I chose this hotel because it is just in front on the temple and very central. Also the cost was fair and in Kandy I would not spend too much time inside the hotel so thought it was a good idea. Also the hotel has history. That said, as a solo traveler I did not enjoy my sleep experience. The hotel is super old, the room is giant and you can hear any noise from outside. I had to call reception to ask my neighbor to make silence at 1am. ( Well, non polite people is not the hotels fault).
The hotel is huge and my room was super far from reception and walking during the evening alone was a creepy experience. All is quite and you hear steps and a staff appears from nowhere. Scary.
After all, breakfast was nice and food at the restaurant is nice and in a fair price. Also you have all around the corner such as bank, mall, groceries, etc. A tuk tuk can take you around and also if you need to book a car to take you to your new destination you can find small agencies near the hotel. The staff was cool especially in the bar and restaurant, the ones in the receptions can improve their attention to the client. The swimming pool is nice.
So overall not a bad hotel but definitely not the one for me, at least not when I am travelling alone. Maybe the hotel should consider putting solo travelers a bit closer to reception so they feel safer. ;)
