Hotels in Kandy are many: there is an elegant five-star, medium category and the best budget hostels for backpackers. Prices for beds in hostels start from 800 rupees (300 rubles), accommodation in a budget room for two can be found from 1300 rupees (500 rubles).

Problems with finding accommodation, although it is better to search and book the hotel in advance. The fact that in Kandy there is no place of concentration of hotels in a tourist area, as is the case in beach resorts. Here to find accommodation on the spot, will have to bypass half the city, but it is not so easy, because here, the life, the roads filled with traffic. If will be so that you will be taken to Kandy without a pre-booked hotel, in this case, it is best to find a cafe with Internet to connect to the network and try to book. Another option – contact a taxi or tuk-tuks who can offer you related hotels for a Commission. But in this case, carefully follow the location, otherwise you can bring in the most margin. You, of course, will assure that this place is very close to the centre, but believe the taxi drivers or tuk-tuks in such matters, nor to howl case impossible.

We, the authors, have had the experience of finding a hotel in Kandy on the spot without pre-payment. Arriving in Kandy on a motorcycle in the second half of the day was spent a few hours searching, and the few times accidentally I had to break the rules, as there are one-way roads. Got a few of the hotels offer very high prices or have been filled. The result had to book a hotel through the smartphone via the mobile Internet, which here is disgusting. Managed to find a cheap Guesthouse within walking distance from the city center, and in fact we were the only tourists there. But without booking in advance and subsequent aid of a host who orientated, like to go, we would definitely not have been able to find.

Find and book accommodation in Kandy can on these sites or via the search form. All sites have Russian interface and Russian-speaking customer support, numerous real guests reviews. And in Agoda and Booking are bonus system:

Regarding the choice of location of hotels, the perfect option will be located within walking distance to the city center, artificial lake. It was around the lake in full swing, all tourist and cultural life, all the sights, and if you don't want to fork out for a taxi or tuk-tuk, better choose a hotel in the centre. If you want the hotel to a stunning view of the city, you can choose a hotel on the slopes around the center, but specify when choosing the room where the window will go. To choose a hotel by location, you can choose hotels on our map Kandy:

Not sure what injury is there. Rather rather sure that they are not, because there is the entrance and ticket control on-street storage no. Maybe there is something in the office selling tickets, but it is unlikely that the Sri Lankans before this would have thought of. If you really look for a place where to leave things, it is best to railway station so should be storage, as on all other stations. Well, in case you can try to negotiate for a nominal amount of staff offices for the sale of tickets or to go into the first hotel and the clerk to negotiate. The last version working and tested 100%.
And generally I on your place would think if you can master this route without lodging. I can understand if it's a tour or car with driver. But to come in a new strange city, to find a place where to leave your Luggage, find the cashier, to get to the entrance, navigate through the vast territory... besides, you need something to get around distances. Will have to find a tuk-tuk for the whole day. IMHO, knowing how difficult travel in hot countries, I would come in the evening, slept, and bright and early the next day I began to explore the Park. ...

Thank you very much for the reply. The fact that we were coming and so in the morning, so will spend the night in Dambulla, and was planning to rent a tuk tuk for the whole day.
About things have already booked a cheap guest house, where they leave it at that. )) And I hope the night will be in Kandy, because if you come to Polonnaruwa in 10 hours then to 16 hours the time I think that would be enough to see the most important thing, especially on a tuk tuk. ...

Well, in principle Yes, 6 hours on a tuk-tuk. Determine for yourself the most important thing to look at. I hope our guide to Polonnaruwa read. ...
