We stayed here for two nights in a first floor room. Overall it was well decorated with good view. We had buffet dinners and breakfasts which were very well prepared and plentiful, though on one occasion the roast pork was too tough. The hotel is situated on a hill with very narrow and winding approach road. It is not easy... More

Hotel Topaz was one of the 4 Hotels I stayed in Srilanka. I absolutely loved it. Really comfortable and was fortunate enough to witness the Rains in Kandy at that time. It was complete Bliss. The panoramic views were absolutely stunning and loved the view from the restaurant and the Reception/lobby are. The only thing missing was a nice balcony... More

I booked this hotel in Booking.com because of its stunning mountain view. Fairly speaking, the room was not bad. It was spacious and clean. BUT, the staff appeared to be indifferent and detached. The price was not cheap, comparing with other hotels in Kandy, and the service was way way disappointed. And they even charged for the room wifi, it... More

We stayed at the newly renovated Hotel Topaz for 1 night in June and we were surprised at the transformation of this hotel. The panoramic views were absolutely stunning, both in the common areas and from our room which overlooked the green hills of Kandy. The rooms were beautiful- simple, tasteful, and modern. The bathrooms were fairly large and had... More

My first impression of this hotel was that it seemed very new and modern. Apparently it is actually quite old, so it's been renovated not long ago. The room was beautiful. Very European/North American-looking. The front desk service was excellent, as well. However, after my initial positive reaction, a few weaknesses began to stand out. For example, every sound from...

Comfortable, clean and modern room. Fantastic view. It is one of the oldest hotels in Kandy which shows in the pool and restaurant area. Rooms must have been modernized not long ago. As the hotel is located on a hill, it is not close to the town centre. However, a rickshaw is only £1.50 so it is easy enough to... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Topaz was built in 1976 and fashioned after a much loved gem stone found in Sri Lanka. Considering its situation in the hill capital of Kandy, the last royal stronghold in the country, Hotel Topaz is considered the jewel in the crown of Kandy.Nestled amidst lush tropical greenery, surrounded by the distinctive Knuckles Mountain range and Bible Rock, enveloped in the cool winds blowing through the mountains, Hotel Topaz offers something for everyone.The short distance away from the city centre itself, lends the hotel and its guests maximum accessibility no matter what the choice of activity is. However Hotel Topaz offers guests a tranquil setting and the option of exploring the city’s rich heritage in style and comfort.The warm and personal service serves to truly bring out the widely famed Sri Lankan hospitality. Guests at Hotel Topaz are made to feel at home, and explore the surrounding gardens or have a cocktail or high-tea on our famous rooftop terrace with its 360 degree view of the city and its hills. ... more   less
