Positive Reviews

Central location.

Everything that guests needed was in easy walking distance to Bansei by Hotel J. Dive schools, restaurants, shops, and massage parlours were all in close proximity, and this hotel certainly couldn't be faulted for the spectacular oceanfront location.

Wi-Fi win.

Guests were pleased that Wi-Fi came through loud and clear at this hotel. If watching a movie with lots of buffering isn't your idea of a good time, you should experience a smooth connection here.

Good customer service.

While staff weren't described as overly friendly, they seemed to get the job done. Guests said that hotel staff were generally responsive, and tried hard to satisfy requests. What they lacked in warmth, they made up for with efficiency, according to several guests.

Negative Reviews

Budget accommodation.

Guests commented that this hotel was priced less than its counterparts, and as such, guests noticed a no-frills approach to amenities. Missing were bottles of water, and toiletries like shampoo, conditioner and soap. Guests also felt that rooms were on the small side, but of the 30 rooms, some might be bigger than others.

Earplugs could be necessary.

Guests sensitive to noise might have a problem with Bansei by Hotel J. If you aren't lucky enough to get an oceanfront room, you might have to contend with dusty and noisy Galle Road. Guests reported hearing traffic at all hours of the night, including honking horns. And while the ocean drowns out the noise from the other side of the building, the crashing waves were too loud for some.

Might want to skip the restaurant.

Guests weren't complimentary of the hotel restaurant, and felt that the menu needed a makeover. Overpriced food that was poorly presented made guests lose their appetite, with many wishing they had explored other nearby dining options.
