Located on a perfect place, in middle on jaffna town.And it will make your trip easier to move around with out a hustle. Bathrooms have low pressure water and will take ages to have a wash. If you are a bathroom singer you can singalong with the guy in next room because both bathroom have the same air vent(not on... More

If you plan to be out during the day time and only looking for a place to sleep and rest, ask for the ground floor rooms, they have twin beds but its more spacious than the upstairs rooms. its easy to move around. upstairs rooms have a double beds. rooms are very clean and so are the toilets.

Avoid this place if you want to sleep peacefully at night. It seems to be a magnet for large, noisy groups of travelers. I am still awake at midnight for the second day running. The management probably gives discounted rates for 'walk in' bus loads at night, who seem to think that there are no other guests in the hotel.... More

We came to this place for a one night stay with two families. We got two rooms and one of them had a continuous failing air-conditioning unit. They offered another small room as a replacement. The worst part it this; we went to the restaurant at 8 pm in the evening and we ordered our food at around 8.15 pm... More

We stayed here for two nights in February 2013. I thought the size of the room was surprisingly good for what we paid, though it was fairly basic. A mosquito net would have really helped - they clustered in the bathroom in particular. We ate at the restaurant and found the food okay, and the kitchen/serving staff quite friendly. When... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and were very disappointed. The rooms were very small, the bed very uncomfortable and so were the pillows. The TV was not working well and the room felt dirty. Only good thing was the hot shower. Not worth the money. Food in the restaurant was also disappointing. Room service was terrible as they often... More

I was very satisfied with the service. It is a real hotel with friendly and helpful staff. We got a really tiny room. The bathroom was so tiny you could use the toilet, shower and sink at the same time, which can be convenient. :) But still, it was ok for one night. I noticed that they have bigger rooms... More

The room was small, basi and neat, but it has never been cleaned since I was there (4 days). The toilet was ok, but they gave me only one small towel. The internet wasn't working while I was there. The staff even though was kind, didn't understand english very well and didn't dare to say they weren't understanding so most... More
