"The room was fine for a basic room. It was about a 20 minute walk from the main Kandy attractions. The main guy working there was a bit weird and made me uncomfortable. When we arrived he was really pushy about getting us to go on their tour even after we told him we already had one organised. He also made a disapproving comment about my boyfriend and I not being married. I understand that's a cultural difference but I'm a paying guest and don't care for your opinion on my marital status! The other staff were nice but seemed almost afraid to use their initiative incase they did something wrong. "

"The hotel stuff are friendly. The boss is friendly and helpful too. He helped me to amend my bookings accordingly as i had booked more days than i required initially. He also revised my booking cost accordingly. The breakfast provided by the hotel is very generous, based on the amount we paid for. It is really value for money. The hotel has lift which is ideal for elderly who has problem climbing stairs. The location of the hotel is good too as it is near Kandy city area. "

"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. "

"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."

"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."

"Didnt have high expectations of this hotel. Boy is this place underrated. Safe to say the best hotel we stayed at in Sri Lanka. Staff were super friendly and accommodating, the manager was really great to speak to, enthusiastic about great service so he commands his staff around and gets stuck in himself. Gave us some great cooking tips too! Pool is smallish but really clean. We did a tour of Kandy with a guy the hotel has used for years. We saw some great sights and were left to decide what we did and didnt do. We even paid him twice the amount we should have by accident and he came back to give us the money. Unreal. Kandy is a noisy, busy place so to stay 5 mins from the lake is well advised. Unless you want to sleep with cars honking and people shouting all night. stay here."

"The family and staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating. The views were awesome - I recommend trying to get a room with balcony although there is one that is for general use. Very large delicious breakfasts. A ride to the residence from town, can cost around 1000 Rs, but it's definitely worth it to be away from Kandy's hustle bustle. "
