Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Basic, comfortable rooms, good value for money for short stays. However when we went there was renovation going on (due to which there was a lingering smell of paint) and the upkeep of common areas can definitely improve. Room was clean though basics like tissue paper and water could have been better stocked up. Central location which is excellent for sight seeing in Colombo.

Hidden gem middle of busy Colombo. This hotel located in a very busy area, but when you to the property you feel like you are in a village. I got a room with a jacuzzi and it was a great experience. Specially have to mention about the friendly staff, they bring the special touch to this place. Highly recommend this place to

Stayed in a spacious and comfortable room. My stay was not without its hiccups. I called twice just a couple of days prior to arrival to confirm the category of room that had a jacuzzi only to find upon checking in that that room was not available at all due to repairs. The inability to communicate something that simple was bizarre. The villa is lovely, spacious and airy. The pool was being cleaned but was ok to swim in.

Horrible stay!!!!
Room we stayed in was dirty, towels were stained. The bathroom was rusty, had moulds growing and just didn't do it for us at all. Aircon at night was making a rattling sound. Not recommended at all as there are so many options available in Colombo

My son and I had a relaxing but fun educational trip to Sri Lanka. This boutique hotel was near the museum which we visited and spent the whole day in. We swam in the hotel pool the rest of the time.
The staff was warm, friendly and very accommodating.

Pros: The villa is located very central and it looks very cozy. The room he had was very big and clean. There was a flat screen tv, AC and a small fridge. The bathroom was clean and we had hot water all the time. There was a pool but we didn't have the chance to try it. We enjoyed the traditional Sri Lankan breakfast.

Cons: The staff was quite slow at serving breakfast.

I traveled to Colombo last week and my stay at this property was quite nice. The location is amazing and the property is well managed. Clean and caretaker kumara is a great guy.

The breakfast was nice and fresh.. The weather wasn't great during my travel otherwise I would have tried their tiny pool too.

We spent 2 nights there. Our room was very spacious. The staff was very friendly. It is a pleasant place in a calm area of Colombo. Choice of continental or Sri Lanka breakfast. You need to order it the night before. You eat outside next to this beautiful tree.

This place was fascinating. From it's large wooden.door entryway, to the humongous Bayan tree in it's courtyard. It's like a slice of retro-fitted Paris crossed paths with colonial Dutch-ruled Colombo. But it had lots of modern amenities too. It is nestled out of the way on a side street. The staff were extremely professional and kind. Friendly, warm and careful with their words and interactions with guest. The breakfast was delicious, and they asked me how I would like my eggs (unusual attention to detail at this price-point of around 50 USD per night)!! It was a real jewel in my travels. I will definitely stay again. The room was very large, the bed was comfortable. And, something you rarely see at this price point in Asia, they had washcloths as a part of the toiletry kit. I didn't use the pool, but it was clean and very large.
