          Small hotel, great staff with some rough edges”

          We stayed overnight at this hotel before heading to Galle the next day. The staff were very helpful, going so far as to have food delivered for us (as the kitchen was closed for the night), and were very nice! The downside was that there were some rough/unfinished parts in the bathroom, which diminished from the overall quality (as the rest of the furnishings were quite nice!).

          Located near my business purpose, Simple & Cosy Hotel

          This hotel is more suitable for backpackers as it does not have a lift for luggages, but their stuff will carry the luggage for you up stairs. Same breakfast is cooked by their staff daily. Located within walking distance to Odel & House of Fashion and Food City (supermarket). Friendly hotel staff, clean and well facilitated rooms. There are 8 rooms available and choose the one facing the back for less noise.

          You could not tell that this hotel was in the heart of Borella! It was nice and quiet inside the hotel. The staff were attentive and friendly. The bedding was clean and the mattress and pillows were very comfortable Our check in and check out was easy and smooth. It is a very cozy and comfy little oasis. We were very happy with our stay! My only suggestion for improving the place would be black out curtains for the windows facing the rising sun!

          After having stayed in simple guesthouses and home stays during our trip in Sri Lanka, we wanted a bit of luxury for our last night in Sri Lanka. Rockwell Colombo provided that beyond our expectations. It's a small, intimate hotel. The room was very nice (we got an upgrade to a junior suite) and clean, with a small balcony, breakfast and dinner were excellent, and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Location was OK, walking distance to Odel en House of Fashion, and a tuktuk to the Fort was only 250 rupees. Excellent value for money. We would definitely go back!

          Wonderful Staff, Gorgeous room, location to the University

          We loved it, and will come back if we return to do more work at the University in the future, as the location was perfect and the small boutique nature is so much more preferable to big hotels. My only suggestion is that my friend slept (poorly) on the very hard folding bed. It is in complete opposition to the beautiful double bed, and it would be good to be able to access twin beds or a better mattress on the folding bed please. Also, we appreciated the discount on the coffee from $9 per latte to $5. Otherwise it was the most expensive coffee anywhere I have had in the world. But this was rectified when I expressed shock!.Thanks

          Great value for money, Clean well thought rooms, Friendly staff

          We were staying in Colombo just for a night on our way back from Sri Lanka and this was the perfect place. To start with very clean rooms and very friendly staff. The rooms are tastefully done. The staff made us a very nice meal for the dinner after we were totally exhausted with the shopping the whole day. (You can go in the kitchen and see yourself while they are cooking food in front of you) If you are staying longer in Colombo than couple days and have young children (and thus spending more time in hotel and need bigger hotel for them to run around), pl shell out more and book another hotel; otherwise you can not beat this great value for money. Every room has a great wifi connection and all the good shops are 5 min tuk-tuk ride.

          The hotel was opened in 2014, so the facilities are new and nice! Each floor has 2 rooms which keeps good privacy. The room is not very big, but you get all the spaces you need including a small balcony. The style of the hotel is simple but artistic, in a white theme color.Staffs are lovely, helpful and patient. Breakfast is wonderful. Location is good, it's in Colombo 8, a quite and pretty neighborhood.It's about 4 km to the town center (for example, Colombo 1, 2 and the railway station). Overall, it's a pleasant place to stay at, and with a good price point.

          Rooms, breakfast and level of service

          I visited Colombo as a solo traveller, and needed a hotel that was located centrally from which I would be able to explore on my own and easily meet some Sri Lankan friends I knew. I investigated many hotels before settling on the Rockwell, and I am glad I did. My stay was comfortable and enjoyable from the cool towel and drink I received on arrival, to the trouble free checkout before my flight home. At all points the staff were friendly and attentive. As to the hotel itself, I was surprised by both the size and comfort of the rooms where I could relax and unwind after a long, hot day. I myself am not usually a breakfast eater, however I indulged every morning and found sitting out in the courtyard enjoying the fresh fruits and drinks, along with delicious eggs, spicy mushrooms and potatoes and wonderful coffee to be a great way to start the day. If I return to Colombo I shall certainly look to stay at the Rockwell again.

          We had a great couple of days in Colombo using the Rockwell as a base. The rooms are decorated to a very high standard and a very spacious. Something to bear in mind though is that the road immediately outside tends to get queuing traffic on it in rush hour and use of the horn is liberal in Sri Lanka - wasn't too much of a problem as we were up and about to make the most of the stay anyway.

          A nice new hotel in Borella (Colombo 08) ”

          Nice Room, Staff Friendliness, Location

          We booked the Epsom room for 1 night at this hotel during a recent holiday trip to Sri Lanka. The hotel is located in the busy district of Borella (Colombo 08), with relatively close proximity to Odel Dept. Store and House of Fashions (both are reachable within 10 - 15 mins of walking), so locationwise I would say this is a perfect hotel to stay at for those who likes shopping. One outstanding thing worth to note is the room, which is new and clean with modern design and lots of amenities inside. There is a small kitchen equipped with microwave and small dining table in the room, which is very good to have if guests would like to have their meals inside the room. Even the TV is a 50-inch digital TV, so it really offers a great TV-watching pleasure. Bathroom is also nice, clean and modern with powerful shower and steady hot water. Breakfast served is continental breakfast with nothing special to note. In general, accomodation in Sri Lanka is a little bit pricey if you compare it with the rest of Asia, so I would say that this hotel will offer great value for money only if you compare it with the other Colombo hotels of the same standards.
