Accommodation after night time arrival

An opportunity has suddenly arisen for us to visit Sri Lanka. As it is in only 10 days' time there isn't much time to prepare! We'd be arriving at the airport 03.30 in the morning after a long flight from Europe. Could someone recommend accommodation in Negombo, where we'd like to head for a few days. We don't need luxury, an inexpensive (clean & safe) small hotel / guesthouse would be ideal, but we'd like to stay near the beach with some bars and restaurants nearby. What's the best transfer option?

We've been to Sri Lanka (Negombo) once but that was over 10 years ago - I doubt it is the same country now!

Thanks for any help.

Hi there,

Just pick any acco reviewed positively enough in TA within your budget; e.g. Silver Sands is mentioned regularly. And book from the night before already. Transfer by cab, there are 6 fixed price desks in Arrivals.

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]

Agree on Silversands as a budget accommodation.
