  • colombo's best stay

    by

    the service was impecable to the last detail.A hotel that makes a home for you in a foreign place and never leaves you. The famous hilton hospitality at its best. A hotel worth every penny you pay for and one thats worth visiting. And the local staff is full of good cheer through and through.With one of the best amenities available the gym was one of the best. And the restaurants were worth every morsel on the plate. The breakfast befitted a kings . Definitely one of the best in colombo.

    Unique Quality: a great view a great everything

    Directions: Galle road, after the Galadhari

  • not my first choice hotel in the current situation

    by

    This is an upscale, great service, attractive hotel. For me personally, it's not the place in Colombo I would feel most comfortable at the moment. Once in the hotel you don't have any sense of the country's current security situation ... but the area the hotel is in, Fort, is the part of the city with the tightest security presence. For me, the glitz wasn't worth that.
    There are more checkpoints and more nervousness among the soldiers in this area, because it is a central army location and used to be a target during the incidents in the early 80s. Soldiers and guns are evident in many parts of town, but they really are in this area. Some people get used to this and so they will recommend the Hilton.

    I think there are other really nice Colombo hotels in areas with less intense security presence.

    Unique Quality: Impressive, tho not cheap, fitness facilities.

    5 Star hotel

    by

    I came to Colombo once in December 2001 when I visited Maldives at that time. It was a good stay in Hilton, or any Hilton worldwide. You need to walk across the road in order to have the swimming pool and gym facilities as they are not in the Hotel Compound. At night the Garden will serve a very good Sri Lankan dinner buffet.

    It is a western hotel, which you may find to be a bit odd when you are in Sri Lanka. Other hotels like Taj chain have very good style of Sri Lankan and Indian atmosphere. I prefer the latter.

    Designed for the busy traveller

    by

    The hotel provides a full range of services for the busy traveller. You can get your clothes washed and pressed in less than 3 hours. You pay for the service, but who else even offers the service. If you can pay the entry price (the room rate), everything else is reasonably priced. The staff are great and really work hard to make things good for the guest.

    Unique Quality: It has a squash court and the staff make excellent playing partners if you do not have a partner. The staff at the sports facility are very friendly and helpfull without being intrusive. If you don't feel so active, you can chill out by the pool.

    Directions: Near the twin towers of the World Trade Centre

    Just business.

    The Hilton in Colombo is good if you are in town for business. And that’s it. As to be expected from this mid budget chain, once inside your room, you could very easily think you are in a one horse town in Idaho. Such little imagination goes into these lodgings, it boggles the mind. But, if it’s the fax machine you are looking for, then the Hilton does not disappoint.

    The Colombo Hilton

    by

    The Hilton brand is much the same all over the world. On the plus side you know you're guaranteed excellent service, luxurious rooms and a completely hassle-free stay. On the downside there's little evidence of the local culture inside those air-conditioned pristine white walls. It leaves a nasty dent in your wallet too.

    The Colombo Hilton has everything you'd expect and is an excellent place to stay. It overlooks Beira Lake in the heart of the city, is within walking distance of the Indian Ocean and Galle Face Green, and can offer sauna, limousines, gymnasium, tennis courts... anything you want really.

    Unique Quality: Best of all are the superb restaurants - you can take a tour of unbeatable food from around the world without leaving the hotel: Ginza (Japanese), Il Ponte (Italian - also does takeaways), Emperor's Wok (Chinese), The Curry Leaf (excellent local Sri Lankan cuisine), and best of all, Spoons serving a delicious mix of everything!

    Entertainment-wise there's the Blue Elephant nightclub and the English colonial style Echelon pub. There's also middle-of-the-road music at night in the lobby.

    Directions: You'll notice the street name is a bit of a mouthful so just say the Hilton to a taxi driver and you'll be fine. By foot, head north up Galle Road towards Fort and the clocktower - you'll soon see the towering World Trade Centre next door.

Colombo Hilton for business

by TripAdvisor Member rippermail

I have stayed at the Colombo Hilton while on business 4 times in the last 2 months, and each time have found the service to be very good. The rooms are a bit dated, however the beds are very comfortable, and those on the ocean side of the hotel offer lovely views.

I've eaten in a number of the restaurants within the hotel, and found the Japanese restaurant to be particularly good - excellent sushi.

Staff have always been very friendly and attentive, and are more than happy to assist with any query you may have. All staff refer to me by name each time I have visited, which is a nice personal touch for such a big hotel.

I am looking forward to my next visit!

You can find a list of Colombo taxi companies here: http://www.srilankatourism.org.uk/lang/en/traveller/taxis.php

I'm pretty sure the prices are not up-to-date.

Re: Cab needed (Hilton Colombo - Kandy - Hilton Colombo)

by ViajesdelMundo

?Surely the desk at the Colombo HIlton could provide you all the info you need?

Re: Cab needed (Hilton Colombo - Kandy - Hilton Colombo)

by HansDK

Surely, but at a price.

Re: Cab needed (Hilton Colombo - Kandy - Hilton Colombo)

by ViajesdelMundo

But if they wouldn't actually give some taxi phone numbers to the Poster, then surely let her use the phone book?? One thing to be cautious of though, is made sure what you are booking is either air-conditioned or not, depending upon what you want, as that can make the difference of 200-400~ Rupees. I once got taken with the lower price for an UNair-conditioned vehicle in the high afternoon---NOT a pretty ride.
