    Timing of payment.”

    When we booked the hotel from UK, it stated the price of £43.52 (($54.96). We thought the payment had already been taken care off. However, when we got to the hotel, we were told the payment will be taken that day which came up to $71.49 - far more than we had expected. More clarity and final total would help with the budgeting and planning/booking of holiday.

    A great choice for the first time”

    The Premier room was fantastic. View was good and spacious. Service and people were great. Michael Joseph the cleaner takes his effort to clean and its refreshing to get back to the clean tidy room. The restaurant team, Gayani the waitress was such a sweet thing that she was courteous with her service and a home service I would say. The Chef Akila is at service and manages all with his smile of service with an excellent Kola Kenda herbal porridge. A must try. Overall I would go back to stay there again soon. It was a vacation in the hotel by the service.

    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!

    Nice hotel with a magnificent panoramic view of the ocean.”

    I was only in the hotel for a night on a long layover. However, I found the staff very accommodating. My room has a very nice panoramic view of the ocean. Very soothing, relaxing. It's beautiful to sit down watch the sunset as well as the sunrise inside the room. What a beatiful day to wake up watching the waves touches the shore in the morning. Will stay again on my next visit to Colombo. Highly recommended.

    The hotel is new. Rooms are nice. Staff was friendly. Location is right at the water front. Easy to get transportation. Close to all major attractions and shopping. Spa was BAD. Would recommend to be more professional in their approach to clients. Staff was continuously entering the treatment room in the middle of a massage session. Highly UN professional. Staff was found eating on the visitors sitting area and kept on interrupting the session practically forcing the massage lady to quickly finish in order to accommodate another client who had booked more expensive services. Over all hotel is nice and would recommend it to all.

    We were surprised by the size of the family rooms which had a living area and two large beds. 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.

    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.
