Hotel Indra Regent Colombo Review

Hotel Indra Regent located at 383, R. A. De Mel Mawatha, Colombo - 3 is a budget hotel in a good location. This road, R. A. De Mel Mawatha, is also called Duplication Road that runs parallel to Galle Road. Only one way traffic is allowed on these roads which means if traffic on Galle Road is moving towards Colombo Down Town, traffic on R. A. De Mel Mawatha will be going in the opposite direction. There are a few service roads in-between that connect these two roads but that still requires a bit of extra travel for taking u-turns, etc. From down-town Colombo, Tuk Tuk fare to reach this hotel should be around 250 Lankan Rupees. A standard room in Indra Regent costs around 55-60 USD per day without breakfast. My standard room and the attached bathroom were basic but clean, the room airconditioning was effective, and sleep quality was good. There was free wifi internet in the room that worked well. I wish they had kept a tea / coffee maker in the room. Apart from that Indra Regent passed the value test of a budget hotel. But there are a couple of issues. (Read on...)

The hotel shares its building with a massage joint and a sort of a night club. Though these activities are restricted to areas separated from the hotel, in my humble opinion, this may not be a proper hotel for a family to stay particularly with young children. I did not see any family staying there. The second issue is of general atmosphere. Decor in the corridors and other common areas needed upgrading resulting in an overall dull atmosphere. But if one is looking to stay in this area of Colombo and save money on hotel, Indra Regent is OK.
