We flew in from Australia and we recently stayed at Hotel Opulence and all I can say is, it is an excellent hotel to stay in Colombo! It is conveniently located near the town, which was easy to get around to the shops, and restaurants and other locations. Helpful staff and owners who always went above and beyond to meet our needs and made us feel welcome. Comfortable and clean rooms with A/C, Wifi,TV,Housekeeping services and with laundry services available for extra. Highly recommend Hotel Opulence for anyone who is looking for an affordable and comfortable stay! I will definitely be returning again in the future.
My wife and I stayed here for a couple of nights at the start of our travels around Sri Lanka. The rooms are clean with TV, WiFi & your own bathroom. It is situated in a busy market district which is full of life, smells, colour and walking distance from the street food area of “Aluth Kade” The staff where helpful and friendly and any issues (The WiFi was playing up) we’re sorted promptly. The only negative is because it is next to a mosque you may be woken by the call to prayer @5am or his doesn’t last long tho. The owners are working hard and really trying to improve the facility so from the outside and some of the inside there is evidence of building work, but don’t let this put you off. Overall this is a great option, ok it isn’t the Hilton or the Shangri-La but an excellent choice, if you enjoy the culture and vibrancy of exploring a new city, especially if you’re working to a budget. We would have no hesitation in staying here again …
Perfect place to stay before catching a bus our train as within walking distance of both. Located in a quietish area of the city. Rooms are large and spotless, staff is great and even went to the train station to buy our tickets for us! Hot water and wifi both work well.
Good hotel for cheap price near the market streets, you can find teas, spicies closer to hotel, to Colombo Fort Station you need to walk 10-15 min. Owner and his staff very friendly and good guys. Thank you
It is down a small street slightly away from the train station maybe a 15 min walk. Looks like it is built in an old storage building. On arrival, I was greeted with some very friendly staff who were very helpful. The room was very good spacious comfortable and clean. I was only staying for one night and had a late flight the next day. I slept well in this hotel and found the location very good close to the markets and the red mosque. The staff were very kind and let me have a late check out so after a day of sightseeing I could return and shower before heading to the airport.
