Once the home of an antique collector and his wife, Urban Castle is a charming hotel that pays tribute to antiques in all its forms. Situated in Pilimathalawe, 30 minutes west of the historic city of Kandy, the hotel serves as a great budget option for those with a taste for minimalism with an artistic flavour.
Behind an unprepossessing exterior lies an imaginative world. The doors to Urban Castle open on to a well-maintained garden, infinity-edged pool and a three-storey building which consist of six rooms. A giant antique wooden horse welcomes guests to the living area which is engagingly decorated with an assortment of brass and wooden antiques.
The six rooms are categorised into 4 Urban Relax rooms and 2 Urban Romance rooms spread across two floors.
