Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The hotel is really nice, central location. The rooms are modern and clean and the staff is really friendly. We stood for 2 days only with breakfast included which is the standard continental one. We have enjoyed our stay there.

It’s definitely one of the best when it comes to the service and courtesy. Well located, close to all the main attractions. On our last day at Colombo state emergency was announced without a prior notice. Hotel team was very thoughtful and courteous to arrange dinner for us. Not only arranged but insisted that we eat before leaving. Small things but they go a long way in building the guest loyalty and trust.
Special mention for Piyumi and Milroy from the hotel team. Thank you

We had to face the horrible experience with this hotel. This happened to us on the 03rd January. We wanted to do the early check-in as we booked a day room and we have already got the email confirmation for the early check-in from the Front desk itself as they happy to serve it.
When we went there 2 hours early (10.00 AM as we mentioned to them ), The girl who was with (Dental Braces) were very rude to us and said they cannot give us the hotel till 1.00 PM. When we showed the email confirmation she started pointing the other girl who was new to the hotel and said she was it might be her and she doesn't have experience. This girl didn't know how to speak to the customers. Anyway she refused to offer the room for us and we had to go back with a really bad experience.
I don't recommend this hotel to anyone and requesting from the management to look in to this situation as we had to face a real bad experience as we came from 60km far away.

Worst experience, please avoid this place if you want a pleasant stay. We asked in the reception to pay at checkout since we had no cash in that moment, they said no prob, but the last day we asked for doing the payment and the reception guy said it was everything ok already, so we thought they finally charged us from our card. The surprise came when after an hour or so we started receiving threatening messages in the phone from the hotel staff. Apart from this, the windows in the room were broken, the towels were dirty and there were many ants. Forget about coming back to the hotel at the end of the day to a tidy room, they don’t clean or make the bed. The hotel is in a dark dead end and the reception and rooms are in different buildings, so you have to go to the street to go from one to another.

Hotel is very new, clean and near to the city center. We find that very convenient for us. You can walk to Colombo city center and nearby attractions.

Hotel room is bit small but everything is in place. I just missed a mirror in the room. Mirror is only available in bathroom.

Overall nice experience.

DO NOT TRUST THIS HOTEL. Had a horrible experience with them. I booked 6 rooms with them via booking.com. A week later, they messaged saying the pricing that was offered when I made my booking was wrong so I have to top up the differences which is not a little or else cancel the booking. Once booking.com was notified about this matter, booking.com said that the hotel have to honor the original price since that is the price offered when the booking was made. The hotel then started ignoring and blocking booking.com. Finally, few days later, when booking.com managed to reach them, they said they won't honor the original price nor will they negotiate to give a better rate or any discount. They kept messaging me to cancel the booking if I do not agree to pay the difference. And even booking.com were not able to provide any solution.
Don't book under them unless you are willing to take the risk of getting cheated or be left without a room on the day of your stay unless you pay their way higher rate that they will suddenly introduce.

just stayed here three nights. Rooms are comfortable with all the basics. Very friendly staff and helpful. Right now they do not have a restaurant but was told they will open next month. Ideal for business travellers.
