I travelled with a friend to Jaffna for the first time since the end of the war and chose Subhas on the basis of a recommendation of a friend who had stayed there previously. We stayed there for 2 nights including Christmas Day. Subhas is a basic but good city hotel close to the city centre. We found the service... More

We have stayed here twice in the last year and consider it to be the best value hotel in Jaffna. The rooms are spacious, clean bathroom with a separate shower, hot water, air-conditioning with ceiling fan as well, excellent food especially if you are a vegetarian, outstanding service and located within 15 minutes walk to the city centre.

I chanced to stay here for two nights. It is walking distance from the Jaffna Railway station and to the city centre. Clean rooms & linen. The chef Mr Shashidaran is very obliging and very competent and turns out some excellent dishes. Hotel is well worth another visit. Unfortunately one bad comment, when I was checking out, because I paid... More

A good place to stay, great location with an affordable price. Make sure you book a deluxe room because the standard deluxe rooms are terrible, standard deluxe rooms are small, A/Cs and heaters barely work. Deluxe rooms are good, you get what you pay for. Staff are friendly and the food was great

Good Budget hotel to Stay, very centrally located, behind the Govt hospital. Double rooms are fairly big and neat. The bathrooms are average. Had food in their restaurant. Food was very good and I enjoyed the Mutton curry and Fish curry.

My colleagues and I stopped here for one night, on our visit to Jaffna. This place is located in the center of the city, a little further from the market place and the bus stand. This was renovated after the war and looks a little old for in the structure overall. The rooms are a bit small and there isn't... More

Jaffna is still opening up to tourism so don't expect the standards you will find elsewhere in Sri Lanka. The pluses for this hotel are its central location and friendly and willing to please staff who looked after us. The rooms are comfortable with good storage space. We didn't eat there so can't comment on the evening food. We also... More

Location of this hotel is great, walking distance to town centre, good restaurants and quite a few sights. Rooms were good size, bathrooms modern but draining is a bit smelly. Downside for us was that the rooms were not properly serviced. Room cleaning consisted of the bed sheets being pulled up and that's about it. This is an issue when... More

I booked online a double room and a family "suite" for 2 nights and paid an advance of Rs25000. When we arrived in Jaffna and saw the rooms we were very shocked. The family suite which is the most expensive had no windows, dark and musty. It was more like a bunker than a suite, built for protection during the... More
