rip you off if you want to print.
nice hotel in great location. However they charge $.60 a page to print and didnt tell me only after i printed 50 pages for something i needed. This rate is outrageous espically in a country where for the amount they charge you can get a meal. I have traveled to over 160 countries never had i been charged for printing in a hotel and this hotel charges $300 a night and they have the nerve to charge so much for printing.

Our stay in Sankara
Sankara have very friendly staff from security infront and back, to house keepng. I congradulate the mgmt for all staff attitude to make us comfortable in every way. Great food and quality deco thru out building. The only thing that could have changed was the placement of batroom by the bed, should have been by the door. It' s a true 5 star hotel.

Good place, but expensive meals and no garden
This hotel is located in convenient place near to 2 shopping centers. Hotel itself is very good because of 5 star hotel, however, there are two weak points. One is too much expensive meals. Breakfast is KS 2,700 and buffet dinner is KS 4,000. Another is no garden.

Very Good8.0
Great business stay hotel with expensive food
The check in process was amazingly slow and took almost 45 mins. The room was great but TV was not working and neither was the kettle so general maintenance of the rooms was questionable. Good insulation so no neighbor noise. Quiet. Good garden via over Jacaranda hotel. Convenient location for business meetings either at hotel which is quite pricy for food and snacks - better cross the road to Sarit centre that has News Cafe, Java, Brood and other small eateries to hold a meeting. Also business services like DHL, copying print center etc. Great centre for quick on-the-run-business. Hotel is pricy for food and tips. Ok for a beer but definitely go out for food.
