The room rates are a bit pricey because it offers an excellent loation-near the rail and bus station/terminus. Its complimentary breakfast is a plus and the staff was helpfyl after I fell outside the hotel. And I was offered the room before the checkin time. Thanks.

            I had a full day layover but didn't need a place to sleep so booked CityRest Fort as it was conveniently located and very reasonably priced. It was perfect for what I needed - a place to leave my bag while I did sightseeing and a shower before my late night flight. Staff were friendly and helpful. I very much appreciated being greeted with a cold towel and drink.

            A lodge I'd love to stay in Colombo time and again!”
            The title of my summary should speak for itself as I really had a great time at CityRest Fort during my 3-day sojourn in Colombo. It's pity that I didn't have much time to explore Colombo though. Colombo served me as gateway city during my trips to Galle and Anuradhapura and further to Trincomalee. So I was there mainly for an overnight stay. In terms of cleanliness it's not just value for money but also a superb budget lodge that can't be found in Colombo. The staff are friendly and English speaking. The breakfast was nice I believe. Again it's all value for money. Sometimes you don't get what you pay for but at CityRest you would be with every penny you spent on your accommodation. Last but not least, one of the guys at the reception gifted me the compliments of CityRest Fort, a box of Ceylon tea from Ceylon. It was like a souvenir to me than just a normal gift. I'd love to stay there time and again should I come back to Colombo. Thank you!

            For the price you pay you can find a lot better options. the location is perfect. The dorm was really small and not so clean. I could here the guests in the other rooms. breakfast was okay. a lot of options although most of it was cold where it should be warm. Staff was nice but they let me pay more than a dollar for 1 printed ticket, a bit overpriced if you ask me. for the price you pay you can have a lot better options. There was no nice or welcoming feeling anywhere.

            Location is great, just around the corner from places to eat or explore a nice part of Colombo. We had a triple room, bunk beds and as single bed, with a small closet just beside the door. No windows at all. This was all within about 12 square meters so if you are claustrophobic you may want to think twice about booking here. The shared washrooms had several toilets and shower stalls, and were kept clean. Another positive was that it was quiet and we slept well. Breakfast was a pleasant surprise, simple but everything was tasty and there was a friendly vibe in the room. We even shared a few laughs at the toaster that ejected its contents in a most vigorous manner, and some of the Christmas decorations that suddenly plunged from the ceiling to the floor.
