    PATHETIC & CON ARTISTS!!!! Chkd in Mar2 & chkd out Mar4. My wife opted to stay in the hotel on Mar3 & go to the spa,pool & ordered room service, Hotel Coffee shop Mar 2. We had a late dinner around 9.30pm,Mar3 & my wife gets diarrhea past midnight from dinner ordered from room service. I called front desk to ask for Imodium,was told a Nurse would call,who winds up prescribing buscopan (pain killer) rather than immodium. I insisted for Imodium, they kept pushing to get a doctor to visit her.I requested to discuss with doctor via phone which was turned down.I guess they wanted to bill us for Doctor Visit. We called a pharmacy past midnight Rajya Osusala, Union sq,2.5 km.away & spoke to Mahpakshi who agreed to sell us, Inspite of Shangrila Mgmt claiming they could not purchase over the counter. Requested Mgr to pickup, who obliged & brought imodium along with Rs 1000 taxi chgs,he ensured my wife sign for. Upon checking out I was billed Rs 2000 on my invoice which I paid in full with my credit card. I insisted on seeing the Taxi chgs as my wife had signed upon request of the Night Mgr & were jerked around.I kept insisting to get my invoice.I finally got to see my invoice which was tempered as the original amount my wife signed for was in Blue ink & the altered amount is in Black ink,altered from Rs 1000 to Rs 2000.I currently have the original invoice in my possession. The Duty Mgr made an offer to retract theTaxi charges from Rs2000 to Rs1000 which I declined.

    above and beyond!
    the shangri-la hotel flag has never let me down but the newly opened colombo location in sri lanka, was above and beyond. we used our free night room to get a two-room executive suite with balcony and not once did we feel like they were treating us differently because we weren’t paying (of course we planned to spend at the property). medini with guest services checked us in and she was a pleasure. we quietly mentioned it was upcoming to our 10th anniversary and this was the last night of our month long trip to celebrate it, and while having a cocktail in the horizon lounge prior to dinner we were surprised with fresh flowers, a huge chocolate mousse cake and a bottle of prosecco! how sweet and thoughtful ... above and beyond! we had dinner at the capital grille and bar. it was fabulous as well, steak cooked perfectly, while our chilled seafood platter was reasonably priced, massive and delicious. the room was brand new, a few details missing but divine nonetheless and the bedroom completed and comfortable as could be! icing on the cake, we requested a late checkout due to our flight being at 2:30am ... they allowed us to check out at 5pm with no extra charge. in room dining forgot a couple items but fixed the matter before we could blink an eye - that’s 5 star service. will be back soon colombo!

    Another excellent stay at a Shangri-La!
    Shangri-La Colombo helped us organize a tour and driver around central and south Sri Lanka. The tour was beyond our expectations, and kept in touch with us even through a staff transition. We we very pleased with the hotel staff service and the room. This is why we keep returning to Shangri-La hotels in every city where they have a presence.

    Beautiful Hotel in a great area
    Beautiful property. We’ve stayed in many Shanghai La hotels and this is of the equal high standard in every area. Our room was beautiful and tastefully decorated. Beddding extremely comfortable. Turn down service provided. Great breakfast in Horizon Club lounge. Very helpful staff who arranged an afternoon tour of the city for us. Doormen very professional and friendly and lounge staff more than obliging, going that extra mile to ensure our stay was more than amazing! Thank you Prem for all the information about your beautiful city and personal directions to the Ministry of Crab restaurant. Could not fault this hotel. Highly recommend.
