Not so pleasant stay at an overpriced place with only a small double bed, small and dirty bathroom. Room was part of an apartment, 2 other bedrooms. Hotel might have been nice a decade ago. Since then no renovation work has been done. Poor value for money. The restroom of the restaurant on the beach was a mess. Sink was... More

Strategically located near Mt.Lavinia beach gives you an absolute comfort in the scenic Island. An ideal place for a holiday or business travellers. Restaurant by the beach an ideal spot for a family lunch or dinner. The service was very good as expected. As a Grade A Hotel with comfortable 40 A/C rooms, swimming pool,,and a sea just 12 km....

Not overly clean, mirrors hadn't been cleaned fr a while, lots of cob webs Didn't mind having to cross railway track to get to breakfast - which was ok - added... More

Haus Chandra is an old-fashioned, family-run hotel. It isn't for the mirrors and chrome crowd. It is somewhat run down (it has been awhile since any real money went into it), but it is clean and well-managed. The staff is terrific. It is very quiet, at a distance off the Galle Road (except on Saturday nights, when beach music can... More

I have stayed at the hotel for a week. I like the rooom and the view and the location and the service.. the only thing I still cannot understand why they were busy with chemical and very stinking desinfection while the guests were in their rooms.... At least, it was not good for health...

We stayed here at the end of June for convenience as I was travelling very early the next morning from Katunayake to Europe and my wife was catching an early Helitours flight from Ratmalana. We were checked in promptly albeit indifferently into a standard room which we had booked via Agoda. The room was very compact. However, the cleanliness of... More
