  • This is not the one in the middle of Fort, Khan is actually at the roundabout where Sir Baron Jayathilaka Mawatha street enters Pettah, so you'll see it if you walk that way. It's nothing special but ...  more »

Where to stay in Colombo

Despite its relatively low cost of living, Colombo accommodations tend to be fairly pricey. Close to the sea and the lake, as well as near the city's parks and the plazas, hotels come in the form of old colonial buildings and ultra-modern high rises, with a decent selection of each to choose from. Budget-conscious travelers should pay attention to the short rental options in the town's more residential areas, or look for the smattering of simple, but serviceable options close to the main train stations, and on the side streets set back from the waterfront.
