The hotel's design and amenities are what you'd expect from a boutique chain, and the majority of the staff are welcoming, attentive, and respectful. The rooms are excellent; clean, well-appointed, and tech enabled. The food options in the hotel are a good value, and the gym, pool, and rooftop bar provide ample opportunity to unwind. Though I didn't experience it personally, several members of my party (along with many, many, many guests) had their room keycards malfunction throughout the stay. These keycards control access to your floor as well as your room, and are required to enable power in your room for lights, outlets, etc. The hotel itself is very, very small, so if you go to the restaurant, or the lobby, or the rooftop bar, or the pool, or the gym, at the wrong time, you'll be waiting or will be out of luck. The elevators say they hold 11 people max, but barely fit five people comfortably. All these quibbles are minor when considering the price you pay for the clean, excellent rooms and service.
Great hotel, exceeded my expectationd in every way. Would defintely stay here again.
This chic hotel just five minutes from the Liberty mall and National Museum is a great place to stay in Colombo. It reminds me of the boutique hotels in San Francisco, with quirky design and elegance. Most of the staff were very helpful and pleasant. The breakfast buffet is a good deal and includes both western and traditional dishes. The rooftop bar is a great place to relax, as is the infinity pool. It's a great value for the money, compared to other hotels in the capitol. Since most staff were helpful and friendly, those who weren't stood out quite a bit. The hotel lobby is oddly split, with check in on the 7th floor. For all its charm, the hotel is VERY small and so the restaurant, bar, and pool can fill up very quickly.
This was a perfect hotel in a great location. We traveled all over Sri Lanka and found this hotel to meet or exceed every expectation. The room was perfect, the pool area was pure luxury and the restaurant choices were excellent. I would stay there again. The only "quirk" was that the elevators were not air conditioned. But they were fast, so we didn't have to be in them very long!
- Staff were generally polite. - I was disappointed by the on site travel desk. Further, there was a Michael Jackson tribute concert which meant that there was a lot of noise until 11 PM on two evenings (one was a rehersal evening). I was not informed of this at the time of making the reservation.
a good location and comfotable hotel with pleasant satff no
The hotel is a very nice boutique hotel, with good taste in decoration, comfortable, almost luxurious. The suites are wide and very comfortable. The stay in Casa Colombo is truly a unique experience, very enjoyable. The hotel charges you for services performed by other companies, mainly the transfers. What happens is that you pay double the price for services, retaining the hotel half of what you pay. I requested the hotel transfer from the airport and, although I was promised a luxury car, and expected a nice car from the hotel, I was contacted at the airport by an Avis employee and was transported by a regular Avis car. However I paid at least double of what Avis would have charged me. I believe that the hotel should not charge for services provided by third parties, since it is an obligation of the hotel to provide such contacts. When I traveled from Colombo to Galle I ended up paying for a much nicer car 80 usd when the hotel requested for an Avis regular car 170 usd.
