        Pros- -Luxurious public spaces with beautiful artwork, including absolutely amazing paintings done by host. -Gracious and informative hosts. Lots of personal attention given. -Clean, modern rooms with unbelievably comfortable bed and great bathroom. -Delicious breakfast, homemade by the sweetest women you will ever meet. Great place to get acclimated to Sri Lankan culture. We have been traveling for over 8 months and this was one of our top stays so far.

        It is located on the 15th, 16th and 17th floor (with 2 elevators). Definitely tsunami proof, safe and great city view from Balcony. Rooftop swimming pool looks great. Room very good and clean real penthouse. Nice breakfast. Very warm welcome from host and good information provided over the room on arrival. Room is as promised and private (looks as new) every 3\4 rooms also have a shared central room with small kitchen. It is walking distance to Mount Lavina and Beach. You can take a tuk tuk to the slave island city center for dinner (about 30 minuts ) we went to Tao *Chinese restaurant (also nice). We Recommend this Penthouse !!

        Beautiful and unique”

        possibly not for everyone this is a penthouse residential apartment with pool on the roof right near the beach and about 7 kilometres south of downtown Colombo. It is beautifully kept and pristine and the staff and breakfast is great. If you are visiting/working in Colombo it is very convenient and although the building looks a bit bland outside the penthouse is on the 16F with beautiful views....

        Personal and personalised service Welcoming from arrival (at 2.30am due to a delayed flight) til departure. We loved our stay here. Well appointed rooms, comfy bed, common lounge area access, sea views, the ever helpful Chitra as hostess ... and the breakfast was a real highlight! Daily tasting of different delicious local curries, and western options if needed. All the warmth of a B and B with the amenities of a great Hotel room, without the expense. While out of the city centre access is easy by tuk tuk. We recommend (in addition to the regular tourist sites): Colombo walking tours; people watching at Pettah market; walking on the beach and around the local streets to get a taste of daily life; coffee ( and shopping) at Barefoot garden cafe; a visit to the Museum and Viharamahadevi Park; head over the road to Cotton Collection .. but eat at Simply Strawberry... or head down to Paradise Road Cafe for coffee and interesting homewares; and in the evening wander up station road, head up the hill and eat at Malay Restaurant (ask for Anthony)... try the Kotta!

        Only stayed there less than 7 hours as my flight has been delayed badly. Location next to sea therefore good sea view. Premise is further out from Colombo city center. This is a high class airbnb. As it is a Penthouse. Owner is very helpful as he waited for us arrived in the premise after midnight. This penthouse is decorated very nicely. Breakfast is superb especially the Sri Lankan chicken curry. Aircond need to service in room number 2 room. It has ceiling fan so it was fine for me and my wife. Shower was good and bathroom is sparkling clean. A place for gateaway i would recommend.

        Great ocean views. Not centrally located. The room weve had was quite compact, with no opening windows and felt claustrophobic. You had to step out onto the balcony or open area's to enjoy some space. Wonderful staff, personal attention and a good breakfast.

        The place was very well equipped with amenities. There was nothing that the place did not have -- a very clean bathroom, excellent wi-fi and more. We were at the place for less than 10 hrs, hence did not get to have the breakfast. The location of the hotel was slightly disappointing as it was very far from the central hub of the city.

        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.
