“The Real "Wow" Factor!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 December 2013

What a sensational Boutique Hotel, just south of the capital city of Colombo. The hotel is just set back off busy and bustling Galle Road, although you wouldn't know it from the peace and quiet. Casa Colombo is just sublime, from the huge and well appointed rooms (suites), including huge bathroom, double showers; plenty of room to spread out, to the very relaxed outdoor areas.
Your private Domo (butler) is on-hand to attend to all of your needs. The in-house restaurant is sensational, as is the breakfast each morning in the hotel lobby.
It is an easy walk along Galle Road to many of the shops and shopping malls.
Truly amazing to think that the original building is a 200 year old Moorish mansion.
This is a must stay!

It is not everyone who will appreciate the glorious and majestic history of a 200 year old mansion, and also the work we have put in to bring it to ultra-modern standards, while still keeping the beauty of a bygone era.

We love it that you have what it takes to truly appreciate what CASA Colombo is all about. Thank you for a most wonderful review and some beautiful comments. We loved having you with us, and taking care of you.

We do look forward to another visit from you very soon, for another wonderful experience with our Team at CASA Colombo.

Sunny regards,
Horst

I sadly only had one night here and could easily stayed longer in this chic retreat. A real oasis of style where you made very welcome as soon as you arrive. When they showed me my room it was more like a suite! And if that wasnt enough he announced he was my Butler! He wasnt a real butler, but it just goes to show that nothing is too much trouble. There is a bar out the front the hotel which is fun and breakfast the next mornning was just right- again with that perfect belend of service and frendliness. I would definitely suggest you indulge in this gem just like I did.

This is an excellent hotel for couples. It is what its designed for. It is romantic, chic, charming, and so much more than just a place to stay as so many hotels are.

The suites are well appointed. We felt as if we were the only guests there - in a good way.
The pool is a lovely shady oasis from the heat and noise of downtown Colombo.
Its easy to get tuktuks to and from - the concierge can arrange a day rate so you don't have to haggle. We'd read reviews where people commented the location was not good, but we both think they're mistaken. It is hidden off the main road, but that is a positive against street noise and provides privacy. If you want beachfront - where you can't swim anyway, stay in one of the large impersonal hotels on noisy Galle Rd.
Daily a la carte breakfast is lovely. Again, you feel as if the staff are waiting on, and for you alone.
The photos you see on their website are an accurate representation of how lovely the place is. That's not true of all properties. As it is an old colonial building, so you can see little areas that need a touch up, but that's not to say it is not maintained. Like everything, it needs constant attention.
If we're in Colombo, we would not hesitate to stay there again.
It is a delightful place to stay and we recommend it unreservedly.

What a great little place in colombo. I stayed here for business, in all reality probably mainly a place for leisure but no one won't feel at home at casa colombo. This is truly a home away from home. Its an old colonial mansion house redecorated into a hotel that blends unique classic charm with trend and modern.

Huge and very cool rooms. You could fit a normal double room in london into their bathrooms. Great beds, nice lounge area for tv watching and listening to music. Waterfall shower room is exactly what you need to wake up in the morning. Room had good wifi and work space.

Great bar just outside the entrance and the pink pool is great for relaxing.

Service was superb.

All in all, well worth a visit if in sri lanka

Well we arrived yesterday after being picked up from the airport and as expected Casa colombo is lovely. Our room is lovely and the staff are very attentive, as it's our first trip to Sri Lanka all advice given is greatly appreciated. The breakfast is great and we had dinner last night which was also very good, would definitely stay again without hesitation. there is also a little foot spa as you turn right out of the hotel which is very sweet and reasonably priced. Make sure you visit House of fashion if you fancy a bit of clothes shopping!!!!

We stayed 26 days in Sri Lanka but only our first 2 nights at the Casa Colombo, this was by far the best experience of all the hotels we stayed at. Absolutely loved the hotel, the staff and our stay there and wished we could have stayed longer. We have already recommended your wonderful hotel to our friends, the only problem they are now having is to find a vacancy while they are in SL. I found the position of the hotel just off a busy street a bit quirky, as it is surrounded by buildings, but don't let it put you off unless you are wanting beachfront. The room we had # 10 on the ground floor was stunning, we have already come home and lit up our bed just like they have.
We only had one meal in the restaurant but it was huge and we were very impressed with the wait staff, very friendly and competent. Our 'domo' Arun was very helpful and took us upstairs to see the photos of the restoration progress of the hotel. The work completed to restore the hotel and convert it from a family home (in ruins) into this stunning, unique and modern gem is brilliant. Outside is also wonderful and I may have gone over the top but I took a 10 minute video of the inside and outside as still photos just would not do it justice.
I would love to return to SL one day and I would definitely stay here again.
Regards to all the team at Casa Colombo!

Room Tip: If you are concerned about privacy you may not like room # 10 as it is on the ground floor immediate...
