3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2010

We stayed in a "Superior Room With Balcony" over New Year's Eve. I was not impressed with anything about this hotel. It wasn't dirty but not very clean, the staff was not very friendly, it was a pretty far walk from the beach, and the breakfast was mediocre. If you are looking for a pool, this is not the place. It is about the size of a hot tub. As for the room, there was no shower curtain and the water from the shower went everywhere. They only gave us one key, which made things difficult when only one of us returned to the room. The "balcony" was hardly that. It was about 1 foot wide (no room for a chair or anything) with a huge AC unit on it. When we arrived, we decided we would try to look for another hotel, but after looking at some other available rooms, we decided to stay at the Arimana. Although not perfect, the price was pretty good relatively. One plus is it is only a couple blocks from the big shopping mall.

No ground floor rooms available, however, there is a lift to access all floors.
Good location, near banzyan markets & jung ceylon.
Friendly staff, clean rooms.

1. Reception often unattended during day/ early evening. I went behind the counter on several ocassions and got my own key .... a worry isn't it .
2. No facility to change money at hotel/reception.
3. No internet access available in lobby at hotel.
4. No LUNCH / DINNER meals available, even though web site states otherwise.
Breakfast is cooked downstairs where motorbikes are parked ?
5. NO ROOM SERVICE for food or drinks.

Neat compact hotel but lacks facilities big time, would not recommend even for basic needs

Stayed at Arimana hotel for 8 nights, the room is ok. the pictures shown on the web is very misguiding. the pool area is practily nonexiting, the 4 chairs were broken, The staff working at the reception, where really unfriendly! When breakfast is served, the are dozens of beez flying around, landing on the jam, and spoiling our very simple breakfast. There are plenty of small hotels nearby, stay there instead!
