A nice, clean and spacious room. Good facilities in room and a living area outside the room. Had a pleasant sleep and it was pretty quiet. Location is good and not too far from main train station and the beach.

We got a couple of rooms on the first floor, and my room was perfect. No complaints. Fairly large, and comfortable. However, in the adjacent room, the bathroom door knob was missing and both the hangers inside came down as soon as we hung a towel. However, the stay was pleasant and the chef fed us with wonderful food at... More

First of all, our room at Whitehouse Residencies was good: spacious, clean, a/c and nice staff. The breakfast is good and there is even a selection of DVDs available for a rainy day. However, it was really strange that we were asked to pre-pay a room booked with credit card backing. I've never seen that before, and having to find... More

Price was about 120$ per room. Bathroom seemed old and could be cleaner. Bed was very comfortable. Not many taxi drivers know the place btw. Staff was friendly but their english could be better.

This location is situated in the centre of Colombo near many shops, businesses, restaurants, malls, and tourist sites. Guests are greeted on the ground floor and then escorted to the third floor where payment can be made for room bookings. The rooms are large and clean, with all the usual appointments. In spite of being in the central part of... More

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... More

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... More
