Hotels and Kandy, where to choose a hotel
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.

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.
