Flight into Sri Lanka arrived late night and planned to drive to Kandy the next morning, so stayed overnight at the GOH. This is one of the oldest hotels in Sri Lanka (Chekhov even stayed here) and is located in a historic part of Colombo, so it is a good place to see a few of Colombo's sights if you don't plan to stay in the city long.
The room was clean and nicely decorated, though the corridor outside was a little dingy and the bed on the hard side.
The food at breakfast was okay, though the view of the harbour from the breakfast room was very nice.
