                  Nice hotel for one night in Colombo”

                  We stayed there for one night after we arrived in Sri Lanka and the hotel was what we expected ! Breakfast typical Asian (one think per person) but good! Close to train station and bus station and super nice staff ! We recommend the hotel !

                  First night in Sri Lanka and I overestimated the time I needed from airport to hotel. Arrived 6 in the morning and he let me take the room early without charge. Room was decent for Sri Lanka. I stayed here just to cover the first night and this was good for it.

                  A business hotel in the heart of Pettah district, some distance from Fort and the railway station. A new hotel with spacious clean rooms. A good double bed, shower and tea making facilities. The higher floors have a view of the dock area. Breakfast was plentiful and good. The staff were friendly and very helpful.

                  Good Breakfast. Location. Good service Staff

                  Location is close to Petta Market. Don't stay in the front rooms. Very noisy. If you are coming from airport, make sure you have the right address and telephone number, most drivers are not from Colombo. So they have to guess the hotel address. Overall, I may stay there.

                  Location, friendly staff.

                  I enjoyed staying at this hotel. Location was only a couple of hundred metres from the Pettah markets. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. On my second night I stayed in their budget room, room number 201. It was half the price. This room was much smaller and had two bunk beds but still had a private ensuite, so fantastic value if you ask for it and it's available. The location of this hotel as marked on the agora to website is wrong. It is 200 m further up the road from the markets and also on the opposite side of the street.

                  Central Location, Good Sized Room, Friendly Staff

                  You may love being in the centre of the busy market district or it may overwhelm you. The pedestrian and vehicular traffic is certainly hectic, but you get a taste of real Colombo life. The hotel itself is good in all respects, if a bit expensive, and the staff try hard to make your stay enjoyable. Breakfast is good, but does lack variety. The Hotel is close to bus and train stations and within walking distance of other parts of central Colombo. We enjoyed the Elite Indian Restaurant just down the road, and bought take-away beer from an outlet just across the square in the People's Park complex.

                  Location right into Petah market, nice breakfast, clean hotel

                  Convenient if you want to explore petah market and Fort area on foot. Staff is friendly and helpful to book taxi to airport for reasonable price. Breakfast is fine. Reception staff could do with a bit more initiative when asked for questions but this isn't meant to be a 5* hotel so understandable.

                  Basic hotel better value elsewhere.”

                  The hotel is situated in an industrial street with oil and transport trucks loading and unloading along its length. Walking to the shops or nearest restaurants is a five hundred metre trek along a foot path blocked by goods and oil trucks. Our room was small and basic . Three of the five light fittings did not work. When we asked the front desk for help booking a train or bus out of town we got no help and were told to go to the station and book it ourselves. The only highlight was the chef who was friendly and cooked nice tasty meals. We would not stay there again.

                  We arrived from the airport late and the desk staff was helpful and accommodating even though we had an issue with booking the wrong date that was quickly changed. Staying only one night on the way to the train, the hotel is located a short tuk tuk ride from one of Colombo's railway stations. The breakfast staff were kind and pleasant. The room was comfortable and clean although the walls were all patched up and looked like it was in need of a total new paint job.

                  Good stay. Staff very keen to please. Breakfast good....no evening meal available but manager keen to advise and instruct tuk tuk. "Boy" keen to make up room, knocked twice....in the best possible way (other places totally disinterested). All staff keen to please....and succeeded in our case. there is a bit of noise...some engine in the hotel. Also the muezzin is very close. But this didn't disturb us....although the manager was worried it might have. We would stay there again in same circumstances.

                  Beach, location and quiet

                  Staff give a lot of promisses, but not do them on time. However we liked staying at this hotel. Breakfasts were the same everyday, but for the price we pay it's ok. Dinal, Iman and Nuan were helpful, whatever I've asked, they were very friendly and hospitable. Beach is quiet and nice, some reefs are very close to the beach, but it's good for snorkeling. We also liked the local villagers, one fisherman's family was very friendly, and nice to us. Many thanks for all Sri Lankian people we've met. however there were some people, who wanted to rip you off, but I think it's everywhere in the world.

                  Great room, poor location!”

                  very clean, spacious room, lunch pack

                  We stopped over on our way to the airport. It was convenient because it's located in the north of Colombo. However, the area is not really good for dinner/shooping, etc. The rooms have a good size, the shower is great, the sheets were really clean and the staff provided a lunch pack because we had to leave before breackfast started. Overall it was a nice surprise and the price is also fair!

                  Good place but hard to find”

                  Staff, breakfast cleanliness

                  My stay was good but it was a bit hard to find the hotel. The taxi driver drove around 20 minutes trying to find it after taking us to a different hotel by mistake in the beginning. He area is not very nice but very convenient to the train station if you are overnighting in Colombo.

                  Very good hotel in the heart of Colombo ”

                  Staff attitude, cleanliness, location

                  I stayed in this hotel for four nights. The location of this hotel is very good. It is around 400 meters from Central Bus Terminus (both private and Govt. bus terminus are adjacent to each other) of Colombo. Further 200 meters from this Central Bus Terminus is Fort Railway Station. Airport bus no. 187 starts directly from this Central Bus Terminus. Bandarnaike International Airport is 32 km from this center of Colombo. The location of this hotel is such that wherever people want go either by bus or train, they can go anywhere. The staffs are very good and helpful in this hotel. This hotel has 24 hrs. Reception desk. Rooms are clean and big. The rooms are cleaned everyday but they change towels after a gap of three days. In my room there was problem in hot water shower, but later they have rectified the problem. This hotel has elevator. Views of Colombo Port can be seen from top floor rooms. I have booked through Agoda.com. If you book this hotel online through Agoda.com then only breakfast is included in the room rate. Otherwise it is chargeable and guests have to pay extra. Breakfast is in the first floor. There is no buffet breakfast. They serve slice of bread, egg items, juice, fruit salad, Choco drink, tea or coffee etc. Whatever they serve, it is quite sufficient breakfast for a person. Breakfast room is neat and clean. Timing is between 7 AM to 10 AM. They have provided packed breakfast for me, the day I made a Kandy trip. Even they provided me packed breakfast on request when my flight was after midnight. This is a very good gesture that cannot be forgotten. Overall this hotel is excellent to stay in Colombo in every respect.
