Massive and excellent breakfast area. The rooms are basically 3 star quality. The hotel has a number of rules especially towards corkage in their bars and hence is not large group friendly. Apart from that do not leave any valuables in the room. Atleast 6 people in my group lost some money (clever that only part of the money was...

Best place in Colombo who provides a good service for a reasonable rate. Café 64 is the most reasonable place you can find to have a good meal for a low price. High tea is very good here plus California grill / Arabic restaurant food is a great value for money. Coffee shop is open 24 hours. Very friendly staff.

Worse hotel ever. Not a five star. Staff are not welcoming. Stayed I the precidential flour with my family. Horrible service. The one and only hotel who charged us for milk for babies. No other hotel ever charges in the world. Horrible food. Please do not stay here. There are many more lovely hotels in Colombo to stay.

I went recently with my office colleagues for Buffet Lunch. It was priced at LKR 2000 and with the discount it came as LKR 1200 Net. Good variety of food available (Chinese, Indian, Western, Sri Lankan etc). Place was packed so if for Lunch, advisable to book in advance and be there at least by 12 p.m.

Excellent Place to stay. Very good staff. Nice food. Value for money in terms of services, stay, locality etc. Though a well old hotel it is maintained in cleanlier manner. Hotel is put up right in front of Colombo sea and has an excellent sea view from room.

This is an excellent hotel for a stay in Colombo. There is a gym (a bit old), pool, steam room and rooftop tennis court. Rooms were clean, although space was a little limited and the bathroom was quite dated. The dinner and breakfast buffets are excellent and there is a wide variety of food available. Staff are very attentive -...
