We stayed in Hotel Shalimar for one night when we arrived in Colombo. The hotel is clean, big and the staff are generally friendly.
The room we stayed in was large and had a large bathroom with good shower.
Location wise you are quite close to the centre and can get a Tuk Yuk to most places for about 100-200 Rupees. (Always haggle)
The Beer was cheap and good! Breakfast was ok.
For one night this was perfect and we headed down to Hikkaduwa the next day on the train.
Colombo as a place is alright but to be honest I wouldn't go back. Head to the beaches or Kandy for an adventure.
