      The colonial style hotel is a bit shabby, and it looks a little bad, but I'm also worried about bringing children to stay. The experience of two nights on New Year's Eve is not bad. Close to the city center and Kandy Lake, you can walk to the Buddha Tooth Temple and the shopping street, breakfast and dinner in the garden restaurant are ok, and the pool at the door is beautiful

      Breakfast is average, rooms are quite spacious, location is ok, old building remodeled, slightly old, far worse than Hill Club in Nuvo town in the back, and certainly cheaper than the latter, but really not worth 700 yuan. Kandy, as the second largest city in Sri Lanka, is really a misnomer. It only needs one day. It is better to stay in Nuvo for two days. If you buy gemstones, Kandy is better. Hemachandras has no fakes. After buying, it will be sent to Colombo for NGJA identification. The appraiser said that good stone. When buying, the price is slashed, and the listed price is discounted by 0.25 to 0.28. Kandy is more primitive and simple, so I do n’t watch it when time is limited

      The hotel is 100 years old, and the building is particularly colonial. Old facilities are understandable. The service was attentive and the manager would come and chat at breakfast. Isn't traveling just for experience?

      It is indeed a hotel with a very long history, a beautiful restaurant with a garden pool, a European style, a huge wooden room door, and a very high room rack, which shows the former glory. but! !! !! Definitely not recommended! Very poor sound insulation! very bad! very bad! Our room was arranged on the second floor, next to the restaurant. First, the lobby bar played and sang until 10:30 in the evening. At the end, we thought we could fall asleep. Around 12 o'clock, a bunch of Europeans who had drunk drinks continued chatting in the lobby bar and laughed loudly. To half past one! No one manages, almost no sound insulation! Finally they returned to the room to rest, the bulky wooden door was closed without any buffer, like firing! Noisy all night without sleep, collapse! Never stay here!

        The hotel is located on the edge of Kandy Lake. It is an old building with large rooms, the temperature of the bath water is not very stable, the breakfast is good, the restaurant is very special, and the price is good.
