Reviewed 8 August 2010

Found this to be an excellent place. Safe environment and Mrs. Padmini is a very friendly woman. Price of 1500-2000 rupees ($15 to $20 Aust. Dollars) includes daily breakfast, and room with attached bath. My room had cold water only but who needs hot showers in Sri Lanka.
About a 10 minute walk to the centre of Kandy.
Will definitely be staying here again.

Reviewed 10 August 2008

We were double booked, so our normal hotel placed us here for a night.

Salon Dil is overpriced, wanting 2,000 rupees per night for rooms with no hot water, but settling(!) for an overpriced 2,000 rupees for two rooms. One room has a balcony, rearward facing, with excellent views up the hillside.

The acess to the upper floors is via a rather narrow spiral staircase - hard to negotiate with backpacks on - but the beds are comfy enough. Most beds have mosquito nets, all are basic but comfortable.

Limited hot water. Our rooms didn't have it, but it is available in a downstairs room.

I sound critical, but, apart from price, which we found to be steep, this is a pretty normal small lodging house with decent public areas and adequate comfort.

It's up a steepish lane. Well worth hiring a tuk tuk to get back after a stroll in town. Expect to pay about 200 rupees from the town centre.
