The hotel is the oldest hotel in Srilanka and boasts of its glorious past.It's located in a high security area being close to the port and near the president's residence. We booked the hotel through an agent at the airport, of course in expectation of more business in from of srilanka tour, which we eventually obliged. I'd strongly recommend the agent 'Zahran' of Lanka tours at the colombo airport. We got the hotel much cheaper (USD 50) than what we would have had to pay directly. (about $65) The entrance and reception areas are good, The rooms are slightly musty with a tinge of smell. The bugffet breakfast is great.
The dining area upstairs has bar offers a good view of the harbour, but photography is not allowed.
all in all your experience would largely depends on how much you've paid for it. anything below USD 70 is VFM.More
