A couple showed up the day after me, and they only paided half of the price i was charged through hostelworld. Also when leaving, the hotel wanted to arrange a tuk-tuk, which was overpriced. He asked 1200 rupees and I went with another who only charged 600 for the same distance.


We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Majestic. We went there again because I had had a great experience staying there three years ago. This time, since it was off-season, the owners were able to take care of us 24/7, and Uncle even drove us himself in his van to see the Dambulla Caves three hours away. The rooms were clean, and well furnished with breathtaking views of Kandy town. It's also a short 15 minute walk to Kandy Lake and the tooth temple.

Owners couldn't have been more helpful Gave me advice on best places to visit. Rooms are basic but clean. View from rooftop restaurant amazing!


This is a good place to stay if you want to be close to town and see the cultural center. The owners are very nice and helpful. The man who owns the place is also the cook/ chef and his food is absolutely yummy! He gives cooking classes too if you are interested. There are many rooms in the hotel and the hotel is very clean and basic. Going to the lake from there is about 100 LKR and to the bus station is 250 LKR. Be aware the rickshaw drivers are all scumbags and try to cheat you.


The owners are fantastic and made us feel very welcome! We enjoyed an amazing home cooked curry on the roof terrace however as there were not many people in the hotel there was no ambience or other diners. The food was amazing but service a bit lacking. Location is a little bit away from anything so tuk tuk required if you want to head out at night for a drink or anything. Room was clean and basic.


This was one of my greatest Sri Lankan experiences, I say "experience" because it's not just a hostel! It's not in the city centre which was great but still very easy to reach. Instead of being waken up by the cars, you wake up with the sound of birds, fresh air and a magnificent view. The staff was friendly and helpful. The owners of the place are a very lovely couple, we've heard so many great stories and even learned how to make curry. Great place, definitely stay there when in Kandy :)
