After 3 weeks thrvarious places i Sri Lanka, i stayes here for 3 nights when I needed to return to Colombo. Waje, the manager, was the nicest, most aurhentic, flexible and helpful person I had encountered so far in tne hotel industry here, and maybe beyond.
I had to check out before anyone normally comes on duty, and he had the kitchen make me a sack breakfast to go the night before. And when i came downstairs, he was up and waiting anyway.
He sent out for English newspapers for me, at their expense, and immediately offered to change my room when the TV stopped working. He gave me sughestions on what and where to avoid. I felt like he cared.
It is a 2 *, and generally caters to the local population. If you are good with that, you will be very safe and comfortable here.
( that said, it was much more expensive to book on booking.com, so book.here instead)
