The people at the reception desk are friendly, but non-organizised, e.g. I did spend 6 nights at this hotel, and the invoiced showed 6 nights in three different rooms. Most important: since years, no renovation work was done at this hotel. Therefore the place is a bit run-down, and there is also "toilet-smell" in the air. The rooms are spacious... More

The food was great, good service, friendly staff, great location. The menu has everything you would expect from a Sri Lankan restaurant but only downside it's a little bit more expensive than standard Sri Lankan food. However it's worth it.

We were fortunate to have stayed at Tilco City Hotel which served us some of the best prepared Jaffna Crab, Seafood platters and mutton curry. It is the place for the best Jaffna food from all places I’ve been. Topping it all we enjoyed meeting their staff as... More

STAY AWAY FROM THIS HOTEL! The number of rodents in this establishment is despicable. From the rooms to the restaurant! And this is not including the stench that seems to rise from the area on the whole. Do not stay here unless your life depends on it.
