City Condo is a great place to stay with family. If traveling with children, this would be it! You may cook simple dishes. And there is a 7 stories mall just right beside. All the shops in within walking distance. Also not forgetting Div, even though he is away, he is very helpful and always attend to our queries. If you love Thai food, Tom Yum is a restaurant which is located at ground floor of the building, a MUST TRY.... Overall, its a worth staying place!
I stayed with a friend at Div's place for a month unlike the majority of other visitors who had shorter stays. The stay was very comfortable and definitely recommend it to others. Div is very kind and helpful. Took us for breakfast on the morning we arrived. The house is on Galle road that gives you a good position in between mount Lavinia beach and the city centre. However, during our stay there was quite a lot of construction taking place with people walking in and out of the flat without our permission. The main double bed is in the middle of the living room and so there is not much privacy from the person using the other room. The rooftop was not appropriate for use for the majority of the stay. Since we stayed for a month, we met many locals who told us that the price of this flat was extortionate and that for this money we could stay in a luxurious apartment with a pool and gym in the city centre for the same price. Had some trouble with the wifi to start of but then it was all ok. I do recommend this place if you are staying for less than 1 week.
Good to meet you too and am happy your various friends got to stay in-between at no extra charge.The word extortionate used in your review is bit harsh I think and could it be as I could not refund when you went for one week to the South?
I would have appreciated if you could have found a condo for my price with pool.gym instead of hearsay.I have many guests since 2010 stay long term year after year.
I do however apologise for the paint work,its an investment so quality is maintained for guests.
I perfectly enjoyed my stay at this nice apartment. Centrally located, great view, comfy bed, fast Wifi, hot water, Aircon, washing machine, well equipped kitchen, very clean and spacious; a wonderful place to stay! Div is a very welcoming, helpful and caring host! He attended immediately to all questions and helped with every request. I was very happy about the early morning check in and transport from the airport! Thanks a lot! Highly, highly recommendable!
The host was not there he was in Thailand. Although I was given a number to call on arrival it was inactive. I had to wait over an hour before an employee arrived with a key; to begin with I was shown to the wrong room
Our stay at Div's place was incredible. The place was clean and well maintained as seen in his pics. Most of all, we loved how quickly Div would response to our questions. It almost felt like he was there in person. Would definitely stay here again if I visit Colombo.
The apartment was wonderfully located in a busy district in Colombo. Dev was a great host, very accommodating and friendly. It was a great experience
I wanted to book for 2 nights, however the host has it set for a 3 night minimum stay. I mentioned this to the host and he told me to go ahead and book 3 nights and then cancel 1 night and ask for a refund. I followed his instructions, which ended up costing me extra in fees and waiting 2 weeks for a refund. I feel this was an unnecessary complication. Saying that Div was very fast in replying and the whole checkin process was very smooth. The room itself is very spacious and well equipped, compared to other options in Colombo it offers good value for money. However, I felt the room wasn't in the same condition as the pictures, its a little tatty. Also I was surprised after confirmation to receive the rules that state an extra USD5 is charged to use the aircon, this should have been mentioned before booking. Location wise it's about a 10 min drive from the Dutch Hospital on the main road into town. It was very easy to get tuk tuks outside and back to the place. The Thai restaurant downstairs was a complete let down, the service is slower than a one legged snail and the food is only just passable as Thai.
