Very clean old hotel with a bit of a maze to find your room. Everybody was very helpful and the food was pretty good too! I loved the setting as I felt like I was back in the old days of SRI LANKA . We were there over New Years so the music was a bit loud. I'm not sure...

An old colonial hotel with beautiful bones. It could do with a spruce-up without damaging its charm. A place where you can easily transport yourself back in time. Service was good and the hotel was filled with families enjoying themselves. I do recommend staying here to feel the olde world charm, although do not expect a top-notch 21st Century experience....

Hotel Suisse is a nice property in the heart of Kandy. Staff is kind and accommodating. Rooms are spacious and beds and sheets are clean and comfortable. In its hay day this place must have been incredible with its grand colonial influences. It is certainly ready for a renovation but do not let that stop you from staying. It's clean,...

Lovely atmosphere, great service. We got the lake view and enjoyed every moment of the stay. The staff were very helpful and the breakfast included two types of cuisine to choose from, which was nice. Definitely recommended.

I was a five year old or so boy when I went swimming with Harrison Ford at the Hotel Suisse swimming pool. He was filming Temple of Doom and I was just being a kid. Not much has changed at this place, which is the beauty of it.

We loved our stay at the Hotel Suisse. Yes, the rooms were a bit out of date and the bathroom could definitely use renovating, but the whole atmosphere of the hotel was so beautiful and lovely. I'd definitely go back. We were at the hotel for New Years and they put on a fun party, though the band was pretty...

We stayed for 2 nights during our travels and from the moment we stepped into the hotel to when we left we only had positive things to say about the hotel and staff.
