Right from the day I booked this apartment Gamini was very helpful sending details of events in and around Colombo, a map of the immediate area and directions to the apartment for the taxi dropping us from the airport. Our flight arrived early in the morning and we arrived at the apartment around 6am, Gamini was there to meet us...

How you feel about this apartment will depend on what is important to you and your tolerance for the noise of an extended family. Gamini, without any doubt, is the kindest, most helpful, and intelligent host one could ever hope for. He truly wants you to enjoy the apartment and Colombo and does everything he can to help it happen....

Management response:

Tranquility has several connotations. One is a state of mind realized by insight and it is not dependent on external factors. The other common understanding is that the environment generates tranquility. However, we will look into reducing sound level.

I stayed here with a friend for one month and I couldn't be happier with my stay. The location was great, we could walk to our place of work. The neighbourhood is very safe and tuk-tuks are easily available. There are many great places to eat around the area as well, such as The Bayleaf, Barnesbury and even japanese food...
