the music behind the swimming pool the location is extremely bad, the area is not safe i was really scared on the way to the hotel, its in the middle of no ware,nothing close to you no shops no supermarkets, you have to arrange your trip to airport early coz there is no taxi in the area,the food is not what i expect.
The staff are very friendly, the room is quit. the hotel has nice garden, nice pool the value for money is poor, the hotel is far away from town center, No shopping places around the hotel, there is nothing to do after 6:00 pm. you cannot get out of the hotel once it is dark.
The outdoor is marvellous The night manager was untrustworthy, asking for tips to be given to him for distributing to the staff. I gave directly to the staff and not to him. The hotel insisted on settling the bill even when it was way after midnite when I checked in. The administration was inefficient, I put up with bill settlement 5 different occassions during my stay.
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!
Location Some of the floors are not renovated
Grounds, public spaces & meeting rooms are lovely-5*. Large breakfast buffet with juice bar. Six bottles of water in my room in arrival (thoughtful) but they weren't replenished. Many wedding parties use lobby & grounds for photos-beautiful to see. My room was in the older (not refurbished) wing and it showed. Water would not turn off completely in shower, closet doors were hard to slide & did not close completely. Safe was locked open & no one showed up to fix it after I called (but it was done by 3rd day). The room next to mine was under construction or being used by staff & there was a lot of banging one night after midnight. Also, several conference attendees had stomach issues from food they ate there.
a good location and comfotable hotel with pleasant satff no
- 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.
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.
Efficient and friendly staff. Shabby pool towels and watered down cocktails.
Good breakfast. Friendly staff. Great lobby and restaurants Room clean but needs to be refurbished. Parking not available in most occasions. Rooms definitely need to be refurbished. Hallway outside the room has a unpleasant smell. Bathroom exhaust fan does not work right. Mirror gets fogged after shower. No power outlet in bathroom. Bad lighting in room.
From the moment we arrived the service was fantastic. We were greeted by all staff in an extremely friendly and professional manner. The room was great. The restaurants fantastic from the food to the service. A wonderful experience.
Very nice hotel. Breakfest absolutely lovely with a beautiful wiev over the garden. We will be back.
Unlike many Hiltons, the food in some of the restaurants was great - especially the Curry Leaf and Spoons. The Executive Lounge staff were wonderful, as were the rest of the staff at the hotel. The hotel is in a good location, especially for business or if you intend to travel by train. We had an enormous room on the top floor, in need of updating but fantastic if you have a child with you. Cocktails in the downstairs lounge were woeful - mine barely tasted of anything and had little alcohol in it (and I don't drink much so I would notice). The pool area needs to upgrade its towels. Many were frayed and threadbare.
the rate of room i been given by your office different from the actual and also they been charch me for the previouse night full price which i attend at 6 O clock morning. this is not fair.
