            Cool place to stay. Mostly the hotel is very safe as they recommend to keep the main entrance always locked. The hotel is little old, but always clean. The manager or the owner Mr. Jhon is always available for your needs and very helpful.

            This is not a hotel.This is a jail!!!!!!!!!!We stayed here 2 today then I escaped here. Warning!!⚠️⚠️.Most of the comments and pictures on Facebook and booking is fake.I think they did it by themselves.This is fucking crazy.This hotel is tooooo much dirty.And you can only use your bed. Here is no WIFI!!Here is no hot water.Here is a balcony but they closed all the door!! All of the doors are too old and broken. The roof of platform is not open.They use roof to store rubbish and hang clothes out here. You can not use anything here. I just put my cup on their table. The Sri Lanka owner asked me for 5 dollars!! And he told me if I touch his table or sofa he will drive us away!!!!!! He is fucking crazy!!!!!! And you can not wash everything in this dirty house. They don’t allow to wash in toilet but they have 3 washing machine but we can not use. They only want money but they don’t want to work and clean. There are three trash can in front of the house and when you go out or go back you will feel the disgusting smell!!!!!!! Trust me. This is my worst experience in my lifetime for a hotel. Fuck them!! Fxk the fxking Sri Lanka pig. They never respect people. They only love money. Don’t go to the house. Please keep away from the house!!!!!!!!! Please!!!!!!!! I will tell everyone for this. It is a really bad experience for Sri Lanka. Fxk!!!!!!!!!!!

            We had a great stay. The room away from ocean was quiet and cosy. Bathroom to ourselves as we were the only guests on the day. Excellent coffee and big breakfast near also supermarkets. We arrived on a holiday so things were shut,but even then..if you are looking for a night in Colombo at value for your travel budget..room 4! This place is like having an apartment to yourself if not busy. Seriously the room at the back away from train and busy road if you want a good night's sleep.

            Get the room with ocean view, but shared bathroom. The view is really nice for sunset. The shared bathroom is only shared with one other room, so it's not really inconvenient. This is more like a house, with the owner lives next door, so its sometime very quiet and nobody at home.

There is also an excellent view of the ocean. It is a place definitely worth staying at if you want to be comfortable, explore Colombo, or have a relaxed getaway with someone you care about.

            Had spent a night in the standard double room with the garden view. Room was clean and was very quiet even though the property is next to a busy road. If you're okay with a shared bathroom I think this one of the best places to stay as it's so close to heart of Colombo.

            Lovely little gem!”
            Stayed at this location sort of on 'transit' as my friend's flight landed late at night and we were leaving for Kandy the following afternoon. Location is central enough to easily access key locations in Colombo, especially for a business traveler or even a tourist on a short visit. Even after our checkout time had passed, the management were very accommodating and kept our luggage safely while we were walking around Colombo. Rooms were impeccable and even though breakfast was not part of the booking I made, the location of the hotel gives ample access to find economic meals quite easily. The quality of the stay was worth the money we spent on the accommodation.
