it is what it is
location, good quality internet in room
Simple, room was clean though sheets a bit dirty and I had to ask for soap and toilet paper. This is a good place if you want to save some money and are looking for a cheap place just to sleep for a night. You don't want to hang out here. Has potential but not quite there yet.

convenient place
easy to get food clean room hospitality
The place is very convenient for getting food, livingware and transportation as well. This hotel is not so noisy because it locates the backstreet. But you can come up to the main street 3minutes on foot. The stuff is nice and friendly anytime.

actually there is nothing good about this place. First of all, we did not get the proper room we booked. They said the room was not ready and kept us in a another room. And Second of all in the shower room the shower head was broken. We had to repair it our selves. This place is crap. They need to change the quality of their service. We was totally disapointed

Clean new renovated room
Clean, economic room near public transport.
I stayed here twice, at the start and at the end of my trip two weeks later. I stayed on the bottom floor in the newly renovated rooms. Being newly renovated, the room was very clean and had good air con. No hot water on my initial visit but available on my second visit. Poor WiFi in lounge and no TV or fridge in room. The owner is developing a restaurant on the bottom floor to open in a month. The hotel is distant from Colombo / Fort 01 but can be reached by public transport from the main road.
