We were very happy with our choice, location is perfect and rooms were comfortable. It has quite a bit of traffic noise so take some earplugs if that would bother you. One tip is don't trust the door man to get you a good price for a tuk tuk. He advised it was double the price!!

This was truly a fantastic experience. Original colonial style hotel, preserving the old style, but fully modern. The rooms are very British, old-fashioned and a bit run-Down (especially the plumbing). But the atmosphere fully makes up for this. Very good restaurant, both for dinner and breakfast. Wonderful bar for a quiet pre-dinner drink. Very central in Kandy.

In a tour of Sri Lanka we used Queen's Hotel for a short two days stay in Kandy and we couldn't be more happy with our choice. The location is just perfect, as you have the main attractions - the lake and the temple - right across the street. The colorful local market - with probably the best prices for... More

If you want to check this place out, do yourself a favor and go into the lobby, or have a drink at the bar. Don't bother staying. It took about 5 minutes to walk up three flights of stairs to my room, which did not have wifi. There was a bathtub that required a 1-meter step up to get into,... More

I had an overall pleasant stay with my family at Queens hotel. The best part is the location - near hustle and bustle - shopping and KFC at walking distance. Rooms are very comfortable. i can recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to be in city center with all the activities around.

Me and my wife stayed at Queens hotel for one night on our round trip to Sri Lanka i feb. 2014. The good thing is that the hotel has a very cetral location in Kandy. But the hotel certaly has seen better days. The sevice war very very slow, the rooms not so good. Anoteher nice thing is the swimingpool.

We stayed here for a night, when we got into Kandy. The good: It's just next to the Sacred Tooth Relic Temple- you just walk across the road. It faces the beautiful Kandy river. Breakfast was fantastic! The bad: The rooms are old, and the beds are way too soft. Service is a bit slow, because they seem understaffed. Lift... More
