Hilton Colombo – Return Back To The Best Colombo Hotel In 2018

The first time I had a Hilton experience was way back in 2016 at Hilton Colombo.

The Hilton Colombo owns the title of Sri Lanka’s premier hotel. Located in the central part of the capital city, the hotel offers you a spectacular view of the Indian Ocean through its guest rooms, executive rooms and suites. This place makes a perfect stay for people who are in Sri Lanka for business, leisure or a mix of both. The luxurious accommodations and amazing services are meant to pamper you 24/7 and make your stay here an experience to remember for a lifetime.

My Favorite Room

The Executive room on the Executive floor is my favorite room in the entire hotel. It is a sprawling accommodation with state-of-the-art amenities such as a fully stocked mini bar and a mini-fridge. The suite offers splendid views of the Indian ocean and Colombo city. It has a sitting area with a sofa and high bandwidth Wi-Fi. The bed is huge and has hypoallergenic sheets with a luxurious set of sheets that gives you the feel of sleeping on clouds. The security system in the suite is also very high-tech with an electronic door locking mechanism. Other facilities include a beautiful bathroom with a marble tub and a shower with multiple pressure settings.
