“Excellent!”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

We stayed at Casa for one night and had a truly wonderful experience. I had planned a surprise for my husband, and Gayan the personal assistant allocated to us was extremely friendly and supportive and went out of his way to make my surprise plans a success! The traveller suite we stayed in was a bit darker than I expected, possibly due to the fact that there was no opening or natural light, but apart from this the room was very nice with all of the facilities / accessories one would expect and more.

Food - the tapas we ordered were very tasty, just a word of caution - portions are really small! Dinner at HVN was super - everything we ordered tasted good and the service was excellent.

Decor - loved the fusion of antique architecture and the hip and modern decor and music.

All in all a great experience and we would definitely go back there.

Room Tip: We stayed in a room with no view, which was fine since it was just one night. But if you are stayin...

I tripped upon Casa Colombo while researching on the net for good hotels to stay in Colombo. And what a find it was! We stayed in Colombo en-route to Maldives. The experience of staying in this stylish boutique hotel was amazing! So much effort has gone into every minute detail! It is a heritage bungalow which has been tastefully converted into a hotel. The rooms are large with state-of-the-art gizmos. The digital control panel (which looks like an iphone) which controls the lights/fans is very interesting. The copper bath tub is super sexy. There were always ample towels in the large bathroom. A laptop with free wifi was thoughtful. Though the interiors were not minimalistic yet it was not over-the-top. There was no time restriction for breakfast. They even have a pillow-menu! Hows that!!!!

The hospitality of this place is top class. Arrun, our personal domo (butler) did an excellent job of taking care of us. He would greet us at the door whatever time we returned to the hotel. He gave personal attention to our eating needs, shopping, tours, everything!

I would surely highly recommend this place to anyone I know going to Colombo. I am surely going to stay here on my next visit to Colombo too.

Thanks for making our stay so comfortable!! Special thanks to Arrun & the manager for their hospitality!

Gayan was our personal assistant and he always welcomed us with a smile. We loved the rooms and appreciate the design and the effort taken to create an excellent atmosphere. I would always stay at the Casa colombo on my next visit to Colombo.
We liked the idea of waking up late without being bothered of missing out on breakfast like most hotels. Guys you are doing a great job and keep it up.

We went to Sri Lanka to celebrate my birthday and choosing Casa Colombo was definitely the best choice we could have made. I would definitely go back to the hotel. The property was not very big, but tastefully done. However, what set it apart was the hospitality by the staff. We were assigned a personal butler and I must say Gayan took great care of us. He was always available and we wondered when he slept. He also guided us to a number of places within Sri Lanka and ensured we went to great places and enjoyed our stay even when we were not at the hotel. The food was great. I have recommended the place to all my friends and will definitely go back some day.

Word of caution - Don't stay with friends in the hotel as the shower cubicle has no curtains and is fully transparent.

I had a great time at Casa Colombo when visiting the city recently for a business trip. The concept of the hotel is special and unique in the city. A highly hip, modern, funky hotel set in colonial building setting. The room I stayed in, a Traveller Suite, was very big, with a separate living room. I enjoyed the great high-tech music setup and tv system. There were funky unusual little touches all over the room. Breakfast was high quality and filling served in an a la carte style anywhere in the hotel. The topping on the stay to make it a truly memorable experience was the excellent service provided by my personal butler Arrun which was attentive and yet unobtrusive, supported by the other staff and with the further helpful attention of the Manager. I very much look forward to returning to the hotel on a future trip, with hopefully the family in tow.

Stayed twice during a recent holiday. Room, team in the hotel, pool, breakfast, bar all superb. Real character and lots of thought in the details. Location is a bit away from other luxury hotels but a bonus as allows you to explore another part of town. There's always a handy tuk tuk = 5 mins or about £1.50. Always interesting to see what music is playing!

CASA Colombo is all about hospitality and that very personal experience, and it is so satisfying that this is exactly what you have experienced during your stay, or rather stays, with us. We all agree that the real bonus for us, is having lovely people like you staying with us.

Sri Lanka is indeed rich in culture and colour, and the tuk tuks of Sri Lanka are an experience all on its own!

The CASA Colombo Team is looking forward to seeing you again very very soon.

My Wife and I stayed at Casa Colombo with our baby daughter, the only down side was that we were only there for 10 hours in between connecting flights. Be warned, it is quite a long transfer from the airport - 90 minutes in a taxi ($25). However, if you make the effort you will be rewarded with a friendly welcome and a beautiful boutique hotel. I love this place and we are intending to visit for a weekend later in the year to fully enjoy it.

For us too, the only downside of having you with us, was that it was a very short stay. We wish we had more time to look after you and pamper you at CASA Colombo. We are nevertheless very happy to note that you enjoyed the few hours you had with us.

Thank you for a great review of CASA Colombo, and we look forward to the day when we will have the opportunity to have you with us for a longer period. See you soon.
