This is another hotel that you'll either love or hate - personally I loved it. My room was noisy with bent Crittall windows that let all the traffic noise in, we only had one bedside lamp (oh no, the hardship!), the hot water was intermittent, the shower curtain insisted on attacking me at every opportunity and the coffee may well have been made with mud! BUT what a place to stay. Great location in the centre of Kandy - use being woken by the traffic as an excuse to get up and wander the streets as the city wakes - fall back into the history of the place and pretend it's the 1930's. Then you'll enjoy it. I would recommend eating out though!
