This is not central but ideal for Colombo as everything is fairly spread out in the city, tuk-tuk-able to Galle Face Green in the evening (but don't use the tuk tuks sitting outside waiting, walk a block). The room was very large with all the facilities you'd expect (the bath could have accommodated a rugby team!). It would have been... More

The courtyard hotel is located in the southerly part of central Colombo, the road outside is quite busy, with the usual hustle and bustle of Colombo but this noise doesn't seem to filter through. The hotel public areas are designed in an 'industrial chic' with metal art sculptures and various other recycled materials, it is very different from your average... More

Design, clean and modern hotel located close to Gallery Cafe and Barefoot shop. iMac and free movies available in the room (we had a suit). Very nice spa and beautiful swimming. Staff is extremely friendly and professional. It was a perfect place to rest and relax after a 22 hours flight. Don't need to take the breakfast there. Better to... More

We have just returned from a short 4-night stay in Sri Lanka, spending the first 2 nights at this urban, cool, unique boutique hotel. We arrived very early in the morning having had Colombo Courtyard send their car for us and we were prepared to perhaps drop our bags and kill time until our room was ready for check-in. However,...

I booked this hotel for 1 night before travelling across Sri Lanka. It wasn't much extra to book a suite so thinking we'd need a good nights sleeps after Overnight flights, I went ahead.

Great hotel, clean, wonderful pool, great service - it was a real retreat within Colombo - highly recommend. Ask for a room away from the road, and go to the gallery cafe for supper - almost opposite, and so delicious!

The entrance to the hotel and the façade can be a bit misleading at first glance! However from the first interaction with the staff it becomes apparent that this is a gem of a place located in the heart of the city. The suite was luxurious and the bathroom was spacious. The pillows in the room were so comfortable that... More

Went on our second trip to Sri Lanka last week. Needed a "do nothing" break. Spent 3 nights in Colombo at Colombo Courtyard (CC). Just one word to sum upbour experience - AWESOME !! When we arrived at the property, we were a bit apprehensive as the property doesn't really have a jazzy reception etc. - or even a courtyard!!... More

We booked a standard room, specifically requesting a quiet room - initially they gave us 201, I think it's the worst room in the hotel. Huge windows right next to the main road, noise was unbearable. We moved to a suite the next night, far better - if you can afford it I would recommend this. I think they use... More
