The Galle Face Hotel

Colonial buildings in Colombo

The Galle Face Hotel started out as a Dutch villa called Galle Face House, that had been a meeting place for gentlemen of the colonial era.
That was until four British entrepreneurs decided to use it to start a hotel here. The Galle Face Hotel originally opened in 1864, borrowing its name from the charming expanse of ground known as the Galle Face Green, which stretches for a kilometer by the side of the hotel, along the coast, where, in Victorian times, it was a popular place to take a walk in the sea air, or a ride in a horse-drawn carriage.
