THE FLAT AT TORRINGTON
Breezy, tastefully designed and flanked with wide balconies, this one-of-a-kind apartment has the air of a secret boutique tree-house, nestled in the heart of authentic Sri Lankan life in a characterful 1950s building complex in the heart of Colombo.
With extensive wide balconies on both sides, the space is uncommonly breezy, leafy and natural especially given its super convenient central location.
The apartment is on the top floor of an old 1950s building. Please note that it is on the fourth floor and the old building has no elevator.
The space is furnished with a combination of antique furniture and custom made pieces designed specifically to suit the space. It has recently been lovingly renovated to maximise the spacious, airy layout that is rarely allowed for in modern apartment building design in Colombo. The apartment has been designed with every modern comfort – every room but the kitchen and bathrooms has AC. The master bathroom has a rain shower and his and her basins, and there is instant hot water throughout the apartment. In the large, living / dining room there is a 55” television with satellite TV as well as an extensive selection of pre-loaded movies and TV shows. There is a mini-library with a selection of books and a dedicated office space.
Free wifi, complimentary mineral water, quality tea and coffee (with espresso machine and French press), and complimentary toiletries are provided.
Quality linens and towels are provided and can be changed during longer stays upon request.
Ample hanging and drawer space for guests’ clothes is provided.
There are two bedrooms, with a king size bed in the master bedroom and a queen size bed in the second bedroom/office. If needed there is also a sofa-bed in the living room.
If you enjoy cooking, the kitchen is well stocked with a decent selection of necessary cooking tools, utensils etc. Also, feel free to cook with any of the dry goods you find in the pantry cupboard.

Otros aspectos destacables
Upon arrival, please check the consul table for detailed written useful tips about the apartment, our favourite nearby restaurants, food delivery options, taxi info etc.
We only ask that guests care for the place with respect and consideration as if it were their own. Smoking only on balconies please.
Check-in / check-out times can be pretty flexible if there isn't another booking immediately before / after yours.
AIR CONDITIONER USAGE AND ELECTRICITY BILLS
All utilities are included in the rental price. However, due to the careless Air Conditioner usage of some guests we have had to put an outer limit on the maximum amount of electricity used per night. The limit is set very high and should be more than enough for reasonable usage.
You shouldn't have to worry about this at all as long as you use the ACs respectfully as if you were in your own house (turn ACs off when not in use and keep doors to AC room closed etc.)
In the unlikely event that the usage during your stay is truly way more than necessary for your own comfort and way over normal residential usage, we will simply ask you to pay, at cost, for the extra usage only. (Boring technical / numerical details available on request).
Thanks for you understanding :)
