As soon as you enter this super nice old villa, you feel very welcomed. The staff is just so nice. The rooms are big, cool and clean. There is a nice veranda where you can relax from busy Colombo. Breakfast is included. Everything was perfect! Definitely recommendable!

We stayed in a triple room (no a/c) for our first night in Colombo, and liked it so much that we stayed here again at the end of our journey. The guesthouse is clean, and has a lovely central area where breakfast is served in the morning. There is also an outdoor area that you can use to sit back... More

We spent a night here and enjoyed it. Centrally located, but quiet. They've kept the character of the nice colonial building with old furniture and historical pictures. Staff are friendly and helpful. Very good value for rather pricey Colombo.

200+ year old Dutch villa, spartan yet spacious room, clean & tidy. Close enough to walk to the art market to the south and Galle Face to the north. We had a late night flight to catch, and Deepani was kind enough to let us leave our bags after checkout and have an evening shower - thanks so much!

We arrived at 1.00 am to a ready-made, cool room. It was so welcoming. The rooms are basic but clean and our room (4) was spacious (we are 2 adults and a child). The breakfast is simple and satisfactory, lots of toast, coffee/tea, jam and a boiled egg. The main common area is very pleasant with a large and comfortable... More

What an elegant old colonial building. The rooms are big, clean and the air-con is wonderful. Our front room was not noisy and had some beautiful old furniture. Deepani and her staff are lovely and she is so helpful. Having a cold beer on the verandah in the evening was a Colombo highlight for us. There is a supermarket, great... More

A great budget option. Beautiful property. Good location. Helpful staff. Clean rooms and facilities with AC and fan. The coffees and toasts at breakfast just kept coming =) The porch area is perfect for winding down after a long day or if you're taking a mid-day break.

The guest house owner was very friendly, helpful and welcoming. The room and all of the facilities were clean and tidy. It is definitely great value for money. You had free use of the fridge and drinking water was complimentary. Once we had checked out she let us use the showers and even organised us a tuk tuk to the... More
