Коломбо, Шри-Ланка The Grand Orient hotel in Colombo

Colombo cannot be called the capital of budget hotels. Unfortunately, to find a budget hotel with acceptable quality at a reasonable price and with good location is almost impossible. There is a clear shortage of middle-sized hotels of good quality for an average price of: here you can find or expensive hotels from $ 50 per room or dead backpacker guesthouses $ 25 with cockroaches and dirty sheets.

In other words, don't expect to clear $ 30 a double room with all amenities. Is more likely to expect to spend for a normal room at least $ 50, and then, when booking in advance. So if possible, book hotels in Colombo in advance in any season. If you do decide to look for a hotel on the site, don't forget to hard bargain. Originally called rates overestimated at times and sometimes you can bargain to even lower prices than booking in advance.

Find and book a hotel in Colombo can on these sites or via the search form from Agoda:

Hotels in Colombo are scattered throughout the city, a single concentration in a tourist place no. If you are staying in Colombo at the beginning or at the end of the journey for a couple of days to explore the city, go for a run in his sights and to go further, it is best to choose a hotel closer to the center, i.e. to the areas of Colombo Fort or Pettah.

So you will be closer to all the attractions, transport (bus and railway station are located in the Pettah area), and entertainment. The actual areas Colmbo Fort and Pettah very interesting for evening walks, and the Pettah district is the oldest and most colorful. To find a location in these areas, and next to them is possible, but you have to find and hard to bargain, because prices initially called sometimes simply speculative.

If you do not plan to stay in Colombo, and want to use it as a staging point to rest after or before a long flight, you can stay at a hotel in the airport area. There are a few hotels at an affordable price, just in order to rest for the night. But keep in mind that a quick dash to the city and to walk on it will fail: trip "quick" is possible only by taxi, and will take 1-2 hours one way depending on the congestion on the roads. If the intention is to walk around the city, it is better to immediately go to the town and to stay at the hotel.

Коломбо, Шри-Ланка The beach in mount Lavinia

The Mount Lavinia. There in Colombo special district – mount Lavinia (Mount Lavinia, Mt Lavinia) and surrounding areas. District mount Lavinia stretched out on the coast South of the city. Although administratively it is a suburb of Colombo, it is considered an urban area and back to Colombo.

The beach here is sandy and good for swimming and sunbathing, while the perfect. Yes, and the neighborhood is adorable and very different rhythm from the city centre: it is quieter and calmer, though at first sight it may seem that this is a real slum. Here you can find cheap hotels and guesthouses already on arrival into place, but the problem is that they are not at every step, and have not a few stray, before you can stumble to the hotel. In short, if you decide to stay for a holiday in Colombo for a few days-a week, better place than mount Lavinia to find.
