    Raj revisited

    A beautiful hotel, allowing the clock to be set back 100 years. If this is what you are looking for book now! But you have to take the pros with the cons. It was originally built in the 1860's, lovely large rooms with beautiful wooden floors, but of course not very soundproof. And a pervading smell of damp.Site seeing around Colombo is easy with tuk tuks waiting just outside. Breakfast and spa top rate.

    Top Marks.

    It is probably the best hotel I’ve stayed in. I loved the perfect mix of old world ambiance, great staff, great food and great location, plus well priced for what you’re getting. Top marks.
