Attended a conference during last week. Atmosphere was great. Service at the entrance valet parking was very good. Food is fine. Stewards were well trained and attention for the detailed as well. Overall good experience.
I came here two years ago and couldnt fault the place, my return trip has been unfortunately a little disappointing
First of all The Good, staff are great and cannot do enough for you, always smiley, going the extra mile and always willing to please,...More
Great hotel, food, pool, gym etc.
Roof top Bar which is a great way to round off an evening.
City centre location with limited ammenities in the local area.
Used as a short stop base to watch Cricket in the city.

Greetings from The Kingsbury
Thank you for your high rating . Your kind review is greatly appreciated and we hope your experience at the Kingsbury, will bring you back for a another unforgettable stay, soon.
The gentlemen on check in were very friendly and professional though:
The hotel is an old shabby building.
Very small room, dirty carpet in the room, worn-out bed, musty smell.
Breakfast buffet, huge choice but low quality.
Service at breakfast slow and not attentive.
Excellent location and nice view from the rooms. Friendly and professional staff. Very satisfied with my stay. I would strongly recommend this hotel. Among the best (top 3) hotels in Colombo. Restaurants are excellent.More

Hi there is no beach side area in Colombo City. Nothing where you can typically go the the beach. There are a few hotels with a bit of beach, like the Galle Face Hotel, but it's literally a corner. Mount Lavinia Hotel also... More
Hi there is no beach side area in Colombo City. Nothing where you can typically go the the beach. There are a few hotels with a bit of beach, like the Galle Face Hotel, but it's literally a corner. Mount Lavinia Hotel also does, but Colombo is more of the city feel. If you're staying at
The Kingsbury you will be near to the Old Dutch Hospital Shopping complex which is ok for shopping but not great. They have a few interesting shops like Barefoot and LuvSL for Sri Lankan items and restaurants. The Odel Department Store is one of the best places for shopping in Colombo. Also the Independence Arcade Mall. If you google those two you'll get an idea. They have international and local brands. Other nice shops are scattered over the city with a few malls that are pathetic. To be honest, Sri Lanka is no great shopping experience like Thailand and Malaysia. But within the island the above is where you can shop and also Galle Fort in Galle (South). Hope this helps!
