The location of the hotel was very odd - certainly not close to the usual sights one would expect to visit and just a little out of the way. However, having said that, getting to the sights wasn't a problem - the railway station was...More

I got a very enjoyable stay at this hotel. Location is good in Colombo, near the market area and not too far from the train station (walkable). The staff were very friendly for our whole stay. The rooms are nice and pretty new.
