With its excellent facilities and friendly staff, there’s no way you won’t enjoy your stay here! We arrived very early to the hotel and was met by the pleasant staff. They were very hospitable greeting us with welcome drinks and preparing the rooms for us to have an early check in. We had a delicious breakfast shortly after. There was an option of a few different breakfasts but we all enjoyed them. Fresh fruit, pancakes and a lovely curry were on offer. A great way to start the day! The rooms were specious and very clean. With comfortable beds and all common hotel room facilities available, we all felt at home in our individual rooms. When we needed to make our way around Colombo, the hotel staff were very kind and advised us on where to go and transport information too. If you are going to stay in Colombo, I doubt you’ll find anywhere better to stay than Colombo House by Ceilao Villas! Enjoy!!

From the beginning we arrive it was not so great there is no receptionist in front desk, and the location of the hotel is quite difficult to find, the room is not so great we couldn’t even lock the room from the key that we have due maintenance issue the picture of the room is exactly not same like the way they post on booking.com my boy friend want to give a little surprise on my birthday but they could not do properly even though he spoke about it , receptionist response is very slow , the good thing from this hotel is just only the breakfast service, the decoration is quite modern and the swimming pool. If you want to enhances your self with the hospitality this hotel probably not recommended for you.

This is a very stylishly designed villa in Cinnamon Gardens, well located only a short tuktuk ride away from most sights. Our room was huge, very comfortable and, like the whole hotel, had a cool design. And it had a ceiling fan, which we really appreciated since we don’t like sleeping in AC (tho there is AC too of course). Breakfast, served in a little garden among the palm trees , was good, and staff was very helpful. We really liked the place and recommend!

We stayed at Colombo House to begin and end our stay in Sri Lanka. The architecture is wonderful, the rooms are spotless and the service was excellent. It is set in a quiet and clean part of the city with easy access to nearby sights. We could not have been happier with our choice.

Room was clean and comfortable, staff friendly, and food excellent. my only recommendation is to ensure there is no interruption to hot water as we had experienced. I would also have liked to choose a room on the first floor rather than ground.

This hotel manages to provide all amenities desired, including excellent food, in an ambiance of wonderful architecture with great attention to detail, much friendliness and professional and personal attention to your needs.The rooms are comfy and spacious (the only let down in my room being the height of some doorways, but I am tall..) and the pool (two actually, the one on the 1st floor more a drinks & chill spot) a nice plunge. All in all a great place that - as my only tiny comment - could do with a bit more diversity in the lounge music it plays throughout the day - this becomes rather noticable when you are working from their premises..

I stayed at this premises during a week long business trip to Sri Lanka. The hotel is located in a very nice area of Colombo, with walking distance to many of the nice restaurants and cafes. It is situated in a nice walking area of Colombo. The premises itself is a nice building with many open spaces , for lounging and lot of light and fresh air to breath in and feel. The hotel staff was wonderful. They took care of all the needs of the guests with pleasure. They went extra miles to make our stay extra special. If I am to recommend anything, all I can think of is diversity of music in the restaurant. I will definitely return to this place in the future.
