We stayed two nights at The Drop Inn Kandy. There was nice personal, it has a good view over the city and lake, it has clean and functional rooms. The Wifi is little slow (upload). Walking distance to the temple of tooth and lake within about 10 minutes.

This is a budget hotel and walking distance to the temple of tooth relic. They offer food but better to to go for room only option and take food from outside rooms are not maintained well. ( at least not all rooms ). This property needs a good renovation. However staff is friendly and trying to offer a good service....

This hotel has a lovely view of Kandy, however that does not make up for the fact that it was filthy. For the price we paid, I do not want stray cats running into my room when I open the screen door and hiding under the bed. The bathroom was very dirty.

Hustled our way from Galle to Kandy and made our way to the Drop Inn. 4 incredible nights surrounded by beautiful mountains and hills and the most friendly and wonderful hostel staff I have ever met. They have kittens, puppies and the occasional wild boar. Rooms are cosy but spacious and breakfast is always a delight. Would recommend to all....

We stayed in Pinewood Cottage which is a private room at the top of the house with absolutely stunning views! It's a lovely cottage for couples to stay in as it has a separate and private living / kitchen area and bedroom. Herbert and his staff were very helpful in providing us with information and transportation for day trips and...

We stayed in this hotel at the beginning of our journey and as we liked the atmosphere, the room, food and the staff, we came here again when we had to stop over in Kandy amidst our vacation. The rooms are simply made but have everything you need. The view on the terrace is nice and the staff are very...

We arrived late at night and still got a very warm welcome. The owner was very helpful in providing information on where to go for food, sightseeing, etc. Breakfast was included - on the balcony, overlooking parts of Kandy. We were there in the off-season, so the owner had a lot of time on his hands. spent some time talking...

Cute little hostel. Staff was very helpful and welcoming. Breakfast was provided. Location was great close to the temple of the sacred tooth relic albeit on a hill but so is most of the city. Very nice view from the terrace for breakfast and late night relaxation.
