This happens to be the best Hotel in Colombo. The best location ( overlooking the furious Sea), great architecture, well appointed rooms, good service and very very decent food. Everything stand out. My only observation. It just does not seem to be a Taj. The opulence that we have come to associate with Taj properties is just about missing here. If you do forget for a minute that this is a Taj property, you will Appreciate the hotel much better.
BTW, the cute little towel elephants that housekeeping keeps on your bed are so so adorable

Room Tip: Take the sea facing rooms. Slightly higher tariff, but worth it.

The Hotel has a great location actually. You can prepare your plans easily. It has small but nice pool. Breakfast-lunch-dinner was weak, should have more choices and more taste. The Grill steak house in the hotel is also good,even its too expensive when we compare it to outside or hotel s kitchen. But the worst thing was they let you wait like 1 hour to get the steak. You can be crazy lile i was... Prefer the hotel s club in the night. Even it sucks for the enterance , if you r a male then you have to pay a fee,what the fck is that!!! They need to have more experoence and chase the models of other big Hotels. Unless people will write these kinds of comments here or anywhere. Just the stuff was great. So friendly and cooperative.

We stayed here for 3 nights in May-June. We loved the place. Great location and staff. Rooms are little dated. However, very clean and good personal touch. Breakfast and Internet are very good. I heard some noise on Saturday night (most probably from night club). They addressed to the issue and also offered to change the room.

Would stay here again.

The staff at the Taj Samudra Colombo were incredible. It was my first time in Sri Lanka and I didn't know what to expect but at the recommendation of a friend I stayed at the Taj Samudra Colombo and I wasn't disappointed. During my stay I ate at four different restaurants on the property and all were great. The spicy cashews were great at the Japanese restaurant and the steak was amazing at the steakhouse.

Room Tip: Get an ocean view room if you can.

The property location is amazing. The restaurants dish out good stuff.
Service is good. Rooms are pretty bad. I stayed on the 3rd floor. Rooms are old. Walls are full of mold.Flooring was broken.
They changed my room to the 5th floor.
The carpets in the corridor are old and musty.
Not expected of a Taj property.

Room Tip: Ask them for renovated rooms
