Comfortable start to out Sri Lankan adventure
It was only a short stay as we arrived late at night and left the next day at checkout. Sudharshan was very responsive in organising transport for us both before our stay and while we were there. The room was nice, clean and they provided slippers and robes. Location was good. Walking distance to Black Cat Cafe and Cinnamon Gardens. Good value. Would stay here again.

Fantastic, the hotel manager was ready for us when we arrived at 2am. Room was fabulous. The manager was very helpful with information regardin places to see in Colombo. Only stayed 2 nights but would recommend. Pool is small but really cool after a hot day.

Helpful staff
I only stayed at Ellen's for a few hours. I did manage to get some sleep and enjoy a cup of tea. The hosts were great as they let me in at 4am and were up to order me a taxi at 6am.
