In which budget class? Otherwise we'd recommend the Hilton, close to railway station!

Tnx,

Hi,

Yes better stay closer to the railway station since you will be taking the train in the morning. There are plenty of good hotels (5*) on the Galle Road (Kingburry,Galadari, Taj, Cinnamon Grand, Galle Face Hotel etc) apart from the hotel that Erik has mentioned. Also Hotel Renuka on Galle road as well. Your budget will be important here to recommend.

Rgds,

Treshi.

Colombo City Hotel is also stones throw away from the Fort Railway Station. If looking for budget stay YMCA has rooms but cannot guarantee cleanliness.

Renuka and Colombo City hotels might be okay for you.

All the best,

For clean budget accommodation

Try the Clock Inn Hotel. It's not next to a railway station but it's central enough.

5th Lane House : Similar to above though it's more of a boutique hotel than a hostel

City Beds - The Regent Guesthouse, is another new one that I've been hearing about. And apparently it's within walking distance to the Fort Railway station.
