Amidst this frantic city and all its diversions, nestled behind a building on busy Galle Road is a quiet oasis and a piece of paradise. This quirky, self assured old home houses 12 suites, excellent service and a modern take wrapped in traditional form. Beautiful private pool, whisper quiet rooms, a bed large enough to ensure even the most restless... More

Such a disappointment. No-one to greet us and take our cases. Again this happened at breakfast, no-one around to take our order. The room was huge but smelled of drains and the carpet was wet under the a/c unit. The other a/c unit was faulty and could not be turned off. We asked to be moved, this was done immediately... More

This is a great idea - take an impressive colonial building and transform it into a boutique hotel with lots of interesting features - gone badly wrong. We stayed only two nights but experienced more than our fair share of problems. The bar and seating area at the front of the hotel look reasonable but the rear pool area is... More

We stayed here on the first night of our Sri Lankan adventure. Its a novel Hotel in the heart of everything, but its not a 5 Star hotel. While some of the staff tried really hard others were uninterested. The outside space was ok for a drink in the evening but the pool was clearly unusable, it was dirty and... More

This place is hilarious... Lots of quirky design features that must have been beautiful and clever ten years ago, but now come off as a collection of impractical cliches that don't age well and fall short in their execution- a good example of design at the expense of function. It is very evident that the designers knew little about the... More

Casa Colombo is a hotel with elegant architectural design. I've stayed two nights there. One on my wedding night and the next on my anniversary dates. Both the the nights were made memorable by the pure beauty of the place.It's a shame if I don't mention about Mr. Gayan who was excellent in his service.Thanks for the lovely time we... More

I was in Colombo for a wedding with my mother. Stayed 2 nights at Casa Colombo on 20/21 July. The hotel is so different than any hotel I have been to. The style is so unique and it is not a big hotel. You feel coziness in there. You will know all staff and they will know you. I personally... More

The design of the hotel is what you come here for and it is amazing. Service is extremely friendly and helpful. The bar is nice. Rooms are big and have all sorts of little extras (Ipods, computers etc.), beds are huge and very comfortable. Perfect for our overnight stay before heading back to Europe the next day.
