I was mislead with the name " Grand Oriental Hotel ". The only thing which is convincing is te location other than nothing is worth your penny. Reception service was pathetic. They promised free internet while booking online but once i reached there they said some technical error in free service so use other internet service which cost around US $6 per hour.

The room, the furnitures, the A/C, TV etc were at worst condition. Everything were broken. Seperate hot water for each room so if you need hot water, you need to wake up early and switch on the heater.

They say it is a 3 star hotel but it is worst than a ordinary road side motel or lodge.

I would never recommend this hotel for anyone.

The reception staff were very unfriendly and they recycle the food, we had food poisoning very badly, my colleague is from India and regularly eats street food, even his system could not stand up this VERY DANGEROUS TRIAL!!

Grand old structure, right next to the docks. Needs a bit of livening up though. Once barracks, it's rooms though cozy still retain acertain dinginess.
Great breakfast spread.

Old hotel built in the 1920;s with 4 poster beds but has not be maintained well. I was on the 3rd floor and during the night I heard what I think was rat in the roof space. When complained to the hotel desk I was asked if the rat had come to see me when I said it had not they said that is good then

The breakfast is very standard but kettles are not provided would not go back there.

Arrived early 9am and was checked in Early. Great room, high ceilings, old school but comfortable. Room and sheets were clean. Has a fabulous dinner buffet for US$10 with an awesome view. Trust me there is little choice in Colombo, so this was the best for the price. Its close to the beach and a great central spot. You can use the galle park hotel pool for US$10 so I just did that. Staff were lovely. Just tip a little and it will make your stay a little more enjoyable (50 cents, etc)
