Ceylon City Hotel
Ranked #26 of 54 Hotels in Colombo
Reviewed 18 April 2017 via mobile

Clean and comfortable hotel. Staff very helpful and friendly. Is located south of the main hustle and bustle of Colombo, which we appreciated as it was very quiet. You can get a tuk tuk from end of the hotel's road to the main part of Colombo for 300 rupees; much preferable to staying amongst the constant stream of traffic and tooting horns of the centre.

Colombo was a nice city - clean and safe - and Ceylon City Hotel was a convenient, comfortable and friendly place to stay. The staff were very helpful and the area is quite interesting, plus it's only a short tuktuk ride to the Fort area and markets. The shower in our room would have been a bit tight if you were plump! But the facilities were fine, including a lift, aircon, restaurant, etc.

Overall it was a comfortable place to stay , although i must point out the receptionist was a bit too formal , the concierge person was quite friendly and accommodating he was a senior employee, not really sure about his name

all and all it was a comfortable stay :)
