  • My third time staying at the Charming White Room - the hospitality is wonderful and is always the same. Friendly host who is quick to respond and is flexible for any additional requests - I loved staying there and will be back there soon. The place is more like a home to me now. I would highly recommend the guest house for anybody travelling to stay in a private place where you are surrounded by other tourists - cozy and warm house - you can be yourself - solitude. Close proximity to city centre and very convenient to be in and out for shopping or on other trips.

  • Superb room, very clean and very cozy. Really a favorite! Very caring host, who really puts you at ease. In a beautiful district, we are calm while being a few minutes by tuk tuk from places to visit. If you go through Colombo I can only advise you to come and stay with Gayathri

Very clean, peaceful place closer to public transport, good hotels! So Gayathri's stay gave us a very good start for holiday in Sri Lanka! Thank you!

    Sajjala2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved our stay here! Our taxi was kindly organised from the airport to the Airbnb resulting in a seamless late night arrival. The room was cosy and cute. Further, we were cooked a nourishing breakfast when we woke the next day. Had lovely chats with the host. Highly recommend. Above and beyond.

    Daisy2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Very Nice - in a quiet area. This way you get to see the greener side of Colombo.

    Jesper2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Gayathri's lovely home is in a quiet and paceful neighborhood. However the hustle and bustle of the city center is just a short tuk tuk ride away. The house itself is bright, clean and very comfortable. Gayathri was extremely helpful in giving me the confidence to navigate around Colombo, after an international flight. This was a great introduction to Colombo. Thanks so much, Gayathri!

  • Great communication and kind hospitality for a very last minute booking!

    Jamie Lynne2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Arjuna and family were very warm and welcoming, great hospitality, they had lots of great recommendations and helpful tips on places to eat and see in Sri Lanka when asked, they give you your own space and just go about their day. They also have a lovely pet dog, lily who loves pats! But just keeps to herself if you’re not a dog person. They offer to cook breakfast, lunch and dinner for a small fee, we opted for traditional Sri Lankan breakfast one morning and continental the next, it was delicious! The home was in a great location, located on a back street so was nice and quiet. Cricket Club cafe is located around the corner for more western food or Mango tree for Sri Lanka, both within walking distance from the house. Our room and bathroom were clean, wifi, A/C/ fan in room, hot water, room also a lock on the door not that we ever felt we needed to lock it! Would definitely stay here again!

    Tim2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Spacious airy and in a great location. This was the perfect place for us on our last night in Sri Lanka. Refreshments on arrival were thoughtful and gratefully received!

    Alastair2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Arjuna is a really good host and will give you the best welcome in colombo ! It was really pleasant to stay here and we will come back again for sure !

    Helschger2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Everyone in Arjuna's household is very accommodating and friendly. The location is extremely good because you can get to the city quickly and it is still very quiet (in my opinion the most relaxed area of Colombo). Breakfast at $ 5 is really sensational.

    Fabian2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Arjuna and family are lovely to stay with. Very hospitable and were happy to provide assistance and local tips. I would recommend the breakfast they provide each morning as it was fresh and delicious. We also loved spending time with Arjuna’s beautiful dog Lily!

  • Lovely hotel with a unique style situated in a nice area of Colombo. Everyone was very friendly, the room was nice and the beds and seating area comfortable. There Wer lots of plugs to charge all your electronic stuff. I loved that they handed out lots of infos for exploring Colombo. Unfortunately we've spent only 1 night there and had neither time to use the pool nor eat at the cafe. So next time we will stay longer for sure. Thanks for the great stay.

  • What an amazing place, I feeled so loved. And amazing hospitality and food. If you are very “ pool people” then maybe the huge hotel is better. Have been stayed in Colombo in those huge hotels but I wount anymore and will stay @ Raha Villa deffinetly. Villa is not in centre-centre but still very close. And as most of tuk tuks are metered now to drive around is very affordable. Thank you our dear hosts and have a very merry Christmas!

  • Overall, it’s okay, just started to see the hostess and her three nannies, a little scared, and our driver said that there is no problem, you can stay, very safe, because we are two girls. After checking in, I found that I was really satisfied. The breakfast was very rich. The house was beautiful. They were some photos and collectibles. When I left, one of the nannies took the initiative to ask us for a tip, although I didn’t give it because I There is no extra money on hand. This is a matter of opinion, but it does affect my good mood, but I like the hostess very much and shared photos of her trip with her.

  • The host grandmother received us, everyone in the room was warm and hospitable, the house had the feeling of home, refined and clean, like a paradise. Everyone arranged a car and a series of questions for us. It was very thoughtful, the breakfast was delicious, the two dogs were very cute, and there was a naughty kitten. In short, recommend it here.

  • The warm bed and breakfast, the breakfast is as good as everyone said, and I have not eaten enough for two days. The garden can be seen in both rooms on the second floor, where you can see squirrels and many crows, as well as beautiful flowers. The homestay can be located on the google map without worrying about finding it. We used the hotel's chartered bus to and from the airport. Although it was a little expensive, it was convenient. After going out to the main road, there are a lot of sudden cars in the house. They are not going to detour according to the rules. You can find a lot of phone cards when you turn right on the main road. The owner of the home is very kind and always accompanied by a laugh.

    2019-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Very beautiful house, very good old lady, chat with you for breakfast. The only downside is that there are only two servants in the family when I go. I can only understand some basic words. There is a slight obstacle in communication. But the service is not said, but then, isn’t it that airbnb wants it?

  • A really stunning place beautifully decorated with lush garden and pool.. fab stay thank you

    Tim2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • No words can describe our experience. It exceeded all our expectations. We are seasoned travellers but never had such a fantastic experience. This will be truly hard to beat. Everything was absolutely perfect, from beautiful decor to tranquillity of the garden. There is nothing better than a hot fragrant milky and sugary tea in the garden beside the pool after a busy day in Colombo. And if this isn't enough, you can get pampered with local food by a chef on site. We truly recommend to arrange your food in the Villa. We were spoilt for choice and it all tasted fantastic. It is also reasonably priced. Our first day in Colombo we dined in the centre of Colombo and went for an upmarket restaurant. The food prepared by the chef in the Villa was much better than the one we had in the centre of Colombo. The Villa is located 30 - 45 min tuk tuk drive from the centre of Colombo and is very clean. It is well looked after by two staff members on site and by Oshi Mama - a jewell in the crown. She gives the place the homely feel. When you cross the main door you feel you returned home after a long spell of being away. Oshi Mama we love you!

    Marcin2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • We would totally recommend this place to all because its a huge , nice n artistic house at a good location. The host Oshi is a very kind n humble woman who always went out of the way to make us feel special , also we made good friends with the couple from Germany who were on their 5th visit to the house n u can guess about the great hospitality already. Even the care takers of the house wre very polite n took great care of us n cooked very good food too . One cn book this place without 2nd thoughts 👌🏻

  • Wonderful house, excellent hosts! Highly recommended!

    Lech2019-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • On the evening of our arrival, we were warmly welcomed by Nethruu's mom, her husband, and the staff. For us it was the perfect start for our trip through Sri Lanka. The accommodation is tucked away about an hour away from Colombo (by taxi / Uber). In the morning we could choose between typical Seidonesian breakfast or European. We chose the first one and it was delicious. Nethruu's mom gave us the tip for dinner, to go to a small food stand not far from the place where she even walked with us. She and the locals were so hospitable, she drove off for us and organized beer, and spontaneously a tuk tuk driver who took us to the next supermarket. We would choose again and again, for the small hidden jungle, perfect to arrive !!

    Romina2019-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic hosts, amazing food and overall excellent property! Quite enjoyed the stay at this beautiful home, simply book this if you plan to go to Colombo! Hospitality by Nethruu's parents was awesome and heart warming. Great experience!

    Sachin2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • This home is simply a tranquil oasis away from the hustle and bustle of Colombo. The common areas and pool are beautifully designed. The food, our dinners and breakfast, prepared by Chamin and Indi were excellent - some of the best curries we tasted in Sri Lanka. The hosts Oshi and Rohan were so friendly and very thoughtful and provided us with help in getting transport around and arranging onward taxi to Sigiriya. The bathrooms and bedrooms we had (adjoining bedrooms) were very basic and perhaps this is the only area I would suggest some updating. We would recommend Fern Cove to anyone wishing a quiet place to stay when visiting Colombo.

    The Surya Room is an en suite room on the third floor of the Beira House. This room, named after Surya our golden retriever, is full of light, life, and colour. Surya was originally the master bedroom of the house and has lovely views of the Beira lake from its own private balcony and plenty of space for relaxation. There is also ample storage and cupboard space for guests and a large bathroom.
    The Beira house has 3 other rooms where guests may be staying - including long stay guests. The Luna room (sleeps 2) is also available for bookings on AirBnB. There are several common areas including two large balconies, living room, a small garden, dining area, and kitchen for shared usage. The rooftop balcony is ideal for yoga under the Bo Tree, whilst the first floor balcony has a large terrace for sundowners and star gazing. There are card games (including local favourite Hora Deal), reading material, and TV in the living room. The kitchen includes a gas cooker, microwave, oven, kettle, water filter for drinking water, and plenty of crockery and cutlery for shared usage. The house is fully solar powered.
    The Beira House is in Colpetty, a vibrant neighbourhood of Colombo. There are plenty of dining options in the vicinity - Praneetha (some of the best local fare), Ramen Hamakaze (Japanese), and The Lagoon (seafood), are personal favourites within walking distance. Life Food is great for a late morning coffee and some healthy dining and Monkeybean is another café around the corner for coffee and snacks. The neighbourhood has grown around the Beira lake - ideal for an evening stroll, or a paddle around on a swan boat, before dropping into the serene Seema Malakaya for quiet meditative reflection. Other nearby attractions include the Gangaramaya Temple, the St. Michael's Church (Gal Palliya), and Viharamaha Devi park.
  • I had a very pleasant stay a Deshal's apartment in March 2020. The room is large and well equipped and has an outdoor patio with views over the lake. The lounge area is stylish and the kitchen well equipped. Deshal was very helpful and quick to respond to any questions. The location is perfect, near enough to walk to the nearby temples and shopping centre (including supermarket) or the coast for as sunset stroll. Deshal had left a manual with some very good suggestions for things to do as well. Totally recomendable!

    Hany2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • This place is very comfortable. I got a lot of great experiences. And a lounge on the 2nd floor is very vast. I could work in a comfortable place.

    Masaaki2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • We had a delightful experience staying at Deshal’s. The room was spotless when we arrived. Exactly how they show on the website. Deshal was really helpful in guiding us to the house at early hours in the morning, as well as arranging stuff we needed during our stay. Deshal and Minu have wonderfully curated a list of restaurants and bars in a notebook, which we found super useful for someone new to Colombo! The view from the Surya room is excellent as it oversees the Beira Lake. Location is perfect too — most of the must-see locations are within 10 minutes distance. A highly recommended place!

    Sebastien2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Dilo's Airbnb was the perfect place to start off our adventure in Sri Lanka! We arrived really late at night but she was still available when we landed at the airport and also managed to be awake when we arrived by a cheap Uber. It cost around 1200 LKR (= 6.10€) and took us about 50 minutes. Dilo welcomed us very warmly and we even had the chance to get the breakfast right the next morning—what a great hospitality! Although we only had two nights, the whole stay was really lovely and we were always free to ask away anything. Even when not asked verbally, Dilo helped out whenever she could. One night we left our two empty water flasks outside on the table and as soon as she arrived home, we had another refill waiting for us. This would be for sure a 6-star value Airbnb! Small room with everything you need in a urban area. It's close to the international Colombo airport CMB and only a couple of streets to supermarkets, a delicious vegetarian restaurant and train stations to head on from there. Plus a lovely and mindful host? Couldn't ask for more and would love to come visit again!

    Lars2020-02-17T00:00:00Z

    We have listed our other property as Roadster Colombo - a small city hotel with 16 rooms, elevator and additional amenities. Roadster Studio-XJ-S: We have listed our second room (same location) separately (Roadster Studio-Pagoda). XJ-S has a King-Sized bed/ spring-air mattress, fresh linen, attached toilet (solar hot water shower), basic toiletries, 4G wifi, a/c, tea/ coffee & drinking water. Roadster is walking distance to The Arcade and Race Course (pubs, restaurants, shops, cinemas) etc.
    Roadster Studio is a purpose built, two bed room outfit, detached from the main house. It is a brand new construction and launched in December 2016. It has its own private entrance and provides complete privacy from the main house. The compound houses several British, French and German classic sports cars manufactured in the 1950s, 60s and 70s. Most of the cars are convertibles, which the guests can view, with descriptions from the host.
    The location, although central, is quiet and peaceful, with interconnected residential lanes allowing guests to do an early morning jog around the neighborhood. Our neighbours are embassies, embassy residences, some government ministers and a temple.
  • Our stay at Chamira's place was lovely. The place was clean and private. The location was quiet and secluded yet still just a short walk from the main street and Arcade Independence Square. We were grateful for the AC during the hot days we faced in Colombo.

    Abhiramy2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Since I lived in Colombo 07 for 2 year, so I highly recommend this place because of its location, value for money and safety.

    Mayur2019-11-15T00:00:00Z
  • We spent one night at Isuru’s place and it had everything we needed. It was well located in town for the activities we wanted to do. There are a few flights of stairs to climb to get to the unit and all the neighbours are lovely and helpful with directions. Isuru was also very lovely and helpful, he responded quickly to questions sent by message or call. If you are a traveller that wants to spend all your time in a room, bring your own entertainment, it wasn’t a negative for us.

    Coralee2019-11-04T00:00:00Z

  • One really cannot go wrong with Romani’s apartment. It is not only extremely central but also highly secure, extremely comfortable with excellent beds and linens including down comforters, all basic necessities, great air conditioning, and with a spectacular view. Romani provided us some thoughtful treats on arrival and was very responsive. All in all it was a fantastic stay. Thanks!

    Wayan2019-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean, great location, easy check in and out. Will definitely be staying here the next time we are in Colombo.

    Steven2019-08-02T00:00:00Z
  • First of all, I’m glad I was even able to find this place - Had it not been for Mr. Romani, I would have not been able to maximize my short/impromptu trip. So thank you so much for everything. Me and my parents really appreciate your help and arrangements. Hospitality - From your very first interaction with Mr. Romani, one can tell that he’s very well experienced (excellent communication & on point). His attention to detail for everything is impeccable. He also arranged a driver (Kumara) for our trip, who was fantastic and helped us out right from our arrival until departure. Mr Romani was also very kind to follow up with usa and ensure we were comfortable, which was really nice of him. If you’re a foodie and like to explore good restaurants, Mr Romani is your man to ask. Thank you for your suggestions, my parents and I loved everything that we could try. My honest suggestion to anyone reading this - do not waste your time looking for expensive hotels. The location, views and value put together are unbeatable when compared to anything else right in the heart of Colombo. So if you’re lucky enough to even find any availability, then don’t even think twice. I’m most certainly going to share details about this with my friends who ever plan on visiting Colombo.

    This cozy bedroom has a little something special. On the far right is a perfect space to spend some quality time alone. This quiet corner used to be a prayer room which Isuru and Shana converted into a reading nook as a lovely addition to an already spacious and beautiful room with en-suite bathroom, air-conditioning and shared balcony. Each Srilax room has one of our curated books ready for your reading pleasure. It’s the little details that matter.
    Perfectly tucked away among a lush grove of tall trees, Srilax is a family friendly, laidback haven to rest your soul in between days of exploring and discovering Colombo. Bask in the lush surroundings with a hot cup of coffee and a favorite book in your hands. Dig into our delectable variety of dishes made from locally sourced, fresh produce prepared daily downstairs at Café Kumbuk. At Srilax, we are all about living in the sunshine and enjoying the simple pleasures of life in beautifully curated spaces for a city stay with Sri Lankan soul. Even though you have never been here before, it feels like you have come home. Stay a while and let your spirit rest.
    Srilax is located in Colombo, Srilanka. Nestled in the heart of the city in a secluded and calming setting, the allure of Colombo beckons from just a few feet away. You are at once sheltered from the commotion but just within reach of the flurry of activity waiting to be discovered. Downstairs is Café Kumbuk, one of Colombo’s most loved cafes, with the same easy tropical vibe as Srilax. Café Kumbuk offers a deliciously curated menu using locally sourced produce and spices, made fresh daily for you to enjoy.
  • Lovely clean room. Large firm bed. Excellent bathroom with great shower pressure. Simple but tasteful aesthetic. Wonderful cafe below with fresh tasty food. Just a lovely safe haven from which to explore the noise and busyness of Colombo. Charming and friendly staff is also a highlight especially the kind and very helpful Jay. I really enjoyed my stay.

    Katrina2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Even though I only stayed for one night - the experience has been wonderful and I will definitely come back to this place if in Colombo. The room was just the right size, shower had such lovely smelling shower gel - felt like I’m in an almond heaven. Every detail very well thought through and no extra unnecessary cluster.. The location is great and of course the kumbuk cafe downstairs makes a perfect combo!

    Aiste2020-02-29T00:00:00Z

    Jacob2019-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • Srilax is a very nice place. The room is very clean, modern and the interior is brand new. The bed is very comfy. A part of Srilax is a coffee shop. They have delicious food and great coffee. We had a perfect time in the accommodation. Eventhough it is stated differently in the airbnb insertion, breakfast was not included. But we got a 10% discount :)

    Quiet and nature friendly. Nature lovers please note. We feed the birds with fruit in the morning and the visitors are greeted by them at B'fast.
  • An oasis of genteel calm and greenery in the crazy city Colombo has become. The house is beautiful, on a private road and just off the interesting Torrington Avenue. There are clean green walks nearby but also convenient transport to various areas. Bambalapitiya is an easy bus ride away and Tuktuks are available metres away to take you anywhere. Make time to enjoy the delicious food cooked by the lovely housekeepers who both speak English and are there for whatever you need. The rooms are comfortable and clean but not modern. The bathrooms and decor are charmingly dated - so much nicer than the bland modern flats on offer. I can recommend Ranjit’s house and it would be perfect for a group of friends or two couples. I look forward to returning soon.

    Susan2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • The place is really nice for the start of traveling Sri Lanka. The green garden gives a good impression of the nature of the country. The breakfast, which you can get from the neighbor siva is really good. I can recommend you stay some nights here. We will come back!

  • This was a perfect place to stay for our first couple of nights in Sri Lanka. Quiet, clean, friendly and a 15min Tuk Tuk to Colombo Fort Station. Would certainly recommend and would happily me back again.

    Eric2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • I recommend this place to you! The location is quiet and the house is beautiful. The host is exceptional and the food is super good. No need to take a tuk tuk to get to the temples. It's a 30 minute walk that allows us to walk through the streets of Colombo in safety. On the other hand, the network is slow and the lack of air conditioning makes the rooms warm (luckily the fan was there). I really recommend this accommodation. You will not forget your experience!

    Flavie2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Ranjit's house is very conveniently located to Central Colombo. It is in a quiet area and a tuktuk ride from many food choices. The house itself is interesting in its decorations, it feels very homey. I would suggest asking for the breakfast, it is delicious and ample.

    John2019-12-22T00:00:00Z

    Lavonca is a luxurious boutique hotel located in the heart of Colombo. It is adorned with unique furniture and world-class amenities to offer you unmatched comfort at an affordable price. The rooftop that overlooks the busy streets of Colombo provides the perfect ambience to unwind. Lavonca with its 10 rooms and intimate setting is the ideal haven for both modern and business travellers. Lavonca also dwells with a unique roof-top pool and a sun terrace with the city view of more than 180°.
  • We’ll put it plain and simple: Lavonca is a great place to stay if you want to spend a few days in CMB. What we liked best, is the location: right in the heart of the city but in a silent and nice little neighborhood. Rooms are clean and comfortable and staff is friendly and hospitable. On the roof top you’ll find a small pool with some beds. Great to have a cool down after discovering the city. One small thing: if you have trouble climbing stairs, you might want to ask for a room on the first floor. Lavonca has 4 floors ( pool ares is on the 4th) but no elevator. No problem for us but good to know for those who are less able to climb stairs maybe.

    Lot2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Really fantastic staff, very good breakfast, clean nice room. We didn’t spend any time in the shared rooftop as the pool was very small and it was busy. It doesn’t look quite as nice as the photos but overall still a great stay. Slightly quieter area. Easy to Uber/tuk tuk anywhere which is too far to walk.

    Phoebe2020-03-10T00:00:00Z

    Евгений2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great hotel in a central location. Even though we arrived a little earlier than planned, we were immediately able to check in. We were on our honeymoon and got a heart of roses on the bed, great! The stay was rounded off by the great staff, who were always super friendly and of course the pool on the roof terrace! A little more expensive but definitely worth the trip! Many thanks for everything Palmi and Eric

  • Leonard went out of his way to help us as my wife was not feeling well. We would definitely stay again. Clean and modern.

  • This boutique hotel is perfect for a short or perhaps even a longer stay in Colombo. The location is also perfect with many good restaurants nearby. The room was super clean and modern. We enjoyed the pool which was large enough to cool off in (although the water is quite warm) after a long day of walking around. The breakfast was delicious with the staff being very attentive and friendly. The staff also provided tips for getting around and could answer just about all your questions. Security is good too, with full time staff there onsite. A great value in our opinion.

Also helped us book a taxi to go outstation. Her mother is really sweet, helped us check-in and even dropped us in her car to a restaurant nearby for lunch as it was hot outside! She constantly was in touch to ensure all our needs were taken care of and was prompt with her replies at any given time in the day.

    Sidonie2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • The stay at Villa Raha is very good! The equipment works wonderfully and a lot of pressure for water (which we have not always had in Sri Lanka). The staff is very friendly. No complaints !

The list of local places to eat and shop is extensive and I had a very nice dinner on the recommendation. The amenities are worth a mention too, as everything is super modern down to Apple TV in the room!

  • Nelun's place is very central, comfortable and private. Communication and check-in were smooth. There's a little kitchenette which is enough to make basic meals. The whole place has a bohemian/artisanal feel to it, which is nice. I will return. Highly recommended.

    Bruce2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Was a nice place to end my trip in Sri Lanka. The host was very good especially when we locked ourselves out of our room... She sorted out that issue very quickly. We also like that breakfast bits were provided.

    Charlie2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • A good option if you need a simple accommodation for a short time in Colombo. The room is comfortable and decorated with a lot of charm. The location is not central but it is easy to move tuk tuk. Nelun was very friendly, and willing to help us when we missed our train in particular.

    Louis2019-06-16T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, close to everything we needed. Peaceful neighbourhood with friendly neighbors. Nelun is an amazing host. Her family very welcoming as well! I recommend!

    Drew2019-06-05T00:00:00Z
  • Nelun and family are wonderfully hospitable, welcoming, interesting, delightful hosts, including also their very friendly dogs. The amenities, locality, and living space is as described, and most comfortable. I love the artwork on the walls in every room! As a resident of Sri Lanka, spending part of each year there, I feel this is excellent value, and I will certainly be happy to return whenever I am in Colombo! I am recommending Nelun’s place to everyone.

    KaMuRa2019-04-20T00:00:00Z
  • We booked 3 nights at Nelun's studio (we didn't sleep the 3rd night though – our departure flight was at 1:00 am!). Nelun met us on arrival and made us feel very welcome. The studio (with its own separate entrance) is attached to the tropically designed family home. The studio is exactly as the pictures show (decorated with lovely antique furniture & interesting art – one thing to note though – the bed is quite small, so if you're tall, you're feet may hang over the edge!). We enjoyed the little kitchenette – Nelun left the small bar fridge well stocked with provisions (filtered water, homemade iced tea (so refreshing!), fruit, eggs, milk, bread, butter & jam) for us to make breakfast at our leisure. We also cooked our evening meals in – after 6 weeks of eating rich coconut milk/cream based curries & rice, it was heaven to eat a piece of fresh pan cooked chicken and a basic salad (tomato, cucumber, capsicum & red onion). A well stocked Cargills (supermarket) is a 5 minute walk from the studio. The neighbourhood is very quite (allowing for a peaceful night's sleep). Transport is plentiful – either grab a tuk tuk off the street, or Nelun can provide you with the names/numbers of a couple of reliable drivers. Cinnamon Gardens neighbourhood is walkable from the studio, but to go further afield (Fort & Pettah) you'll need transport. Nelun kindly arranged our taxi to the airport which was greatly appreciated. The booking was made a couple of days in advance, but on our day of travel, Nelun rang the taxi company to make sure they'd not forgotten our booking. A couple of minutes after our scheduled pick up time, she also rang the driver (she was away from the house) to make sure we were on board – amazing service! The taxi driver was the nicest (and most honest) man you could ever wish to meet. Making sure we had our passports and tickets, and hadn't left anything behind (both before leaving the studio and then again at the airport). He also insisted we pay him LKR 50 less than we'd been quoted, as the tolls were cheaper at the hour we were travelling! Bless him – we told him to keep it, and added it to his tip. Overall we enjoyed our stay, and are most grateful to Nelun for accepting our booking, even though we arrived on a Sunday! Nelun responds to all communications promptly, and she provides you with helpful pre-arrival information. Oh, and if you're a dog lover – Nelun has 2 very playful Beagles that love socks (hahaha!).

    Heather2019-04-03T00:00:00Z
  • This is THE HOUSE I’m looking for in Colombo area. Don’t hesitate, book it!!!! (It was a bit hard to find it in the beginning coz Jessica kinda mixed us with some other clients who stayed in another house of Nelun, so we went to the other house which was not for us in the beginning. Other than that everything was prefect. Nelun was a very nice lady, pity that we couldn’t meet her and had more conversation. )

    Ran2019-03-09T00:00:00Z

    Anna2020-02-28T00:00:00Z

    Rajiv2019-12-25T00:00:00Z
  • We had a comfortable stay at Francesca’s place. She was flexible and checked us in at an odd hour. The place is located in a great central location, and I will recommend this place if you’re planning to stay in Colombo for a few nights. All amenities are available in the house - from a hair dyer to an iron. Great, warm host who made us feel at home. Absolutely recommended!

  • They've got all the basics covered. I got some fruits and snacks from Cargills and kept them in the room cause I needed a quick breakfast before I checked out. Great location!

    Lakvin2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • The rooms are very nice. Simple but stylish decor. It's great having the Black Cat Cafe downstairs. Good food and great coffee. Colombo 7 is a very nice area, although not right in the centre of things (but only a short Tuk Tuk ride away. It really depends on what you want. I would certainly stay at Black Cat again. It's also well managed.

Also there were a special adapter, so don’t worry about charging your phones. Location is good — there is a nice lake, where you can meet a sunset. Also we enjoyed dinners in Life food cafe — it’s right near the apartments. We definitely recommend this place to live. Sorry for my English :)

But I am really thankful for Liza for doing everything possible for making our stay as comfortable as possible. I would highly recommend the place for all what it offers and the hospitality provided by the host.

    Jenny2019-03-05T00:00:00Z

    Mohamed2019-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • With a historical Buddhist site stone throw away and a good food cafe just next door. Colombo’s short stay visitors couldn’t ask for a better location and place. A 10min walk or a 5mins tuktuk will bring you to the Colombo’s newest shopping mall colombo City Center with 6 screen multiplex. Because it’s closer to the Colombo it self (by tuktuk) of course you can explore the entire city very quickly. Don’t judge the book from the cover. The entrance does feel like you are entering a strange location only to be greeted with a hidden splendour. ;) The apartment feels like something from a modern condor in Singapore with all the amenities you can think of and there are even Sri Lankan luxury bath room spa items to be enjoyed. Almost like an SPG 6* hotel. With very minor touches that can even elevate this accommodation even higher. No visitor will be left feeling that they were actually in Colombo.

  • Sumith, the caretaker, was ready & waiting for us when we arrived. He gave us a brief tour around the place & made sure I got his number as he expected we would be tired after our 5 hour journey. Whenever we went out in the morning, Sumith would be there to greet us & also calls us around dinnertime to make sure we know how to get back from where we were at. Even though we only had a short stay, Sumith really made it an amazing one :)

  • Our experience has been great! The host was super helpful as we had to check in early morning and he totally helped us out with that. Nice and cozy apartment, it was just enough for two of us. Not far from downtown, lots of tuk-tuks just by the house. We highly recommend this host and his apartment!

  • A compact, comfortable and centrally located apartment in Colombo 3. It's a vibrant, bustling neighbourhood in the city, but the apartment block is blissfully quiet and peaceful such that one can relax and unwind after a long day's exploring. Includes all the essential household amenities one may need during your stay - including a washing machine, drying rack and iron/ironing board - all of which come in quite handy if you've been travelling across several countries for a while or plan to stay in Sri Lanka longer than a few days. Easily accessible by UberEats drivers if you're in the mood for some takeout, plus only a short Uber ride to some great local restaurants (Park Street Mews), as well as a trendy bar at the Galle Face Hotel (King of the Mambo) where one can enjoy the most beautiful sunset over the ocean (with a more Cuban vibe than anything I experienced in my visit to Havana earlier this year!). The main Colombo Fort railway station is also a relatively short tuk-tuk ride away if you're keen to catch a train to Kandy or highway bus to Galle. or All in all, highly recommended.

  • Nice appartment in nice neighbourhood! Would definitely stay there again

    Reiner2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • This place has a fantastic location and is well equipped for a stay in Colombo. One thing to note is that there is a frosted door to the bedroom that has a light outside that stays on all night. Not a huge issue but worth knowing about. We would definitely stay here again, Roma was responsive and available when we had questions.

    Brooke/Shanesh2019-12-19T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed at Roma’s for almost 2 weeks while on a work trip. The flat was clean and comfortable, having the big living space and kitchen was a big plus. As was the aircon! In addition, Roma and Manu were very helpful when I needed anything. Flat is in a good central location with a small store 2 mins round the corner for essential!

  • Thank you for the great stay!

    Sivhuang2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • Simply amazing place in the heart of Colombo. All the interesting places to visit are nearby. Located in a really elite part of the town. Squeaky clean minimalistic space. Really thoughtful arrangements and without any hassle. Breakfast was a really nice touch. Having to pay extra for the electric bill is a bit peculiar but not a big deal. Overall a great experience. Will definitely recommend.

    Sushant2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • The first thing we noticed when we entered was the cleanliness of the place. Checking in was also very hassle free. Another added bonus is the location. There are quite a few cafes, bars and local spots within touching distance. Yes the lift is a bit quirky, but the staff and the owner is very helpful incase you need any help. We would love to come back here again.

    Sayan2019-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • Good location, clean apartment and helpful host and caretaker.. definitely coming back. 😊♥️

    Fathimath2019-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment conforms to photos and descriptions. It is very well located in Colombo since: -Tuk Tuk in range at the bottom of the apartment, for improvised need. -quartier cinnamon gardens which is the most opulent of Colombo. -Shops nearby Manju knows a very pleasant, professional and reliable driver at all levels (punctuality, rates) who brought us from the airport to the apartment and who was available during our stay for any need in the city ( when we took a train, he came with us to the ticket office so that everything went well because not easy trains in Sri Lanka ...) In short: beautiful address for 4 people!

    Stéphanie2019-08-16T00:00:00Z

She has also kept the pamplets ofvarious restaurants just in case someone wants to order food from out. We had a wonderful stay at her place.

    Rimple2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • The Place is actually a " Stunning Apartment". Before we actually checked In, we were under the Impression that it would be like any other apartment, but were surprised when we got into the place. An immaculately & aesthetically kept place with all the Amenities that can be called " HOME ". Super Clean & well kept. Nice sitting area with Sofa & Loads of Local Magazines to read all about Srilanka. Menu's from different Local Restaurants to call & order food, a Fridge, Toster, Hot water kettle, microwave, gas oven & full set of cutlery. Cozy Bedroom & those Lil Teddies On the bed was so thoughtful of the Host, who knew that Me & My Daughter were travelling & it added a sense of emotional touch. The bedroom was well lit with Sunlight during the day & nice lights to deck up the Evenings. The room had a TV with Satellite connection & AC. The Bathroom was big, clean & well equipped. The Host helped us with local guidance to go to all the various place that we had intended & also helped us with various shopping destinations. Over all " Priyanka JI" is an absolute Lovably & Super Host. Look forward to staying back on our next visit. Thanks Shirin & Soumendu

    Soumendu2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • We had a very good stay at Priyanka's place, it is very nice and clean and communication was easy. Her brother was right next door and made sure we had everything we needed. Definitely recommended

    Peter2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Priyanka's place was fantastic. It was comfortable and close to convenient shops and some great restaurants, there was a pharmacy and supermarket in shot walking distance and some tuk tuks hung out by the very end of the street from very early in the morning, enabling us to take our 6am train from a Colombo to Trincomalee with no issues at all! Communication was prompt and excellent, and what with Priyanka's home being attached to her holiday home she was just next door if we needed anything at all. She offered a laundry service for just 500 SLR per basket (under £2) and turned our washing around in 1 day. Highly recommend! Thank you so much!xx

Small kitchen to take care of your daily breakfast, tea & coffee. Check in was really smooth. Getting an Uber or Pick me was really easy. I did not meet Chandula but Thevuni was very welcoming & friendly. She was very responsive and helped me in suggesting near by attractions and places to visit. I would definitely recommend Chanthe to anyone and would love to stay here again. Thanks Thevuni for taking great care and for letting me stay at your lovely place.

  • Thuveni was extremely responsive and an amazing host. From the very early check-in as I arrived in Colombo after a whole night of travel, this was highly appreciated. Everything was clean, place was easy to find with a TukTuk/Google map, bed was comfy, and all was great. Furthermore the hosts are extremely kind and of great help. I would recommend that place to anyone!

  • We stayed here on our last night in Sri Lanka and we couldn't be happier. This place exceeded our expectations. The room was super clean and cozy and the common area had the necessary amenities - fridge, iron, hot water etc. The caretakers who were looking after the place were very helpful and friendly. Location wise, it's away from the city buzz which is nice. Quiet and safe place. Definitely value for money. Such a pity that we only stayed here for a night. Thank you very much for hosting us! Definitely recommend! :)

    Shankari2020-03-10T00:00:00Z

  • Great start to the vacation. New apartment with several rooms that lead into a common room. Nice concept. However, it leads to the fact that it is relatively noisy when people get up at different times. The room is very clean and has a very comfortable bed. The size is sufficient. Very nice young team and a very good contact via the mail system. Competent, very friendly and always contactable with a quick response. We make a recommendation.

    The Luna room is an en suite room on the ground floor of the Beira House. This room is named after our first Golden Retriever, Luna. The Luna room is a cozy, mellow, and peaceful space. It is adjoining the small garden and has direct access to it. With a king size bed and a generous bathroom, the Luna room comfortably sleeps two people.
    The Beira house has 3 other rooms where guests may be staying - including long stay guests. The Surya Room (sleeps 2) is also available for bookings on AirBnB. There are several common areas including two large balconies, living room, a small garden, dining area, and kitchen for shared usage. The rooftop balcony is ideal for yoga under the Bo Tree, whilst the first floor balcony has a large terrace for sundowners and star gazing. There are card games (including local favourite Hora Deal), reading material, and a TV in the living room. The kitchen includes a gas cooker, microwave, oven, kettle, water filter for drinking water and plenty of crockery and cutlery for shared usage. The house is entirely solar powered.
    The Beira House is in Colpetty, a vibrant neighbourhood of Colombo. There are plenty of dining options in the vicinity - Praneetha (some of the best local fare), Ramen Hamakaze (Japanese), and The Lagoon (seafood), are personal favourites within walking distance. Life Food is great for a late morning coffee and some healthy dining and Monkeybean is around the corner for coffee and snacks. The neighbourhood has grown around the Beira lake - ideal for an evening stroll, or a paddle around on a swan boat, before dropping into the serene Seema Malakaya for quiet meditative reflection. Other nearby attractions include the Gangaramaya Temple, the St. Michael's Church (Gal Palliya), and Viharamaha Devi park.

  • At the end of our three-week trip through Sri Lanka, we spent two nights in the accommodation of Arjuna and his wife - luckily! The little house is a quiet retreat in the middle of the metropolis Colombo. The welcome was warm, the room very clean and many sights within walking distance. Both of us were very accommodating both in terms of price and check-out. We felt very comfortable!

  • This place was clean, comfortable, and full of amazing books. Gayathri was a very friendly and welcoming host. We loved that it was on a quiet side street away from the heart of everything but easy to get to cool spots nearby. We hope to come back!

    Drue2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Great location and a considerate host. We reached around 2 am in the airport but were picked up as soon as we stepped out of our terminal at the Colombo airport. We were able to stay a couple of hours longer and catch some much needed sleep before we set off to Mirissa.

    Tapasya2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • This is a lovely place to stay in Colombo. Bright spacious room in a central location and wonderful host too. Thanks again to Gayathri for a wonderful stay

  • Gayathri’s place has everything you will need for your visit to Colombo. It was a very welcoming home base from the cupboards full of books to the cozy space itself to Gayathri’s very friendly and helpful conversation. She helped me with an airport transfer when I was leaving her place and accommodated giving me breakfast early when I was off to my days adventure at an early hour! Thanks for everything!

    Erica2019-10-29T00:00:00Z

  • Lovely house with warm and friendly hosts. Would stay there again in a heartbeat!

    Rechelle2019-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • Gayathri’s home is indeed charming in a nice neighbourhood in Colombo. They were very accommodating about the early check in and prepared a full breakfast every morning. The room is cozy, cool in the summers and a great place to read a book when it is raining outside! Would highly recommend if visiting Colombo.

  • Thank you so much. It was really comfortable to stay there. Staff were so nice and friendly. I really love the cafe downstairs. So tasty!!! So fancy!!! Hopefully I want to come back. I definitely recommend the villa.

    Makiko2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • If you’re in Colombo, this is a great spot! The design of the hotel, food and hospitality made this place a treat. Recommend completely!

    Gabrielle2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • If you are considering any other options for your stay in Colombo, ignore them all and book Villa Raha immediately. Literally everything about this place exceeded all expectations I had – and the pictures are pretty accurate! It is located so close to all the important bits of the city, but I don't know why you would want to leave the hotel at all. I wanted to stay in the hotel for my entire trip. It is decorated so beautifully. The pool is so serene and peaceful, with a lovely water feature that you can hear from your room. Very meditative. Plants everywhere. Cosy sit-out area. There's a café too, and the food is so amazing. I wanted to eat every meal there. The room itself is designed so well, each one of their rooms is different. I stayed at the Crystal Suite, which has a really large bathroom complete with bathtub! The pillows and bed linen are so soft, I slept so well. The curtains make the room pitch black at night. There's also a 55-inch TV with Apple TV and Netflix! Blazing fast internet, too. They've really thought of everything. Luay is a wonderful host; you absolutely should have a chat with him. He is super friendly and will give you fantastic recommendations for what to do in Colombo. He chats with you, figures out what you like, and gives you recommendations accordingly. And when you come back in the evening, Walid (the night shift guy) gives you a Lindt chocolate! If ever I come back to Colombo, it will be specifically to stay at Villa Raha again. It's a place I will never forget.

    Sanjana2019-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • Imrah and Luay’s mansion is magnificent. It’s gorgeous, located in a great place a little away from the main road (Galle Road) but still very close to many stores, restaurants, clubs, and sightseeing spots. The suite we stayed in was beautiful and spacious, loved having Netflix and a hot tub, and Imrah and Luay (and their little boy!) are such wholesome, lovely, and interesting people. Definitely try to sit down and have a chat with them if you can. And you MUST listen to their tips on local places to visit - they really know what they’re talking about!

    Ahmad2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • Villa Raha is a jewel, hiding almost in plain sight in Colombo 4. We were absolutely floored as soon as we stepped through the main doors--stylish interiors, ambient music, a very cute pool, and very kind and hospitable staff. We were impressed further by our room--the decor was so sleek and on point, and everything was impeccable. The staff were very nice and accommodating. Luay himself would be around and greet and check on guests. We loved our stay here and wish we could've hung out for longer! Highly recommended!

    Kimberly2019-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • Loving the place so far. A true gem in Colombo. The owners are most friendly and the food is great too. The rooms are very well designed and always clean. Definitely a great place to stay in Colombo.

    Remco2019-06-23T00:00:00Z
  • A little gem off the main road, quiet environment, splendid decoration and superb room. We stayed in the crystal suite, which even looked better than on the pictures. Both hosts welcomed us in a friendly way, gave us informations when needed and run the place like pros! I had a great stay and can definitely recommend this place. Stuti!
