The apartment is spacious, but only bedroom has AC, so we only stayed in the bedroom because it's really hot in Colombo. It is an office building converted into a apartment. So there is basically no kitchen. We tried to cook, but the kitchenware is not clean, so we gave up. The bedroom is clean. The location is good, right next to crestcat shopping mall, so getting food is not a problem. Galle road is a really busy road, and windows are not soundproof. So it's a problem for light sleepers.

I had a wonderful stay at Arosha's, of course the location was great everything was in walking distance. There was always security which made me feel so comfortable leaving my belongings at the apartment and coming back to the apartment at night. Taxis were available all the time, and spa ceylon was in walking distance as well. Unfortunately I did not have the time to go walking on the beach but I had a great view at a distance. Arosha was always there to respond to any questions that I had and she was a great host. The apartment was as described in the listing. The space was more than enough for one person or two. I will be visiting this place again when I am back.

Good location, spacious place and good pre-visit communication from the host. However, there were a few issues once we arrived. We were shown in by a security guard who didn't leave until we gave him money, and he asked us for more when we checked out. The apartment is a converted office and thus feels a bit too big and has a very odd lay out. It has huge windows either end which make it unbearably hot and the air conditioning was limited to the bedroom area. This had two singles with hard mattresses pushed together rather than a double bed as we were expecting. The photos on this listing show rooms that are not in this apartment. The kitchen was inadequate with one electric hob ring and a microwave. All the utensils and plates were dirty and ants had made their way in despite it being on the second floor. Overall this is cheap for Colombo accommodation, but it is not good value for money or comfortable as a place to stay.

Response from Arosha:
This is an apartment and not a hotel or hostel, hence guests are responsible for their own luggage. Where we can help, we do, but it is not obligatory at all. Hence guests can also appreciate this if they wish. The apartment is always cleaned thoroughly but this is the tropics and insects do exist especially if windows are left wide open. The flat is 4 times the size of a mere hotel room and there is a 5 star hotel within 20 metres. A hotel room in this 5 star hotel sells at usd 140. So it doesn't take much brains to work out the huge value of space that you are getting. The beds have 5 star mattresses and are very comfortable. The kitchen is small and that has been clearly stated in the description. Guests who come to the tropics and developing countries from Europe should try to understand the community and eco systems. Then they may also appreciate their holidays more!
