Host couldn’t have been more helpful especially since I arrived 2am. Took me for city guide walk to temple with elephants. Perfectly nice comfortable room . Delicious traditional sri lankan breakfast made by hosts mother with banana from garden . Would highly recommend
I stayed at Eranda place for two nights. Being resident of Colombo in the past I can say I knew the area and it’s exactly as described as well as the room. I had a great time at Eranda’s house. He and his mother did all their best to make my staying comfortable and really nice. Room is lovely, neat and clean, bathroom with hot water is pretty good, not to mention breakfast provided with coffe, tea, corn flakes, milk, jam and so on.
I truly recommend Eranda’s place, we won’t go wrong with this place!!
Thanks Eranda all my best to you, mum and “balla” (the lovely dog girl)
Eranda’s place is a fantastic find in Colombo’s busy neighbourhood – and offers a rare spot of tranquillity with a lovely outdoor garden and a spacious and super clean room. It is really easy to get local buses or trains to town and Eranda is a fountain of knowledge when it comes to all Colombo’s hidden treasures! His mother cooks amazing breakfasts and is happy to provide lunch or other meals also. The title Mini’s Residence refers to an impressive adjacent workshop space where Eranda’s prize vintage car lives…if you are lucky he may even show you the sights of the city in it! I have travelled to Colombo several times before but hope to come back here many times again!
We stayed 2 nights at Eranda’s place, and it was perfect ! The room is exactly as on the pictures : nice, comfortable and super clean. In this not-so-busy neighborhood of Colombo (but close to the center by tuktuk), the balcony and garden were definitely a plus ! Also, Eranda is a wonderful host and made everything to make us feel at home (including a drive in his Mini :). The traditional Sri lankan breakfast made by his mother was also delicious ! We would definitely recommend his place !
We stayed at Eranda’s for one night only but we would definitely choose to stay with him again if we were to visit Colombo in the future. He is a true host and ao much more! He took us around town with his red Mini and showed us a great time, including a visit to a great South-Indian restaurant we would never have found without him.
“very welcoming hosts, comfortable and functional room. cleanest bathroom we had for our entire holiday! perfect budget accommodation for colombo. nice sri lankan breakfast and friendly pet dog. ask the host to show you around in his pimped up car!”
“Eranda was a fantastic host. Not only did he make us feel welcomed, he also was very eager to help us with anything we needed. He was very friendly, helpful and a great host. We enjoyed our stay! We loved the neighborhood as well. The room was very comfortable and cozy, and is located at one of the nicest areas in colombo. We highly recommend this listing! Also, I should mention, we were provided with tasty breakfast each morning as well!”
“Eranda was an amazing host. He took us to see the sights in his great classic mini and then we chatted over beers in the garden which was really nice. Eranda’s very friendly, accommodating and you’ll be well looked after if you stay here.
The room is really lovely with a comfy bed, air-con and hot water, only a few minutes away from the nearest train station and opposite a delicious ice cream place. ”
I would highly recommend it.
