    Good Location and Worth for the Money”

    We had a very good experience staying in this hotel (apartment). It was very quiet and parking (temporarily) was not a problem. The staff was very friendly, specially front desk staff who checked in us (I think his name was Niranjan) was very helpful. Very efficient A/C in the bedroom but when I was doing some work in the computer in the living room of the apartment and A/C didn't reach the living room that well. The king bed we had in the bedroom was very comfortable, soft and sturdy. The bathroom was also very good with hotwater, but sometimes some bad sewer smell came, I don't know whether it was through the drains or the open window in the bathroom. We had an electric kettle, cups, plates and nice tea bags and sugar, and I would have preferred if they had provided milk powder packets also. Overall we liked the stay and definitely we will stay there when we go back to Wellawatte.

    big apartment, clean, reasonable price.

    Big and simple equipped apartment. Small bathrooms and bedrooms but clean. We stayed in an apartment for 4 persons;1 bedroom with double bed, 2 bedrooms with singel bed, and 2 bathrooms. There is no washing machine in the apartment, you have to pay for using washing machine in the lobby. Nice staff.Reasonable price for a group. They also have apartment for 5 persons. We recommend hotel airport pick up service for a group of 4 with a lot of luggage because the airport taxis seem very small.

    Great value for money”

    Location, service and affordability

    Great! Great views of the ocean, quiet location, attentive staff. They made themselves available for a 2.30am check in! Highly recommend for anyone looking for a great place to start their Sri Lanka holiday. The only thing they are missing is information for holiday makers-I guess they are pretty new, so don't have the brochures etc-all good though, they were more than happy to try to help with anything we asked of them, such as trying the locate the price of hiring our own driver to take us around Sri Lanka

    A very comfortable stay in a quiet location.”

    Cozy, comfortable room, friendly helpful staff and nice quiet location

    The short stay was comfortable. Room was nice and smelled very clean through out. Staff was very friendly and helpful. At the moment the hotel is undergoing renovation and changes. As a result their are some shortfalls. However, that did not affect our stay much. Once the renovations are over, the hotel has potential to be one of the best in Colombo.

    Clean and neat but disappointing in some aspects”

    Plus Points : 1. Good location that is easily accessible. 2. Clean room and bathroom. 3. Flexible (they allowed early check-in) - Will give an extra star for just that. 4. Staff are courteous Minuses: 1. The double rooms are too small for comfort if you plan to stay more than a night or two. 2. No room service between 12:00pm and 6:00pm (in other words no lunch at times most people eat lunch) 3. Furniture is old and tacky (there was one wooden chair in the room which was quite uncomfortable - started having a sore back sitting on it and working on my laptop) - even the lobby furniture is old and worn out. 4. Minibar is poorly stocked so if you want to have a late night snack you dont have any choice. 5. Room service menu is comparatively expensive for a hotel of this size. 6. Breakfast menu is the same EVERYDAY. Overall, if you're ok with the price, Lafala is good for an overnight or a 2 day stay. But if you're staying longer, I wouldn't recommend it that highly.

    Horrible experience! Will not go back!”

    For the price we paid, we assumed this would be an average hotel so we weren't expecting anything fancy. However, the room stunk of ciggarettes and the toilet was SO SMELLY! Also, there was a cockroach in the room. The towels had stains on them! As for cleanliness, this place has no regard for it at all! We will definitely not be staying here again.

    This place is ok, but damn, the noise. The sounds in the neighborhood are amazing. If its not a dog, snack truck, person, it's something else making NOISE. The building is the tallest in the immediate area and it seems like the building absorbs every bit of sound.
