Colombo, while pleasant, is a place that has few real tourist sights in the city center. Unless you're staying at one of the five-star hotels in Colombo proper (like the lovely Galle Face hotel on the green), I suggest basing yourself in this beachy suburb just 10km south.
Mt. Lavinia is a quiet, clean, prosperous little place with good-value accommodation, especially in the budget range, and being just 5 minutes to the beach from just about everywhere, far more relaxing than Colombo's congested environs. There's a good range of dining and drinking options in the neighborhood, and the beach itself is surprisingly clean and pretty, decent for a morning or evening swim.

This was a lovely Hotel in Sri Lanka we had a wonderful breath taking View over the Lush Green Hillside in one direction and a stunning Seaview the other ...The Hotel rooms were lovely and clean the rooms were decorated in beautiful Serene colours which made you instantly want to relax which for myself was wonderful as that was the idea of the holiday ..the furniture was of an Eclectic mix and new which was easy on the eye ..the en suite was massive which was lovely and tiled from floor to ceiling.
The daily maid came to the room and cleaned only when we had gone down to the pool to lounge around for a few hours and she kept the room Immaculate at all times every time you used a towel it was replaced there was at least 6 towels freshly laundered in the room every day .. they also placed bottled water and fresh fruit daily ..and chocolates on the pilow at night nice touch ...teh staff were always smiling and nothing seemed like trouble for them very willing to please ...the pool was a fair size and was cleaned all the time ...there was some Culteral entertainment at night which was pleasant then after it was Cocktails on teh Terrace which was lit up at night by beautiful lanterns the glow was lovely the music was Classical and pop which was easy to listen too ...teh food for Breakfast ws a grand affair so much to choose from and freshly cooked to your specification fresh fruit juices and real fresh they would mix the fresh oranges and lemons in front of you ...the evening meals were something else fresh BBQ Curries Steaks anything you wanted
