    This is my second stay at Moss Colombo, and again it was perfect. We arrived at 1am and welcomed and looked after with beautiful rooms, cold drinking water and early breakfast as we were leaving for Trinco at 7.45 am. It’s very central and away from traffic noise. We stay for another 2 nights on our way home.

    Moss Colombo

    Moss Colombo - Clean & comfortable. Friendly staff. Nice to be outside of central Colombo, but only a fifteen minute tuk tuk to the fort. Some noise from building work next door, but not too bad. Thank You.

    An aesthetically pleasing hotel - with friendly staff but it’s let down on the details and the feeling that the owners are squeezing out the profit - breakfast is crazily overpriced and no reception staff first thing a.m. or pm - at times you might just need them (come on we’re paying decent room rates - create employment opps for great hospitality staff in Colombo!) Plus the beautifully designed hotel is looking tired - it’s a tropical island after all so wear and tear inevitable - nothing a regular repaint and a bit of fixing can’t amend. There is also building works going on in the adjacent building - this isn’t mentioned so be prepared for some noise in some rooms. Staff friendly, warm and helpful and dealt with my complaint kindly - moving me to another room without a fuss.

    PERFECTION!! We have zero cons, only positives! Great central location in the city and easy to Uber to our destinations close by. Loved the building and rooms which were super trendy, clean, minimal and aesthetically pleasing. Find cute little quotes hidden throughout. Beautiful interior design. Surprisingly quiet despite just off a very busy main road. Private feeling, we were able to go about our day with no hassle or disturbances. Security on premises 24/7. Lovely staff. Breakfast options at an added cost which we unfortunately didn't get a chance to try but the smoothie bowls sounded delish! Loved our room ... it was simple but well thought out with everything we needed. Spacious bathroom and the best rain shower we experienced in Sri Lanka over all our other hotel stays (which included some pretty fancy places). Aircon was left on for our arrival which was a thoughtful detail. Definitely would stay here again on our next trip and have already recommended to all our friends and family. Thanx MOSS team :)
