Excellent hotel with a great central location. There are many hotels up in the hills which may have better views but this hotel is in a great location, the main sites and restaurants are all in walking distance.

Our room (300?) had a window onto another wall with instructions not to leave the windows open as monkeys would get in. No mosquito netting on open bathroom window. The room was horribly damp (patches on walls and ceiling). The beds were wet and...

This hotel is based in a central location in Kandy! Nice and clean rooms, hot shower, great breakfast and extremely friendly and helpful staff. Walking distance to the temple of the tooth and other main attractions. We definitely recommend this place!

Our room was not very nice because there was mould on the walls everywhere, no daylight and wet beds. Next time i would go in a more expensive hotel because these wasn't nice at all. I can not understand why this hotel is rated so high at tripadvisor.

The rooms are very basic, even a bottle of water is not included in the room rate. They provide laundry and pressing facilities, but they charge for it. They do housekeeping but every...
