Considering this is a Taj hotel and it is known to be an excellent Indian hotel chain, this place sadly disappoints. Again one of the hotels in Colombo that brought me back to the '80s. I will just echo that others have said here and say that this place needs a revamp ASAP. Taj will lose their loyal customers if they can't guarantee excellent qualities in their hotels. Other hotels in the area offer much more for half the price. The staff can only do so much to please the guests so if the infrastructure is weak then everything else falls apart.

If you do happen to stay here I suggest you get the ocean view as nothing much happens at the back except an empty tennis court and a general disappointing overview of Colombo.

It delivers far less than it promises May 15, 2011
It delivers far less than it promises. The building looks very impressive from outside but rooms are rundown and badly needs renovation. No of restaurants are limited and the quality of the food leaves lot to be desired .

not upto the standard of expectations. Jun 15, 2011
unfortunately i had very unpleasant stay with this hotel.

i think may be the rooms are not occupied often so the dust, smell etc really made an itch in total.

the service etc was not upto the mark of TAJ.

But when i complained they responded me back which is really appreciable with a confirmation that it is taken into full power to annalise the facts and to correct it. I appreciate that.

Hope the TAJ will not spoil the name and reputation by this hotel.
