  • Liked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities

Arranged airport pick~up but the driver was holding a different name so couldn't find him initially. Bed was comfortable but being situated next to the door, I was frequently woken up by people opening and shutting the creaky door. The bathroom was a bit dirty and all toilets were wet as they doubled as shower stalls. Hotel staff were super friendly and very helpful while the location was the best for catching an early train from Colombo Fort train station.

Excellent stay. But note that there is noise from downstairs where a bar is located. So it might not be good for light sleepers.
