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

The room was big, very basic and clean. The bed is OK. Sheets and towels are also ok. The toilet is small but not neat. Service is great, helpful and caring. Central location, near bus station is big asset this place.

True. This hotel is in the City centre, less than a 100 metres away from the central bus station. Thus there is easy access to the markets, sales outlets for electronic goods, three-wheeler scooter taxis and across the road from the main hospital. Since the end of a 26 year old separatist war in May 2009, several guest houses and... More

The rooms are rather small and very basic but clean. The bed is OK. Sheets and towels are also quite ok. The pillow is rather small. The toilet is also small but not unclean. There is a hot water shower but it is certainly not the best. It is the kind of place you would only sleep in. I would... More

Firstly, this hotel is only a couple of hundred metres from the bus station which is very convenient. Rooms are small but clean, arranged around a courtyard. The beds are comfortable and there's a great selection of satellite channels on the TV. The restaurant has a very limited selection, but I found the same all over Jaffna. Staff are enthusiastic...

Good place for people on strict budget but service is very poor. I stayed there for a night to entertain my friend from London but it turned out to be a disaster. Although the room is small it is very comfortable and clean. However it was a mistake that we decided to have our meal in their restaurant. When we... More
