Nous étions seul dans la maison avec le personnel de maison le lendemain car nous devions partir dans l'après midi, cela n'a pas posé de problemes
Petit déjeuner parfait
Prévoir tuktuk pour le centre de colombo (350R pour fort station)
Une très bon bonne adresse BnB
We arrived at Dijen's place really early in the morning by a taxi Dijen had pre ranged for us - this was really great as it was our first day Sri Lanka and just had a long flight we were super tired and jet lagged. Dijen kindly offered us breakfast that morning as well as the next day too. The family were really accommodating and their place is amazing! The design is great and we had a lovely stay their. It is a little out of Colombo city and cost about 300-400 rupees to get into the city by Tuk Tuk
I had a fantastic stay at Dijens house in Colombo. Beautiful garden located in a great area in the city only a 10 min Tuk- Tuk from the Colombo Fort Station. The decoration and layout of the house is beautiful. I enjoyed sitting on the rocking chair in the garden which overlooks the fish pond. A complimentary bottle of water on arrival was a great touch as was the natural mosquito repellent. The breakfast was also 10/10. I will be booking another night here before i leave Sri Lanka. If you are looking for a place to stay then this is it!
Trust you are having a wonderful and relaxing vacation in the island!. Delighted to note that you had a pleasant stay with us recently, and enjoyed being very much in the midst of the 'unique architectural layouts' of the premises... which makes it all the more relaxing for a good and natural 'homestay experience'...!. It was a pleasure, indeed, to host you. Do come again. And do continue to explore the World...! Wishing you all the Best!. Thank you for your kind Review. Kind Regards, Dijen.
The stay at Dijens place was the best after the long travel to Sri Lanka.
His place is beautiful, authentic, very stylish and clean and Dijen was very helpful and gave us tips for our ongoing travel, organised transportation etc... Recommended very much

Thank you - we had a very nice stay in your house. Beautiful house with a very nice chill-out space
I stayed two nights at Dijen's guesthouse in Colombo. The room was beautifully furnished with a comfortable bed, desk and arm chair; overlooked a courtyard; and had large windows that opened outwards to let in the evening air. Breakfast was simple, but typically Sri Lankan and tastey, and had Western options if that's what you'd prefer. The location is good, with restaurants to suit all budgets within 10 minutes walk on Galle Road; however Colombo is so sprawling that you will need a Tuk-Tuk to get around. Dijen's family was very welcoming and I would certainly recommend to fellow travellers.
Lovely room in a gorgeous house in the center of colombo
Francis and wife are very accomodant.
Will come back!
