awesome place, inspiring building, I did not see anything like it in Sri Lanka. The room rate is 2750 rps (including tax) and for that price the rooms are great value. It is kind of a home stay, so there are not many rooms available, and since it is very popular, book at least 1 week ahead and make sure... More

This guesthouse will stay with me long after I leave. Incredible decor inside - open plan, cool and breezy (very desirable in hot colombo!). With an indoor tropical garden! The antique furniture (some from Sri Lanka's Dutch period) and family photographs are divine, and the friendly owner will answer any questions you have and tell you many interesting stories. She...

Lovely house, clean, great quite, open-air place to stay. The old lady that owns it will talk your ear off so be prepared but she (and the house) have some wonderful history to hear about. I would recommend it for someone wanting a quiet space. No food stores are near so you need to walk / tuk tuk to get... More

Stayed here for two nights on a recent trip to Sri Lanka - and was one of the most memorable parts of our trip. The house is fantastic - something out of a magazine - and I felt it to be a privilege to stay in this family home of the 80 year old owner of the house. The woman... More

We arrived here only to be told that they were fully booked. Even though we called a few days before our booking mysteriously disappeared. After bout 20minutes the lady discovered that our name had indeed been written down but then crossed out. The most frustrating part of the situation was that the women and her staff weren't trying to help... More

As pointed out, bookings will be mixed at this place, so Your not guaranteed a room until you have it. Call to confirm the same day. This is a very integresting place to stay. The owner welcomes you and will gladly tell about Sri Lanka, tour the uniqe house and her familiy. This makes the place a truly uniqe experience.... More

This is definitely a different guest house. If you are interested, the owner (an 80+ year old lady) will tell you everything about her family and how she got into possession of Victorian age furniture and elephant tusks. But other than that, the rooms are really nice and tidy, nice to look into a garden when you wake up. The... More

Myself and my partner have stayed with Sunetra (the land lady) of Parisare on 3 occasions now, and on each occasion we have had a brillliant time! The reviewer who titled their review "A refugee in Colombo" is ridiculous and this is really not a fair judgement of this B&B. I agree with another reviewer that Sunetra's helper Peter should...

It is very hard to know quite what to say about Parisare. It is owned by an 80 plus year old lady, who has opened up her very different home in affluent Cinnamon Gardens to travellers. She is helped by a maid and young man, Peter but unfortunately she is becoming rather forgetful..hence people who prebook sometimes turn up to... More
