Spending overnight to catch a flight early morning, the hotel offer a good location at only 15min from the colombo international airport. Owner is very nice and attentive. Some room are renovated but some are quite outdated with old decoration. Acceptable for overnight stay

The owner greeted us in the small hours of the morning and was very polite even though I had forgotten to leave a message we would check in after midnight. The hotel itself is very simple, but clean and a fine option for the price for short stay near the airport.

Although we arrived at Colombo airport late near midnight, we found that our hotel owner waited for us. Spacious clean rooms with hot water shower. Breakfast the next morning was good. Staff friendly and helpful. A good place to start on our trip around Sri Lanka.

We arrived in Negombo and stayed in Modern City Inn our first night in Sri Lanka. We weren't expecting a lot from any type of accommodation in Sri Lanka, to be quite honest, as long as it was clean. Which is what our room was. The owner and his wife were helpful and helped us to our room on the... More

Very close to the main street of Negombo, 10 min walking from the railway station and 15 min to the Airport by tuck tuck (600 rupees). Was good enough for our last night in the country. Don't stay in the bedroom close to the reception/kitchen. Very noisy and the bathroom is not inside the bedroom. Outside of the noise, the... More

This should be a good hotel in the area of Negombo which is closest to railway station, as far as I know. It is quite clean and breakfast was alright. However I feel cheated by their advertising, I've booked a single room with terrace for USD30 from booking.com, but once I've reached the hotel they checked me in to a... More
