*Location and transportation
In terms of location you cannot ask for a better address! It is close to almost everything that is worthwhile doing in Colombo and a great base for traveling to other parts of the country as well.
Within our building there is a pharmacy, salon, clothes shop and small restaurant. There is a mini mart and cheap eating places right next door and the supermarket (Cargills Food City) and Durdans hospital are just 500 m from the apartment. The apartment is in close proximity to major international retail brands such as MANGO, Charles and Keith, Bennetton, Levi and local clothing retail stores such as Odel, House of Fashion (outlet store)Barefoot, Paradise Road etc. Trendy restaurants and shopping districts such as the Colombo Races Course, Gallery café, Chesa Swiss, Barefoot café are within minutes of the apartment. The Gangaramaya temple and Beira lake are just 4km away and the Dutch hospital shopping precinct just 5 km away.
You can get a tuk tuk or bus as soon as you step outside of the apartment as there are several tuk tuks parked outside the premises and bus stops a few yards away.

The location is very good even though they say colombo 3 you are right on edge of colombo 7. The description saying brand new units must be considered poetic licence. This unit is far from brand new. I would say 30 years plus old but has had a repaint. Having said that the rooms are very large and clean and bed very comfortable AC was excellent. It was vey nice to see some juice in the fridge and cereal and fruit on the table when we arrived late at night. I guess the only small disapointment was being hit with charges for electricity at $5 USD per day. I don't know if this is general practice in sri lanka not one i have experienced anywhere else. Would i stay again? Yes i would the owner and caretaker were very obliging unit was comfortable albeit NOT new and location is great.

We had a very nice stay at the apartment. It was clean and comfortable with snacks and drinks provided on arrival. The apartment is central and in a nice part of Colombo. Close to local shops and amenities.The staff were very helpful and friendly. Thanks to our host Manju for the Xmas cake and assistance with our transport to airport - much appreciated.

Wonderfully located in one of popular residential areas in Colombo, this apartment was spotless clean, well maintained and secure. We used this apartment as a hub for our 2 week stay in Sri Lanka, leaving big suitcases in the apartment and travel around with a backpack here and there. When at the apartment, we could walk to Barefoot, went to curry and rice at Green Cabin for lunch, then strolled to Paradise Road Cafe in the evening for coffee and cakes! All are in the neighborhood. The host, Manju and Roma made sure that we were comfortable during our stay. Our son, age 11, really enjoyed the stay as well.

Not cosy at all! (This is a good thing) Very spacious bedrooms, bigger than many hotel rooms in Colombo. Good showers and wifi which are two of the most important things really. Beds were comfortable and the air con and fans worked well too to keep the room cool. Manju is very easy to get in contact with through the app but doesn’t deal with the apartment in person.

A cute apartment in an excellent location. Close to shops and attractions. We were very comfortable and relaxed here.

The flat is adequately equipped with 2bed rooms but one room had musty smell and bathrooms were smelly. Good thing about the place was that every room has separate a/c with ceiling fan as well so easy to get cool down. However all of the ceiling fans were old and made quite a lot of noise.
