Stayed at the Taj recently for a business trip. The hotel lobby has been renovated and is welcoming. The staff I must say are outstanding. The willingness of the room attendants and service staff is 5 star. However I have one main issue 1) Internet. How can it be, in this day and age that large hotels still charge high internet rates whereas small hotels nearby offer internet for free. It doesn't make sense and when you're travelling on business makes for a sour taste.
The price of the room, which is sold with +++ tax (seriously, just include the tax in the price) was $182. The prices in Colombo are rising rapidly so it's hard to tell what's value for money these days.
Other positives were the central location, opposite the galle green, breakfast, and gym.
Overall, a good experience.
