“budget hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2012

A budget hotel in the heart of city and close to beach but without any facilities. It has a korean and Chinese restaurant in house but for me it was a nightmare. Had to eat out good restaurants in walkable distance. Thai massage is what i liked in the hotel. Worth the money spent. Staff courteous but very lazy and slow. Housekeeping average.

Room Tip: Choose the sea view rooms they have good view but not great view

I don't know where to begin.

The sketchy looking entrance?

The freaky looking staff guy?

Well, my friends, this is just the beganing

After many hours of traveling and exhaustion my friend and i were just hoping to find a decant clean hotel to rest our head for a few hours.

but shortly our hopes and dreams got thrown out of the window( which, by the way, the room didn't have).

depressing, claustrophobic, creepy room is an understatement .

the bed felt like it was made of stone. the mirror was filthy and black. the bathtub was rusty and dirty. should i go on?/

please, save yourself from this awful place.

Staff are friendly, good money exchange rate. very close to shopping areas. I like the massage chair, Piano & the pool table in the ground floor. seems the building is pretty old.

Room Tip: Heart of Colombo

Honestly I have to blame myself for not pre booking our hotels in colombo .
This was mainly due to last minute changes to our itinerery resulted 2 x nights in colombo .
Had no option but to book this hotel due to other affordable hotels completly booked and the biggies too expensive for us to afford for maximum of 8 family members of ours .

The actual outside layout looks great where it gives you the impression of a decent hotel .
Reception area quite big and the service was ok whilst checking in and paying .
We paid £35 for room only x 4 rooms to make it £140 a day .
I was not expecting a 5 star service , all we wanted was a standard room with decent toliet/Bathroom facilities .

OMG! The room was absolutely discusting , very bad damp smell , toliets were not clean , pipes leaking and rusted shower, honestly I do not wish to continue !!!!!!! you can imagine yourself .

The bed was not comfortable either felt like sleeping on a rock .
Anyways we did not have any option but to stay so we stayed in town late as possible shopping ,eating etc ..... to avoid spending time here unbelievable !!!!!

This hotel is the worst we have stayed ever and I will not recomend it to anyone .
We had a fantastic time in Sri Lanka but this stay ruined at the end .

Room Tip: There are no good rooms at all

This is a hotel you have to book if you none of the other hotels are available... though the hotel is very economical, the rooms are sad... claustraphobic.... and the service is pathetic....
We took this hotel as we hadnt booked a hotel while we landed and just wanted a bed to sleep in... I wouldnt recommend this hotel to anyone
