We stayed one night at this place and paid 2000R for a double bed room (non-A/C, no breakfast). The price is adequate since the room is clean and offers you anything you need. The staff is friendly but tries to talk you into tours with tuc tuc drivers they know. We chose the public bus to go to Sigiriya which... More
