The night staff for check in was not at all helpful and created trouble for me rather than helping. Tone was very bad as if I owe them something and not a professional customer service. I will never stay in this hotel again

Great Location for a Landmark Hotel”
This was originally the Hotel Ceylon Intercontinental maybe 20-30 years ago. It has been upgraded and has a very nice colonial touch to it. Fabulous breakfast buffets. Very helpful and friendly staff - great reception team and concierge service. Wonderful restaurants. The only downside was that there were guests from Arab countries and Pakistan who were clearly not used to 5 star decorum and accommodations - their children were noisy and not well managed and had a bad impact on the ambiance of several of the restaurants. The women wore full hijabs and were obviously not very refined and often messed up the food at the buffet. Their is an excellent afternoon tea service at the hotel and a great place to watch sports and chill with a cool beer. I was able to get a much welcome chilled beer on a Poya Day which was wonderful for a someone who likes to relax with a drink or two, even if it is not available outside. Will stay there again!

Fantastic Stay After a Bumpy Start”
After we complained about the infiltrating cigarette smoke & thumping music outside our initial room (3 floors up facing Honey beach Club) staff & management went the extra mile to assist us & ensure we were more than comfortable for the remainder of our stay. Downstairs facilities are 5 star no doubt, however unfortunately the rooms themselves could do with a freshen up to match the rest of the hotel. Also the beach club theme is completely at odds with the ambience portrayed throughout the rest of the hotel. Staff were fantastic overall, very helpful, obliging, respectful and polite. The location of the hotel is fantastic for exploring the Fort, and convenient for accessing the rest of the city.

I spent my last two nights in Colombo at The Kingsbury & thought this was a remarkable way to end my holiday in Sri Lanka. The hotel is the epitome of luxury. The food at both the afternoon tea and breakfast buffets was a true fusion of all the foreign influences Sri Lanka has enjoyed. I was gobsmacked by my room the second I stepped into it - it was divine. My bed faced the sea and waking up in the morning was so refreshing. Kudos to the management for looking into even the smallest details to create such a wonderful sense of grandeur.

Great hotel. ”
Nice and clean rooms. Very relaxing. Great facilities. Breakfast is heavenly. Staff are very helpful. Only downside the reception is very crowded always due to weddings and similar functions. Reception too small for a hotel of its nature. Overall beautiful and relaxing place to stay in Colombo.

Rooms need some work ”
Pool was great, staff were helpful and pleasant, food was good, but the rooms really need some work, definitely not up to standard we expected- chipped paint on furniture, carpets looked tired, rooms definitely need painting, air conditioning outlet looked filthy. Also agree with other reviews that the number of functions the hotel hosts causes issues for guests, only 2 elevators and a lot of times filled with function guests, you gave to wait quite often to get to your room.

Everything was good but the elevator was broken for days. It took FOREVER to get anywhere. Not sure how it could break time after time? Soon new international hotels will open in Colombo and then I don't this this place will be so packed anymore.

Service was excellent, friendly staff
my stay was brief but not matching my expectations, when comparing rooms with other hotel. It's my hobby to checkin in a different hotel each time, I visit Colombo for business. From the look of the hotel and standard mention in sites,it does not match the exact feeling once inside the room.

central nice hotel”
location, roof top, nice rooms
The hotel is located just in the center of town. However, there is a massive port being build now and they work on it 24 hours, it is noisy in the night to sleep there. The gym is ONLY open until 21.00, the earlest gym i been to at hotels, its usually always 22.00 or 23.00 or then just 24 hours. I wonder why it closes so early. The staff at the dining room is also very slow, i ate there 8 times and 6 of the times i had to ask for a coffee 2 or 3 times before it came, same thing with the bill and getting a soda water. I dont know if its the english or if they forgot or if they just dont really cared, you could tell the staff that...Room was nice but internet is SLOW. The pool is really great too and there is a very nice roof top bar / resaurtant! This was a great hotel, just some minor improvements could be done here .
