January 17 marked one month since the reopening of the boutique hotel Talo Urban (34 De Vos Ave, Colombo 04) in the Bambalapitiya neighborhood of Colombo.

The hotel opened in 2018. It redesigned its lounge in 2020, revamped other areas and celebrated the grand opening late last year. The property is located near tourist attractions such as Miraguiriya Beach, Majestic City Mall, art galleries, and Independence Square.

There are 14 guest rooms in total. All rooms are equipped with flat-screen TVs, Wi-Fi, refrigerators, and work desks. In addition to free private parking, the hotel has a business center and The Fox Den, a BYOB lounge suitable for meetings.

Hotel guests and the general public can also enjoy meals and drinks at the De Vos Café, which can accommodate approximately 50 people, including terrace seating. The menu features Asian and European dishes such as biryani, Thai red curry, mixed grill, and light meals, such as sandwiches and pizza. In conjunction with the hotel reopening, a new drive-through BBQ service (from 6:00 p.m.) has been introduced, allowing customers to receive freshly grilled meat and burgers without getting out of their cars.
