Casa Colombo is a 12 suite Retro-chic hotel that blends a contemporary deigner style with the charms of a magnificent 200 year old Moorish mansion. Built by one of the wealthiest Indian trading families at the time, the mansion is adorned with acres of Italian and Indian mosaic floors, carved arches, molded ceilings and Moorish styled balconies, and is one of the few remaining treasures of its era. A significant part of creating this hotel involved restoring the building back to its former grandeur.
Located in Bambalapitiya in Colombo 4, it is in the heart of Colombo’s business district, however as its neatly cosseted away from the busy Galle road by its own cul de sac, it is a gated and very private hotel.
Each of its suites are unique as rooms were created from within a house, and therefore, no two suites are alike. Each has its own distinct colour hues, layout and character. Yet all suites offer space and the finest in comfort and conveniences. Suites are 500 sqft (45 Sq mtrs) on average and go up to to 1,000 sq ft (90 sq mtrs) in space. What makes our Suites uniquely different is our very distinct designer style, since every piece of furniture, décor, fabric and lighting has been custom designed by the hotels founder Lalin Jinasena. Contrary to common practice of sourcing furniture from around the world, ours were made to our design in Sri Lanka. Therefore the exclusive style of Casa Colombo cannot be seen or found anywhere else in the world.
There are 3 categories of suites: 3 Leisure Suites, 8 Corporate Suites and 1 Royal Suite.

All suites come with a 29 inch LCD TV by Nakamitchi, which can be watched from the bed or the living room. A High Fidelity sound system by Nakamitchi and movies on an Apple iPod are some of the mod cons. A music selector designed by Lalin, is also available which plays 6 genres of music from around the world and allows you to set the tunes to your mood. The painstakingly selected music collection ranges from Paris Jazz, to salsa, clubby tunes, to chilled out lounge music.
Though our building is 200 years old, our technology is cutting edge. All rooms are WiFi enabled which is complimentary for guests to use.
