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...

Staff waited up for us despite very late (1 am) arrival. Room was fine, with fridge, A/C, good bed, all in good working condition. Bathroom was a bit smelly and could do with a touch up, but everything worked fine. Standard Sri Lankan breakfast is served on the lovely common areas on each floor. Very quiet location in a little...

We stayed 1 night at Whitehouse Residencies before travelling to Kandy. The room was surprisingly spacious and had everything we needed (aircon!) We didn't like Colombo so it made it much better having a comfortable place to stay. The service was good- pickup arranged from the airport plus a taxi to Kandy when trains were fully booked for the Perahera....

It is clean, well furnished and has three floors with 3 rooms to every floor and a lounge and breakfast area The staff are excellent always courteous and helpful. Unlike a hotel room this...

I had stayed with my wife for 3 nights at Whitehouse Residencies and I take this time to promote this lovely place to all travelers. From the airport pick up which was arranged for us, to the staff welcoming us at 2am in the morning on arrival. It is a centrally located Hotel with big rooms and ensuite bath. The...
