Nice hotel near centre of Colombo. Too noisy at night time on top or alley facing rooms due to rooftop bar and bands in Hospital Alley

Nice hotel. Terrible experience

Pros: The location and live music along the street at night time
Cons: Staff competency
I booked this thinking it would be a nice place to start our journey while taking my partner on our first trip to Sri Lanka. We organised the hotel shuttle which turned out to be a sub-contracting driver, which was no big deal. What was a big deal was paying for it. I was asked by the hotel staff on 3 seperate occasions to provide my credit card for the shuttle payment - over 3 different days! It wasn't that my card had been declined or that the details were wrong, they just hadn't cared to process the transaction the first two times which was very tedious. Then upon checking out, we were accused of stealing a towel from the room. We were in a hurry to catch our pre-booked train to Anuradhapura so demanded the manager accompany us back to the room so that we could prove all towels were still there. Eventually he agreed but not soon enough to catch our train in time. The discussion took place in front of other guests which was embarrassing. It turns out we were supposed to have been issued a hand towel - which we thought was odd not having one but it was our first time in Sri Lanka so knew no better. Overall the hotel is nice and in a good part of the city. If you can't find somewhere with better reviews, then insist on finding your own way to Fairway Colombo and count your towels on arrival! Fortunately the hospitality throughout the rest of our trip was much more competent.
