It was perfect. Prithiva cannot be more nice than she is. She showed us the city, she brought us to the money exchange office in the very urgent moment, she did everything to make our stay great. She is an interesting, attentive, vivid person. The apartment is very nice, one can enjoy just observing so many details in it, in every corner of the place. Its location is convenient, you can go by foot to many important places or take tuk-tuk for cheap price. And not to forget, breakfasts are extraordinary! If you want to enjoy Colombo, just go to the Prithiva's place.

This was our visit to Colombo and we are glad that we chose Prithiva's studio for our introduction to the city and Sri Lanka. Our flight came in pretty late at night and by the time we reached Prithiva's place it was in the early hours of the morning. We were plesantly surprised to see her waiting for us at that hour. She even prepared a meal for us but we were a little to tired to eat or drink and proceeded to go straight to bed. I am sure she was a little disappointed. Her studio was very clean, cozy and comfortable. We were booked for three nights and her studio was definitely one of the best we have stayed in the the places we have visited. The location was fantastic and in close proximity to all the interesting places and sights in Colombo. Every morning she lovingly prepared a delicous breakfast spread and took the the trouble of advising us on places to visit in Sri Lanka. On our last night she drove us around to see interesting sights in the city of Colombo and introduced us to the Dutch Union Club for a delightful dinner. Prithiva made our stay in Colombo very comfortable and pleasant. We found her studio extremely delightful and we will be happy to recommend it to our friendss and associates who may want to visit Colombo.

Our one-month trip ended beautifully in Prithiva's comfortable, gorgeously decorated and well-equipped room. The size of the room is perfect. We especially appreciated the love seat for reading, the desk and chair for computer work and writing, the kitchenette, the little tables for luggage and the best shower in Sri Lanka. The communication was quick and clear. Privitha was so caring, sharp on recommendations and very flexible on checkout time. Our flight was in the evening and we were able to come back to the room for a quick shower to look fresh for the 27-hour journey back to Canada. I must not forget to comment on the breakfast, what a breakfast! It was a feast for the eyes, soul and tummy. The mix of local (roti, curry and fruit juice) and western (toast, omelet, jam, fruit and yogurt...) was marvellous. We never had such an elaborate and nutritious breakfast during one month. Although the others were very good and many excellent, Prithiva's was beyond. The location is very good. We took tuktuk everywhere for between 100 Rs to 250 Rs. The Geoffrey Bawa House "Number 11" is a must-see for those who are interested in Sri Lanka's most famous architect's residence and office. It is just around the corner from Prithiva's. The nearby Gallery Cafe, also designed by Geoffrey Bawa, is a beautiful place to unwind for a delicious meal (Sri Lanka and western) or a drink. Tea Board is also within walking distance. We highly recommend Prithiva's room to anyone who looks for the incredible hospitality. You won't be disappointed.

Prithiva was the most wonderful host from start to finish. She was in touch with me as soon as I made my booking, gave me lots of information on the area, answered any questions and offering help. The apartment is ideal for 2 and exactly as described. A small cooking area / fridge, en suite bathroom, seating area and bed, clean and nicely decorated. The apartment sits at the end of Prithiva's home and she welcomed us into there for a fantastic Sri Lanka breakfast, all homemade and the table beautifully decorated. The area is residential and was very quiet, yet just a short taxi ride up to the fort area for a few GB pounds. Prithiva even dropped us off at a local restaurant when we arrived late evening and was so helpful throughout our short stay. A great place to base yourself if in the city and experience true Sri Lankan hospitality.
