11. The airport is a 45min drive to central Colombo where Black Cat is. Taxis are available at the kiosk at the Arrivals hall and should cost approximately LKR 3000, including the highway toll.

Brilliant stay, the hosts were so helpful when we arrived really early in the morning. They gave us great advice on where to go. The room was beautiful, shower was excellent and hot. Really central location, can go by tuktuk to the beach easily. The food in the cafe downstairs is amazing, you pay extra for it, but worth the money!! All staff around the place were very friendly and helpful.

The location of Black Cat is perfectly situated, close to restaurants and shops and in a beautiful neighborhood. I appreciate the attention to detail in the furniture, crafts and art work. The cafe downstairs makes great food and coffee!
