Where I stayed in Kandy?
Address: 83, 40-C Ampitiya Rd, Kandy 20000, Sri Lanka
I was lucky enough to get a room that day as most hotels were booked. I was finding someplace in the city or nearby, so I could visit as many places as I could on my only day in the city.
The views at Sobaya hotel were very scenic. They have very good hospitality and co-operative staff.
