  • My third time staying at the Charming White Room - the hospitality is wonderful and is always the same. Friendly host who is quick to respond and is flexible for any additional requests - I loved staying there and will be back there soon. The place is more like a home to me now. I would highly recommend the guest house for anybody travelling to stay in a private place where you are surrounded by other tourists - cozy and warm house - you can be yourself - solitude. Close proximity to city centre and very convenient to be in and out for shopping or on other trips.

  • Superb room, very clean and very cozy. Really a favorite! Very caring host, who really puts you at ease. In a beautiful district, we are calm while being a few minutes by tuk tuk from places to visit. If you go through Colombo I can only advise you to come and stay with Gayathri

Very clean, peaceful place closer to public transport, good hotels! So Gayathri's stay gave us a very good start for holiday in Sri Lanka! Thank you!

    Sajjala2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved our stay here! Our taxi was kindly organised from the airport to the Airbnb resulting in a seamless late night arrival. The room was cosy and cute. Further, we were cooked a nourishing breakfast when we woke the next day. Had lovely chats with the host. Highly recommend. Above and beyond.

    Daisy2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Very Nice - in a quiet area. This way you get to see the greener side of Colombo.

    Jesper2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Gayathri's lovely home is in a quiet and paceful neighborhood. However the hustle and bustle of the city center is just a short tuk tuk ride away. The house itself is bright, clean and very comfortable. Gayathri was extremely helpful in giving me the confidence to navigate around Colombo, after an international flight. This was a great introduction to Colombo. Thanks so much, Gayathri!

  • Villa Raha is a beautiful space, with staff happy to go above and beyond for any of your needs. We were given an extensive list of local places to try, our (very!) late check in was of no issue and the on site pool and cafe were fantastic.

    Melinda2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely hotel with a unique style situated in a nice area of Colombo. Everyone was very friendly, the room was nice and the beds and seating area comfortable. There Wer lots of plugs to charge all your electronic stuff. I loved that they handed out lots of infos for exploring Colombo. Unfortunately we've spent only 1 night there and had neither time to use the pool nor eat at the cafe. So next time we will stay longer for sure. Thanks for the great stay.

  • This is a hotel-style room. The facilities are complete and the environment is comfortable. The hotel manager will introduce you to the room facilities in detail. They also have a cafe downstairs for breakfast or dinner, which is very good ~~

  • What an amazing place, I feeled so loved. And amazing hospitality and food. If you are very “ pool people” then maybe the huge hotel is better. Have been stayed in Colombo in those huge hotels but I wount anymore and will stay @ Raha Villa deffinetly. Villa is not in centre-centre but still very close. And as most of tuk tuks are metered now to drive around is very affordable. Thank you our dear hosts and have a very merry Christmas!

    Terje2019-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • Imran’s hospitality was one of my most memorable experiences of my stay in Colombo. He gave us insights into great places to eat, always offered to assist with anything we needed. His beautiful family were so welcoming, rooms were amazing with great facilities such as an outdoor swimming pool.

  • This is an apartment with a great view. The apartment is well set up and convenient.It was spacious compared to all our other stays in Sri Lanka and would easily accommodate 2 adult couples or a family with 2 children. It is as described and we were very happy with the apartment and our stay in it. Olly was very easy to communicate with and we would certainly use it again if visiting Sri Lanka and Colombo.

  • This is a lovely guesthouse close to the immigration office in Columbo. The owners Oshi and Rohana could bring have been more helpful.Our children really liked there room and the pool. They were made to feel very at home. We were given tea and pineapple on arrival which was great after a long drive. Breakfast was delicious. We would definitely like to come back and stay again next time we are in Columbo

    Ben2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • A really stunning place beautifully decorated with lush garden and pool.. fab stay thank you

    Tim2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • No words can describe our experience. It exceeded all our expectations. We are seasoned travellers but never had such a fantastic experience. This will be truly hard to beat. Everything was absolutely perfect, from beautiful decor to tranquillity of the garden. There is nothing better than a hot fragrant milky and sugary tea in the garden beside the pool after a busy day in Colombo. And if this isn't enough, you can get pampered with local food by a chef on site. We truly recommend to arrange your food in the Villa. We were spoilt for choice and it all tasted fantastic. It is also reasonably priced. Our first day in Colombo we dined in the centre of Colombo and went for an upmarket restaurant. The food prepared by the chef in the Villa was much better than the one we had in the centre of Colombo. The Villa is located 30 - 45 min tuk tuk drive from the centre of Colombo and is very clean. It is well looked after by two staff members on site and by Oshi Mama - a jewell in the crown. She gives the place the homely feel. When you cross the main door you feel you returned home after a long spell of being away. Oshi Mama we love you!

    Marcin2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • We would totally recommend this place to all because its a huge , nice n artistic house at a good location. The host Oshi is a very kind n humble woman who always went out of the way to make us feel special , also we made good friends with the couple from Germany who were on their 5th visit to the house n u can guess about the great hospitality already. Even the care takers of the house wre very polite n took great care of us n cooked very good food too . One cn book this place without 2nd thoughts 👌🏻

    Lech2019-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • On the evening of our arrival, we were warmly welcomed by Nethruu's mom, her husband, and the staff. For us it was the perfect start for our trip through Sri Lanka. The accommodation is tucked away about an hour away from Colombo (by taxi / Uber). In the morning we could choose between typical Seidonesian breakfast or European. We chose the first one and it was delicious. Nethruu's mom gave us the tip for dinner, to go to a small food stand not far from the place where she even walked with us. She and the locals were so hospitable, she drove off for us and organized beer, and spontaneously a tuk tuk driver who took us to the next supermarket. We would choose again and again, for the small hidden jungle, perfect to arrive !!

  • Overall, it’s okay, just started to see the hostess and her three nannies, a little scared, and our driver said that there is no problem, you can stay, very safe, because we are two girls. After checking in, I found that I was really satisfied. The breakfast was very rich. The house was beautiful. They were some photos and collectibles. When I left, one of the nannies took the initiative to ask us for a tip, although I didn’t give it because I There is no extra money on hand. This is a matter of opinion, but it does affect my good mood, but I like the hostess very much and shared photos of her trip with her.

  • Very intimate, hospitable, breakfast is also very good, also help pick up the plane, set the car, set the restaurant, two dogs are very cute, the room is unique and warm, very few girls with powder. The driver of the sudden car is also very nice~

  • The landlord grandmother's super good butler service is also very intimate. Although there is a little episode but it is also quickly resolved, it is highly recommended that the room layout is super warm.

  • The host grandmother received us, everyone in the room was warm and hospitable, the house had the feeling of home, refined and clean, like a paradise. Everyone arranged a car and a series of questions for us. It was very thoughtful, the breakfast was delicious, the two dogs were very cute, and there was a naughty kitten. In short, recommend it here.

    子月2019-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • The warm bed and breakfast, the breakfast is as good as everyone said, and I have not eaten enough for two days. The garden can be seen in both rooms on the second floor, where you can see squirrels and many crows, as well as beautiful flowers. The homestay can be located on the google map without worrying about finding it. We used the hotel's chartered bus to and from the airport. Although it was a little expensive, it was convenient. After going out to the main road, there are a lot of sudden cars in the house. They are not going to detour according to the rules. You can find a lot of phone cards when you turn right on the main road. The owner of the home is very kind and always accompanied by a laugh.

    2019-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Very beautiful house, very good old lady, chat with you for breakfast. The only downside is that there are only two servants in the family when I go. I can only understand some basic words. There is a slight obstacle in communication. But the service is not said, but then, isn’t it that airbnb wants it?

  • Villa Barbara is lovely. The feel of the place makes you think you’ve arrived home, if your home was in a tropical paradise. There are three gorgeous large balconies that offer plenty of room for morning yoga surrounded by palm trees and a great view of the lagoon. The smallest of the balconies has a cool ocean breeze nearly all day long and it quickly became my favorite spot for meditation and relaxation. A short walk, all on property, will take you to a palm topped gazebo on the waters of the lagoon perfect for a drink or meditation. This was my wife’s favorite spot to do yoga and watch all the varied wildlife in the area. The pool was always crystal clear and a perfect place to cool off or start a morning. By far the best feature of this villa was the host. He was thoughtful and friendly and went well beyond the normal to ensure we had everything we needed during our stay. As we were here during the corona crisis I know it was very difficult to provide that level of service, it was never less than amazing. You leave Upul’s place with more than just memories, you leave having found a friend.

    Lee2020-04-14T00:00:00Z

  • This is the perfect place I’ve you just started your trip with your family or your mates. Upul is really friendly and he speaks proper English, he will arrange a maid/cook who will be around to cook for you (highly recommended) after you got the supplies/groceries from the locals around the area. Upul also got his friend/collega who drives a tuktuk and will help you get around to a restaurant or nearbij temple/place. We really enjoyed or stay in the villa with pool and got ready for our adventure trough Sri Lanka! Much love the 3 Dutch amigos

    We have listed our other property as Roadster Colombo - a small city hotel with 16 rooms, elevator and additional amenities. Roadster Studio-XJ-S: We have listed our second room (same location) separately (Roadster Studio-Pagoda). XJ-S has a King-Sized bed/ spring-air mattress, fresh linen, attached toilet (solar hot water shower), basic toiletries, 4G wifi, a/c, tea/ coffee & drinking water. Roadster is walking distance to The Arcade and Race Course (pubs, restaurants, shops, cinemas) etc.
    Roadster Studio is a purpose built, two bed room outfit, detached from the main house. It is a brand new construction and launched in December 2016. It has its own private entrance and provides complete privacy from the main house. The compound houses several British, French and German classic sports cars manufactured in the 1950s, 60s and 70s. Most of the cars are convertibles, which the guests can view, with descriptions from the host.
    The location, although central, is quiet and peaceful, with interconnected residential lanes allowing guests to do an early morning jog around the neighborhood. Our neighbours are embassies, embassy residences, some government ministers and a temple.
  • Our stay at Chamira's place was lovely. The place was clean and private. The location was quiet and secluded yet still just a short walk from the main street and Arcade Independence Square. We were grateful for the AC during the hot days we faced in Colombo.

  • Since I lived in Colombo 07 for 2 year, so I highly recommend this place because of its location, value for money and safety.

    Jawad2020-02-19T00:00:00Z

  • Quiet place in Colombo, lovely hosts and a clean room. We enjoyed our stay at your accommodation Greetings from Germany

    Katharina2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean room, beautiful decorated and easy access to the busy Colombo streets, but far enough that you can have a quiet and restful stay in the city.

    Yasmin2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Great communication and kind hospitality for a very last minute booking!

    Jamie Lynne2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Arjuna and family were very warm and welcoming, great hospitality, they had lots of great recommendations and helpful tips on places to eat and see in Sri Lanka when asked, they give you your own space and just go about their day. They also have a lovely pet dog, lily who loves pats! But just keeps to herself if you’re not a dog person. They offer to cook breakfast, lunch and dinner for a small fee, we opted for traditional Sri Lankan breakfast one morning and continental the next, it was delicious! The home was in a great location, located on a back street so was nice and quiet. Cricket Club cafe is located around the corner for more western food or Mango tree for Sri Lanka, both within walking distance from the house. Our room and bathroom were clean, wifi, A/C/ fan in room, hot water, room also a lock on the door not that we ever felt we needed to lock it! Would definitely stay here again!

    Tim2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Spacious airy and in a great location. This was the perfect place for us on our last night in Sri Lanka. Refreshments on arrival were thoughtful and gratefully received!

    Alastair2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Arjuna is a really good host and will give you the best welcome in colombo ! It was really pleasant to stay here and we will come back again for sure !

    Helschger2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Everyone in Arjuna's household is very accommodating and friendly. The location is extremely good because you can get to the city quickly and it is still very quiet (in my opinion the most relaxed area of Colombo). Breakfast at $ 5 is really sensational.

    Fabian2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Arjuna and family are lovely to stay with. Very hospitable and were happy to provide assistance and local tips. I would recommend the breakfast they provide each morning as it was fresh and delicious. We also loved spending time with Arjuna’s beautiful dog Lily!

    The Surya Room is an en suite room on the third floor of the Beira House. This room, named after Surya our golden retriever, is full of light, life, and colour. Surya was originally the master bedroom of the house and has lovely views of the Beira lake from its own private balcony and plenty of space for relaxation. There is also ample storage and cupboard space for guests and a large bathroom.
    The Beira house has 3 other rooms where guests may be staying - including long stay guests. The Luna room (sleeps 2) is also available for bookings on AirBnB. There are several common areas including two large balconies, living room, a small garden, dining area, and kitchen for shared usage. The rooftop balcony is ideal for yoga under the Bo Tree, whilst the first floor balcony has a large terrace for sundowners and star gazing. There are card games (including local favourite Hora Deal), reading material, and TV in the living room. The kitchen includes a gas cooker, microwave, oven, kettle, water filter for drinking water, and plenty of crockery and cutlery for shared usage. The house is fully solar powered.
    The Beira House is in Colpetty, a vibrant neighbourhood of Colombo. There are plenty of dining options in the vicinity - Praneetha (some of the best local fare), Ramen Hamakaze (Japanese), and The Lagoon (seafood), are personal favourites within walking distance. Life Food is great for a late morning coffee and some healthy dining and Monkeybean is another café around the corner for coffee and snacks. The neighbourhood has grown around the Beira lake - ideal for an evening stroll, or a paddle around on a swan boat, before dropping into the serene Seema Malakaya for quiet meditative reflection. Other nearby attractions include the Gangaramaya Temple, the St. Michael's Church (Gal Palliya), and Viharamaha Devi park.
  • Beautiful view in the surya room😍 Great house and very good location 👌

    Василина2020-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • I had a very pleasant stay a Deshal's apartment in March 2020. The room is large and well equipped and has an outdoor patio with views over the lake. The lounge area is stylish and the kitchen well equipped. Deshal was very helpful and quick to respond to any questions. The location is perfect, near enough to walk to the nearby temples and shopping centre (including supermarket) or the coast for as sunset stroll. Deshal had left a manual with some very good suggestions for things to do as well. Totally recomendable!

    Steve2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • You will find every thing you need.

    Hany2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • This place is very comfortable. I got a lot of great experiences. And a lounge on the 2nd floor is very vast. I could work in a comfortable place.

    Masaaki2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • We had a delightful experience staying at Deshal’s. The room was spotless when we arrived. Exactly how they show on the website. Deshal was really helpful in guiding us to the house at early hours in the morning, as well as arranging stuff we needed during our stay. Deshal and Minu have wonderfully curated a list of restaurants and bars in a notebook, which we found super useful for someone new to Colombo! The view from the Surya room is excellent as it oversees the Beira Lake. Location is perfect too — most of the must-see locations are within 10 minutes distance. A highly recommended place!

    Sebastien2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Dilo's Airbnb was the perfect place to start off our adventure in Sri Lanka! We arrived really late at night but she was still available when we landed at the airport and also managed to be awake when we arrived by a cheap Uber. It cost around 1200 LKR (= 6.10€) and took us about 50 minutes. Dilo welcomed us very warmly and we even had the chance to get the breakfast right the next morning—what a great hospitality! Although we only had two nights, the whole stay was really lovely and we were always free to ask away anything. Even when not asked verbally, Dilo helped out whenever she could. One night we left our two empty water flasks outside on the table and as soon as she arrived home, we had another refill waiting for us. This would be for sure a 6-star value Airbnb! Small room with everything you need in a urban area. It's close to the international Colombo airport CMB and only a couple of streets to supermarkets, a delicious vegetarian restaurant and train stations to head on from there. Plus a lovely and mindful host? Couldn't ask for more and would love to come visit again!

    Lars2020-02-17T00:00:00Z

    NO BULLSHIT VERSION This is a room. Its home is a four bed house in central Colombo. It has a bed (comfortable for one, wee bit of a squeeze for two), desk and dresser. Climate control via fan. The bathroom is modern and clean. Complimentary water, tea and coffee. The kitchen has a fridge, stove and washing machine. The WiFi works. Cleaning done thrice a week. If you need a drink, there’s a dive bar around the corner. They haven’t heard of cocktails. Thank goodness.
    PRETENTIOUS GUIDEBOOK VERSION The middle class is a confused species. So is this house. Typical of the older Sri Lankan middle class homes, unglamorous contemporary pieces begrudgingly allow family heirlooms lovingly passed down to steal the limelight. But each one has its own story. The bathroom, alas, is incongruently contemporary and shockingly modern. You’ll find an occasional chip or scratch on the wall - nothing you would notice unless you look. They’re subtly there to remind you that this is a home in which people lived. Not a hotel. Make use of the kitchen - which is rustic - but comes equipped with the necessities of 21st century backpacking such as a espresso maker. There’s a boutique that grinds Sri Lankan coffee around the corner. Inspect the bookshelf (which holds all five volumes of the Bibliography of Ceylon), flip through the picturebooks and puzzle at the anti-Macassars. Laze about on the terrace, smugly self satisfied that the ferocious fan - and all electricity in the house - is solar powered. Moan about your hosts idiosyncratic Sri Lankan music tastes as you listen to the on the YouTube/Spotify play list he sends you. Until you fancy an adventure, then all of Colombo is around the corner and an Uber Moto ride away. *If, like me on occasion, you can't live without air conditioning or an attached bathroom check out my other listing.* https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/36676674?s=67&shared_item_type=1&virality_entry_point=1
    Middle Class House is on what is fast becoming Colombo’s restaurant street with wood fired pizza, laksa, sushi, bakeries and, of course, Sri Lankan food within a five minutes walk. Popular destinations are usually a 10 min Uber ride away including the Colombo Museum, Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Sapumal Foundation, Barefoot Gallery & Cafe, Gallery Cafe, Paradise Road, Saskia Fernando Gallery. The Colombo Fort is 20 mins away.
  • This place is great, highly recommend if you want to be in a beautiful house located in the most convenient area. Daniel is the perfect host, very helpful and generous.

    J2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Really stylish and eclectic house. Felt very much at home there and loved the neighbourhood. Lots of restaurant choices and a bar basically next door. Daniel was great, really enjoyed sharing the space with him. He was super accommodating. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to feel at home in Colombo.

    Ryan2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Daniel's place is home away from home. The house has such a warm aesthetic touch to every nook and corner. His home is like a treasure trove of all things antique. Another highlight is the collection of a wide range of books. A great host, peaceful ambiance and perfect location! We highly recommend his place for people visiting Colombo.

    Vidya2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • This place is a real home and the room I’ve stayed felt like this too - it felt very welcoming and comfortable as well as conveniently and practically organized, which is often different in the places that are for guests only, but here everything was thought through. Thank you very much for the wonderful stay!

    Marija2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • This is our first trip to Sri Lanka. Daniel place was a perfect start to experience the culture and Sri Lankan style of living in Colombo. His place is an artistic built and filled with books and morning views to sit and sip coffee. He has taken care of each and every detail in hosting us. Always up and happy to answer any queries we had. Being away from the main city is more a pro than a con. Very accessible by Uber, the place gives you an experience of real Colombo apart from the touristy experiences. The kitchen in the house is neatly managed and there are separate drawers to keep your things. Guests have access to the fridge as well. Rooms are neat and clean and beautifully designed. Would surely recommend Daniel's place with a big smile.

    Raj2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Stylish and cozy house with great common space which made me feel truly at home. Great host with whom I can share a lot of informative and meaningful conversations. Will definitely come back whenever I’m in Colombo.

    Phuong2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful, quaint little place in the heart of Colombo. It has a lovely decor with some rather interesting furniture, artifacts and books. Close to almost everywhere you'd want to go in the city. Daniel was super friendly and accommodating, even helping me check-in a little later than usual. There is a kitchen where you can cook if needed, a kettle and coffee in the room, and a nice airy seating area and balcony. Loved the place, great location and value.

    Vivek2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Really fantastic....had such a great stay... Daniel Was very patient with us ,we had all the amenities as promised.... infact exceeded our expectations...such a beautiful house filled with antics... would definitely recommend

  • Ranjits place is spacious and comfortable, in a very good area surrounded by Embassys. It is a quiet location but convenient for shops, restaurants and the city. Siba, the housekeeper, is very pleasant and eager to please, she is also a very good cook. The food is vegetarian.

    James2020-04-03T00:00:00Z
  • An oasis of genteel calm and greenery in the crazy city Colombo has become. The house is beautiful, on a private road and just off the interesting Torrington Avenue. There are clean green walks nearby but also convenient transport to various areas. Bambalapitiya is an easy bus ride away and Tuktuks are available metres away to take you anywhere. Make time to enjoy the delicious food cooked by the lovely housekeepers who both speak English and are there for whatever you need. The rooms are comfortable and clean but not modern. The bathrooms and decor are charmingly dated - so much nicer than the bland modern flats on offer. I can recommend Ranjit’s house and it would be perfect for a group of friends or two couples. I look forward to returning soon.

    Susan2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • The place is really nice for the start of traveling Sri Lanka. The green garden gives a good impression of the nature of the country. The breakfast, which you can get from the neighbor siva is really good. I can recommend you stay some nights here. We will come back!

    Oskar2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • the charming style of these apartments from the fifties is generous and pleasant. the old house in the garden is also wonderful in terms of architecture and equipment. the two ladyes are very friendly and helpfull. thank you! i can recomand this host 100%

    Georgia2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • This was a perfect place to stay for our first couple of nights in Sri Lanka. Quiet, clean, friendly and a 15min Tuk Tuk to Colombo Fort Station. Would certainly recommend and would happily me back again.

    Eric2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • I recommend this place to you! The location is quiet and the house is beautiful. The host is exceptional and the food is super good. No need to take a tuk tuk to get to the temples. It's a 30 minute walk that allows us to walk through the streets of Colombo in safety. On the other hand, the network is slow and the lack of air conditioning makes the rooms warm (luckily the fan was there). I really recommend this accommodation. You will not forget your experience!

    Flavie2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Ranjit's house is very conveniently located to Central Colombo. It is in a quiet area and a tuktuk ride from many food choices. The house itself is interesting in its decorations, it feels very homey. I would suggest asking for the breakfast, it is delicious and ample.

  • Isuru is thorough gentleman and willing to help you out there with spots to visit and navigation. I recommend his place if you're looking for a convenient and not expensive accomodation.

    Mayur2019-11-15T00:00:00Z
  • We spent one night at Isuru’s place and it had everything we needed. It was well located in town for the activities we wanted to do. There are a few flights of stairs to climb to get to the unit and all the neighbours are lovely and helpful with directions. Isuru was also very lovely and helpful, he responded quickly to questions sent by message or call. If you are a traveller that wants to spend all your time in a room, bring your own entertainment, it wasn’t a negative for us.

  • Excellent place to stay in Colombo for a day or two. It's simple, but kept clean and in the center of the city. Great value for money.

You can also use a large kitchen and a large living room, and a refrigerator, a microwave, and a kettle. All available, located 3 minutes from the small sea train, surrounded by keels and cargos and also a big mall, good location, worth recommending

  • We had a very good stay at Roma’s place. The host provided us with very useful information prior to, and during our stay, and was very quick to respond to our queries. They were also very helpful when it came to us making a last minute change to our travel plans. We appreciate their thoughtfulness!

    Andrew2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Sumith, the caretaker, was ready & waiting for us when we arrived. He gave us a brief tour around the place & made sure I got his number as he expected we would be tired after our 5 hour journey. Whenever we went out in the morning, Sumith would be there to greet us & also calls us around dinnertime to make sure we know how to get back from where we were at. Even though we only had a short stay, Sumith really made it an amazing one :)

    Elaine2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Our experience has been great! The host was super helpful as we had to check in early morning and he totally helped us out with that. Nice and cozy apartment, it was just enough for two of us. Not far from downtown, lots of tuk-tuks just by the house. We highly recommend this host and his apartment!

    Vitalii2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • A compact, comfortable and centrally located apartment in Colombo 3. It's a vibrant, bustling neighbourhood in the city, but the apartment block is blissfully quiet and peaceful such that one can relax and unwind after a long day's exploring. Includes all the essential household amenities one may need during your stay - including a washing machine, drying rack and iron/ironing board - all of which come in quite handy if you've been travelling across several countries for a while or plan to stay in Sri Lanka longer than a few days. Easily accessible by UberEats drivers if you're in the mood for some takeout, plus only a short Uber ride to some great local restaurants (Park Street Mews), as well as a trendy bar at the Galle Face Hotel (King of the Mambo) where one can enjoy the most beautiful sunset over the ocean (with a more Cuban vibe than anything I experienced in my visit to Havana earlier this year!). The main Colombo Fort railway station is also a relatively short tuk-tuk ride away if you're keen to catch a train to Kandy or highway bus to Galle. or All in all, highly recommended.

    Rochelle2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Nice appartment in nice neighbourhood! Would definitely stay there again

    Reiner2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • This place has a fantastic location and is well equipped for a stay in Colombo. One thing to note is that there is a frosted door to the bedroom that has a light outside that stays on all night. Not a huge issue but worth knowing about. We would definitely stay here again, Roma was responsive and available when we had questions.

    Brooke/Shanesh2019-12-19T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed at Roma’s for almost 2 weeks while on a work trip. The flat was clean and comfortable, having the big living space and kitchen was a big plus. As was the aircon! In addition, Roma and Manu were very helpful when I needed anything. Flat is in a good central location with a small store 2 mins round the corner for essential!

    Cassandre2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • A brilliant place for a stopover in Colombo. Conveniently located 10 minutes away from the railway station so it is perfect if you want to catch a train to elsewhere the next day. The 2 boys who take care of the place are very nice and will attend your needs promptly. Breakfast was great as well too! Towel is actually not included in the price you pay but you can get one for only 50LKR so its all good!

  • Receptionists were fabulous and so very helpful. Great to have postcards on the desk too. The breakfast was more than I could ask for and was simply delicious. A great spread to choose from. Also, the soap and shampoo in the bathroom was a good surprise! The train station it a short 10 minute walk and some good shops around the corner. I don’t expect anything more from a hostel!

  • We had a comfortable stay at Francesca’s place. She was flexible and checked us in at an odd hour. The place is located in a great central location, and I will recommend this place if you’re planning to stay in Colombo for a few nights. All amenities are available in the house - from a hair dyer to an iron. Great, warm host who made us feel at home. Absolutely recommended!

    Double En-Suite Room with parking available in a newly build house. These luxurious rooms are fully serviced by a maid, so will be cleaned and made up daily. There is the option for breakfast, lunch and dinner being prepared for an additional charge, as well as a laundry and ironing service. En-Suite bathrooms have been finished to a high standard and the whole house and rooms are clean throughout. Rooms available for daily basis or long term. Very good location to access to Colombo.
    Clean, bright and spacious and furnished to high standards. It is located in a residential part of Colombo (Capital of Sri Lanka). There are some typical Sri Lankan shops at the top of the road, (grocery store, hardware store, takeaway, etc). It is very easy to hail a Tuk Tuk from the road at the top of the lane. Although house is in capital ( Colombo );During the day, Monkeys occasionally visit us and can be seen playing around! Small fluffy squirrels (who can be a bit noisy at times! Squeaking and chirping all day long) If you are lucky, you may even see some fireflies! We have a beautiful Buddhist temple 2 min walk from the property. Anybody is welcome to visit, you can see the magnificent Bodhi tree, statues of Buddha, relax, meditate or just have some fresh air.
    It is very residential area.
  • It was a nice place, was not hard to find.. had a bit of parking as well.. which was great!

    Sachith2020-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • I had a great stay there! Very friendly, the house ist quiet and clean. I definitely recommend it!

    Gemma2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Im so happy to have found this awesome place. Where to begin...The pictures do show some of the class this place holds, but not all of it. Super hostess Kaumudi has done a terrific job in designing the house tastefully in bright colors and luxoriuos details. It holds all the things you need for a short or long term stay. It is truely a lovely feeling to open the door to this relaxing, tranquille, sparkling clean and inviting place after a day in the hot and busy capital. Contrasts indeed. The house has a beautiful garden with flowers and mango trees , kept away from the trafficnoice. Truely an oasis. You can easily catch a tuk tuk to Colombo from the street right outside and there you'll find convenient stores as well. Kamala is the sweet housekeeper who will make sure that your stay is nothing but great. The kitchen is lovely and well equipped, which makes cooking easy and fun. Unless you would want Kamala to cook up a delicious Lanka meal. Kaumudi! There's no limit for her personal interest from the moment you contact her. She stays close in contact all through your stay to make sure you are happy as her guest. She has provided me remarkable service and I have felt so taken care of. My month in Colombo would not have been the same anywhere else and this will always be my number one choice when heading this way. Thank you for everything!!

    Magdalena2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Really great stay! Everything you see is what you get, really comfortable beds and home in general. Fast wifi and chilled water was always reliable. Rain shower was amazing! Kaumudi is really accomodating and Kamala is great company! The option for food was also nice. Stayed here for a week before moving to the other room. Both rooms are great!

    Ninoshka2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great space with comfort and luxury. Bathroom is very well done with amazing fittings. We really enjoyed the design features and Sri Lankan breakfast.

    Sanjaya2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • I've never met a host more nicer, kinder, and hospitable than Kaumudi on Airbnb in my more than dozen stays on Airbnb.

    Varun2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Had the most pleasant stay here, Kamala looked after me so well like her little sister and I think her hospitality and delicious cooking is what made me feel at home. The place is actually spotless and stunning. Kamala is someone I’ll definitely miss and we somehow got by speaking in tamil and some broken English. Would definitely come to stay there again!

    Anchana2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • The house has a lovely kitchen, along with a friendly maid who is happy to help with arranging meals. The room itself is as it appears in the photos - clean, modern and with a good air conditioner, which is always great. Kaumudi was also helpful and quick to respond to any query. I would definitely stay here again.

    The College House Home of A Dancer is a history-filled guesthouse with five individually priced private double bedrooms (each room has to be booked separately), 3 kilometres from Fort. It is the home of a famous Sri Lankan Dancer. It is located at the closest point to the International Airport Highway which is 15 mins away close to the Sugathadasa Stadium and Kotahena, Colombo 13 on one side. On the other side, It is by the Colombo Port on the Northside of Colombo by the Port.
    The colonial house was the home and dance school of a famous Sri Lankan dancer in the 1950-70s. The house is airy, spacious and relaxing. The beautiful original features of the College House are the tiled roofs and Burma teak wood. The house is arranged in a simple, eco-friendly manner, surrounded by a beautiful tropical garden and high walls. It is an oasis in the busy city in the midst of local colour and flavour. The neighbourhood is ethnically mixed reflected by the proximity of some of Colombo's ancient places of worship starting with the oldest 300-year-old Buddhist temple in Colombo. Colombo largest Cathedral, St Lucia's and Hindu temples are within walking distance.
    Situated of the Srimath Ramanathan Road on one side and Kotahena on the other side, College House is on the north side of Colombo, easily assessable from the airport a further 25km north, yet only minutes away in a tuk-tuk from downtown Pettah and Fort (where you will find Fort Train Station and Central Bus Stand for transport to anywhere on the island). Pettah is one of the most vibrant and colorful parts of Colombo, known for its bustling open air bazaars and markets. Each thoroughfare has its own speciality (for example, Gabo’s Lane and 5th Cross St specialise in Ayurvedic medicines). Pettah and Kotahena are also the most ethnically mixed parts of the city. Literally minutes from the guesthouse you will find streets dotted with several interesting Buddhist Temples, Christian Churches, Hindu Kovils and Islamic Mosques. Kotahena is a neighbourhood to give you an authentic local experience. The area is bustling, lively and colourful. The shops are open late into the night and everyone should sample the delicious street food (dosas, hoppers, kottu etc). The house itself is on a residential street (College Street). The harbour lights are visible and the markets of Main Street are close-by. The Dutch Museum on Prince Street, The Shiva Temple, and one of the oldest Buddhist Temples in the city are all within walking distance.
  • 10 stars out of 10 Warm, thoughtful, helpful and brainy hosts. Sweet housekeeper who makes the best Sri Lankan food .. lovely room in beautiful house. All my compliments,

    Abdelilah2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • A delightful home that captures much of the hidden charms of old Colombo tucked away in the back streets of Colombo is a hidden diamond. Kamal is a delightful host who has seen the changing face of Colombo and entertains with a wide ranging history of the changing history of Sri Lanka and Colombo. A great value stay with a good breakfast that was my last night in this wonderful country.

    Katrina2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Even though I only stayed for one night - the experience has been wonderful and I will definitely come back to this place if in Colombo. The room was just the right size, shower had such lovely smelling shower gel - felt like I’m in an almond heaven. Every detail very well thought through and no extra unnecessary cluster.. The location is great and of course the kumbuk cafe downstairs makes a perfect combo!

  • Srilax is a very nice place. The room is very clean, modern and the interior is brand new. The bed is very comfy. A part of Srilax is a coffee shop. They have delicious food and great coffee. We had a perfect time in the accommodation. Eventhough it is stated differently in the airbnb insertion, breakfast was not included. But we got a 10% discount :)

    Rohan2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Faazil is an amazing host, responding within minutes to every message we sent him. He arranged airport pickup which made our nighttime arrival seamless, and was there to greet us to show us the space. He provided toothpaste, shampoo and coffee which was not expected and very thoughtful. The space is incredibly well located (across the street from the gorgeous Galle Face hotel but a fraction of the price!) Faazils room is spacious, very clean and has a well working air conditioner! Hot water made the shower pleasant as well. Would definitely stay again! Also noted: would recommend Muheez, his driver who also took us to Sigirya. Such a nice and pleasant man!

    Laura2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • This place was clean, modern and in a convenient location, also had more amenities than we needed for the two night we stayed. Faazil’s hospitality was outstanding by providing great local tips on food and where to visit, he was also quick with responses which made our whole experience stress-free and easy! Faazil was even kind enough to help arrange our airport transfer in short notice without a fuss. I highly recommend this place if you’re looking for somewhere to stay in Colombo!

  • If you want a place to stay right in the heart of Colombo's tourist district, this is a place to go and a good value for your money!

    Johan2019-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • The communication and all arrangements with the hosts were flawless - they were always online, responding immediately. The location of the apartment is superb - just a few minutes walk from the Galle Face Hotel and a mall, plus the place itself is just as it was it the photos. The bedroom is really nice and spacious, with a very comfortable bed. I will stay at the apartment again gladly, on a following trip to Colombo.

  • I lived for nearly 4 months in Kalinga's house. I became part of the family and had a very good time. It was like a home for me far away. Also, the caretaker Radjudeen did his job great well. I´m very happy to found this wonderful place in Colombo. As I had my surfboard accident Kalinga stayed with me in the hospital what is also not naturally. Thank you so much Michael

    Michael2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • The property description mentioned is very accurate and you get what is mentioned. Also the house keeper Rajuddin is very helpful if you need anything and is just a bell away. The amenities are satisfactory, but just lack a bit in cleanliness. Otherwise 5 Stars

    Taha2019-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic host, I would like to stay again, I would like to say that other guests to stay Mr Kalinga ji hospitality

    Hetvee2019-05-02T00:00:00Z
  • This is my second visit to Srilanka and so did I stayed at Kalinga’s place for second consecutive time. This time it was an emergency visit and he arranged everything less than 24 hrs. Even provided a airport pickup. Kalinga and wife are outstanding hosts and their knowledge about surroundings made life easier when you trying to visit places in Srilanka, especially Colombo area. If u want to visit srilanka, it’s the most convenient and affordable place in town.

    Dihan2019-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • It is just like from home to home. Sue and Kalinga are very kind. They care about me and help me making perfect plan to visit Colombo. Just like my brother and sister. I enjoy to stay with them. The house is beautiful and the room is very comfortable. Also the breakfast is good. I will be back. Thank you very much.

    Stella2019-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Convenient location. Excellent hospitality. Very good facilities for a reasonable price.

    Sarath2018-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • I'm so glad about selecting Mr. Kalinga’s place. Although he is my second Airbnb host he is far better than the first. Sad that I couldn't stay there not more than three days but I plan to come back again very soon.

We communicated regularly before and during our trip and Dilshan was extremely helpful. The apartment is clean and is exactly as the pictures show. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and it was a great introduction to this beautiful country!

    Lavonca is a luxurious boutique hotel located in the heart of Colombo. It is adorned with unique furniture and world-class amenities to offer you unmatched comfort at an affordable price. The rooftop that overlooks the busy streets of Colombo provides the perfect ambience to unwind. Lavonca with its 10 rooms and intimate setting is the ideal haven for both modern and business travellers. Lavonca also dwells with a unique roof-top pool and a sun terrace with the city view of more than 180°.
  • We’ll put it plain and simple: Lavonca is a great place to stay if you want to spend a few days in CMB. What we liked best, is the location: right in the heart of the city but in a silent and nice little neighborhood. Rooms are clean and comfortable and staff is friendly and hospitable. On the roof top you’ll find a small pool with some beds. Great to have a cool down after discovering the city. One small thing: if you have trouble climbing stairs, you might want to ask for a room on the first floor. Lavonca has 4 floors ( pool ares is on the 4th) but no elevator. No problem for us but good to know for those who are less able to climb stairs maybe.

    Lot2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Really fantastic staff, very good breakfast, clean nice room. We didn’t spend any time in the shared rooftop as the pool was very small and it was busy. It doesn’t look quite as nice as the photos but overall still a great stay. Slightly quieter area. Easy to Uber/tuk tuk anywhere which is too far to walk.

    Phoebe2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was great, responsive staff.

    Евгений2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great hotel in a central location. Even though we arrived a little earlier than planned, we were immediately able to check in. We were on our honeymoon and got a heart of roses on the bed, great! The stay was rounded off by the great staff, who were always super friendly and of course the pool on the roof terrace! A little more expensive but definitely worth the trip! Many thanks for everything Palmi and Eric

  • Leonard went out of his way to help us as my wife was not feeling well. We would definitely stay again. Clean and modern.

    Wayne2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • This boutique hotel is perfect for a short or perhaps even a longer stay in Colombo. The location is also perfect with many good restaurants nearby. The room was super clean and modern. We enjoyed the pool which was large enough to cool off in (although the water is quite warm) after a long day of walking around. The breakfast was delicious with the staff being very attentive and friendly. The staff also provided tips for getting around and could answer just about all your questions. Security is good too, with full time staff there onsite. A great value in our opinion.

    I rent the whole place, guests need to self check-in/out.My place is situated in suburbs of Colombo in a historical town Kotte, an ancient kingdom of Sri Lanka. the loft has been attracted by many travelers as a transit hub for who are traveling down south of the island or come to Colombo for visa extension office. Lovely place with only one entrance and small private garden. its not a luxury place. airport pickup and trasnsport can be arrged.
    While you stay at my place its easy to access Mount Lavinia and Dehiwela golden sand beaches, tuk tuk ride (less than 5 US$). Wallawatha Hindu Kovils, Colombo fort , Colombo Museum, Dutch hospital shopping center, Odel Shopping center. Basically ideal place to walk around Colombo for a city tour by Tuktuk Etc This is a very convenient and peaceful place with a nice small garden to relax with kitchen for cooking and Supermarket and food restaurants are in walking distance. also a washing machine and a working place with Wifi
    The region is very residential area in proximity to the Immigration office, Waters Edge Hotel, Diyawanawa Lake, Wetland park for birds watching in the morning, Kotte Museum, Kotte historical Buddhist temple "Raja Maha Vihara".
  • Very good Airbnb we recommend it, value for money at the top and Yasiru very good Host! Tip: sweep after each meal and keep the food cool

    Maryne2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment and its garden is so lovely. It's next to the mainstreet but it's super quiet. Keels, busstop and restaurants are in walking distance. The kitchen is pretty small but equipped with everything you need to cook your own food. It also includes a water filtration. Yasiru is a really caring and pleasant host. My boyfriend got sick during the stay and he helped us out finding a good hospital and pharmacies and let us stay longer in his apartment. I really recommend the stay. Thanks Yasiru

    Rahel2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • This is our second time at Yasiru's place. It's very conveniently located close to the immigration office. A cute studio comfortable enough for a few days stay!

  • Priyanka has a nice place, with an impressive kitchen and bathroom. The supermart is just 5-7 mins walking and you can get local transport easily. She has plenty of suggestions for eateries already placed in the apartment for your comfort.

    Nishmeet2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Priyanka's place is affordable and as advertised. She was very polite and even helped us out when our driver couldn't find her place. I would definitely recommend a stay here!

She has also kept the pamplets ofvarious restaurants just in case someone wants to order food from out. We had a wonderful stay at her place.

    Rimple2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • The Place is actually a " Stunning Apartment". Before we actually checked In, we were under the Impression that it would be like any other apartment, but were surprised when we got into the place. An immaculately & aesthetically kept place with all the Amenities that can be called " HOME ". Super Clean & well kept. Nice sitting area with Sofa & Loads of Local Magazines to read all about Srilanka. Menu's from different Local Restaurants to call & order food, a Fridge, Toster, Hot water kettle, microwave, gas oven & full set of cutlery. Cozy Bedroom & those Lil Teddies On the bed was so thoughtful of the Host, who knew that Me & My Daughter were travelling & it added a sense of emotional touch. The bedroom was well lit with Sunlight during the day & nice lights to deck up the Evenings. The room had a TV with Satellite connection & AC. The Bathroom was big, clean & well equipped. The Host helped us with local guidance to go to all the various place that we had intended & also helped us with various shopping destinations. Over all " Priyanka JI" is an absolute Lovably & Super Host. Look forward to staying back on our next visit. Thanks Shirin & Soumendu

    Soumendu2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • We had a very good stay at Priyanka's place, it is very nice and clean and communication was easy. Her brother was right next door and made sure we had everything we needed. Definitely recommended

    Peter2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Priyanka's place was fantastic. It was comfortable and close to convenient shops and some great restaurants, there was a pharmacy and supermarket in shot walking distance and some tuk tuks hung out by the very end of the street from very early in the morning, enabling us to take our 6am train from a Colombo to Trincomalee with no issues at all! Communication was prompt and excellent, and what with Priyanka's home being attached to her holiday home she was just next door if we needed anything at all. She offered a laundry service for just 500 SLR per basket (under £2) and turned our washing around in 1 day. Highly recommend! Thank you so much!xx

    Safe, Complete privacy, cozy, cool and clean room with cleaning service and seperate entrance to the rest of the house and to the outside and is close to restaurants and transport. It is in Colombo 5 a highly residential area and is close to the warm Indian Ocean and center of Colombo. Air conditioning is available on request at an extra cost. There is a small in house cafe, serving breakfast from 8-11 and snacks and drinks thereafter to 6pm
    One of the safest neighborhoods in Colombo. The room is housed on the ground floor of a three storied house at the end of a quiet leafy cul de sac in central Colombo. It has a separate entrance whereby you do not have to go through the rest of the house to enter or leave. The room is cool and cozy and is equipped with wireless wifi day and night. Air conditioning is available for an extra cost. Your private bathroom has hot and cold water and a shower. The lane has a lush tropical feel to it with sightings of all kinds of beautiful birds like the paradise flycatcher, the golden oriole, woodpeckers, kingfishers, Cuckoo's etc. On occasion the grey languar monkeys can be seen jumping from tree to tree and over rooftops adding to the feeling that you are really in the tropics. It has an exercise bike. The lane is centrally located and has excellent transport facilities i.e. Cheap taxis, buses and the train stations Bambalapitiya and Narahenpita are not far. Downtown Colombo is a short taxi ride away, including the museum. The best way to get around is by tuk tuk taxi, budget taxi or bus. The Uber ap and the local Pickme ap should be downloaded onto your phone and used. Taxis are fairly cheap in Colombo.
    There is easy access to all amenities like restaurants, shops, supermarkets, restaurants, banks, churches, temples, hospitals and although in the city the lane is a quiet residential cul-de-sac with a strong tropical feel. Good area for pavement walks. The Buddhist temple Isipatanaramaya which is within walking distance has beautiful paintings and a serene setting. I can recommend the local Sri Lankan restaurant, the pizza house, authentic Chinese and Thai restaurants, the Japanese restaurant, the donor kebab restaurant. There is also a Pizza Hut, McDonalds and Kentucky Fried Chicken nearby, There are several pastry shops nearby as well serving breads and pastries that have evolved from the different nationalities that have come to this island over centuries as Sri Lankan short eats! Not far from the National Museum, cinemas, downtown, etc
  • Shaniya is very kind and her room is very beautiful, its style reminds of the 30s of the past century... I really appreciated that. Good comunication... Thanks Shaniya

    Christian2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Shaniyas house is really such a warm and lovely place to stay. The house is beautifully designed and immediate when you enter you feel there’s a good soul. The room is really comfortable, big and silent. You have your own bathroom and there is a lot of privacy, although you’re staying in Shaniyas own house. The hospitality of Shaniya is so warm and real! She knows of all the good places in the city and can take you everywhere if you want, but if you want to do you’re own thing it’s also fine. She can make you excellent coffee and breakfast or other snacks. And let’s not forget about her cute dog Sealy! One of the cuties dogs alive! Go here if you want to get the know the real Colombo!

    Kim2020-02-26T00:00:00Z

    Liam2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • I’ve stayed in Shaniya’s great house a total of 18 or 19 days over 6 weekends. This was during two trips to Sri Lanka. I have stayed in both of the rooms listed here. The house is located down a quiet street in the middle of Colombo. There aren’t many such streets there anymore! Shani is a great hostess! The rooms are comfortable, with comfy beds and all the amenities you’d want. Free access to the kitchen (great coffee). Mosquito nets as well. One room is air conditioned )for an extra charge), but I didn’t need it. Shani took me around Colombo which she knows very well. There are plenty of restaurants nearby including a grocery store. Handmade ladies shoes if you’re into that sort of thing. And an auction house for fun. Transportation is easy: walk up to the main road and hail a tuk-tuk. Make sure it has a meter! All in all, I recommend very highly Shani and her lodgings!

    Brenda & Ajith2020-02-02T00:00:00Z

  • Shaniya's house is one of the best Airbnbs we stayed in. It's a really interesting space with a huge tree in the center. We stayed for one night and Shaniya took us to an amazing restaurant close by. It's a shame we couldn't stay longer. Definitely recommend this gem.

  • Isuru is the best host! He replies super quickly, has tons of knowledge about the area, great recommendations and more! The location is absolutely great and really central - suggest downloading Uber or PickMe for easy travel around the city. I'd happily stay at Isuru's place again when I am next in Colombo!

  • Despite the fact that we made an emergency reservation, we were not disappointed. The apartment is very well located. The owner and the neighborhood are also very helpful!

  • Budget friendly and is located as a 10 minute walk from everything. Very helpful with transportation after a late night flight from airport, and most importantly... great communication ! Answered all my questions within 5 minutes via text. :)

  • I loved staying at Arjuna's place. The house is spotless, the room spacious and the breakfast delicious! The location is very quiet, yet close to the main attractions. Would return!

  • Accessible to tourist destinations.

  • A great base for Colombo. We stayed just a night to recover from our flight, but it was just what we needed: well located, clean and with charming and helpful hosts

    Andrew2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Really lovely place to stay with great people and fantastic food. Highly recommend.

    Chris2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • At the end of our three-week trip through Sri Lanka, we spent two nights in the accommodation of Arjuna and his wife - luckily! The little house is a quiet retreat in the middle of the metropolis Colombo. The welcome was warm, the room very clean and many sights within walking distance. Both of us were very accommodating both in terms of price and check-out. We felt very comfortable!

    Felix2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Another great stay with Arjuna and family in a great location with great hospitality

    Hannah2020-01-18T00:00:00Z

    Hannah2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Arjuna and his family were great hosts and their place was very conveniently located! We missed our train to our next destination and thankfully they were able to arrange alternative transportation for us. Thank you again for your help and your hospitality!
