Marino Beach Colombo
Colpetty,Colombo - View on map
"The people of Sri Lanka are very nice and welcoming in general, they are honest and friendly. The staffs of Marino beach Colombo are no different. They are very nice, kind and guest-friendly. The female receptionist and others were very kind to give us a room with a better view of the sea upon request. The room and everything else is neat and clean. Nice bathroom fittings with an automated blind curtain. The room has a touch of aesthetics to make anyone’s stay here a memorable experience. On top of that, guests here get unlimited access to the infinity pool, garden, and Jacuzzi. The Food Emporium and Marino Mall with the VR Park can make life easy, especially if you are traveling with kids. The food emporium has excellent Local, Indian, Western food. Price of food is reasonable. Also, the view of the sea is excellent from there. You can smoke at the pool, at the balcony of your hotel room, and at the restaurants of the food emporium. Do taste the tea in the restaurant. It’s excellent!"

The Kingsbury Colombo
Colombo World Trade Centre,Colombo - View on map
"Excellent hotel with friendly staff, extremely comfortable rooms and a great selection of bars and restaurants. I am a regular visitor to Sri Lanka as I have family in Colombo and have stayed in pretty much all of the "better" Colombo hotels at some point in the last couple of years. I would thoroughly recommend The Kingsbury - It is a very versatile hotel appropriate for various types of travellers. The rooms have a luxurious but homely feel, with seriously comfortable beds and pillows! A drink in the Sky bar is a must even if you aren't a resident. The breakfast choice and quality was pretty much the best I've experienced in Sri Lanka. I would also recommend the foyer coffee shop - A bit crowded at times but the cakes and chocs are lovely and well priced for the quality. Overall, an excellent hotel that I will most definitely be returning to! "

Galadari Hotel
Colombo World Trade Centre,Colombo - View on map
"We spent 10 days in Sri Lanka and stayed in Galadari for 7 days (they could not give us extension for last 2 days). The hotel is good and we will recommend the place to anyone who is going. Location is superb, with view of Marine Drive and President Palace. The buffet Breakfast provided by the hotel as a part of the rate has wide choice and good food - very good option for a tourist as you do not know where and what lunch you will have. The hotel is a little old and needs renovation, but the rooms we got gave us no room for complaint. The hotel has been taken over by new owners who are waiting for the end of the civil war to start renovation. Transport cost in Colombo is high. The hotel unfortunately has no free pick up service from Airport, but does provide a paid cab facility on request. The staff are helpful and properly trained. The service levels were also good. The management prides its self on service and uses it as a marketing tool to offset lack of renovation. "

Mandarina Colombo
Colpetty,Colombo - View on map
"I stayed in the Mandarina for about a week whilst I was working in an office in Colombo. The hotel its self is very nice, the families and amenities are nice and the rooms are modern and clean. The rooftop pool is nice and a cool place for taking photos and relaxing. The buffet breakfast they provide is also good, with many different options from western to Sri Lankan foods. The staff are mildly friendly, although did sometimes give me a weird vibe - maybe because I am a young professional? Some of my local friends came to visit a few times and they did not question anything. I had a great stay here and would stay here again. Tip: Don't use the tuktuks outside the hotel, they tried to charge me 700 rupees, use the PickMe App my journey was only 300. "

OZO Colombo Hotel
Bambalapitiya,Colombo - View on map
"I have stayed in this hotel over and over again. If I travel to COLOMBO and rooms are available this will always be my choice. Why? Becuase they provide a great level of service, FO Manager is one of the most Friendliest Staff I ever met from Sri Lanka. Several times I have requested for late check-out due to my work and business schedule, they never said no and always assisted if rooms are available. Special mention to Receptionist Bhanu, Bell Boys Angelo, Thalipa, and all other Bell Boys can't remember their names. Also the Quality of the Aminities in the Room and Food is considered as good considering the price. Well Done Keep up the Good Work/"

Galle Face Hotel
Colombo Galle face Green,Colombo - View on map
"On my last night in Sri Lanka, I chose not to be a backpacker. I couldn't say no to this lovely and elegant heritage hotel in Colombo. I wish I could have stayed longer. The staff were great. Check-in/out was seamless and they have a welcome tea drink. Breakfast was lovely. And the dining/pool area is one of the best areas in the hotel. It's a historic hotel with a couple of celebrity guests in the past like Mark Twain, Yuri Gagarin, Mahatma Gandhi, Roger Moore, Carrie Fisher, John D. Rockefeller, Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford!"

Global Towers Hotel & Apartments
Colombo Wellawatte beach,Colombo - View on map
"Highly recommended location for a good price. Reasonably clean but hotel management can, with only a very small effort, keep it superbly clean given that it is a new building. Service is prompt and warmth typical of Sri Lankans is evident in the reception and handling of guests. Rooms are small by Asian standards but there is masive wastage of common areas which could be done up and, with a bit of guest management, limited bed space could be compensated for largeish groups. We were a group of three families whose rooms were scattered. Common area facilities of the apartments were not accesible and not well-equipped. We did not sample the entire food menu and restricted ourselves to breakfast buffet since Colombo has many well-known food spots. "

Taj Samudra Colombo
Colombo Galle face Green,Colombo - View on map
"generally the hotel staff were excellent and attentive. the housekeeping staff in particular were especially friendly. the hotel had reasonably priced car service to all popular attractions within colombo as well as all over sri lanka. one minor point is that the concierge/travel staff could have been more informed about the best times to leave for excursions out of the city. we were informed to leave slightly later than we realized was optimal and this caused us to get stuck in traffic and miss certain activities at various sites on our trip to kandy."

Colombo City Hotel
Colombo World Trade Centre,Colombo - View on map
"I and my wife stayed there for a week in December 2012. The staff was very kind and walked an extra mile to treat us nice. This hotel is in the heart of Colombo (opposite the World Trade Center just across from Hilton (5 star) and Galadari (4 plus star). The best thing we enjoyed was the Colombo Night Racing. This is the only hotel in Colombo where you can enjoy Colombo Night Racing from the balcony. In the neighborhood is the Colombo's most modern shopping mall "The Old Dutch Hospital". Excellent location !!!"

More about Colombo

Colombo is Sri Lanka's capital and most commercially successful city. In a country known for its rural appeal, this is where travelers go to experience the big city. Hotels in Colombo range from budget guesthouses to 5-star giants. Boutiques hotels in colonial neighborhoods are a growing trend here.

Sri Lanka is a diverse country, a fact made apparent by the mix of Buddhist and Hindu temples, mosques, and colonial churches in the area, including . The Galle Face Green covers acres of beachfront property and is ideal for a picnic.

Colombo isn't the kind of destination travelers envision when planning a trip to Sri Lanka. There are great sightseeing and leisure opportunities here, especially in the beach hotels of Colombo where the best service and amenities are found. With tourists busy in other parts of Sri Lanka, those who venture into Colombo don't have to contend with crowds or long lines.

Bandaranaike International Airport lies north of the city center and serves as the nation's major gateway. Flights connect to major Southeast Asian cities and a few travel hubs in Europe and the Middle East. Hotels near the airport cater mainly to business travelers and short-term visitors who want to avoid the one-hour taxi ride to the city center.
