We have created a top 10 list of budget hotels in Kandy from which you can choose the most suitable for the duration of your stay.

Kandy is situated in the center of Sri Lanka and there are plenty of affordable hotels and guest houses.

You will be able to find a place to stay in the center of the town at higher prices and more economic solutions few kilometers away from the main town.

If you prefer to experience the Sri Lankan local day to day life, a great idea is to book a hotel just few km outside of the city and take a ride with a local tuk-tuk (rickshaw) to get into town.

It might be an extra cost, but on the other hand you will also definitely save money on room expenses, as the prices of guest houses and hotels outside town, are usually lower (luxury hotels are an exception).
