Very Average
Very average, but I guess you get what you pay for. Beds not comfortable, air con is good, very loud location from outside activity, staff conned is on cab to airport to call a cab. Rather than just order a cab insisted we pay the hotel 4500 rupee. Going rate is about 2700. Cab driver asked us what we paid the hotel then got ticked off that he was only getting 2700 of the 4500. Tried to take us on the old non toll slow road rather than the new highway. I said no way dude I paid a premium onto the highway you go! Hotel staff ripp you off

ホテルはコロンボの中心街であるフォートやペターまで徒歩20分位、ゴールフェイスグリーンまでも徒歩20分位で申し分がありません。周りをヒルトンホテルやキングスバリーホテルといった一流ホテルに囲まれとても静かなところです。少々古いですが、掃除が行き届いており清潔です。シャワーもお湯が出ます。朝食はバイキングで欧米料理やスリランカ 料理もあり、充実しています。

ホテルの責とは言えないが、隣がナイトクラブなのだろうか、重低音のビートが深夜一時半過ぎまで室内に響きわたり、常識では考えられないほどの騒々しさ。いつもこのように騒がしいのかは不明。私が宿泊したのが年末で金曜の夜だったからかもしれない。どこでも眠れる自信のある人以外は、多分、とても寝付けないに違いない。 部屋にミニバーとフリーウォーターあり。 Wifiは案内してくれたが、インターネットに繋がらず使えなかった。 シャワーの水圧は低いが、この国では普通だろう。お湯がちゃんと出るだけよいと言える。 朝食は六時半からスタートし、十時ごろまで。西洋料理中心のビュッフェで、品数はホットミールが10品くらいでそれなりにあるほう。
