Amaong helpful staff. Great breakfast. Clean bright room. Perfect for what we needed

Well located hotel in downtown Colombo. We had an issue with the air co that we could not adjust. The thermostat was located near the ceiling and could barley be reached to turn the system off. The desk staff offered to send an engineer up but at 3AM we were not dressed to receive hotel staff. The room was trendy and cute. The restaurant offered a buffet breakfast at about 15 per person. All view were well planned with lots of vistas seen through window walls, quite lovely.

Very nice , wonderful!! Great hotel , beautiful pool, perfect rooms

The best is the roof top deck. Loved the pool. Did not see the gym but herd it was nice. I got a package under $89/nt on orbitz so price was excellent. Even at $110 which other friends had previously received, I would pay. Modern and sleek with great service.

I spent two weeks on the 18th floor of the Cinnamon Red Columbo. The hotel is in downtown Columbo from my tall floor to ceiling windows I could see the Indian Ocean and the waves come to shore. Housekeeping staff Hiran and Manoj keep my room clean as well as accommodate my preference for cleaning times.

The room is very comfortable and modern. We got a room on the higher floor with great view. We really enjoy our stay at this hotel. It is very convenient to go places in the city by walking or taking a tuk tuk at a reasonable price.

We booked CR because of its central location and positive reviews from travellers including veg travellers who raved about the breakfast. Overall, I did not find the cost worth the experience and makes me wonder if Lean Luxury just means cheap. The breakfast was indeed large and luxurious but food was not fresh, fruit was under ripe, and some things not cooked through. The room was nothing special and the bar/restaurant were not open during afternoon hours. It would have been fine except I expect more when I pay for $80 a night.

centrally located, but confused about lean luxury

We booked CR because of its central location and positive reviews from travellers including veg travellers who raved about the breakfast. Overall, I did not find the cost worth the experience and makes me wonder if Lean Luxury just means cheap. The breakfast was indeed large and luxurious but food was not fresh, fruit was under ripe, and some things not cooked through.
