Amazing hotel with an amazing staff. Great value for money”

C1 Fort was an excellent boutique hotel in the city. The staff went above and beyond to make our stay amazing and comfortable. The hotel was a great price, it provided a clean room, with modern bathroom, the breakfast every morning was wonderful, WIFI was available throughout the hotel - and was very good service. The price of the rooms combined with the amazing staff made this one of our favourite stays in Sri Lanka. If you're looking for well priced options with new and modern rooms, bathrooms and facilities - i completely recommend C1 Fort.

Very good and centrally located if travelling to/from the Colombo Fort Railway Station is a priority. To Fort Station, it’s about 3 mins tuk-tuk ride with smooth traffic. 15 mins walk. If not, not really within walking distance of Malls or eating places. Very clean, good value and staff is friendly. Tho they could be more savvy in recommending nearby places to eat and shop.

I cannot comment about food servis, as I have no experience. Except shower booth, brand new interior and superb location for LCC newcomers to Colombo, SriLanka. Now and till winter, we may want to have airport TAXI rererved wisely for 1500- LKR. Route 187 airport bus to Fort(150-300LKR) might not come for very few-er late night guests.

I never thought some accommodations this great exist in the heart of Colombo City. So near to The Old Dutch Hospital for nightout, to the Galle Face beachside for a morning or afternoon run, to the business district for any official or unofficial business. I will definitely stay here over and over again when given the chance to revisit Sri Lanka.

Beautiful and amazing value hostel in centre of town”

This hostel/hotel is fantastic value for money. The location is right in the centre of the fort, 10 minutes walk from the station and easy to get around. The design is very classic, chic and high quality. The lobby area is great for chilling and working, with many tables, sofas and plug outlets and free tea, coffee and water. The dorm room is good quality and the bed is comfy. Breakfast is fantastic and in a beautiful setting on the roof, plus the staff are so attentive and friendly! You really feel like you’re staying somewhere very expensive!

Decent hotel walking distance to Colombo Fort Station”

1. Hotel: Location is up an small inner road so was difficult to find at night. Nice lobby area. One of the good things about the hotel was that it is about 5 to 10 mins walk away from Colombo Fort Station and the Pettah Market. 2. Room: Not exactly the cleanest but would suffice for an overnight stay. One thing to note is that most of the rooms face a common walkway i.e. to say if your blinds are not properly covered, someone can see into the room / bathroom. 3. Food - Had the breakfast up on the room of the hotel which was excellent. Great view and gave off a nice cozy vibe. However, as with every other Sri Lankan hotel, breakfast is the usual eggs, fruits and bread only. Nothing to shout about. 4. Service - Friendly staffs
