Hotel The Saffron
Ranked #52 of 153 Colombo B&B and Inns
Reviewed 8 April 2012

In truth I only found this place having discovered most of the apparently higher class options were already fully booked, but what a stroke of luck. The Saffron is small and basic, but what great value, and that's not to say it lacks anything. The room was a good size, and very clean, with a good AC unit, fan, and a TV. The bed (4 poster!) was very comfortable, and there was always hot water available in the bathroom. The cost (very very cheap in comparison to a lot of the options in Colombo) included breakfast, which the staff were more than happy to make how you like each morning. The only negative was the location in respect to city attracttions (of which they aren't that many!), but having said that you're no more than 15 to 20 minutes away in a tut tut (local taxi) which are plentiful at the top of the street (or staff will arrange one to collect you from the hotel). The positive to the location is the fact its very peaceful and quiet, due to the fact its a 5 minute walk to the main road. All in all this is a great little hotel (B&B) and I would recommend to anyone, certainly anyone with at least half a brain whose travelled in this part of the world before and knows what to expect (i.e. this is Colombo, Sri Lanka, not Milan, Paris or London).
