Prós: Great hotel, exceeded my expectationd in every way. Would defintely stay here again.
Prós: The hotel's design and amenities are what you'd expect from a boutique chain, and the majority of the staff are welcoming, attentive, and respectful. The rooms are excellent; clean, well-appointed, and tech enabled. The food options in the hotel are a good value, and the gym, pool, and rooftop bar provide ample opportunity to unwind.
Contras: Though I didn't experience it personally, several members of my party (along with many, many, many guests) had their room keycards malfunction throughout the stay. These keycards control access to your floor as well as your room, and are required to enable power in your room for lights, outlets, etc. The hotel itself is very, very small, so if you go to the restaurant, or the lobby, or the rooftop bar, or the pool, or the gym, at the wrong time, you'll be waiting or will be out of luck. The elevators say they hold 11 people max, but barely fit five people comfortably. All these quibbles are minor when considering the price you pay for the clean, excellent rooms and service.
Prós: This chic hotel just five minutes from the Liberty mall and National Museum is a great place to stay in Colombo. It reminds me of the boutique hotels in San Francisco, with quirky design and elegance. Most of the staff were very helpful and pleasant. The breakfast buffet is a good deal and includes both western and traditional dishes. The rooftop bar is a great place to relax, as is the infinity pool. It's a great value for the money, compared to other hotels in the capitol.
Contras: Since most staff were helpful and friendly, those who weren't stood out quite a bit. The hotel lobby is oddly split, with check in on the 7th floor. For all its charm, the hotel is VERY small and so the restaurant, bar, and pool can fill up very quickly.
Prós: Ótimo hotel, excedeu as minhas expectativas em todos os sentidos. Gostaria definitivamente estadia aqui novamente.
Prós: This was a perfect hotel in a great location. We traveled all over Sri Lanka and found this hotel to meet or exceed every expectation. The room was perfect, the pool area was pure luxury and the restaurant choices were excellent. I would stay there again.
Contras: The only "quirk" was that the elevators were not air conditioned. But they were fast, so we didn't have to be in them very long!
Prós: Good breakfast. Friendly staff. Great lobby and restaurants Room clean but needs to be refurbished.
Contras: Parking not available in most occasions. Rooms definitely need to be refurbished. Hallway outside the room has a unpleasant smell. Bathroom exhaust fan does not work right. Mirror gets fogged after shower. No power outlet in bathroom. Bad lighting in room.
Prós: Bom café da manhã. Funcionários simpáticos. Grande lobby e restaurantes quarto limpo, mas precisa de ser remodelado.
Contras: O estacionamento não está disponível na maior parte das ocasiões. Quartos definitivamente precisa de ser remodelado. Corredor do lado de fora o quarto tem um cheiro desagradável. Exaustor banheiro não funcionam direito. Espelho fica embaçado após o banho. Sem tomada de alimentação no banheiro. Má iluminação no quarto.
Prós: Grounds, public spaces & meeting rooms are lovely-5*. Large breakfast buffet with juice bar. Six bottles of water in my room in arrival (thoughtful) but they weren't replenished. Many wedding parties use lobby & grounds for photos-beautiful to see.
Contras: My room was in the older (not refurbished) wing and it showed. Water would not turn off completely in shower, closet doors were hard to slide & did not close completely. Safe was locked open & no one showed up to fix it after I called (but it was done by 3rd day). The room next to mine was under construction or being used by staff & there was a lot of banging one night after midnight. Also, several conference attendees had stomach issues from food they ate there.
