Visited jaffna for 2 days and stayed in Blue Wave hotel. A very basic hotel. Very clean but the shower pressure in toilet is bad so that is something you might have to adjust to. Other than that, the hotel staff were very helpful,esp the manager, Sanjeevan. He helped us arrange our transportation from place to place and gave alot of suggestions on what to do in Jaffna. We had a pleasant stay and two thumbs up for the staff of the hotel!

We liked the location in a leafy suburb, though it was not too far to walk into town.
The staff were friendly and accommodating, and the breakfasts were quite good.
The room was fairly small, but adequate. One criticism is the plug was missing from the washbasin. (However, being a seasoned traveller I always carry one with me!)

Room tip: Try to choose a room which faces away from the afternoon sun, as the aircon is not very powerful.

Situated in the leafy suburbs but not too far from temple road and 1.3km from Nallur Temple. We had bicycles and so this wasn't an issue.

The room wasn't large but perfectly comfortable with a door to the wrap around verandah. Excellent wifi and TV reception with BBC news. Everything else worked too (plumbing, electrics, hot shower) and all was clean and tidy.

Food was freshly cooked to order and tasty and all the staff were wonderfully helpful and accommodating.

We stayed a couple of nights and felt well rested to continue our cycle tour.

Great value, great stay.

I write thi review having scampered here after deciding to stump up a few extra dollars to move up the budget hotel chain. The difference it made was incredible. This is in the cheaper price range for hotels in Jaffna but it provides a blacony, en-suite, AC, a manned front desk with tour guide, and a fairly central location. All of these options are not available in other 'cheap' hotels and it was a godsend. I would conclude that other negative reviewers are not aware of what other poorer options are available at the price range they are searching.

A treat from start to finish; walking out of your own hot shower into a nice cool room to get dressed and then go directly out your balcony door to have a cold beer! Try doing that at other budget hotels; you cannot.

I stayed here 2 nights with my friend and our driver. The room was very clean and nice. The staff very friendly and service minded. If we wanted something they fixed it. If i would complaine for something it would bee the train outside. But i can strongly recomend this little lovly hotel.
