Run down
We found it very run down for the price, was not super clean either, Ok if you are used to roughing as a backpacker but we felt it was too expensive for what it was. Bed was not very comfy either. I would not stay again.

Good hotel but a little hard to find.
The owner, wi-fi, good bed
The owner was really nice and helped us with a lot of questions. Breakfast was simple but good. Bed was soft and had mosquito net. Hot shower and wifi were good. The hotel was a little hard to find. But if you tell the taxi or tuk-tuk driver to go to Dehiwala police station, go down on Fernando road (or any road next to the police station). Follow the road until it ends on Pallidora road. Take a left and you'll find the hotel on number 44. Easy as that.

friendly budget stopover
Cheap, knowledgeable owner was keen to converse, great to see local fruit in the garden
It was our first night in Sri Lanka and we had no idea what to expect. We had typed the address into google maps and were confident we could find our own way there from Fort Columbo using the train and a 3-wheeler. However, google maps has the location wrong so beware! The best thing to do would have been train (amazing views along coast) to Dehiwala (not Mount Lavinia) and then get a three wheeler (300lkr) to the guest house. Chaminda greeted us and was very conversational and accommodating during our stay. We appreciated the hot shower, were able to use the WiFi and enjoyed the breakfast provided. The room was large, had a ceiling and electric fan and an integrated bathroom. The bed was comfortable, but the general feel of the room/bed linen was a little rough-around the edges. Our only real issue was the location (we should have researched more). The guest house was along a long residential road which had barely any close amenities and as a female in my 30s, I would not have felt comfortable walking around at night. Had I been in the country longer at this point and had I been using transport to get around to areas with a little more life, I imagine this element of my review would be very different. The highlights of the stay were, by far, Chaminda showing us around his garden in the morning, sharing his knowledge of his country and the genuine Sri Lankan breakfast. In a capital city, you couldn't really expect much more the price we paid.

Great family who were very welcoming.
The Great Breakfast, Location, Reasonably Priced
Our stay at the Guest House was very pleasant. The owner was very helpful in organising trips / tuck tucks in and around the city. The breakfast was great every morning and never disappointed.

Comfortable, quiet stay in a residential area.
Cost, breakfast, Mr. C. helpfulness
The Chamenka Guest House is in a residential area of Dehiwela, south of Colombo, near Mt. Lavinia. If a person arrives by plane, they should make transfer arrangements through Mr. C. at the guest house. If they arrive at the Colombo central business terminal, they should call ahead for directions. There are some restaurants nearby, a grocery store, and Mr. C. can arrange for a reliable tuk tuk driver. Lavinia Beach is about 10 minutes away. AC is not necessary. A ceiling fan is sufficient. There is also a refrigerator and washing machine. If a person is heading south. Mr. C. has recently opened a house near the beach east of Galle. It's more for bird watchers than the beach crowd. Very quiet. Good for families. five minute walk to the beach and restaurant.
