Days Inn-Kandy
Ranked #44 of 438 Kandy B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 1, 2013

Days Inn is located up on a hill, maybe 5 minutes walk from Kandy lake. The rooms are simple but good enough. The staff is very friendly and they helped us organize our trip to Sigiriya and Negombo, the driver they recommended us was probably the most helpful and honest person we met in Sri Lanka. The hotel is far from the train station, so make sure you agree the price with the tuk tuk driver in advance.
Definitely recommend this hotel for your stay in Kandy, just watch out for the monkeys in the morning, who sometimes try to get inside the house, but that is definitely part of the fun.

The guest house was a immaculate budget stay place, super location, good view, great rooms...free wifi and wonderful staff. we paid $40 for triple bedroom. Service was great, we were allowed to use the kitchen and also instruct the cook regarding our own customised meals. This is was my best budget stay ever across the globe.

Room Tip: Take on ground floor

The standard Days Inn is up a hill from Kandy lakeside; 600 metres or so away is the Days Inn Family apartment and this is where the six of us spent two very satisfactory nights.
The position was delightful with a tree filled gully just off to our right, a great view and a refreshing (some are not) swimming pool a short flight of steps in front.
There were two double beds and a set of bunks in the apartment as well as ample lounging around area, a fridge, kettle and a small cooker. Ideal for the self contained group.
As others have indicated the staff were very friendly and helpful when we saw them (which was really only at the start and end of the stay)
Distance to Kandy was fine for us with a 150 - 200 rupee tuk tuk ride getting us to the Queens Hotel and Temple of the Tooth in about ten minutes and the walk along the lakeside a pleasure

This was the first of my two stops in Kandy. The place is very nice and the staff helpful. The room was comfortable and clean. We managed to buy out tickets for the traditional dancing show from here too which saved hassle when we got there (however the show was disappointing) The location is a bit of a hassle as its up in the hillside which means you have to get tuk tuks to the centre and back. I did have a tuk tuk driver friend of his drive me to the tea museum (a long way) only to find out it was closed, he took me all the way to a working tea factory, then to the train station to book my train ticket, and back to town. He didn't charge any extra which was good.

We stayed in the apartment which is just away from the guest house. For our family, it was great to have the space to spread out. Having stayed in guest houses and homestays the kids were excited to have open access to a pool ( bit chilly for adults at 7.00 but they didn't care) and cable TV, of all things.
The furnishings were tasteful and it felt very homely.
You could potentially self cater here and we did for breakfast given the only " con" of this facility, it is a 15 min rickshaw ride ( rs 250 was the standard price) into town and there are no places to eat or shop for provisions nearby.
The manager and staff were extremely helpful and friendly too.

This welcoming place is a great budget option. Our large room was clean and comfortable, with a table and chairs out the front, tv and mosquito nets. There is also a great terrace at the front of the guesthouse where we ate most of our meals. The staff were friendly and helpful, once driving us for free in a tuk tuk to a massage centre because it was after dark. They also let us have use of the kitchen one afternoon when we wanted to make our own food. Note that on the instructions after you make a booking here, it says the guesthouse is within walking distance, but you will need to catch a tuk tuk (which is cheap). While it is only a 10 - 15 minute walk, it is up a steep hill and no one would want to do that with luggage. Also, this guesthouse was advertised as having a pool. The pool isn't actually at the hostel, but has the use of another guesthouse nearby. Overall, it was an enjoyable stay and I would recommend Days Inn to anyone visiting Kandy.

Dear Madam,
Thank you for staying with us and writing your observation and experience about our facility. In the web page we show the pool which is attached to the apartment. It is also one of our facilities for family stay. Up to 5 or 6 people can sleep in the apartment and it is close by and those who stay .at the Guest House can also use the swimming pool free of charge.
Anyway it is not a big issue and most of our guests use the pool all the time.
