Had a good time with family at the GOH Harbour View Restaurant for dinner. Enjoyed a good selection of Western and Eastern food with beverages in our choice. Staff was also good and friendly. Harbour View of night gives an extra courage to go again.

Huge rooms , overlooks the port so not so pretty but interesting. Good central location in colombo hospitality service left a bit to be desired but an ok place. Decor reflects the glory of a previous era though a little jaded!

It's hard to describe just how bad this place is. Yes, it was once a grand hotel, but it's now a hotel left in neglect. First, most rooms are adjoining, meaning you'll be hearing your neighbor next door through the night. The beds are uncomfortable...More

About
Description
An iconic building at the heart of Colombo, located overlooking the busy harbor; gifted with history, it is where comfort blends with affordability for the most discerning traveler. This fine piece of More architecture speaks of the country's colonial times and with a spectacular view of Colombo Harbour. The splendidly decorated 80 rooms are fully air-conditioned while Anton Chekhov and Joze Rizal, are the luxury suites overlooking the Colombo harbor, offering a fantastic view for their guests. It is more than just a hotel. It is home away from home. Less
