Hotel Review: Hilton Colombo

Fantastic hotel located a few minutes walk from Colombo Fort railway station.

Check in is warm. and friendly with Samual, a Trainee Front Office staff member. He informs me that my room. has been upgraded to a King Executive Suite. Sweet.

The room is essentially an oversized studio with 2 bathrooms, living area, and Kind sized-bed. A stunning view awaits.

There are some lovely welcome amenities including a bottle of red wine, large fruit basket, and a box of delicious Hilton chocolates.

The Executive Lounge on the second floor, I am told by the Manager, has a different theme each night. Tonight is Chinese. Had I been a day later it would have been Sri Lankan.

The gym and pool are located over a bridgeway across from the hotel. I don’t use the pool but the gym is excellent. I also treat myself to a sports oil massage costing only around SGD 30.

I have breakfast the next day at the main restaurant on the lobby floor. The view outside is of a pond filled with Black and white swans, and carp. Beautiful.

Service is exemplary throughout the hotel. The facilities are excellent. It is really an excellent place to stay for a stopover when visiting Colombo.
