“Fantastic place to stay, excellent value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We initially booked 4 nights, but extended our stay to 7 nights, as we really enjoyed the stay and this was a much higher quality place with everything we needed, provided. The apartment is light, airy and spacious. View from the balcony was fantastic, with all the facilities of Cinnamon Grand hotel at the door step, we didn't need to go anywhere else.

Our flight arrived in Colombo early in the morning, the owners very kindly allowed us to check in early, which was useful. We traveled overnight and needed to go to sleep straight away. You couldn't do that with a hotel booking.

The owners have been very helpful and easy to deal with through-out the booking, providing all the information we needed. Thank you so much for that.

Nice clean, comfortable apartment with all home comforts.

The lady who handled the check-in-out was very helpful, nice, and very reliable. Towards the end of our holiday, we stayed in another apartment in Crecat, next door (as we changed our travel plans and was too short notice to re-book this apartment), which made us even more appreciate the Emperor apartment.

We would highly recommend this apartment. It will be hard to find another fantastic place like this in Colombo, for the price and facilities available. We had a very stress free and relaxing stay in Colombo.

“Comfortable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We stayed in this apt when we came down to Colombo from Australia for our Daughters wedding, found the apt extremely comfortable and very well kept. Very tastefully decorated too. The owners let us check in the same night we arrived although our booking was from the next day. We found this extremely helpful as we settled in straight away. The care taker was kind enough to welcome us warmly very late in the night. All in all we had a lovely stay and hope we'll have a opportunity again to spend a few days there.

“Very pleasant stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

We stayed 5 nights. Our stay was very pleasant, in a very good location, the apartment was of a very good standard, well equipped, well furnished, with very nice views of the ocean and the Galle face green. The Cinnamon Grand Hotel and the Crescat boulevard shopping are right next door. The owners were very helpful, and accommodating. The downside was the lengthy inventory process, at 3 am in the morning after a very long journey. Also perhaps it would be useful to have some coffee/tea/sugar provided as complimentary for the first day. It would add a nice touch to guests after a long flight, arriving in the early hours of the morning. I would recommend this place to anyone.

“Large apartment with an excellent view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

My wife and I stayed at this apartment for nine (9) nights during November, 2013.
It is located right next to the Crescat Mall and the Cinnamon Grand (5-star) hotel. The location is excellent and there are plenty of restaurants near-by. Security is very good since staff at the reception ensure that only authorized visitors are allowed in.

The booking was made through Holiday Lettings. The Landlord/Landlady responded promptly and were easy to deal with. I paid through PayPal and received the refund of the damage deposit the same way within two days. The caretaker was on-site with the keys when we arrived and was very helpful. The landlord called from the U.K. after we checked in to ensure that everything was all right.

The apartment is well-appointed and matched the photos. My wife especially liked the colour combinations. It is quite spacious, clean, bright, and airy. There is a nice view of the Galle Face beach promenade from the balcony. The WiFi worked well and was good enough for Skype video. All the appliances including the air-conditioners worked and the combined washer/dryer was very useful. The crockery and cutlery included was sufficient for several guests.

We had a good time and would definitely stay here on our next visit to Colombo.

“Great apartment; Very helpful owners; Great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

My mum and I stayed here for a week, and found it to be a home from home. We had everything we needed. The apartment is light with great views. Everything is modern and easy to use. Within easy access of all amenities. The apartment is only a few doors from one of the presidents home so just be aware that you could be greeted by an army officer with a very big gun when you step out. It threw me a little but you get used to it. We were unable to use the pool on our trip, but other arrangements were made for us and we had no issues. I would definitely stay here again.

“Perfect location; extremely comfortable; responsive owner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We stayed a week and found the apartment perfect. It's on the tenth floor, looking over Galle Face Green, the Indian Ocean and Slave Island. The apartment had everything I needed.
Its modern, has good security, spacious, great WiFi, even cable tv.
Their is a good super market, with bottle shop two mins walk away, ATM, restaurants and a food hall if your feeling lazy. At the time the pool was closed, however the owner found a suitable solution with entry to the Spa next door, which had a pool ( this closure is only temporary). I mention this because I had booked a villa previously which had issues and the booking agent, Flipkey and the owner were totally unresponsive. The Emperor's owner and Holiday Lettings both were responsive and helpful.
Having stayed in Colombo many times previously, I thought this location and style of accommodation perfect.
