This hotel was a fantastic welcome to Sri Lanka and Colombo. We stayed at Casa Colombo for 2 nights, arriving at 7am after a long haul flight. The staff kindly organised for us to check-in early and our stay just got better and better. We were upgraded to a wonderful room with all the mod cons. From the music system to the huge bath to the divine soaps and toiletries, this was a gem of a hotel. The design element was fantastic but what made this hotel extra special was that they had thought of everything that you could need during a hotel stay and then packaged it up in a sleek and stylish way. It was fantastic to see the colonial architecture being brought into the 21st century in such a contemporary way.
Our domo was Dan. As previous reviews have already mentioned - he was professional, gave some very good recommendations all mixed in with a good sense of humour. Dan suggested we go to a restaurant called Nuga Gama to experience some Sri Lankan cuisine. This was a brilliant suggestion!! Even being vegetarian, we had at least 10 different tasty dishes to try and the food and "village atmosphere" were fantastic!
The breakfast in the hotel was also scrumptious and it was lovely sitting in the front courtyard in the mornings. Dinner was also very reasonably priced and we had a lovely meal. My husband particularly enjoyed trying the watallapun Sri Lankan dessert.
My only criticism is that the ground floor rooms need to be sound proofed. As they are off the communcal areas, the loud music playing in these areas can be heard from 7am to 11pm. I'm sure if would be relatively easy for this to be done....this would make the rooms perfect.
We have already recommended this hotel to our friends and I really hope that we can go back again to stay there one day.
