Situated quite far from airport (takes around an hour to reach). Rooms are clean but the staff has little value for customers. No proper guidance to visit places in Colombo. No good restaurants nearby. All you can see towards righ of hotel is automobile shops to a far stretch. Food at hotel restaurant was not very impressive. Choose this hotel only if you run out of any other options.

This hotel can be an option when you are on a transit or not staying more than 2 nights.Nothing negative about the facilities you get in the rooms: AC,Clean bathroom,comfortable bed,wifi(very slow),clean toiletories,room size and prompt service.
The problem with the hotel is its set up.The rooms are so dimly lit that u feel gloomy and fall asleep as soon you enter the room.Its impossible to know whether its day,night or raining outside.We had a room on the back side with the restaurant adjacent to the room.The windows of our room was permanently fixed as restaurant was beside them and you can hear hotel staffs chatting(it feels they are just next to you) when you are using the bathroom(sometimes it feels intimidating).
Service in the hotel is prompt and the boys are very polite and hospitable.The restaurant is decent if you want to sit with a beer and novel or wanna surf the net and have a fag coz the food there is not upto the mark.
We paid 9500++ LKR for 2 nights.
Overall its a nice budget option with almost all the facilities you need for ur stay but the gloomy set up may feel a bit annoying.Its cheaper when compared to other options in the same category in Colombo.

stayed in colombo for the cricket and the hotel is perfectly placed. Clean, cheap, with spacious rooms that you can access the wifi in so ideal for a stop over or when you need a central hotel on a budget.

dont expect luxuries, and the restaurant wont win any awards!

dont choose a room at the front if youre a light sleeper!

Room Tip: rooms at the back protect you from traffic noise. no lifts.

I stayed in Shalimar along with my cousin for a few days during World T20. It's a fairly old building on one of the busy thoroughfares in an area of the city known for auto spare parts; so it's quite noisy alright, but it is quite close to the Premadasa Stadium - a short LKR 100 tuk-tuk ride gets you to the venue - and quite close to Fort Railway station and Odel too.. The room I'd booked was a deluxe double room, which was quite spacious, about 300 sq ft in area. The issue i had with the room was that the beds were at one end of the room and the A/C was on the other side, so it took a good 30 mins to get the room cool enough and because there's no ceiling or table fan, you're left to stew in the room till the A/C takes effect.
