If you are planning on visiting the Temple of the Tooth, the location cannot be beat. The hotel is a grand old colonial and could probably use a bit of an upgrade. Make sure you book a room on the inside and not the outside facing the street---very noisy.
The upside is the breakfast buffet and a pool.
