I stayed at the Grand Oriental Hotel for two separate nights on my way in and my way out of Sri Lanka. There is certainly enough evidence that the hotel might once have been one of the 'grandest of the Orient' but those days were a long time ago. The rooms are comfortable, though somewhat cramped. The staff are generally courteous and efficient particularly in the top floor restaurant. And, there are sufficient quaint little reminders of bygone eras that are both appreciated - service of a ref... Read more

The staff and service were good, not amazing. The hotel is about a 5-10 minute walk from the old Dutch Hospital, which is a trendy little area with shops, restaurants, and live music. The hotel itself was nice and clean. It is certainly one of the older hotels in the city, so you shouldn't expect a modern design. However, it's in a great location.

Grand Oriental offers a very good quality of stay with the colonial historical accent we are looking for. Comfortable and clean, a bit worn only as expected. Good service, good traditional buffet dinner and breakfast in pleasant,well set dining room. Location is central, with view of the working port. We will return.

The Grand Oriental Hotel... the staff and food are fantastic. Room was a bit grubby & very tired (wear your flip flops as the floor is dirty) immediately offered an upgrade on arrival as our room wasn't ready and we were tired after being delayed for three hours at Heathrow.. construction going on at Colombo airport which caused the delay. Ate in both restaurants in the hotel & both meals were superb. All staff and locals encountered were so friendly and helpful, even the policemen at the fron... Read more

This is a three star property...An old heritage hotel ( opened in 1875 ) in Colombo. I have stayed here earlier....The property has not lost its charm...But the service has lost it...From the time we entered there was no one to usher in....The customer service is lacking at this hotel...From the front office to the restaurant people were very cold...I did not get the same warmth i received 14 years back when i stayed here...The rooms are still charming...You would feel like you are in the coloni...

This is a quirky hotel, close to the docks and station, ideal for an early morning train. The room we had was large and clean with an internal view. We did not have breakfast here, however they did provide a simple picnic breakfast

The Grand Oriental Hotel in Colombo Fort is another iconic part of Colombo from a bygone era. This review relates to the Hotel's Harbour Bar which has excellent views across Colombo Port and surrounds. Having walked a fair bit all morning I happened upon this Old Hotel and realised they have a good venue up on the 4th Floor which is also their Highest Fkoor. A chill bottle of Lion Lager and some good photo opportunities.....

We stayed at this hotel for just the 1 night getting up at 1am to catch a flight at a time when the airport runway was being renovated so had to be there 5 hrs before!!!! ( no idea why). The hotel is from another era, it is situated overlooking the port in a very tatty run down area. The rooms had frosted windows so you could not see out however you could open them all the way which could be a problem especially if on the 4th floor like us and traveling maybe with children. The room had a 4... Read more

The hotel catered for our interconnecting room requirements with no further prompting. Very centrally located... and not as spooky as many previous reviewers described. The whole hotel could do with freshening up and modernisation. For example, the grand lobby is virtually deserted and could with a little thought be converted into a great coffee lounge. However, this is reflected in the room rate which is currently very reasonable given the location. Staff are friendly... albeit potentially t... Read more

Amazing history in the hotel with Anton Chekhov and Dr Jose Rizal staying here over 100 years ago. Second pic is from the restaurant breakfast room on the fourth floor. It's just a short walk from Colombo Fort Railway station, Pettah and the Dutch Hospital restaurant and bar area. Showing its age but still great value. If it was ever renovated prices would double or triple.
