Otha Shy Airport Transit Hotel
Negombo Beach Road
Just stayed overnight - The staff were helpful and gladly arranged a lift from airport to hotel and room was clean.
Very close to airport , room was clean ,good bed,hosts were nice !! No shops nearby
Stop over just to sleep”
Decent but could have been cleaner. Room was okay but bathroom was smelly and the sink was clogged. Had to wake up the receptionist at 5am for check out which wasted a little time. But for the money it's okay and it was only a 5 minute drive to the airport so its excellent for early morning flights!
Close to the airport. But that's about it”
It was very close to the airport. But for 45us dollars, I don't thing it was value for money. The room was clean. No complaints. The bathroom had loose fittings. Shower pressure was just adequate. An extra 10% tax I didn't know about. And no breakfast provided.
dirty and bugs on bed
If your work is in Katunayake or to use as a transit stop this is very reasonable”
Otha Shy is a small family run mostly catering for transit passengers. The staff do go out of their way to assist you and have a smile on their face. The hotel is basic but clean - although needs to clean the ceiling of some cobwebs.
5 minutes from the airport. Helpful staff, easy to arrange airport transfers. Great for a long layover or early flight.
Local hotel - very clean - lovely stuff”
We stayed here because we landed very late in Colombo and didn’t want to go to Galle right away after midnight. The hote is 1 km from the airport - which is convenient. However it’s located near a big road which causes some noise - if you are sensitive don’t forget the earplugs. We ordered breakfast for 5USD per person and got a lovely fruit platter plus omelettes and toast. Think they all tried their best to give us a great start into our Sri Lankan adventure.
Nice for a short day stay / transit”
The reception understand what I want.... to sleep while waiting for next flight. She also understand when I asked for particular food.
If you are choosing this hotel only for closeness to the airport, book only, if you are planning to walk from airport to hotel, which is around 1.7 kms. If the cab is taken, it is going to cost minimum 1000 LKR even if it is next door or few kms from airport. If a hotel is taken little far from the airport, we can get hotel for little cheaper. Also, they did not respond to my mails.
Very basic hotel, clean, close to airport. Only suitable for airport airport connection. Far from Colombo.
Poor facility no proper sitting area at reception very poor maintenance”
Nowhere it is a there star property
The smallest rooms are a bit dark and depressing, but the medium rooms were very nice! The breakfast was fabilous! Very friendly staff, though limited undertsanding of English. A perfect place to stay before flying.
Perfect for an airport hotel”
The gal that runs the place is Very accommodating from holding our luggage while we traveled to the Maldives to having a tuk tuk waiting at 4:00am to take us to the airport. Very little amenities but perfect for being just down the street from the airport
Very comfortable stay”
If you need to rest before your early morning flight, this hotel is a place to consider. The room is very clean and the bed is super comfortable. Staff are very helpful and lovely. Only 1 KM from the airport and the staff will organise a tuktuk or taxi for your early morning pickup and airport drop. I would recommend highly.
It’s a clean simple place 5 min from the airport ”
No pool or restaurant just very friendly staff that allowed us to keep our luggage there while we did a four day excursion to the Maldives. As a “airport hotel” for Sri Lanka I highly recommend it.
Clean and neet also very near to Airport”
But slow WiFi and bit low pressure water supply, no shops, no restaurants nearby
1. While booking the room charges were indicated as USD 36, where as paid USD 39.96 (They have indicated it is with additional taxes). Request you to indicate with taxes when we are booking, if he above statement by hotel is true 2. Hotel has demanded for cash instead of card payment - Reasons given in chronological a. Card swiping machine is not working b. additional 3.5% as card charges has to be paid - Have t go to an ATM for withdrawing cash and hand iver 3. No Restaurant - Need to walk for 800 meters for getting a food (even that restaurant has tie up with hotel), but the prices for restaurant are higher. 4. Very disturbing as the discussions had outside the room by other people are heard inside. 5. Requested for wakeup call, which never happened 6. While checking out at 5AM in the morning no one was available at the front desk (Reception), left the room key on their table
Just a night stop.. ”
We booked it because our plane landed around midnight and we didn't want a long journey into the city. Next time we will try a hotel in Negombo.
Great beds !”
Very comfy beds and well appointed room. Staff very helpful and friendly. The restaurant is not open till later in this year
