The entrance looks a bit weird but once you are inside the Casa the interior design is quite amazing. The rooms are a combination of modern design in a classical building, blending retro with modern art in a perfect sense. The hotels looks best at dusk so be sure to be there around 6.30. Rooms are equipped with modem, fax printer DVD players flat screen TV minibar, the whole works. I stayed in the Chatham Street Suite - with two levels and a working desk upstairs where the Tv and minibar are. I really like the red light coming out under the bed never seen that before. Then the breakfast was a combination of breads, with a Sri Lanka Curry and rice + a basket of fruit that looked like it was designed by a florist. Then after my tour of the city I was so tired I just wanted a small bite so I ordered the Sri Lanka Rice and curry, and they brought back seven dishes !!! They were all to good to be true so I was depressed I wasnt hungry more. The staff explained all names of the curries and Sambals so I can order them somwhere else. Overall a very good experience. PS you get your own personal butler here that caters to all your needs. That was a first time for me.

my fiancee and I booked a suite here for 1 night as part of a short break in sri lanka, and eveything about the hotel was amazing, the hospitality of the staff and private butler, the design and attention to detail in the rooms and the fabulous food. We were made to feel very special and wanted to stay an extra night but it was fully booked. We will recommend this hotel to all our friends and will definately stay there again if we return to sri lanka. Becky & John (Dubai)

Hidden in behind the busy highway this place was a welcome sanctuary from the chaos that is Colombo. It was great to be able to immerse yourself in Colombo, then retire to Casa Colombo for a bit of quiet time to relax and rejuvenate.

The hotel itself is a beautiful old building and our room was huge. Some of the decor though really clashed.

Thank you for your review of CASA Colombo, and for sharing your experience with us and other travllers.

Yes, we too like to think of CASA Colombo as a very homely and welcoming place, a sanctuary where you can enjoy a relaxing and quiet time listening to soft music, and very soon with a drink in your hand as we will soon be opening up the bar at CASA Colombo.

This homeliness coupled with the luxury of a star class hotel, is what sets us apart from the rest, and we hope we will see you again at CASA Colombo.

The hotel is really hidden away, it is a supurbely restored historic property. The staff cannot do enough to help you out and regularly go the extra mile. We were assigned a personal 'domo' (Arrun) who made sure our every need was satisfied. The morning we left, he came to work at 5.50 am to make sure our breakfast was prepared and taxi arrived as required. A great stay. The food was fab and very good value. Unfortunatly there was some complication with the alcohol license, so we had to BYO....but that was easily arranged.

If you are looking for a sterile "typical 5*" hotel, this is not for you....it is much better! Our room had a unique layout....shower and toilet in glass cabins in the sitting room....a huge copper plated & ceramic bath in what must have once been a sun room....we loved it all!!

Room Tip: ask for an upgrade.

It was our pleasure to have served you, and to make sure that everything was in place for your trip. It is something we do from the bottom of our hearts. We truly appreciate your review of CASA Colombo.

You will be pleased to note that we now have our liquor license and will soon be opening up a bar, which will no doubt be the talk of the town just like CASA Colombo! So the next time you visit you can enjoy a drink of your choice whilst relaxing by the pool or lounging in the lobby at CASA Colombo.

See you soon….!!
