    Fabulous

    There's a functional lift in this hotel unlike many other budget hotels. Staff were good and helpful, try to do their best with their capabilities. Location is handy.

    Bathroom was untidy, toilet seat was loose, no toilet papers, water taps appears to be blocked and directions to be repositioned. Due to meal orders supplied to rooms, corridors and stairs full of plates and cups with left over food which will create an insects filled environment eventually. Owners may have to spend on updating facilities.

    Superb

    Basic, clean, quiet, no friils, but completely satisfactory. Great value! Convenient for central Colombo, but out of the way for business in Fort.

    Staff were very warm and friendly but then so is the entire population of Sri Lanka.

    Room cleanliness left a little to be desired, and the location is too far from the city centre, for a similar budget hotel with A/C and 30 Cable channels I recommend Hotel Sun Hill on the seaside in Colombo 03.

    Good

    The staff was very helpful and friendly. Mr Ajit even brought a fridge for our room even though it was not included for our room. The standard room was spacious with nice views.

    The location is off the beaten path with no nice food or shopping around. The bathroom leaks and kept the floors wet. Housekeeping does not clean the rooms after the morning.

    Good

    Hotel was good overall but don´t expect too much. Breakfast reasonalbe but nothing special. In the upper rooms nice views over the city. Free Wi-Fi service in the lobby available.

    Next to the Hotel is nothing of interest. Even no Restaurant is nearby.

    Guest rating

    The staff were friendly and helpful, and the hotel was in a reasonably good location for a walk to Cinnamon Gardens and Kollupitiya during my short stay in Colombo.

    The hotel's very basic and I wouldn't really have wanted to stay for more than one night.
