I have stayed as a guest at a fair few very good hotels in Sri Lanka but wanted to single out this one. Not only does it seem to be one of the rare hotels with some old world charm among the modern architecture prevalent in Colombo (see attached pic), but I thought the service was excellent. For example, we... More

This is by far the best hotel I have stayed in after 6 visits to Sri Lanka. Arrived at hotel at 2am. Got a warm welcome from the reception staff in spite of the unearthly hour. My room was huge and suitably lavishly furnished. Breakfast was part buffet part a la carte. Service was very attentive. Location was in a... More

Loved this hotel, room was huge and very nicely furnished and decorated. We arrived very early from our flight (about 4 hours before official check in) and this was no problem at all, we were shown straight to our room. Staff we're lovely and very helpful and the place is well managed. Breakfast was great, lots of traditional options and... More

Please note this isn't a normal review because i held my wedding here, but where possible i will refer only to the stay there. This boutique hotel is in the heart of Colombo, but feels like it is somewhere else. Be warned, although it is in a good location, it is not where the bulk of the other large hotels... More

Stayed 3 nights in this boutique hotel in Colombo during January 2014. Location is rather central. Rooms are large and nicely furnished. Food at the restaurante was very good not too expensive. Staff were always attentive and service was good.

Due to certain circumstances I am unable to give a comprehensive review of the hotel and it's facilities. What I can say though is that we got extraordinary assistance from the hotel staff and I wish to go on record to thank them. Shortly after we had booked in my wife fell ill and I had the hotel call out... More

This is a lovely hotel and the rooms are massive, but its clear that due to the imminent change in management the upkeep of the rooms has not be kept up to as high standard as you would expect from the rest the hotel.

If I were a writer looking for a place to write my next great novel, I would want to do it at the Park Street, sitting in its quiet, leafy courtyard by the pool. It's a wonderfully intimate place, well located in a central but quiet part of Colombo. The rooms are spacious (enormous), with unusual and striking decoration. An... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Park Street Hotel, Colombo an escape within the city which is situated in Colombo. Although it is in Colombo it IS an "escape" because once you come in, the city morphs in to the background. It is a 250 yr old colonial bungalow and adjoining stores/warehouses that occupy an extent of 2 acres of land in the heart of Colombo. is now the newly refurbished charming, friendly 12-room boutique hotel. The Park Street Hotel, conveniently located approx 30km from the airport, provides her guests a beautiful boutique accommodation in Colombo, as either a base from which to explore the island or a few days shopping or to absorb some distinct urban Sri Lankan culture at the beginning or end of their trip. Ideal for the knowledgeable world-traveler, and anyone wanting a more authentic Sri Lankan hotel experience other than the only other "Big/Chain Hotel" options in Colombo. ... more   less
