The fact that it is a historic building made this hotel has it own charm. The room rate is not cheap per Sri Lanka standard and also not compatible with the room condition/services that you would expect with that rate, but still, worth to try this hotel. Though, the hotel staffs speak good english.
Pro: Free wifi but only at lobby area. Room is clean though a bit run down. Location is superb, right in city center and all shopping area and pizza hut/KFC either right opposite or walking distance. The Buddha tooth relic temple & Kandy lake are right opposite too. There is a swimming pool in the hotel, good size to dip in.
Con: As mentioned by other review, most probably you will wake up at 5am, due to the ceremony in the temple, also by the traffic noise. You may avoid if you go for room opposite those facing roadside, but you don't get the view then.
