    I was very happy, reasonable price, big space, great wifi, laundry services, and delicious dinner at a great rate. Extra credit to both Kanthi, and Mapa for making the stay extra nice with their kindness, and helpfulness, plus that food I already mentioned

    Hello Gustav I guess your flight will land in Colombo by 9pm. So you will be out of the airport by 10pm. Colombo to Kandy may take upto 4 hours by road. I suggest you stay the night in Colombo:)
