    Central location. Good lobby and overall building, however, the rooms could do with a little more furnishing and better cleaning. WiFi was okay in the rooms. Staff were friendly and accommodating. They agreed to hold one piece of our luggage while my sister and I went around Sri Lanka with the other piece. (We didn’t want to carry two suitcases around the island.) So that was a big help.

    This hotel is the oldest hotel in Colombo and located in the Fort, in a very convenient place. Their breakfast was buffet style with variety of choices and wifi connection was stable. They have two restaurants, one Sri Lankan food and western food. The Sri Lankan food restaurant was quite reasonable and tasty.

    I sent several messages before my trip asking about the transportation from the airport but never heard back from them. Also, the room had ants on the floor....

    The hotel has a strange atmosphere and is very run down.
