Well it's to warn you fellow-travelers about low practice this guest is capable of using. We came to Negombo around 10 p.m. after very long flight only to find out that our booking was cancelled by its owner/manager without any notification sent to us. The guy said that he tried to charge my credit card several days before our arrival...

Good hotel to stay after long flight. Close to the airport and beautiful beach nearby. The manager and other people in the hotel were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very good. In the dormitory I took it for additional cost US $3 (you pay in local currency, but they count everything via dollar). There are beautiful private rooms with...

If you have landed in Colombo and need a cheap, clean place to stay for one night before traveling further, look no further. A bit of a slow check in process both times I have stayed but rooms are modern, clean and tidy. I had air conditioning, my own bathroom, and a private balcony with cracking views of the beach...

This is the second time we have stayed at this guest house (previously 3 years ago). They have updated their rooms which are clean and comfortable. Air conditioning, fan, lights and hot water all worked well. The mattresses are a dream which is not a given in SL. It was quiet and the service was good. Things that might prevent...

We booked the place via booking.com. Email conversation followed. Me: how much is the airport transfer? Host: xx usd. Please confirm you need it Me: i confirm. Tell me the driver phone number!

Just 1 min walk to the beach side. Nice view from the roof. The owner is friendly and shared plenty of helpful information with travellers. Staff there are very nice as well. Some people said the public bathroom condition works not that well, but it worked perfectly to me honestly.

The reason we chose to stay in Negombo was that it was close to the beach and close to travel to the airport as if was just a one day trip for us. Run by a middle aged man and an old lady, this place is right in the centre of things. The beach is jus a street away. Lots...
