        An Enchanting Stay with a Marvelous Sea View at a Welcoming Hotel”

        I recently stayed at this wonderful hotel and was amazed by the breathtaking sea view. The room was spacious, and clean, and had all the necessary amenities for a comfortable stay. While there was no balcony, the view from the room was still amazing. The facilities at the hotel were great, and the staff were friendly, welcoming, and always ready to help. They truly made me feel at home during my stay. The breakfast buffet offered a good selection of items, but as a vegetarian, I would have appreciated more vegetarian options. Despite this, the food was delicious, and the dining area was clean and well-maintained. Overall, I highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a great stay with a beautiful sea view, nice facilities, and excellent staff. While the breakfast buffet could benefit from more vegetarian options, the overall experience was fantastic.

        Wonderful Stay with gorgeous view ”

        I was with my friend for the first time at The Ocean Colombo, Check in till check out everything was perfect. My room was 705 and the view of the sea and the rail track close by. We were welcomed by Upendra in the front desk and his costumer care was excellent. Mr Jamal Deen he helped us to open the mini bar and filled our needful drinks, his smile and the innocent attitude was heart melting. Room was super clean and the washroom as well. Room set up and environment was absolutely great. We used to go to the rooftop for smoke and for some drinks coz we requested for a non smoking room. At rooftop the guys were so friendly and kind. The day when we checking out we were so sad to leave the room coz it’s a wonderful place. Early morning the sound of the sea waves and the train passing by was really great. I really enjoyed it. Nothing made me uncomfortable. Special thanks to Tuwan, he questioned us how was your stay! There where he touch our hearts. He’s so kind and assist us in a very welcoming way. Everything was excellent. We will surely back to The Ocean Hotel...
