Heaven Upon Rice Fields
Anuradhapura Town,Anuradhapura - View on map
"This was the first place we stayed on our trip to Sri Lanka and what a welcome we received! The room was gorgeous with a balcony and views overlooking the paddy fields. We lay in bed and watched the sunrise. So relaxing and peaceful. The room was spotlessly clean and the bed super comfortable making for a great night's sleep. The people are so friendly, they couldn't do enough for us, helping to organise transport, laundry and trips. We ate there every evening and the food was excellent. We recommend asking the hotel to organise a tuk-tuk to visit the ancient sites of Anuradhapura. The driver who took us was very knowledgeable, spoke great English and gave us a great insight into the history, culture and wildlife of Sri Lanka. Book this hotel, you won't be disappointed!"

The Heritage Hotel
Anuradhapura Town,Anuradhapura - View on map
"It was our second stay at Heritage hotel in Anuradhapura and management did not disappoint us again, on the contrary. Staff is again friendly and service minded, especially for one of our disabled companions. The scenery from the hotel is magic: the beautiful view of Thissa Wewa with all the 2000 year old large Dagoba’s on the horizon. Breakfast and dinner are buffets and have a good selection for everyone from Western to Sri Lankan food. And is it not there and you ask it, than they will bring you it if it is in the kitchen: like my tasteful mango ice cream. Rooms are clean and wide with airco. The bathroom has a shower."

City Resort
Anuradhapura Town,Anuradhapura - View on map
"City Resort has more of a homestay feel than hotel. My room was clean, spacious and comfortable. The breakfast was freshly prepared when you were ready to eat. The customer service is exceptional - the staff helped with planning out a cycling tour in Anuradhapura, a car hire to Polonnaruwa, a tuk-tuk tour. All with exceptional prices, I met other travelers and the tour prices I got thru City Resort was the best. The staff also talked me out of getting a car to Kandy and take the A/C bus instead so I could save 9000 rupees. Since I was traveling as a solo female, the staff arranged for a tuk-tuk driver in the evening to ensure I made it back safely. You will have a very smooth trip in Anuradhapura if you stay here!!!!"

Big Game - Wilpattu by Eco Team
Wilpattu National Park,Anuradhapura - View on map
"Our stay here was the best of all the (9) places we stayed in Sri Lanka. The accommodation itself is a tent of course but this is definitely Glamping! There is an attached bathroom, electricity (at night), porch and lots of little touches that make your stay comfortable. The staff were friendly, extremely knowledgeable about the surrounding nature and unerring in their excellent service which even extended to the holding of umbrellas over us when there was a little shower during our Al fresco lunch! We ate Lunch, Dinner and Breakfast there and the food was among the best we had during our holiday. We did the safari and had a nature walk with them during our stay and these were also excellent and the best that we experienced during our stay in Sri Lanka as both the naturalist and the driver were very skilled despite their youth. If you are undecided because of the price, don't be, our stay was worth every penny."

Lievis Tourist Homestay - Anuradhapura
Anuradhapura Town,Anuradhapura - View on map
"Lievi's Tourist Accomodation is one of the accomodations where I felt the most comfortable in Sri Lanka. The loaction ist really good: close enough to the city (even when there barely something to see there) and you can rent bikes for a good price to go to the ancient cities, which takes with a bike under 10 minutes. I personally recommend visiting the ancient cities at least with a bike! The Accomodation is also really nice, with a beautiful, quiet garden in front of all rooms, perfect to relax. The rooms are built in a way, that on one extreme there is a window facing the garden and on the other the bathroom. I guess all rooms have a window! The rooms are also really clean, have a mosquito net and there is warm water in the bathroom. And Lievi ist just a wonderful person. We got a welcome drink when we arrived, and we talked with him about our possibilities for our trip. He gave us lots of advice and information, which was very helpful! If you are lucky, you can even have a chat with him in the night and get some insider information about Sri Lanka! Taking the place into account, this becomes probably one of the best places to be in Anuradhapura. I would always recommend it!"

More about Anuradhapura

Anuradhapura is a city of history with a heavy Buddhist culture. Travelers enter via Anuradhapura Airport, but the four- to five-hour car or bus ride from Colombo is also a viable option. So too are the train services coming from the south. Within the city, tuks tuks and buses are the ways to get around, and taking on the city by foot has its perks as well.

From the Old Town to the New Town, travelers here will surely find something to discover. The Archaeology Museum and The Folk Museum offer insight into the rich history of the land. These sites are great precursors to grabbing a tuk tuk and exploring the Old Town, where the vast majority of the city’s archaeology can be found. Many of the sites are rooted in Buddhism, from the Bodhi Tree Temple to the 1,600 stone pillars of the Lovamahapaya.

The New Town offers a more compressed area to explore and is the place to go for shopping and dining. Restaurants, snack shops, and a few secluded bars are scattered throughout. If looking for souvenirs, the Old Town sells postcards, carved wooden figurines, replica artifacts, and a number of other items.
