My girlfriend and I came to Mars Hotel very late but the owner still came out into the street to greet us and brought our bags upstairs with one the workers. He then brought us smoothies and stayed up to talk to us for any questions we had about the city and where to go. He was so super nice and the breakfast is really good! Thank you once again!

View was great. Room was relatively clean. Short walk to beach. Host was very nice even got us a driver to our next destination without problems. However 2 major issues. 1. Our room had a mosquito problem. We complained to the host upstairs and he just told us to keep the doors windows closed which they were. However, we noticed doors had gaps that critters can slip through. So all night we were up clapping away and with mosquitoes in our ears. 2. The bathroom smell was horrid. Like the kind that stung your nose. It had a window but the owner told us keep windows closed for the mosquitos. Even with the door closed, the smell would hint throughout the room. I've been backpacking around SL for 2 weeks and this was by far the worst. I am not sure if all rooms are like this and we didnt want to seem like complaining guest. However if you get keys to room 26....be prepared. You get what you pay for. If those things don't bother you. Then you will enjoy it.

• Got a completely different room that was on the booking picture (Booking.com) •not the same bed as on the pictures! On booking page it was a full double bed. We got 2 singles pushed together. • We asked for the room we booked but they wanted an extra 4000rs a night. (We didn’t change) • room we got was very dingy, 100% not 3* room on booking page was very bright. • not very helpful staff • anyway it’s a huge disappointment as this is the 3rd week of travelling Sri Lanka an is the first hotel we have stayed to not be 1 bit helpful, especially when we asked if they was busy and they said “no it’s off season so the hotel is near enough empty” I said if it’s not busy why can’t we have the room we booked and he just said 4000rs. at this point we are happy to lose money an check out to another hotel.

Mars Hotel is a few minutes from the bus station & beach in Tangalle. 100 Rs Tuk tuk from the bus station or 5 mins walk. It's a small hotel in a 7 storey building... Taking up 2 floors - with 8 or so rooms across one floor, the top floor being a restaurant/breakfast area. My room was fairly big, nice chilled AC - could have done with a lick of paint perhaps. WiFi was sketchy in the room but fine in the open balcony area (which is a nice place to relax). There was some noise at night & early morning from the floor above which may not be the fault of the Hotel. The walk to the beach is a rather shabby route across a rust bucket of a bridge. Be aware if you have children. As for Tangalla itself, the beach is ok but it's a pretty empty place. I stayed here for a few days to break a long journey up. If you're looking for a vibe, or some action by SL standards stay in Mirissa or Unawatuna.
