This is a modern hotel ideal for one night after arriving in Colombo. I did this with a group, and we stayed at the end of our week's holiday travelling around. The rooms are modern, some are quite small, but clean - bathroom adequate. My main complaint is the terrible noise around the hotel, outside by the lifts, a dreadful...

Had a great time at Global Towers, Columbo. Basic comfort in the room which are like apartments so do not expect much. The old television sets, no AC in room and simplistic nature of things felt like a setback initially. Great food, good breakfast spread, public sand beach opposite to the hotel after crossing some railway lines made it a...

Stayed in this hotel as part of our holiday trip to Sri Lanka. The location is good - on the sea. View from sea-facing room is beautiful - the sea, the Marine Drive and the railway track. Good hotel, nice staff, good service

I stayed in a fee different single rooms in Global Towers. Some were bigger and better appointed than others. The ones on the 5th floor were best, larger than the rooms on the 3rd floor. Global towers has an excellent Indian food buffet on Saturday nights. Not cheap by Sri Lankan measures but excellent tasty and fresh dishes. Breakfast buffet...

Pretty poor... pool permanently closed (due to high chlorine levels). Location poor. Restaurant food very very poor quality for what you pay (KFC next door is better if that is possible) and the bar is pretty inept. Why is there permanently a policeman on the front door beside the door staff. Choose somewhere better than this place.

We stayed here for 2 nights. On the 1st night, my mother and I got such a small room at the far end of the hotel, that there was barely any place to even move. When we complained, we were told that this was because we have requested for twin beds in the room, while the room can accommodate only...

On the whole I enjoyed my stay in this Hotel. The room was well furnished and the staff were very polite and courteous! It was clean everywhere and maintained very well. My only suggestion is the staff at the reception should be well informed and follow up should be proper.
