Hotel Suisse
Ranked #13 of 56 Hotels in Kandy
Reviewed 14 August 2012

Very simply put do no stay here.

The list is endless.

Dirty room below ground level. Ants in room.

Food not hot enough to be safe to eat.
Apparently I need 200 characters so have the whole list

Room below ground. No view. Wardrobe if you can call it that no hangers. Windows do not fit so insects constantly in room.

Dinner and breakfast are buffet style, the food is almost cold and unsafe to eat.
The paint is coming off the bath when I use it.

Have stayed in SriLanka 7 tomes in the last six years. This is the first hotel I will not go back to.

Do not stay here.

Room Tip: Stay else where

Hotel Suisse is located along Kandy lake, on the opposite side of the lake from Sri Daladhamaligawa, hence it is located away from the busy town centre but still lies within walking distance to the sights. Staff are very friendly, food was good and the rooms were spotless, large and well-decorated and renovated. Great place to stay for a few nights in Kandy.

Not sure if all the rooms are the same, but the room we stayed in was stunning. Beautifully set up with a nice colonial touch, felt very homely. The balcony was spacious and ideal to have a cup of tea in the evening, with a lovely view of the Kandy lake.

There were a few minor glitches in the bathroom, such as a leaking bathtub. The food was average. But the service was pretty good. The staff friendly and very helpful.

Room Tip: Make sure to get a room with a balcony. I noticed that certain rooms did not have balconies

This is a very nice hotel. Its located near the lake nearby the tooth tempel. Its an old collonial hotel. The people who works here are very friendly! They have an incredible nice buffet room. Its a ball room just like in the movies :-) The rooms are simply but nice and clean. We will go back for sure!

We stayed at Suisse Hotel from 26th to 29th June 2012. The most beautiful view in most important historical town of kandy in Sri Lanka is coupled with the charm environment of the old hotel. We were allocated with a refurbished very large room with very large bathroom with all good amineties. Bed room is very clean, with colonial type furniture. you can relax in the room since its hight is fantastic. Bed linen and bath towels are spotles clean. Restaurant has no much choice of meals but good enough for a short stay. still it is possible to order anything you like out of the menu.
Very big swimming pool facing kandy lake, a bar with good choice of beverages, a nice flowery garden, billiard table very colonial type, are some of plus points compared to simmiler in the region. I got good value for money. Since they dont have a safe box in room, better you handover the valuables to front desk.
If you are luckey, you will be able to see a traditional sri lankan wedding since Suisse is very famous in Kandy for wedding receptions.Also you better not to try the Spa which is complete dissapointment.

Room Tip: Always ask a refurbished room.

We must have got an upgrade because our room was super spacious and it was connected to a private lounge or a relaxation room. The furnitures in the room are quite old, very colonial, edges are chipped but the bed was lovely, we had a good sleep. We stayed only a night and wished we stayed longer.

Breakfast was not that impressive but was sufficient enough to enjoy. Breakfast hall looks as colonial as the rooms are.

Would come back and stay the next time we are in Kandy.
