“A nicer place you will not find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2014 via mobile

We stayed at Ranjan's beautiful place for 2 nights and had an absolute ball. He's a kind and gracious host, the food is delicious, the rooms comfortable and VERY clean. You can hire bikes and the hotel is a located very close to the centre of town and the main sites.
Do yourself a favour and stay here!!

Ranjan runs a fantastic guest house with clean and bright rooms and a lovely outdoor eating area with delicious food. Great prices! There is good wifi also. The best part is Ranjan himself, always happy and laughing, and very helpful. He will sit down and show you all the sites in Anuradhapura and give you a map, and he has bicycles to use. Would definitely recommend!

Me and my wife spent there two nights and were happy to find this place. Ranjan is a lovely, warm and helpful owner of this place and with his attitude he would solve any problem or case you're working on concerning your trip. The area can be really noisy (especially with a morning train going nearby), but you can easily get to the new city. You can do sightseeing in the old city on a free of charge bike ride. We were a little disappointed with the room (one part of the bed was really uncomfortable), but overall I would recommend it anyway - mainly because it is worth to meet Ranjan:)

We really loved our stay at Lievi's. The rooms were impeccably clean and comfortable, with hot showers and air conditioning. There were bikes to borrow for the day to take off sight seeing, comfy chairs in the beautiful garden to chill out in, and a TV area to watch the cricket! But the best thing by far was the lovely owner Ranjan with his great tips on what to see in Sri Lanka, and his incredible cooking. No joke, it was the BEST food we had during our 2 weeks in the country, and to top it off, Ranjan treated us to an impromptu cooking lesson where we learnt how to cook several yummy dishes. I would definitely recommend Lievi's to anyone.

Ann and l have been minimalist backpackers for over 40 years. We rely on excellent hospitality as Rajan offers with a simple but flexible menu with mild Srilankan curries and a local caramel to die for!
Full laundry facilities, reasonable rates and always time to have a chat.
We have stayed here twice whilst touring the north of the country.Reservations recommended to avoid disappointment

The Lievi's is a real good choice if you want to travel on a small budget: ~2000rp for a double room without a/c (which is not necessary in december).
Ranjar, the owner, is really helpful, he is a good cook and his crew is very polite.
The location is quite noisy at night (trains) and the rooms could need some repainting.
Nevertheless: we definitely would come back.
