The view is to spectacular. Its a quiet part of the town but not too far away walking down the rail track. Loved the balcony and food was simple but tasty. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone who have a few days in Ella.

A new hotel with spectacular view of Ella. Owners are friendly and accommodating. Room and bathroom are big and spacious. Not easy to navigate to this place, I'm sure road condition will improve over time. Highly recommended.

The rooms are beautifully renovated, beds are comfy and the owner very helpful and sweet. We actually wanted to stay only for a night but will book for another one. Walking distance to city center and the view from the terrace is breathtaking

Unfortunately only after arriving in Ella that we noticed we could have done much better than Laura hotel. It was too late to leave because we had booked for 2 nights. The location was ok, but not the best in Ella. The road to the hotel was not very convenient if you had a car and a lot of luggage....

Laura is a great little hotel. It's furnished wonderfully, and the views from the dining area are absolutely incredible. I can't begin to say how great they are when compared with the hostels/hotels in the town. The hotel is a very short walk into town - 4-5 mins walk along the train tracks, which are perfectly safe as there are...
