Continental Hotel (Colombo Sri Lanka) – Hotel Reviews – Hotel Reviews

“After 14 years of marriage this was our first real honeymoon! And we left it to the tour operator to decide where we were going to stay. We had 5 days and 4 nights in Sri Lanka and it was planned in such a way that we would spend only Night 1 and Night 4 in Colombo. Its a good… “

“We were first booked in another hotel. At our request this was changed to the Ceylon Continental. This is a 5 star hotel mainly catering to business travellers. Being holiday travellers we did not enjoy it as much. Security was too tight. Staff very intrusive. Even basic facility like a tea pot or an electric kettle was not provided. Dirnking… “

“Stayed for 11 nights at this hotel. My office is a stone’s throw from the hotel (oh don’t throw anything…. there are armed guards everywhere). I got a room facing the city ie facing the guards. Didnt want the ocean view because the sound of waves crashing made me a bit edgy especially after the tsunami. Besides the rooms get… “

“I have stayed at this hotel every year for the last 3 years. It’s okay but has been steadily going downhill. The hotel is classed as five star but I would class it at about 3 stars.

They served cereals fruit sausages bacon eggs and curry! Tea & coffeee was… “

“We contacted the hotel directly and got a fantastic last minute price so couldn’t really complain! The communal areas (the lobbby reception bar pool restaurants) are all great and 5* standard. The rooms are OK – but do smell pretty damp. We have actually stayed here on 2 occassions now – and the second time we got a smoking room… “

“We recently stayed in this hotel. It has a good location and nice sea views but it is starting to fade. If you wanted a real 5 star hotel then I suggest the Hilton. This was fine for cleanliness food service etc be prepared for taxi drivers who constantly want you to go on tour but I think that there… “

“It was certainly value for money in this case. The 70’s decor and stale smell in the lifts & hallways were not pleasant. The cost of private cars must have gone up considerably since the last set of reviews were made because though many reviews within the last year state that a day will cost $25 its actually $40 -… “

“I had read that this superbly situated hotel (between the Indian Ocean and the historic Fort and Pettah areas)was renowned for its service and indeed it could not be faulted on this criterion. However it is a hotel that needs attention if it is to retain its reputation. The main problem is the size and quality of its single rooms…. “
