Only three points which may discourage you ... First, Villa 49 does not serve alcohol. Second, there are a lot of steep stairs leading to the rooms which may not be suitable for some people with mobility problems or those with very young children. Third, there is no swimming pool. We spent four nights here. It is a great place...

We spent just two nights at this lovely place and were lucky enough to stay on the top floor, although I believe all rooms are equally as good. The room itself is large, good air con, big bed (maybe a little hard for me but that's a personal thing), small but effective bathroom and everything was spotlessly clean. Our first...

We stayed 2 adults and 2 children for 3 nights. The room was clean and spacious and we had a little nice balcony. The walk to city along the lake was nice and the children enjoyed the playground nearby. Breakfast was also nice and staff friendly. All in all very good value for money.

Villa 49 is a good place to stay in Kandy. An easy 10-15 min walk into town. Boutique homestyle.Clean and very comfortable. We were made to feel very welcome. Nice breakfast and the coconut pancakes were a real bonus.

There were 49 steps to the top! The hostess is a wonderful woman and able to help with drivers and ideas of things to do. Yummy breakfast. It was only a 15 minute walk to the center of Kandy. Loved my room.

We stayed here for 2 nights the end of December. The room was large and clean. Bathroom was on the small side but everything functioned well. Location is excellent, within easy walking distance of the Temple of the Tooth. Breakfasts and homemade dinners were served in an attractive dining room off a small garden and were very tasty.
