The best welcome we ever had!”

Service, Location, Cleanliness

I have made a reservation for my parents at the Ocean Colombo Hotel. Since it was my mothers birthday, I asked them if they can do something nice for her. Usually a hotel will put some chocolates and a card, but they went out all the way - they greeted her in the check in, decorated their room with balloons, put a cake in the room with her name on it - and not less than 4 staff members went up to sing her happy birthday. This was according to them, the best welcome they ever had. The room itself had large beds, a beautiful view and the breakfast was nice. The hotel was clean and located in a central location, so they could get anywhere they wanted quite easily. A hotel that knows how to make their guests feel special is worth everything. Thank you!

Wonderful Stay with gorgeous view ”

I was with my friend for the first time at The Ocean Colombo, Check in till check out everything was perfect. My room was 705 and the view of the sea and the rail track close by. We were welcomed by Upendra in the front desk and his costumer care was excellent. Mr Jamal Deen he helped us to open the mini bar and filled our needful drinks, his smile and the innocent attitude was heart melting. Room was super clean and the washroom as well. Room set up and environment was absolutely great. We used to go to the rooftop for smoke and for some drinks coz we requested for a non smoking room. At rooftop the guys were so friendly and kind. The day when we checking out we were so sad to leave the room coz it’s a wonderful place. Early morning the sound of the sea waves and the train passing by was really great. I really enjoyed it. Nothing made me uncomfortable. Special thanks to Tuwan, he questioned us how was your stay! There where he touch our hearts. He’s so kind and assist us in a very welcoming way. Everything was excellent. We will surely back to The Ocean Hotel...

Great location and excellent service!”

Location and view of the ocean, service, value

We enjoyed our stay at The Ocean Colombo and would return. The people certainly made a difference although I would not consider it a 4-star, only based on the features that I would expect of a 4-star. The family suite was spacious and had brilliant views of the ocean, new and nicely laid out. Although small, the restaurant was brilliant with the chef providing a very personal touch and found them to be welcoming and warm. Great value too. The rooftop bar is a jewel, great DJ during the weekend, nice snacks and cocktails. There are a few things to be done structurally at the rooftop bar, to keep the water out of the covered areas during heavy rain. One of the few negatives is the proximity to the train track, if you are a light sleeper as the trains start around 5:30am. I am a light sleeper but didn't mind it from the 2nd day! In summary, The Ocean Colombo will provide you great value, warm hospitality and a brilliant location.

Excellent service!”

Our five day stay at the Ocean Colombo was elevated from good, to remarkable thanks to the incredible services - everyone from the doorman, to the receptionists were all smiles, and very helpful. As we were travelling during Ramadan, the lovely floor supervisor Fauzan, arranged complimentary Iftars for us, which we appreciated immensely. Nishanthah and Stanley from room service are also fondly remembered- the rooms were always spotless, and the complimentary tea and coffee abundant. If you want a simple hotel with a great view and spectacular service, this is the one for you.

Quite nice”

Nice staff, especially at the front desk and at the dining area, the view of the ocean and the rooftop bar

This hotel was overall a good experience. However the airport transfer was quite appalling. They did not show up at the airport although we emailed them a few days before to confirm it, however we were waiting for more than 2 hours for them. We rang them and they said someone would show up within 45 minutes however they still did not. At the end we had to take a taxi. So in sum up not recommended for airport transfers. However the rest of the hotel was superb. The front of the hotel looks fantastic and the hotel staff are lovely. The room we had looked very cute and homely with nice furniture. It was also air conditioned and right near the ocean which helped us get through the hot and humid weather. It was beautiful to wake up to the view of the ocean and the roof top bar really emphasised the wonderful view while having a bite to eat. Although, the service charge and tax was a bit over priced. However, the breakfast in the morning was delicious and there was such a big variety to choose from. We came across a very sweet and understanding receptionist, Aletta, who made our stay even more enjoyable. She was very friendly to talk to, especially about any problems we had.

A New Hotel Just Beside The Sea”

The Ocean Colombo Hotel is a relatively new hotel situated just besides the sea (but it's not a beach). It is a 10-minute walk to Kells Supermart. The hotel has a rooftop bar which should have some pretty amazing views at night.

It was totally worth the money.It was our first stop in sri lanka so we had a lot of questions.the patient staffs were ever helpful and truthful.we had a bad experience as we were cheated by local tuktuk drivers outside.the most enjoyable part was of course having the hotel to arrange an 8 hour trip around colombo.Kudos to our sincerely dedicated driver Muhammad who made our trip around Colombo fantastic and an unforgetable one.

Great for short business stays”

It was my first time to check in at The Ocean Hotel. The room was clean and had a nice view of the Indian ocean. I came there for short stay and some business meetings with 1-2 people, but the hotel didn't have any small meeting room I could use. Nonetheless, the staff found a way to provide one for me by lending me the office of the hotel manager. I appreciate the extent the staff went in order to provide what I needed that time.

Good Hotel- awesome view!”

the hotel is very clean and the staff is very friendly! our flight was in the evening so the girl at the reception offered us an late check out. the view from the rooms are absolutely awesome. there is a railway between hotel and ocean but it's not loud no worries. the rooftop bar is very good u have an awesome view to the ocean and over the city. if u want to stay in a good hotel which is not so expensive u should choose this u will not regret it!

Great Hotel in an Awesome Location.”

Location, View,

I Booked Ocean Panorama Studio which was in 9th Floor and had a GREAT Panoramic view of the ocean and the road beneath. Awesome feeling and so refreshing. really happy about the location. although the description said they have Free WiFi access, the speed of the WiFi is really bad. and had lots of issues when it comes to using Internet from the room. Overall its a great Hotel. But if you are on a business trip which require internet access, and you planning to use Hotel WiFi, you should think twice, other than that, an Awesome Hotel. Thumb up.

Amazing service and food ”

The room was very noce and accommodating.For me, the customer service was impeccable. I would specially love to say The waitress ‘Gayani’ was honestly the best waitress and one of the best that i have ever come across, compared to so many other hotels locally and even overseas. She was so friendly, so homely and very efficient. She treated is with care and love and due to her and the amazing food the chefs provided us, we extended our stay by two days! The other waitress i think ‘dulsie’ was her name, was very sweet as the 2 male waiters in the restaurant were very nice too. I loved my stay at the ‘the ocean’ and will recommend it to all my friends as well. I would specially mention gayani’s service as we extended our stay due to her amazing customer skills.

Great hotel poor staff”

The view from the rooms are breath taking! Location is perfect, very near to all amenities. Amazing sky roof bar.

I am extremely disappointed with the Service and the attitude of the hotel staff at The Ocean Colombo. The staff had not informed me and my friends about the lunch and dinner timings at the time of check-in. I was under the impression that there's 24 hours of room service in the hotel. Supposedly, we were late for dinner but the staff were extremely rude and not willing to offer any assistance although I and my friends were very hungry. They maintained stating that the kitchen is closed and the hotel cannot extend help to arrange for any kind of refreshment. If the staff are educated to handle such situations, it's the best hotel to stay in.

Sublime Views! ”

One of the best views ever - I stayed in a room facing the ocean. It was perfect, having the opportunity to sit by your bedside with a drink in hand and watch sunset, more than beautiful to be honest. It also faced the railtracks which was just by the ocean, that was classic, you'd only get that in Sri Lanka. Another one of the unique points of the hotel I must say. Apart from the view, the bathroom was super clean and pretty large and updated. This was another pull factor; cleanliness and hygiene. The staff across the hotel were great except for the tour agent on the ground floor which was a bit of a pushy person, kept asking if we wanted transport and tours etc. Just a few downsides, there were no facilities, no pool nor a gym, and the rooftop lounge was under renovation (a little sad, but it's okay). It was a good stay all-in-all, and I'd return for sure!

Great Value with Great Views”

Rooms are great with fantastic view of Indian Ocean. And the lounge on the top floor is is a great place to chill and enjoy great Colombo city and sea views. The one downside was that the AC in room didnt work very well. I had 2 calls in to have it looked at and no improvement felt in cooling room after maintenance guy looked at the issue. Overall, this place is very good value for money with great location and clean rooms with amazing ocean views.
