Our list of cheap hotels in Ella you can consider when you visit Sri Lanka.
Ella is one of the most touristy places in Sri Lanka so finding a cheap hotel to stay is a bit easy and tricky at the same time as budget accommodations can get fully booked during peak season. It is advisable to book an accommodation in advance. I stayed at Adhi’s Place Ella which is close to Ella Train Station and just about less than 10 minutes walk to the town center. I stayed for a night and paid Php1,300 (USD23) for a room good for two people.
Adhi’s Place Ella
Adhi’s Place Ella is situated a little uphill along with other guesthouses. Its location on google map is wrong so you might get lost. Just ask around and you should be able to locate it. If you see the Ella Police Station, there’s a way uphill with a lot of signs – Adhi’s Place sign board is one of them. Book here.
