Not centrally located but still nice hotel. The rooms are old fashioned and very large. Nice balcony overlooking the hillside of Kandy. The breakfast leaves a lot to be desired and I am not even sure what the juice was that we were given, one sip told us enough that we didn't drink it. We took a day trip with the hotel and thoroughly enjoyed it and the owner's wife was really nice. Good value for the money and despite it's location, it's a nice walk into town.

... and quite a few monks. After the temple the guide took us up to a hill yo see some elephants that were used for the parades. We then headed into town. It was around 6pm and it was so busy. Mainly people going home from work. We headed to the market for some street snacks. We then went for a few drinks, first in the Queens hotel bar (like at home! ) then in a bar just called the pub! A young local then approached us and said we pay too much in tourist bars and hecan ...
