    A traditional style hotel next to Maradana railway

    A traditional style hotel next to Maradana railway station. The rooms are quite big, and spacious. The AC worked fine, although the WiFi struggled occasionally. The staff seemed very friendly and helpful,and assisted as required. There is a restaurant on the ground floor open until 22.00, serving a mix of Indian and Chinese dishes, there is also a bar area. I will stay here again, as it suits my needs, although the local area is not central for many people.

    A great place to rest your head

    This hotel was a 5 minutes walk from the train station. The hotel bedroom is very big and spacious with a huge comfortable bed and very clean. The staff were fabulous and would help with their knowledge and always with a big smile. The food in the restaurant was fabulous and plenty of it and they would even get you a beer from down the road. Would definitely recommend this place.

    Traditional hotel near Maradana railway station

    Good value traditional hotel near Maradana railway station. The rooms are very good sized and clean. The bathrooms have individual hot water boilers so always available should you wish. AC in the room was ok and the wifi worked although the signal wasn't the best at times. Friendly and helpful staff who remembered me from previous visits. Laundry took just over a day, but was well done and cheap. They also arranged a car to the airport at a competitive rate. The restaurant was open until 22.00 which is handy as the choices around the area are limited. Beware that rooms at the front will be subject to the associated noise you find here.

    Good value budget hotel

    A very good budget hotel in Colombo. The service was very good.The local area is nothing special with lots of shops selling car parts. My bathroom was clean, but the bathroom tap only emitted a trickle. For what I paid (30 pounds per night) it represented good value
