      new staff / training required”

      Had to search for the reception area and was then met by a man who claimed to be the "caretaker". Don't know his name and don't care since we will not be using this hotel again. The original flat was on the top floor with no lift and bad lighting on the stairs. Smelt awful when we walked in and he told us that we would be moved to another room at 21:30 as someone was checking out at 21:00 ??? Room was a lot better and almost clean - had to ask for soap, then toilet paper and gave up after that. He did not give us the wifi password because we didn't ask for it - he was nowhere to be found and his assistant was pissed !!! Glad that there is a YOY Hotel nearby if we are in Colombo again. Get rid of the two clowns - don't think that retraining will help ...

      Budget option, if your requirements are not very high”

      It is an OK place for a few days. I spent 9 nights there, and it was not too bad. The bed was comfortable, I had a desk and a chair (the latter not really comfortable), a fridge and a balcony. The bathroom was large and had hot water. Wifi was working fine. If you want to visit the sights, you will have to use a tuk-tuk - who will be annoying you the moment you step out into the street. The problems: The towels were extremely dirty. I asked for a replacement, which was also dirty. I have no idea why they can't wash them properly. There were large cockroaches in the bathroom. I could only use the air conditioning from the second day, because they failed to give me the remote when I arrived at night. The kitchen that you can see in the photos is non-functional. It has a sink, but there is no water, actually not even pipes there, so it is perhaps a decoration only? I requested a kettle, which I got, so I used the kitchen for making coffee only. For this, no kitchen is necessary.

      For the price you can’t beat this place. It’s hard to find - really small sign. We arrived at 2:00 am and called the man and he let us in. Room needs a deep clean but it was fine for a 2 night stay. Reallllly big room with living area. Strong air con in bedroom but the bed is a bit small for 2 people. Also no toilet paper. The man wasn’t around to tell us the wifi password in the morning but saw him at a later time and he gave it to us

      The apartment located a walking distance from the city heart and 100 meter from the beach (it's a rocky one, as all the rest of the beaches in colombo) There is a good coffee shop just in the corner. the entry to the hotel is a bit dusty and full with junk, but the room is clean and nice, my total experience was very good and I really recommend this place.

      Place is good for a no-frill short stay in Colombo. It is quite centralised and convenient, near to Train Station and Liberty Plaza, a small shopping centre. Various eateries and fast food outlets (Burger King and McDonalds) are within a few minutes' walk. The apartment is basically furnished - sofa, bed, kitchenette, balcony, day bed, cable TV, air-con bedroom. Furniture can do with some upgrade and shower room need to clear the slight clog. I had a pleasant short stay of 2 nights. The keeper, Mr Kumar, was very friendly and accommodative. He appears to be always around when you need him. Wonder if he ever sleeps. Lol

      We came late evening, the owner was waiting for us. No toilet paper and towels in the apartment (you need to ask quickly before the owner disappear). Broken shower- this was a really disaster, after a very long trip there was almost no water coming from the shower and this fact we realized when the owner already dissappear... However there are also the advantages: good location- not very far from Colombo Fort Railway Station, good price and spacious room. .

      Great location, value for money choice.”

      We chose this place because it was relatively cheap compared to its location and surrounding hotels were at least twice as expensive. The rooms are large, although old-fashioned, but has all the basic requirements of an apartment - kitchen, fridge, hot water etc. Air-cond is functional. the best thing about the place though was how helpful the staff was. He would be available 24 hours, and will be able to help whenever possible. If you need some kind of negotiations, he would be available to help. it is really close by a busy street where bus and tuk-tuk can be found instantly, and food (McD, Burgerking) is also very near. great location.

The problems: The towels were extremely dirty. I asked for a replacement, which was also dirty. I have no idea why they can't wash them properly. There were large cockroaches in the bathroom. I could only use the air conditioning from the second day, because they failed to give me the remote when I arrived at night. The kitchen that you can see in the photos is non-functional. It has a sink, but there is no water, actually not even pipes there, so it is perhaps a decoration only? I requested a kettle, which I got, so I used the kitchen for making coffee only. For this, no kitchen is necessary.

      It was a wrong decision to book this place. Do not waste your money booking this place. I was looking a place to stay for few hours but the experience was so bad that I felt I have wasted money and time by booking the place.

      For the price you can’t beat this place. It’s hard to find - really small sign. We arrived at 2:00 am and called the man and he let us in. Room needs a deep clean but it was fine for a 2 night stay. Reallllly big room with living area. Strong air con in bedroom but the bed is a bit small for 2 people. Also no toilet paper. The man wasn’t around to tell us the wifi password in the morning but saw him at a later time and he gave it to us

      The apartment located a walking distance from the city heart and 100 meter from the beach (it's a rocky one, as all the rest of the beaches in colombo) There is a good coffee shop just in the corner. the entry to the hotel is a bit dusty and full with junk, but the room is clean and nice, my total experience was very good and I really recommend this place.

      Place is good for a no-frill short stay in Colombo. It is quite centralised and convenient, near to Train Station and Liberty Plaza, a small shopping centre. Various eateries and fast food outlets (Burger King and McDonalds) are within a few minutes' walk. The apartment is basically furnished - sofa, bed, kitchenette, balcony, day bed, cable TV, air-con bedroom. Furniture can do with some upgrade and shower room need to clear the slight clog. I had a pleasant short stay of 2 nights. The keeper, Mr Kumar, was very friendly and accommodative. He appears to be always around when you need him. Wonder if he ever sleeps. Lol

      The only good thing about this hotel was its location next to ocean.”

      The rooms were okay but the bed was small for 2 people. No food facility was provided. Rooms looked pretty old and the price was too high for the facilities. Even the building was not that big. Staff was okay but not that great and did not get a chance to meet owner.

We have been in two different apartments and both were amazing, nicely decorated and cozy. The kitchen was equipped with all you need for light meals and a fridge was also provided. We have enjoyed very much our staying and will surely come back next trip to Colombo. Than you very much

      We came late evening, the owner was waiting for us. No toilet paper and towels in the apartment (you need to ask quickly before the owner disappear). Broken shower- this was a really disaster, after a very long trip there was almost no water coming from the shower and this fact we realized when the owner already dissappear... However there are also the advantages: good location- not very far from Colombo Fort Railway Station, good price and spacious room. .

      Great location, value for money choice.”

      We chose this place because it was relatively cheap compared to its location and surrounding hotels were at least twice as expensive. The rooms are large, although old-fashioned, but has all the basic requirements of an apartment - kitchen, fridge, hot water etc. Air-cond is functional. the best thing about the place though was how helpful the staff was. He would be available 24 hours, and will be able to help whenever possible. If you need some kind of negotiations, he would be available to help. it is really close by a busy street where bus and tuk-tuk can be found instantly, and food (McD, Burgerking) is also very near. great location.

      No working internet, no towel, no toilet paper, no reception (apparently it's an apartment so it's self sufficient). No working air conditioning. I've never felt the need to review a place before until now. Look elsewhere.
