Great location, very central

Old world ambience, helpfulness of staff was great, close to good cafe further down the road on same block
Two main issues. 1. Mix up with Agoda booking, hotel had no knowledge of my booking. Fortunately I had a printout of the Agoda voucher so they honoured my voucher but some other poor guest arriving later had to found a room elsewhere. 2. Wifi was intermittent and unreliable

overally a good stay....very conveniently located

Overall a good stay. The guest house has a lot of character and old features that the owner has maintained even after renovation. The place is very conveniently located which is why I chose it.☺we stayed in the "pavillion" room in the top floor.the rooms are of a good standard although a little outdated. The staff were very obliging and provided a good standard of service. They were polite and courteous. Cleanliness however could be worked on. The beds and bed linen were clean however, The door knobs, room corners , television etc were caked with layers of grimy dust. The phone was a breeding haven for bacteria. The phone was actually quite disgusting. The bathroom needs a major overhaul. Very old and loose fittings...no ventilation at all...not very clean either. The bath tub had black spots and a grimy disgusting drain. The shower basin hadnt been cleaned ..u could see the oily grime on the sides of the basin...plus the shower basin had a clogged up drain. Generally...this place is good for a quick stop in colombo.

What a lovely Place!

Krishna, the owner and the ambience
What a lovely place. It was like a home stay. Unfortunately I did not book for all my time in Colombo and missed out on my last day, but the owner happily found a substitute maybe not quite as good as 5th Lane but it did the job. Food was great and Krisna looked after me very well.

Too expensive for what you get

The rooms looks nice
Yes the room looks nice, but that's about as far as I would go. Location is a bit strange in a alley 15 min away from city centre. Staff is helpfull but you litterly need to ask for everything: towels, blanket (they dont have ?!), toilet paper, to switch the fridge on all does not seem to be a standard given but you have to ask for it. We were looking forward to use the hot tub but the staff told it did not work for over a few months, however they advertise it as it was next to our room. They did a goob job making the room & hotel look nice, but when you look closer many things are missing or not working and it's just no worth the price. Overall dissapointing

Great Staff and Service

The hotel is convenient to central Colombo. The staff are friendly and efficient and the room was expansive and well serviced.
I enjoyed my stay at 5th Lane House and have reserved a room for my return to Colombo. I would recommend the hotel to anyone wanting affordable accommodation in Colombo.
