Lovely host who looked after both of us so well we strongly recommend anyone visiting Colombo to at least stay a night in Frangipani.

We stayed here for our last night in Sri Lanka before flying home to UK. It was great value, conveniently located and roughly a £3 TukTuk ride to the centre of Colombo. Host was very kind and fed us dinner and breakfast with no extra charge. Would recommend.

It was great! Harshi is a wonderful host! This is a fantastic place to catch up on sleep after a long flight. Harshi will give you advice about getting around Sri Lanka and is a lovely person. Overall I would recommend.

Wonderful stay, Harishi is like a little wonder woman, cooking meals for you at any time. She is also a wealth of information and can help book your trip. The room is large and the bed is very comfortable. Would stay again!

BEST HOST EVER! Stay here 10/10 ”
Before booking here I had great communication with harshi. She kindly organised transport for us from the airport. Was welcomed into her home with open arms and a fresh meal even tho it was late. The next morning harshi gave us tips for places to visit around Colombo and beyond. The rooms are big, clean and spacious. A more luxury approach to your standard guest house stay. Harshi always made us breakfast in the morning and it was more then enough. She even offered us lunch and dinner an incredible host/stay all around. A big thank you from both me and yuna we will always remember you. You may even see us again. Much love

Awsome ”
This is my first time staying at a homestay. I was welcomed like I was a member of the family. My room was lovely and Harshi the owner could not do enough for me. I got in late first night and she made me a sandwich. Her breakfast were fabulous and if you said you like something she make sure to make it for you. She arrange my driver and made my itinerary. She is full of energy and love. It was the most amazing place I have ever stayed.I would recommend this place to anyone even if you are used to staying in a fancy hotel you would enjoy your stay here as it became very personal.

Being a frequent traveller and having stayed at many places, I would say FRANGIPANI was the BEST of the BEST!!! My stay at FRANGIPANI was comfortable and I truly felt at HOME! MS HARSHI, the host, is a lady with HEART!! She is EVER READY to go the EXTRA MILE for her guests! She TIRELESSLY ensured that our needs were taken care of. Her HOSPITALITY deserves a THUMBS UP! Though I travelled alone, I was never really alone. FRANGIPANI is a place to mingle, laugh and spread joy! HARSHI, keep doing what you love. You are touching the lives of your guests with your kindness!!! Now I cant wait to go back to SRILANKA and stay at FRANGIPANI!!!

Best host ever in Colombo”
The owners treat you as if you're their own sibling. Feel at home at once. They ask you for tea, coffee, water whenever they see you coming in or going out. Even did a massive dinner for me and another couple. The property in newly built. Has huge rooms and toilets are new and clean. Hot and Cold water. Owners are retired teachers from a prestigious Colombo school. Well mannered.

Rooms are big with very comfortable bed for good sleep. Clean and brand new. Building is located at main junction where you can find buses or tuktuks in 1 min walk to all directions. Beaches are nearby. From roof top you get a view of sea. Owners are super nice. Make their guests feel at home. I'll come again.

Harshini really looked us in terms of everything from transport to food. She even went out of her way to take my wife shopping. I have never had this level of service quality in any hotel, motel or home stay ever. Even the attention to detail was excellent right down to towels, soaps, toothpaste etc.

Warm hospitality, cleanliness & convenient location.
The host, Harshi went out of her way to make our stay as comfortable as possible. We arrived at about 2am in the morning, and I remember it was a little chilly and windy, but guess what, she was waiting at the car porch area and greeted us with warm smiles & hugs! The lounge or should I say family hall is on the 3rd floor, and its nice and cozy, and most importantly - clean and tidy. Before long, we were chatting away like old friends!! Harshi is a very warm & honest person, and throughout our stay we felt very much at home. We will surely stay at Frangipani the next time, and we highly recommend this hotel to you readers.

FRANGIPANI - FRIENDLIEST GUEST HOUSE ”
THe host , the breakfast and the access to public transort
We were welcomed by the host in extremely warm fashion. She overheard "honeymoon" when I called to say it was a "second honeymoon" ( meaning anniversary travelling without children) so she bought us a greeting card and decorated our room with red balloons for celebration and surpirise - which was so sweet. Next morning she prepared breakfast fruits, eggs, toast butter jam and coffee - and all complimentary as I had not requested for breakfast during the booking. She even carried my wife's bag down the stairs. The wealth of info she gave us on visits in Colombo. I would not hesitate to recommend this place. Oh if you take the train from Colombo fort , drop off at Dehiwala station( 10 Rupees!!) and walk about 800m or take the 50Rp TukTuk if you have baggage. The trainstation is also convenient for travel into Colombo and catching intercity trains at Colombo Fort Main Station

Harshi is phenomenal”
You have never met a truly passionate host until you met Harshi. Harshi possesses a genuine passion for making people feel at home. She is a charming person, a great conversationalist and a story teller. She can also cook delicious food. When I stayed at Farangipani I was sick and needed to recuperating fast to continue my journey. Harshi attended to me with so much care that made it feel like home, which expedited my recovery. Being there felt more like staying with family and the guest were amazing as well. We had a great time spent on interesting discussions and sharing experiences. There is some uncanny law of attraction that brings truly amazing people to Farangipani. Come and see for yourself.

A great place with a great host! ”
Since we liked our first stay here so much we decided to stay here a 2nd time during our holiday. In total 5 nights. Harshi, the host, is a super nice and cheerful woman who will do almost everything to help you in every matter and with a great smile. The room was really clean and nice, the beds comfy, Harshis breakfasts tasty and her way to treat us was fantastic! She also offered us a nice meal when we arrived which was great. Harshi helped us in so many ways to make our Sri Lankan holiday to be the best. Staying here was a real pleasure! Walking distance to the beach, shops and railway station. Plenty of tuk tuks nearby. A great place! Thank you so much Harshi, you're the best!

Harshi is the best host one can get. Word can't do justice to what she does for you. She called us up thrice when we were on the way from the airport. Was up till midnight to receive us. The room is great just as shown in the photos. Then lovely breakfast every morning. She goes the extra mile to ensure you eat well. Then she suggested places to us to go around in Colombo. And on the last day she helped is carry our luggage to the station at 5:30 in the morning. Even made us sandwiches and then went with us until we got our train at Colombo fort. Harshini you are the BEST

Undoubtedly the best stay we've ever had was at this beautiful souls house. It was much better than any 5 or 7 star hotel because of the amazing hospitality, love & kindness Harshi displayed. Met her for the very first time & we ended up speaking for hours non stop. For anyone who wants to experience the true beauty of Sri Lanka must book her place and I'm sure it won't be disappointing.🙏🏽

We booked the hotel around 11pm and went to the hotel around 12pm same night. We were welcomed by the owner her self and the welcome it self gave an excellent first impression. Throughout the stay, she was so help full and very warm. Breakfast was superb and we almost had "everything" to eat. Our reccomendations were shared with her already. Surely we will not be hesitant to stay there again.
