“Very Affordable, Very Classy”

Recently the two of us were in Colombo to attend a professional gathering in BMICH, and were directed to “Self catering tranquility “ by a mutual friend. We stayed there for 2 nights.

The location was perfect. It is situated In the center of posh Colombo 7, in a peaceful prime residential area. Finding the place takes a little effort, but if you have a navigator, or follow the directions given in the website, the problem doesn’t arise.

Ambience is excellent. Quiet and tranquil, just as the advertisement claims. There is a lot of green around. The owner is a retired academic with a friendly disposition, well read and informed, is extremely helpful if you want to know anything.

The flat has a large, air conditioned, comfy bedroom, with comfortable bed and laundered sheets, a lot of reading material ( definitely not my area !! ) There is a TV with satellite connection. The room has a large glass door / window which overlooks a small , green, home garden.

It also has a adjoining well-equipped pantry/kitchen if you fancy doing your own meal. All the tea and coffee items are provided including some snacks. We did not bother to do any of our meals as there are so many high end to reasonable, safe food outlets well within walking distance from the property. There is a fridge, Microwave, electric oven, washing machine and ironing stuff, so don’t need anything else. There is also free WIFI.

The wash area is designed comfortably, spaciously and tastefully, and all wall electric fittings are accessible at a lower level , making it wheel-chair friendly as well.

If you fancy a cycle ride, there are two bicycles provided, free of charge. The fantastic Racecourse arcade, Independence Square, Independence walking area, Viharamahadewi Park, and a must-see Independence Arcade are well within walking distance and will definitely give a foreign visitor, something to remember about my lovely Sri Lanka. ( after out function, we were able to visi these places as they were so closely situated –see my pictures ) Cab services are available, and you can get to any important site in the metropolis very soon and very safely.

So, as the name assured, we enjoyed a peaceful stay away from our home, away from our hectic working days.

We wish we could have stayed longer, to harness our cooking skills, and learn some Tai-chi, both
of which Dr.GK , the owner , happens to be an expert.

Fully worth for the prize you pay. Cheap , yet Classy. Five stars.

On the guest's suggestion the kitchen lighting and power supply to various appliances were improved.

The guest left behind his chess board for the use of other guests. I have now supplemented it with a Scrabble Board and two packs of playing cards.
