of the train track isn't so great. The pool is nice. The rooms are adequate. In summary, this hotel is perfectly fine for what you pay.

      Not great ”

      Near beach, clean room

      Not great I was looking forward staying by beach. When read about this hotel it never Said it Was on top of train station. When checked in I was annoyed after 30mins and about 4 trains passed by and in the bedroom you could hear the noise and vibration in bedroom. I asked to change room , which I was told next day I can change as booked out. So next day changed room to inside , it was better but not great as looking forward to peacefully sleeps, which never happened as trains go till nearly 11pm and first thing in morning. The breakfast wasn't great had it the first morning, the toast wasnt toast when sent it back to get brown, then I get it cold and hard as rock. The tea I got then was powder milk which doesn't taste good. For a hotel you would expect fresh milk in a jug. The only good thing about this hotel was the staff was nice and friendly and would help you where they could.

      There is nothing called "better"

      I was very disappointed with the hotel. There is no wifi except in the lobby. The worst thing is that they dont provide you with a toothbrush and paste. You got to bring your own or wait till 9am for someone to buy one from the store.

      Clean, spacious rooms & lots of empty promises”

      convenient & big room, quite close to beach

      I stayed in the standard promo room for a couple of nights. According to the offer, the room features a range of things which in reality are empty promises. Free WiFi access in Rooms: No - WiFi only in lobby. Balcony/terrace: No (there is a chair in the open, public corridor that is "your balcony, mam"). Beach view: The window towards courtyard and partly beach is in milkglass, so the room is fairly bright but without a view (the room is well illuminated at night because there is nothing you can do against the roof light that shines through the window above the door...). Coffee/tea maker: No. Complimentary water: No. Ironing facilities: Maybe upon request? Also bed sheets (top sheets) and towels had to be requested (bed sheet had huge hole). On the positive side: The room is VERY clean, spacious, convenient, no odors, good mattress and ok pillows. Fridge working. The open, local style shower working (hot water). If you mind the train running from 5am until late right in front of the house, this hotel may not be your favorite.

      This if m y worst experience so far”

      close to beach, beach front restaurant, sun deck chairs

      we were very disappointed with the quality of service provided 1. We did not get any free snack 2. Our room was accessible only through a balcony. If it is raining we cannot get out of our room. 3. As we were travelling with a young child, it is not safe. The out door unit of the air conditioner (for the adjacent room) is just in front of our door at the floor level. Children can poke their fingers in, and we have to pass through hot air every time we get out or come in. 4. We did not get any towels for the 4 days we stayed and waste bins stayed full. 5. We got a blanket without covers and hence full of dust. 6. The receptionist was very impolite when we raised these concerns. 7. We ordered room service only once. We ordered Tom Yam soup from the menu which cost about Rs. 290. But we were provided with cream of chicken soup for Rs. 400. 8. Found geckos inside the room. 9. This place is less like a hotel and more like a guest house.

      Good customer care, lovely location, and the atmosphere was fab

      i had a bit of trouble with the check in because i had lost my card. i called in early that morning to ask if i would need my card to check in since i had booked it online and i was told i would. unfortunately, i wasnt in possession of it, and was expecting it to be delivered to me that day. however, bad news struck and i wouldnt be able to get it until the next day. i phoned again and explained the situation, and was told that the payment had been made and that i would not need it. this really irritated me because i had planned a lot of things to do that day and was unable to do them due to the staff's misinformation. apart from that, the hotel was great. good rooms, good team, good atmosphere, lovely beaches.

      Nice location, decent rooms”

      Proximity to the beach (just a walk away across the railway tracks)

      the hotel was all right, the staff were friendly and helpful save for one of the guys at the reception that was always very grumpy and unwilling to help (couldn't catch his name). the location is great because its only a minute's walk away from the beach. otherwise though, there's really not much around the hotel - there are a few banks, supermarkets and little malls, but no real "touristy" activities such as street markets and food. the food at the hotel is average, can't expect too much from a budget hotel - but the portions are huge! be careful with ordering too many rice dishes, they're a little difficult to finish. the rooms at mount breeze are okay, unfortunately you can't expect to get too much sleep because the passing trains will keep you up all night. as far as cleanliness is concerned, it seemed pretty clean to me, but there was a lizard in my room. also there's no elevator so if you want the sea-facing room, you'll have to be prepared to walk up 3 floors every day. overall our stay was all right, not unpleasant at all and of course very affordable. i would however look for something else in a better location next time (mount lavinia can get a bit boring if staying for more than 2 days - there simply isn't much to do).

      Best 2-3 Star hotel close to Mount Beach”

      Clean & comfortable Rooms, Helpful Staff, Cheap & Tasty Food

      After reading reviews on Agoda , I selected this hotel over the other hotels around Mt Lavenia. As we wanted to check in the morning and leave in the after-noon this was possible with 24Hr Check in-out in Mount breeze Hotel. We arrived at the hotel in morning and check-in was hassle free. We've been given a room facing the beach. Room is clean and equipped with essentials including a cosy bed. Bathroom is relatively small but It's clean and include all the essentials (You can't ask for more for this price tag). We've ordered our free English breakfast and it was surprisingly nice (Room Service was really friendly and helpful). Note that this hotel isn't connected to the beach as the rail roads goes in between. Even the rooms are built sound proof you may find it noisy when the trains going nearby (1-2 trains per hour). For lunch we went to the beach where you can find hundreds of good restaurants. We left the hotel in the evening and there was nothing to complain about the hotel.

      The hotel is located near the beach side, however, next to the railway, very noisy. When I checked in the hotel, there was no bottled water in the room, and I request from the reception. Staff service is very slow. Renovation is on going during day time. Not recommend to stay here is you want to enjoy your daytime in the hotel.

      at first, the hotel doesn't seem like much. however the amazing location on the local beach and the restaurants right outside your door make this a great value for the money. the staff are very accommodating and friendly and make up for any amenities that might be lacking. there is a relaxed atmosphere to the place that makes it a truly comfy experience. an interesting note..... if you love trains, the train runs right outside this hotel. a wonderful photo opportunity to catch life along the tracks, and see how sri lankans travel around their country.

      Over all our rooms were not that much satisfactory. But the staff were very good and helpful. ”

      As it is a two star hotel, when we went also we didn't head much expectations, the location was very beautiful, very near to the beach. All the attractive locations in colombo was near. so we didn't had to spend our much of our time in a car or a tuk-tuk. ROOM-compare to 2 star hotel, the room was satisfactory. I remember seen coffee also included in the room amenities, but i had to ask for that also. Thought on the second day they will arrange it, but they din't remember and we had to ask again. When we asked they brought jus a small amount of coffee, for may be just one person in saucer. There was a red colour paint on the floor. if we don't ware slippers in the room then we have the red colour in our leg. We had a tv. but there were few channels which were able to see clearly. We can say just few options. STAFF-staff were friendly. they helped us in so many ways. We will give the staff members just 100 out of 100.. thumbs up to you guys.

      Our reception at this hotel made us very welcome. Restaurant on the beach is delightful. Included breakfast was excellent.

      It is a delightful place to stay. Bed was comfortable. Air conditioner was quiet and bathroom was clean. The one deficiency was the lack of a second sheet. The choice was to sleep on the mattress cover or to sleep without a covering sheet.
