Great afordable backpackers place to stay

Close to city, clean room, quiet place
We stayed there for 2 nights. Very clean rooms close to Kandy. A little bit of a hike to the hotel but the view on Kandy is spectacular on way up.

budget hotel

friendly staffs, quiet sorroundings & great mountain view
Location was nice, it`s a moutain view & you`ll enjoy watching the monkeys outside the hotel climbing in the trees. You can see the lake down from the hotel also, City Centre & Temple of the Tooth of the Relic is very close to the lake. Good thing we met Nadish, the friendly Tuktuk driver who took us from the hotel going to some places like the Botanical Garden & anywhere we wanted to at a reasonable fare price.

Really nice and clean hotel

Big, clean rooms with really nice bathrooms. The owners were friendly as ever.
we stayed only one night in kandy and number eleven hotel. hotel is more like a little guesthouse with 3-4 rooms. the owners were really friendly and spoke good english. the room was beautiful and clean and big enough to spread around one's things. the biggest problem for us (our our driver) was to found the hotel. anybody, even in the next-door-hotels, did not seem to know where number eleven hotel was. the address is a bit misleadingly announced as with two different street names. but once you get there, it is easy to reach the city center with a tuktuk.

Bigg Value

Best views, clean, friendly, helpfulness of owner, nice rooms & pool
We would recommend this as the ultimate place to stay. The owner is well spoken and travelled the world. His knowledge of the surroundings is fantastic. He went out of his way to personally arrange that we we were taken at the best prices to all the attractions.Very clean, with a nice pool to relax after a busy day of sightseeimg. Best value for money, although the food is expensive. But with many eateries in town, not a problem - our advice is to stick to known brand eateries, since we didnt like Kandy's food in general - very different from ie Colombo. Good shopping at cheap prices. Kandy is a must to see, espesially going there by first class train ticket.

very basic, but clean with a really good shower!

The steps to get up to hotel, were no joke!
It was ok for what we paid. No internet, no food, but free tea and coffee - as much as you wanted. It did take a while for the host to understand that we would prefer to add our own sugar in beverages!

Lovely guest house in the hills overlooking Kandy

Close to city, but not too close
Lovely little guest house, hidden away in the hills overlooking the wonderful city of Kandy. Modern clean rooms with new bathrooms. Friendly staff who keep themselves to themselves but are there when you need them. Easy walk down the hill into Kandy, but you may need a tuk-tuk back up it as it is a steep climb. Do not pay any more than Rs500 from the city though as its only 2km tops
Hotel Feature Tip: When you get a tuk-tuk to the guest house, you will need to ask for Rajapihila Mawatha, as they don't know Keerthi Sri Rajasinghe Mawatha. When heading out from the city, you are immediately alongside Kandy lake. When you get to the junction, all tuk-tuk drivers will want to turn left as Rajapihila Mawatha has 2 ends near Kandy lake. This is the WRONG WAY. Insist they go right then almost immediate left up Rajapihila Mawatha, then right again just after the big Chinese restaurant, which will take you onto Keerthi Sri Rajasinghe Mawatha.

Given alternative hotel

Owner is reasonable
We were given to stay at the owner's other hotel as there was a major water pipe leakage problem at Number Eleven hotel. Instead of staying near the lake side, we were at the mountain side hotel. I must say, it was a lovely hotel with a fantastic view of Kandy from the mountain side. In fact, We think that this might be a better choice than if we were to stay at Number eleven hotel. The owner also offer us free rides down the hill and of course if he is not free to take us, arrange for us to get a cab. We had a very comfortable stay at this hotel. Will stay at this alternate hotel if we return to Kandy.
Travel tip: The whole of Kandy town is very clean and full of good food stalls and restaurant. Just pop in to a busy food stall and be surprised!
