“Good Value for Colombo”
Reviewed 7 August 2013

In a city of very expensive, overpriced hotels, the Taibah presents an unusual sense of good value in Colombo. Located down a quiet backstreet near to the coast, this is a well-run hotel, ideal for a short stopover.

We stayed for one night in order to catch the early train to Polonarruwa the next morning. Sadly the first room we were given had a terrible smell owing to the building work taking place behind the hotel. We asked to move and without hesitation, they offered us a second room. Sadly the aircon was making a racket, so they gave us a free upgrade to a much larger room, again without any fuss whatsoever.

We ordered takeaway as we were too tired to venture out, and the manager even brought our food to our room and returned with our change a short time later.

This hotel is not the Ritz by any means, but is perfect for a short stay to explore Colombo, or for backpackers in need of a great value place to sleep for the night, with excellent service and a comfy bed.

Room Tip: Front facing may be better
