“Centrally located”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

The pool area is the highlight, shame that the pool closes fairly early.

We had a room in the old building which was very different from the pictures we saw online.
Very basic and clean room, friendly staff.

Decent value given location.

Room Tip: Aim for the new building

Swimming pool on roof is obvious draw here. Rooms lovely also. Restaurant is very expensive by sri Lankan standards but nice. In the centre of the action on Galle road would highly recommend as a good cheap-middle of the road hotel!

I liked this hotel in the heart of Colombo. Clean and comfortable rooms with all the necessity staff. I just missed hair dryer a bit ..
Roof top was nice with the pool. There was relaxing music and wonderful view. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

I have stayed here twice for business trip and it was great. My room had a great view of the sea and it's comfortable enough - a good size with a nice bathroom. The bed was very comfortable, the sheets were cleaned and spotless every time I returned. The food and staffs are great. I love the hospitality of every staff I encounter. They have a laundry service and it was excellent but you need to tick or put the "Do not Disturb" sign if you don't have any laundry coz the Laundry lady will wake you every morning just to ask/collect your laundry. The wifi system is a bit troublesome since they required you to sign in every time you connected to the network.

Room Tip: Book the room in the new wing. Try the grilled Lamb in there Room Service.

Stayed here for one night, it's so overpriced for what you actually get....we booked two rooms, one room had twin beds, asked to change it and they wouldn't. Said they were full, we didn't see another customer (literally) in the hotel, also it was a smoking room, the room was also grubby, carpets, mirrors etc..location is good, however views from the pool area are not exactly scenic, we personally won't be going back at we felt it's way to overpriced for what you get.....good lesson learnt!

I have stayed here twice for business trip. this hotel is cheaper than many other hotels. However the service is still very good. book the new wing for modern rooms. and check out the roof top bar and swimming pool for spectacular sea view.

This relatively modern hotel fronts onto Galle Road and back onto the Ocean. That said, the area isn't attractive. The pool looks out over the ocean and has a bar as well.
The rooms are spacious, well appointed and nice big bathrooms.

The staff were helpful and efficient.

There are 2 buildings in the hotel, the restaurant is in the lower floor of the 2nd building. They have a great selection of quality Sri Lankan and Western foods. The breakfast buffet wasn't huge but enough of a selection of good quality food.
