The room is really spacious, big comfy bed, quiet, lots of light (with blackout curtains for when you don't want light). There are 3 great verandahs to lounge on if you want a quiet outdoor moment. Great location. Leafy and green. Can walk to lots of places or use an Auto rickshaw or Uber to get anywhere in the city. The owners are friendly... lots of advice for food, travel, shopping etc. Downstairs at the Black Cat cafe, you can sit for hours enjoying the awesome coffee (and beautiful food). Next time we are in Colombo, we'll definitely stay here. Loved it.

Very nice place in a quiet neighborhood. Beautiful design and great café downstairs. The bathroom sink was a bit improvised when we arrived but was fixed the next day.

Great location in a safe neighbourhood. Very nice breakfast in the cafe downstairs. We also liked the fact that they provided recommendations of places to eat and drink on the big board, which lead us to have dinner at Flamingo House. Would definitely stay here again.

Really nice place very close to central Colombo. The room was clean - excellent shower and comfortable bed - and the staff in the Café downstairs who arranged check-in, etc., were friendly and informative. There is a nice communal upstairs area with ideas, information and nice areas for relaxing in. Excellent base for exploring Sri Lanka's capital! Thanks!
