The stay at Mandarina Colombo?
Staying at Mandarina Colombo was the perfect local experience. Mandarina Colombo was recently built which is perfectly located on Galle Road and within walking distance to local Sri Lankan restaurants, shopping, or a short rides away from major attractions.
The rooms are spacious and modern. Our family of 3 stayed here comfortably. You don't need to go to the rooftop for a view of Colombo because most rooms have a balcony you can walk out on. If you prefer more of an open view you can go to the rooftop where the infinity pool and fitness center is located.
The dining at Mandarina Colombo is by far amazing! In the morning the hotel offers international breakfast foods which are delicious. The choices are endless! For lunch and dinner there is normally a set menu that never changes with a variety of foods, but on certain days they have food events such as a buffet of local Sri Lankan food.
Checking in and out with the staff of the Mandarina Colombo we found them kind and informative on things to do around the hotel and settling in.
If you're on a limited stay here in Sri Lanka, I recommend Mandarina Colombo. The location for this hotel will get you in touch with the local side of Sri Lanka right here in Colombo.
Mandarina Colombo is located in Kollupitiya, one of the major cities in Colombo. The metro(train) is in walking distance or a cheap tuk tuk ride away. If you're interested in how Sri Lankans live, Kollupitiya is very local. You'll find Galle Face Green and the dining here is authentic Sri Lankan food.
