Universal plugs in the walls for electricity. Comfy bed with no mosquitoes. Slightly noisy being on the main street, so bring earplugs if... More

It was an amazing hotel to stay at. The staff was very helpful with information, taking care of you and very polite! The rooms were clean and very nice looking. There was everything you needed. Wifi was really fast! Breakfast only had limited options but i was tasty! And the little roof garden was so cute.

I stayed here for 1 night with my Mum while exploring Kandy. It's a basic, small room which meets all the requirements such as it was clean, good hot shower, near the attractions and the main streets for food.

You absolutely have to stay here if you ever plan to stay in Kandy. The loveliest and most helpful host. They ensure you will feel like home and make a good impression of Sri Lankan hospitality. Also, please dont tick off the breakfast option because it's one of the best part about staying with them.

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Located only a 10 minutes walk from the center, it was quiet, clean, and comfortable. The staff were very friendly, assisting us with any of our requests and offering suggestions to our questions about shopping and eating. The room, albeit small, totally suited our needs. We appreciated how comfortable the bed and... More
