As the oldest building in the area, Dutch Hospital Shopping Precinct offers historical colonial architecture in addition to its fine shops and restaurants. Originally used as a hospital by the Dutch in the 17th century, the attraction was later transformed into a shopping and dining precinct. Pick up souvenirs, such as clothing, jewelry, handicrafts, and artworks, or find outside seating where you can sip wine and watch passersby. Wander around the two large courtyards and keep an eye out for street musicians, theater performances, and art exhibitions, too.

Dutch Hospital Shopping Precinct Reviews
그냥 저냥 볼만은 한데요, 굳이 찾아갈 필요는 없는것 같아요. 딜마 티 라운지 있는데 다른데도 있구요. 베어풋도 본점이 더 물건이 많아요. 식당은 스리랑카 물가 비해서 굉장히 비싼 편이구요. 물론 시간이 없다면 여기서 관광하는게 좋긴해요. 대표적인건 다 모여 있거든요. more »It's just a good place to stay. There's a dilma tea lounge and there's no other place to stay. There are more bearfoot, too. The food was very good. Of course, if you don't have time, it's a good place to visit. There's a lot of things that's representative.

Shops sparse, only the Odel Luv offers good and tasteful souvenirs.
Awesome ambience and aura. The place remains live even at 1 am in the morning/night. The area is spread with lots of pubs and shopping area and is a delight to be at. The nearby big hotels like Hilton, Grand Oriental Hotel and so on have lots of tourists flooding into the area and that just adds to the overall charm of the place. The Dutch hospital serves more as a landmark for these night area in my opinion.
Excellent place to chill. Lot of options to explore my favourite being 'Next innings'. It gives a very good vibe. It also has the famous Ministry of Crabs. You can chill in any of the lounges they have or just roam around during the evening. We liked it so much on our visit to Colombo that we came here everyday during our stay.
