Lovely comfortable room. Nice roof top bar happy hour between 5.30-7.30pm and jazz band Friday night. Pool gym and spa.
Close location to barefoot and laksala for shopping. Barefoot has lovely courtyard also which has jazz session on Sunday afternoons.
Close to the cricket club for food and drinks.

Room Tip: Rooms on 2nd floor seem to be noisiest

The Colombo Courtyard is a true boutique hotel with interesting and uniquely designed features in particular the sculptures in the reception and around the pool. The hotel is laid out well and has many of the services you'll need e.g. Spa, gym, 3 bar/ restaurants. We went to the rooftop bar for live jazz and dinner which was a lovely way to spend an evening.

We originally booked a standard room which was a bit noisy from the main road, however after asking to move rooms we were promptly upgraded to a suite which was amazing - sofa area and big bath tub to name but a few additional perks! Compared to this room you did feel like the standard room was slightly overpriced as it was much more compact. It would also have been nice to have got a complimentary breakfast included in the rate.

The location was good, a short tuk tuk from the main sites but not walkable in the heat! The staff were polite and very helpful with trying to help us arrange our transport to Kandy amidst the New Year celebrations/ disruptions to transport.

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at Colombo Coutyard.

We'd booked for a Superior Deluxe but my wife managed to spot a bug as soon as we entered our room so the management promptly got us upgraded to a Suite without a hassle which was nice. Since it was our last night in SriLanka, we didn't wander around the hotel to check out the amenities but the room itself was great. Loved the bathroom setup in the suite and the four poster bed with bed side controls was extremely comfortable. Room service for a late dinner was so-so but the complimentary breakfast next morning was fantastic. Extremely elaborate and delicious. To top it off the waiter was extremely friendly and a cricket fan that led to some interesting conversations. Overall our experience was pleasant. Would go back for sure.

Located near Paradise Road, just 5 min walk to Paradise Cafe. Lovely small boutique hotel . Large rooms, well appointed, stayed in Suite Room with my wife. Had a small private garden.

The only downside, was that we were there on a Sunday , and the hotel hosts of this afternoon brunch at their poolside, which is also open to outsiders, hence too much loud music and chatter , did disturb the Sunday.

But the hotel staff was very helpful, they even coyurired one of my bags that i left behind, with all articles intact.

All in all , a hotel worth every penny.

We loved this cozy hotel with its quirky sculptures made of bicycle parts and the artistic staff who took great pride in arranging a masterpiece elephant or swan sculpture on our bed every morning with our towels and fresh flowers. The restaurant serves a delicious breakfast in the morning with homemade breads, excellent coffee and a choice of Western or Asian specialities. The room we had was very large with a well designed bathroom and natural amenities. It's very close to Jeffrey Bawa's studio, in a more quiet residential district and a short tuk tuk ride to the rest of Colombo's attractions.
