An elegant colonial hotel situated right on the edge of the sea in Colombo. At the present it is being refurbished so only the more modern part of the hotel was open. It is still full of history with portraits of those who have stayed there over the years. It still retains that colonial atmosphere with white uniformed door men... More

Wpace e spent 4 nights at the Hempell Gallery Rooms in galle Face Court & loved it. The room was absolutely huge as was the attached bathroom.

The rooms are set inside an art gallery - how often can you say that you've stayed at an art gallery. They are actually owned by Anouska Hempel (London-based interior designer and hotelier) and it...

The owners are very friendly expats who have lived in Colombo for some time now. Being a home it sometimes feels like you are getting in the way at times. Overall... More

Massive room and bathroom, beautifully decorated with lots of artwork on the walls. Very quiet and great location. Only concern was our door didn't have a lock on it so although we had met the host, we didn't know the occupants of the other room and there was nowhere to store our valuables safely. Having no lock also meant that... More

This place is in the centre of Colombo - but it's so quiet in the rooms. Excellent value for money. They allowed us to check in the 4AM!!!!due to our early flight arrival time. Secure - security on the door of apartment block and house keeper is so kind and helpful. Spacious room, very clean, air conditioned. A must stay... More
