“Best hotel I've ever stayed at”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2014

Arrived bright and early at 6am, service was superb. They got us coffee and breakfast and made the room in under hour. The room was amazing, hands down the best I've stayed in. We stayed for 2 nights but wished it could be a longer stay. In fact I'd be quite happy to live here. The bathroom was a huge highlight with a giant bath tub and dual rainforest shower heads. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

We stayed one night here prior to departing Colombo. The team have done a wonderful job refurbishing the 200+ year old building and putting a very unique spin on the rooms with the designs. The tiles are from the original building, coupled with some modern touches including some interesting lighting (see below for the bed lighting). The rooms are very large, we had a lounge room, bedroom, massive bathroom with dual vanities, dual waterfall showers and a study. It was an amazing amount of space for a very old building that has been refurbished very well.

We were tended to by our own butler Guiyan who was very helpful in arranging a driver for us on our last day. We were keen to head out to another restaurant we were recommended, but he was very keen for us to try their restaurant. Tired after a long journey, we ate there and enjoyed a fantastic meal which was also great value - probably the best Kotthu Roti I had in my whole time in SL, although a little too hot for my wife's liking! From this experience and the recommendations for our driver, if you have your own itinerary, I'd suggest being firm on where you'd like to go and what you want to see.

The only downside to our stay was an incessant mouse, bug etc which seemed to be rustling around in our air conditioning system all night. I guess this is part and parcel of staying in an older building, but did cause something of an interrupted sleep.

I'm sure we'll be back to SL again in the future, and whilst I enjoyed my stay, might look at something closer to the Old Dutch hospital next time around.

Keep up the good work team.

Room Tip: There are only a handful of rooms which may be very different in size and decor. See if you can have...

We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of our 3 week holiday and it was the perfect end. This hotel, or should I say, stunningly refurbished mansion, is spectacular. Our personal butler Guiyan was brilliant, we felt like royalty!

We hadn't planned on dining here, but were tired on our first night so chose to eat in. It was the most amazing food and service - we both agree it was the best (and cheapest) 3 course meal we have had together in 2.5 years. Service was the most attentive I've ever experienced.

I would absolutely recommend, I can't speak more highly of this hotel, and all it's staff - thank you Casa Colombo!

I loved this hotel. What a stunning building. I saw 2 of the rooms while we were there as we also had friends staying there. I love this kind of boutique hotel. Some really quirky touches that were very much to my taste. I didn’t hear any noise from the nightclub that others have mentioned but then again I am a heavy sleeper – and even moreso in the very comfortable beds at Casa Colombo.

The pool area is also great to relax in after a long hot day sightseeing. The service was also great and they couldn’t do enough for us. We spent a few hours drinking cocktails in the bar one night which was also fun.

I highly recommend the hotel arranging a tuk tuk driver to take you around the city for a few hours. Casa Colombo arranged this for us.

We had breakfast at the hotel each morning as it was included. I can’t say much about the breakfast as it wasn’t really to my taste although a lot of selection. Having said that, I found the food in Sri Lanka generally disappointing so not specific to this hotel.

We really enjoyed our 2 night stay in Casa Colombo. The rooms are really something special, spacious and many cool details. Its a little dated, but it didnt matter for our short stay. The rooms comes with your private butler. We had a really funny butler who arranged restaurant bookings, tuk tuk trip around town and transport to the airport.
The food was ok. We had curry for dinner- really good. The breakfast not so good, it was not as fresh as the other hotels we stayed on in Sri Lanka.
The pool area is good, pink pool is fun but needs a little clean- up.
All in all a very nice stay, a very special boutique hotel in the middel of Colombo.
