It sure looks like the oldest hotel in all of colombo. Built in 1837, it still has a lot of the old
world charm, combined with modernity here and there.
Rooms are pretty spacious but spartan, bed is super comfortable. It is frequented by a lot of
locals too. The restaurants and pubs are very good, all the staff is very helpful and ready for
any kind of assistance. the look outside the windows is not that great but you can see the sea
at a distance.
Tariffs are alright compared to the facilities offered.
Good place to stay all in all
