The Ocean Front is a small boutique hotel tucked in a corner of one of the busiest areas of colombo. Its got an excellent location right in front of the sea and the train tracks. If you dont like the noise of trains then this ones not for you. But for us it was beautiful to wake up in the mornings to the sound of waves and trains. We arrived in this hotel pretty late at night when they were having some problem with the water connection. So we were made to wait in the lobby for almost an hour. Annoying but the manager was very apologetic about it and gave us free drinks and snacks to pass our time. We stayed in this hotel for 1 night before heading to Kalutara and another night on our way back. The room that we got on the first night was small and the windows did not have any locks. However it was neat and clean and the beds were very comfortable. The room that we got on our way back was really big with a balcony right outside which had a jacuzzi and over looked the sea. The food was pretty decent too, nothing out of the ordinary. The chef would go out of his way to make special dishes only for us. Overall it was a pleasant stay , the staff was very friendly. However it was not worth the price we paid for it. With a little extra money we could have booked a Hilton or a Taj Samudra!!
