Hotel Sapphire

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel is well located for anyone who has a connecting flight to catch at the airport. Food is good and rooms serve the purpose of a business stay. However, if you have a four member family one needs to ask the hotel staff for the booking reservation.

Hotel is located in Galle road where you can easily access to many important places in the area. However this is in sea side doesn't own a beach. It id built on city hotel concept mainly for business travelers. They English speaking friendly and helpful staff. considerable space available in the car park, compared to the other places in the area. Rooms are basic yet have lot of space. Food is OK at Restaurant. They have a little Swimming pool which is calm and not very crowded. That is something you can enjoy in place. Price seemed to be little hire compared to the facilities available in country side hotels. But closer to Colombo this is not very expensive. We didn't spent much time in the place ( only 1 night and we were out during the day time ) Hotel is clam at night and better than other hotels in the area.

This hotel situated near sea. i am visited this hotel on august 2016. Very good testy food here. beautiful swimming also here. i enjoy swimming with my friends. Night view also Very Beautiful. I am enjoy the trip.

Very average hotel- The rooms are very basic. There is church right next to the hotel with service starting at 6 AM..very loud and one can barely sleep if your room is located on the church side.The restaurant offers chinese and has a very poor ambience .The breakfast was average and the crockery is totally worn out..

Stayed in this hotel for second time within a year. The hotel is centrally located and well within reach of major shopping attraction of Colombo. Even Gall road, where this hotel is situated is good for basic shopping. Marine Drive is just walking distance where you can spend some quiet evening. Hotel has good mene yo suite Indian taste.

I stayed here on the last night of a tour of Sri Lanka, The hotel is dated and the bathroom in particular needed work. The bedroom was spacious and comfortable but with an odd mechanical noise that buzzed every minute or so and kept me awake. The pool area was tired with dirty plastic loungers and no one seemed to use it. The staff were very friendly and the location is good for the airport and shops.

I enjoyed our stay at hotel sapphire for two weeks. The room was very comfortable with a buffet breakfast which had western and Sri Lankan food. My stay was highlighted with the friendly staff. Mr Lahiru Laknath at the concierge was most helpful during our stay. Certainly hotel sapphire is a gem in the city. Regards Joseph Jayasinghe

Selected this property after reading the reviews but got completely disappointed with the room, service and restaurant facility! Normally, I never had an experience with any property that fails in all three sectors of customer satisfaction ! Internet is horrible! Location is ok but the food and service are pretty bad! Key persons in the reception, house keeping and in the restaurant are uniformly below standard and unfriendly ! I won't recommend this to anyone ! Sorry 😐

Initially was looking for a more reputed hotel, mostly because I wanted a very clean place but I chose this hotel because it is close to my wife's home and she wanted to visit home every day. We stayed here for six nights. Prices were reasonable. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. We loved all of them, except one who was managing hotel traffic, whose language was a bit rude. Room was comfortable and clean. I guess the washroom needs some minor repairs but was very clean. A bit noisy because it is close to the road, but that didn't bother us that much. My wife and I liked the breakfast. I think there were more Indian and Sri Lankan type food but there was something for everyone. Restaurant staff was friendly and helpful. Overall, my wife and I were very happy about this place. We will definitely consider coming back.

Overall experience was good. Room size is satisfactory,bed comfortable. Staff is friendly. Location is very good,near market. Food in the restaurant can be made more tasty. Variety should be there in Buffett provided.

No. 371, Galle Road Colombo
