“One of the best budget hotels”
Reviewed 2 December 2011

Awesome view and overall great stay (we stayed in an upper floor room). Can't really complain of anything, was really a good experience.
Very nice, friendly and helpful staff.
Perhaps one of the best budget hotels that you can get in the area.

The owner is not a very nice person. My guide booked top two rooms with aircon. When we arrived we got side rooms without aircon and tried to palm these off to us for same price. Rooms were average but one was flooded. When we decided to find a better hotel the Manager went mad! He any my guide were screaming at each other and almost came to blows. He abused us and threatened to report me to Immigration using my passport number.

He seems nice on the surface, but a horrible man when he doesnt get his own way.

Be careful if you decide to stay here as if you complain, you may not get out of the country!!

Very friendly staff. The manager was great and arranged a trip for us. Just tell him what you want to do and your budget requirements and he will do the rest. If you travel to Yala national park (which is a must) make sure he books a room and driver with Elephant Camp Guest House. Spotless, fully functioning room and great home cooked for from Mr Jayathunga and his lovely wife. In Marisa, try to get Mother's House for the best value on the beach.

Room Tip: Avoid the bungalow if you can

A very friendly hotel where the staff were so welcoming and friendly. When I arrived the hotel was overbooked and I was moved to the penthouse apartment-HUGE and a fabulous terrace looking a long way over the valley. A lovely couple of days. Good value for money

certainly worth the money you pay, exeptionally helpful staff, (i think it was the owner of the hotel). He would drive us where we wanted to go, even help us get pay as u go tel card.

it coulb be a bit cleaner, but one would not expect more for that money you pay.

Great view!

Room Tip: it is not in walking distance from Kandy center, but has a great view from the terrace!

Kandy View Hotel is a very nice, cozy and reliable. Perfect place to stay, especially if you travel alone or in small groups. Was really impressed by its hospitality: it is REALLY about its guests, I felt really safe and welcome in.
The view from the top floor is stunning.
Evenings manager cooks delicious diner for guests, and where are always interesting travelers to have nice chats with. They organize great excursions, walks & sightseeing for affordable prices!
Have absolutely enjoyed time at Kandy while staying there, will be glad to back again.
