We stayed for one night. The hotel is right at the ocean front in front of the train track. Very clean rooms with stylish, modern interieur. A bit too much concrete for my taste, but perfectly fine. The room on the second floor was spacious for a couple.
The train or the street in front of the hotel is not a problem, as the traffic slows down significantly after it gets dark.
We had a room on the second floor with a balcony facing the ocean front. Very nice and fine for 1-2 nights.
The staff was very polite and friendly. We had a great, Singalese breakfast in the morning.
I would recommend the hotel for 1-2 nights, perhaps 3 nights, but not longer. After that it gets a bit boring as it is not very centrally located. It takes 15-20 minutes to walk to the central beach front. There are a couple of fine restaurants nearby.
