We had a great stay in Nelun's place in Colombo. Although we didn't meet Nelun in our short stay she was very helpful in providing information and arranging transport. The housekeeper was also very friendly and made us an excellent breakfast. The room was very spacious and clean. The location is a short taxi into the centre of Colombo and is therefore a good place to explore the city from

Nelun and her husband make us feel like home. What a wunderful people. They do everything to make it an unforgetable stay. The room was clean a good bed for sleep and a marvelous breakfast. Advice what to see, where to eat and they even arranged traintickets for us. If you are looking for a great place to stay this will be it.

Nelun is a sweet hostess but her place is dark n dingy unlike the projected photographs.The house gives an antique feel unlike the photographs which give u a modern feel.The only plus point is it is centrally located.

Response from Nelun:
i am so sorry that you did not like our home kiran. our sitting room is about 1500 sq ft which includes two open to sky areas with trees. i dont know what you mean by dark and dingy. yes, its not a modern house but it has character and style and lots of light and this is reflected in the photographs taken by the airbnb staff. i recall you saying you stayed at the cinnamon grand hotel the last time you were in colombo, maybe this is more your style. in fact i was wondering why you chose to stay at a cheap airbnb if you stayed at a hotel last time. anyway it was a pleasure hosting you and best regards

Nelun and her family were brilliant hosts. We arrived after a very long flight from the uk with some delays. We were greeted by lovely staff and delicious food. My son instantly fell in love with all of them and loved playing in the big open living area and garden. Nelun kindly offered the use of her pool at another property close by. Both Earl and myself really enjoyed using it - lots of fun and very cooling, in a shady spot on the rooftop. The location is safe and fairly accessible. A great place to start your journey in Sri Lanka. We really enjoyed our time here and will surely go back when we are passing thru Colombo. Thank you Nelun and family!

The host Nelun is nice and friendly, but the room is a little bit old and not very clean. Too much mosqitos. One good thing is that Nelun cooked breakfast which is quite warm.

My friend and I arrived in Colombo around midnight, and she patiently waited for us. Nelun recommended places to go to and places to eat. She helped us enjoy our stay being in Colombo without any plans in mind. Would definitely choose to stay at her place again when I visit Colombo.
