We stayed at Colombo haven for two nights, our first and last night in Sri Lanka. It was great! The room was clean, comfortable and good value. But the best about staying at Colombo haven was the host. John really took good care of us, helped us to plan our trip (in a good way, without pushing us into anything).... More

Colombo Haven was definetly a haven from the frenetic Colombo. Although building works were nearby there was only the sound of occasional hammering. John our host could not do enough for us, giving us advice on where to visit in Colombo and had a wealth of knowledge about Sri Lanka in general. Breakfast was amazing, freshly prepared just for us.... More

Colombo Haven, a 4 apartment guesthouse at the end of a small unconspicuous lane, is operated by a retired Colombo born tour guide, John. After endless zigzags and bends down the hills from Teatrails in more than 4 hours, warm greetings from the friendly couple soon refreshed your vibes. They passionately told stories about previous visitors from all over the... More

I not only booked the B&B for one night, but also booked a full tour thruout Sri Lanka with Jonathan. He customized the itinerary to my liking and the prices were very reasonable. Pre-trip, all communication was thru email (quick responses) and payment was thru paypal. There was a bit of miscommunication about whether the itinerary included entrance fees and... More

I stayed the first two nights of my holiday here. I had the Banyon the first night and the Bamboo den on the second night.
