“Convenient for Airport”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

We stayed here for 2 nights while waiting for a flight. Very close to airport. Just 10 min. There are two blocks of accommodation. That near reception and a separate block close by. We stayed on the 1st floor of the main building. The food was fine. The room was clean with good a/c and nice balcony. Staff were friendly. There was some building work going on in the grounds but not too disturbing. Our main problem was we were at first in Room 105 at the far end of the corridor. At night there was some kind of plumbing issue and there was a VERY loud noise of water rushing that every 40sec or so that sounded like it was generating a pressure build up for the water supply. We asked to be moved and this was done without any problem and they were helpful in moving all of our belongings to a room close to reception (109) which was much much quieter. If you have a room down the far end away from reception I'd ask to be moved or you may have a very nasty surprise in the early hours.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms at the far end of the first floor corridor near room 105 as very noisy. Go for a room cl...

Clean, tourist class hotel. On busy highway that is not walkable and noisy. Never got internet. There was always a different excuse on why it was out.
It was sold to me as Negambo and it is NOT. It was a long tuk-tuk ride to Negambo. Had I known, I would have picked something near the beach. I would only recommend the EuroStar if I had an early flight out of CMB. Very close by.

i was impressed by the staff. all way willing to help. very good English ,. food was avalable any time. and can be brought to the very clean rooms. the A/C works well. the 3rd floor gives the best views of the surrounding land. good three wheel or tuk-tuk service in to minuwongoda. and to the airport which is only 20 minutes way. tuk/tuk`s cost to the airport 600 ruppees. and to town 250 ruppess.
my overall impression as a transit hotel its one of the better ones. one thing to remember banks are closed saturdays and sundays the local ATM in town might not work with your credit card.
i found that some worked well and others simply said posses can not be completed. this means the ATM machine cant read your card. debit visa cards are also accepted in most larger towns.

Room Tip: choose this hotel if you coming into sri lanka or leaving as its only 20 minutes from the airport. t...

The flight schedule in and out of Columbo seems to be a nightmare - staying over-night in or around Columbo is probably a good idea as a result. Euro Star is quite a good option if you need such a place. 20 minutes from the airport. It is run quite professionally. Food is decent. The prices seem OK. The rooms are pretty spartan, but for an overnight stay this is fine, at least for me.

We were looking for a hotel to sleep for a few hours before our 4 am flight home out of Colombo airport. It is clean, staff is very friendly , they have a pool which the children enjoyed. Double room at 60usd. 10 min drive from airport. Not fancy but great family hotel for short stay.

The guest house, is literally 10 minutes from the airport. The rooms are spacious, enough and the wash room clean. But, the rats up on the roof kept me up the entire night. The internet works in the main building, and not in the next building. Internet costs LKR 500, which I felt was expensive. It costed me $45 for accommodation with breakfast, and transport from the airport. It was okay, and expensive for the experience I had.

Breakfast was decent, considering that not many guest houses offer breakfast in Sri Lanka.
Still it seems to be appropriate for travellers arriving at night to crash in for the night.
