Colombo apartment

2 bedrooms / 2 bathrooms / sleeps 4

“A great twenty seven night holiday” This apartment is in a very central and convenient location. We were welcomed on arrival by the owner's son who conducted a very smooth introduction to the apartment and left us with the assurance that he was just a phone call away. The apartment is very comfortable. The sitting room with dining area and enormous Master bedroom with large attached bath/shower room has plenty of day light. The smaller second bedroom/shower room is just as comfortable. The apartment and furniture was clean throughout - we were impressed by the spotlessly clean interiors of all the cupboards on the premises. The kitchen has all the necessary appliances but cooking was not an option as the numerous food outlets at the underground Crescat shopping mall and within walking distance serves the apartment well. The underground supermarket/pharmacy is very convenient. The swimming pool was being refurbished so we did not see it, however, the Management office arranged for us to use the Cinnamon Grand hotel pool for a small one-off payment. Security for the apartment is very good - we felt very secure during our stay. Electricity is charged by meter readings on arrival/ departure which we found very reasonable as we used the aC, laundered regularly and ironed on a daily basis. The very accommodating owners installed a landline with incoming calls and at our request provided 2 garden chairs for the balcony. We cite these as examples that they did everything in their power to ensure we were happy and content during our stay. We were pleased to meet the owners who arrived in Sri Lanka towards the end of our stay and they were on hand to check us out at a time convenient to us. A delightful family who made our stay memorable and doing business with them was a pleasurable experience. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this apartment and look forward to returning in 2014.

“Excellent place to stay in colombo” We stayed in this apartment at the beginning and end of our trip to Sri Lanka and it worked out brilliantly. Booking was really easy as the owner was very helpful and easy to deal with. The apartment itself has got everything you need and is of a really high standard. The roof top pool was the real highlight for our family. Most of the time we had the pool to ourselves and the views over the city are fabulous, especially when it is all lit up at night. The location of the apartment is also very good as it is very central for sightseeing. I would highly recommend this apartment. Great facilities and for us much better and cheaper than a hotel.

“Modern, Comfortable and Clean apartment in Safe Building/Area” I'm an american graduate student and I stayed in this apartment for two months while interning with the UN. This was overall a very good rental experience. The apartment is modern, clean and comfortable with a very nice, Western-style kitchen and a washing machine. It is beautifully decorated. I felt very safe as a woman living alone and coming and going to the apartment even at night - its located in a safe and quiet area and the security staff who are on duty 24-7 are very professional (unlike the place I lived before this rental where the security guards would try to flirt with me or ask for money). The two full bathrooms were very clean and modern with hot water. The main living area has aC and only one of the two bedrooms has aC, so that may be an issue if you need two aC bedrooms (which I didn't). The landlord was very responsive and provided a cleaning service every two weeks or so and provided clean bed linen. The only problem I had with the apartment is that there was no internet. The landlord did provide a dongle, which I appreciated, but it was not very adequate if you do a lot of Skyping or streaming videos online. That's the only reason I'm giving the apartment four stars instead of five, since I use the internet a lot and that issue could be a bit frustrating. The rental price, though more than I was expecting for Colombo, seems to be in line with similar rentals in the area (and less expensive than similar apartments in Colombo 3). The building is pretty quiet and peaceful. I enjoyed living here overall and would recommend it to others.

“A peaceful and convenient place to all amenities. Enjoyed our st” The service we received was very mediocre. We had to request for various things, e.g. water, linen and towels. Security was very helpful. The apartment is a spacious, quiet and peaceful place. The en-suites in each room was a great feature, there was enough room to entertain family and relations. The location is the most convenient, which is close to the Supermarket,Restaurants and Pastry Shops to suit once palate; and public transport to anywhere in Colombo from this location is great. Having a public & private hospital in the area was also convenient. What we liked best was the location and convenience of the apartment. Without any hesitation we would recommend Uniwick apartments to anyone looking for accommodation. We have already mentioned to our friends who intend travelling to Sri Lanka in the near future.

About Colombo

Welcome to Colombo, the capital city of Sri Lanka. This historic city on the western edge of the island became a busy port thanks to its location on the trade routes between East and West. 

In recent years, many travelers saw Colombo as a means to an end – somewhere you had to pass through to access the island’s more idyllic delights. But today, it’s a thriving destination in its own right, exploding with things to see and do – a buzzing Asian metropolis with stunning coastal and rural scenery not too far away.

From bungalows in the quieter suburbs to penthouse apartments in the heart of the action, a FlipKey rental is a great way to experience this vibrant and exciting destination.

History

For centuries, the teardrop-shaped island of Sri Lanka off India’s southern tip was a strategic stronghold. It was ruled successively by the Portuguese, Dutch and British, and its architectural patchwork reflects this changing cultural heritage. The city’s skyline today is a fascinating jumble of highrise apartment buildings standing alongside ancient temples, mosques and churches.

Things to see and do

There are landmarks and sights aplenty to admire in Colombo. The perfect place to start is the Colombo National Museum, where extensive collections showcase the city’s history. National treasures including the crown jewels and throne of the Kandyan kings are housed here. The museum is located next to Viharamahadevi Park--with its glinting golden Buddha statue, a stroll around the gardens and water features make for a peaceful afternoon.

Other must-sees in the heart of the city include the decorative red and white Jami Ul-Alfar Mosque and the incredibly detailed Sri Kailawasanathan Swami Devasthanam Kovil temple.

Next on your list should undoubtedly be the striking white dome of the Kelaniya Raja Maha Vihara. This Buddhist temple is a tuk-tuk ride out of the city centre and offers dramatic architecture and even more fascinating history. 

An escape from the city

If you’re ready for a break from the hectic city streets, then be sure to visit the Talangama wetland reserve. Described as an “urban oasis”, 100 species of birds have made this complex of ponds and wetlands home, along with beautiful butterflies and dragonflies. Another beautiful escape from the hustle of the capital is Mount Lavinia Beach. Located just a few miles up the coast, take a sedate train ride for the best views on the journey. 

Book a lodge rental on the beach and you’ll be right next to Sri Lanka’s famously stunning shores, but not too far away from vibrant Colombo, either. The perfect balance.

Getting around

Sri Lanka’s roads are congested and getting around can be time-consuming. For that reason, when in Colombo the best approach is to walk if you possibly can! For short journeys across the city, a tuk-tuk ride is the standard (and in some cases exhilarating!) option. 

For journeys further afield, buses are generally to be avoided due to the state of the roads. Trains offer a more gentle experience, but be prepared for longer journey times. If you’re planning to explore the whole island, hiring a car and driver can be relatively affordable.

But one thing’s for sure – however you choose to explore Colombo, you’ll be bowled over by Sri Lanka’s beauty.

Luxury 2 bedroom apt in Colombo 3, Sri Lanka.
Just check in and smile.

As a repeat renter of this apartment, the metaphor 'two thumbs up!' just about sums up what I have to say about this rental experience. A perfect blend of location, comfort and price makes this, one of the smarter rental choices for people who want to focus on their vacation. The willingness of the owners to work around airline schedules is also a plus. As someone who travels yearly to the resplendent isle, I see no reason to look for alternatives. I have and will continue to recommend this apartment to friends and family.see more
Onthree20 Plus. 2 Room ( 3 Beds) Apartment
Excellent apartment within the City

This three bed room apartment is extremely clean and spacious with great views of the Colombo city from all rooms and the living area. It was nice to have air conditioning in each of the rooms, including the living room. The apartment is equipped with Wi-Fi internet, a television with cable TV, Oven, Microwave, Toaster, plates and utensils as well. It was wonderful to stay in an apartment instead of a hotel room when travelling with family, as the dining and living room provided a place to gather and chat. Since the apartment complex is located at almost at the end of the airport expressway, we were able to reach the airport in less than 30 minutes. The owners were professional and provided excellent service. I will certainly be recommending this apartment to visitors coming to Colombo and look for place to stay at a reasonable price.see more
Hedges Court Plus. 2 Room ( 3 Beds) Apartment beyond Ward Place
Very good

We stayed in Colombo for a about month, working at the National hospital, wich is around the corner of the flat. The flat is big enough for a family of 4, and the location is in a safe area with good shopping possibilities around (supermarkets, small shops, pharmacy, cloth- cleaning, Odel (shopping mal)...). Everything in the flat and in the house is absolute clean and the cleaning service with fresh towels and bed- clothes every week was exceptional good. Our boys enjoyed the small gym and the relative big pool (also very clean) on the roof. When staying in Colombo for some days or weeks and not staying in a hotel, this flat is the alternativesee more
2+ Bedroom Condo, Exclusive, Havelock Town
clean, safe, comfortable, well-located and well-appointed

My family and I (2 adults and one baby) stayed here during the summer of 2013 and we were very pleased. It is nicely furnished and a comfortable and safe place to stay. We didn't have any problems while we were staying here, and if we did, they were prompted attended to either by the owner or by management. The price is comparable to rents being charged for similar places in Havelock Town and elsewhere in Colombo. One thing to keep in mind--and this is no fault of the owner--is that electricity in Sri Lanka is extremely expensive and it is very costly to run a/C. With that being said, we would have preferred to have had a/C in the second bedroom (there is a/C in the main living area and the master bedroom), as it could get rather hot in there and it was difficult to sleep. This is not a deal-breaker, however. My only complaint about this lovely apartment is the lack of internet. The owner advertises it as having internet but the internet access provided is a "dongle" and the speed and bandwidth are capped each month. If you exceed the limit, your speed is slowed considerably. If you only want to send emails, this is more than sufficient. But if you want to make calls to family internationally or are a heavy internet user for your work, this internet will not be sufficient for you. Overall, this is a great place and the landlord is a pleasure to work with. You will not be disappointed staying here.see more

Conveniently Situated apartment

Our stay in the 3 b/r apartment although short (7 days) was a very comfortable one for the whole family. The apartment was very convenient to all amenities and the customer service provided by its owners and especially by the caretaker, Shiromi, was of very high standard. There were a few minor issues which were pointed out. We are certain these issues will be remedied in due course. Would recommend to any family seeking to spend their holidays in Colombo, Sri Lanka.
