We stayed at Hotel Lux Etoiles one night whereafther we literally fled the next morning to hotel Yal's Town Inn (which I by the way heartily can recommend). The rooms were claustrophobic and the interior was old and worn out. The rooms were clean but my parents sheets were dirty. The service was very poor and in generel we just... More

You’re not coming here on holiday so probably don’t expect too much. But this place is OK if staying in Jaffna and more. Rooms are small but clean and cool, with good air-conditioning. Wi-fi is very strong which is a big plus. And they bring a morning cup of tea to the room – what more could you want! Reasonable... More

Stayed here for a night, the room was clean and small. Friendly staff and most importantly flexible. Minutes away from ice cream shops. Definitely a convenient location. They had good fresh juices for the jaffna heat. They are pizzas tasted good.

This hotel looks good on the Internet, but it is nothing like that. It is dreary and much of it is under construction. We took one look -- there were few hotel rooms available in Jaffna, it being a holiday -- but we were willing to sleep in the car. Happily we found another place (Green Grass, which is not... More

On a last minute decision, we decided to visit Jaffna on a busy long weekend and found everywhere we wanted to stay booked out. Having found a room here we took it as we had limited choice. Lux is well located near the Nallur Temple, town center and well known eateries. The rooms whilst small, were clean, had a well... More

We stayed here for 2 nights here. The rooms are small but clean. The bathrooms are super clean too. Polite staff and the breakfast was decent too. We arrived here super early around 4:00 AM and they accommodated us. Which was a big relief!

We spent three nights in the hotel and ate several meals there. The hotel is conveniently located for the station and the town centre. Our room was small but had working aircon, tv and hot and cold water and was clean. The service was good. The meal on the last evening was cooked to order and was very good -... More

A good find in Jaffna. Friendly and interesting staff. Decent tasty food served although on the pricier side. There's a pool next door although we didn't use it as planned. Quite a bit if construction at the time which can be a negative.

We made a booking over the phone en route to Jaffna and everything was ready for us upon arrival! The staff were so helpful and let us use the pool past closing time! They also organised a tuk tuk for us to go out for dinner, wait and bring us home. The next day we were allowed a late check... More

Jaffna is a city with a lot of regeneration and the Lux Etoile is in similar mode. The original part of the hotel represents good value, the rooms are spacious and clean but a little tired. The food served, like the staff service is excellent and we ate in two of our three nights. A new part of the hotel... More
