Clean rooms, may not be in the most picturesque location (but Colombo isn't really that pretty in general), but it's very central, clean rooms and superfriendly and very helpful staff. All rooms are located towards the back of the building, which is crucial as the front of the bulding is facing a very busy crossroad in Fort.

Very good location if you are planning to take a train or bus trip from Colombo in the morning - a few minutes walk to Colombo Fort Station and Pettah shopping district and a few minutes more to Bastian Mawatha bus station. Rooms small but clean and quiet, bathroom small, built into the room. The hotel offers an airport shuttle...

Very good hotel for a short stay .. we spent the night here just for our early morning flight next day .. Good location .. though it is right on Main Street .. it's difficult little to park your car and take out luggage etc. Overall the rooms are nice ... and decent place for a short stay ..

This is a good value budget pick. The rooms are furnished in a basic style but clean and tidy and soundproof. if you want to stay near all the major sites at a good price then give it a go. Friendly staff to help you on your way.

The room size was allright, and the attached bathroom had towels and a piece of soap. I don't remember there being a cupboard or hooks/hangers to hang our clothes in the room though. I guess for a 1-night stay, and if you want proximity to the Fort Railway Station, City Beds is a good option although the price was not...

Hi SpicyOlio thank you for the lovely review and highlighting a few things =) All our rooms have hooks and areas to keep and hang clothes, they are right behind the door. Sorry that this was not visible to you. The reason we don't do brekky is because we do not have a kitchen and do not cook any meals....

Basic rooms but excellent location! Sound proof as near train line but was quiet. Helpful staff. Would stay again. Clean shower with good pressure. Clean comfy bed. Walking distance from train station, world trade centre and old Dutch hospital

The hotel is very well located. the staff is really friendly and they welcomed us in the best way possible, providing all info we needed for our 1-day stay in the structure.

City Beds The Regent is in a good location a few minutes walk from Fort Station and the Fort area of Colombo.
