The hotel is far from the city so you have to take a tuc-tuc to go anywhere. The train passes in front of the hotel everymorning many Time so don't expect to sleep. They dońt have hot water and they charge you for wifi after 1go. The wifi almost Never works... The room is not that clean and i had to unplug a lamp a take out the light bulb because it was flashing all night long.
This would not have bothered me but it did because the staff is awfull!!! They charged me 20$ us for an early checkin, even if i was only 2 hours before. At night i asked them advice for a good place to eat ans they told me to go to burger king. I touhgt they were joking but they also suggested KFC....... We had some problems with a tuc-tuc driver and they Never helped us.
Don't go there! They are much nicer place in colombo and way cheaper!!

Hotel not expensive but a bit far away from the city center. The staff was correct and polite. Unfortunately the room (specially the bathroom) was really dirty. The breakfest not worth paying, specially when it was better and included in the price on the other hotels /guest houses we did stay in Sri Lanka.

Hôtel pas cher mais un peu loin du centre-ville. Le staff est correct et poli. Malheureusement la chambre (surtout la salle de bain!) très sale et le petit-déjeuner (qui était mieux et compris dans le prix de chambre dans les autres hôtels/guest houses) ne vaut pas la peine de payer.

We stayed two nights in the beginning of our trip and one night in the end. For the first stay we were placed in a room on the first floor. The noise from the Galle road and the trains passing by was keeping us awake. The bathroom could have used some good scrubbing. On our second stay we were placed in a room on the 4th floor. It was like a different hotel-very nice room, clean bathroom, no noises. On a downside-poor breakfast. Staff are helpful. It's far from the centre and by a super busy road. There are some nice restaurants nearby.

I loved my stay here. Got a Sea facing room. Breakfast was Indian like. Rooms are clean and house keeping is active.
All the hotel staffs were positive and friendly and ready to help tourists.
Wifi is strong and got hassle free connection through out my stay.
I will recommend this hotel for a decent budget stay in Colombo any day.

Room Tip: I do not think it would matter if its a sea facing room or not. The fact is that the hotel is so clo...

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.
