We just stayed at "Queen's hotel" for two nights in April 2010. I believe this hotel is the most classic hotel in Kandy, dating back to the early 1900's with huge hallways, dining rooms and classy furniture. We booked a double room which was featuring a new aircon and a view to the nice blue pool in the back. Parking was behind the hotel and for free which was a nice feature. After some bargaining we got the room for Rps. 5.000,-- per night / room including breakfast...not a bad deal. In our opinion just the bathroom was in need of a refurbishment since it was quite filthy, a bit smelly and dark. All in all we would still stay there again, since this is "the" way to stay in Kandy.
