We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights at the end of our holiday in Sri Lanka. We always stayed at simple hotels and guesthouses, so details like having a fan without blades on it we hardly even noticed. However, we will remember this hotel as we had a room without windows. From walking past other rooms and talking to other guests, we know that our room was not the only one without windows. Additionally, our room was located almost right on top of the night club next door - the music started around 11pm and continued until the early morning hours at a volume where we could almost sing along with the songs. Needless to say we did not sleep much that night.
The next morning we asked for a different room away from the night club (we considered having a window a second priority). Our new room had a window and a functioning fan, however the window could not be opened and we couldn't actually see through the glass - but it was nice to have some daylight.
Apart from the noise-and-window hick-ups, this hotel had a similar standard to the rest of the places where we had been staying. Free wifi was available in the lobby, and the showers had warm water.
The location of the hotel is quite good. When you would like to have breakfast at the hotel, it is better to pay for this on the spot than to pre-order it at the time of your online hotel booking, because the price on the spot is lower than what is charged online. There are also several bakeries near the hotel, so it is easy to have breakfast outside.
