    Good value for location and basic standart. We stayed just 1 night to catch a plane early morning.

    If you have soft sleep you will be bothered by nearby loud train. Also we were disturbed by men downstairs who were quite loud.

    Good location, everything nearby, comfortable bed, restaurant on ground floor.

    They advertise as accepting card payment but they like cash :-)also there was a mistake with my airport transfer but that actually worked better as I got a cheaper deal with the official taxi office outside the airport.

    Good hotel. Location is good if you plan to use the train. 2 mins from Maradhna station

    the rooms opposite to the road are noisy. Couldn't sleep first night. Had to switch next day.

    Room was very large, good shower. Literally a 2-minute walk to Maradana station. A short tuk-tuk ride to downtown.

    There is a big tree in the courtyard in the middle. The birds are actually very loud early in the morning!

    The location of the hotel was quite close to the bus station. And the rooms are very big. So for the amount of payment you get a nice room.

    It could have been a nice stay for my last Day in Sri Lanka but sadly the hotel staff made it hard for me. There were a few problems with there system but I booked the room just a day before so probably not there fault. What definitely made me feel really uncomfortable was that one of the receptionist didn’t take it seriously with data protection and took my phone number to write me private messages. At first I tried to be nice but after some really inappropriate messages that he likes me and if I’m free in the evening I made clear that this is not okay. He apologized but still I feel very bad about the point that some weird guy have now free access to my private number. Wouldn’t go there again because of safety reasons. Especially for young woman who travel alone. The rest of the staff was really nice but after that I didn’t feel save anymore.
