This hotel is in an office building on Galle Road, a few hundred meters from the sea. The rooms are nice, aircon and ceiling fans are strong, hot shower, good breakfast. Plenty of restaurants in walking distance. Easy to get Uber or auto rickshaw out front. Will definitely stay again. Thanks to Imran and the staff for a great stay.
