Places to Stay in Jaffna Town and Jaffna Town Hotels

The Biggest Issue that You need to Sort out before Visiting Jaffna;Place to Stay in Jaffna Town or City

If you read my ‘Young Beautiful Jaffna, She is Still a Virgin’ post, I have mentioned that, one of my objectives of this trip is to  get familiar with  Jaffna as I want to take my family to Jaffna next time.

Therefore I went to several Jaffna Town Hotels to find the conditions of these places so that I can select the best place to stay in Jaffna town or city when I come to Jaffna again with my family.

Of course, I stayed in Ari’s house with our office colleagues and it was quite a good place for us but Ari was kind enough to take me around to find good place to stay in Jaffna.

Assess Yourself First

As I mentioned earlier, we stayed in none A/C house and we had no issues with that.

We really enjoy  Ari’s house and its facilities but If you are a person who does not like heat waves, then you must carefully select your hotels in jaffna.

According to my experience, During the end of April, It is quite ok to travel in mornings and evenings.

If you try to travel in-between 11:30 AM to 3:30PM, it is bit hard to go out under the sun in Jaffna as heat weaves are bit strong.

Of course native people does not feel this but people like us feel the difference quite obviously.

Therefore, if you travel with  family or you come from overseas , then better look for a air conditioned please to stay in Jaffna town.

Trip Advisor’s Recommendation on Jaffna Town Hotels

I do not want to comment on Trip advisor rating and recommendations as I did not stay in any of these hotels in jaffna but visited Cosy Restaurant Hotel and Tilko Jaffna City Hotel and Green Grass Hotel.

Ari took us to have lunch in Cosy Hotel and Restaurants. I guess, Ari wanted a give us a decent lunch 🙂

Since it took a lot of time to make and server, I told the staff to show me the rooms of the hotel and the prices.

IMG_3101It look very decent and the price are very reasonable.

Therefore I booked this hotel for my Brother- in -law and an Uncle who came from Austria(I did this book when I went back to colombo).

When they arrived, the Cosy Hotel and Restaurants A/C did not work at all.

Then the Management of the Hotel gave them another rooms but A/C was not good enough so they checked out and went to Green Grass Hotel.

Of course, my Brother- in- law was bit piss off with me since I recommended this hotel and they loved Green Grass Hotel. They stayed 2 nights.

Anyway, Cosy Hotel and Restaurant took good amount of time to serve our Lunch and most of our colleagues enjoyed the food but my personal opinion is that it is very expensive.

Please refer the bills attached on this post. You can eat very good food from Jaffna much more cheaper than this. Believe me!!!! 🙂

 Summary of Cosy Hotel and Restaurant.

In summary, if you are not looking for  above 2 stars hotels, then this is good place as it is located in Town itself so that you have access all the necessaries.

If you do not mind to spend a little bit of extra money for lunch or dinner, then why NOT have a lunch or dinner in this restaurants.

If I go with my family, I will not stay in this hotel but If I go along, I will stay.

Tilko Jaffna City Hotel: Place to Stay in Jaffna Town or City: Jaffna Town Hotels

in my opinion, Tilko Jaffna City hotel is located in one of the best place in Jaffna town.

Jaffna Fort is situated in walking distance and you can walk to the main Jaffna town effortlessly.

I could not see the rooms of the Hotel as it was fully booked on that day.

Note: Ari is going inside to the Hotel like big Gun 🙂

Please note that, they maintain two tariffs. One for out of season and other one for season. Call them before booking them. Ask the off season price as it is bit cheap.

My personal advice is, if you do not go with kids, then book ROOM ONLY so that you can take your meals from outside for very cheap price.

Staff is very friendly and they answered all my queries without grumbling 🙂

In end of April 2015, Green Grass Hotel was renovating.

Actually, it was adding more room for the hotel and upgrading the existing room and facilities.

 Summary of Place to Stay in Jaffna Town and Jaffna Town Hotels

Today, 20th of Feb 2016, I am planning to visit Jaffna with my family during August school holidays. If I go with my wife and kids, I definitely try book Tilko Jaffna City Hotel and then my second choice is Green Grass Hotel (as my uncle and brother- in -laws highly recommended the place).

I like Tilko Jaffna City hotel due its location and it goes with my budget.

I think, it is decent enough to stay with a family. Failing, then I will book Green Grass Hotel as it is a same standard hotel that my family may like.

If I visit Jaffna alone, then I try to stay in Ari’s House again 🙂  otherwise I will book Cosy Hotel and Restaurant , purely due to  the cheap price and the location
