  • First of all the Hotel was listed on the website as being 1,000 LKR per night for a single guest, but there are actually no single rooms, so you need to book a double and pay 2,000 LKR. Secondly my room and bathroom were really dirty. The bedsheets were stained, the light in the bathroom didn't work, there were cobwebs, and a colony of hundreds of ants behind my toilet. I understand you get what you pay for at budget hotels, but I've stayed at much better places for less in Sri Lanka and India.

  • Our stay at Boa vista was very nice!!! There is a super-friendly owner with his wife, which took care about us. Besides that he is very funny person-allways smiling and joking. Romms are clean and for quite reasonable price. In more expensive rooms there is beautiful overview to the lake. There is also possibility to hire a nice bike. It is not direct in the city centre, but it is very close to all the important sightseeings of Anuradhapura.

  • Boa Vista is a nice place hidden away from the new town of Anuradhapura and very close to the ancient ruins. But it is a little expensive for what it offers. Also the breakfast and bike rentals are a bit too expensive. Other than that, very helpful staff and excellent location.
