We stayed at Cinnamon Lakeside hotel in Colombo as the last leg of our trip in Sri Lanka and wanted to rest and relax in good surrounding before the flight. We spent a lot of time at the poolside and mostly enjoyed the offerings at the pastry shop (extensive selection!) The hotel is located close to Pettah market (for those who like an authentic market experience) and also close to the beach. The staff are friendly and pleasant. For the minus points I'd say the view from the outdoor pool was disappointing and when ordering a taxi (hotel car) to the airport the prices are ridiculously high compared to the other long journeys we've made (also in very good air conditioned vans).
I'd still recommend the hotel.

Everything you expect from 5 star luxury. Breakfast in particular was memorable
