We arrived in Lakshmi without a booking, but soon found it a warm place to stay. The new owner just re-opened the guest house (which existing for many years already) six days before we arrived. Looking at the reviews, it can only be considered a good thing that the guest house now has a new owner. Ajith has live in... More

I wouldnt recommend this guest house. Prices depend on the clients (I got charged 500RS more than my neighbors for the exact same room and manager denied it..) bed are terribly hard, shared bathroom is very small and gets dirty really fast, and it was also really noisy. You can find better accommodation just a few steps away.

Hotel is located on the hill. Perhaps few meters further then others but allows you to escape from noisy Kandy and see the city from height. Tuk-tuk from the center cost 1 EUR. We came there in the night. Despite late hour the Owner welcomed us and accodated in rooms. He is really peacefull and helpfull person and you feel... More

The owner was very friendly and helpful and we were spent a fantastic night at Kandy thanks them. We wish them all the best in their new... More

Arrived around 6pm to find all other guest houses either full of over priced (e.g. 4000RS for shared bathroom). So, Lakshmi it was. The room was generally disgusting. The bedding was damp and smelled musty, bed was stained, mosquito net had holes in and didn't fit over the bed. Worst of all though was the bathroom. The wall and ceiling... More

We arrived quite late (after 10pm) due to a train delay. We were tired and just wanted to sleep so stayed here. However had it not been so late we would not have stayed. Very overpriced for the quality of room (2000rps) per night! Rooms were basic and pretty grim! Stains all over the mattress. Bathroom was pretty gross too.... More

The restaurant is expensive so I suggest you eat out. We had dry chicken fried rice- wasn't great. Also the breakfast is hugely overpriced. The rooms were fine for the budget traveller, we even had hot water in the morning. The staff were super friendly though and the laundry service is great.

Listed in the newest Lonely Planet as a budget option. I can't stand when hotels and guesthouses that are listed as budget options automatically start charging more, even though they keep things the exact same, or even worse! That seems to be the case here. They're cashing in on their listing in the Lonely Planet. This is why I try... More
