Great location, fabulous room and nice pool
My sister and I stayed for one night and we were not disappointed. We had stayed here last year and decided to come back as we really enjoyed our stay. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a club room and the check in was really quick and efficient. I wish I could remember the name of the lovely man who checked us in...he was a great help and very courteous. All the staff actually were very helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend anyone travelling to Colombo to stay here at Taj Samudra.

Not a five stars hotel
We booked our stay at 6:00pm but the reception let us enter in the room after more than 3 hours because their software system didn't receive our booking so we had to spend our time waiting. The room was with ocean view but it was difficult to see it for the dirty window, the bathroom had a stained ground and the room details as the forniture were old, not enough for a five stars hotel. To complete this picture, nobody gave us the Internet password and at 8am we woke up for the home works in the rooms around. The receptionist Raminda was a bit uneducated with us demostrating he didn't care of our booking receipt. For us it has been the first and the last time here
