Where to stay in Jaffna

Jaffna offers a scattered few accommodations for its visitors. They primarily take the form of guesthouses, with some more refined as well as some very basic options on the major boulevards and side streets close to the station. Take a peek close to the main green areas in town for some standard, purpose-built hotels, with larger rooms and a few more amenities. Alternatively, look around the peninsula for some more rural places to stay, primarily located near the coast.
