GOH is still Grand.
I must say the Grand Oriental Hotel surprised me in a good way. From the doorman who had been working for the hotel for over 35 years starting at age 16. To the view from the Harbour Room restaurant of the port of Colombo. I was very comfortable at this hotel, a large part of it was the staff that were always helpful and wanting to make sure that you were not left wanting. If you do not stay at the hotel at the very least go to the Harbour Room it is on the 4th floor the food is good the drinks are strong and the view of the port is over the top. I booked my reservation with breakfast and was glad I did. Very good western fare and Sinhalese/Indian food too. The food choices changed from day to day as well so it kept it interesting as well as tasty. Vegetarian and dairy foods were labeled to keep things easy. The GOH is located in a very historic section of the city that is close to government and business offices so lots of workers mixing with the tourists in the area. I stayed for four days and would do it again.

Nice Hotel but with restrictions
This is a very nice hotel, a like dated but still a nice hotel for couples and family. The hotel is right next to a police headquaters which makes is safe to stay. But if you're single and looking to enjoy Sri Lanka to the fullest with the someone you're not allow to bring that guess back to the hotel. Something that wasn't know until check-in. Other then that the hotel is a very nice place to stay. Me been single will not stay again there but still I recomment it to couples and family.

Old British Colonial atmosphere, built 1837, charm
It was perfect for us as we prefer hotels with historic flavor. The Grand Oriental Hotel at Colombo was built in 1837 by the British and of course doesn't have the glitz of newer hotels but the room was very large with high ceilings and a canopy bed and large windows overlooking the harbor, The 4th floor had a wonderful restaurant with a copious buffet. No pool as yet, although they are going to add one. But for us the atmosphere of colonial days was a treat as so much of the world now has cookie cutter rather antiseptic hotels. This one may be a bit frayed at the edges but is genuine. The location is near local markets and the port.
