We stayed for two nights at Ocean Colombo. Location was ok but I don't think it was value for money. Our room had a nice ocean view and our son enjoyed watching the train. The hotel offers a buffet breakfast from 7 am but it is not really ready until 8am.

Stayed: March 2018, travelled with family

We were very impressed with room and customer service from checkin team /front office manager. We checked in at rush hour.. a coach load was also coming in. Nevertheless the manager got us into our fabulous room, so we could rush to an urgent bar /club ... room service was swift and good value. I'll definitely stay again

It was a great stay with the ocean Colombo. The hotel located not far from the city center . Room was clean and the view from the room was beyond expectations, it was so beautiful . The door man at the lobby was so friendly and kind, the manager at the restaurant (breakfast) he was so friendly. Recommend hotel when you are planning to stay in Colombo and the view from the room it’s just an amazing .

I was at Ocean Colombo this March. It was a simple yet elegant hotel with a guaranteed beautiful beach view through a large glass wall. Room was simple and comfortable. Staff were very friendly and fast on any request, especially Shehan Marlon Steven was very helpful to me with getting the room fast and making my stay even more comfortable and memorable. One of the places I’d highly recommending Colombo to just stay indoor and relax.
