“Stunning hotel with great staff”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

Colombo and this hotel was our first stop of our tour of Sri Lanka and it did not disappoint. The building is of Moorish design with beautiful original floors and ceilings. Our room was massive with a separate seating room and huge bathroom. The bathroom was fab looking, but a tad dark to do your makeup in! But with a computer, Ipod dock and a great tub bath in the bedroom I wasn't complaining! Arron who was our Casa Domo was very helpful and friendly showing us around and explaining things to us about the hotel and local area. The restaurant has a fresco painting on one side of the wall which really made the place feel different from anywhere else. The food was very good value, but a bit laking in the quality we had else where on our trip.

The area the hotel is in is away from the main hub of the city so if you want to visit the main sites you need to arrange to get a taxi. But there are shops and few things like a coffee shop not too far away on foot. This is a great hotel and would really recommend it, as it is small and beautiful.

Had such a lovely time staying in this exceptional hotel at the beginning of Sri Lankan holiday, cut beach holiday short by one night to return to Casa Colombo before heading home to UK, so a great beginning and end to our holiday.
This hotel is fantastic, an oasis of calm in Colombo providing impeccable 5 star service. The hotel building itself and the decor are stunning, a great mix of tradition and modern funkiness. The suites are amazing, we were stunned with the size of our first one (Rm no 2?), huge bedroom, lounge, marvelous large copper bath in a small room to itself. So many extras laptop, music system, ipod charger, flat screen tv, and more. Our 'Domo' was the charming and delightful Giayan, on both occasions, such a treat, he made our stay extra special.
Food very good and pleasingly inexpensive for such a outstanding hotel and the staff are very friendly as well as being extremely professional. Was nearly put off from having a massage as they are rather expensive but I decided to have one and pleased to say it was excellent.
Cannot recommend this hotel highly enough and thank you to all those tripadvisor reviewers who directed us to this hotel when we were searching for somewhere to stay in Colombo last December.....it was as fantastic as you said.

We stayed at Casa Colombo for 2 nights in March 2013 in the Traveller Suite. The room was absolutely gorgeous. A large duplex with TV and sofa upstairs and bedroom and bathroom with his n hers sinks. The food and the service was fantastic - we had our own host who looked after us throughout our stay. The bar was also very nice - with great deals on drinks in Happy Hour. It is a great boutique hotel with small but lovely pool and lush outdoor areas. Awesome value for money. Only very small downside was the location - it's a bit of a walk to the Galle Face Green and the beach which is where most of the action seemed to be but plenty of tuk tuks to get you around.

After 11 nights travelling around Sri Lanka on a fairly tight budget we decided to splash out a little for our last night in Colombo before flying home.. Are we glad we did; absolutely!! The whole team at CASA Colombo go out of their way to ensure that your stay is seamless and that everything they can do is done with a smile. The suite we had was simply awesome! huge comfortable bed, lovely bathroom, luxurious amenities, relaxed lounge area, office area with complimentary laptop, gigantic copper bath in the bedroom with a waterfall effect tap. etc etc..

The food was also extremely reasonably prices and I had the beef tenderloin entrée, which was by far the best main course I had during my entire stay in Sri Lanka.

The pool is currently having a new restaurant built next to it, but the works are being kept to a minimum and shielded off well, so we enjoyed a dip in the 'pink pool' in the evening and again before we left in the morning!

Overall a great stay and CASA Colombo lived up to our expectations as #1 on tripadvisor!

It is fabulous people like you who have made us the No. 1 Hotel on Trip Advisor, and a big heartfelt thank you to you for the lovely review. Our CASA Colombo team enjoyed reading it.

We are very happy to have been able to make the last night of your Sri Lankan holiday a memorable one, and to have contributed to you having an overall wonderful experience in Sri Lanka. We do hope you were able to see some of the fabulous sights around the country, from the sunny beaches to the cool climes of the hill country.

It is great that you were able to relax and unwind at CASA Colombo after a long tour around the country, and we would like nothing more than to see you once again at CASA Colombo, but next time for a much longer stay.

We spent our first two nights in Sri Lanka at the Casa Colombo hotel. It was a perfect introduction to Sri Lanka and set us off on our way.

Room was spacious with the bed being wonderfully comfortable which resulted in 12 hrs of perfect sleep.

Staff are always attentive and helpful.

Hotel as a whole benifits from an interior fitout which is miles above the blandness of most hotels.

Finally value for money it's a 10 out if 10.

After travelling round Sri Lanka for 3 weeks, we decided to book into Casa Colombo for a final night of style and relaxation. We were not disappointed.

The hotel is stunning, with great care and attention being made to the decor, preserving original features whilst combining with modern and stylish furniture. Our bedroom (Room 8, Schofield Suite) was out of this world. Huge, with everything you could possibly need; mini bar, computer, sound systems etc. The cast iron bath was wonderful allowing a relaxing soak after a hard day of travelling and literally sizeable enough to almost swim in! It really is a 5 star boutique hotel!

There service is faultless from the moment you arrive, with welcome drinks and a refreshing towelette to cool yourself down. People were always on hand for what ever you need, at the pool, restaurant etc, they cannot do enough for you, whilst also not overdoing it - the perfect balance. The manager clearly prides himself in delivering first class customer service, making sure he personally speaks to all the guests and checking that everything is at per their expectations.

The pool is great, with an option of sun loungers and towels (some literally the size of a double bed sheet!). The spa is wonderful and the massage is up there as being one of the best i have had.

Value wise, the cost of the hotel is a little expensive but you pay for what you get after all is it 5 star and in my opinion is worth EVERY penny. In terms of food and drink, i was utterly surprised at how reasonable it was... it was AMAZING VALUE with no mark up and cheaper than some other low key places we had been to!!

Casa Colombo is a real gem and I will certainly visit again and recommend to anyone travelling to Colombo. You really really will not be disappointed and it's a place that i will always remember as a truly memorable and wonderful experience.

Thank you Casa Colombo, you have really created a stunning and first class boutique hotel experience.

Just returned from 2-nights in the casa with wife and 2-kids. Overall an excellent stay.

The service was first class, food very tasty and great value, happy 2-hours in the bar very happy. Cool and quirky decor throughout with some great tunes throughout the hotel.

The hotel is located in a great spot for sightseeing in Colombo with most sights within half an hour.
