Hotel Lux Etoiles
Ranked #23 of 50 Jaffna B&B and Inns
Reviewed March 13, 2014

We stayed there for two nights while visiting Jaffna and the area 6-8 january. The rooms were og, the food ok and the serwise all right. The hotel is in walking distance to the Hindu Tempel Nallur Kandadaswarmy - and the hotel has a nice swining pool.

we had a clean and quiet room with a small balcony facing south, could sleep with open window (except in the 3rd night: Hindu festival with lots of noise), no moscitos at night (but also no moscito net!). The room was a bit small but well equipped with A/C, TV and a good mattress. Bathroom was large enough with a (small) bath tub and a shower curtain (!) very seldom in Asia...
Excellent service and rich breakfast (we had to pay an extra of 535 Rps p.P.), you can choose between continental and Sri Lankan style. But the dining room has no athmosphere at all...
Swimming pool big and with very clean water, but environment under construction and some nasty moscitos.
Problems with WiFi: no coverage in the room, only in the reception area. The router is old and had connectivity problems with my Windows 7 Notebook, but no problems with Android smartphones.

Lux Etoiles is well located in a quiet district of Jaffna near the Nallur temple. The hotel is not luxurious but very good for Jaffna and very clean and exceptionally good value. The staff were friendly, pizzas good and wifi works well in the lobby. They were also good at providing advice on getting around Jaffna and introduced us to a guide, Pili, an elderly gentleman who lived in the city throughout the war, who he took us on a tour of the north coast and proved a mine of information. We ended up at the navy restaurant at the Hammenhiel. It was an incredibly interesting day and we saw sights, both related to the war and much older, that we would never have found by ourselves. Due to the post war military activity in the area a guide seems essential as roads close periodically, signposts are few and outside the city English is not spoken much.

Great experience, warm and helpful staff, delicious food, Air conditioning, ice cold beer and a lovely pool. We would definitely go back there. Yes, there were things that could be changed - mosquito nets for guests who want them, a better shower. However rooms were spotless, the location was central to the places we wanted to go to and prices were affordable. (We had just walked out of a pricey little boutique hotel that was lovely but had no heart and unhelpful or clueless staff). Exceptional service provided by Mr. Radhakrishnan, a true professional.

Wasn't up to my expectation, Staff really tried hard to please, but coming from Switzerland,my husband and I were disappointed, we thought, it would be more comfortable than it was :( had to walk round to door to switch on the only light in room to use toilet in the night, no bedside lighting; shower very basic; maybe we'd go back when reconstruction is finished with better access to swimming pool;no phone in room, had to walk to Reception, whenever we needed anything, it seemed as if the room was hastily assembled a day before our arrival, minibar was plonked onto a bedside table, not joking!!!!

After a few days in Jaffna, any foreigner starts to crave for some more familiar food. Search no further and have a sea-food pizza (but ask them to remove ALL the chillies as they do not belong on a pizza) and have it with a chilled beer (another rarity in Jaffna to find that in a restaurant) in their airconditioned restaurant. Believe me, it is one of the best pizza's you can get in Sri Lanka - says a serious pizza lover.

The food was awesome - especially the pizza! But they will give you any kind of cuisine and it's all good. Room was basic and tiny but both room and bathroom were super clean. Walking distance to the Nallur Temple and Rio Ice Cream. Very friendly and courteous service. Will definitely go there again.
