the hotel is very close to Colombo airport and is not directly over the flight path so you can enjoy a noise free environment it is a good hotel to stay after your arrival or before you depart out of the country.

Thanks to the Taj team for a...

The location is 10 mins drive from the airport. The room is clean but old in the old wing. There is dampness visible all over and has a strong stench in the lobby & gallery. Food is ok for Dinner. Free WIFI is there but speed is not great. Staff is courteous and is helpful.

We arrived late and left early and found the room to be fine for that purpose. We did, however, really enjoy the breakfast. A great variety of foods, especially Sri Lankan specialties and Rasad, our waiter, was so helpful at explaining all of the food and assisting us. Thank you Rasad!
