We stayed here 4 nights (pretty long for Colombo city but we had to get visas from the embassy & wouldn’t recommend staying that long ) but all I can say is the hotel was great!
It surpassed my expectations and delivered a great service.
The receptionists were very accommodating and went above and beyond! The restaurant was fantastic and we had the best breakfast spread we’ve had on our whole trip. We actually ate here every night as we couldn’t fault the food it was pretty good and well presented. The room was as pictured, comfy bed, good shower and plenty of free toiletries, USB ports were a welcomed touch. The room was cleaned daily with fresh towels And tea coffee making facilities topped up daily. The roof top pool and bar were fantastic, good music and mood lighting and the views were amazing at night . Room service was fast and all staff were attentive and helpful.
There was only one downfall that I can complain about and that was for 2 out of our 4 nights the roof top bar and pool were closed for private functions(which I understand isn’t the staffs fault) but we could of been told prior to check in,as when you book a hotel based on all its facilities I expect as a paying guest I can use them !’ One night I understand but two consecutive evenings was a bit unfair
But set that aside it is a great hotel hence my 10/10

Superior View from the roof top.. Infinity Pool was good. We were not able use the pool in the evening due to the happy hour of the hotel, the place was so much crowded with the BAR not with the pool. It was really uncomfortable to use the pool with wife. We were able to use it early in the morning courtesy to the duty manager gave us approval.
Very comfortable room & Bed.
Good AC
Tv channels are not enough to view. Better to have some more specific channels. local news channels.
Good service given by restaurant staff. Each & every one helped us. If you can provide a finger ball to wash hands on the table without making guests to go out to wash hands (If they eat something with hands.. like sting hopper with curry).
Dinner buffet it will be great-full if you can have @ least one variety of ICE cream for Dessert.
Arabic Lentil soup was superb. Breakfast we had to choose from A la carte. Cheese omlet was good. Waffle was good enough. But chocolate sauce was missing on it.
We had drinks from the BAR. Blue mojito was Superb.
Wonderful Stay.

I stayed at ME Colombo for 14 days as per quarantine guidelines. The hotel provided good transport from the airport and performed a PCR test upon immediate arrival to the hotel. The rooms are very clean, spacious, and modern. The view is of a cricket ground and the city skyline which is quite nice at night. The rooftop pool and bar are clean and relaxing to use. The restaurant is clean and serves good quality food with a good range of options. The only downfall is the gym, which only has one machine, treadmill, and bench in a small room so it is not exactly usable. Also, the wifi towards the upper floors is quite slow so don't expect to be streaming or downloading much.

The best part of my stay were the staff. The marketing manager Keshan, receptionist Dilan, waiters Dilshan and Vimuthki, and especially the service staff like Kannan and more are extremely friendly, speak English, and do their best to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. During any emergencies, the manager personally spoke to my no matter what time it was, and Dilan was always helpful in following up to make sure everything was okay. The waiters are very friendly and are lovely to have a chat with. The service staff do a thorough clean of your room and are always so friendly.

If I came back and had to quarantine, I would definitely stay at ME Colombo as the property is good and the staff are even better.

I have tried to add categories about the hotel - hope this is useful
Overall not a bad hotel if you are looking for a cheaper room in Colombo zone 2 (hotel district i am told)

Pool
There was a rooftop pool that looked lovely and was great views at the top of hotel, the pool was freezing however and there was no sun loungers and the pool was covered but would not have been able to sunbathe
Staff
Upon check in they were really friendly and even upgraded our room to one with a balcony
When we decided not to stay a second night the staff were really helpful and helped us arrange a taxi
Room
The bathroom is just a glass wall with a see through blind so if someone if using the toilet you can see and hear everything
The room itself felt quite small, it was long but it felt squashed, it was well decorated and it was comfortable and the bathroom had soap and shampoo
At night there was some kind of party with really loud music ( we had a long day travelling) it did stop before we went to sleep but you could hear the road noise
Hotel
The decor of the hotel was nice very modern and it has everything you need, with a rooftop bar and pool and a restaurant. The ground floor just had a reception and a small business room and one toilet and everything else was on a high floor. The stairways were quite narrow.
The bar was on the rooftop and when we arrived there was a DJ playing and we were informed the bar would close at 10.30pm. We did not have a drink but it seemed a nice atmosphere
Good WIFI throughout

Food
We only ate breakfast here, there was a small selection and it was help yourself but there was enough to eat, well stocked and fresh

Location
I didn't check out what was local other than the supermarket and that was super close, the hotel could have arranged a taxi if needed

Spend the day package experience was horrible.They served a cold pizza that tasted like cardboard. This pizza was supposed to be a spicy chicken pizza which in reality wasn't even spicy and zero flavor. Service was terrible, may be they were short on staff. Room, lunch and tea for 70usd was the package but do you really have to serve unedited food so that the customer buys more? Don't think so, I cut my stay short (no partial refund) and went to a different restaurant to eat lunch. Thanks for ruining my day.
I would not recommend this place. No value for money. Worst experience I had in Colombo and that says something.

Two of my friends and myself visited ME on a evening, the roof top Bar and the swimming pool had a mind blowing view of the the city the breeze and the back ground music was bread and butter to our evening they have taken all precaution due to
Covid-19 they have laid a platform on top of the pool which help to keep the distance from the other tables so you are safe.

Roshan Rupasinghe was the surprise of the day where first we thought he was a Stewart because he was looking into all the tables and delivering on time alone by him self where we happened to ask are you working alone where he said his employees are stuck at home due to the pandemic so that he has to save everyone. He is the F&B Manager which we were so happy to see not a manager a leader.. If ME colombo bring more talent like this have to say that they have a great future ahead.

The offers they put on and value for money is where we rarely find places like this in Sri Lanka..

I would recommend ME to everyone out there to enjoy..

Our stay was memorable but unfortunately for the wrong reasons.
Firstly front of house staff were very helpful during our stay and a special mention to the gentleman, Mr Lalith, working the bar at the pool.
Our room was good but the floor was not cleaned very well as the soles of our feet were “black” from walking around in bare feet.
The servicing of the room was lacking due to attention to detail in just some minor areas – we had to ask to have the toilet rolls and coffee replaced on a couple of occasions.
Now the major problems of the hotel. We were on level 5 and were faced with constant barking of the dog from the penthouse above. I believe the owner might live there. Not what residents want to hear as they try to go to sleep.
The roof top swimming pool – great set up and view of Colombo however here are the problems:-
• It is a very small area yet day users were in regular attendance not leaving much seating/space for hotel guests.
• On one day they were 10+ men basically taking up one half of the pool area and they were also drinking. No issue with having a drink but two bottles of Bacardi and glasses in the actual swimming pool!!
• On another day a group of 7 day users taking up too much space and they didn’t have money to pay their bill. Not fair on the staff.
• The parties held at night again are not fair to hotel guests trying to get to sleep but the music is quite easily heard on level 5. When they finally stopped a staff member was dragging the furniture across the tiles which again was quite loud on level 5. I actually had to get out of bed and go up to the pool area to ask the staff member to lift the furniture rather than dragging the furniture.
• The hotel needs to decide are they running a hotel or running a nightclub?
The building is not sound proof and we would not recommend to anyone if you want a decent nights sleep.

Booked the hotel for staying as Quarantine at ME Hotel then I have arrived from the airport , my first impression from their own picking Ttransport service without any delay it was amazing.

Get the PCR test as soon as checked then They encourage me to go the Room I have booked with a excellent facility specially providing a high speed Internet which used for my business work to be done without any disturbance. Also They have got the GYM and i wanted to thank for team making sure they are all well sanitized after used .

Great food 😋 excellent quality Service Following the Covid-19 guild line 👌. First day I surprised when I got my food it's actually more than enough what I choose my package meal, always Crew members looking after well,

Highly recommended ME hotel where all can be enjoye your Quarantine and of course our safety, Do not forget to meet Roshan and azeem & Others crew members they always treat well.

The rooftop bar has a fantastic view and the hotel receptionist who was on duty was very hospitable.

I went to the rooftop bar with my four friends on 25th Aug 2020 and we ordered 2 hot chocolates, 1 cappuccino,1 papaya juice, and 2 club sandwiches. drinks arrived after 20 minutes and hot chocolates were cold.sandwiches took 45 minutes to arrive. I informed a couple of times about the delay but no one bothered.

after 45 minutes we received cold and over fried French fries and rubbish sandwiches which were really disappointing from a place located in the heart of the Colombo city.
