“Spacious apartment, great location”

The apartment is extremely spacious, located close to the beach and within walking distance from several shops (including tourist favourites like Barefoot Gallery and Ko Lanka). It is comfortably furnished with a functional kitchen, which makes it a very convenient accommodation for medium term or longer stays. Secure with one or more personnel at the gates at all times. The apartment elevator makes the stay very convenient for older people or people with mobility issues. Friendly staff and manager.

“Very basic - don't expect more”

Its a clean roof over your head, in a good location of Colombo - thats pretty much all. Pictures on their page of beach views from the penthouse are VERY misleading. There's many buildings in front of Palmyrah - so its not an uninterrupted beach view - its a very small view - so dont expect great shakes.
Yes the rooms are very clean, and clean bathrooms - 3 bedroom apartments, perfect for budget stay of a large group. GOOD location - close to Galle Road hotels and malls etc.

But some disappointments - We had pre-requested an airport pickup - which they forgot to send. When we arrived at midnight - there were no blankets for any rooms - we slept under the bed sheets. Not even a complimentary bottle of water or soap - you have to pick up EVERYTHING from a local store. NO Maintenance or housekeeping came for 3 days!! Even our bins weren't cleared, no toilet paper replaced - let alone giving fresh towels or soap the like! Housekeeping service was very disappointing.

“Super value and location”

We were a bit hesitant about this, usually booking hotels, but are very glad that we stayed at Palmyrah. It's a short walk to Sri Lanka's mall, Majestic City, which was handy. We were six friends who booked out one of the apartments, which was almost embarrassingly luxurious and definitely had all the western conveniences. We didn't arrive until after 10pm, but the owners living on another floor were all good with this and had no worries taking card for the payment when we arrived. Other friends of ours also stayed in the single-room accommodations on the roof level and those appeared really good as well, with a great view out to the Indian Ocean. All up, a real win.

“Central but quiet”

We enjoyed our stay at Palmirah Residences as we had lots of space, a nice sea view, a central place to start our exploration of Colombo with, a quiet small street and a very nice and helpful landlord. What else can you ask for in a new town where you just arrived with your family. Recommendable!
