Like previous reviews stated; appartment is as described. Location is 10 minutes walk from the 'center' but some great places nearby to eat. Mini market downstairs is very convenient. Beach and a nice place to eat (Colombo) is just across the street.
Apartment is very practical and has all the necessities. There are 2 bedrooms and 2 small bathrooms with shower, sink and toilet. Living/dining area is large, which was great with 2 small kids. Balcony is very decently sized as well with sun in the morning. The living area was also quite cool, even without aircon. Bedrooms could become quite hot (in January), but only with windows and doors closed. Simple mesh screens on the windows would be a good addition to keep mosquitoes out and get cool air in.
Could use a little TLC in some area's, including the electric boiler which kept overflowing. Don't expect too much of the free wifi at bars, it is generally very slow if it works at all.
Would happily recommend this apartment!
