“Great value for great service”
Reviewed 16 April 2013 via mobile

This really is a little gem in Colombo. The hotel is a short tuk-tuk ride from the centre and very convenient for everything. We only stayed one night as we were flying home the next day, but the room was comfortable and clean with a large bathroom. The staff were really helpful and gave us some good tips on where to go in Colombo to get a feel for the city and a great place for dinner. The outside terraces are lovely and perfect for catching a few last minute rays before heading to the airport. The breakfast was also excellent. Highly recommend this hotel.

Reviewed 25 February 2013

Was booked for my last day in Colombo before my late night departure flight.

Very friendly welcome by the staff and manager.

Was booked for their Discovery room but was upgraded to the Classic Room (also on first level). While checking out the well-appointed room (see photos), realised the sliding fill-sized glass panels at the side don't lock properly. I was fiddling with it when the manager and the chef suddenly appeared from outside wondering what I was doing. I believe they wanted to discuss dinner with me (you can either choose from the set menu or get the chef to customise something for you). They verified that the lock has issues and immediately offered their 2nd level Classic Room to me. So onto Level 2 we went.

Wow, what a difference, be it size, design, furnishing, or ambience! Definitely bigger and more cosy and comfy! (See photos) The bathroom is hidden behind one of the full-sized wardrobe doors. Everything seems to be included: aircon, ceiling fan, LCD TV, side table, free wifi...

There's a small pool on the 2nd level and a bigger pool on the first floor.

Dinner was nicely done and ready at my requested time.

Had a comfortable sleep before waking up for my flight out.

Definitely recommended.
