Man Fong, 2-night business trip
Verified Hotels.com guest review

8/10 Very good

Clean and comfortable hotel. Staff very helpful and friendly. Is located south of the main hustle and bustle of Colombo, which we appreciated as it was very quiet. You can get a tuk tuk from end of the hotel's road to the main part of Colombo for 300 rupees; much preferable to staying amongst the constant stream of traffic and tooting horns of the centre.

Compared to other hotels in CMB this hotel is ok
Compared to other hotels in Colombo this hotel is ok, for this price this is one of the best but its a bit lower standard for a three star hotel. Hotels are expensive in colombo so this hotel is cheaper compared to other hotels of the same standard. Hotel is in between Galle Road and marine drive close to Majestic city, so the location is convenient. Hotel offer fast wifi and 24 hour room service
