The location is perfect! Just a short and very inexpensive tuktuk ride from the Colombo Fort Station. The best part of this hotel is that it's a quiet retreat at the end of a long day of touring the busy Colombo streets. The owner was very friendly and inviting. She even allowed us to check-in early, which was much appreciated after a long airport layover and a very early arrival time. The room is clean and the balcony overlooks the owner's lush tropical garden. Very hard to believe that it is so close to the traffic congested streets of Colombo! There is a nice breeze coming from the large windows (no air conditioning in room but it isn't necessary due to the breeze). The owner serves a generous and nice breakfast for whatever time you need in the morning. Our only suggestion is to add the mosquito netting over the bed since we did get quite a few mosquito bites. Lovely place to stay in Colombo!
