I only spent one night here, but it's the perfect place after a long journey when you want a beautiful, clean and luxurious room/bathroom (gorgeous tub for a bath!) and the staff was friendly and helpful. It's tucked away so it's nice and quiet but centrally located and easy to get to shopping/food options from there. The breakfast was also...

A very nice place with delightful staff, in a good location, and well priced compared to bigger places. Nice food. And an interesting pool arrangement. In room wifi is available, although if connection is weak you may need to ask them to position a router outside your room. Certainly a place we would stay at again.

Colombo Hotel by Ceilao Villas, is an amazing place to stay. We are doing a bit of a luxury tour the first 2 weeks in Sri Lanka and we could not have started better. The rooms aren’t over luxurious but have all you need. They are spacious, the beds are the best, there is a big tv, plenty of closets...

Our room was lovely (huge), the pool was great and there were lots of nice touches - like shampoo etc in the bathroom and a nicely furnished lobby. That said, it didn't feel as luxury as the pictures suggest: wasn't a super professional service and it didn't feel quite finished. Out of season might explain that, although price doesn't! Overall...

Good spot just outside (10 minute or so tuk tuk journey) of the main centre. Good wifi, air con and exceptionally comfy beds. Didn't try the breakfast, so not sure how good / bad it is. A couple good restaurants within 10-15 minutes walking (liked Kamae Sutra). Minor drawback is the outlets in the room are three round prongs only....

This is a lovely quiet hotel in Colombo with great, helpful staff and large comfortable rooms. Breakfast was also good. We felt that this hotel was the best value hotel we stayed in whilst in Sri Lanka. Although the hotel is slightly out of he centre, the Fort area is only a tuktuk ride away.

We only stayed one night at this lovely hotel in Colombo and enjoyed every minute of our stay.  The manager, who speaks excellent English, helped us hail tuk tuks and gave us helpful tips to find our way around the capital. Delicious breakfast by the pool; clean, spacious, quiet rooms. We highly recommend it!

This older functionalist villa makes a perfect small design hotel. Price for size of rooms, their style and equipment and comfort you get overall is GREAT. Food is excellent, you can enjoy shady garden and a two-storey swimming pool if you need to cool down. Service is very good. 100% recommend.
