ACA B&B
Ranked #26 of 153 Specialty Lodging in Colombo
Reviewed February 10, 2014

Safe and secure hotel at a prime location. Clean rooms and friendly staffs are the positives. This hotel is very well placed geographically with all amenities available within walking distance.
Being a regular guest for more than a year now and having stayed almost 100 days i have seen this hotel upgrading on all fronts. but these up gradation had come with a cost more than its worth.

Room Tip: rooms on first floors are best. Go for it as they are spacious.

Hi Pragash,

We thank you for your wonderful review.

As for the costs of the hotel, unfortunately, the cost of living in Sri Lanka is quite high and we somehow work towards having a reasonable rate for all the facilities we offer. Also, I can assure you that, for the standard of our rooms and the service we provide, you will never find a room for this rate in Colombo 3, which is why you keep coming back despite the raise!

We are happy to have you with us! :)

A cosy and quite hotel with courteous & cooperative staff. Clean & comfortable room. There's always a ground for improvemet. ACA will certainly keep on upgrading the facilities and services. During our weeklong visit, My Wife & me felt like staying in our own home in Kathmandu, not in a hotel in Colombo!

We really enjoyed our stay at the Alfred Court. It is a simple, basic hotel but clean and neat and, most importantly, very friendly staff. When we arrived, they didn't have rooms with double beds anymore, so we got upgraded to a deluxe room for the first night - until a standard room with double bed became available. We liked that swift and positive customer orientation!

Like most hotels in Colombo, this one was too expensive for what it was. However, it was cozy, clean though a bit humid, the bathroom was functional and had hot water, and the staff was very friendly and helpful, and the location was within walking distance (or a bus ride) to Fort and the main sights. At 75USD per night for a double room, you may want to add a few dollars and stay in a fancy hotel. Otherwise, this is a good address.

Dear Guest,

We are glad you had a nice stay at ACA. We are sorry to hear that you found our Deluxe Rooms expensive. For a hotel of our calibre, we assure you that you would definitely not find a room at USD 75 in Colombo - 3. The standard and class of our Deluxe Rooms are equal to 4/5 star hotels in Sri Lanka based on customer reviews. Our aim is to provide the comfort of a 5 star room at a reasonable rate. We also have Superior class rooms which are priced lower for those who are looking for a cheaper option. Colombo is usually humid and that is beyond our control, which is why all our rooms are air-conditioned and also equipped with a ceiling fan.

Our staff are always looking to satisfy our customers and I will pass on your comments to them. It was a pleasure having you with us. At the bottom line, we are glad our Deluxe Rooms made you want to choose ACA despite your budget. We would love to have you back! :)

Alfred Court Accomodation has exceeded my expectation.
It is in Colombo 3 and I has 9 rooms span over 3 storeys which is I like to stay when I am overseas.
Food City (supermarket) is just 50m away, A Chinese restaurant just besides it. The hotel staff are helpful and they will ensure that they get a tuk tuk for you insisting you that they switched on their meters.
I was happy during my stay there as I chatted with the staff and they also complimented about me for keeping them occupied with conservations of sharing our cultures. ( I am from Singapore)
Breakfast was served every day. I stayed in a room facing the back yard (another businessman house ) but I do not like it. Secondly there were some bugs on the bed after I did not get on my body the next day. After which I changed room and GREAT; I can see the busy road of people going in and out from the hospital opposite my room.
I did not rate it full star as it lacked the pool..
Please find the photos of me , staff and the hotel.

Hi Peter-Chua,

Thank you for your wonderful review and photographs! We are happy that we were able to accommodate you and satisfy your requirements. Our staff are always looking to satisfy our customers and they also happened to find a special friend in you. They kept telling me what a nice gentleman you are and I was happy to have finally met you before you left. They definitely loved having you around and surely miss you! Not all customers are as friendly and love spending most of their free time with our staff, to which you were an exception.

I am sorry to hear about the bugs. We got the Pest-Control to check and we were told that those were not bed bugs, but some other type that isn't too harmful. Regardless we have taken the necessary action to make sure no bugs and insects etc. are in the room and around the hotel.

We doubt we can accommodate a swimming pool, but lets see.. Maybe in the future.. ;)

Thank you for choosing ACA. We absolutely loved having you with us!! Hopefully we will see you again, sooner than later! :)
