  • Gayathri is a really nice host with lots of experience with people world wide. Nevertheless she is still interested in people and good conversation to support at the first steps on Sri Lanka island. Her husband is a nice person too, unfortunately we had not enough possibilities to meet each other. We lived in the charming room for 3 days, which was quite good. However there is some space for improvement due to cleanliness. Positive is surely the quiet area where the room is located comparing to the noises in the capital Colombo generally. It is a good point to start discovering the city. We can recommend that place as also the family. Thank you from the north German couple, Tina and Dirk

  • Nice looking room, clean, own bathroom. We felt welcome and enjoyed our stay there. House in quiet neighborhood. Easily to go to downtown by Tuk Tuk. We recommend this place.

    Lisa2013-12-14T00:00:00Z
  • Gayathri's place in colombo is a calm oasis in what is a busy and vibrant city. the location is great so central and yet far enough away from the major streets. Gayathri is a very knowledgeable and helpful host and has a wealth of great ideas for things to do and where to go the room is beautiful and so much to read in the library too. I had a wonderful time and am already looking forward to coming back again

    Mohan2014-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • We spend our first night in Sri Lanka with Gayathri in a lovely little studio in Colombo before heading south. The room is clean and private. It is on the first floor and the lovely breakfast is served downstairs. The neighbour is safe and it is easy to get anywhere in Colombo from the house in a tuktuk. They are extremely nice and helpful and we look forward to visiting them again soon.

  • I booked Channa’s place for my parents who were visiting Colombo. They said: “Channa and his family are truly wonderful. They were very kind and very hospitable! The apartment was beautiful and perfectly clean. Every morning they prepared a delicious traditional breakfast. While being in the heart of Colombo, Channa’s place is a peaceful escape.” They highly recommend it to me! Therefor I highly recommend it to you! Thank you Channa and family.

    Helen2017-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • Channa was a great host and the perfect start for our journey through sri lanka. We will definietly come back here, when we are again in colombo. Thank you for the tipps and the nice fruit juice! :)

    Johannes2017-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • Channa and his wife were graceful hosts and we really enjoyed our stay at their lovely apartment. The place is located conveniently closer to central Colombo, but hidden away in a serene setting. There are number of restaurants/ coffee shops/ supermarkets and local attractions in the surrounding area and Channa gave us useful tips to navigate the city. The apartment looked even better than the pictures and the aesthetically pleasing interior decor definitely reflected Channa's creativity as an artist. The description in the listing appears accurate and all the basic amenities were available for our use. Channa and his wife prepared the most delicious local breakfast meals, which exceeded our expectations even as two Sri Lankan travelers. We checked out quite early and they were kind enough to prepare our breakfast by 6.45 am. We would not hesitate to recommend Channa's cozy hideout to any couple/ individual exploring Colombo. The apartment is surrounded by vegetation which adds a lovely ambiance. However, it would be wise to carry a mosquito repellent with you. Finally, do take time to go upstairs and check out Channa's unique paintings and have a chat with him. We found that to be quite an interesting experience.

    Tharindu2017-05-01T00:00:00Z
  • What a great stay! It was truly an exceptional experience bundled with true Sri Lankan hospitality. I fully agree with all the reviews written above about "Wooden Gate." My stay started in the early morning hours with Channa's warm welcome followed by a tasty cup of Ceylon tea prepared by Channa’s beautiful wife, Udyoga. A little chat with Channa in his beautiful house for a couple of minutes while I enjoyed my cup of tea gave me the exact feeling about how pleasant my stay is going to be with them. It was such a pleasant experience for me to wake up every morning to the sounds of birds singing. What a great way to begin the day. Then came Udyoga’s carefully prepared delicious and mouthwatering breakfast which I looked forward to every morning. A Sri Lankan breakfast at its best! Having such a delicious breakfast in their lovely decorated house overlooking the shady garden was even more relaxing!! The cool breeze constantly crossing through the house felt as if I was in the hill country. “Wooden Gate” is a perfect peaceful and a relaxing hideaway within busy Colombo, and gives easy access to all major supermarkets, restaurants, public transport within walking distance. The bed room was my favorite place! The charming big bed room which opens up to the court yard was such a relaxing place to rest. It gives you the opportunity to read a book while in bed looking at colorful flowers, lush green trees and even the sky. Often, your eyes will be treated with pleasant sights of different birds visiting the garden to treat themselves with fruits. Don’t be surprised if you get distracted with your reading because the sight is such a pleasant one which you would not want to miss!! Such a treat! A total spa, especially to eyes and mind! Oh…what about the bathroom?? While you have your shower in that spotless clean bathroom, it also allows you even to enjoy your shower looking at trees and the sky. The parrot who discovered the star fruit tree near the bathroom, visited most of the mornings to have his morning fruit treat and I was very lucky because I got to watch him enjoying his meal while I have my shower! Channa is a professional artist and I even got to improve my painting skills! He very kindly allowed me to use his oil paints and also provided me with a free stretched canvas to do my painting. Overall, it was a memorable stay! I truly felt as if I am with my own family. They were very much willing to help me at all times because they wanted to make sure that my stay with them is a memorable and a comfortable one. I must say that they went beyond and above to make it happen and it was beyond my expectations. I am so happy that I chose "Wooden Gate" to stay during my vacation in Colombo. Channa and Udyoga both...

    Feruza2017-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • Let me finish the rest of my review.... Channa and Udyoga both were exceptionally excellent hosts and I will not hesitate a moment to recommend “Wooden Gate” to anyone, be either for business or for vacation trips. In addition, the friendliness, kindness and sincere willingness to help at all times nature added even more value and light to my stay with them. I enjoyed every bit of my stay with them and in their beautiful and clean house, from day one until the last second of my departure! I just wanted to stay more !! Hopefully next time :-) Thank you Channa, Udyoga and kids for making me feel at home. I will definitely come back soon.

    Feruza2017-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • I have been traveling Asia for 4 years, and have never met someone as kind & gracious as Channa. My stay at his beautiful home was truly a highlight of my time in Asia. He and his family went above and beyond in every way. Channa helped me plan the remainder of my travels through Sri Lanka. He gave me an amazing tour of his garden, teaching me so much along the way. His wife and daughters are the sweetest, and I'm so grateful for the time I was able to spend with them. Lovely experience and I hope to be able to stay with them again someday!

    Andrea2017-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Channa's charming and colorful annex is a surprising retreat nestled away from the busy Ethul Kotte area. You feel as if you have been transported to a rainforest from the moment you step inside the gate to his home. I stayed at Channa's residence for a month while I was in Sri Lanka doing research, and it was just the kind of place I needed to come and relax after a day of running around Colombo. The nearby trees and architectural breezeway keep the place cool, especially at night. The kitchen was suitable for cooking small meals, and I used it seamlessly every day (the gas burner makes cooking easy). I loved the little built in library. Channa has a collection of interesting books on everything from traveling through Sri Lanka to religious texts to indigenous wildlife. I found great pleasure in reading a new Sri Lankan folk tale every night. Channa was also extremely helpful in assisting me with travel plans. He informed me about local bus routes and helped me plan a trip around the cultural triangle. The neighborhood itself is absolutely wonderful. Within 5 minutes walking distance you can get to a few different bus halts, numerous restaurants, grocery stores (i.e. Food City and Laugfs), and coffee shops (i.e. Barista, Cafe One, and HeBrews). I really liked having a tailor and laundry service directly across the street from the road where Channa's place is located. I even had 3 custom tailored shirts made! One of my favorite memories from staying at Channa's place was looking up at the sky at night while I was washing off the heat and dust from a day in Colombo from inside the shower, and beholding the full moon during Poya. It was truly magical. As a final note, I'd like to mention the extensive breakfast I was served every single day. I got to try such an outstanding assortment of roti, dhal, gram, milk rice, hoppers, curry, and fruits, and I never started the day off hungry. It was a terrific way to sample Sri Lankan food without ever having to leave the comfort of Channa's jewel tone blue annex. In short, Channa and his wife are such kind spirits and gracious hosts, and I will be sure to come back and stay next time I have the chance!

    Josh2017-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • Channa's place is a nice hide-away from the busy road of Colombo. He knows what guests need and provides everything from a good lokal breakfast to some free snacks. In the fully equiped kitchen you could even cook your owne meals. The clean rooms invited us to stay longer and we felt very comfortable. Channa and his family were very nice and helpfull. The bus stand is just some minutes away and Diyatha Uyana recreation area almost round the corner. Book it!

  • I have to say, what a beautiful home! I pretty much woke up in a tropical dream every morning during my stay. Nice setting and gorgeous breakfast, french window to the garden, what's more beautiful is the warm hosts! Chitrupa was very helpful and patient with me to plan my trips and sort out the transportation. Local is good too, in a quiet nice neighborhood and walk distance to main street. Very pleasant stay!

  • We miss our chance to cause our schedule changed,it's a pity,I hope if I can maybe next time l come to Sri Lanka I will come to see.

    Victor2015-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • Chitrupa is a super nice host, a friendly and patient gentleman. He always replied me on airbnb before we checked in, and drove us to a supermarket nearby right after we arrived. I would surely recommend Chitrupa and his house to my friends who will visit Colombo.

    O8ile2016-06-11T00:00:00Z
  • Mr Chitrupa was so nice!! Our flight was late and he still choose to pick us up at the airport. The breakfast next day was fantastic, and he also drove us to the train station and bought ticket for us. You guys have to pick this place! I wont hesitate to choose here if I go to Colombo again.

    JUN2016-05-24T00:00:00Z
  • A very lovely house. The first sight we saw the house, we love it. And there are two cute dogs in the house. When we finished our breakfast, we play with them. Our house host Chitrupa is a very kind and friendly man, he drove us to the restaurant for dinner and then waiting for us to take us back. Also his family members are very nice person. If you don't have a driver, Chitrupa will also recommend you a nice young handsome driver to play around Colombo. There is no doubt that I will recommend this house to my friends. The next time I come to Colombo, I will still choose to live in this house. Believe me, it will be the right choice to stay in this house. Wish you a pleasant holiday.

    Janet2017-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • The hosts were very friendly, and made me feel very comfortable.

    Vani2016-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • It is a very beautiful house. We're really impressed by the collections that they have. Chitrupa and his mother are super nice host that give us lots of help and caring. We will definitely recommend this place to our friends who plan to visit Colombo. 感谢奶奶和Chitrupa两天来对我们的照顾,这个房子很漂亮,很复古,奶奶周游世界的收藏品摆了好几个柜子,十分震撼。他们总是微笑着给我提供各种各样的帮助,奶奶年纪那么大了依然给我们倒茶什么的,令我们很过意不去也十分感动。

    Ying2016-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • I don’t know how many thanks I shall say to Chitrupa and his mother. When they got to know I missed my flight back to China, Chitrupa himself picked me up from Negombo and they provided me a free night accommodation. How lucky and how grateful I felt I could meet them!! I think this is the destiny I have chance to stay one more day in Sri Lanka, to stay with Chitrupa’s family. In my stay, I have met his two sisters. So they said I have met all the family members. They regarded me as one of family members and I regarded them too. This house likes my home in Sri Lanka. This villa is as described, like a garden house, decorated with many souvenirs from all over the world. All these souvenirs are collected by Chitrupa’s mother. I enjoyed a very nice chat with them, listening the family’s background and history. It’s no wonder that their house is recommended in the most popular travel guide book Lonely Planet. There are two bedrooms in the house. And I had the honor to experience each of them. Each room is deluxe decorated in typical British rural style. Even the bathroom is grand decorated also. This is the most refined house I have stayed in Sri Lanka. And the breakfast they prepared is different every day. You can have a hearty western or Sri Lanka breakfast with them. How kind of them that they always invited me to enjoy the meal with them together. And I can’t refuse the yummy food every time: ) If you have the chance to stay with them, you must be deeply impressed by their warmth.

    Allen2017-06-12T00:00:00Z
  • I booked my stay while I was in the airport because I just found out about airbnb and took a chance as opposed to going through normal hotel channels. Camillo responded very quickly and had help that spoke the language to guide my cab driver there. Upon arrival I was promptly greeted, shown around, provided water and my host was gracious enough to share a beer with me . The place is very nice and updated with a little renovation going on. There were cameras at the gate entrance and each floor so safety was not an issue. The place was very quiet and my room looked just as advertised in the pictures with a nice view up the road and beautiful sunrise every morning. A/C worked very well and so did the fan. Wifi had good strength throughout. The beach is very close just at the bottom of the road and there are at least 2 restaurants near it and 1 on the way. Everything is walking distance so just up on the main road there is a grocer and pharmacy as well is Italian and local food choices. ATM's very close but whatever you do, do not attempt to use HNB ATM's to pull cash using a foreign credit card, it will take your card and not give you your money. This happened to me twice. Camillo was extremely helpful in helping me plan excursions, local do's and don'ts, restaurant suggestions and provided a general lay of the land. Tuk-tuk drivers are found right at the intersection of the street near the gate to the property. Cons: -No Microwave, but food is so inexpensive you can eat out everyday and not need to reheat -Refrigerator was full and not much space but wasn't too big of a deal -Fresh towels provision could have been a little better organized but available upon request.

  • Black Cat is a great place in Colombo. Affordable rates but inspiring design, clean rooms and well maintained and staffed building. Hosts were great and helpful and super friendly. Cafe downstairs is a real treat and has the high standard of Melbourne cafe eats/drinks/service and aesthetic. happy to recommend to any type of stay. But as somewhere on way in/out of Colombo it is a great alternative to the usual run of the mill hotels at negombo. This place has heart.

  • We had a great time in the Black Cat! Its one of those rare places were you feel at home right away. Soharni, Youssef and the cats gave us a warm welcome (including great coffee). It is a new place with all the potential of become great and bussy so we felt lucky to discover them at this moment. The room is spaces, clean and beautiful decorated. The cafe is a bonus if you like good coffee and sandwiches. Youssef gave us great tips of things to do and places to eat, and helped us out when we needed a doctor. And the cats...well you just want to put them in your suitcase and take them home :) So to sum it up: five stars and highly recommended!!

  • Black Cat is a nice B&B in the scenic quarter of Colombo 7. Prices are moderate, not really cheap compared to the overall level of Colombo. No room service (if this is important for you). Would come back but would also consider to test another place.

    Dirk2017-05-07T00:00:00Z
  • Great B&B. Everything was as described and shown in the pictures. A lovely neighbourhood with a short tuk tuk ride into town

  • We had a fantastic stay at Black Cat, and Soharni was so helpful right from point of enquiry all the way through to booking our airport taxi for our departure, couldn't have done more to help. Even allowed us a late check out so we could grab a shower before our long haul evening flight. The room was gorgeous, impeccably clean and the rain shower was amazing! Loved all the attention to detail and stylish interior & assessories. Location in colombo was super handy too, and the cafe downstairs served epic coffee & delicious treats! Will definitely be back!

    Hannah2016-07-19T00:00:00Z
  • It's about time we wrote a review for Black Cat B&B our home away from home in Colombo. Our family of four (parents and twin four year old girls) have been staying at this little oasis on and off for about three months and we love it. There is attention to detail in the whole building, which is a charming old mansion, such as the attractive Singer sewing machine tables in the bathroom. The rooms are stylish, minimalist and clean with very comfortable beds, excellent ensuite bathrooms with a rain shower head, and a refreshing cool air con and fan making it a welcome respite from the heat of Colombo. Soharni, Youseff and their staff are warm and helpful. They answer all our questions and accommodate all our needs such as arranging two mattresses for the children. The well appointed rooms are cleaned daily. It is a great base in Colombo for us because it is walking distance from Colombo's best children's park, as well as lots a fantastic shopping and cafes. The neighbourhood has a lot of embassies and historical buildings and feels safe to walk around. Then of course there is Black Cat Café which gives us our coffee fix in the land of tea, along with delicious food and refreshing homemade cold drinks. Our girls love going down to the bookshop and reading the Tintin books. And I can't forget the two black kittens and Momo. Playing with them is the highlight of our girls' visit to Colombo every time. We haven't been able to find any other place in Colombo that ticks all these boxes at such a good price. You'll find yourself in luck at Black Cat B&B.

  • We loved staying at the Black Cat B&B - beautifully decorated, spacious and bright rooms in an old colonial house in a great neighborhood in Colombo. The location is perfect - central and nearby to anything we needed. The staff are also so welcoming and accommodating: Roy was super helpful with directions and recommendations, and Youseff gave great travel advice for our trip outside of the city. The Black Cat cafe downstairs serves delicious food and coffee. I highly recommend Black Cat to anyone looking for a temporary home away from home in Colombo!

  • A little piece of heaven perfectly located in the heart of Colombo 7, with loads to do within walking distance. The house is beautifully decorated and the room very clean and charming, exactly as it is described. Youssef was very helpful in giving us tips and showing us the neighbourhood, booking driver to the airport and taking the time for a nice chat. Plus the cafe downstairs is a great place to hang out, in addition to the very good coffee and breakfast, lovely local staff. Highly recommended !

  • We had a lovely stay at Black Cat, the perfect end to our visit to Sri Lanka. Soharni and Youssef gave us a really warm welcome to their beautiful b&b, recommending us great restaurants and shops and organising our transport to the airport. We would really recommend a stay here, its a beautiful space with a fantastic location and charming hosts.

    Clare2016-05-16T00:00:00Z
  • The cafe downstairs is nice and the staff is really helpful, it's a good place to stay for a night, before moving on. Some nice restaurants in walking distance and the train station 10 min by car, if there's no traffic.

    Friederike2017-05-27T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place! Great location, lovely decoration and nice and quiet. We were the only guests during our 1 night stay and they were generous to let us check out a little later and shower before heading to the airport. Don't forget to say hello to the friendly 3-legged dog!

    Jon2017-04-17T00:00:00Z
  • Great BnB in the most developed part of Colombo. The cafe had pretty much the only good coffee we had in our 14 days across Sri Lanka and the food was perfect post flight. Close to Viharamahadevi park which was nice to walk around. Spacious rooms and bathrooms with simple but nice furniture. Hosts are great and really helpful / honest about what to do / see.

    Simon2016-10-30T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay here, the owner is lovely and the staff very welcoming and friendly. Comfortable and clean rooms and super hip decor. The coffee from the cafe is incredible, I might be addicted now ;)

    Joe2017-05-29T00:00:00Z
  • Youssef was a fantastic host. He was great at replying and went out of his way to help us with a query about the trains before we arrived, which was so appreciated! He was full of great advice and useful information, and he took the time to sit down with us the first morning to give us tips. Warm, friendly and helpful host. The room was large and clean, the bathroom has great modcons inc rain-style shower. Huge and comfy bed, and powerful air con - which was needed! The cafe downstairs sells lovely food, smoothies and grilled sandwiches - yum! They could probably chuck another dairy-free item on there for good measure, but we had no problems ordering tasty food. The location is good if you don't mind jumping on tuktuks to the centre (don't let them charge you more than 300 LKR), but too far to walk to the beach or railway station... in the midday heat anyway! All in all a good stay in Colombo which was a passing through point for our travels! Thanks everyone - Emma and Michelle

  • The BlackCat is a really nice place to stay in Colombo. It is situated very central and the colonial style of the blackcat is awesome. We really got some very good tips from Alex about places to visit and nice restaurants!

  • We had a great stay at Nelun's apartment. Looked exactly like the pictures!!

    Alice2016-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • Borella is a residential suburb but there are no restaurants within walking distance, everything is accessed by Tuktuk. The apartment and food are good and secure thanks to Lani, the housekeeper. However, in the dry season the smell of the canal can get bad and the mosquitos were deet-resistant. We got badly bitten.

    Sheena2016-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • This is a comfortable homestay in a quiet area. We caught took to ok'd everywhere which increased accessibility but it is a distance from the town centre. The accommodation is comfortable and pleasing and we were well support by the host. Highly recommended.

    Jennifer and Joseph2016-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • Nelun's place is lovely, the pool was great as it was so hot. We were given a lovely breakfast too by Nelun's house keeper who lives at the premises. Not many restaurants within walking distance is the only downfall but other than that it was a nice stay there.

    Cassandra 2017-06-23T00:00:00Z
  • Having stayed in a hotel on a previous trip to Colombo I definitely recommend staying at Nelun's place instead! Nelun's place really feels like a home, the design is beautiful and airy. Getting around is easy via tuk tuk, just have the proper pronunciation of Gothami Road for when you need to return home. Chandra, Nelun's housekeeper is so lovely and always there to help. She also made us a beautiful breakfast every morning. Thanks for having us.

    Soojee2016-08-23T00:00:00Z

    Ivana2017-07-15T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at The Cube was very nice! The room was really clean and the interior design was modern. Nelun made us a very good breakfast and was helpful in any way. A really nice touch is the pool upstairs, which you can use at any time of the day or night. A little disadvantage was the loud neighborhood at night. We would definitely recommend to stay at The Cube.

  • Nelun has been an amazing host. We really enjoyed staying at her home and the chats we had with her and her family. The flat is nicely located off the busy city centre to relax yet close enough to quickly go there by tuk tuk and experience Colombo and all it has to offer. Nelun is a fashion designer and even designed a custom scarf for my girlfriend! The fresh juices in the morning with scrambled eggs and some local delicacies were a pleasure for our palate. Definitely recommend going there.

    Daniel & Katja2014-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Nelun's warm and hospitable ways are evident well before one arrives through her offers to help you in so many ways. But unfortunately she had to leave before i arrived and I was left in the able care of her husband Luxshman and staff Nimali who made the stay comfortable. The room is large with a high roof as is the bathroom. One cannot miss the fact you are in a creative environment with art and antiques strewn about lavishly. The bed was one of the best i have slept in since i love firm beds and the linen is gorgeous however this was just the room for this trip two short overnight stays and I am sure i did miss a lot with the hostess being away. Borella is interesting with the Temple close by you hear chants clearly in the bathroom (new experience) and easy to find places to eat close by. The one breakfast I had was sumptuous.

    Monu2014-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing place to stay and what amazing hosts as well. As soon as we arrived we were made to feel at home and part of the family. We were looked after so well and it felt a home from home. Thank you so much for letting us stay on your beautiful warm and friendly home what a great way to start our tip to Sri Lanka

    Chris2013-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • I stay in Nelune one night i wanted to rest in colombo in warm and charming room before my big trip around sri lanka. Nelune guest house was the perfect place. I Never see her but she managed everything even with a my flight delay. Thank you again Nelune. Hope to see you one day:)

    mounia2014-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely house and spacious room. Breakfast was good too. Kind host.

    Jenny2013-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • I had a lovely stay. Unfortunately Nelum wasn't there but Alexos was in charge And could answer and help me with all my questions! Thanks to him again! The room and bathroom are as nice as they are in the fotos! Very cosy and a lot of taste! Also the open living room is wonderful to sit in and relax. As I just came from a 15 days trip through Sri Lanka I was happy to have a place to spend some time to think about all the different nice and new impressions. The breakfast was very tasty and typical Sri Lankan style, but if you prefer more continental bf you also could get it. The taxi to the airport that Alexos organized has cost me 2250 Rs plus 300 Rs if you like for the faster motorway. It tooks me 45 min with the fast motorway on a Tuesday morning. The staff which are working in the house were very friendly and helpful at every time! The area where the house is based is quiet area and as mention it is not in the real city center but you can easily go by tuktuk everywhere. The communication before was good and there were no problems at all! I really recommend this place. Thank you again, a very merry Christmas and a happy new year!

  • Nelun's home was beautiful with an open floor plan and open air spaces in the common area. The room was very clean and comfortable as was the bathroom. Her housekeeper greeted us with iced tea and was very attentive to our needs while we were there. Nelun was very kind and generous enough to give us a ride for an errand we needed to run. To our surprise, we were offered a delicious breakfast the morning of our departure. We highly recommend this home stay.

    Jenn2012-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • Amazingly artistic house, wonderful people, really great hospitality. Unfortunately, the room was the hottest in over 2 weeks Sri Lanka - no air flow and very stuffy, despite fans. Nelun warned us very kindly of the dog breaking into our room, but it was unavoidable and we had to get up and chase her out twice at night - she hides under the bed. Lots of noise meant the night was restless and we were up every hour, despite the really lovely host and friendly people serving us breakfast. Place was amazing - sleep not so much.

  • Jay and his wife are very professional in looking after my needs. Organised a driver for me to travel some good parts of Sri Lanka . I enjoyed my one night in Jay's house in Colombo very much . The house was super clean and tidy and very quiet.

    Russell2014-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • We were disappointed at first as the location shown by Airbnb was incorrect... The house is not located close to the rail station but a 25 min drive from there... It was ok in the end but we had to take a driver to get there. Really nice house, really clean, nice neighborhood Jay and his wife are lovely people. As the room does not have AC but just a fan it was a bit hot.

    Ondine2014-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • It was really great to stay at Jay's house! Jay and his wife are a great couple always ready to help and giving great advices on Colombo and Sri Lanka. Jay organised our transfer from the airport which was very helpful. It was a pleasure to arrive the first day at this welcoming house and felt like arriving at a friend's place. Hoping to be back one day !

    Nicolas2013-12-17T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation was fine but at 27 euros a night it was expensive for Sri Lanka. Also, the place is far away from the city of Colombo. When you add the extra time and expense of getting into the city, I would doubt if I would stay there again. Colombo itself is a noisy and polluted city and the ride into the city in a three-wheeler vehicle often involved a one-hour struggle through heavy traffic and a lot of air pollution. And an hour to get back again.

    Graham2014-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • Jays place is about a 25 minutes tuk tuk ride from the City center. Jay was a very nice and helpful host and the room was clean and spacious.

  • Jay and his wife were nice hosts and Jay was prompt with responses to any questions I had before the trip. Directions to his place were clear and we were able to get there easily. On Jay's suggestion, we tried the Chicken Kottu at the club nearby, it was the best we had in SL. The place was clean, comfortable and located in a nice residential area.

    Koshini2015-05-17T00:00:00Z
  • We arrived in Sri Lanka early hours of the morning where we met Jay and his lovely wife. They were extremely hospitable, friendly and helpful. He talked to us for hours about Sri Lanka and gave us advice on where to go from Colombo. Their home is beautiful and clean. Jay arranged a tuk tuk to visit Mt.lavinia for the day which was superb! Amazing hosts to start off our trip!

    Bianca2015-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • When me and my boyfriend arrived in Colombo we already had high expectations because of all the good reviews we had read about this place. Jay and his wife surpassed all of them! They were the friendliest and most helpful hosts we have ever had. Not only were they willing to help us with all of our questions but they also came up with brilliant suggestions for places to visit and things to do that totally made our trip better. Their home is cosy, really clean, with a lovely garden and in a quiet area. The homemade breakfast is delicious and prepared for whatever time you like. Jay has great experience as a host and could provide you with some priceless advice about your stay.

  • An excellent place and a excellent host !!! We stayed here twice on are trip, once at the start and again and the end and we our glad we did !!! Our favourite place to stay on the whole trip. Very homely and welcoming feel to the place. As Benjamin would say "home as home" Benjamin was very helpful with helping us work out taxi's and public transport, plus he recommended great places to eat as well. 10/10 on all levels !!! Would highly recommend staying here to anyone !!!

Benjamin's parents were just as welcoming as he, and we knew we could ask them for anything we needed and they would help us out. The air conditioning was perfect to battle the heat, and the surroundings were beautiful to wake up to. The wifi did not connect properly upstairs but we were able to use it downstairs so that was no problem :) thankyou!

His wife and mother went out of their way to provide us with delicious Sri Lankan breakfast, early in the morning. And the room itself is very comfortable and very peaceful. We loved staying here and would definitely come back.

    Madhura2015-11-16T00:00:00Z
  • Benjamin is a great host and made us feel really welcome. The place is exactly how the photos and description portray. Benjamin went out of his way to help us with local intel. His wife even made delicious milk rice for us for breakfast. All in all, I would really recommend this place!!

  • Benjamin is a very nice host. He patiently answered all my questions before i even checked in. He organised cab for us to be picked up at the airport and gave us all the necessary details about money exchange and local sim cards. The room is exactly as described in the listing. We had a wonderful stay. He provided us with information about places to visit in and around. I will definitely go back here for my next visit.

  • Great place in residential area Colombo 7. Arjuna and his family have a nice home, I enjoyed "the little townhouse" room, large bathroom and bed, the fan allows to sleep well. The decoration is nice as well. If you need some info, Arjuna and his family are here to help you.

  • I booked this lovely town house because of all the good words post in Airbnb. Before arriving and meeting Arjuna and Saluka, I doubted whether it's THAT good, but now I have no doubt, and it's even better. I love every breakfast and dinner prepared, so delicious! Also enjoy a lot talking with the sweet family. Even though it has been only 3 nights, I still feel grateful to the family for taking care of me during the stay.

    Lysa 2016-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • The Little Townhouse was the perfect place to stay while we were in Colombo. We actually stayed here both on our first night in Sri Lanka and our last before flying home. Communication with Arjuna before we arrived was great so we felt welcome before we even got there! When we did arrive, very hot and tired after a long journey from London, we were greeted by Saluka (and Lily!) and offered cold towels and ginger beer - just what we needed! Arjuna and Saluka's house is absolutely beautiful and in a really peaceful neighbourhood. We loved the comfortable room and the huge bathroom! Saluka also gave us a great tip about using the pool at Mount Lavinia so within a couple of hours of our arrival in Sri Lanka we were sipping cold drinks whilst looking out over the ocean - heaven! The only downside was that our time in Colombo was so short we didn't get a chance to sample any of Arjuna's cooking - maybe next time! Arjuna was also really helpful with planning onward travel, arranging our train tickets and taxis for us. When we returned after two weeks travelling around Sri Lanka it felt a little bit like coming home. Thanks for everything!

    Anna2016-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • Another great stay with Arjuna in Colombo. They made us feel most welcome again and provided us with more wonderful food for our dinner.

    Ruth2016-07-09T00:00:00Z
  • We had once again a lovely time at Arjuna's home, this time in a different room! The hosts were super nice and welcoming, breakfasts were very tasty and they helped me press and put on a saree for a wedding! We will definitely visit again :-)

    Marta2016-07-12T00:00:00Z
  • Arjuna and Salukha are wonderful hosts. I was travelling with my wife and we really loved the place. There were cold towels and a very welcome ginger beer when we arrived. The room was clean, comfortable with a spacious bathroom. The house is close to some fantastic eateries like The Commons Cafe and is easily accessible by tuk tuk from across the city. Above all Arjuna and Salukha provided some very valuable tips on places to visit in Colombo and things to do during the rest of the trip. The Sri-Lankan dinner was delicious. We loved the experience so much that we stayed here in the return leg of our Sri Lanka trip too!

  • Arjuna's place is really good, beautiful and quite. When we arrived, Arjuna serviced us some juice and cool tissue, which is really concerned! :) Also he introduced many good place nearby and give us a tourist map of Colombo. The facilities are very good, everything is great. We have a nice time in Arjuna's place, recommend to people who will visit Colombo

  • Only stay for one night and the place is okay with the beach just nearby. Took me less than a minute to reach the beach but be careful as you have to cross the railway. A vegetarian restaurant is within a walking distance just on the corner of main road. If using bus from Colombo Fort, take bus numb(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) to Dehiwala junction and cost me only 10rupee.

    Norjimah2014-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • Stay with Jonathan was our first in srilanka and it was amazing. Room was well furnished with all the basic amenities. It was like a homely experience. Beach is just 2 mins away from the home. Railway track is also nearby but not much of a disturbance. It is located in an hour drive from the airport. Cabs and tuk tuk are readily available. Jonathan also personally guided us with our itinerary. It was nice of him. Overall our stay was comfortable and nice. I would recommend if some body needs to stay away from the hustle bustle of the city life.

  • I had my best Airbnb experience yet at Jonathan's inn on Colombo beach! Jonathan and his family were very welcoming and extremely helpful. The place was clean and comfortable. I really have no complaints and the location was awesome too, just a few steps to the beach!! Thanks so much! If ever back in Colombo I would love to stay here again!

    Jessica2015-12-06T00:00:00Z
  • Jonathan was friendly and helpful with direction and other information. The place was clean and his mother gave us friendly welcome. The house has no sign on it and airbnb sends you to a different address. Just go to the 50 albert place and ring the bell. The view on the photo is not out of the studio which i have originally thought.

    Martin2017-05-15T00:00:00Z
  • we stayed one night at Jonathans place. Appartment is small and nice, with wifi connection. Kitchen equipment is simple, trains passing few meters behind the house whats not really relaxing. Communication perfect.

    Pajtáš2017-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • There was no remote for the A/C and no net, that we could open the window in the night. The bed was uncomfortable and in the rooms was a smell of mold. You could hear and feel every passing train. The positves was good wifi connection, towels, enough space in the apartment and a very friendly host.

  • Villa Raha is a magnificent old villa that accommodates a few people in double rooms. Stunning gardens and decor with very comfortable bed. Imrah and Luay are wonderful hosts and always keen to help out for advice or tips on where to go. If you enjoy seafood I highly recommend an evening meal at Seaspray restaurant in the Galle face Hotel, central Colombo.

    Joanna Rowe2017-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • Villa Raha was a great way to Spend our last night in Sri Lanka. Luay was a great host, greeting us on arrival and even helping to arrange delivery of some lunch as we arrived having not eaten! The room was perfect, very comfortable bed and the wifi / tv / netflix is a nice touch.

    Jack2017-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • This is the best Air B and B I've ever stayed at. Seriously luxurious with fantastic facilities. Imrah and Luay couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful. Can't wait to stay here again.

  • What a magical place to end our two weeks in Sri Lanka. The villa itself is magnificent. It's has all the contemporary features of modern living but still retains the heart of its colonial past. We also opted for the breakfast, which was great. Luay and Imrah are gracious hosts - we felt like we were part of their extended family! Warm, accommodating and have wonderful knowledge of Colombo so can give you tips on where to eat and go out etc. Perfect!

    Luke2017-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • What a stay! Imrah and Luay were extremely friendly and helpful. The room was incredible value; it was like staying in a 5* hotel. The bed was particularly comfortable! I'd recommend this for anyone who wants the informality of Airbnb with the quality of a hotel.

  • My girlfriend and I stayed at Mohamed's place for 2 nights. The place was amazing, everything was clean and exactly as what we see on the pictures. We will never forget this short stay. Mohamed is a great host, he did everything to make our stay very special. The best part about the place is that you can access a wonderful pool on the roof of the building. The pool is also very clean and has the perfect temperature. (It's on the 9th floor!!!) The Wifi worked pretty well and we had our own balcony. We would definitely recommend this place. Thank you Mohamed, you made our short stay in Colombo unforgettable!

    Axel2017-07-19T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay in Mohamed's was very relaxed and enjoyable, the rooftop pool was pure bliss.. and the apartment itself was clean and comfortable. It was the perfect stepping stone for our adventure in Sri Lanka!

  • I cannot recommend Mo's place highly enough. The room was spotless, spacious with fan and AC. Big shower with good water pressure in the en suite. Access to kitchen facilities and living space. Rooftop pool which looks out on to the beachfront was stunning. There is also gym facilities. Less than 1 min walk to the beach where there are lots of great places to eat and have drinks overlooking the sea. Really incredible value for money! Mo was a brilliant host who went out of his way to help us with various things including our airport transfer.

    Hannah2017-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • My wife and I had a great time staying here, Mohamed was an amazing host. He was flexible with us and accommodated our needs. Communication was almost instant response and the value was great. Highly recommended, thanks.

  • Great place. Few steps to the beach, or few levels higher to the pool on the roof with an awesome ocean view! Apartment is almost new and its realy nice and clean, there is also full kitchen and fridge, a/c everywhere, (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) chromecast on his Samsung smart TV.. Mohamed is realy easygoing and he always reply immidiately. Train from Colombo Fort will take you to Mt. Lavinia for 15 Rupies in 3 class and its about 15 minutes. From train it is 5-10minutes easy walk. Many shops and restarant around. Also you can take bus just from the main road with shops and it takes about 30 minutes and 30 rupies to Pettah. Good stuff. Highly recommended

    Petr2017-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • Its an awesome place to stay. Very clean, quiet and accessible. Its worth the money for sure. Rajesh was an amazing hosts. He knows the right restaurants and places to go to. Will recommend the place to everyone for sure.

    Rajiv2017-06-15T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Mohamed's place for our first night in Sri Lanka. Mohamed was extremely helpful in giving us advice how to get to his apartment, where the local shop was and how best to move on to our next destination. Mohamed was very quick to respond to all messages. The bedroom was as it looks in the photos and the bed was very comfortable, with reliable air conditioning. The bathroom is not as clean as shown in the photos but it was still pretty good. The apartment is a matter of minutes from the beach with lots of restaurants and between 2 train stations. I would say it is good value for money.

  • My last night in Sri Lanka and I decided to treat myself to some luxury. Villa Raha is a beautifully designed and considered home. I was made to feel very at home. The room was perfect. A very comfortable queen sized bed with eco gel pillows...I'm not sure I've slept so well in months! I loved the little touches from the Barefoot cushions to the generous power shower. I had a night in with a takeaway and indulged in watching a movie and packed happily in the morning listening to music on the LG sound bar (it can get loud let me tell you!) I opted for one last Sri Lankan breakfast and I was not disappointed. Fresh fruit, tea, coconut rice a wonderful chicken curry and sambal. I was full and happy. Next time I'm in Colombo I will definitely stay here again :) For any guests wanting to stay please ask for recommendations for shopping and food...you'll get great advice from a very lovely couple.

    Katherine2017-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing time! Imrah and Luay were extremely friendly and helpful. We arrived late at night but we were still given a very warm welcome which made us feel at home. The breakfast was fab, we highly recommend the avo sandwich! Would definitely come back for the amazing hospitality and kindness from the hosts and staff. The location was easy to find, with shops nearby.

    Mart2017-07-26T00:00:00Z
  • We've had a really nice stay in Villa Raha. Imrah and Luay arranged our transfer from the airport to the apartment. We used to check in at 14.00pm but fortunately they already had a room free for us directly after our arrival in the morning so we could check in earlier than expected. The whole accommodation looked really clean. Imrah and Luay, thanks for the nice stay and the kindness of you and the people working for you!

    Linda2017-06-05T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing hosts. The room was impeccable, the bed was so comfortable and just what I needed after a late night flight. They actually stayed up until 4am waiting since my flight got delayed, and were nice and so generous overall. Also they have great tips for shopping and what to see in Colombo. Would easily stay here again.

We didn't swim in the pool but it looked great and they were in the process of creating a spa... sure it will be just as glamorous as the rest of the place

  • We stayed at black cat for two nights and had a wonderful time. The place is super trendy and beautifully decorated. The room was perfect and the owners were really nice and friendly. We had the best coffee ever and food at their coffee shop is very tasty. Relaxing, fun, a great place to meet people and hang out!

    Melissa2017-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Had a great stay at Black Cat B&B, couldn't recommend it enough. Great location, with great food and service at the downstairs cafe. Was great to meet Youssef, Soeharni & Momo!

    Matt2016-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Had a great stay even if I didn't spend much time there. Staff is attentive and friendly. A joy actually. Roy the manager is helpful and makes great coffee! He was able to arrange a driver for me at short notice to go to Adam's peak from Colombo. Loved hanging out at the cafe. But place is also in walking distant to Odel shopping mall and food city supermarket. Also, in colombo catch a uber rather than a tuk tuk. Paid less for uber than tuk tuk going to the same place. Only downfall with accommodation would be the wifi did not seem to work in the rooms.

Lounge on the same floor and the café downstairs is great to hang out or eat good food. The staff is very accommodating, recommends places for dinner, organizes taxis...Would definitely go there again! Thanks

The location is ideal, Tuk Tuk's Buses and taxis are available 50 meters from the property! I'd love to stay another time if ever the opportunity arose. I didn't have the breakfast but he was happy to direct us to a local cafe. Don't hesitate to book a room, luxury at affordable prices.

  • Wow! This place was AMAZING! We wished we could have stayed longer here but we booked it at the end of our trip. Everything about it was amazing. They were able to find us a well priced driver to the airport. Did not eat the breakfast because we left so early in the morning. The amenities were outstanding and was by far the best place we stayed during our 3 weeks of travel. Hope to be back one day!

    Dominique2017-08-06T00:00:00Z
  • Great place in a quiet nook in Colombo, walking distance to oneup if you're into all day breakfast. The hosts are super nice, never in your face but always ready to help out. The apple TV and complimentary Netflix account are huge plusses.

    Nashiu2017-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • After a long flight, this B&B was incredible: the room was very confortable, the breakfast delicious and the hosts really helpful! It was 10 minutes far from Dutch hospital by tuk-tuk. If de go back to Colombo, we'll definerly repeat it!

  • Sooriya is always such a great host! He took my friends around the city and even to the beach. Highly recommended to stay with him if you're in Colombo.

    Zelia2017-04-16T00:00:00Z
  • From the beginning to the end our experience was truly AMAZING! The house is located in Nugegoda with walking distance to lots of restaurants and supermarkets. The house is gorgeous, very clean and super quiet. After picking up the rental car and heading towards the house, it was around lunch time. Sooriya was waiting for us and then he took us to "Gihan's" restaurant located next door. You can get very nice food for cheap price from them. Sooriya made us feeling as we were at home. He is a very friendly and helpful person.

    Alois2017-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • We had a really nice stay, our bed was super comfortable, the room was really beautiful and the house is very nice. You can go the balcony and have a drink in the evening. Our host Sooriya was friendly and helpful. He is a great communicator and offered tips on fun things to do in his neighbourhood. The area is perfect, very close to cute shops, cafés and some of the best food we've eaten this trip. Easy access to public transit and public parks. What a nice spot! I totally recommend staying here. :)

    Lisa 2016-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • Sooriya is very kind and charming, nice to talk with. No problem to meet and get the keys. The room is very nice and has everything that needs to feel comfortable. The house is easily reachable by bus, train or taxi (the nearest bus stop is just a minute away), and well connected with all interesting places in Colombo. You can find everything you need (Cafè, Bar, Restaurant, super market etc.) within in the neighourhood, just a few steps away. I would definitely recommend Rest 80 guest room. If you travel to Colombo, you should check if Sooriya’s place is free. You can feel as if you were living in Colombo.

    Rachel2016-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • One of the best stays so far! Sooriya was home when I stayed, but it was actually really nice to chat and get to know him. He also give you access to his kitchen, which I really appreciated. He was also really great at giving information about local places to eat and food market. The location is also really close to everything. The house was SO nice! The bed is SO comfortable and the bathroom is clean. I was so late for my arrival, felt badly coming at such a late hour and fully expected to receive a text or note with arrival instructions. Instead, Sooriya not only waited up for me but warmly greeted me and stayed up to swap a few stories about Sri Lanka. It was very kind and inviting experience. Overall, I really enjoyed staying here!

    Frank2016-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • Soriya’s charming home was beautiful and amazing. Our room was spacious and very comfortable. Soriya provides all the comforts of home and has been such a gracious host. He clearly communicated with us before and during my stay. Everything was easy to follow and he clearly wanted our stay in Colombo to be the best. He provides a lovely and comfortable home away from home in the beautiful city of Colombo. We look forward to our trip next year and staying with Soriya again.

    Adam2017-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • My stay was very short but great. I would definitely recommend staying here. Sooriya was lovely and easy to get along with. He was great and always friendly and welcoming. Sooriya also had very good communication as I booked the room the day of. The room was very large so you have a lot of personal space and sparsely furnished which made for a simple, relaxing stay. Bathroom and kitchen were nice and big and clean. The house was spacious and cosy. Location is perfect; well situated very close to public transport. The area is really nice I was able to find a good brunch just in the corner of street. Overall I wish I was in Colombo longer to have stayed longer :)

    Gautam2016-12-19T00:00:00Z
  • Sooriya provides a clean and centrally located place close to restaurants and shops, functional kitchen, comfortable bed and free parking. His place is nice and cosy with enough space for a couple to live comfortably. We were lucky enough to be there in the time that he rents his place when he is there, because this guy is amazing. Always ready with a funny anecdote, helpful info and willing to take us to great places. If you have a chance to stay with him, make sure you take time to talk to him. He has amazing stories about his travels and has unique perspectives on the world. Never have we been to an Airbnb where the host is so set on making our stay the most amazing ever. Recommended!

    From the moment you step into Cottage Garden Bungalows 1-3, set amidst a lush tropical garden in College Avenue, Mount Lavinia, you will enjoy the serenity and comfort of a elegantly furnished bungalows in an exclusive private setting. Located about 50 meters from the iconic Mount Lavinia Beach, these Bungalows are ideal for a getaway weekend, or for a longer stay. Bunglows 1,-3, each has a large room, with windows on two sides, kitchenette, bathroom/toilet, verandah and a large garden space.
    Bungalow 1 is the corner most bungalow and has a large garden space. The bungalow has a spacious bed room with 2 single beds, TV, worktable, chairs, cupboards with A/C. A newly refurbished bathroom/toilet is attached. The bungalow has its own fully equipped kitchenette with refrigerator and cooker and I will stock your fridge with breakfast items and more. If you enjoy verandah or porch living, this is the space to have your morning tea/coffee and enjoy the garden, birds, squirrels or an evening chat and drink. Bungalow 1 is specially ideal for families with small children and there is plenty of space for a cot or extra bed. It has a large garden which is safe for children to run around and has a garden tap and hose to cool down. This bungalow is also a favourite with my long stay guests. They love having breakfast in the garden under the shade. There are 3 bungalows and I have listed 2 on airbnb - Bungalow 1 and Bungalow 2. A discount is possible if both bungalows are rented.
    Your are just 2 minutes from the iconic Mount Lavinia beach. Start the day with a stroll along the beach and end the day watching the sunset. The neighborhood is a combination of residential, hotels,guest houses and restaurants as well as S.Thomas' College a very prestiges boys' school in Sri Lanka. On the beach, you will be amazed at the diversity and variety of foods from the local rice and curry to Indian, Chinese, Malay and Western cuisine, with sea food specialty. My favourite hangout is the La Langousterie which on a weekend has a live band, good food and plenty of space. The best frozen margaritas are made in the La Voile Blanch. Practically all restaurants offer bar service (suspended on full moon, or Poya holidays, considered sacred in the Buddhist calendar). However, the beach restaurants are pricey and don't exactly offer typical local menus. For local food, the Galle road has many little eating houses with good food at very reasonable prices. If, you are looking for fast food, there are many such outlets between Mount Lavinia and Dehiwela along Galle Road (about 200 meters from the Bungalows), which offer global brands such as Burger King, Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC), Barista, Pizza Hut, Domino’s Pizza, etc. There are also many fine patisseries, bakery goods outlets, cafes, bars and pubs. For fine dining you could try the Mount Lavinia Hotel or more informal hotels like La Rambla, Toby’s Estate, etc., or you can sample street food at wayside eateries, godamba, kottu roti, kadale, vadai, and so on. The choice is endless.
  • As well as Janitha herself, her place is the best! Bungalows are literally 100 meters away from the beach, clean, private, spacious and with equiped kitchen! If we could give more rating stars, we'd go for it for sure :)

    Patrycja2017-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • The bungalows are amazing with new modern bathrooms and fully equipped kitchen (great as I like to make salads for lunch and do not want to go out to a restaurant every time I am hungry). I did not realise when I booked that there was AC (not something I look for as I am not normally an AC person) but it did help to take the edge of at the hottest time of the day. The garden is beautiful with butterflies, kingfishers (well, some amazing blue bird anyway) and star tortoises. Only three minutes to the beach, four minutes to a Foot Spa and eight minutes to the supermarket. I stayed a months and it was a haven for me to get some writing work done. Ranjith who looks after the bungalows was super helpful and I cannot think of a single thing to improve. All was perfect.

    Rita2017-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • We greatly recommend this place, is near the beach, near public transportation and Janitha is a super host.

    Orlando2016-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • The host is extremely responsive and willing to go the extra mile to help you out. She made sure the kitchen was superbly stocked up - bread, water, fruits, eggs etc. - so I didn't even have to buy any food while I was there. There is a caretaker 24/7 who is always helpful and knowledgeable about the area. The location itself is close to the beach and a green haven in the middle of a bustling city - cannot beat that!

    Rohan2016-12-19T00:00:00Z
  • The caretaker and hostess were the best we experienced in Sri Lanka! The cottage was very room, with nice furniture and good AC. It is an excellent location very near some good cafes, eateries and the beach is about one block away. I wasn't able to swim as the sea is not calm for this season - check the season if you hope to go into the water! Also, I was very charmed when we came back from out outings and saw that the caretaker had left groceries in our kitchen for morning breakfast. We enjoyed a local pub with delicious food about 10 minutes away called Lion Pub. Both my boyfriend and I even got good haircuts in the neighborhood! Enjoy!

    Jennifer2017-07-08T00:00:00Z
  • Janitha's place is absolutely wonderful, right by the beach with rooms set in beautiful gardens. Janitha and her team couldn't have been friendlier and made our first day in Sri Lanka perfect! Her breakfast spread is delicious and she has a wealth of knowledge about sri Lanka which is invaluable!! thanks!

    Felicity2017-02-04T00:00:00Z

    Alex2017-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • I would highly recommend this accommodation, it was clean and well maintained, it has everything you needed for a comfortable stay. The wifi was patchy but not too bad. The housekeeper was lovely and made us breakfast each day. It was so nice to stay here as it felt like a home, not just a room for the night :)

    Rebekah2017-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • We can't say enough good things about Dilo's generosity and helpfulness as a host - from the snacks in the fridge to helping us organise a taxi to the airport to pick up our travelling companions in the middle of the night. She was also responsible for possibly our best eating experience in our whole trip, at Saraswathi, just around the corner. Thoroughly recommended!

    Bree2015-10-19T00:00:00Z

Thank you for having us!:)

  • a very nice and clean place to explore colombo. it's next to two main roads but the place is very quiet. dilo is a wonderful host, she even prepared breakfast for us very early. to get into the old town you can easily catch a tuktuk in front of dilo's place.

Wifi speed was fast and reliable if you need to plan/book anything for your trip or do a little work during your stay. Chamira was such a great host. From the moment we got there until after we left he made sure everything was perfect. He went out of his way to help us find a printing shop and let us stay longer than originally planned. Highly recommend!

  • Location is very central and walking distance to many shops and restaurants. The room is comfortable and spacious. Chamira was super helpful and available any time we had questions or needed something. Great place for a couple nights in Colombo. Would recommend.

    Adrienne 2017-04-25T00:00:00Z
  • Chamira, the host was really friendly and hospitable. The location was great, in an exclusive part of town yet short 3 wheeler ride away to Colombo Fort and a 10 mins walk to Independence Square Arcade. Room was clean and well maintained. Comfortable bed that can easily fit 2 people. Offers good value for money.

    Jerome2017-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • We had a nice stay at Chamira's place. We were pleasant suprised how clean and how well maintained the room was. We were welcomed by the housekeeper, but Chamira came by at a later moment to meet us and to have a little talk. Thank you, Chamira.

    Lesley2017-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • The room was clean and had great air con. Chamira was fantastic for answering all my questions in the run up to our stay, he even organised for our clothes to be ironed before the party we were attending. Location was perfect for where we wanted to be and my friend forgot his charger and Chamira was more than helpful in getting it returned.

  • Chandana and his wife are just incredible hosts. We came in late after a 10-hour car ride, and they both were available to let us into the house. They had warm smiles on their faces. Chandana called me several times on the phone to make sure our stay was pleasant. He is very kind and attentive to his guest's needs. Chandana, his wife, and I went to get coffee. Getting to know them was such a bonus. Highly recommend this place. The view from the balcony is worth coming back.

    Kunal2016-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • Once again our family had a wonderful stay in Chandana's spacious, clean, with loads of natural light, very comfortable apartment. We loaded up at the two supermarkets a short walk away and cooked up a storm(s) in the fully equipped kitchen. The washing machine was well utilized after 7 weeks travelling throughout Sri Lanka. Our teenage boys enjoyed the friendliness of the security staff as they repeatedly frequented the rooftop pool and they were both keen to get full use of the very good WiFi. Once again we were struck by how inexpensive it was to catch a tuktuk to the Fort or Mt Lavinia. The most we paid in either direction was 400 rupees and trips were only 10 minutes or so. We still made good use of the train. For the 7 nights we stayed in total I sat mesmerized on your balcony by the glinting sunlight on the Indian Ocean as the sun set on another beautiful day in Sri Lanka. The view is seared in my memory. The view of Colombo from your apartment rooftop is stupendously spectacular. It's like I could see the whole city. When we were making plans to stay at your apartment we were worried about the electricity usage. We were sensible with the air conditioning use and found that there was no need for us to have worried. A big thankyou to you both for allowing us to make a home in your apartment, for your friendliness and for the wonderful memories our family have to share forever of our time spent in Colombo. You have a special place in our hearts.

    Kerrie2016-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • Chandana and his wife were delightful hosts and both have fantastic English.The apartment has fabulous views of the ocean. It was great being able to catch up on all our washing with a washing machine after our long trip coming from India. It was great having 2 bathrooms and 2 bedrooms travelling with our 17 year old daughter. Great stay thanks guys.

    Karen2016-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Can't recommend this place highly enough. Chandana and his wife were fantastic hosts, waiting patiently due to our late arrival and welcoming us so warmly. Communication beforehand was prompt and friendly. The apartment itself was ideal. Centrally located, with everything we needed, decorated and maintained to an excellent, modern standard. The air con was a bonus! Fantastic sea view too! Chandana was just a phone call away if we needed any assistance and the security guards who looked after the apartments looked after us well. You will not regret staying here. A lovely haven from the hustle and bustle of the city. Thanks so much Chandana, we will be back! Jo, Udhi and Coral

  • Chandana and his wife was always welcoming and place was impeccable. Our extension went smooth.

    Ravi2015-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our Stay at Chandana's apartment!! Great view of the ocean, which is few feet away by walk. The apartment is very comfortable and clean. Chandana is always available to help and will try to go above and beyond to make sure his guests are happy. We arrived at 3 am after a long flight from Canada and he was there to receive us and ensure everything was to our satisfaction. Would definitely stay here on our next trip! Thanks Chandana, keep up the good work! Antony

    tony2017-04-13T00:00:00Z
  • Chandanas apartment is a two bedring apartment on 7 floor. One room faxes the ocean with a Beautiful view. And a Nice balcony that is accesable from the kitchen and room. The other room faxes the Hall/walking arena of the inside of the building. The apartment is clean and Chandana is a kind and respectful host. The Price is the only downside as it is a bit Steep compared to Colombo prices. Chandana meet at the apartment early morning he and his wife had bought water juice and coffee tea for os. I highly recommend Chandana as your host.

    Jonas2017-07-17T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely apartment, as described and photographed. We were greeted by Chandana & Sharanaika, with a welcome package of juices, plunger coffee, tea and milk in the fridge. They phoned the following day to see if everything was OK. The apartment had an air con in each room and we had these going most of the time during our 4 night stay, along with the ceiling fans and we didn't exceed our electricity allowance. Bed Linens were crisp and the bathroom towels were white and fluffy. The apartment is situated approx 6kms from the city centre, but getting around was no problem with plenty of tuktuks at the door and a supermarket just a short stroll around the corner. We enjoyed having the use of the washing machine and iron. The most wonderful part of our stay was waking to the sea view and ending our day on the balcony soaking up the warm sea breezes.

This room is ideal for guests looking for a place to be part of Colombo & experience the city with minimum hassel. Such places like Galle face green, light house, gangarama temple, dutch hospital, indipendence square just few minutes by tuk tuk.
    With comfortable double bed with dressing table & cloth rack. Towels will be provided. Shared living area, bathroom with hot water facility & kitchen. Refregirator, hot water kettle, toaster & stove with kichen equipments. Free wifi will be provided. One parking slot for a vehicle.
    Flat's majority is middle class citizens of Colombo who does day jobs. Very kind & friendly people. I had much positive comments from long term guests regarding their interactions with neibours.
  • We had a nice stay Isuru's place, to bad the shower didn't fully function.

    Britt2017-06-05T00:00:00Z
  • Despite the great communication I had with Isuru, my first impression was a mixed one. I was apprehensive when I was walking to his flat (apartment) passing the others, as the rest didn't look promising. But I changed my mind the minute I walked into his. It's a lovely little 2 bedroom flat with all the basic amenities you need, even for a long stay. The room I was given is a decent sized room with a double bed. Even though they don't live in that place, Isuru and his lovely wife make sure that the house is in great condition before a guest moves in. As a host, I cannot recommend Isuru enough as I saw how great with all his guests. As someone who was born and bread in Colombo he knows the city very well. On top of that, he goes out of his way to do whatever he can do to make his guests' lives comfortable. Location wise it's in a fantastic location, just a 2 minute walk from R.A.De Mel Mawatha (Duplication Road) near Kollupitiya Junction. Please note that even though the listing says it's a room with air-conditioning, I only used the fans and I believe that you need to pay a little extra towards the electricity bills if you would like to use the aircon. All in all it's a great find and I would highly recommend it to anyone who's looking for a place to stay in central Colombo.

    Pradeep2016-10-31T00:00:00Z

    Simon2016-06-16T00:00:00Z
  • Isuru is very nice. He comes for us to airport in the morning (at 6 am) and explain the different street of Colombo. His guest house is in center, in heart of Colombo. It is simply, clean and the price is correct. This guest house is in tipical street. And i love this place. If i come back on Colombo, i go in Isuru !

    Guillaume2016-06-05T00:00:00Z
  • Really clean and warm stay. Centrally located. Isuru's helped a lot with local direction and information. Definitely recommandated.

    Babu2016-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • It's been nice to spend our last night here. Isuru's father has been kind and gentle to wait for us in very early morning. The room was good but we didn't know we were sharing the apartment with other tourists. Towels were not clean.

The hosts welcomed us with a ginger ale and wet towels which was soothing after a packed train trip from galle. The location is really good and the place is private and quiet .

    Amy2017-04-05T00:00:00Z

  • We had a wonderful stay at Heshan’s place. We stayed either end of our Sri Lankan tour, three and two days. Everyday waking up to sweet sing song of tropical birds. Heshan’s parents, Hiren and Ramani, are very friendly and homely and kindly arranged our airport transfers, provided useful advise on local transport modes and our shopping interests; and for a small fee cooked us good breakfast. In a nut shell it was more than home from home. Will definitely stay at Heshan’s place again.

    Natwarlal2017-03-27T00:00:00Z
  • Heshans parents are very lovely and helpfully hosts. The house/guestroom was very clean and comfortable. I recomend this host.

    Christoph2015-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • This was our first Airbnb experience and it was a very enjoyable one. Heshan's parents welcomed us with a glass of fresh watermelon juice. The house, bedroom and attached bathroom were nice and clean as per description. The location was residential and a bit outside the frantic part of Colombo but still of very easy access. We paid extra for the breakfast which was very good (fruit, eggs, toasts, etc). Excellent Wifi connection. Heshan's parents were very kind and hospitable and helped us with directions, shops, etc. Heshan's Dad helped us with tracing our family history and made a few calls for us. Well beyond our expectations! We are very grateful.

  • Heshan's parents were absolutely wonderful! Our stay in Colombo was great, mostly thanks to our hosts. They have a lovely and beautiful home that is kept very neat and clean. Also, they took time and effort out of their day to show us their tempel, helped us arrange our onward travels and gave us suggestions for a great evening in Colombo! They were very sweet to my young daughter and thought of her and took us to see an elephant. When we arrived before the check-in time they let us use the upstairs level to wash and clean up. The breakfast was delicious with eggs, toast, fresh fruit and yoghurt. I give my warmest recommendations to Heshan's parents as hosts.

    Mathilda2016-03-31T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed for one night at Heshans house. His family welcomed us very friendly with a delicious welcome-drink. The room was very comfortable and perfectly cleaned, we also got some friuts, water and towles. The family helped us to plan our trip with some origin informations and gave us a map. Heshan offered us meals for little money. Our breakfast was very various and tasty. All in all it was a perfect place to start our trip. We would definetly come back here and recommend this place :)

    Carolin2015-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Heshan and his family were perfect hosts, they made our short stay in Colombo truly memorable. They were very helpful and gave us good suggestions about the city. The house and the room itself was really tidy and comfortable. I would recommend staying here for anyone.

It is also close to the most government offices, embassies, universities, cafes, train station (If you want to enjoy the train to Galle or Kandy) museums, and many other touristic places such as Arcade Independence Square and beach is just 5 KM.
