I am a bit biased as I have been to this hotel twice before, but to me you couldn't ask for more from a hotel. The staff have to be the most friendly I have ever come across, and in Kumara they have someone who couldn't be more helpful and must be an ever present - I do wonder when... More

We were on our honeymoon and were given a free upgrade. The suite was amazing and we had our own personal butler. The room had a huge bath and shower. It also had a laptop, iPod dock, 4 phones and speakers. The staff were very attentive and the food was very reasonably priced and delicious. I would thoroughly recommend this... More

So Casa Colombo is rated #2 for accommodation in the Sti Lankan capital. For the life of me I can't work out what would beat it. This ticks every box. Small (12 rooms), fabulous friendly service, great food, wonderful rooms bordering on the quirky. Kumara, the concierge/manager/all things to all people should be bottled and dispensed to hotels world wide... More

Very cool hotel - I wish I spent more time here! The vibe is fun and it's an amazing old building with great photos of its transformation. Very friendly and helpful staff, too. Travelled with a friend, so we booked separate rooms as we didn't see 2 beds as an option, but they said they could have made arrangements if... More

We stayed at Casa Columbo on our last two nights of a honeymoon tour of Sri Lanka. The hotel is situated just off a main road and is very grand. There are lots of quirky and modern features. We were checked in quickly and shown to our room by our personal butler. The room was enormous and decorated in a... More

Stayed here on the first night of our honeymoon, fresh off the flight from the UK. Very welcoming, and we really liked the rooms and decor. Our first meal of our honeymoon was here and one of the best of the trip, and one of the best curries we've ever had. The pool area was really cool, and not crowded.... More

The Casa Colombo is something else. We came here for our last night in Sri Lanka, and wish we could've stayed longer. They've beautifully restored a 200+ year old mansion, and have nailed just the right mix of modern vs vintage vs quirky. We absolutely loved it- from the brass claw-foot bath to the pink pool to the kitsch "red... More

definitely stay here if you're looking for a funky place in an old house but want the privacy feel of a large hotel. room decor and toiletries are great, staff is super nice and the spa is great if just off the plane. the bar and restaurant are good too. location is not in walking distance from much - it's...

This was where we just started our wondereful sri lankan round trip. Beautiful room in an "thousand and one night" atmosphere. It was built over two centuries ago. Very good service and good food as well. My wife and I we never forget this magical place.
