An easy tuk-tuk ride from the station. Warm welcome with brilliant smiles and a plate of fresh fruit. Rooms spotlessly clean and a great respite from the rest of Colombo. The breakfast was seriously delicious (you won't need to eat for the rest of the day!) and John able to help with any travel arrangements.

We stayed here our first two nights in Sri Lanka and found the proprietor Jonathan and his wife wonderful sources of information, a retiree couple who opened their home in 2011. The homecooked breakfast was some of the best food we had in all of Sri Lanka. Rooms were very clean, hot water and AC. Ours had no windows which...

Dear Jesse G, Thanks for your review. Sorry if you felt the price was a bit high. As you may have noticed things are a lot more expensive in Colombo than elsewhere in the country. We are aware of the 3-4* hotel you mentioned and people who stayed there and then with us swear they would never stay there again....

Reviewed 16 August 2012 via mobile

The room was very big, had ac and tv. Thoug the house is central it is very quiet because its a bit away from the road in a inner yard. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Thank you very much for this great srilankian breakfast! It was wonderful! Only point wich could be improved: bathroom could be cleaner.

We were amazed and overawed. Within minutes of arriving we felt like we had known John and his wife for years, so comfortable is the feeling in Colombo Haven. Their welcome was genuine and caring.

On the basis of positive TripAdvisor reviews I booked one night at Colombo Haven and was not disappointed.

I landed in Colombo after midnight where a driver was there to greet me and...

Colombo Haven is a nicely decorated, comfortable, cool bed and breakfast in the middle of bustling Colombo minus the noise despite the central location. The owners, Jon and his wife, were extremely nice and were there to greet us with plenty of smiles, fresh juices and lychees even though we arrived at 1:00am. The rooms were spacious and clean, as...

Spent four nights here. The room was really neat, tidy and spacious and the bathroom was very clean. Colombo Haven is so conveniently located in the heart of the city that anything we wanted to do was within walking distance. We were well taken care of by Jonathan and the other members of the house.
