stayed here two nights. I booked through agoda. but I feel that this rooms are bit over priced for $42 per night on BB basis. Rooms were cleaned yet very basic. staff was very helpful yet lack of professionalism was visible. hotel is within the Jaffna city so it is located very close to most of city attractions and restaurants.

Stayed there for 3 nights. This is an average budget hotel within the city limits. There's nothing great about the food but the staff are very courteous and try to look after you to the best possible extent. There buffet has a very small spread with the same items. We stayed there for 3 days and they had the same... 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. If you... More

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
