Dear future guest's!
We stayed at Divs place for two nights when we arrived in Colombo. The place is a private apartment on the 4th floor in a building where the owner, Div, works downstairs. Spacious and clean, with a nice view to the sea! It is very easy to go by a Tuk-tuk to the center of the city in a few minutes. Make sure to visit the Galle Face for dinner - amazing Sri Lankan streetfood!
The Sri Lankan people are all very helpful and sweet, but we have to admit that Div is beyond helpful! Communication went well, and when we figured out that we forgot our cameras on our way to Trincomalee, he arranged his colleague to bring them with her the following weekend :) Thank you, Div! We would definitely recommend Div and his apartment to future guests!
Div's place is a fantastic studio-like apartment. The rooftop terrace was a wonderful place for us to hang out at night. The place was clean and so close to a lot of restaurants. The Thai food place on the bottom level is really good!
My boyfriend and I Started our 3-week long vacation here and couldn't have been happier with Div's graciousness, willingness to help and also respect our privacy. Overall a wonderful place to stay!
Div a été un hôte charmant et accessible, ses conseils étaient toujours utiles et donnés avec le sourire. L'appartement est spacieux et très agréable, exactement comme sur les photos. Le restaurant est très bon, c'est un endroit que nous recommandons sans hésiter !
Very nice！！good bath room.big room！and the thai food at the first floor is very good！Div is so warmful to us！thank u！
Great little flat in Colombo, a good supermarket just next door and plenty of auto rickshaw's on the street outside. Div was a fantastic host and very flexible when our travel arrangements were changed by our airline last minute!
The bedroom is bright and airy, the roof terrace and tortoise are fabulous and the fridge keeps your beer icy cold!
Div's place is well appointed, clean and conveniently located. I would certainly recommend it.
Div was a nice host. He was in the place to welcome us. The room was nice and confortable. He has a thaï restaurant downstairs which was amazing. The food was excellent. Div was always available for any question we had.
Great location to visit Colombo.
We highly recommand
