We stayed three nights at the Villa 49. They had also arranged pick-up at the airport in Colombo. Everything worked perfectly, the driver was already waiting for us when we arrived and drove us safely to Kandy. He was very, very friendly, provided information and recommendations, so that we also booked a tour with him the next day, which was...

Only spent one night at Villa 49 but it was highly enjoyable! Very comfortable and clean rooms set among peaceful surrounds. Top notch service from the manager, hard to even find in many 5 star resorts. Highly recommended.

Villa 49 is a delightful place to stay. It is located in a quiet street not far from the lake and within walking distance of the town. The staff are kind, friendly and helpful, and happy to provide advice on anything you might think to ask about the town and the surrounding points of interest. Our room was spacious and...

My husband and I stayed here for two nights and had a lovely stay. The staff are welcoming and friendly; especially Asanka who ensured we were happy and comfortable throughout our stay. The room was large with a beautiful view and was spotless. The breakfast was good but the toast was cold before the margarine and jams arrived! They apologised...

This was hands down the best hotel experience I've had traveling abroad. Everyone was extremely kind and accommodating, they offered us a free ride from the train station, and the driver they worked with (Praboda) was looking out for us from the moment we got into the city. For four days it felt like coming home to escape heat and...

We stayed at Villa 49 for 3 nights during the Esala Perahera festival. The staff really make you feel at home and are so helpful with everything. Our 4 year old son absolutely loved staying here, and had lots of fun playing with the cook's granddaughter. He cried when we had to leave! They serve continental and Sri Lankan breakfast,...

Perfect for one night stop in Kandy. Within walking distance of central Kandy and Temple of the Tooth. Staff were passionate and enthusiastic. Room was spacious and fairly well appointed although en suite in family room was tiny. Breakfast was excellent especially the local option and the home made jams.

Hotel location is very central in Kandy, rooms are big, staff is very very charming. Especially the owner: we talk togethere a long time about Sri Lanka and its culture. Warmly recommend this stay! They offer free pickup from the train station. They helped us prepare our lunch with our fruits from the market on the day of departure.

I spent only a night at Villa 49 but Shanani the hostess is great. It began even before I arrived there, just via her email responses I got a good vibe. She even arranged for her driver, Praboda, to pick me up from the train station free of charge. Her staff are very nice too. The place is close to...

I have spent 5 days at Villa 49 in Kandy because it is a central place from where I could make my excursions. Villa 49 is a little place but the room was big, with a big bathroom, and airconditioned . It was very clean. The staff was very nice and warmhearted, always with a smile in their face. The...
