          Convenient location for city shopping. Refurbished rooms - neat and clean and good decor. Authentic Sri lankan restaurant. Great place for business stay which are not sponsored by corporates.

          Maybe rates can still be reduced for overnight/ short stay to ensure 100% occupancy.

          Hi , I stayed at Renuka from the 18th of july 2011 until 21st of July 2011. It is a filthy , slum place. You cannot catogorize such places as hotels. Hotel staff are very rude. I found a dead cockroach in the toilet. I wrapped it in a pieace of paper and showed to the front office staff. When I mentioned this to arnila (hotel owner). She told me that I brought a cockroach from sweden. Minibar was full of dirt. And the cleaning staff do not use glouce to clean up toilets. I told them not to touch my tea cup , my daughters feeding bottle. Any way after staying this place, my daughter got really sick was hospitalized for 5 days. I will never forgive the pain that we went through. They ruined our vacation.I Will never make hotel reservation through your website. I am really disappointed. I will makesure any swedes will not stay at Renuka. Thanks. Nilakshi Pagoda

          It was overall a perfect stay, we didn't stay much at the hotel , but for the time we were there , we found staffs to be friendly nice and always smiling. they were quite helpful and the location were great for our purpose. I would recommend this hotel for any, who is traveling for a short stay in Colombo.

          air condition

          There's the big local ants under the pillow, but when I calim this to the housekeeping, they just throw it, I have tried my best to explain to the customer service manager, but they insist that there's no such big ants, just very small things. Very difficult to speak with them, I think I will not book this hotel from this time.

          Convenient location. Accommodating staff.

          Beds weren't very comfortable. The building had an old feel. Price was a little high for the overall quality of the hotel, but the location was convenient for us. I would recommend the hotel if it met a specific need, like location.

        • Couple
          7.8

          The location of the hotel is excellent. The staff is quite friendly.

          The in room facilities provided is not so good. For example, i booked for 2 person but inside the room only got 1 towel. And no hair dryer had been provided also.

        • Couple
          9.6

          Very clean, peaceful atmosphere.

          Less TV channels (missed the manchester united vs barcelona match) :(

        • Single
          4.6

          decent location but there are better places in better locations for better rates.

          way too expensive for what it was. service was slow. nothing is included in the already high price (breakfast, internet...etc are all extra)

        • Single
          9.6

          The nearness of the beach and shopping facilities

          Some of their southern Indian dishes were excreble. Must improve

          Location is excellent n truly value 4 money!!!!!!!!!!!!

          Very comfortable with staff helpfull and nice

        • Older travelers
          6.2

          Proximity to main areas of colombo and hence easy commuting.

        • Couple
          7.8

          Clean, modern and spacious room. We had a room in the newest building. Since all hotels in the Colombo area are extremely pricy in respect to other hotels in Sri Lanka, this is not a bad choice. If you don't mind to have a hotel further away from the city centre, you can probably save some money by searching a hotel on the spot. A lot of the hotels in Colombo can not be found online.

          Swimming pool was closed during our visit.
