The staff are helpful, friendly & kind...the manager was able to answer most questions, the hotel is a bus ride to the train station & Pettha market which is a easy walk to downtown.
Breakfast wasn't great, The rooms were not cleaned or made up daily.
Our first stop in Sri Lanka. Great and helpful staff. Nice and clean rooms. Answer for every questions. Good breakfast. Great price! Adrien and his crew as a hosts were perfect!
Nice building and common areas.
The rooms are dirty and noisy during the night. The staff tends to be helpful, but they expect rewards regularly which is bothering when you try to relax.
Small and quaint.
I couldn't find restaurants to eat at in the area but it was my first night in Sti Lanka.
The room was nice and spacious. Breakfast was good. Location was quiet tucked away from the main road. Friendly staff
The hotel is a little far from the center. Staff couldn't speak English at all. Found a very dirty glass in the bathroom
A lovely old colonial house, furnished in traditional style.Located in quiet side street. Very light and airy. Clean, comfortable room with good bathroom and hot shower. Helpful staff and good breakfast. Great value for money.
They were useless in every aspect of service no one there to greet me and and no one besides the manager who could speak any English,totally wrong location,no safe deposit box and no hot water, breakfast was awful a and do you want me continue as I could go on all day
Staffs were very professional.friendly and helpful. Very good location. Dont have to worry about noise or anything. Very peaceful.
* We wern't given the room which we booked. I asked for the bath tub room and when we went it wasn't. Asked to change, but couldnt.
Dusty room. TV did not work. Two of the three lamps did not work. Hot water in the tap but not in the shower. Tea and coffee facility in the room incomplete. No management present, only some attendants.
This was a very friendly little boutique hotel. The staff were extremely welcoming and helped us in advance of our arrival with information and an airport pick up. They even prepared a meal for our arrival. Breakfast is fantastic in terms of choice, although they do struggle a bit if there are a number of guests wanting to eat at the same time. The staff are very willing to help with anything you ask of them and give you the feeling that you have friends in a strange city. Taxis and tuk tuks that we requested were always good value and arrived on time.
Although the staff were extremely helpful and friendly we did have to prompt them quite a bit to change sheets and towels etc. It was always done when asked though so not a big deal. Not ideal if you want to be close to the centre. That said, it was only a 20 rupee bus ride or 400 rupee tuk tuk to the Fort and we found a lot of good restaurants and one or two bars in the area.
We loved the decoration, furniture, statues and little courtyard. Sri lankan breakfast was nice too. Kettle and fridge in room. Friendly Staff.
The sheets felt old and didn't look very clean. There was a power socket above the shower with a badly covered wire to the boiler which seemed hazardous. The top floor room was quite noisy because of a pump noise when anyone used the water. The room could have been cleaner and the service more efficient. We were told we'd be given a second bed on the second night but that didn't happen. No bathroom mat and we also had to ask for our towels as none where in the room.
Great location. Well kept. Clean rooms. Excellent water pressure in the showers. Friendly and helpful staff. Good food.
Trouble understanding language sometimes.
The room was great and roomy for the price. The complementary breakfast was huge. The staff helped us organise a reasonably priced taxi to the airport.
Friendly staff, clean and comfy rooms.
The staff of the hotel were very friendly. They treat you like a king. Breakfast is speciale fresh made at the time you want to (the traditional breakfast is worth a try). We had a large room at the top of the building with a also large and very clean bathroom. The look of the hotel is very surprising. More like a visit at someones house than a hotel. It gives you a very welcome and cosey feeling.
When we arrived in the dark we were very surprises about the entry of the hotel. It is in a dark alley. That made we didnt like to go out the first night. De hotel has no bar.
Affordable for an International traveler. And and his Staff are very courteous, they served a delicious (authentic) Sri Lankan breakfast.
The motor which pumps water to the tank makes some noise - hope they fix this problem.
It is a 100 year old hotel. Personalized service was just amazing!!!
I liked everything
We had a fantastic 3-days-stay in the hotel and a superb support service by Arun the manager. The rooms are nice and the furniture is beautiful. The staff gave us a very warm welcome and shelter. We def. recommend this hotel to everyone is looking for an affordable but cosy stay in Colombo.
quiet convinient location great supostive staff nice historic building
Nice service, great room. Really appreciated our stay there!
Located in Colombo 6, so not so central. But for 350 rupees you are at the Fort within 10 min.
Very nice and thematic hotel one hundred years old. Staff is friendly, quality of living is good. Recommended for those who stay in Colombo for 1 or 2 nights.
The staff at Reed were extremely welcoming and helpful with lots of useful tips. They really made our first experience in Sri Lanka one to remember fondly. Also the breakfast was none of the best I have ever had and highly recommend it.
The generator or water pump was quite noisy at night time and kept waking us up.
I liked the very personal attention from the manager of the hotel.He made sure I felt comfortable and was so kind to carry my heavy suitcase upstairs.I also liked his story about the building,incuding explaining me all the art and antique furnitures. It really was so pleasant to meet someone who had a real interest to make the stay as pleasant as possible.It is something that is missing in the bigger hotels...
There was nothing that I did not like.At first I was worried about my heavy suitcase when I noticed the stairs....but without having to ask the problem.was solved within a second..
The Reed was a great find. Stylish and well managed. Arun and his staff were very welcoming and helpful. It is good value for money and as a local resident down south will use it as my new Colombo base and recommend it to my visitors.
It is a bit far from all the places I frequent in Colombo but this is a small inconvenience.
