Our stay was just perfect. We stayed there for 1 night. Just enought to visit the old city. The owner found us a guide. The food is good. Quiet and central location. We talked to the owner during all the evening about Sri Lanka. We've learned a lot. Thank you!

Fabulous stay at Lievis Tourist Homestay. Wonderful relaxing garden to chill in. Fabulous authentic Sri Lankan food, plenty of sightseeing recommendations and only a short walk to the main street of town.

The homestay was a bit difficult to locate. The stay however, we have no complains about. The garden is very nice to look at when having breakfast, and the rooms are clean and comfortable to give us a good rest.

Room is clean and tidy staff very friendly great place to stay just felt super pressured into using there tuk tuk services and restaurant is so over priced and over salted. The commission you make feels like a rip off to your customers.

I don't know if there is any "good" location in Anuradhapura, but this one was OK. Basic facilities and great food. But the best is the owner and his willingness to help and offer advice.

Overall good service can recommond to anyone”
Overall good service can recommond to anyone. But check when you book whether the room rate includes the AC or not. If not you have to pay additional $ 7 at the hotel. Anuradhapura is fairly warm area and You cannot leave the windows open with the fan for ventilation because of mosquitos. So you need the AC or else can use the Mosquito nets they have provided.

Great service good location”
We were welcomed by owner lievi as soon as we arrived. The staff (sanju and chathu) were excellent and good attentive service. The beds and pillows are very comfy and the room has a table for your luggage and bedside tables for things and lots of places to hang clothes etc. good hot shower. Quiet at night for sleeping. Breakfast is simple but served nicely with good coffee. The menu is simple but good and the beer was very cold! Owner lievi was very helpful with a map so we could make the short walk to town for some purchases. Then we did some of the free sightseeing things via walking and tuk Tuk. We Enjoyed our stay here.

Amazingly friendly staff and ver”
This place is the best. The staff are extremely service minded, but not at all present or pushy. They help you find your way around the temples and provide well cared for bikes. We explored the "free" temples one day and the "paid" temples the next all on bikes. You can also hire a three-wheeler to tour you around. If you need a ride to a bus station they will bring you in their own tuc-tuc. The food is great, we ate every meal at the hotel during our 2 night stay. I recommend the devilled pork, it is superb. The surroundings are tropical and calm. There is hot water and good AC. Critical points are: bedlinnen is a bit dated and too cold for sleeping in AC (this seems the standard in Sri Lanka). The hotel is close to the train tracks so you will hear the occasional train pass. We actually liked this and should not scare you off at all! Overall we would recommend this place on a mid to low budget. Chathu made our stay exceptional with his enthusiasm! We would stay here again.

Simple Guest House with Restaurant”
My single room was not big but adequate, fairly basic, with good air con and fan. Other rooms were more spacious. This is a popular spot in a great location close to both town and the ancient site. The kitchen serves good food, available all day, which is a blessing since there are not a lot of eating options in Anuradhapura. The garden-side porch is a great place to relax and meet other travellers. The owner and his employees are lovely. The owner arranged an excellent tuk-tuk tour of the ancient city at a good price. For mid-range accommodations, I recommend this guest house.

We had a great stay at Lievy's!! Good place, we felt at home. On our First night they invited us to attend a party on conmemoration on a local lodging project which was a great experience. Also another night he was kind enough to share their dinner since it was too late when we decided to have dinner. The rest of the staff also very kind. Good wifi most of the time, clean room... helpful with info & tour inquiries... Totally recommend

Wonderful accomodation in Anuradhapura”
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!

Small oasis”
Central but quiet location, very nice and honest owner and staff, good food
We stayed for 3 nights at Lievis and if we return to Anuradhapura would choose this place again. The rooms are nice but was is even nicer is the small garden and patio in front of the rooms which form a small oasis in busy Anuradhapura town. The owner and the staff were very nice and helpful and the location is very central. There are also some bikes for rent in order to explore the town. What impressed us most was the honesty of the owner, who discovered some error in the bill after we had paid and came all the way to the bus station with his scooter to find us in the bus, stopped the driver and refunded us the money... We highly recommend this place.
