    The location was good.

    After a long flight from Dubai, reached the Hotel at 3 p.m. They made us wait till almost 5 p.m to give us the room!! Check in time is supposed to be 2 p.m. Our booking was for a Deluxe 3 bedroom apartment for 4 adults. Our children were supposed to land at midnight. Gave instructions to the reception about their arrival. When they arrived, reception staff said they have no booking despite the children explaining the facts about the booking for 4 adults. Took lots of discussions and cajoling to let them in finally. Had booked a transport for next morning at 6.15 a.m to travel to Colombo Fort station. When we checked out at 6.15, there was no Cab and no one had a clue about the booking. The person at the reception while we checked in and made all the promises obviously didn't leave any instruction to the staff in the next shift.Deluxe apartment was pretty ordinary and certainly is a big let down for a Holton brand. Overall, a pretty bad one night stay.

    The location was great. We stayed in a penthouse suite on the 32nd floor and the view from the rooms, hall and dining area were spectacular. The rooms were nice and spacious. The staff were very friendly and immediately responded to any requests we had, be it room service, fresh towels, extra pillows, or even house keeping; the staff never hesitated and were on call 24/7. We were even allowed to entertain friends. There are plenty of convenience stores and banks within a few minutes walking distance.

    While checking in there was a confusion with the rates between the booking I made through Booked.net and the rates on their system. It took a while for it to get rectified but all was sorted in the end. Didn't get to enjoy a welcome drink that was advertised. Only one safe in the suite, located in the master bedroom, which can be an issue when traveling as a group. Microwave and kettle was not available in the room when checking in, but was provided when requested. But the rest of the experience we had during our stay was fabulous.

    Pool and Gym staff really friendly and completely looked after my family and I, also the flow restaurant has an awesome selection we enjoyed every meal so much we ate there most nights all the staff were very competent and even replaced orders that my kids decided to change after receiving.

    Lifts slow & front desk could be very confusing at times.

    Arriving in Colombo in the early hours of the morning, it was a welcome relief to find our room ready and waiting our arrival and the staff were most helpful getting us to our room asap. The breakfast next day was delicious with a large variety of choices. The morning was spent by the pool where the staff was most attentive to our every need. A special commendation to the Life Guard at the pool who jumped in and rescued a mother and child from drowning when they both got into difficulties in the water. Well done. We spent two nights at the Colombo Hilton Residence, and will have no hesitation in choosing this hotel again.

    We could not fault our stay here, so there was little not to like.

    The bed was comfortable, staff welcoming, ambience soft and soothing, air-conditioning that worked, swimming pool excellent, pool staff and food and drink staff very helpful and attentive, breakfast hearty and abundant. What more can I say? a lovely night's stay at an excellent hotel. Thanks heaps.

    The very hot weather. Not the fault of the hotel!

    Superb

    We booked an apartment for three of us. It was great having our own rooms, a kitchen, dining area, lounge area and two bathrooms. The gym and pool were good, plus a tennis court (additional charge) if you can manage to play in the heat. Just a 20 minute walk to Galle Face Green if you feel like a bit of exercise. Otherwise, plenty of tuk tuks for hire. Great view of Colombo from the upper floors - we were on the 24th.

    The management of the pool area later in the day wasn't great. They could resolve this quite easily by insisting children and young teenagers are accompanied by an adult or simply banning ball games. A management issue - the staff were, without exception, really welcoming and helpful. Also, plenty of noisy construction work going on (day and night) very close to the hotel. But this is not unusual in central Colombo at the moment.

    The room we stayed in was outdated and did not match the photos online. Be sure to ask before booking so you don't have the same bait and switch.

    Very helpful and friendly staff who tried to make amends for the room issues.

    Initial room - filthy! We had to be moved but even then lots of gaps in room supplies and missing items- eg tea towels.
