科伦坡7区是个富人区，小区比较安静。去的那天女主人生病了。没有机会好好接触。早餐是西式的，面包 鸡蛋 红茶 水果。好吃，干净。家具风格是简约宜家风。我们住的房间是照片封面那间，房间不大，但是还是比较舒适的，有点家的感觉。要是洗澡间的下水道出水能快点的话就完美了！
Unfortunately Gayathri was ill during our stay, however, she did not fail to make us feel at home as her sister, husband and all others in the house made us feel very welcome after a long flight. They gave us a lovely breakfast and helped us around the city with appropriate maps, taxi services and local knowledge. The room was clean and the bathroom in good condition. The house itself is in a beautiful residential area slightly outside central colombo but cabs are so cheap its not a worry. I recommend the Gallery Cafe for lunch or dinner nearby.
This place is lovely. It's clean. We arrived late yet we were welcomed by the people living there. The room is decent for two. The bathroom is not so big but there's hot water. You should bring your own basic toiletries as they will provide only soap. Breakfast is nice. The place is not far from independence square. Don't expect the room to be like a hotel but it's a very nice air b&b :)
A must stay in colombo! Generally the room fee in Colombo is a little bit expensive，but Gayathri's house is better than other hotels with higher price. The room is decorated with good taste，we had such a woderful stay. And also Gayathri is a nice and helpful host.
Nice place, location is good and safe for returning late. Gayathri is helpful. Only the room looks older than on the picture, and if you do not expect much, the room is fine. Found a lot of interesting books in the room, shame couldn't finish them
Gayathri was efficient and super friendly in accepting my last minute, one-night booking. There were clear instructions to reach what could have been a difficult residential address to find, I was met by family members with no fuss on arrival, the room was clean and well appointed, Gayathri was wonderful to have a chat with and helpful, and the included breakfast was yummy. Couldn't fault it. Thanks Gayathri!
