We stayed here for two nights after arriving in Sri Lanka. Guest house is ok, clean rooms and AC. Close to the beach, not so close to the center. Owner was kind (even spoke Dutch), unfortunately he left after one night, leaving us with a bill including 10% tax (which wasn't mentioned) and a breakfast served including frozen juice. I... More

The room was clean and quite spacious, which was nice. The guesthouse is also located near the bars and restaurants. We stored our luggage in the office, since we had an evening flight, but the office was not locked and there was nobody there to watch it, so we had to take our valuables with us all day. Also, we...

We stayed here for one night only more or less in transit to Anuradhapura. Our A/C did not work and the owner simply moved us to another room and was very apologetic. He even brought up a cold beer as a goodwill gesture. The room was fine, a little basic, but clean and well located. The owner also assisted us... More

Accidentally we reached to this place. We never thought of starting our vacation with this hotel. Terrible room with transparent Windows and Door. Lot of Mosquito. If you are bachelor and looking for very economical options then please go ahead with this hotel. Not a good option for family.

We spent there one night in late october when we arrived in Sri Lanka. Plus : We got a nice double room, clean. Wifi worked correctly. Breakfast : coffee, bread, butter, jam and eggs was good. Not so many tourists, we got a good deal for a double room with AC and breakfast. Some staff was helpful. On sundays, the... More

Stayed here for one week. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location is good with walking distance to the beach, restaurants and bars. Rooms are big, clean and good value. Good internet connection too. My room had a fridge also.

I arrived late into Colombo airport and had to leave for Galle the next morning, so chose to stay the night close to the airport in quaint little Negombo. Turned out to be a good decision. Negombo is really laid back and relaxing with a nice stretch of beach and has a happening fish market where fishermen bring their catch... More

I stayed for several days here. The staff is incredibly trustworthy and helpful. The rooms are very big and very clean. I traveled around Sri Lanka and stayed in budget hotels this one was by far the best. Good internet access too, which I used a lot! And prices are not expensive. Also, I want to recommend if you are... More
