Sri Lanka, Colombo – Royal Residencies

We booked this apartment at Royal Residencies for three nights via Airbnb. Our host had good communication and was able to let us stay a little longer than standard check out time as we had a late train to catch. Self check in and out was quick and easy with the building staff security team.

The large apartment, three bedroom apartment gets lots of natural light. Spacious living and dining room with comfortable furnishings, two ceiling fans and air conditioning unit and good sized balcony.

The two other bedrooms had double beds, wardrobes, ceiling fans and air conditioning units. Main bathroom had an open shower, toilet, bidet and sink. Linen was of good quality.Royal Residencies_Colombo_Sri Lanka_1Kitchen is large with a refrigerator, microwave, kettle and gas hobs. Good array of crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils. Royal Residencies_Colombo_Sri Lanka_2Wi-Fi was good, we didn’t use the TV. Washing machine available and a drying rack. Rooftop pool and green space was very clean and a nice area. Royal Residencies_Colombo_Sri Lanka_3Overall, it was a good rental but plenty of room for improvement – needs a really good deep clean, general maintenance to fix broken towel rails, cupboard doors/hinges, leaking shower head etc. Appliances such as refrigerator, washing machine and microwave are a little dated but still function.
