24hr Stop”
Great little place to get your head down after a long flight. Room is spacious and very clean as was private bathroom. Manel is very friendly and served us a.great breakfast of scrambled eggs, toast and jams, fresh fruit, coffee/tea/water got us off to a good start. This place is approximately 6km from train station. Only hick is the thickness of the mattress, we could feel the lats (wife is only 52kg so not about size) but being so tired we slept soundly. Sean & Crystal

Wonderful homestay experience! ”
We found Hector and Manel's home to be a wonderful option for busy Columbo. We arrived to the house very late at night due to flight delays and Manel could not have been more understanding about this. It was nice to come to a home after a hectic day than to a hotel. The house is in a neigborhood and down a narrow street so it provides respite from the hectic pace of Columbo while sightseeing. The room is ample, the bed large and the bathroom with the amenities you need. She left available all we needed to prepare coffee as we are early risers. We enjoyed her home cooked breakfast each morning and more so having conversations with her about her family, grandchild and life in Sri Lanka. She was so kind and helpful when we needed guidance on where to go, information on train schedules and a tuk tuk when you need one. We felt this homestay was a peek into life in Sri Lanka and that was precisely what we were looking for. Manel and Hector are WONDERFUL hosts and I recommend this option!

Hospitality & Ease”
Manels attentiveness. Family feel. Location
Our stay was very pleasant and our 2 yr old daughter's needs was well looked after. Manels aim is too make you feel relaxed, free and at ease and along with Hector, are a wealth of information concerning what to do in Colombo and the country and where to eat. We appreciated her efforts and could not have had a better introduction to Sri Lanka. Breakfast was good and Manels concern of what we prefered was evident. A nice little house well away from the busy streets but close enough to ride into the center. A very good choice for those interested and Manel really puts in the egfort to assure you of a good stay.

Home away from home”
Clean, friendly, homey
My stay at Hector and Manels Home was lovely! They are both very friendly, and their guest house is really an invitation into their own home. You basically live in a house in the middle of Colombo, close to everything the city has to offer. I'm already planning on coming back!

Very open and helpfull owner, tasty breakfasts”
We have arrived at the Hector and Manels Home very early - about 5.30 in the morning. Charming owner was welcoming us and allow us to have a shower and leave the luggage. We also had the possibility to have the extra paid early breakfast. The owner was really helpfull with organising our stay in Colombo. I have also received the free voucher for foot masage for free as a gift. Overall the stay was excellent and we recommend the stay there.
