Looking for a reasonable buget hotel for one or 2 night stop over in Colombo then Sunshine hotel offers great value. The hotel is clean and staff are curtious and helpful. In the heart of colombo everything is within walking distance. There are no meals served but there are plenty of small street eating places within the vacinity where you can eat cheaply. The hotel does have WIFI factility.

Stayed here two nights on our way out of colombo last we week when in town. The rooms are nicely kept, recently upgraded & very clean. On top of that the staff is extremely friendly & the prices are affordable. Located in Colombo 4, by the ocean ( not on the beach ) with access to all main roads. Almost all attractions, restuarents, pubs/clubs from this hotel is an extremely short cab ride away ( less than 500 rupees on a Cab and prob less on a tuk-tuk ).. Great budget/medium price ranged hotel in Colombo!

Room Tip: See if you can get a room on an upper floor facing north

We booked Hotel Sunshine on the basis of other people’s reviews and it turned out to be a good choice. The room was decent for the price and the reception staff were helpful. It’s situated near Bambalapitiya Railway Station in Colombo 04, so you can get a train or a rickshaw into the Fort/Galle Face Green, or walk up Galle Road. Also, it’s a couple of minutes’ walk from House of Fashion, which is a clothes shop with lots of bargains (if you like that sort of thing).

We had to pay 300r/day extra for wifi - I'm not sure whether this is usual in Colombo but everywhere else I've stayed in Sri Lanka it's been included at no extra cost.

Budget accom in colombo is tough, but I think this may be the answer, rooms average at about 2750rps, but i got mine for 2000rps! Room 107, room was clean, but could do with a bit of a touch up..advertised as cold water only, but o my second night i had the hotest shower i have had in weeks!! wifi 300rps per day. Location is good, supermarket 2 min walk away! 300rps tuk tuk to bus station in fort.
Plenty of budget southern Indian restaraunts located nearby, as well as chinese,thai etc.
All in all. If staying in Colombo on a budget, you could do a lot worse than here!!

Room Tip: room 107, was fine, no issues or concerns at all!
