We stayed for only a night at this fabulous boutique hotel and wisher we had stayed there longer.
Excellent personal check in service followed by a quick tour of the hotel.
Our room was fantastic and had doors that opened to give us access to the pool.
A wonderful bathtub and wonderful gadgets in the enormous room which has an enormous bed as well as lounge TV music system.
The staff could not be more helpful.
The food was excellent and we can recommend the lobster which was about £13.
The drinks are very very affordable at around £1 each for a beer and £3 a beer.
Next time we are in Colombo we know where we will be staying.
Thanks to all at the hotel.

Room Tip: On the ground floor you can have a room with pool access.

Stayed at the Casa Colombo for one night as the previous hotel I was staying in was fully booked. As the taxi turned off the main road into a small alley my first thought was - where am I staying tonight? The answer - a stunning boutique hotel, which is completely the opposite end of the spectrum to the chain hotels I usually stay at on business trips.

I arrived 3 hours before the scheduled check in time, and am usually greeted with the response 'you room is not ready, please come back later', but this time 5 minutes after arriving I was told 'Sir, your room is ready'. I was shown to the room by my personal butler for the stay (who even wrote down their mobile number just in case they were 'off duty' when I needed them), which turned out to be a free upgrade to the Royal Suite, complete with bath tub in the bedroom (there is also a bathroom with enormous shower), walk-in wardrobe and even a MacBook!

Everything in this hotel has been designed to be 'quirky and cool'. Will definitely stay here again next time I am in Colombo and would recommend this hotel to anyone who fancies staying somewhere 'different' from the norm. Easily the best boutique hotel I've stayed at in Asia by a country mile.

Room Tip: Royal Suite is fantastic! Personal jacuzzi on the private balcony, huge 'living room' and enormous bed!

Casa Colombo is difficult to describe, but one might say this hotel possesses an eclectic mix of tradition, beauty, and modern innovation in a single package. Getting there is a bit tricky as I've found many local drivers struggle to figure out where to turn off on the one-way Galle Road. Upon arrival, I was warmly greeted and served a drink as I waited to be checked into my Traveler Suite. The building appears rather old and rickety and didn't have a lift so I had to walk up a long flight of stairs, but its not a major issue.

The room was big and beautiful, with many artistic touches as befits a top-class boutique hotel, but retaining a homely feel. It came equipped with an iPod dock and flat screen Tvs which felt a bit out of place but were definitely welcome. The general airiness and openness of the room gave rise to concerns about bugs but I never had any problems. The bed was excellent - very comfortable. I was definitely happy with the room.

The hotel has some other interesting touches such as a pink swimming pool, though if I recall correctly it only really looks pink at night when the lamps are on. Breakfast was amazing - Way beyond expectations and as a food lover I was giddy with the chance at sampling authentic Sri Lankan cuisine. It wasn't a buffet but you get served so much rich food that you'll definitely not be able to finish it.

This is definitely a refreshing hotel experience and a great place to call home during your visit there. It's not a cheap hotel by any stretch of the imagination but well worth it for the experience. Five stars for Casa Colombo.

Thank you for a most wonderful five-star review of your stay at CASA Colombo. We love it that you enjoyed yourself and liked what we had to offer you.

The CASA Colombo building is in fact a 200 year old mansion, which was lovingly restored to what it is now by our Founder and CEO Mr. Lalin Jinasena, and although designed to be hip and trendy, he has retained the grandeur of the mansion so that you can see how the people of years gone by have lived. You may be interested to know that the entire design of CASA Colombo, including its furniture are all original design ideas of Mr. Jinasena, which you will not find anywhere else in the world.

Please do come back very soon and visit us again at CASA Colombo.

Sunny regards,
Horst

This was the last stop of our tour of Sri Lanka, and we felt like we'd saved the best 'til last! We stayed for three nights.

We were greeted on arrival by our "Domo" Gayan, who advised that he'd be looking after us for the duration of our visit. He showed us to our room and explained how the lights, tv and other gadgets worked (it took a while for us to get the hang of the various switches as there were many!). We were a bit apprehensive about having what is described as a butler, but in reality, it worked really well. He was essentially our dedicated consierge, and was always on-hand to help us with anything we need, and despite being very independent travellers, we were surprised how helpful we found having a friendly face to go to!

The hotel has a very relaxed approach...they tell you to treat it as your home, and they mean it. You can pretty much eat when you want, where you want, and relax anywhere inside or outside. All the staff we encountered were extremely friendly and helpful, from the bar staff to the "Domos", and the chef.

The hotel is beautifully decorated, keeping many original features, plus some modern touches. It is stunning. The pink pool at the back of the property was being re-decked while we were there, but it looks amazing.

All twelve rooms in the hotel are actually suites. Ours was overlooking the front of the hotel, but we weren't too troubled by outside noise (although light sleepers may struggle with the cars beeping on the Galle Road). The toilet and shower in our room were actually housed in glass cabinets in the bedroom (the loo's was frosted though!). The bed was incredibly comfy and felt luxurious.

Finally, the food was really good...breakfast was plated rather than buffet, and included a bread/pastry basket and fruit plate in addition to Sri Lankan and western options. The Zaza Bar is pretty cool, and the cocktails were amongst the best we've had anywhere.

We'd definitely stay again, if we were to visit Sri Lanka.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the hotel may be quieter.
