    There's not much to Dambulla so for a good price a clean room is perfect. Monkey's in the garden and a few geckos around too. Net over bed. Not the easiest to find

    OK hotel if you have to stay in Dambulla”
    Staff, clean, big rooms
    I wasn't all too impressed. The rooms were huge but very hot and didn't have aircon. Location is great for visiting Dambulla Cave Temple, however the hotel is next to a loud, busy and very dusty road. It's quiet in the rooms though as it's a bit off the road and hidden away. The rooms were very simple, quite spacious but pretty hot at times. I found the value for money not to be satisfying to be honest. The owners were friendly.

    Clean room, Good location
    We stayed for 4 nights avinka non ac room in dambulla. When we arrive, the host already prepare a cold drinks for us. The room And toilet is clean. Hot water provided for shower. As it is located in a garden, we would see animals like dogs,monkey and cats. Mosquito are common but mosquito net is attached in the room. We recommend an ac room if you don't want to live with mosquito as non ac room is hot if all Windows are closed.

    A hidden gem in Dambulla”
    Peace & tranquility, tip-top condition and price
    We're extremely pleased with our stay at Avinka. There are only 3 rooms, so it offers peace and tranquility and the place is still in tip top condition. Location-wise, it is away from the main accommodation area (close to bus stations, if not wrong) but it is located in between the Main Bus Station and Dambulla Cave temple. We can walk easily to both end and avoid taking public transports. Sangiri, the caretakers is very helpful and friendly. She looks after our needs as and when required, and also give up the privacy and space when we needed it. Her children are adorable too and give us opportunity interacting with local Sri Lankans. The only negative comment we have would be mosquitoes annoyance in the room. To be fair, we're not sure whether this is a common problem in other guesthouses in Dambulla (or Sri Lanka). Ceiling fan, mosquito net and electric mosquito repellent are provided in the room. We didn't use the mosquito net, ceiling fan and mosquito repellent worked well for us. There are also monkeys at the premise (and of course everywhere in Sri Lanka), which we find entertaining to a certain extent. Don't feed them and no unattended food outside the room of course.

    Excellent place to stay for local sightseeing.”
    Clean and very spacious room, great location (close to the main road, but still quiet).
    The location on google maps is incorrect - it shows location across CTB (bus park or something) while you in reality the hotel is located a bit more to the south, if walking down Kandy Road from the Market (on the left, can't miss it) you will need to pass gas station on the left, go another 200-300 meters and you'll see the sign. Hosts close the entrance gate at certain time in the evening, make sure you're aware of this and talk to the hosts in advance to avoid jumping over the fence being late :) The hotel is not far from the bus station (5-10 minutes walking), no need to get a tuk-tuk to get there. Local shops are in the walking distance as well. Generally, excellent price / quality combo.

    Wir waren nur zum Schlafen hier. Essen und Trinken gab es in der Umgebung oder selbst im Avinka nicht. Das Zimmer lag etwas im Hinterhof, dadurch war die stark befahrene Straße wenig zu Hören. Das Zimmer war sauber, mit Moskitonetz und Klimaanlage.

    Die Lage in unmittelbarer Nähe zum Tempel ist super - trotzdem ruhig. Auch zum Zentrum nur ein kurzer Weg.
    Das Personal war sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Das Zimmer war sauber und entsprach den Angaben. Allerdings waren die Kopfkissen und Handtücher nicht oder nicht mit Seife gewaschen. P. S. Wir hatten kein Frühstück oder sonstige Mahlzeiten und können daher das Essen nicht bewerten.

Die Besitzerin begrüßte uns sehr nett und bot uns eine frische, eiskalte Coca Cola an. Die Unterkunft an sich war sehr sauber und hell und geräumig. Sehr nett war auch die zum Zimmer dazugehörige Terrasse im Innenhof der Anlage.

    施設が新しく、清潔快適。オーナの女性が距離感をとりながらも、暖かく見守ってくれる感じ。相談すれば、知り合いのドライバーを手配したツアーも可能(ドライバーも信頼できる良い人だった もちろん価格交渉は自己責任で)だが、決して宿から売り込みなどはない。
