    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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
