If you have landed in Colombo and need a cheap, clean place to stay for one night before traveling further, look no further. A bit of a slow check in process both times I have stayed but rooms are modern, clean and tidy. I had air conditioning, my own bathroom, and a private balcony with cracking views of the beach...

This is the second time we have stayed at this guest house (previously 3 years ago). They have updated their rooms which are clean and comfortable. Air conditioning, fan, lights and hot water all worked well. The mattresses are a dream which is not a given in SL. It was quiet and the service was good. Things that might prevent... More

Just 1 min walk to the beach side. Nice view from the roof. The owner is friendly and shared plenty of helpful information with travellers. Staff there are very nice as well. Some people said the public bathroom condition works not that well, but it worked perfectly to me honestly.

The reason we chose to stay in Negombo was that it was close to the beach and close to travel to the airport as if was just a one day trip for us. Run by a middle aged man and an old lady, this place is right in the centre of things. The beach is jus a street away. Lots... More

We stayed at the Marine Tourist guesthouse during our first night in Sri Lanka. It's off the bus towards Lewis Place, a local woman helped us getting out at the right bus stop. It's almost on the beach and it's very clean and nice inside. Would definitely recommend to go here on your first/last night.

Stayed in marine tourist guest house for two nights in August before my flight. Stayed in the dorm rooms here. Great stop off spot. Staff very helpful in showing me where to go to use a swimming pool closely, they even broke into my locker for me (at no cost!) when I lost my lock key! Highly recommend staying here.... More
