This 4.5-star property is located in central Colombo and is 45 minutes away from Bandaranayake International Airport and just minutes to the buzzing day and nightlife of downtown Colombo. Villa Capers provides a five-bedroom private residence enclosed with high walls, guaranteeing guests complete privacy. Rooms are furnished with the owner’s passionate flavor of antiques and brought to life with a blend of a modern-vintage look. On the ground floor, spacious living take on a whole new meaning. Plush sofas and a 42” plasma TV with cable fill one corner, a private collection of antique betel cutters made from polished copper plates and wood set the scene in the other, and a large bespoke dining table for 10 is the gathering hub for morning coffee and a myriad of tea. The pièce de résistance is a 12-meter pool in the center of the residence - a perfect venue for cooling down. A classic pool table can be discovered on the first level as well. The outdoor terrace garden is the perfect setting for any private affair, and a secret hideaway sits atop the roof. This 4.5-star property is located in central Colombo and is 45 minutes away from Bandaranayake ... see more

26 Colombo closing

To be honest we can only say the staff were pleasant.
We listened to the reviews and unfortunately paid the price. The place was very dirty. The bedding had holes in the sheets. In the four days we were there no one changed bedding, towels, or cleaned the room. The only people we had any real contact with were the kitchen staff. That was before they let the cook go due to the place closing two days before we were due to leave.

Your Own Private Villa

Architecture, Style, Pool
It all depends what you are looking for, but if you would like to relax in a beautiful villa, with lots of lovely shared areas, this is it! The villa is located in a quiet neighborhood off the main drag. From the outside, it is unimposing, but inside, the Bawa-style architecture soars! My room opened onto the pool and had a small private outdoor sitting area too. I was greeted at check in with a nice banana smoothie. There was no dinner available, but they had delivery menus available. I opted to walk out to the main street and go to the supermarket (there is a shared fridge). Next to the supermarket, there is a stall where you can buy grilled chicken, roti, or fried rice. The breakfast is ample - fried eggs, toast, sausage and a lot of fresh fruit and excellent coffee. (Fortunately I'd bought milk at the super because I like milk in my coffee). There is a roof top patio, and I asked if they had a yoga mat, and they found a nice straw mat for me to use. The pool was lovely for laps. When I needed a tuk tuk, they called one, and when I had a late airport transfer they also arranged for that. It is a lovely place to stay!

Great house, fantastic staff, awesome top roof

Pool , staff, terrace, architecture
We were there for NYE and met some people from the Maldives at the hotel. We chatted and ended up spending the entire evening on the lovely top roof terrace, midnight swim. Great experience all together

Peaceful oasis in Colombo

Quiet, homely, quaint
We stayed here for a couple of nights on arrival into Sri Lanka, knowing we would be tired and to just regroup after lots of travels. It worked well as this, it was nice to have all the space around the lounge areas, the rooftop terrace and of course that unique central courtyard pool. We didn't have dinner, but breakfast was nice - we should have asked for Sri Lankan breakfast though I think as that looked lovely. Eggs, toast and fresh fruit prepared freshly for you when you get up. Our room opened up directly onto the pool, it had an outside open bathroom. Visited by a few bugs and the like but generally fine! Room had decent amount of storage, fan, A/C and beds were probably the most comfortable I have stayed in recently. Location wise, it's okay for the airport as on that side of the city. Was easy to pick up tuk tuks or taxis outside to get to train station and central areas. However, it's not the most central location. We didn't feel at all unsafe in the area, but didn't seem to be area too frequented by tourists. Plenty of shops, markets, there's a tea place opposite and a supermarket maybe a block down the road to stock up on water and other bits you might need. Overall, would recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful stay in the city. Thanks and enjoy!

Awesome place with awesome service

Amazing staff, awesome house and relaxing stay
Arrived late to Colombo, but was kindly greeted at the door by the proprietor of No. 26 Colombo...who was still able to accomodate us (thank you!) despite me making a mistake in my booking (accidentally booked for previous night). The house was awesome and chic, and was just the relaxing atmosphere (ie satellite tv, swimming pool, pool table, rooftop terrace, etc.) needed after 2 weeks traveling. Although I only spent one evening, would not waste my time sifting through accommodations on Agoda for my next visit to Colombo because I would undoubtedly come back to No. 26 Colombo.

Fantastic stay

Staff friendliness and assistance, peacefulness and lovely property
We loved our stay at 26 Colombo. The manager was so helpful to us, arranging tuk tuks, a restaurant and airport transfer. They prepared a special pancake breakfast for my toddler which she loved. Would really recommend it as a really peaceful and special place to stay in Colombo.

Relaxing place for tourists

Spacious room, helpful staff and relaxing place
It was great place. As a business traveler though, I needed a High Speed internet connection and a few more amenities like a desk and other things to make it easy for me to work. From that perspective, it was a bit more expensive for the facilities. Otherwise, for a western tourist looking for clean, relaxing place, this is a great place.
