Gayathri and her husband and their darling daughter welcomed us into their home with open arms! They made sure our stay was as comfortable and wonderful as possible looking after every detail. We had the best time!
We arrived very late (actually in the wee hours of the morning) and Gayathri arranged for a driver to meet us at the airport so we wouldn't have to worry about transport. We were worried that there wasn't air conditioning but the fan in the room was powerful and we stayed cool all night.
We woke up late the next morning and were served an awesome breakfast of scrambled eggs, fresh papaya juice, toast with jam & butter, fresh mango from the tree and tea served in a beautiful tea set.
Gayathri sat with us and we shared stories over breakfast. We got along very well and I found her sense of humor delightful. She was heading off to an organic market and asked if we would like to come along. We had fun roaming through the handmade goods and sampling the food. It was so nice being shown around by a local.
Our holiday in Sri Lanka got messed up as there was a mix up with our visas to India (where we were traveling to next) and we needed to stay in Colombo for 3 extra days to sort it out. Not only did Gayathri move things around to accommodate us, but she also helped us print documents for immigration and found a place that took passport photos. It would have been SO stressful if it wasn't for her efforts.
After spending all day at the Indian consulate, we came back to the house to pizza and cognac. They thought of everything!!!
I can't recommend them enough - it was a truly great airbnb experience!
We enjoyed our stay at Gayathri B&B. Gayathri was very helpful already weeks before we came. She bought traintickets for us in advance, and arranged cheap taxi transportation to pick us up at the airport. She is really kind and ready to help. The room was nice, clean with hundreds of books which gav a really home atmosphere. The bathroom was quite fine as well.
We can really recommand this place which is near the city center ( 250 rupies by tuktuk) .
We have already recommand this place to a couple from Belgium we met today in Trincomalee.
Thanks a lot, Gayathri for your kindness.

Absolut perfekter Start in Colombo. Sehr freundliche und hilfsbereite Menschen dort. Gut, nicht nur um in Sri Lanka anzukommen, sondern auch für mehr Tage um Colombo zu erkunden.
Great place in a calm Colombo area not far from the center. Very friendly & helpful host, lovely little daughter.
Choice between continental and Sri Lankan breakfast. We took the latter which was obviously a good choice.

Gayathri is an amazing host, we were so happy she was our first stop in Sr Lanka! She was very accommodating about an early check-in, and the room was clean and comfortable. She was super friendly, we really enjoyed spending time with her at breakfast. Thanks Gayathri!
I spent 1 night here with my friend. The location is at the center of Colombo. Really cozy room with good design. Ms.Gayathri was very kind and nice. I gonna miss this place and the (website hidden) is really worth spend more days there.
We had a very pleasant stay with Gayathri and her family. The room is spacious and clean and Gayathri is very friendly and helpful! It is very easy to travel to the main attractions from this house.
