Colombo is the largest city of Sri Lanka and quite a busy one at that. The city itself is quite costly, making your trip a little expensive. If you are one of those who don’t want to spend too much on accommodation to save on the trip, then we give you a list of popular budget hotels in Colombo. Just take a look:

  • Shalimar

    A decent budget hotel in Colombo, this place is ideal for those who don’t wish to spend too much on accommodation. A value for money hotel, it is located near the railway station. The facilities provided by the hotel are pretty basic and thus this place is good as a transit base and not for long stays. Don’t get intimidated by the look of the staff ( they look like the bad guys from an old James Bond film), as they are quite friendly and polite.

    Tariff per room starts at LKR 4000 per night.

    Address: 46, Panchikawatte Road
    Sri Lanka

  • Silvikris Villas

    A true hidden gem in the city of Colombo with its impressive villa and friendly staff.  Located close to the attractions of Colombo, it has spacious, clean, comfortable and cosy rooms. Each room has a beautiful balcony attached which has a view of the garden adjoining the villa. They offer a private city tour for around LKR 2500 that takes around 7 hours, covering all the main points of interest as well as a few lesser known places. The place usually remains full as it has only 6 rooms, so, book in advance.  

    Tariff per room starts at LKR 4600 per night.

  • The Saffron

    The Saffron hotel proves to be a great escape from the chaos of the city. Tucked away in a seemingly leafy part of Colombo the accommodation is basic with a spacious and comfortable bed.

A highly recommended place with great value for money.
