    Pleasant stay

    My partner and I stayed at Paraiso for two nights. On arrival, our host greeted us with hot tea and bananas. The rooms did not have air conditioning, but a fan which cooled the room satisfactorily. Bathroom was also clean. There is a lookout point upstairs which had beautiful views of the hills. Our host even accommodated us for a late breakfast after we came back from our hike. Breakfast was lovely with Sri lankan dishes and fresh fruit. Getting to the town was easy via the train tracks below and was only 10-15 min walk. Overall, we enjoyed our stay here and will definitely return. Whilst the rooms were adequate, it was the niceness and accommodating nature of the host that was most appreciated. They were always helpful with a smile

    The view from the balcony was stunningly beautiful. The host family were very gracious and helpfully in finding ones way around the area. And the breakfasts! Stupendous. Room was also very nice and comfortable.

    Three days in Ella

    My wife and I stayed here for three nights and we’re very happy with the hotel and location. We had a beautiful view across the valley of little Adams Peak, Ella rock, and a waterfall as well. From the hotel you could either take a tuk-tuk to town or walk down the rail road and be in town within 15 minutes. The owner was very kind and helped us with hiking routes and transportation.

    Parisian Guest House was absolutely gorgeous with stunning views! The staff was incredible, kind, and helpful. The location is perfect (your driver can make it down the hill), but quite a short walk into town! I miss this place already!

    great place to stay in Ella

    Had an excellent stay here and would definitely book this place again! The standard is what to expect, but it was clean and it was a great service from we arrived until we left! Amazing views from the big Terrasse outside the rooms.

    Acceptable stay in Ella

    This was a strange place. For a start, the building looked half-finished. We didn’t really have a host - there seemed to be multiple people looking after the property, although all were perfectly friendly and accommodative (for example in making us a packed breakfast when we were up early to go hiking). The room, like many guest houses in Sri Lanka, was functional rather than comfortable. This one was spacious with a balcony, with an average bed/mattress and a good en suite bathroom. The view, as many others have commented, is fantastic but given that Ella is in a mountain valley, you don’t need to work too hard to find a view that’s just as good. In terms of cost it was probably a touch above average and given that the stay felt average or slightly below average, I’d say we could have done better.

    Ok but noisy

    The room was ok, the homestay was under construction. The hosts were nice and helpful. The problem was that the place is right beside a temple and the pray at 5:30am and 5:30pm through speakers quite loudly. It is located right beside the train rails and it is noisy when it goes through.

    Amazing views

    Wonderful views and the team cooked lovely dinner. Also happy to make earlier to fit our schedule. Shame there's no aircon. Quick walk into town down the train tracks
