The neighborhood where this b&b is situated is perfect. Near the city center (20min. to Fort by tuk-tuk, ~350rp). The accommodation is very nice, clean, safe and a perfect start/ finish for your Sri Lanka holiday/ visit Colombo. Both Gayathri, her husband and child and the staff where lovely. They had very much time for a chat to feel yourself very comfortable. Besides that they where very flexible, I arrived at 5am, and also checkout time was more than flexible. They also arranged a taxi to the airport.
Conclusion: a recommendation and the perfect spot in Colombo!
Because my flight delayed,I missed this house,what a pity!
Gayathri is a really nice host with lots of experience with people world wide. Nevertheless she is still interested in people and good conversation to support at the first steps on Sri Lanka island. Her husband is a nice person too, unfortunately we had not enough possibilities to meet each other.
We lived in the charming room for 3 days, which was quite good. However there is some space for improvement due to cleanliness.
Positive is surely the quiet area where the room is located comparing to the noises in the capital Colombo generally. It is a good point to start discovering the city.
We can recommend that place as also the family.
Thank you from the north German couple,
Tina and Dirk
My best friend and I had a really nice and relaxing stay! The residential and safe neighbourhood is calm and it was great to go back to this clean and quiet place after a day in Pettah market. Gayathri is the sweetest and really made us feel at home. She would always help us as much as she can for transport, where to eat out or just to have a nice talk :) Breakfast was really good too. We enjoyed it so much. We will come back for sure!
The room was very nice and cute. the area is a little far from airport but beautiful and quiet place in Colombo. Gayathri is very friendly and welcoming host. The breakfast was delicious. I could stayed here only one night, but it was really great time. i want to stay here one more time.
The house is in a good location. We were arriving at 2am, despite we have to call &knock the door several times in order to check in.Everything else is fine.Our host lady was very friendly.
