staying the first nights at shehan's place was the best welcome we could get in colombo to quickly feel comfortable. his place, a little outside of the centre, is very nice and quiet (and from our trip around the country the only place with hot showers haha). the sri lankan breakfast, prepared by his lovely mother, was delicious too. shehan also showed us beautiful spots and good places to eat out in the city, thank you very much that you took so good care of us! we hope to see you soon in austria!
Very chilled out place in a great location. If you're staying in Colombo, then this is the right spot. You can easily take a bus or a TukTuk to get to the city center. The whole apartment is a nice place to chill out in.
Make sure you try Shehan's mom's breakfast or a dinner. She's a saint.
Everything was fine. Shehan did everything to make my stay in chaotic Colombo as easy as possible. I am thankful especialy for arranging tuktuk at 3 am to take me to airport.
Near the accomodation is grocery store and several bakeries and restaurants with fantastic food.
This is a very chilled and comfortable place to stay. The room is spacious.
Shehan is a good guy. I had a nice evening chatting with him.
He answered any questions I had and organised cheap transport when needed.
I really liked this place, but mainly because of Shihan's mother, who take care of us, give us a lot o time, explaining everything, telephoning for tuk-tuk, explain the real price. Because of her we find a piece of the truth about Sri Lanka. Thanks! She is very interesting person :)
Molto bene, la casa e' un po' lontana dal caotico centro dunque luogo ideale x rilassarsi.
We were made to feel very welcome by Shehan's mother: she made us a very welcome pot of tea! The room was fine, clean with a comfortable bed. The place is down a very quiet lane, not so easy to find, with some small eating places around the corner. Unfortunately Shehan's mum could not supper for us as she was a little unwell. Breakfast was good, fruit and Sri Lankan food and good coffee.
