We spent the first week of our honeymoon in Sri Lankan hotels and decided to book a guesthouse in Colombo to finish our tour. Garden guesthouse was absolutely perfect.

Very good location, with direct access to "airport" road (30+ minutes), two minutes walk to nearest (metered) tuc-tuc road (takes you everywhere for a couple of dollars), and in easy walking distance to many good official (and hidden) sightseeing spots. And yet, in a very quiet area! Very personal atmosphere and decor,even with an indoor fountain and a lit-up garden.... More

I stayed for 1 night before my flight back from Colombo and enjoyed a nice and clean room and the hospitality of the very friendly and welcoming owners. Very special place which I can recommend to everyone who likes to stay in a personal (and decoration-wise quite unusual) setting.

All in all we were very content with our stay at the Garden Guest House. The rooms are very cozy and the breakfast is excellent. Chitrupa, the owner, is very firendly and helped us to make the most out of our stay in Colombo (tips about Tuk Tuk rates, good restaurants nearby, directions to temples and other sights). Thanks!
