The Renuka Hotel is an unapologetically traditional, mid-range hotel in central Colombo with a loyal clientele and a reliable reputation. It has modern facilities that will suit those looking to spend a couple of value-driven days in the capital at the beginning or end of their holiday in Sri Lanka. The Renuka’s Palmyrah restaurant is one of Colombo’s most popular Sri Lankan restaurants and serves up sumptuous curries along with hoppers, string hoppers and Thosai prepared according to traditional Jaffna recipes.

Why we like it
A proven best-budget hotel in traditional style which offers good quality rooms for the price.
The Renuka is centrally located on the Galle road and is close to many of Colombo's finest restaurants, shopping malls and nightspots in this compact, easily-explored city. Colombo is about one hour from the airport.
