"We had wonderful time at Swiss Residence Kandy. Peaceful place and easy access to the hotel and very short distance to Kandy city. The parking is good and security guards are helpful to park vehicles. Welcoming is good with welcome drink. The room quality is excellent and way better than we expected. Doorbell and door access panel of hotel room is modern and love the way they arranged bathroom and toilet separately. Bathroom well cleaned, and quality bathware use. The hotel staff professional and helpful. The view we get from the hotel was excellent. Day time, and night time both were amazing. The room quality, bed, air conditioning unit all were perfect. We only had the breakfast from hotel and really enjoyed the meal, buffet included all craving food options including English breakfast and Sri Lanka meals. The hotel swimming pool is well maintained and clean, the place that pool located also great. At last this is underrated but one of the best hotels in Kandy to me. Only concern you should remember, there is sudden steep hill while accessing to the hotel and better you put sport mode/ power mode of your vehicle when you near hotel."

"I stayed at the Queen's hotel in Kandy in July 2012 before the Perahela Festival. The hotel is an old colonial heritage, with quite charming old-school decorations. Rooms are old but very clean and carefully tended. The service is friendly. The restaurant provides local as well as international cuisine at a value price. The location is very convenient for Kandy tour, just in the north western end of the Kandy lake. Besides there is also a shop providing high quality Sri Lankan souvenirs and tea (you have to get out of the gate and turn right, 50m). One of the drawbacks is guests might be waken up by the 6am temple chanting by the loudspeaker on the road around the lake."

"New hotel, very clean, centrally located in Kandy. Staff was very helpful and attentive. Hotel is located in the centre of Kandy, but we didn't have any problems with noise from the streets or anything like that. Restaurant was very good, probably the best food that we had during our three weeks trip to Sri Lanka, menu prices were also lower than in the ones in Hikkaduwa or Mirissa.. Overall - good base for staying in Kandy and exploring this city and surroundings."

"I visited Sri Lanka for a short period, after staying in Amaya for one day, decided to stay longer, seeing the excellent service they provided. Staff was very friendly, I felt like home. Food was exceptional with a variety of choices. Walking tracks around the mountain leading to the top of Hantana was an excellent experience with picturesque views. Inside the hotel with its grandiose ancient looks and spaciousness surrounded by lush green forest creating a calm peaceful environment for anyone who would know how to enjoy the beauty of nature. Best hotel in Kandy for Kandyan experience. "

"Stayed at this Kandy City Hotel for 1 night during a recent holiday trip to Sri Lanka. It is a new hotel and has just been in operations for a few days when we stayed there. Everything is still new and even our room had a fresh smell of paint when we first entered it. Locationwise, it is located at the heart of Kandy City, so it offers close proximity to the lake, the Tooth Relic Temple, Kandy City Center mall, as well as restaurants and supermarkets. I think location is the best thing about this hotel. Breakfast was also very tasty and well prepared, for which we greatly appreciated. In general, accomodation in Sri Lanka is expensive if we compare it with the rest of Asian countries. So, at the rate we were given, I really have nothing serious to complain about this hotel. If I need to mention 1 flaw, I think the bathroom in the room is too small, while it is obvious that the room itself still has a lot of unused space. So, I was wondering why they didn't make the bathroom a little bit bigger than it is now. Also, the drain stinks badly so I think the hotel needs to do something about it immediately. "

"It is a typical four-star hotel, big and popular with tour groups. The service is good, as is the breakfast and dinner buffet (catering for western and sri lankan tastes). The WLAN is shaky (the hotel claims that it's better than in most places in Sri Lanka. Which doesn't make it less shaky). We found the staff professional and friendly, the lower in the hierarchy the friendlier. Location is good, in that one can walk to the city center and is fairly quiet. But be aware that walking takes 20 minutes. Tuk-tuks are neither faster nor more comfortable because traffic in Kandy is horrible. Our large room was on the fifth floor and had a balcony with a view over the lake. On several days, we had no warm water in the morning. Apparently too many people had showered before us - no such problems in the afternoon or evening."

More about Kandy

Centrally located in the middle of Sri Lanka, and enjoying a place on the UNESCO World Heritage List, Kandy is an exciting city with plenty of cultural charm and historical significance.

The city is easily accessible by bus or train, so international travelers arriving at Bandaranaike International Airport can arrive in Kandy via taxi, bus, or rail. Once in Kandy, travelers will not be short of things to do or places to see.

As the home of the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic, Kandy hosts many people who visit as tourists or religious pilgrims. The temple is believed to be one of the most holy places for those in the Buddhist faith as it houses a tooth relic from the Buddha. There are many hotels near the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic, making it convenient for travelers to get to the temple relatively easily. The entire city is easily navigated by walking or using the city bus.

The Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage is a favorite among most who visit Sri Lanka, but even more so among those traveling with children. There are many elephants that roam around the grounds, and watching them eat or splash water around can provide hours of entertainment. Hotels around the elephant orphanage are located near the Knuckles Mountain Range, for a convenient access into the area as well as seeing the surrounding sites.
