I stayed for one night and was sorely disappointed! The lobby is like a railway station, as is frequented by many locals and non hotel guests. Infact the lobby level outlets like the Kings Bar etc have mostly non hotel guests and it feels crowded, noisy and disorienting to be there. For a 150 dollars what you get is way below the mark, say compared to any other hotel for 25 to 50 dollars more!! I was apparently upgraded from a superior to a premium room, so shudder to think how small the superi... Read more

Everything about this hotel is just right (for me:)... the size, the decor, the bathroom especially (although it's made more for tall people!) and the most thoughtful sewing-kit ever! The breakfast and dinner buffet spreads are really good. It's also just across from the Dutch Hospital, which makes it an ideal place for a relaxing city mini-break.

We had a one-night stay at this hotel, so I cannot say much about it. Compared to other properties of the like, it was clean and modern. It does not offer very nice view or anything specific in the room. It is more suitable for business trips rather than leisure trips. The restaurant beside the pool is a pleasant place and the variety of food for breakfast is satisfying.

Sri Lanka Colombo is full of excellent restaurants, offering different cuisines and serving different budgets. But where can you get excellence and luxury at a reasonable price? The Kingsbury PLC is one such place. I have not stayed there but I have read the reviews. During our last stay in Sri Lanka we did visit the Chinese restaurant at the Kingsbury. The food was excellent, the service great, and the bill? There were six of us, four adults and two teenagers. We had cocktails and mock tails, e... Read more

Many of these old buildings are being restored so it should be even better in a few years time.

We recently stayed for 2 nights at Kingsbury colombo. It is a good and comfortable hotel located in the heart of the city. The rooms are a bit small but they are very comfortable. The breakfast has a huge spread offering options to all sorts of customers. The sky bar is a must visit. However, there is a construction site right across the road, which disrupts the view from your room and even the swimming pool. That was a bummer but it's nothing that the hotel can control.
