The GSH Hotel is located at a very convenient place in Wellawatte, Colombo. It is a good example of a very well run place. It is clean and provides great hospitality The staff members were friendly, informative and professional. This is not a 4 or 5-star hotel but the atmosphere is so special, it really felt like home to me and my family. We will recommend this hotel to couples and families. You won’t regret, just be there!!

I booked this hotel online in January 2020 for 4 days and when I went there, they did not allow us to stay since we came from a foreign country. When I asked for my money back said they will credit it in 3 days, still waiting for a response not even an email as a courtesy. Now the previous, decent staff had changed and the present staff is horrible like a bunch of rude thugs. Good that I came to know that the staff had changed never will stay again. How deceitful are they to hold on to my money? Never trust this hotel you never know what they are up to until you reach them personally.

Very convenient location and clean. Deluxe (standard) room and bathroom are small but good value for money. Super Deluxe room and bathroom are spacious. Comfortable beds and pillows eliminated sleeping issues in different environment. The most I liked about the hotel is the assistance from staff at all levels – very prompt, courteous and efficient.

Decent rooms with a good service. This is located on Galle Road hence getting around is less of a hassle. When you come out of the hotel you could get ample of road taxis or you could use Uber, pick me, kangaroo cab services. If you aren't familiar with the taxis, the friendly staff at the counters will help you. However the hotel is a three star hence you cant expect much but it's all about the convince of the location for a reasonable price.
