Steeped in history Designed for comfort

Hotel Nippon

Hotel Nippon takes its place in history as one of the country’s first 5 hotels. Built during the colonial era, this Heritage property is protected by the Archaeological Department of Sri Lanka and the Urban Development Authority.
While the façade of the beautiful colonial property remains lovingly preserved, this independently run city hotel has been fully, and elegantly renovated and refurbished with a 4 Star level rating.


In an age where time and access are paramount, Hotel Nippon’s location is one of its biggest advantages. Set in the very heart of the city, the hotel makes an ideal base for any traveler.
