Position not very convenient for Colombo's main attractions and situated on dark side street. Staff did not speak English and would not take payment in cash - so cost us bank charges.
Hotel authentic. Bedroom, bathroom and breakfast all fine.

Dark room-no windows. All in all - not my cup of tea.
wifi was ok.

I was charged £96 on my cc before arriving for 1night stay at the hotel. The description is in-correct, their is no airport shuttle, minibar, microwave, robes. The hotel is down an un lighted street about 20minutes from the main attractions, we got several tuk tuks, not one knew where the hotel was. The owner has told me he has refunded my card as I was double charged, after 2 weeks this has still not happened, he no longer replies to emails. No apologies have been made for the false advertisement, the hotel manager also wasn't interested. The rooms service breakfast was cornflakes and set yoghurt.
Young staff was very pleasent

Umesh and house keeper are very nice people. Great breakfast.

Even though the property said it's close to many shops and restaurants, this is factually incorrect. I was also promised a tax invoice would be sent to me by the owner who has not done this. Was also ripped off by a tuk-tuk driver after this being arranged by the hotel staff and who told me that was a fair price. I later learned it was three times more than what I should have paid.

Not in the best location but easy enough once you know where you are to get around. Taxi drivers in asia dont know where they are going so make sure you print a map before you go
Lovely breakfast and friendly staff

The location is a bit out of the way for sight seeing. Not such an issue for our visit but you would end up spending a lot of time traveling in and out of the historical centre of town if you were there for several days.
We only had one day in Colombo and the manager gave us great advice about booking our forward train tickets, where to go locally for food and what were decent rates for tuk tuk hire etc. The room was nicely decorated and comfortable, suited us fine.
March 17, 2015
Location was less ok, but you can always take taxi or Tuktuk for a little penny.
Excellent hotel, room, staff. Homely hotel with fantastic staff. Very helpful. Will absolutely come back to this hotel.

We had organised with hotel owner to have a driver pick us up from airport but he didn't show up. This was a hassle at 2 o'clock in the morning. Complained to staff and were told that owner has 2 hotels so is sometimes distracted - that's just not good enough. Also, the hotel is a very long way from anything in Colombo.
The staff were great and breakfast was great. The location was quiet.

It's hard to find, and the road you travel to get there does not *at all* seem like it will take you to the beautiful, safe place you'll arrive at. Ignore your gut instinct to turn and flee; the place is fantastic, it's just on a shady-looking street.
Loved the sense of privacy and the quiet, and being a small building, they've really done amazing work with the decor; every inch is beautiful

The only drawback and a major one there is that there is no power back up. Though electricity supply is good in Colombo, but unfortunately, that day some lorry had knocked out a main feeder pillar. As a result, there was no power, which the Govt. had already notified them about. So, we were with out power, no electricity - no dryer, no shave and no air conditioner till 1:00 pm. This also affects, the water supply BTW.
The room and bathroom are big and clean. We were there for 2 nights and were comfortable. Adrian the manager is very helpful and a friendly person. The other staff, Umesh and the house keeper are also warm and hospitable.
March 8, 2015
Quite a distance from Colombo centre, although accessible by bus or tuk tuk.
A lovely peaceful oasis set away from the dusty city. Adrian, the manager was very friendly and helpful. Somehow we had booked half board for our stay, even though the hotel apparently does not provide evening meals! However Adrian resolved the problem with no fuss and had food brought in from Canes, their sister hotel 2 km away. Very comfortable bed (and pillows) in a spacious room which was clean and provided A/C, TV, WI FI, balcony and nice hot shower. Very substantial breakfast.

the wifi might be a little bit slow.
nice deco, especially a surprise on bed deco.

Don't bother staying here if you need help with things like organising a driver to travel out of town (or a map of the city). We spent a whole day and many phone calls before the manager organised one for us (at a ridiculously high price with a driver that doesn't speak English)...we would have been much happier if he'd just let us know where to go to organise it for ourselves. And don't bother trying to organise airport transport either, they said they could do it but then wouldn't answer any emails to plan for it to happen. It's much easier and cheaper to just get a taxi at the airport.
Really lovely hotel with very nice rooms.
March 1, 2015
No blanket for bed, dirty room, hard bed, no places to eat in the area
The staff was nice and friendly.

The reed boutique city hotel. çA me fait plaisir de donner mon impression sur cet hôtel, car j'allais justement faire une plainte à propos d'eux. Premièrement, je dois dire que les employés sont très gentils et serviables, y compris le mananger de Reed Boutique. Le problème vient de plus haut. J'ai payé pour une navette de l'aéroport à l'hôtel 35$ us et la navette n'est jamais venue me chercher. De l'aéroport, j'ai téléphoné à l'hôtel et ils m'ont dit qu'il y avait une erreur et que je devais prendre un Taxi que j'ai payé ±35$. Lorsque j'ai demandé au manager des managers de me rembourser, il m'a dit qu'il avait envoyé quelqu'un pour me prendre, mais que je n'étais pas là. Ce qui est complètement faux. J'ai fait quatre fois le tour des gens qui affichaient leur hôtel et il n'y avait rien de Reed Boutique Hotel. C.est pour cela que J'ai téléphoné et ils m'ont dit qu?il y avait une erreur, que je devais prendre un taxi par moi même.

Maybe hard stairs to go to thé room. But that´s all.
Good Quality for this lit tel guest HOUSE of 6 rooms. The staff was very kind and breakfast simple but very good.
January 25, 2015
The rooms weren't quite like the pictures I received no response to a couple of e-mails regarding an airport pick up The water tank above our room was extremely loud when showers were used therefore not the best quality sleep
The staff were fantastic and a delicious traditional Sri Lankan breakfast
January 15, 2015
Breakfast wasn't great, The rooms were not cleaned or made up daily.
The staff are helpful, friendly & kind...the manager was able to answer most questions, the hotel is a bus ride to the train station & Pettha market which is a easy walk to downtown.

Our first stop in Sri Lanka. Great and helpful staff. Nice and clean rooms. Answer for every questions. Good breakfast. Great price! Adrien and his crew as a hosts were perfect!
