Negombo is better than the dusty and chaotic city center of the Colombo for the holiday makers. Hotels location was walking distance to the beach. Also around 7-8 US $ from the airport by tuk tuk and approx. 15 minutes ride. My room was large also bathroom was same, A/C worked well. Break fast was simple but OK. and walking... More

Only stayed one night. Hotel is close to but not on the beach. Nice, friendly staff. Adequate, simple breakfast. A/C which was good. Close to bus station (rs200 tuk tuk). Hot water only in shower, out of both taps! I'd still stay there again.

This guest house is run by a friendly family. The rooms are spacious, the ac works well, and breakfast was lovely. The bathrooms are a bit dated but it's good value for money, and you're not paying for a five star resort.

We loved this place, we booked for 11 nights and enjoyed every single one of them. As others have said if you are looking for luxury then you might be disappointed but if you are looking for clean and comfy then look no further. What really makes the NYBC a winner is the outstanding hospitality of the staff and nothing... More

The place is more a home stay than a hotel. They had some four rooms in all. Madhu is extremely friendly and spent a whole lot of time chatting up. The others are good too. The place is clean. The rooms have air con but they did not work well. Plus there wasn't a fan. So, with the poor Ac... More

NYBC is a typical Sri Lankan guesthouse. Owners are very nice and helpful. Deluxe room I stayed at had everything that is necessary - shower (though not always hot), AC (worked well), comfortable bed, nice balcony where breakfast was served. There is parking space and wifi also. Guesthouse is located 2 min walk to the beach and many shops, cafes... More
