Putkov (GB) 25 November 2017 booking.com Review Rate 7

:) Excellent room The lady we met in the beginning was very helpful with a lovely nature. The room was spacious and comfortable. The main host couple tried to be helpful but became overbearing. :( The main host couple seem to have an obsessive disorder which makes them care more about their physical stuff than how their guests are feeling. Their behaviour effected our stay and we felt uncomfortable!

Ahmed, (US) 21 November 2017 booking.com Review Rate 10

:) It was value for money and felt as if home. The host was very nice and helpful. She even helped me to carry my bags down to the can when i was leaving. And though i booked only bed without breakfast, she gave us breakfast also with no additional cost. She just treated us as family like her sons.

Hello Tim. The room offered to you is the extended wing of Yoho Frangipani and we hope it was comfortable. Many thanks for your review!

Putkov, (GB) 25 November 2017 booking.com Review Rate 6

:) Excellent room but the behaviour of our hosts made our stay uncomfortable! The lady we met in the beginning tried to help as much as she could and seemed nice. The room was spacious. :( The main hosts tired to be helpful but became overbearing. The couple who hosted us have an obsessive disorder which makes their choice of work difficult for them. They both seem to care more about their stuff and things than the feelings of their guests. We both felt uncomfortable there.

has responded to this review

Hello Putkov. We are sorry that you were made to feel uncomfortable. We aim for all our property hosts to be accommodating and pleasant. We will engage with them to ensure this does not happen in the future. Many thanks for your review. We hope you visit Sri Lanka again and look forward to hosting you better for a delightful stay experience.

Rachel Guy, (AU) 10 December 2017 booking.com Review Rate 10

:) a '10' isnt enough! Harshi was the most wonderful host. She couldnt do enough to make sure we were looked after and well fed!! Unfortunately there was a train strike whilst we were there so Harshi took us down to the bus and made sure the bus driver told us where to switch buses etc. breakfast was delicious! Thank you Harshi for a wonderful stay

Harris Kersh, (GB) 17 January 2018 booking.com Review Rate 10

:) Amazing host and great place! Harshi the host is just amazing! She made us feel so welcome in her home and was so great to talk to and spend time with. Harshi treated us to 2 excellent homemade, traditional Sri Lankan dinners during our stay! The location is great, situated a max 5 min walk to the beach and close links to train and buses that take you into the heart of Colombo. We can't recommend this place any higher. It's clean and comfortable but it is Harshi who makes it extra special. She is worth the stay alone!

has responded to this review

Hello Harris. Thank you for your lovely feedback. Harsh is indeed one of our Champion Hosts and is popular with everyone who stays at her place. We are super glad you had a delightful stay. Cheers!

Khaalid Sampan, (GB) 13 January 2018 booking.com Review Rate 10

:) Best Host in Srilanka I have no words to express the amount of hospitality and kindness of the host Harshi over our stay. We were welcomed and treated not as guests but family. I would highly recommend anyone who is coming to Srilanka to book here without hesitation. She is such an amazing person who will look after you and you would feel that you just visited and old friend or family. We were offered free food and she didnt charge us a penny and even took us out to a dinner as a treat. I can only say that if you want to experience true srilankan hospitality, search no more.Just book !

Hello Khaalid. Thank you for your lovely review - At Yolo we are constantly working towards extending the best of Sri Lankan hospitality and Harshi definitely helps us on that end. We are mighty glad you had a delightful stay while in Sri Lanka!

duncw, (AU) 18 December 2017 booking.com Review Rate 10

:) Nice homestay, fantastic host This is a nice homestay with comfortable rooms that have quality bed linen. Harshi is a lovely host and even went to the trouble of arranging a delicious dinner and breakfast for us to make up for the mix up with our rooms. The homestay is less than 10 minutes walk from the railway station. :( We booked 2 rooms with ensuite bathrooms but due to some sort of mix up got one ensuite room and one with a shared bathroom. Could do with somewhere to hang things (e.g. wet towels) in the room

Josiane, (CN) 14 February 2018 booking.com Review Rate 10

:) Staying at Harshi's house is like staying with family. She welcomed me with a fresh orange juice as I arrived althought it was very late. She even showed us how to make rotis, packed a sandwich for our train ride and went for dinner with her. She was very attentive to all our needs and even beyond, like accompany us to the bus station. Thank you again Harshi and too bad we could not come back to Colombo in time to spend our last night in Sri Lanka at your house. I will definitely come back! :( A bit far from the center, but you can easily take a bus and the train to get to the center fast. The beach is also 5 minutes walk, which makes it even better!

Dorottya, (HU) 1 February 2018 booking.com Review Rate 10

Accommodation has everything you need, the host is unbelievably lovely, our best decision was to boo Harsi is an angel driven by unlimited energy, the mother of the neighborhood and the most welcoming host we’ve ever seen...and we travel a lot. She is such a caring woman, who you rarely meet, always ready to help and there is nothing she can’t help with :) She is wise and easy to communicate with as her English is great. This space here for the review would be short to list out everything she’s done for us and others during the couple of days we stayed here..,you have to experience for yourself. If you arrive to Colombo, especially if you need some directions, do not hesitate to book this place, you’ll make one of your best decisions during your trip. Reading back our own review sounds like a paid advertisement. Haha...but it’s not, it’s how it is :) Dorka and Levi

Loving homestay :) Lovely homestay with the lovely host, Harshi. She gave us all the helpful tips to get around the city and even offered to make a sandwich before we leave for the airport late in the night. Some confusion about the payment (we thought the payment was done online) made us low on cash in local currency and she generously offered us some money for free for the taxi! Fortunately we could exchange some currency from her last minute, and got to the airport on time. Thanks Harshi for being the mom away from home!

:) Очень уютно и чисто. Ощущаешь себя как дома. Хозяйка Harshi встречала нас у входа, так как уже стемнело. При заселении угостила вкусным фрешем и накормила домашним супчиком. Номера не большие, но очень чистые и уютные. Огромное спасибо Harshi за ее помощь. Мы забыли зарядное устройство при выселении и обнаружили это уже в другом городе. Списались с Harshi и она организовала передачу зарядки через её знакомого который ехал в нашу сторону. Осталось очень приятное ощущение домашнего уюта от ее отеля. :( Маленькие муравьи, но это бич шри ланки.

Angela, (DE) 15 March 2018 booking.com Review Rate 10

Best place we stayed in Sri Lanka! :) We stayed here for our first 3 nights in Sri Lanka and we are so glad we did! Harshi is an amazing host who will go out of her way to make sure you are comfortable in every way possible. She also has great local knowledge, gave us a lot of very valuable recommendations and helped us plan our trip. We checked in at night and she had dinner waiting on the table for us. Every day we woke up to a great breakfast spread that had been made keeping the guests in mind and their preferences - she treated us with fresh pancakes, eggs, sausages, papaya smoothies, a whole variation of Sri Lankan breakfast treats as well as super yummy fruits. It felt like we were visiting family. If you are on the fence about staying here don’t be! You will not only have a fantastic time here but also leave with a full stomach and a big smile on your face☺️

Bhagya, (LK) 18 March 2018 booking.com Review Rate 9

Overall it was worth for 2 nights. The room offered real value for the money. The host was plet :) The bed was comfy with the leopard print coverelet which was very snug and cozy to cuddle in. The room had almost the entire facilities listed on the site. A first for us.The bathroom was a nice touch. The minimalistic interior with the closed shower cubicle was exactly in line with our wishes. :( The breakfast was not the best. We've had better. The bread was barely toasted and the eggs a little bit undercooked.

Excellent stay :) The host is very attentive. Harshini went out of her way to make my stay as pleasant as possible, even washing my rental tuktuk before I returned it.

The room was tidy & comfortable, and my checkout time was very flexible as I had a late night flight. Would happily stay again.

:) Event though there’s been a confusion with Booking and her place was already full, Archi took us in and gave us room in her living room for free! We really felt at home there, having shared meals with other travelers, which allowed us to have great talks with new friends. It was our last two nights in Sri Lanka and I couldn’t think of a better way to end our trip! We had so much fun with Archi, cooking while singing and playing the piano... I will remember these times for a long time...!

Joyce Wang, (CN) 25 March 2018 booking.com Review Rate 10

The best home stay in Colombo :) I chose to stay here again in my last day here in Sri Lanka since I was here on my first day arrived on this holiday. The hospitality and wonderful room make to want to back again before I back to China. Again, the clean and warm room make you feel home already. And the host lady Harshi shows her wonderful kindness to me as it was my birthday so she secretly arranged a birthday party in her house with all other friends and guests, which I have never expected and surprised with moving tears. Feeling thankful I have chosen this hotel, and recommended to all of you, this could be the best experience ever.

Denis, (RU) 26 March 2018 booking.com Review Rate 9

Really feels-like-home place run by an amazing lady. :) 1. The lady, owning the place: - very positively tuned - has good knowledge of her country - is very generous serving breakfast. 2. It is a homestay, and it really feels like home. 3. The rooftop has a gorgeous view, lots of flowers in pots. 4. Very-very clean. 5. Room was generously equipped with towels, water and many more not very useful, but pleasant to have, things. :( Note: all these below are minor, but still, just to be more objective. 1. Leaking air-conditioning unit in the room, creating quite a 'lake' on the floor after some time. 2. Minor, but many repairments needed for sure: - bathroom shower door does not stay closed (put the ceramic thing to block it) - rooftop door needs a new fixing element - shuts too loud, if not held manually - electical adaptors do not hold plugs properly (common issue for Rs. 150 plastic) 3. Cold tone (white) energy saving bulbs DO depress even a cheerful person after some time. Warm tone (yellow/orange) energy saving bulbs are available on the market, cost the same. Just change. 4. Not everyone likes to talk as much as the owner, so be prepared.

Типо зашёл в гости :) В принципе ощущение что пришёл к кому то в гости. Хозяйка отлично встретила, угостила напитками Утром на шару накормила завтраком, при чем лучшим за время пребывания. Месторасположение как в городе, так и на районе очень специфическое. Нам удобно было уезжать по утру с Дехивалы, поэтому выбрали отель. А так там конечно делать нечего

Sanober Janvekar, (CZ) 16 April 2018 booking.com Review Rate 10

A home away from home :) Harshini is the best. We were made to feel so much at home that we felt we were adopted by her :) this was the best accomodation we had in all our trip in Sri lanka. No mosquitoes, no noise, wonderful food, best advice, great toiletries, superduper squeaky clean, hot shower with good pressure, comfy beds, walking distance to the train station and bus stop, shopping near by, if you come to visit Columbo, this is it, look no further. Thank you Harshini for arranging our transport , Dhanushka is an exceptionally good and careful driver. :( Everything was perfect

Feels like home, Great friendly place to stay :) Everything! Host was the most accommodating host we have encountered in our 3 months of travel. Very friendly atmosphere. Very clean & good facilities. Home cooked meal was delicious and was just what we needed after a full day of travel. Would stay again and again :( Nothing

Christopher, (US) 4 May 2018 booking.com Review Rate 9

Fantastic host and great value. :) Harshi was the most amazing and accommodating host. She did everything possible to make us feel welcome and at home. She was also willing to go out of her way to take care of anything that needed to be done--a quick load of laundry, currency exchange, storing an extra bag for a few days, meals at odd hours, helping late arrivals, etc.. Don't expect the Ritz-Carlton, but for travelers on a budget in a new country, we couldn't have asked for a better home-base.
