Surprised..”
We've learned not a judge an accommodation by its entryway...The Penthouse Above Sea i put together with great taste and awareness of travelers needs. Our hostess was gracious and welcoming even though we arrived in the middle of the night. We felt like welcomed houseguests. The breakfast was excellent and all home made prepared foods.

HOSPITALITY AT ITS BEST”
We decided to do something different on our visit to Sri Lanka and stay in an apartment rather than a hotel and what a good decision that was. We were welcomed at 1am in the morning by the hosts Ranjith and Chitra to welcome us and their hospitality continued throughout the week. The property is located next to the train station for a cheap convenient 20 minute train journey to Colombo Fort. There is a plethora of local restaurants for cheap eats and a supermarket at the bottom of the building. Although the apartments does not have sea views, these can be captured from the balconies of the penthouse living area where you can watch the sun set and watch life go by. The breakfast was simple but devine, If you had any specific needs, I am sure you would be accommodated. Cleanliness was superb and the staff so polite and friendly. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Good for the view from the Terrace”
The Superior rooms booked by us were very small. They had all the necessary amenities but there was no space to do anything. There is no staff to help you with your luggage. The property is a little difficult to find. But the view from the terrace is superb. You can enjoy the sunset and swim in the amazing swimming pool.

On top of the world feeling in Colombo”
Highly recommened for couple, less so for family with children. A very new property located centrally in Colombo. Furnishing is fabulous and tastefully designed. Excellent home-style breakfast, healthy and nourishing. A nice host with a full team of support staff who will make you feel at home.

Off the beaten path.”
Location is suitable for those travelers seeking other travelers. The staff were friendly and excellent. The rooms are a bit small but cozy. The rooms are clean. Noise from call to prayer and near by train rail is not conducive to sleep.

Great ambience and hospitality”
We were travelling from Bentota to Colombo using the state bus. It was easy to find, and the ambience strikes as excellent from the word go. The room was very comfortable. We had a "shared" bathroom, which was removed from our bedroom, but was dedicated to us. The breakfast spread was adequate and tasty. The staff was very courteous and helped us throughout our stay.

Chitra and Ranjit looked after every small need of ours. It is very seldom that one sees such level of personal care put into looking after guests. The staff is exceptionally well trained and polite!

What a wonderful find”
An amazing place with fabulous views over Colombo. Here you will see the 'real' Sri Lanka. We spent hours on the balcony watching the world go by from the irratic traffic, children at school, locals commuting to and from work via the train station just next door. Nothing is too much trouble for Chitra and her amazing staff. Great breakfast. The apartment has shared common areas and is at the top of a residential block. Tuk Tuks are cheap and plentiful to explore the surrounding areas. Although the property has a shared rooftop pool I would not recommend this property for British tourists looking for poolside relaxation........this is by no means a negative as just 1km away there are tourist hotels that offer pool/beach day passes if you want to relax in the sun (Mount Lavinia & Bajaya). All in all a perfect stay for us, thank you Chitra.
