The Takeshi Inn owner makes staying here an easy rest. Very accommodating, he met me at the bus stop, gave me the exact times to take the local bus to Sigirya, and when leaving insisted I go to town with him and get on the bus sooner hopefully ensuring a seat. The Takeshi Inn is a 15 minute walk from... More

We stayed here for one night. We had a double fan room, which was fine but the bathroom was not that clean (there was a sanitary pad wedged in the window grill and a bit of grime in the corners) and unfortunately the mosquito net didn't fit over the bed properly. The owners were very nice, but it's pretty noisy... More

Stayed here as a base for checking out the 'cultural triangle' for 4 nights. The room was very clean, basic but comfortable. There is aircon but we just used the fan, and just about managed. There was hot water and ensuite bathroom. Wifi worked in the room for us and also in the garden. The owner and his family are... More

We stayed here for 5 days and used it as a base for the cultural triangle. The room was clean although a bit warm at times (air con was available but we elected not to use it). The owners are fantastic and were very helpful in suggesting places off the beaten track. They helped us organise a scooter so that... More

I stayed at Takeshi Inn for two nights. I love that they had some tables, benches and a hammocks in the garden. I wasn't feeling well one day, so I was resting at the garden and played with the little granddaughter for a while. The owner and his family were really friendly and helpful. The room was basic with mosquito... More

Me and my girlfriend spent 2 nights at Takeshi Inn and had a pretty nice stay there. For $25USD a night we were given a double room with a mosquito net, plus fan and ensuite bathroom. The room was nice and clean and it wasnt that noisy either considering the main road is only 20m away. The location isnt amazing... More

Takeshi was recommended by another traveler so I called ahead and stayed 3 nights. The owner came and picked me up from the bus at no charge as its a little out of town but perfect for catching the bus to Sigiriya Rock and Polonnaruwa. The rooms are basic but clean with mosquito nets and fans / air-con (if you... More

We arrived at takeshi's late and so there was only one room left, which the owner seemed slightly apologetic about when showing us (the middle room of the 3 fan rooms). But it was fine. Not the largest, but double bed, mosquito net and fan. Bathroom was ok, but door wouldn't shut properly and toilet flushing system had broken slightly... More

Reservation : made a 2 nights reservation through agoda and paid usd30 a night which is like 200% more than walk in customers paying for the same aircon room at 2000rs. Reception : shown to my room immediately upon arrival. Slight confusion created by the 3 wheeler driver who brought me there. Nothing serious Room: smells a bit damp but... More
