“Home Far Away from Home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

Me, My mom & my brother stayed in ACA for 11 days when we were in Colombo. It was a great experience. I love their room a lot. Staff are great! Very friendly and always eager to help. The place is just a walking distance to some malls and there's a hospital just across the street. Given a chance to be back in Colombo, we'll surely stay in ACA again, no second thoughts.

I have been in Colombo for business trip for one week. Me and my partner stayed on ACA (Alfred Court Accommodation). I really love this place, amazing friendly staff, reception, service, everything. All was very good. I will come back when I will be in Colombo again.

The hotel is located at the heart of the city. Close to many places of visit, beach. Rooms are big enough. Room service can be improved a bit. Good hospitality. But, no parking space available. Should use the parking space of the nearby hospital. We enjoyed the stay there.

Yes...!!!
That's is the real word you can use.
I was staying at The Colombo City Hotel for last 3 days. I felt this place is much comfortable and have a good value for money.

I recommend this place for those who looking for a decent mid range hotel

Very good location, almost everything is walking distance! Friendly and helpfull staff, free breakfast! (though very simple). There are casino's, cafes's spar's and shopping just around the corner. Good value for money.

Room Tip: The rooms at the rear are less noisy as you are way from the road and sound of traffic.

It was the perfect location n and value for money. Just one bus from Fort railway statand walking distance to the Gall road. We dined at the Pagoda restaurant after a nice little walk. And the break first was ok too. Its more like grab a bite and run. So you rather eat out since there are many places from walking distance and even next door.
The room was very quite even though you could hear the next door noise to the wash room. But it didnt bother us. The television was set in perfect angle from the bed. It was the BEST television experience we both ever had. And there were hundreds of channels. The bed was huge and comfortable too. They provided us with enough towels as well.
Colombo eye catches such as Gall face grounds, Dutch hospital, Colombo Museum, Mt Levenia beach, etc....are quite near and easy to reach from this hotel. After few steps theres the bus halt with the buses to go any distance you want. So weather you stay indoors or out this will be the perfect place to spend the night in Colombo city.

Hi Madushi,

We thank you for your wonderful review.

Our central location is definitely the a boost. Our breakfast is absolutely simple. We did not start off an B&B but decided to provide breakfast just for the satisfaction and convenience of our customers.

Our Satellite TV has all the channels that our service provider provides. We don't believe in limiting channels. Personally, I face these issues when I myself travel and it was my primary concern not to deprive the ACA customers of anything we are able to completely provide.

We loved having you and your hubby with us and look forward to having you with us again!
