Attended with friends for a get-together dinner. The service was ok and the food was alright for the function, though a bit expensive. There is a small car park in front of the hotel but could get filled up if there is a big group. If you are lucky, road side parking is available. There is only 1 lift (elevator)...

We (2 adults, and 2 kids, as tourists) arrived early (6 am) at this hotel, and the manager who initially said that there was no room available for early check-in, after talking to our local rented driver, gave us a just-checked out room by someone else. It was OK as we all needed to crash, and family was exhausted. They...

If you are staying a night or a couple of it, then the hotel is ok. The breakfast, although not a big variety, is delicious, the staff good, rooms spacious and the location is great. But it ends here. The hotel gives you a felling of congestion and its not maintained greatly. The wifi is not reliable.

The below average rating of this hotel is true! Room carpet stinks, poor maintenance of all areas. All other reviews tells these - what I would like to share is that never depend on hotel for pick up and drop for airport. They did not arrange pick up and after wasting money using international roaming and six calls later, the...

Good thing they had a pool! Otherwise not close to anything special. Booked through booking.com. they cjrged my visa card for the entire stay and transfer even though booking specifically states that you pay on arrival. Not happy about that. They also arranged for drop of at airport and taxi was 25min late!

Wanted to stay here for a few nights. The rooms stank. The bathrooms were very grotty. A loose light fitting out of its ceiling socket just hanging. Very very basic. I would rate it as a one star. I didn't stay for the duration of my trip. Way overpriced at US$70 per night for a twin room.

We have booked this hotel for two days mainly because of the pool there. On expedia the price for two days should be 53USD/2days. The final price charged to us was 140USD. Be carefull when booking this on expedia they charge you in indian rupies which is easy to replace with sri lankan rupies but the price is double. We...

I thought to Recommend the Cafe named "The Vibe" where i used to have my break fast and lunch most of the times. The Vibe is attached to Janaki Hotel it is situated just next to the Janaki hotel's entrance. You must try their Cheese toast which is available on order through out the day. It cost only Rs 200,...

As I travel back & forth from Myanmar I decided to stay at Janaki Hotel. Affordable Prices which includes breakfast. Plenty of restaurants in the vicinity. Comfortable rooms & a very nice bar. Friendly staff. Will stay there in the future.

This is the second consecutive year we have booked rooms at this hotel, as we found it ideally located in Colombo, for our purposes, and most of all it offered the high standard we expected, comparable to good hotels we have stayed in during our frequent tours in Sri Lanka, Europe and Asia. From here we were able to get...

“Ring reception direct and discuss your needs and if booked direct you may get it at a much cheaper price than going through website agents. The two rooms we booked were excellent, very spacious, clean and equipped with all required facilities, including large attached bathrooms. As the hotel is located in a semi residential area, some rooms may have views looking into neighbouring residences, like one of our rooms had, though it did not bother me, as we out during the day and returned to have a good nights rest and a good breakfast (choice of Sri Lankan and Western) the next morning.”
