If you like quiet hotels...

staff, breakfasts, nearby beach
I had a fine stay at Ivory Inn! The air conditioning was great, the hot water was hot, and the water pressure was good. It's quiet and near the beach. I think they are in the midst of transitioning from a hostel to a hotel, so there is some painting that needs to be done along with the purchase of new mattresses and linens. However, I felt very comfortable even without those changes. I had a balcony, and the grounds are very pretty. As more of the staff practice their English, they will be ranked as super. There is good security with the gates watched during the day. At night, there is a watchman on the gates all night. I walked to the beach and nearby fast food places at night and felt safe. For the money, it is hard to beat. Small fridges in the rooms and tea kettles would be big hits, I think. I was there last month, so it was not crowded at all. It may change, but if they separate the young hostel crowd from seniors and families and add a greater variety of drinks and some snacks, I think their ranking will be rising soon. Some literature in the rooms on nearby restaurants and attractions would also be helpful, but the staff will try to answer any questions.

Nice, Cheap and Friendly

The staff were very friendly and nothing was too much, the outside area is really nice to chill out in the evening and the location close to the beach is great for Colombo.
Everything was as expected, although it is a little out of the way. Had a great chat with the owner/manager and his passion for the place really shone. If you're looking for cheap and friendly this is definitely the one! Close enough to Central Colombo for ease but the proximity to the beach is even better!

Helpful staff but noisy

Staff, food, location
Although a nice, good for your purse type of place with friendly staff a nearby disco in combination with only mosquito nets in front of the windows made it impossible to sleep.

Good location to the beach

Location, comfort chairs
Basic stay, value for money. Great location to the beach. Had to change rooms on second night due to no water in the shower. A/c was dripping water all night again had to change room. Staff friendly enough however no one available after 12am in case of emergency. Overall basic stay

Conveniently by the beach, Complimentary breakfast, Comfortable bed
The stay was okay, but not up to expectations. The Wi - Fi wasn't working the entire time. There wasn't hot water in the room. The staff didn't speak much English so it was difficult to ask for anything. The complimentary breakfast was good and the room was fairly comfortable.
