Hotel Jaffna

Jaffna Lodges.

If you are visiting Jaffna you can find different kinds of accommodation like hotels, lodges, villas and private homes that can suit your pleasant stay. The cheapest accommodation facility is being offered by the Jaffna lodges that are located outside of the Jaffna town.

These lodges are functioning for to serve the common people who are travelling to Jaffna for a short visit on business or official works. Here you can expect much comfort as hotels as they are meant for resting and safe stay. Most of them had been registered with the local government bodies.

They offer common bath rooms for gents and ladies separately. They usually provide a clean bed, a table and a chair with a ceiling fan only and no A/C facility will be available in these places. Ask the manager whether they can provide you with mosquito net to protect you from the dangerous fever carrying mosquitoes. Otherwise cover you well with blankets to protect you from their bites.
Some of them allow you to order meals and beverages from their small canteens if the lodge is big enough to accommodate plenty of people. Otherwise you can tell the bell boy to buy your food from a nearby road side restaurant.

Also out of the town you can find small lodges where 3/4 people have to share a room room with separate beds. These beds may not be comfortable for foreigners. Specially their bath rooms and Asian style toilets are fitted separately away from the rooms and are shared by all the guests who are staying there.

Inside your lodge you can find a TV in the common place and enjoy it as you don't have much night time entertainment facility in Jaffna town, or you can go for an Indian Tamil movie at a nearby movie hall may have A/C if not will have adequate ventilation through electric fans.

You can make international calls from your lodge or from a nearby communication center. First ask their calling rate per minute as it may vary from place to place.

For transport you can find the trishaw (Tuk Tuk) that stands next to your lodge or use public transport busses. When hiring the trishaw do it for a round trip as they used to charge along with it whether you are coming back or not.

Also you can check with the local YMCA for accommodation, if you are a member in this organization. It is located on the main street near to the Jaffna secretariat.

In Colombo also you can find lodges that provide cheaper lodging facility. Some place may have name as lodge but it can provide you service as a single star hotel. These places don't provide rooms’ reserving facility. Just go to that place and ask if there are any rooms available for rent.
