Great Hotel
This is a lovely hotel with great restaurants and very friendly staff. I was a little disappointed that there was not more Sri Lankan Cuisine on offer, the hotels restaurants are very cosmopolitan. I was also disappointed that the Wi-Fi was not secure in anyway, so I was reluctant to use it. I would still recommend staying here though

Too bad about the stairs !
I have a long running complaint against the fact that many hotels do not have guest friendly stairs to the floors. I do not like lifts to the extent that I never use them, I & my wife have no difficulty in climbing 8/10 floors of stairs to get to my room. When I checked in to the Kingsbury & asked where the stairs were, the hotel immediately moved me to the 2nd floor so I had to climb less but the only stairs available were the staff stairs which were dirty, smelly & frankly a disgrace. As if this were not bad enough, every time we used the staff stairs we had explain to staff that we hadn't got lost & knew perfectly well where we were going !! They kept trying to send us to the lifts!! I know it is probably not practical to build new stairs in an existing hotel but on an ongoing basis I for one will be researching the stairs situation of a hotel & if not satisfactory will book an alternative

Better hotels in Colombo
We stayed in an executive room which surprisingly was the same as the deluxe rooms (apart from access to the exec. lounge)! You could constantly hear loud music in the room, either late at night or in the morning! The service was generally mediocre and not at where it should be for a hotel claiming to be 5*. The fixtures and fittings in the rooms were in need of care / replacement. On a better note, the food in the restaurants is good. Overall, would definitely not stay here again given the abundance of other much better hotels in Colombo.
