if you want dorms, never recommend. dirty, dark, too humid, expensive foods; everything is worst ever in my trip. too much overrated


It is very nice but not in the city centre. You actually need a car but I think it is very worthwhile. Very nice staff, service and breakfast.

The best part about the hotel was the staff. They were extremely helpful when we were planning our trips and very knowledgeable about locations and public transportation in and around Kandy. They even had a tuk tuk driver pick us up from the bus station our first day for free. The hotel itself was wonderful, very clean, and had nice facilities. The only drawbacks included a lack of wifi in the room, a small hot water tank, and some slippery floors after the rain. Overall, great stay!


We've booked that low cost room and got room in main building (no main season).Basic room with double bed and bathroom with hot water.The owner was nice,showed us how to cook curry and offered one day tuk-tuk rent around the city and to Pinewalla for 2000Rs.Finally the driver asked for 2500 :(the hotel has nice mountain view,but a bit far from the city centre Anyway good place for this value..

We had a budget room and it was excellent value for money. Not very centrally located, about a 20-25 minute walk or short tuk tuk ride. Atmosphere was ok.


We loved the terrace upstairs, view was nice, didn't like the smell in the room but hey, great value for money! And food was great!


Great atmosphere, very friendly and helpful staff, excellent restaurant (especially the rice and curry), quiet location, clean rooms. Best hotel we had in Sri Lanka.
