I come back again before left Sri Lanka
Good for stay 1 night or 2 Maximum ”
The place is located in the heart of the city & everything is nearby around in just walking distance... overall staffs attitude is good & WiFi is very slow & they maintain the average standard clean process plus some issues with hot water & I hope they will fix it as soon as passible thanks
Very good budget option”
We got an AC room with balcony for just $17. The room was clean & nice and bed comfortable. No TV in room and slow wifi but those things did not bother us. Very friendly staff, mostly foreign guests and location was near a bus line running to downtown. Breakfast was good and worth the price.
Awesome experience. Very caring and friendly staff specially Mr Shaun he makes you feel at home ”
No cons if there was a microwave it would have been excellent
okay room, terrible staff ”
The room was clean and as described. Price is great for location. The person working the front desk put us in a room next to a loud party. He allowed guests who were not staying at the location to have a loud birthday party. They were inches away from our window, screaming, playing music and banging on furniture. We were informed the party would stop by 10pm. This was not the case. We had to walk outside past the party goers to find the host downstairs watching TV and ask him to please move us into another room. He finally decided to shut the party down which took another 20 minutes of us waiting to get back into our room. He also refused to give us the wifi password for the common area and said we can only use the Wi-Fi on the floor we were staying.
easy to get around”
location is off main roads but easy to go to any sight attractions with bus 101 and 102. we took bus from airport and at the fort main station took a 101. nice neighbourhood and quiet compare to the chaotic fort area. furniture is quite new and modern. very clean.
Very Mixed Impression”
Other travellers and we arrived at 4:30 am, haven given prior notification. The staff person resented us coming at that time and was so unfriendly. As we were tired after 6 hours travel we retired to a very clean but pokey room on the top level. We got into bed when a loud motor started up. If it had been a consistent sound we may have gotten accustomed to it - but it wasn't! The motor came on for 10 seconds, switched off for ten, then came back to life ten seconds later. After half an hour of no sleep, I went down the many stairs to ask for a different room. Again the staff person was resentful and this time, rude. He told me to go upstairs and knock off two switches near the room. He told me he didn't want to be disturbed because he had to wake up early. Two days later I went to have a shower and there was no water in either the basin or shower. The staff person was contacted. He eventually came upstairs and now the water came on. He actually accused me of lying!
Very efficient hard working manager - Shawn. Only setback is with residents who are loud well into the night with no consideration for fellow residents trying to sleep. There should be a sign advising guests to be quiet after 11pm.
Very helpful staff, good location if you need to sort out Indian visa, very clean new room. The only downside is the ongoing construction, though it doesn't start too early and ends at 6pm. Supermarket nearby. You can use the communal kitchen.
I was not expecting such a nice, clean and spacious room with air conditioner at a low price that I paid”
We stayed in the dorm. The staff are always friendly and helpful if you need to know anything. They were so kind and picked us up last minute from colombo fort. Everything was very clean. The air con worked really well. The beds were really comfortable. Each bed has an international (three types of plug in one) plug socket and a lamp. We were given towels and our lockers were right beside our beds. There are two toilets, two showers and two sinks and the bathroom was very clean. The roof terrace was a nice area to chill out and meet other people. There is a kitchen you can cook in if you'd like, free tea. There's a common area downstairs with a TV too. It was a bit far from fort, but was walkable distance from all the shopping places that we wanted to visit. Perfect hidaway with a quiet environment. WiFi connection was very good even in the room. Breakfast was fresh and good, fully worth for $2.50 with unlimited toast etc. Had a great stay and recommend to all type of visitors.
Everything was perfect!
Everything was perfect.. enjoyed my stay here. Thank you!
Good location and nice staff”
Clean rooms and friendly staff
- No phone, small room size, Difficult to find the recharging point, very difficult to find the place - many stores close to hotel doesn't recognize the name, breakfast so expensive (500 rupees for 2 eggs and some toast). - Not advisable to stay this place. + Clean bathroom and hot water
Decent for one night ”
We stayed one night as we had to catch an early train to Kandy in the morning. If you’re planning to do the same, it’s a 15 minute tuk tuk drive to the station in the morning before the traffic starts. The place itself is okay. The shower was great, very hot and powerful. The man at reception booked us a tuk tuk for the morning. It was a little far from everything, is my only issue, so if you were staying a few days you’d want to stay nearer to the town.
Very good staying in Colombo”
The owner recommended me some good places, beautiful spots and point of interest in Sri Lanka. Staffs are very kind for guests. But, the floor was so dirty, and walking with bare feet got dirty on the sole of the feet black. It's just a weak point, I thought.
ok for a night.”
we took a double bed room with a private shower and toilet. because of all the moisture from the shouwer there was mould in the shouwer and a very unpleasant smeel in the room especially because there was no windows to open to get some fresh air. we got warned in advanced about the construction work at the building but we were surprised that it started at 6am !!
A wonderful place at the center of Colombo!”
Very helpful and kind staff. Visit again when in Colombo next time.
A very nice place to stay!”
The room looked exactly like in the photos, so you know what you're getting. The room was clean and tidy. The staff is great and very helpful! Would definitely stay here again!
Great Room good value for money. Would highly recommend
