Built during British colonial times to archetypal design standards... and seems to have barely changed since. The rooms are GOOD VALUE for money and you get a nice feeling of being in the colonies! If you don't know means then you might not appreciate the "hanging in there" nature of the hotel and might notice some of the dilapidation!
Central location and within spitting distance of the tooth temple; easy walk to the bus or train station.
Kandy is quite bad for getting hassled by con artists and tuk tuk drivers demanding extravagent fares. Keep your wits about you and agree a fare of no more than Rs 50 per km and you'll be fine.
