  • If you’re looking for a cheap hotel in Colombo, you should consider visiting during the low season. You'll find cheaper accommodations in Colombo in May and October.
  • Hotel room prices vary depending on many factors but you’ll most likely find the best hotel deals in Colombo if you stay on a Sunday. The opposite is true for, Monday, which is usually the most expensive day.
  • Book at least 66 days before your stay begins to get the best price for your Colombo accommodation.
  • How long should you stay? KAYAK users usually book their accommodation in Colombo for 1 day.
  • Hoping to do some shopping during your time in Colombo? Select a hotel in Pettah, a neighbourhood known for having a series of famous outdoor bazaars — commonly referred to as the Pettah Market. The 55 Fort Train Hostel is a budget-friendly choice located in the heart of this neighbourhood and is only a 6-minute walk from the city’s main port.
  • To discover some of Colombo’s green spaces, choose a hotel near Galle Face Green, such as the chic Taj Samudra located a 2-minute walk away. This urban park stretches for more than 500 meters along the oceanfront and covers about 5 hectares.
  • If you are interested in the history of Buddhism, consider staying in a hotel near the Gangaramaya Buddhist Temple, a historic site that contains many artefacts, as well as a visitor education centre. Alternatively, the Residence by Uga Escapes is set in a mansion that was built in the 19th century and is only a 4-minute walk from the temple.
  • Travellers who want to learn more about Sri Lanka’s heritage and culture should pick a hotel near the National Museum of Colombo, such as the modern Le Papillon hotel, which is less than a 5-minute walk away. This museum contains many artefacts and objects related to the history of Sri Lanka and offers both guided and self-guided tours.
