Really well located in the city centre. Walking distance to temples, restaurants and bank. The rooms were clean. However, we had to get them to turn on the heater before we could get hot water to shower. Nonetheless we had an enjoyable stay.

              I booked this hotel for 2 nights and i had very bad experience: Case1: I requested for large bed since i was traveling with 2 small children (1 year and 2 years old). Request was approved and got acknowledgement in email. During check in hotel staff refused to give me large bed. Case2: I had flash memory and i put in hotel TV to play cartoon for my children. We went out from hotel and found memory disappear on our return. I asked hotel staff that flash memory is disappread from tv port. He did not take accountability of memory stick.

              It’s just 5-minute walk to the biggest shopping mall of Kandy where you can have some delicious food and buy some necessities. To the temple of the tooth relic is only 10-minute walk! To the bus station is only 15-minute walk! Of course the room was very nice and spacious! Every staff was friendly!

              We arrived at the hotel close to mid night and the staff were very helpful and accommodating. The rooms were clean although the bathroom was very small however for a stop over it was suitable. The staff again were very helpful on our departure and were able to answer any questions we had and also changed our larger notes into smaller ones. We paid 600LKR for breakfast which was average however substantial. It was in a great location with a 200LRK tuk tuk ride to the station or lake

              Great location; close to lake, markets, railway station, & Buddha tooth relic temple. Hotel design was like an Escher drawing, you ride the narrow elevator up to 2nd floor, walk down to get to 1sr floor which there are 2 of. Right & left stairways lead to different locations. The hotel was an attraction in itself! Helpful hotel staff who printed a map for us, assisted us with directions, & set us up with a driver to Ella.

              The hotel staff and the location were great and we don't have any complaints about that, breakfast overall was also fair but nothing exceptional. Sadly the rooms and hotel conditions are quite different to what you see in the pictures. Everything need a hand of paint, corridor carpets are full of stains, the same happens inside the rooms which are not well maintained and look used and dirty in general, bathroom condition were overall poor but it was clean, and tolitries were scarse and bad quality. I think for the price is possible to find better accommodations in Kandy. If you want a room with balcony be aware that the hotel is one of the main street, so it will be quite crowded until 7pm.

              But the room was overpriced, and the hotel needed maintenance. The hotel has a plaque that says it opened only 5yrs ago, but visiting the hotel, it seems as if it is older, but maybe mgmt changed 5yr ago. We ran the ac in our room while out on the balcony, and returned to find a big puddle in the doorway where the ac is because the ac wasn't draining. Maintenance was willing to fix, but needed to remove the ac unit to do so, which was going to take hrs we were told.

              We visited Kandy towards the end of the Esala Perahera festival and decided to stay in the centre of town. We were very glad we did as we did not anticipate how busy it would be! Luckily the Kandy City Hotel staff were very helpful and made sure they told us how to get around. The rooms are spacious and the bathrooms newly renovated - very nice showers. We had breakfast in the hotel only on one day, but it was a nice mix of Sri Lankan and Western food. I would definitely stay there again if I ever go back to Kandy.

              We went to see the Perahara and paid 5 times more than normal price. We had 3 double rooms. On arrival we had to pay extra US $95 as we hadn't stipulated that the double was for 2 people. The rooms smelt musty and in aweful need of repairs. won't reccommend this hotel, except good view of the Perahara.

              Nothing much was expected by us of the hotel in Kandy as we expected to merely sleep at the hotel and nothing more. The premises is satisfactorily maintained and the staff are friendly and helpful. Rooms are very small and the pictures online can be a little deceiving. The location of the hotel is the biggest draw card as it is close enough to all attractions in the city. Rooms could be cleaned a little better, but their condition is livable. Overall a decent stay.

I definitely recommend a walk around the corner to the Muslim district for a unique view of Kandy. Staff were excellent and rooms very tidy, probably recently renovated. Definitely recommend this place for couples or families.

              Excellent proper hotel in the centre of Kandy. Very nicely furnished quiet room. Good restaurant.
              We were very pleased with our stay here. The room was at the back, overlooking a side street; there was very little noise at all in the room. Service/house keeping etc. was excellent and we found all the staff friendly and helpful. Buffet breakfast was very comprehensive. The restaurant served a set 4 course meal for approx. 1000Lkr or a la carte; the set meal was very well presented and we thought good value. The only downside is that they don't serve alcohol. We ate in the hotel every night as we didn't find the local restaurants very appealing even though rated highly.
