This place is amazing for the money you pay. Located bang in the center of CBD. All the happening places are close by. Just a walking distance to the beach and the port. The hotel is located in front of world trade center. Located close to shopping malls and restaurants.

We found the Ceylon City Hotel extremely basic, but, yes, with friendly staff. Albeit the receptionist went to sleep when our hired driver turned up, and failed to tell us. But Colombo altogether is quite a difficult town, with seriously difficult roads and pavements. We walked for miles to even try to find a bar!!

First of all let me thank you for your positive comments on our friendly staff staff.

Unfortunately I can read that your stay wasn't very much pleasant with us. If you ever plan to visit Colombo we request you to personally email us so we would like to host you and show you the true hospitality we are known of. We hope to see you again very soon.

Clean, safe basic hotel about 5 mins walk from the ocean. Very friendly staff, delicious breakfast. Take a walk to the ocean road and take a right to get to a restaurant called The Fat Crab for dinner

We stayed over one week in Ceylon City Hotel. The staff are friendly and helpful. Excellent location in Bambalapitiya where all amenities in Colombo are within just few minutes. We booked Room+ Breakfast but we had most of our meals from the Flamingo Resturant within the hotel as the food is so good there. Daily breakfast buffet with a mixture of Western and Sri Lankan cuisines.
Rooms are equipped with a Mini Fridge,TV, individual split system AC and Electric Hot Water units.
Daily Room service and change of linen and towels unless you request not do so.
Good value for money!
