I very much enjoyed my stay at Gayathri's place, it is a beautiful house and very cosy room with a wonderful atmosphere. Gayathri's house is located in a quite side street in Colombo 7, my favorite area in the city. Gayathri and her family are such friendly and nice people, I highly recommend this place whether for a night or several days to explore Colombo. Very looking forward to coming back again

We had a wonderful time at Gayathri's in Cinnamon Gardens! I have to say it is one of the most beautiful parts of the city, with very grand houses on all the surrounding streets. Although about 5km from the centre, it is very cheap to get about by Tuk Tuk! We felt welcomed and looked after from the get go. Gayathri ensured we had everything we needed and made some great suggestions for our flying visit to Colombo. Breakfast was superb and the bed was extremely comfortable, which we needed after a long journey! We even added a book to her collection, The Zoo Keepers wife - so enjoy! Thank you again and we certainly will be sure to stay again and recommend!

Gayathri was very helpful, it was our first day in Sri Lanka and we were feeling a bit lost, but with Gayathri's help everything was easier: the communication was fantastic (fast replies), help with places to eat, help to get tuk tuks for a fair price, etc. Breakfast was very good :) Thank you for everything Gayathri! If you come to Barcelona on your holidays let us know :)
