We returned after an earlier visit in 2012. Overall good stay with same nice décor, good food and friendly domo. Downstairs room comfortable but noisy. Construction workers right next to window meant we couldn't open window for fresh air leaving the room musty. Single beat techno music in glass bar not really ideal.

Nice looking venue with great rooms and lots of character. Mosquitoes in room and booming bass from nearby nightclub led to a very poor nights' sleep however. This was a real shame as otherwise the hotel was very nice. "Butler" service was a nice touch.

I went there with five of my friends for drinks during Happy Hour and the bill turned out to be LKR 16,000+ which was ridiculous. We checked the bill and they had actually billed more (not taking the Happy Hour deal into account) and the actual amount we had to pay was only LKR 9000+. They might have thought that... More

No expense was spared when they renovated this old building. The suites are individually styled by someone with an amazing imagination. Probably the best hotel shower I have experienced and our suite (Scholfield) came with a laptop, printer, ipod and speakers and a tv with lots of channels including BBC world. The copper rolled top bathtub would be worth a... More

The glitzy website is impressive. The building is impressive. The butlers are..., you get the picture. The majority of guests stay for one or two nights, but we were there for a week. On a short stay, most guests will be 'wowed' by the charm and atmosphere, as indeed, we were. With more time to observe and experience, there are... More

How amazing Casa Colombo is! The building is stunning and the renovation have made this hotel a quirky, funky, stylish and sometimes kitsch retreat! I do love everything: with good luck (and maybe money) we are in the best suite: a huge place with copper bathtub, glass cubicles, cement stools, floating curtains and spectacular ceilings!!! I know it sounds bizarre... More

It was a great experience from the beginning onwards. Easy booking through booking.com. Got upgraded to the elfindale avenue suit room no. 12 which was marvelous. The staff were attentive and very friendly, the food was delicious and to chill in the pool area was very relaxing and comfortable. A extraordinary place to stay in Colombo hence the history of...

We were really disappointed by Casa Colombo: the website promises great things and the hotel simply doesn't deliver. It's tired and weather beaten outside and the pink pool isn't pink. The 'personal domos' are no different to maids/bellboys in other hotels (except that one of them couldn't stop staring at my boobs - I was wearing a high-necked top) and... More

Truly tucked away off the clamorous and clangorous Galle Road, this opulently restored Moorish mansion re-defines the boutique hotel experience. Our room, the Schofield Place Suite, was enormous and also enormously entertaining: It takes some exploring to master all the lighting schemes in the room and bath, but it brings a smile to your face. Never did figure out all... More

We stayed at Casa Colombo for one night before flying out to the Maldives. The hotel isn't located in a particular nice area of Colombo but it is fairly easy and cheap to get around by Tuk Tuk. The hotel is decorated in a very funky and modern manor. The room we stayed in was a very large suit and... More
