This is not a tourist attraction. It is an old building that may have been used as a hospital which has been completely modernised into an average shopping mall. It is very small and the shops are not special

This is an old hospital complex renovated with great taste. The famous Ministry of Crab is located in the same venue. There is nothing much as far as shopping is concerned. Spa Ceylon has an outlet there with a spa as well. Also Nature's Secret has a beauty salon with Facials, Pedicure and manicure facilities. Good hangout place.

The Old Dutch Hospital retains its original architecture but today it is a "happening place" with trendy restaurants and cafes, a Tea Room and shops. A small area and easy to negotiate as also located centrally in the Colombo Fort area. We were there earlier this afternoon for lunch at Ministry of Crab.

A centrally located premises, on passing by we noticed shops , we thought it's a hospital but after going inside the premises we found nicely laid shops of food, jewellery, local arts & craft etc. The central court yard has place to sit and restaurant serve food and liquor there. Located exactly opposite World Trade Center..

To turn around what was such a messy place to a grand shopping mall & excellent restaurants was a great idea. Now very popular in the evening. Also with spa's. Easily accessible ♿
