“Best value for money in Colombo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2011

This place is an excellent choice in Colombo. The rooms could do with some sprucing up, but they are spacious, clean, cooled by AC and fan and, for the price (low mid-range), incredibly well equipped: fridge, hair dryer, kettle, wifi, comp water, tea and coffee. There are three roomy, common spaces, including two lovely porches that open onto the large garden, one with a hanging goldfish pond, and a large living room with TV and ping pong table. There is even a room for guests with toaster, microwave, washing machine and iron.

The location is pleasant, super quiet, and walking distance to national museum, central park, shops like Odel and Paradise Rd. and, most importantly, a direct bus that connects to the bus and train stations.

The included breakfast is the most generous in our three weeks in Sri Lanka, and the dinners are outstanding. And the price for a car to the airport is cheaper than what we were charged by our hotel in Negombo on arrival (less than half the distance).

The staff and owners are also really kind and friendly--the lady of the house gave an amazing classical music concert last night (piano and flute). Well she was practicing in her studio, but it was lovely, nevertheless. If/when I come back to Colombo this is where I'd stay.
