Taj Samudra

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We went there on a vacation. We were put in a room above the room being renovated. There were constant construction noise from the room below that disrupted our sleep and the staff told me the work will be going on until 8PM. After arguing with the front desk staff, they gave us another room and we had to pack up all out stuff and move...something that you don't like to do on a relaxing vacation. The new room was less comfortable and didn't have the balcony we really wanted. Ate at the hotel restaurant and the food wad just average. Won't go back again...

This is for the 3rd time I stayed. Staffs are very much motivated.. cleaning staffs are terrible. It takes long hours to get them, do the job badly. Restaurents are good...Best was the transport services and ur desk staffs are excellently well behaved and provided us out of imagine type of services.

Rooms were smelly and old. Not worth the room rate of 250 dollars per night.

We had business in Colombo which required an over night stay. In subsequent visits to Colombo we stayed at the Hilton and Kingsbury hotels, both were a major disappointment. What a pleasant surprise the Taj Samudra turned out to be! Be warned, don't make the same mistake we made. The Taj Samudra and all its beauty and gracious staff needs to be appreciated with a commitment of a multiple day stay. Our brief one day visit denied us the opportunity to really sample the greatness of this hotel.

I have been to Sri Lanka 20 times or more and the Taj is where I always begin my stay. It has a wonderful staff, food is superb, rooms are very clean and comfortable. Seaside rooms have a stunning view of the sunset. Unlike the newer hotels the Taj has character as well. I won't stay anywhere else in Colombo. Highly recommended.

The taj was fantastic. Good location to explore the city. Convenient. We were upgraded to suites, and wow! Would recommend this hotel.

The Taj looks and feels like a five star but with a three star price. The staff is always tring to make your stay better and does. Breakfast was great just don't expect American pancakes. I would recommend the hotel to anyone.
