I was here at the end of March and I stayed for four nights.The room was very big, clean and a reasonable price. The staff was very friendly and they made my stay very pleasant.

Staying in Nilaveli Beach area, it was one of the cheaper Hotels. The people who work there were really friendly. Wifi didn't reach to the room. But there are many nice seats outside the room, to relax and use the free Wifi.

We only had 1 night here but it was a good one. The tuk tuk driver got a little lost finding the place one the way there but it was easily corrected. The location is really good for reaching a nice, clean stip of beach. The manager, Mohamed, was very friendly and helpful. He arranged bikes for us to explore... More

My Family and I lived at a different hotel and was paying double the price. Once we saw the positive reviews by the TripAdvisor community about this hotel, we moved into it and never regretted our decision. The manager Mohamed was very helpful with all our questions regarding the places we wanted to visit. He also gave us a reasonable... More

We did not sleep in the Shahira Hotel but we ate there a few times and it was one of the best restaurants in Nilaveli comparing to the others. The food was very good and the prices fair. Most of all we liked the cosy and romantic atmosphere in the garden and the outstanding service by the waiters of the... More

Hotel is very close to the beach. I really enjoy the fishing at the early morning at the beach side together w/ local people. Lovely place, good sevice and very friendly stuff, especially Mohamed Sadig. I travelled alone, he always checked with me where I would go and with whom to make sure I'm safe.

Our stay at Shahira was lovely. The accomodation is modest, but very comfortable, and the staff, namely Mohamed Sadiq, was very kind and attentive. He was also helpful in organising scooters, bikes, and tuk-tuks at our request. It's also very close to the beach which makes for a scenic stay.

Nice hostel direct on the beach. The rooms are clean and the service really good. The host will help you with any questions you have. also a good place if you wanna snorkel around that area. We would stay there any time again.
