Wonderfully efficient staff.
The majority of reviews comment on staff being helpful and friendly, from the lobby staff through to the restaurant waiters and the cleaners.
Very clean and comfortable.
Many guests comment on the cleanliness and well-kept nature of the hotel as a whole, particularly in the rooms where a turn-down service is offered.
Rooms in the old wing need refurbishment.
Whilst the rooms are kept clean, it seems that the older wing of the building is in need of refurbishment, since the decoration and bathrooms don’t seem to match the main core of the building.
Location is convenient but not glamorous.
The hotel is situated on the beach, right next to Galle Face, close to both Colombo airport and the main centre of Colombo. However, this is very much a business district and does not seem to be the most picturesque or glamorous location.
A number of guests report temperamental Wi-Fi that is hard to connect to and often loses connection.
