First off, for the most part, there are only high-end and low-end hotels in Colombo, but with that said this is as close to the middle-of-the-road as you will find and at a very reasonable rate. It is more of a bed and breakfast but the management do go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable in all your requests. Their hospitality is certainly five star. I'm a solo traveler and my room was spacious enough, clean, and bed was sufficiently comfortable. They accommodate lager groups as well. Breakfast was good and they provide tours and taxi service as well. Anthony is very personable and his wife is also. By the end of my 5 day trip they were more like friends.
