“'Hats off and in reciprocation.....'”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2014 via mobile

For the great service namely- the complimentary breakfast (tasty indian and western mix of food) and all brought on time when called for it- 'to the cleaners must say who did a wonderful job' on the cleaning of our room and making it cozy as possible and comparing to the other hotels around this could be called reasonable with facilities provided to almost match its price and best for business or short stays. As for our room- it was the best from all chosen as looked around on the available rooms and why said being --- the beautiful and scenic waves and dazzle of the ocean along with nothing but the quality natural breezy swaying trees outside (if necessary to open a window to smell some fresh air thats though having some cool air-conditioning) and birds to create bliss and peace within one's mind when seated and just gazing quietly. All in all a respectful and humbled staff at your beck and call! 'Thank you' (room204)

Me and my husband stayed here for 2 nights. We had to make a last minute booking here as our booking at another hotel was not ready. But thankfully, there was room available here. We got the business suite. It is a spacious comfy room with a decent bath. We had free breakfast at the hotel. It was Indian breakfast. The free wifi is fast.The hotel is located close to the beach. So taking a walk in the evening is not an issue. There is an unguarded railway track beside the beach, so be careful while crossing to the beach. There are good eateries nearby the hotel. We particularly enjoyed the Jaffna restaurant - Yaal. They serve great food and price is very affordable. So is the pricing in the hotel for the rooms (forget to mention it earlier). Booking cab from the hotel is possible, if your want to go sight seeing or shopping. Quite a few places to see in Colombo. The hotel personnel are friendly. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants a budget stay in Colombo.

Room Tip: Opt for the sea facing rooms, if available.

Our room was big with a big bed. The room was towards the beach and we had a nice breeze coming in. The train line is between the room and the beach, during the day it is a bit noisy. We slept with aircondtioning so we are not sure if there were trains at night, because we didn't have any noise. Wireless was good, breakfast very simple and the room was clean with all you need (power outlets, coffee and tea, basic toiletries etc.). Water pressure is a little weak. Staff is helpful and knowledgable. All in all very good value for money.

Although the building was new, they had decent wi-fi, the staff was positive and the linen was clean, nothing else was right - the room was very small, the window of our room was towards the train line so we had noise all night, the electricity wiring was badly made, so the lights were flickering in the dark all night, there was not even a shower curtain or decent air conditioning.

Great location .but 10 steps to enter the front entrance . Staffs are great. Rooms are over looking the sea side. Price is not bad compared to surrounding hotels. Needs lots of make over at the lobby.as well as lifts lights are so dim.showers are slow water pressure.

A good, clean modern hotel but very close to the railway lines which were very noisy. Walk across the railway lines and you are on the beach. The bedrooms were very modern but the beds were on the short size, I am 5'10" and found them to be about 6" too short.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the Ocean side are quieter
