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 Sevana City Hotel is located in the heart of the Kandy. Many places are accessible. Although we didn't eat here but they serve variety of foods. 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...

Sevana is a good place to be. It has about 15rooms, Ac non Ac as u like. The rooms are big and clean, the breakfast is excellent :-). Superfriendly Staff. The only point is that due to the open architecture, its a bit noisy (chinese guests talking very loud at reception, staff cleaning cuttlery at 5am...) Location is good, close...

There are such a large amount of places to choose from in Kandy & I would advise you to stay clear of here. We booked based on the great reviews but our experience couldn't have been more different. Firstly, the bathroom was dirty with mouldy walls. The wifi didn't work, at all! The location is terrible. We booked a double...

My husband and I stayed in one of the cheapest rooms (double, fan only), it was spacious, clean with comfortable beds and a good (and hot) shower. The room did have a musty smell to it, it would have been nice to have the windows open but there was no mosquito nets. Breakfast was great - fresh fruit, eggs, toast...

The hotel is well situated being a reasonable walk from the city centre, the Temple of the Tooth and Kandy Lake. The staff are all very friendly and the breakfast was a good size - including...
