What a little gem, great location, comfortable and clean room and a fantastic Lankan breakfast. John and Shamylia made us feel so welcome and helped us plan our two week trip. They have also helped us plan our 2018 trip this time to the east coast and of course another stay at Colombo Haven. Highly recommended.

The best thing about this B&B was the lovely couple who were running it while we were there. They looked after us very well, especially when it came to organising a transfer to the airport in the middle of the night - they gave us good advice about when to leave, organised a car at a good price; and even...

We visited in March 2016 but were unable to submit a review. Help and advice from Mr Samson excellent. Couldn't do enough for us.Food very good. However, the hotel was outdated and poorly maintained. Cleanliness of the bathroom left a lot to be desired! The most expensive hotel we stayed in, in Sri Lanka, but certainly not the best. The...

This hotel is located right near the Galle Face and so very close to all sight seeing spots of Colombo. It is run by an elderly couple. Their hospitality would blow you off.

I went to Colombo to spend a few days to rest and relax amidst two crazy family weddings. Colombo Haven was the perfect place for this to happen. It had a relaxed homely feel thanks the welcoming nature of John and Sharmily and a cosy ambiance. I couldn't believe how central the place was and it's going to be increasingly...
