My husband and I stayed tat Colombo City Hotel in April and chose it because of its location which was the only thing that was good about it. It's by the beach and the Hilton and has lots of little restaurants around. The room, however, was terrible: extremely old, dusty, smelly and small. The bathroom was tiny and smelly (we didn't use it at all) and the electrical stuff was unsafe (we got shocked a couple of times). Also, they were renovating the hotel, which gave it an even more eerie personality and it was really not pleasant.
I'll say that if the renovations work out and it does get a "facelift" this hotel is a good deal. As it is now, it's not worth it.
