Stayed on the executive level for my time in Colombo. Shannon was working the reception for that level and was an amazing host. Shannon made our trip so much better! We only speak English and he was very easy to understand and had no translation issues.

This was a lovely stay. A good hotel, close to the train station, which is very convenient to take the early train to Kandy. A special thank you to Mr Lucky from the 7th floor lounge, who was very helpful and gave us good advices for our visit.

The hotel did lay on a complimentary car service so that guests could use the pool at the Cinnamon Grand. The Lakeside's pool is now completely restored and the front courtyard...

We chose the Cinnamon lakeside after reading all the rave reviews on trip advisor. Unfortunately we were not as happy with the hotel as the reviews we had read. this hotel is good. Don't get me wrong; but for a businessman and not so much for a family of 3. The dining room was amazing. The staff were so friendly...
