We stayed here two nights when we arrived into Colombo, the location across from Galle Face is fantastic (take advantage of the night markets for food they are wonderful). However, despite the initial impression of grandeur in the lobby the hotel is tired, and run down in some parts. Currently in is undergoing renovation and there was jackhammering through the day, making the room very noisy. The breakfast was extensive however a little overpriced.
Once the hotel has had its refurbishment completed hopefully it will return to a hotel where the rooms match the brilliance of the lobby and be a more relaxing place to stay.
