Reading other reviews it is difficult to understand the location of the hotel. Not helped by Google Maps showing the Office location in Jaffna town and not the hotel. It is roughly in the centre of the peninsula in Chunnakam. About 11 kms from the centre. Rooms are well equipped with some having attached bathrooms outside. Food is good with... More

Jaffna is very short on hotels and it appears that Fits Pavilion has closed (Jan 2015) We stayed at the Margosa and we had a driver so its out of town location was not a problem. It has wifi. It is essentially a typical Sri Lanka rest house. Clean, basic and very good Sri Lankan food. The bathrooms are eccentric... More

This small boutique hotel is well situated just outside Jaffna's central market (3 min auto ride). Rooms are clean and well furnished, with good air-conditioning. Bathrooms could do with some modernising. The feel is of an old colonial villa. And the food is delicious (breakfast and dinner). Highly recommended.

Stayed here for three nights in June 2014. We stayed in one of the outside rooms on the ground floor. The room was basic but had the essentials. The bathroom was a bit dated but adequate. Some of our party stayed in the inside rooms and they appeared to be nicer rooms. A/c in the room worked well and wifi... More

Expo Pavilion is a boutique hotel and a home away from home. It has 7 rooms, all well furnished. We stayed in this homely hotel earlier this year. The service was excellent. We could order whatever food we wanted. The food was fantastic, especially the sea food. The hotel is well positioned in a quiet part of Jaffna town, but... More

We stayed 3 nights at Expo pavilion. It's situated in the city convenience to all the attractions in Jaffna. Management is very helpful all the time, they served like a boutique hotel. There set menu is limited, but the rooms are very good inside the bungalow. Clean toilets as well. Tasty food too.

This was my first visit to Jaffna, and there aren't many places available to stay in Jaffna, there are I am fairly no hotels at the present moment however a few are coming up. This place is a small house converted into a small retreat, and has a home feel to it. The rooms are nice and spacious and has... More

My Review will cover the wonders of the little Peninsula, Jaffna while I can gladly ask you to book FITS if you want to enjoy your Jaffna Package. We stayed at Expo Pavilion at the heart of the city, minutes away from the Nallur Kandaswamy Hindu temple, the famous RIO ice cream, the Jaffna Library and the Dutch fort. Expo... More
