If you're looking for somewhere cheap, and with a bit of history when staying in Kandy, Olde Empire is the place for you.
I got a single room for LKR649/night and it was a decent clean room. Like most Sri Lankan hotels, the matress was thin, so it wasn't the best night's sleep ever and having to share a bathroom was a bit of a pain. No internet or wi-fi, but fast internet cafes nearby for LKR50/hour.

The food served downstairs for all meals was excellent and very reasonably priced, so overall I would say this place is a decent bet.
