First of all, our room at Whitehouse Residencies was good: spacious, clean, a/c and nice staff. The breakfast is good and there is even a selection of DVDs available for a rainy day. However, it was really strange that we were asked to pre-pay a room booked with credit card backing. I've never seen that before, and having to find...

Price was about 120$ per room. Bathroom seemed old and could be cleaner. Bed was very comfortable. Not many taxi drivers know the place btw. Staff was friendly but their english could be better.

In spite of being in the central part of...

Located in central location from where all the main attractions of Colombo are nearby. Rooms are nicely maintained, however bathrooms are quite basic. You may find two good Indian restaurants at walking distance. Although they specify that microwave and utensils are available, but they don't allow you to cook anything. Staff is helping though. Breakfast had very little options for...

Great place to stay in Colombo! We really liked the size of the room, larger then average, with plenty of space and surfaces. It's near Galle Face Green, plus also plenty of shops and eating places. It's more like a small apartment building than a hotel, but the services were there when we needed them - e.g. booking an early...

We decided to stay in a different part of Colombo for our last night (we stayed in Colombo Fort when we arrived). It was good to see a different part of the city and Whitehouse Residencies is well located for the Museum and central park area. Our room was large and spacious with a small balcony (great for hanging out...
