I arrived in Colombo early in the morning and went straight to ESH by taxi from the airport. The host Amaresh immediately made everything feel easy and straightforward, which was especially helpful for me as a woman travelling on my own. He also sorted out travel around the city if I wanted it and was easily contactable to answer any questions. The accommodation is very clean and comfortable and in a good area, next to the beach and close to some nice restaurants. It was also easy to jump in a tuk-tuk to get into more central parts of Colombo to explore. If you want a friendly, relaxed, quiet, well priced and hassle free place to stay, then I highly recommend ESH residence.
