Good Location in Colombo 2

The staff were very helpful when approached for advice and directions. Breakfast was good. Traffic noise was evident most of the time. Busy street outside. TV worked well. Had trouble with internet access. Could not connect to the secure portal. Staff tried to help but to no avail. Used the unsecured portal but in a limited manner.

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities

The property was almost empty so when we arrived they refused to give early check-in @ 7am but wanted charge if wanted so asked to come back at 11am. When we went at 11, there was no room but the guy at the reception found another room. When we went to the room, surprise!!! The bathrooms were almost see through. When complained and mentioned that we will checkout, room was changed to a lower category.

4/5 Good

    Good hotel, apparently the oldest in Colombo, within short tuk-tuk distance from Colombo train station. Check-in was quick and easy. Room was spacious,with large balcony overlooking the road, and one of the most comfortable beds we've ever slept in. Nice restaurant with sufficient choice for breakfast and choice of a la carte or bar bites in the evening. The bar bites were particularly good with good sized portions. Decent bar room available too. All staff in the hotel were very pleasant and helpful. Within easy walking distance from Galle Face, Twin Towers, Clock Tower and Pettah. Clean hotel. Though we only stayed 2 nights we'd definitely recommend this hotel for either short or longer stay.

    Stayed 2 nights in Nov 2018



    Overall the Nippon did not meet our expectations. All standards could be improved. Paid for transfer from the airport and was then charged extra for tolls, paid online for room but at hotel was charged extra for taxes. Breakfast was slow, cold and a strange combination of food. Overall you could get better value for money elsewhere.

    Pros: The location was good.

    Cons: Breakfast, customer service standards.
