  • It is being rennovated and would be open again 6 months later. One of the staff let me in though, but then he demanded tips for explaining something I have already known.....
  • Wonderful place. You can feel Dutch
  • Very badly maintained, therfore very expensive for what you get. Employees don't know much too and rather walk away than answer a question.
  • Excellent Place to visit for know about Dutch period of Sri lanka
  • I can't wait till they do the proposed renovations.. the place is beautiful.. but no one takes care of the place..

Where to stay in Colombo

Despite its relatively low cost of living, Colombo accommodations tend to be fairly pricey. Close to the sea and the lake, as well as near the city's parks and the plazas, hotels come in the form of old colonial buildings and ultra-modern high rises, with a decent selection of each to choose from. Budget-conscious travelers should pay attention to the short rental options in the town's more residential areas, or look for the smattering of simple, but serviceable options close to the main train stations, and on the side streets set back from the waterfront.
