Very good 8.0
A pleasant stay
Had a pleasant stay here. Service is as expected. The hotel location is steps away from Kandy lake which is great. Staff is helpful as I was helped with booking a driver who drove me to all must see places. Basic breakfast.

Clean, comfortable and great breakfast
I loved staying here. The room and bathroom were pristine clean. The owner and staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was really delicious on a nice rooftop setting. The TV doesn't have many channels but the wifi works ok. Location is slightly hard to find if on foot but only 15 min walk into central Kandy. Would stay again.

Exceptional 10.0
The owner is a very kind man. He was very accommodating as was the staff. They serve great meals and even helped me secure travel to Ella. The one thing I'd note is I paid extra to have a mountain view hotel room, which in all honesty does not look out toward the mountain. It is far right of the balcony. Otherwise a wonderful stay!

Very good 8.0
The owners were very accommodating. There were issues with the tv and the outlets, but the owner resolved the problems quickly. A very nice rooftop view for breakfast. This property is definitely worth the value.

Great location, top service!
King of Kandy is a fantastic place to stay. The manager is a lovely gentleman, always happy to assist or provide advice. As they were quiet because of the timing of my trip I was upgraded free of charge. The food was fantastic, a lovely spread for breakfast and I would recommend eating dinner there. The roof terrace restaurant has a superb view of Kandy especially for Poya. The location is great but is up a short but steep hill so you would need to be mobile or get a tuk tuk up. Guests can use the pool at the neighbouring Suisse Hotel for a small fee. I highly recommend stay at King of Kandy when you are in Kandy.
