Great location great staff Great food. I stayed here last year too Quality is consistent. I will definitely comeback next year. I strongly recommend this hilton for any one need to stay around Slave Island for business or pleasure.

Since it is a residence, the rooms are in apartment style. You can book one apartment with either 2 rooms or 3 rooms. This kind of setup is best for family and group of friends who would stay for days in Colombo. The kitchen is well equipped and the apartment by itself is luxury.

The location is good as it is pretty central in Colombo with walking and Uber options around for food. The staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel decor in the rooms feels like something from the 90s but still comfortable. We we're upgraded to a suite, which was like staying in a condo as opposed to a hotel. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Type: King Bed Superior Room The room is newly decorated in a simple with a blend of modern and classic style. It is quite sizeable with working area separated by the pillar and a sofa area and walk in closet. The design fits the room shape well. The bathroom has separate toilet, shower, and bath area with very large double sink and shelves to place personal care products. The only small issue would be noise insulation, as you can hear the outside and hallway area quite clearly. I had a room on the top floors therefore street noise was not an issue but it could become an issue for light sleeper on lower floors. The hotel is located right next to a supermarket and there were several restaurants including fast food chain like KFC and Pizza Hut within walking distance.

The check in and check out were very efficient. Location is very central. The staff here are excellent and very helpful. The room service quality was poor. The buffet breakfast had a large spread and was good. The rooms are clean but nothing fancy. Wifi was poor as the router is in the dining area, so bedrooms have slow speeds. Large beautiful swimming pool. Good gym.

Wonderful stay. Although the rooms aren’t fancy but they are very comfortable and clean. The staff is excellent and the service is great. We loved the food and found the stay pleasant and economical. Highly recommend it!

We stayed at the Hilton Residence Colombo in January 2018 and had a wonderful time there. We stayed in a 3 bedroom (2 bathroom) apartment which was very spacious, clean and well-appointed with everything you needed including a kitchen and laundry. We had 4 adults and 3 children in our apartment and there was plenty of room for everyone and you didn't feel cooped up like you do with normal hotel rooms. What I loved most was although they are apartments you still receive all the benefits and luxuries of a hotel including room service and daily housekeeping. The hotel is centrally located within the Colombo CBD and is only a few minutes away from most things via a taxi or tuk tuk. The hotel has 2 pools (adults and kids), playground, gym and a fabulous bar and restaurant. The food at the restaurant is delicious, the breakfast is amazing and the service provided by the breakfast team at the restaurant is the best I have experienced. No request is too much for them, they are always asking if they can get you something else and they will bring it right to your table. On one occasion my son was sick and my wife had to stay in the room with him while I brought my daughter down for breakfast. I told the manager on duty about the situation and he let me take some food back to the room for my wife, very thoughtful service. Great job done by the breakfast team and management! In general all staff at the hotel were very friendly and professional, but a big thanks and praise has to go to Chris from Guest Relations. He did an exceptional job in making sure our experience at the Hilton residence was the best possible. He was always very polite, professional and ever ready to help. As mentioned above my son was sick during our stay and Chris assisted us in getting a doctor to the room, check in on my son to see how he was doing and made sure we had everything we needed to help my son get better. He is a real asset to the hotel. I highly recommend this hotel for anyone travelling to Colombo, it has the best of both worlds with spacious apartment living and hotel luxury.

We had a 3 bedroom apartment for our family and again we had best days of our holiday here in Hilton Residence hotel. All smallest details were taken care of and their restaurant Flow is best restaurant in Sri Lanka. Will get back next time, thank you!

We had a wonderful 3 bedroom apartment . We were here for a wedding reception and were pleased with the accommodations, food and most of all the staff, who was super helpful. When I realized that I had forgotten the charger for my camera, Mark,a manager, was on it, successfully. My sister in law’s luggage was lost and the staff was stellar.The breakfast buffet was fantastic, the food at the reception was awesome and everyone had a great attitude. Th shower was ample and the furnishings adequate and mostly comfortable. The only downside was the bed, way too hard. We enjoyed the location and would recommend it to all.

Outstandingly good staff, very well trained with bright personalities. Well equipped, decent gym. Excellent swimming pool for serious swimmers. Properly air-conditioned rooms (vital in Colombo). Good sized apartment, useful location.
