      Airport stop ”

      Hotel wasn't far from the airport - helpful staff on arrival which was around 3.30am. Room clean and spacious our only complain was that the bed was short! I'm only 5'7 but my feet ere hanging over the end! My husband is 6'2 so it wasn't great! Breakfast was in with our deal and that was great - loads of choice, fresh fruits, omelette etc - good find - ideal first hotel.

      modern, good ac, good pool

      a warm welcome was given by a smiling staff, and we were upgraded to a lovely room, although I don't know why. The hotel was A-OK, although at a very expensive $92.00 per nite--breakfast should have certainly been included! It was a buffet, but nothing more than breads, eggs, fruit and cereal--no luncheon and/or brunch type additional items--for an additional $14.oo U>S> per couple. There are no ther possible eating place within walking distance either!

      A very decent inbetweener stay”

      +24 hours reception +money exchange

      we chose a hotel close to the airport as our flights arrived between midnight and 2am and we didn't want to travel too far before getting the train out of colombo a few hours later. i wasn't able to organise a hotel pick up through agoda but perhaps if you book directly with the ramada you can. it wasn't too arduous to organise a taxi from an outside counter (cost rupees / approx. ) merely a bit of a wait until a car was available. reception was lovely upon arrival (nearly 3am), able to provide smaller rupees to pay for driver, and quickly escorted us to our room which was very comfortable. buffet breakfast in the morning was a mix of sri lankan and western foods (cost approximately for two). decent beds, bathroom, and amenities. would recommend for travellers needing a stop over before heading to colombo proper.

      Nice hotel to overnight on transit ”

      Close proximity to the airport, 24 hour room service, large (but a bit rundown) room with a relatively comfortable bed, good bathroom supplies so that you need not unpack, 24 hour reception desk and fast airport transfer. Very reasonable for a few hours sleep before you catch your flight.

      They hadn't got our booking when we arrived despite we had paid in advance . The rooms were filthy, ac didn't work. The first room we couldn't get into I assume it was occupied had to be given another . Really wondered what we might catch from the filth . Better pay a bit extra stay in the gateway hotel nearer to airport better quality used to be the hilton

      We were given a room with view of pool and a small balcony. Room was very large, big bed a couple of sofas. Large toilet with shower cubicle and separate bathtub. Room was very clean. Require taxi or tuk tuk to move around. Had an a la carte small lunch .food was tasty. As leaving before 0600 am was not able to try breakfast. Pool was a very decent size. For our needs was an excellent hotel. Pleasantly surprised.

      Basic Hotel not close to the Airport”

      Not sure why this Hotel calls Airport Hotel since it is not that close. Being in a few Ramada Hotels before, this one certainly should not have this name. Hotel in general is ok, staff friendly and attentive, however Lobby with very poor aircondition which makes the checkin/checkout unpleasant. Room are big but worn out and stained floor carpet and chairs. Breakfast very limited. Won't neither recommend this hotel nor come back.

      Some change is needed to carry its big name”

      Spacious size of room. Nice design of room. It takes 15mins to reach airport by tuk tuk

      I enjoyed the huge spacious room. The bed was pretty comfortable, so this is a nice option for transit stay or for someone who arrived at Colombo at very late hour of night. But I don't know why, I hardly see smiles on staffs' face. I took a tuk tuk to this hotel and no one came to help carry my bags. I thought they must be busy somewhere else, the I dragged my 3 heavy bags into lobby and the two staffs were just watching me without coming to help carry, nor giving me warm greeting smile, which did not feel cool at all. And as for the room, although it looks really nice, as a Ramada room should be, the smell did not really hit that standard. Smells were from bathroom, and probably AC too. Speaking of AC, it is old machine and very loud, works only ok. The carpet is suspicious too, not sure if smells came from it. But for sure it is not clean, cause you feel itch on your feet if you do not wear any shoe or socks. The Wi-Fi is expensive. 2000 rupees for 20 hours online, but the signal in my room was pathetic. So, other than the good looking room and satisfactory size, there isn't much to praise about. I read reviews about this hotel, and several have suggested the hotel to do renovation. I think it is true. The AC noise and smell issue must be solved, it is a shame to see a Ramada room at this condition. Renovation might take a lot of time and cost, but it should be easier to train the staffs to show more hospitality, having more welcoming smiles, and being more attentive.

      Near enoughntonthe airport to let us sleep before a flight

      We took three rooms for a pair of families traveling together. One room was a little moldy smelling and the hotel was willing to accommodate a change. A non smoking policy would be great. Breakfast buffet, not included, was tasty. Ride to the airport was timely and cost effective. We checked in late, out early and this was great...we might have stayed at another spot near the water had we more time.

      A local 3-star hotel with a 'Ramada' logo”

      Close to airport but little else

      As most flights out of Colombo are 'red-eyes' and as I had spent the day travelling down from the Hill Country, I needed somewhere to spend a few hours before the flight to freshen up. This is little more than a local 3-star hotel with a 'Ramada' logo. Whilst I enjoyed being able to spend time in the pool, the cafe was poor, service was surly and there are no distractions near the hotel itself which opens out onto the busy airport road. The carpets in the rooms were filthy. Would only recommend for 1 night to those wanting somewhere to crash near the airport before moving on.
