A horror story unfolds
on Oct 14, 2017
For those who have seen a horror movie, staying in Crescat is similar experience. A beautiful view to start with, passage with carpet and sofa, good security lift to a high floor, what a view and then the room door closes. You are alone that is what you think...think again...remember Thriller Night creatures from the wooden panel come out...the noise of the ac duct ...if it is working or decides to work wakes you in the middle of the night
Go on if you want to experience horror with cockroaches first hand this is the place
Worst place to stay in Colombo

I had booked 2 apartments at Crescat Residencies for 2 weeks. I was put up at apartment 20-3C and my colleague was in 20-4D. Crescat Residencies is the worst place to stay in Colombo. Cleanliness is the big issue at this place. There were cockroaches in the kitchen, below the sink, inside the kitchen cabinets, bedroom, bathrooms and everywhere. Everyday we used to come across 2-3 cockroaches in the room. Even after complaining to management several times, they did not take any action. AC's in both the apartments were not maintained at all. There was continuous water leakage from AC or there was no cooling. The electric cooking hob was not working properly. Out of 4 hobs, 3 were not functional and the management did not bother to repair or replace it. Location and the view from apartment was the only best thing about Crescat. Never visiting this place again. No value for money. Irresponsible management.
dont book this place

this is not your average hotel apartments. this has several apartments which you can book thru several owners . so service levels depends on who you book with. electricity bills quite high. the security guard at the desk is extremely rude & arrogant. no one can do anything about it
Average apartment hotel.

Pros: Good location, spacious clean rooms, comfortable beds and very friendly accommodative management staff.
Cons: Below average washrooms, had to go through the basement with luggage, lobby has nothing to do with the rental property and grumpy security guards.
Right Time at The Right Place

Crescat Residency - this was my first visit to the place and I was in awe of this place. After a year of staying around in 5-stars and depleting my company's money, I found this place at the fagend of my trips to Colombo. Wish I had known about this place at the very beginning....
From the time I stepped in I felt like a home away from home and that too in the heart of the city. I could call my friends, colleagues, business associates have a small getogether or just sit and ogle at the vast expanse of ocean all evening.
This should be on your list of must-stays in colombo !!
Yes, you do not have B&B here, but that's okay as Crescat Boulevard is just a walk away, and you could dine at the food courts there, or walk into Cinnamon Grand and go for a bite at their patisserie.
I loved everything about my stay there on the 12th floor. The only thing that crashed was the TV channels, they weren't working on day 1 and even though I put in a request to have it rectified, nothing was done even on my day 5 exit from the place. The staff need to be a little more concerned on such requests; afterall who wouldn't like to watch a bit of TV and unwind after a day's hard toil??
I'm visiting this place again in lest than 10 days. Hopefully the idiot box works this time.
AND yes, now they've changed their name to Colombo Residency. So what are you waiting for??? Get out, go there and live there to feel it.
I conclude with the saying "If you want to understand a place or a culture, you must live there." This is so true with this place!!
