Centrally located hotel and reasonably priced Nov 23, 2014
The Colombo City Hotel has a great location - it is right across from the World Trade Center and beside the Old Dutch Hospital where people can dine and have a drink afterwards. While it is a small hotel, most of the rooms are classified as "Standard" but they also have "Standard Promo" and "Standard Promo with Breakfast". As we had to leave very early to get to the Colombo Fort Train Station, we didn't go for the rate with breakfast anymore.

For some reason we were lucky to have gotten the best room on the fourth floor, since I asked for three rooms all on the same floor so we can easily call and meet each other. Our room was facing a courtyard below and so it was breezy if we decided not to use the airconditioning. Not only that, our room was huge! Easily 25 sqm and there was a third bed that was already in the room. However I didn't like it because when I sit on the edge of the bed it starts to move upwards due to the fulcrum like a seesaw. So we just used the rollaway bed to keep our stuff nearby since the closets were a few meters away. And there was also a couch by the window, so that's where we'd sit while the stuff were on the bed.

The bathroom wasn't spectacular but it was good enough and had a tub. It was in working condition, complete with bidet, and nice fragrant sandalwood soap. It could have been larger though considering the size of the room. But who's complaining, the overall experience was quite good.

During the time we were there there was a batch party happening for an all girl's high school. So it was quite noisy at the ground floor level plus they were hosing down the outside areas when we arrived. Ideally cleaning should be done without guests noticing, so that part they still have to improve on. There was a small driveway and a minute walk down the road you would get to the side of the street where a few tuktuks were always on the ready, waiting for their next customers who they will charge an exhorbitant rate of 200 rupees (well one has to pay for convenience).

Overall this was a reasonably good hotel considering the price (about $80 on agoda.com) vis-a-vis the location and convenience factor.
standard room but this was the big…
