City Motel is situated in the adrenaline filled market district of Pettah in Colombo. The area comes to life during the day with many traders, bargain hunters and discount re-sellers marketing their wares all over the More area. It is the perfect place for visitors to pick up a great bargain or a souvenir to take back with them; right from the heart of Colombo's bazaar district. City Motel offers basic yet clean and comfortable rooms for budget conscious travelers. All guest rooms are equipped with a ceiling fan, comfortable mattress with free bedding and a writing table. We have en-suite rooms as well as shared common bathrooms. Free high speed WiFi internet is available along with a common room with cable TV. Breakfast in not included but can be purchased for an additional fee along with other food and beverage options. The area is also home to several restaurants and coffee shops from where our staff will happily deliver any items to your rooms. Less
