Dijen and his family are really friendly and his house is a good place to stay while you visiting Colombo. We loved the breakfast and dijen had some good suggestions where to go in the city. Thanks:)
Dijen and his family were great, they were attentive without being smothering and helped us with the little things we asked for. Their Sri Lankan breakfast was so delicious and their house has so much character. We were absolutely charmed!
The accommodation is quite excellent because This house makes the best use of its feature.
The wood-based furniture and structure are good taste and this is my most favourite point.
The location is still peaceful. A very spacious room would be enough for a long stay. Greenery environment is also relaxing.
There is no problem to book for a room without air conditioner.
It is cool at night and ceiling fan is running during my sleeping.
Not only the hard but the soft, Dijen's hospitality is also appreciated.
There are uncountable compliments to his services.
My summerised review is that this is the best room and host!
It was a pleasure to host you recently. Delighted that you had a pleasant stay with us recently, and enjoyed the 'unique architectural ambience' in the premises...!. Hope you had a good holiday here!. Thank you for your kind Review. Wishing you all the Best!. Kind Regards, Dijen.
I visited Colombo alone on visa runs for over a week and it was perfect for what I needed. Dijen is very helpful with arranging tuk-tuks/ cabs, giving directions or any assistance around the city. I had to extend my stay unexpectedly and it was easily arranged. Breakfast is tasty and varied, you can make your own eggs etc. The dining area was airy with a light and pleasant atmosphere. Nice, clean, well-ventilated rooms, beds and pillows have just the right softness. They give you bottled mineral water upon arrival too. Strong wifi connectivity and a laundry area - very important for longer-staying guests. Overall I enjoyed my stay and will highly recommend this listing.
Dijen and his wife were very friendly and caring. Dijen bought us train tickets before our arrival and his wife arranged me an appointment at the dentists.
Their house is really big, has a nice style and we always had our privacy.
Thank you Dijen!
Great host and nice house. You'll feel as home. Good breakfast and you can go everywhere with tuktuk.
Dijen et sa famille nous ont très bien accueillis dans une Tres belle maison.
La chambre était correcte. Le petit déjeuner au top!
A mi chemin entre le centre de Colombo et mount lavinia. Bon Endroit pour faire une halte à colombo.
