This is hands down the best hotel in Trinco. There is without a doubt no hotel in the area that can compare to it. I booked this last minute online for my family and I as we are traveling around Sri Lanka for a month. The atmosphere and the staff and rooms are gorgeous. Since it's off season to travel... More

They gave me a room on 1st floor whereby a) internet was not working b) AC was not working c) even shower threw water... More

Really loved the experience, the staff is very courteous and helpful, since it was our special day, they had arranged a very yummy cake for us in our room, since we were very tired we were sleeping the entire day and eventually when we went out at around 9 at night, we had requested the housekeeping for cleaning the room,...

Certainly one of the better properties in Colombo. Having seen some negative reviews of the rooms, I had my reservations, particularly as I was booked in the lowest category (Deluxe) for this work trip. However, perhaps due to the fact that I arrived at the uncivilised hour of 1am, I was happily upgraded to a luxury ocean view room. Room:... More

Still one of the best hotels in Colombo, positive welcoming attitude by the staff. but very old rooms, we had water problem in the toilet, we were having brown iron water for few hours. other than that, we experienced a nice breakfast, good choices, great Japanese and Chinese restaurant. wish to stay there again.

Hotel has a great location, very good service, and wonderfull lobby. The pool is also good. The price of taxi from airport to the hotel is 3000 rupies around 20 dollars. Around one hour trip. Good conference hall on the top floor with a great view to the ocean.

It was my second visit to Taj. Even after 5 years Taj did not disappoint me from its first look. From the very step it self you will feel the luxurious and the most comfort. Every hotel may have small issues in their staff or facilities they provide. But overall Taj has taken a great effort to keep their good... More
