This hotel made me smile - it is very quirky and well worth trying. The original character of the hotel has been retained and embraced. Surprisingly quiet considering it is just of the main road into the city - city centre is roughly 20 minutes away.

Tucked behind the busy Galle Road is this boutique hotel. Someone with an eye for styling ten years ago must have invested quite a lot in opening this place as a hotel. Sadly, some of the decoration is not as it was when first opened and some refurbishment needs to take place. Also styles have changed and the expectations of... More

Last time I stayed at Casa Colombo, I was in Sri Lanka for work; this time we started our three week trip across the island here - in style. Cool design, each room is decorated differently, and one more interesting than the other. The restaurant is good - breakfast choices are excellent and the Sri Lankan and fusion dishes served...

The staff were excellent, our room was comfortable, and the restaurant was great - We had a meal after arriving at night, and breakfast each morning. The manager booked a very kind guide to take us sightseeing and shopping around Colombo, and to the Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage, stopping along the way to take in the sights and tastes of Sri...

We really enjoyed our short stay at the cool casa. Food was excellent and staff superb. The room was also very retro. The only reason I am giving this 4 stars and not 5 is: (1) the room was by the road which made it difficult to sleep in the morning (most rooms are off the road and quiet so... More

What a sad run down building filled with staff, who couldn't care less, The food is a joke, tasteless and uninventive, the service is just as bad. The swimming pool area is completely run down as are the rooms with out of date appliances and the smell of damp rising from the old carpets. Mosquito's are one of the Biggest... More

Casa helps to exemplify the exotic and culturally vibrant theme within which Sri Lanka is enveloped by. From the entrance journey to the hotel and the impeccable service and extravagant meals one can be sure to have an unforgettable experience, one which will be treasured for years to come. I will definitely be making Casa one of my homes away... More

It may have once been a trendy haven set in a colonial building but now it is faded , not terribly clean , staff disinterested algae round the pond and full ashtrays left for 24 hours The pool area...

Disappointed by the setting, the quality of the food and staff. The old mansion is tucked between buildings and covered with the tackiest decorations possible. The room had carpet and was noisy, state of cleanliness difficult to assess...

This is a great place and a nice oasis in middle of a busy city. It is a beautiful old colonial building and our room was incredibly spacious with a quirky design and very comfy bed. Staff were great and the spa is worth a look as they do great massages. Would definitely recommend.
