Kandy has many good guesthouses, and the more comfortable hotels often occupy spectacular hilltop or riverside locations.

In the city centre, the highest concentration of accommodation is along or just off Anagarika Dharmapala Mawatha and Saranankara Rd (buses 654, 655 and 698 will get you there, or just ask for ‘Sanghamitta Mawatha’ at the clock tower bus stop).

Most places have in-house restaurants.
