Comfortable, clean, central location. Perfect for my quick trip to Colombo. Quality mattress and pillow for a good nights sleep, not always easy to find when travelling. A little noisy with the morning traffic. Lovely family and delicious packed breakfast to take with me on my early start.

It was 'a last minute/emergency' booking. Dijen answered very quickly and in ~30 min I already was at his place. The place is fantastic! The entire house is so big, well decorated and very clean, has a beautiful garden and a fish pond. The room I stayed in was fully furnitured including mosquito spray =), various magazines, bottled water. The mattress was comfy. Big bathroom and a fridge are behind the room door, two steps away. I saw an ironing board and a washing machine, I guess those can be used too. Kitchen is fully equipped, you can cook a meal there. Dijen and his family stay at another part of the house. Dijen is a very thoughtful host. The tasty breakfast was served earlier on my request. And I was reminded to use mosquito spray so many times =)). Dijen kindly answered all my "where/what/how" questions about the city and gave me some tips on my trip around SL. I highly recommend this host! Dijen thank you a lot for your hospitality and all the help. All the best to you and your family.
