Casa Colombo
Ranked #17 of 54 Hotels in Colombo
Reviewed 3 March 2014

It's a small boutique hotel with a 5 star staff. We booked through Splendida and paid much less than booking with the hotel directly. We arrived at 4:15 AM, and our "personal butler" Gayan had our room ready immediately even though check in wasn't until 2ish the next day. So, this was a definite plus and a very nice gesture on the part of the hotel. Gayan was always there to assist us no matter what time of day or night. The pool was in the process of being refurbished. Work had not begun yet, but the pink pool was not pink ;) The door to our "corporate suite" was well as our friends "traveler's suite" was a bit of a nuisance and very difficult to commandeer. I would recommend the "corporate suite" over the other type of room. While it is more expensive, you don't have to deal with walking up and down a huge flight of stairs in your room with no railing! The corporate suite was all on one level and very spacious. As noted, while the pool was not wonderful, the setting out there was! Breakfast and lunch were adequate. Breakfast did not have the variety that other hotels did. But, hey, it breakfast. Calamari at lunch was wonderful but I had the tuna also, and it was a bit overcooked. There is no noise surrounding you. I would highly recommend this place, and while I am sure all the waitstaff is wonderful, asking for Gayan would be an added plus. I did not give it 5 stars because I only reserve that for extraordinary hotels. Would I stay there again? Absolutely!

Room Tip: We stayed in suite 7 and enjoyed it very much

A beautiful colonial boutique hotel wonderfully restored. Expansive rooms and tastefully decorated. You could drown in the bath! The service is brilliant and the staff are so willing to please. Nothing is too difficult for them. As the hotel is set back from the street there is no noise. This is a hotel where you can easily forget the modern world.
It's an oasis in the city of Colombo.

Room Tip: Higher floors have a view overlooking the courtyard of the pool and the Mango tree! Air con was a bi...

Perfect choice in Colombo! The building is beautifully restored with interesting art and interior design. The staff were excellent - polite, charming and very helpful. We had a wonderful dinner - one of the nicest meals we had during our holiday - and breakfast was excellent too. this hotel is a calm, sophisticated in the city. special thanks for Mr. Arun giving all the time right information about city.

I loved everything about my stay. This place left me speechless. As a travel agent I have seen a lot of hotels all over the world, but this is my favourite of all. I didn't fall in love with Sri Lanka but I sometimes consider going back just because I want to take my partner here so he can see what I'm talking about.

We were in Colombo for 5 days recently & we were very happy with our stay at Casa Colombo. There were doubts in between reviews about the noise levels from a club & it worried me a bit prior to arrival since we were arriving the hotel at midnight & on a Saturday night. I sent them an email requesting for a quiet room & was quickly replied to. Request granted and a quiet room guaranteed!Talk about service... A nice start to our vacation at such a wonderful place! Upon our arrival at midnight, our Domo Kumara was on hand to greet us. And we were immediately ushered to our suite on the 2nd Floor. Kumara was very efficient throughout our entire stay, from checkin to checkout. From the early breakfast request to room service & making reservations in restaurants for dinner.
The room was clean, spacious, located in a quiet area of the hotel, well-lighted & the bed was very comfortable. Bathroom had complete amenities, two showers, 2 sinks. The food at HVN was also very good. I enjoyed the local dishes for breakfast & dinner. Breakfast was complete- coffee, fresh juices, fresh fruits, a bread basket & a choice of either American, Continental or Sri Lankan breakfast. The hotel is well run, clean & what an excellent boutique hotel should be. My husband & I would love to come back to Sri Lankan & would not hesitate to stay at Casa Colombo again!
A highly recommended this charming hotel with an excellent staff to look after you.
Thank you very much for the warm welcome and the great service!

I dropped in at Casa Colombo on Wednsday for a dinner with my family at HVN Restaurant and the greeting we first got from the waiters were really charming. The Waiters greeted us with a smile and was very prompt in taking our order and also suggesting which dishes we should choose as it was our first time at this restaurant.
Ideally a lovely place to relax with the family and spend a laid back night out dinner at this lovely hotel. Will definetely recommend this hotel to others for a night out for dinner or even to stay a night. Beautiful decor and ambience too.
