Very nice and small Boutique hotel in the middle of the hectic Colombo. Huge and beautiful rooms. Delicious food in the own small restaurant. Also small pool and bar available. Only 11 rooms but very spacious.

A peaceful and beautifully kept residence. An oasis in the heart of the bustling Colombo. The service was attentive and the food excellent. Clean and beautifully appointed rooms in a grand old home. Highly recommend.

About
Description
Nestled between leafy Park Street and the lakeside temple of Gangarama, one of Colombo's principal Buddhist shrines, Residence is a unique boutique hotel in the heart of Sri Lanka's capital city. Built in the More nineteenth century by Sheikh Salehboy Moosajee, it is one of the few remaining buildings of its kind in Colombo. Originally a family home, the house was designed to host receptions and entertainment on a grand scale, with great halls, expansive gardens and stables for visitors' carriage-horses. Today, Residence is a luxurious eleven-suite city hotel owned and managed by Uga Escapes. Its design is glamorous, contemporary and comfortable, but recalls the rich history of the building and the surrounding area. With a large garden, swimming pool, gym, bar and 'great room', Residence offers plenty of spaces to meet, relax or celebrate. Less
