My stay at this hotel was rather short, about 12hrs.

If you want a hotel near the airport, this is the best hotel in Colombo. The staff were excellent and probably the best customer service we have ever experienced, and we have travelled extensively. The ideal airport if you are in transit or for sighting the local area

A real gem of a hotel. Only minutes away from the airport and yet a wonderfully plush hotel. We were so pleasantly surprised. The room was spotless as was the rest of the hotel. Breakfast was amazing! Just sad we couldn't have stayed longer.
