We just stayed for one night at the City Condo, but it made our stay in Colombo so much better. The roof top is amazing, especially during dawn or in the evening. The building is 5 storeys high, but it feels more like a tower, as there are no neighbouring apartments.
Div was there when we arrived. He is a very nice and welcoming host, he even invited us for breakfast at a coffee place overlooking the sea.
I can definitely recommend this place.
Very nice trip, a comfortable and cool space on one of the busiest streets in colombo. Div was a very flexible and helpful host, and the Thai food was delicious!
Very nice roof top with a great view to the city, and with 2 beautiful pet tortoises living there.
We stayed one night in Div's place. Div was overseas during our stay and left key with housemate. Div was very communicative and helpful even without him being there. Accommodation appeared a little pricey and basic compared to other places we stayed on our trip. All in all, it accommodated our needs. Thanks Div
Host was very welcoming and responsive. I would highly recommend grabbing food at his Thai restaurant in the building!
Nice Welcome. Very comfortable and clean room. Street can be very noisy.
In total a perfect place to spend one night in Colombo.
Good food at their restaurant:
Our stay in Div's place was rather poor. First of all the host hasn't answered any of our messages or mails or calls before coming,so we were not even sure there will be someone with a key waiting for us. We got the keys from downstairs restaurant owned by Div. Room was spacious but needs a lot of repairing. Bathroom with no hot water and a hole in the wall. The hole made the bathroom really hot despite AC in the room. There was no kitchenette,this space was used for construction so we didn't have a chance to cook something ourselves. However there was a small fridge and the wi-fi was good. The door to the room kept on falling off so we were not felling that secured. We haven't met Div which we heard a lot of good stuff about,we were dealing with the chef from downstairs restaurant who spoke little english. There is a rooftop with nice view to the city. Place is conveniently located in Colombo 4.
Огромное спасибо хозяину этого номера! Он был очень гостеприимен и внимателен к нам.Помог нам в первый день прибывания и на все вопросы был вежлив. Номер был чистым и удобным.
