It's hard for me to review the room based solely on the accommodation. We had been in touch with the guesthouse and informed them that our hotel did not arrive until 11pm, we booked through booking.com where it states that it has a 24 check-in, one of the reasons we stayed here. The hotel was quick to say they could...

Its so cheap, but, I can say... I am sure that sleeping even in the street is better!!! old wasted durty beds... no privacy at all cause the windows are covered with a short curtain!!!! Even the bathroom has a big transparent glass. so, don't try to take a shower!!!

Stayed for 2 nights the rooms were clean and the area is very quiet at night time and the location is central to everything. Shaminda the owner was a great help to us and full of information ask for Nandasnea if looking for a good driver too. My only complaint would be the towels are very small could not get...

Nice quiet place in Colombo7. Near a park and the national museum. The place was clean and transport by way of tuktuk to everywhere we wanted to go. The staff were friendly and helpful. Good basic accommodation for in the city. Peaceful too. There were a couple of restaurants nearby and a cafe with real coffee.

From the moment we arrived, the live-in manager of Rosmid House was a delight. Just the right mix of kind and attentive, without bugging us at all. Huge thanks to him for making our stay so easy. The room was clean and well appointed, with a large bathroom and lovely architectural features (such as the wall of windows overlooking a...

We stayed here at the start and the end pf our trip, both times for 4 days, and we loved it! I think we had such a great time in Colombo because we always had this place to go back to. It's a groovy old house with just a few rooms. The room we had is a decent size with...

A few minutes walk from attractions such as the massive city park, and the museum is not too far either. The hotel is based in a residential area of the city (Colombo 07 - take note of the address as none of the tuk-tuk or taxi drivers knew how to find it easily). It's located down a cul-de-sac in an...

科伦坡市区中心难得的廉价住宿,房间有空调,也还算干净。店里的职员友好,也乐意提供帮助。床就一般般了,一转身就会响。 good place to stay in colombo, close to town hall and lots of sights and shops nearby. Friendly and helpful staffs, clean room but cranky beds.
