    I staid at room 804 for 2 days ( 2019/5/22-23) 1. After the suicide bombing incident the pool has been damaged and it’s under construction. There was no notification about that. 2. They haven’t taken security seriously even after the recent bombing incident.

    Kingsbury Hotel was one of the hotels that was affected by the recent Easter bombings in Sri Lanka. However on our visit to this splendid hotel during the month of May 2019, we did not see any effects of these attacks. The hotel functioned smoothly and we did not at any time during our stay feel either worried or troubled. There was a scanner at the front entrance and the staff was extremely professional in scanning our belongings to ensure the safety of the residents. As to the Hotel, it is located in the heart of the city, but with a beach view and is luxurious. We stayed on the 9th floor, which floor had a separate lounge for either relaxing or business activities The staff in the hotel are very friendly and helpful. The swimming pool is under maintenance and as such we did not use the pool, but was offered the use of the Hilton Pool We have stayed at other hotels in Colombo, this being the first time at Kingsbury and would definitely visit this hotel in our next visit and highly recommend it

    I was the 1st guest checked in after the 4/21 Sri Lanka blasts. There have been some damage to the hotel but not so seriously and they are trying to remodeling it. I wish them well and recover very soon. Kingsbury Strong!
