      The hotel is tucked away in a little alley across from Barefoot Cafe. The room is spotless, cozy, and filled with free coffee and cookies. Imran was very friendly and was able to arrange transportation to the airport.

      This hotel is in an office building on Galle Road, a few hundred meters from the sea. The rooms are nice, aircon and ceiling fans are strong, hot shower, good breakfast. Plenty of restaurants in walking distance. Easy to get Uber or auto rickshaw out front. Will definitely stay again. Thanks to Imran and the staff for a great stay.

      Last minute booking

      Last minute bookinget just to spend the night. Front desk was very welcoming and gave us the choice of rooms available. My daughter, who has been backpacking for 5 months, found the beds to be the most comfortable ones. We left very early the next morning and they went out to the avenue to get a tuk tuk for us. Would surely go back to this hotel if I'm back in Colombo

    • 6.0.Good

      Easy access, but a little noisy.

      This hotel is not exactly what we had expected when we booked it. The hotel only occupies one floor of a building. So, I would say that this feels more like a guest house than a hotel. The room was very small. You can barely walk around the bed without hitting the bed frame. Bathroom was quite big compared to the whole room size. Bathroom amenities were provided. Great hot shower with pressure. The problem was probably all the noises! We entered our room and we heard noises in the bathroom. Someone in the next room was taking shower, but it sounded just like someone was in our room. The noises from the street were also very annoying. Our room is also just right at the common room area, so if somebody was talking there, we heard everything. We paid for breakfast, but did not get breakfast, because it was too early (we had to leave at 6.15am to catch the train)

      Convenient hotel, good service

      Good hotel, spacious room, good location, nice service, nice breakfast the only problem we had with the room is the noise isolation. The street below is a major traffic artery of the city and we can hear the cars and busses pretty well.
