They’ve been building this thing on Duplication Road called the Colombo Courtyard. I thought it was a mall, but turns out its a boutique city hotel. I wandered in there and both the staff and the place are very nice. This fellow Gihan kindly showed me around. Here are some photos.
Before that tho, the deets, Colombo Courtyard is on Duplication Road just before Dharmapala Mawatha (Map). The phone number is +94 11 464 5333.
This is a Deluxe Room, where I of course am unlikely to stay, living in Colombo as I do. If you are visiting, however, this is one of the more central hotels, at least central to where people I know work and live. Here are some prices I got over the phone, these may change. I’d say check out the website, but I can’t find prices there.
Deluxe Double – $178
Super Deluxe – $209
Suite – $266
What may be more interesting to the local plebe is the restaurant, bar and rooftop. The rooftop at least looks quite cool, and is surprisingly expansive.
Anyways, that new thing on Duplication Road is a city hotel. It certainly looks beautiful at night. Seems like a nice place to stay if you’re visiting Colombo. Check them out on Facebook. They have better photos also.
