    My wife and I really loved our stay at Hotel Shalini! We had a very clean room, with attached (very clean) bathroom. The shower is hot. The food served on the large (lovely atmosphere) upstairs balcony waas excellent. The manager (Cyril?) is a very helpful, efficient and friendly guy! Highly recommended when staying in Anuradhapura!

    We got a big quiet room with private bathroom. The staff helped us to come around an plan our trips. They also got a TukTuk to take you where you want to go and you can rent bicycles if needed. The town center ist in 5-10 min walked distance. They also offer breakfast which contains an egg, toast with jam and coffee. We enjoyed the stay and where really thankful for the help the offered.

    Nice place with great restaurant on the balcony-one of the best curries we've had! You can rent bikes from the host at a cheap price to explore the ancient city-too far to walk. Cleaningness was basic,but start very nice and helpful!

    The air con did not work properly and we were not told the price of food before ordering, only given two choices. Overpriced dinner and breakfast.

    The guy at reception wasn’t the most welcoming. Rats running around in the roof kept us up in the night. The rooms decor could really use some updating and the whole place could use a really good clean. Too over priced for what it is. I think they realised we were not happy because as we were leaving the guy at reception offered to pay the 150 rupees for our rickshaw to the bus station.

    The WiFi only worked in the reception and the hotel was not clean (the tablecloths and napkins at breakfast were still covered in dinner from the night before). The dinner was good but the breakfast was bad - literally just jam and bread. The location is fairly good (a short distance to the ruins) and the option to hire bikes for this journey was appreciated. The staff were also quite odd with us and seemed pretty rude.
