We only stayed in the Cinnamon Citadel for one night. It is by the river with a beautiful jungle outlook, lovely pool, and very comfortable rooms. This is another open plan hotel much like others in Sri Lanka. The hotel is about a 20 minute drive from the centre of Kandy which is both good and bad. We were a little disappointed with Kandy given the hype in travel blogs and magazines about this place. So being away from the traffic and noise of the city was good. however, for a short stay I would recommend staying on the hill overlooking the city or at one of the hotels around the lake which is in the centre of Kandy. An early morning walk around the lake is very nice and the Buddhist Museum was fascinating. Other than than there really is not much to see in this city.
Old buses emitting diesel fumes and large trucks seem to fill the roads. I would think 1 night in Kandy would do. A much better option is to head for the highlands and stay in the tea plantations.
