Cinnamon Red - PERFECTION!

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 24 Sept 2019via mobile
Wow wow wow!

A fantastic quick stay at this beautiful establishment;

Staff 10/10 - Friendly, more than accomodating, all speak fluent English and want to ensure you enjoy your stay
Breakfast 10/10 - By far one of the best hotel breakfasts. Range of items exceptional, also fresh. Coffee was quite good as well. Roughly $15AU with taxes and service, but certainly worthwhile
Room 9/10 - Fabulous bed comfort, quality linens, modern room styling and ample space. Air con adds a slight dampness to the air, but not much you can do in this humidity I guess. Our sink plug did not open after we closed, again not a huge issue.
Amenities 10/10 - INFINITY POOL VIEWS!!! Shame it was raining but on a hot day, I know where I would be spending my time. The rooftop bar has a great deal for bottle of wine and 2 tapas $45AU

Thanks for a wonderful stay, I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough for your Colombo stay :)

We stayed at this hotel on the last night of our 2 week holiday in Sri Lanka. A little bit of luxury for us. There are fabulous views from the rooms & the rooftop bar & pool are a wonderful place to spend an evening. The tapas was delicious. The staff are very friendly & efficient. The buffet breakfast was great, lots of options.

I like this hotel a lot and that is the reason why I selected it for our company as a base for our endeavors. Good location, nice staff, decent breakfasts with wide selection of everything you need. Rooms are clean and again, have everything what you need. I would consider this hotel nice 4*, even though officially it is just 3*.

Rooftop pool and bar is also very nice place to chill out.

Room tip: If you can, go for one of the top floors.

we just had a few nights staying at Cinnamon Red and it is a well located property close to many attractions and the hotel is modern and clean.
Rooms are very good and well fitted out
lifts can be a bit slow but otherwise all good
breakfast is adequate

Room tip: upper floors are best

Superb hotel with amazing staff for whom nothing is too much trouble. Evening dessert buffet was imsginative, delicious and made a tantalising display. Congratulations to chef Peter and staff. Try the mahalabia. Delicious.

I stayed at the Cinnamon Red from the 8th till 13th of September 19. My stay was pleasant. Without any fuss check in process was very quick. Throughout my stay I found the property cleaned on an on going basis. The Staffs were very pleasant and helpful. During my stay I used the top floor bar/restaurant. It was nice. I will consider this place certainly when I am visiting Colombo next.
