Stayed at the hotel for half day while transiting through Colombo. Very big hotel but is old and dated. Exterior looks shabby and run down. Rooms are strictly Ok. A/C was working fine in our room. Old TV with very few channels and those too had bad reception. Bathroom was also OK with hot & cold shower. Towels and toiletries... More

Pros: Close to the airport (under 1km). Airport transfer available (500LKR in June 2016). Rooms are kind of ok with hot water available. You get what you pay for. Good at Indian restaurant is decent. Cons: Road leading upto the airport is not safe even for a causal walk (especially for women). Didn't have a good experience. Use hotel transport... More

Don't stay if u have too. Can't close window with mosquitoes coming in. AC sucks and broken. Beds are for laying with hoes. No bathroom amenities. No wifi. They charge 50 bucks a night and will not give half day rates if u want to stay for a couple hours before ur flight.

We used the hotel for a five hour stop over. As per all reviews it is a bit dodgy but beds are good and air cond worked well. Most importantly it's five minutes from the terminal and had a bus service. The Indian food in the restaurant was surprisingly good. I would stay again if I needed to fill in... More

Like other reviewers, we were put up here after a delay in our AirAsia flight. From the outside the hotel looks polished, but inside it is dated and quite musty. Hotel staff were helpful but our room had no towels, smelt very strange and had mould in the bathroom. The beds were clean though, and we used the wifi in... More

Booked online as the closest available accommodation to the airport for a very early flight. Check in was fine although felt staff were not engaging. Room was a great disappointment. Large but poorly maintained with peeling wall paper. Bathroom adequate but tired and not cleaned satisfactorily. Swimming pool looked abandoned ! Meal at adjacent restaurant was OK. General summary -... More

If you just transit in Colombo, not going anywhere, maybe you can choose this hotel. Not the very best one, but its okay. The room are large but seem old, not much maintenance i think.

Great place for short stay - mainly if you are transiting close to airport for some other reasons. This is at the walking distance from the Katunayeke airport. The rooms are okay - not excellent. Good Indian restaurant available. The cost is reasonable but the front desk staff was not friendly at least.
