“Nice place close to airport”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

We stayed there 1 night and everything was perfect. We payed 4420 rupies for spotlessly clean room with A/C. We did not ate there because it was quite expensive (eastern and western breakfast was between 600-900 rupies for 1 person). Staff was very kind and helpful.

Having flown in late to Colombo and with a plan to catch an early train down South, we decided to stay at the Neo Holiday Home taking into account convenience and cost.

We had some challenges getting a taxi at the airport - the companies weren't familiar with the location and the quoted rates seemed somewhat high for the distance we were going. With it being so late, we decided to forgo any hard bargaining and after the taxi driver called for directions, we made it to the Neo Holiday Home.

The place isn't fancy or special in any way but it's clean, safe & friendly. Unfortunately, there was a loud blasting stereo (or some sort of 20-30 minute long announcement) in the neighborhood that woke my wife and I up and kept us up for awhile. I'm thinking it was a one-off situation but I figured I'd provide that warning for anyone who would potentially stay here. Again. . .friendly, safe and clean but potentially bothersome nighttime noises.

With a late flight into Colombo and very early morning flight out this was a great find for me. The small inn was 10-15 mins from airport and was spotless and well signed. They even cooked some great meals and provided some good travel tips. :-) Train station into city is 100 meters away and I survived rush hour into city and a quick transfer to Galle.

I look forward to my next trip to Neo!!!

Close to the airport and very friendly owners. Also our flight was delayed and Ananda arranged for someone to be on reception when we arrived at 5 am-thanks Amanda! Clean rooms and very quiet. Perfect for an airport transit stop.

Close to Liyanagemula railway station. I chose to stay in their annexe round the corner and down a quiet lane. Very good value at 1800/- for a spacious clean and comfortable fan room in a large detached house. After a good breakfast served on the dot of 6.30am as requested, I strolled up to Haseline Road and picked up a tuk tuk for the 2km to the airport for 80/-, but there are frequent buses.

I stayed in this hotel for one night before leaving Sri Lanka in January 2013. The hotel is very nice - a small, very clean, has everything you need. I wanted to go to Colombo before leaving, the owners tell me where and how to get there and what to see, and were very kind and welcoming. Lovely people! I am well rested before a long flight. I recommend!

we stayed here twice during our visit to sri lanka, and we were absolutely delighted with the hotel and its wonderful young owners. definitely recommended as the best place to stay when you need to be near the airport.

neo holiday home is about 10 minutes from the airport. we were picked up right after arrival even though our flight arrived 40 minutes late, and were promptly given cool orange juice when we got there.

the hotel has 4 rooms, each room has an en suite bathroom, is pleasantly decorated, very clean, spacious, has cable tv, ref (on request), fan, functioning air con and smells very good-- a sure sign that the owners know what guests look for, and they take extra effort to provide it. all these, plus unbeatable service and genuine kindness from amanda and her staff for only $34 a night.

servings for their meals were more than generous, filling and tasty. we liked their chicken with vegetable salad.

neo holiday home is definitely an excellent hotel with caring owners who reflect the best of the sri lankan people and their hospitality. even our driver, ranjith (cel no.0777-615884) who was with us in 4 different hotels throughout our stay in sri lanka, said that the owners are truly good people.
