This was hands down the best hotel experience I've had traveling abroad. Everyone was extremely kind and accommodating, they offered us a free ride from the train station, and the driver they worked with (Praboda) was looking out for us from the moment we got into the city. For four days it felt like coming home to escape heat and...

We stayed at Villa 49 for 3 nights during the Esala Perahera festival. The staff really make you feel at home and are so helpful with everything. Our 4 year old son absolutely loved staying here, and had lots of fun playing with the cook's granddaughter. He cried when we had to leave! They serve continental and Sri Lankan breakfast,...

Perfect for one night stop in Kandy. Within walking distance of central Kandy and Temple of the Tooth. Staff were passionate and enthusiastic. Room was spacious and fairly well appointed although en suite in family room was tiny. Breakfast was excellent especially the local option and the home made jams.

Hotel location is very central in Kandy, rooms are big, staff is very very charming. Especially the owner: we talk togethere a long time about Sri Lanka and its culture. Warmly recommend this stay! They offer free pickup from the train station. They helped us prepare our lunch with our fruits from the market on the day of departure.

I spent only a night at Villa 49 but Shanani the hostess is great. It began even before I arrived there, just via her email responses I got a good vibe. She even arranged for her driver, Praboda, to pick me up from the train station free of charge. Her staff are very nice too. The place is close to...

I have spent 5 days at Villa 49 in Kandy because it is a central place from where I could make my excursions. Villa 49 is a little place but the room was big, with a big bathroom, and airconditioned . It was very clean. The staff was very nice and warmhearted, always with a smile in their face. The...

My husband and I decided to visit Kandy because we'd learnt that it was scenic, and Villa 49 exemplified this - we were received with beautiful scenery, warm smiles and lovely tea, and we really appreciated how earnest and attentive all their staff members were. Breakfast was something we looked forward to everyday! The toast...it was absolutely the best toast...

We spent two nights here at this lovely little place. Because of my knee we had a room at the first floor, which was really nice. We liked having a couch to sit on, a wooden floor. All was very clean. You are in a quiet area but can walk to the temple of the Tooth in 10 minutes. Had...

A warm welcome, personal service, an attractive, comfortable, spacious room (even space for my yoga mat) plus delicious freshly cooked meals - and we could only stay for 2 nights! There's a pretty little garden at the back, with tables when the weather is dry enough. Parking is limited but we managed OK. Highly recommended.
