Stayed here for 2 nights in March. Dev arranged pickup at airport for us.
Pros: clean, comfortable, great caretaker who helps out
Cons: major traffic noise starts at 0500 and doesn't stop till 10pm. Situated on major busy road. No hot water. Along distance from city centre not a distance you can walk. Dev seemed very disorganised he moved us on our final night as he had "double booked us" he moved us to another unit upstairs which was hotter, no wifi, no hot water. We were unhappy but moved anyway we then asked to move back down and got no response until the morning we left when Dev said he must have got his days mixed up as there was no double booking and we could have stayed where we were????? Overall I wouldn't stay here again!!!
I spent there nearly 4 weeks, I had a great time.Normally people book it only for some days, I think.The owner Div and his caretaker Silva fulfilled every wish.Galle road is real Sri Lanka, full of life, many shops and typical sri lankan restaurants.I can recommand the place.caretaker Silva was extremly helpful, despite his limited english, thank you.
Had a very enjoyable stay. The apartment was perfect for myself, partner and our 7 month baby. Div was a lovely host and even provided us with a baby cot and baby bath! The place was clean, the bed comfortable and was just about far enough from the traffic to be able to ignore the road noise. Would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a stop in Colombo.
Our 3 night stay at City Condo @Colombo4-Laurel was perfect for the 3 of us. It is a large, clean and spacious condo with excellent building security and bathroom facilities!
It was a great base for exploring Colombo, not least due to the amazing hospitality provided by Div Candappa.
We highly recommend City Condo@Colombo4-Laurel!
This city condo 'Colombo 04 - Laurel' is a great place to base for a short term stay. Very centrally and conveniently based, it's surrounded by small shops and food eateries and is only a short tuk tuk ride away from Majestic City. Definitely a place I would stay again.
In terms of the actual condo, it is modern and clean which met our standards very well. We were a group of three and then booked again for a group of two to stay. The size of the flat was great for us and with its minimalist approach to furnishing it is very spaceous and attractive. The flat also receives a great amount of sunlight so it is always bright which is a personal preference. The balcony has been sealed off which is a bit of a shame, and it he deal job Is a bit ugly looking, but the windows can still be opened which compensates for that. The view is killer! Overlooking nto a few buildings with the stunning sea horizon beyond. This was a real treat to wake up to every morning! The only thing I did wish the flat had was a better shower head in the bathroom that gave a more powerful water spray! But off course this is hardly a defining issue for a flat of this quality.
div's place was clean and easy to find, the place was exactly as it was described in the profile.
We truly enjoyed our time at the Laurel. The apartment was kept in in nice condition and had a great view and awesome lighting. Div was very responsive and timely to all our needs.
Our stay at Divs apartment was great. Could organise a lot through him and he had a lot of local knowledge.
Well, hardly anything for me to write here, after all the wonderful reviews posted about Div. A charming and gracious host, who takes his guests seriously, and goes that extra mile to make them feel at home. Made some excellent recommendations, not just about cafes and bars, but also places to see and go art shopping.
As for the apartment, it was very welcoming and comfortable with attendants at hand in case anything was required.
I'm definitely going back to Div the next time I visit.
Div's condo was well located in town and he even arranged for a driver to pick us up from the airport in the early hours of the morning. The view from the condo was lovely and the place itself was clean and comfortable.
Div even picked us up for breakfast on our last day and took us to the train station.
If Colombo gets to hot for you we found we were able to swim at the mount Lavinia hotel pool which is only a short tuk tuk away.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
