Colombo - Hotel Nippon”

This is a review from frequent travellers from Switzerland: After arriving in Sri Lanka we spent our first 2 nights in Colombo (Hotel Nippon) to do some sightseeing in the capital city of this country. Referring to other reviews: rooms are clean an comfortable, AC in our room was working well, on one side of the building there is a noisy street (especially during daytime), for us this was OK, we imagine that some travellers would rate this in a negative way, but be aware that you are in a city of an asian developping country.. noise is normal in our eyes, otherwise you better stay at home, the staff was friendly at any time and ready to help, we can definitely recommend to stay at Hotel Nippon during your City Trip in Sri Lanka.

Great One-Nighter with Good Restaurant”

Hotel Nippon was a nice experience very close to Fort Train Station, in what seems to be an old converted commercial colonial building. It’s a nice place, but try to avoid the street-side rooms as they’re quite noisy. On a good note, the check-in was excellent and fast, and they offer an airport pickup. However, the pickup at $30 is quite expensive for the distance, but may be worth it after a long flight. Some hotels in the same area, however, charge even more as they all uniformly exaggerate the “long journey” from the airport. I was there only one night, but I can definitely recommend the whole grilled fish in their restaurant. It was an original preparation that really worked. Kudos to the chef! The breakfast was just so-so however, with nothing noteworthy to remark on, except that the coffee is very good. There’s also a bakeshop downstairs near the restaurant, and there’s a bar which I didn’t frequent. The room itself was great with a nice bed and bathroom with a good AC.

Excellent”

The staff made us feel safe before we even got to Colombo. They emailed us updates on the situation, let us know they could pick us up from the airport, kept an eye on our delayed flight times. We arrived at 3am to a lovely man who greeted us with the biggest smile which made us feel warm and welcome even at such an early time. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. Thank you for having us!
