About two and a half hour drive from the International Airport.
The room is cozy and clean, the whole house is situated in a quiet neighborhood but within easy reach to the main road and other tourist attractions by tuktuk.
Dijen is a friendly and nice man, the family also prepared delectable breakfast for us. It was a wonderful experience to meet Dijen and to live in his place!
The house is absolutely beautiful, with a lovely courtyard, set in a quiet neighborhood, in a nice part of town. I would totally stay here again, and intend to do so in the future.
Dijen's house is roomy multi-level palace. The downstairs is set aside for travellers to hang out in. There's a kitchen, dining area (where breakfast is served), two sitting areas and an open air sitting are complete with koi pond. There are ceiling fans in every room. It's a pretty nice house. Also downstairs is the room I stayed in. It's small, perfect for one person and a little tight for two people. It's similar to ensuite rooms you might find in a European pension. I think it's the only guest room with hot water and AC.
There's a building under construction opposite the house. It's a little noisy during the day, but it's very quiet at night.
Breakfast is DIY. You can cook up some eggs, make toast, tea, coffee, fruit, cereal, etc. There were also local treats to try. A nice feast, every morning.
It was a pleasure to host you recently. Delighted to note that you had a pleasant stay with us recently. Thank you for your kind Review and suggestions. Wishing you all the Best!. And do come again, and do continue to 'explore the World!'. Kind Regards, Dijen.
Francis might seem a bit sturdy at first, but he is, in fact, a warm and welcoming host. He will answer all your questions and help out wherever he can. The rooms are comfortable and spotless. I had a great stay. Thanks.
We had a wonderful, short stay at the Aircon Oasis in Colombo! Dijen was a wonderful and friendly host. He gave us great recommendations for places to eat, helped arrange a driver from the airport, and a tuk tuk to the train when we departed. The breakfast setup and choices were plentiful and the AirCon was superb! We'll worth it after walking the streets and beaches under the scorching sun. The whole family was friendly and Dijen was very interested in getting to know us and making us feel safe and comfortable.
It was a pleasure indeed to host you recently. Thank you for your kind Review. Hope you are having a good vacation in the island, and do continue to explore the amazing terrains of the World, as and when your time and means permits one to do so. Hope to see you again in the near future, and wishing you all the Best in your present and future endeavours! Kind Regards, Dijen.
Dijen's house is a wonderful spot in the center of Colombo and Dijen himself is an even more wonderful host. Him and his family were very warm and welcoming. Transport was organised for us when needed and there was no shortage of suggestions on places to eat etc. The room I stayed in was comfortable and the breakfast spread offered up in the morning was unrivaled. This Airbnb is highly recommended to anyone staying in or passing through Colombo. Thank you Dijen
Dijen's place is well located to the main sights (tuktuk ride away) and good restaurants within walking distance including the recommended South Indian restaurant Greenlands.
Dijen and his family are friendly allowing us to use their PC to reconfirm our flights and booking a taxi for us too.
The only downside was the stuffiness of the room which made it hard to sleep. We had the ground floor room, which only had a fan plus the windows were closed. I would therefore go for one of the other rooms.
