          Luxurious hideout”

          Very beautiful and clean small hotel. We got nice upgrade to larger room as it was so quiet. Friendly and helpful staff. Nicely away from Colombo center if that's what you're looking for. Tuktuk with a meter was abt. 300 rupees to Fort from the hotel.

          The "hotel" looks nothing like the pictures ”

          This hotel looks nothing like the pictures. It is located so far away from the city center that taxis must be ordered since there are none on the residential streets nearby and generally took 40 min to reach the hotel. The hotel overlooks a swamp (which is conveniently omitted from the pictures) and is infested by flies and mosquitos. We had to insist for our room to be cleaned and were told on multiple occasions that cleaning staff was not available. No food was available either during our stay apart from the barely edible breakfast. It is understaffed with only one person on site. For the price needless to say we were extremely disappointed and would have left if we had booked for longer than two nights.

          Dear Kilian, We are very sad and surprised by your review as we usually receive very positive feedback from our guests, that you can read on Agoda or other online travel agents. However, we are extremely sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your stay at The Mangrove and we deeply apologize for the inconveniences that you met during your visit. We do hope that you'll visit again so we can make your stay memorable! Thank you, The Mangrove team

          Great Hotel with extraordinary Staff”

          We spend a couple of nights at this beautifull place but the Staff made the real difference. Located approx. 30 min from CBD we found a special place, warm and welcoming people which made our stay unforgetable. When I go again to colombo, this will be my first choice.

          The room, the service, and the breakfast

          We live in Colombo, but wanted to sneak out for a little time together. The Mangrove Hotel was a great experience. The hotel is elegant but intimate, with good interior design and smart furnishings. The service was very nice: attentive without being overbearing. And we very much enjoyed the food. They served lunch for us when we arrived (grilled prawns and rice), a nice romantic dinner for two (I had steak and she had stroganoff), and a wonderful breakfast spread (Sri Lankan breakfast with Egg Hoppers, Pol Rotti, Chicken and Vegetable Curry, and all the sides). But don't worry, their menu has a long list of traditional meals, to include Continental and English Breakfasts.

          有家的感觉!”

          酒店位于一片安静的别墅区,一共只有4间房,收拾得整洁明亮,布置得宜,由于去的那天就我们一家客人,因此得到了免费升级,升级的房间位于2楼,房间很大,还带一个大大的阳台,但是同样的由于生态比较好,所以不太敢开阳台门,房间的布置,各种设施设备包括床品都不错,晚上非常安静,睡眠品质能够得到保障,晚餐我们选择在酒店享用,主厨的手艺很不错,即便是菜单上没有列的菜式,只要你提出来,材料是可以采购到的话,主厨都会细心帮你准备,早餐时有一个细节我非常感动,因为餐厅是敞开的,会有一些苍蝇飞入,酒店的管家以及服务生会帮忙打开风扇并调整好角度,驱散苍蝇,每一个酒店的工作人员都是非常友好非常愿意提供帮助,真的有家的感觉的一家酒店,非常推荐~
