Good Stay
Very good stay. Kind and attentive to my needs. Good breakfast. Convenince store 2 minutes away. Tea shop 1st floor with great cakes. Easy to walk to the center of city. I never used tuktuk taxi. Best to make tours through Sri Lanka tourist office, 20 minute walk but tour pick up at Ocean Front. Everything worked out great. Would definitely stay again.

Sweet Stay in Colombo
A very lovely small hotel with a wonderful view of the ocean! The staff is very warm and friendly. The room was huge and comfortable. Wifi was fast and steady. The breakfast was very delicious. Easy walk to downtown Colombo and plenty of restaurants around the area. The airport transfer was perfect!

Tiny Colombo Gem
Really nice little find for Colombo; clean and comfortable and you can't beat the sliver of ocean view you get. You will hear trains constantly, so bring earplugs if it bothers you, but I love it. Staff was over-the-top friendly and nothing was too much bother for them. They didn't even charge me for the laundry I sent out. I'd definitely return.

A little bit out of the centre, probably is best described as a 2.5 star hotel, considering that the Galle Face is a 4 star hotel.

The hotel manager didn't know how to interact at all. He was super rude whenever we asked him questions. Also the washrooms stink. Do not stay here at all
