The Ceylonica Beach Hotel is in the tourist center of Negombo Lewis Place. From Central Station, it costs about 150 RS by tuk tuk to reach it. They offer rooms without AC, but in August it was not necessary, it was a little more than 20 degrees at night, but with a fan over the sea breeze, it was enough. The rooms are simple and cost from 700 RS, ie about 5 euros per night for a double room. Some share a bathroom while others have a private bathroom. The hotel is organized around a small green garden that is very well maintained and where, if you ask in advance, you can eat your breakfast and dinner.
