"Hashtag28" is delightfully designed for travelers who seek a cozy, quiet, charming apartment. Just 2 km away from the historical Kandy city, the place offers an excellent experience for your money. Providing a relaxed atmosphere in a quiet neighborhood, it is a perfect get away for two who need a time away from the hustle and bustle of the city life. The Temple of the Tooth, the Botanical Gardens, and many historical temples and places of interest are close by. (Scooter for rent on premises).
“YOU HAVE TO STAY HERE! If you are visiting Kandy, Maya and Gamini's place is absolutely perfect! It's just up the hill from the crazy town centre and noise, the veiws are gorgeous and there is a great restaurant and supermarket just 10 minutes walk down the road. The place itself is very clean, super comfortable with a lovely bathroom and hot shower. The kitchen is also very cute with a little fridge and cooker. The best part though is Maya and Gamini. Their Sri Lankan breakfast is delicious and plentiful and we loved spending an hour and a half talking with them over breakfast both mornings. They have so many helpful tips and also were kind enough to book us a great driver down to Nuwara Eliya when the train was fully booked! Thank you both for having us, we hope we can stay again one day!”
The Square Peg is a quirky hotel located halfway up the legendary Bahirawakanda hill. It is within a 4 minute drive from the kandy Railway station (1.1km) 10 minutes by foot. 1Km to the Temple of the tooth and the Kandy lake. The rooftop lounge exclusive for inhouse guest offers breathtaking views of the entire city of Kandy including the historic Temple of the tooth, the Kandy lake, the old Bogambara prison and the Hanthana mountain range.
“The Hotel / Loft is located above the roofs of Kandy in the immediate vicinity of the famous Buddha statue. From the roof terrace you have an incredibly great view of the city, which makes the breakfast served there a real highlight. The rooms are new and modern. Large shower including hair dryer and towels available. Air conditioning works very well and lets you sleep at night with pleasant temperatures. The host is very friendly and tries to give good tips. The beautiful view naturally has the price that you are not directly in the city center and have to walk about 15-20 minutes to get there. As an alternative, there is the "PickMe" app, which, like "Uber", allows you to order TukTuks or cars for very little money (we paid around € 1 for the journey between the hotel and the train station). Another advantage is that the price is already fixed here and you don't have to argue with TukTuk drivers whether you pay more or less. All in all, the accommodation is highly recommended!”
With Sri Lanka becoming an ever more popular location to visit, finding the perfect place to stay becomes even harder. We make life easy for you by providing you with arguably the most convenient and comfortable Airbnb in Kandy. Use our place as a base and explore the surrounding areas as most of our guests do! Sigiriya and Nuwara Eliya are close by and the popular Ella train trip can be taken from Kandy as well (ask us for tips on how to avoid the crowd and get a seat).
“Ezra was away so his gorgeous Mother took care of us. She was so incredibly welcoming and kind and her English perfect (I believe she is quite multilingual!). The apartment is stunning with great style, spotlessly clean with lots of lovely added touches (including lovely bed linen!). It’s a great location, very close to the station and all amenities. I would highly recommend a stay here!”
