Would be the nicest room we've ever stayed in and along with the pool, bars and friendly staff was a delight to come back to after the reality of Colombo. Along with it's own restaurant, there are many others of good repute nearby. As for location, it was no effort to tuk tuk about to sights and shopping.

We just stayed here for two nights and we very very pleased with all this hotel has to offer. My wife and I were in colombo as a stop over for our honeymoon, I walked in to the reception hoping to get a room as our hotel was no good. From the moment I stepped foot in to this hotel I was greeted by friendly, happy staff. This continued through our stay. Every member of staff I met here were smiley, polite and always happy to talk to you. The design of this hotel is great, though you can here some of colombo in the back ground (which I quite liked) its hard to think you are in the middle of a busy city. It's like a lush oasis inside, with open air seating areas, a wine cellar, rooftop bar, swimming pool, jacuzzi and a fabulous restaurant and lounge bar, fronted with full length glass. I love how the glass keeps you in touch with the city your in but you can also hide away from it next to the pool. Pure class this place. I love it so much I'm coming back in a few weeks. Love the sculpture aswell!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 206, you can get a little noise from the bar, but not much.

The room, and the hotel more generally, was absolutely stunning – waterfall shower, gigantic bath, two TVs, apple computer, huge comfortable bed and all kinds of exciting condiments. Compared to what we got at other, more expensive hotels, Colombo Courtyard was an absolute bargain. Very highly recommended.

I was blown away by the luxurious rooms and elegant lobby space. My room had a separate alcove living room area, a Mac desktop for my personal use, and such a nice bath and shower. The staff was very kind and attentive. The decor is cool and unique, and the rooftop terrace is a great hang out spot (with an excellent cocktail menu). I spent an entire month on the island, and this was absolutely the nicest place I found. Definitely will go back!

We spent a night in this lovely hotel, every thing was very good, the staff is very friendly, we had a free upgrading, the room was very clean, a little bit smelly but tolerable.
I would prefer an extended breakfast timing till 11.
Anyway I recommend this hotel for sure and would return there surely.
