Buddhist Temple and Monastery ”
Nice monks, Close to Ella, Beautiful views
When we were searching for a hotel, we noticed that some mentioned that this guesthouse is "near a monastery". This is an understatement. It isn't near a monastery, it is a monastery. When we arrived in Ella, we declined the 350 rupees tuk-tuks because 2 km from the train station isn't far. What we didn't realize was that the guesthouse would be very difficult to locate even with local directions. When we finally found it, much of the monastery was under construction and seemed to have been for a very long time. When we arrived, the manager could not be located, so we talked with the monks. After they called him, he arrived, showed us to our rooms, and promptly disappeared. We had the monks call him again to come to help with us with wifi (which isn't provided in the the rooms), breakfast (which he was shocked we wanted even though the Agoda booking says "Breakfast included"), and other general hospitality needs. After breakfast our first morning, we didn't see him again during our 3 days. He wasn't even available for us to check out. We just waved goodbye to the monks on our way to the train station. This guesthouse isn't all bad. It was located on a hillside, so it had amazing views beside the monks dorm. It was also located on the train tracks. Although it is very loud when the trains come through, the tracks make it very convenient to go to and from town and see all the sites without having to walk up a very steep hill. Although the manager is not helpful, the monks are great. It is also very easy to find if you just walk the train tracks from the train station. All Sri Lankans in this area do it and you'll find many other foreigners doing the same. The guesthouse is located just after the 167 3/4 marker. When you get to the marker, you can look to the right and see the red roof of the monastery in the distance. Just after you pass a cafe, there are a set of stairs, which take you directly to the guest rooms.

l emplacement
Bon emplacement pour rejoindre le village à pied, en dix minutes, en utilisant la ligne de chemin de fer, qui fait aussi office de voie piétonne juste en dessous. Ne pas rater la montée à Ella rock, difficile, bonne condition physique, plus facile, le Little Adam'pic Le jeune homme, gentil,n a pas vraiment le sens de l accueil du touriste et arnaqueur sur une course en tuk tuk, contrairement au prix initial. Bien pour y passer une ou deux nuits, sans attendre d autres prestations Calme, avec pour voisin, les moines boudhistes.

Отель при храме с потрясающим видом”
открывающийся вид
Отель расположен в храме. Очень красивый вид. Номера чистые. Не очень удобно добираться до магазинчиков и кафе
