Gem Inn II is a bit outside of Kandy, above a main road, but away from the heavy traffic you have in Kandy town. With a tuktuk for 200 LKR you are in Kandy.
The rooms are spacy and clean, not well maintainded, but that seems to be standard in Sri Lanka.
The breakfast is average, toast, fried egg and tea, some fruit.
The staff is friendly and helpful.
