  • This was the best shopping experience we had in Colombo, but that is not saying much! It is quite a good place to go to while away a couple of hours killing time.  more »
  • A hip shopping option in colombo with a bar and many food stalls in a relaxed setting. The quality is pretty good and the prices are on the higher side owing to patronage by expats and tourists. Recom...  more »
  • The thing I love the most about Odel is how organized it is. The building is well planned out with properly designated shopping sections. However, the reason I am giving a rating of 4/5 is that the go...  more »

  • A really hip shopping mall in the heart of Colombo. I went to buy tea of which there were a ton of choices at very attractive rates. The mall had plenty of other shopping memorabilia for tourists and a range of books on Sri Lanka. We'll maintained and cozy mall. We'll worth a visit if you are in Colombo.
  • There is a big variety of clothes for men and women as well as they have a big collection of clothes for kids too with many more toys. Also, there are lots of fashionable handbags, shades, shoes, perfume and fancy accessories like earning, bangle and bracelets. Service staff is also giving us a very friendly service on choosing & matching clothes.
  • One of the best places to shop in Colombo. If you are visiting Colombo and looking for a quick stop shopping experience, this is probably the best option. They got everything ! Branded clothes, perfumes, watches, and what not. Also they have a special collection of Sri Lankan ornaments which are perfect souvenirs and gift for your loved ones. The prices are not too high compared to many other high end shopping stores in Colombo. But for the convenience of a one stop shopping center and the quality of services provided, I would say this is a very good option. They have a variety of food stores and a cafe within the premises which makes it more convenient and attracts many more tourists and locals. Could be very crowded on weekends but you will love it !
  • It has a great variety. now also includes a great range of eatables varying from local to Japanese etc. well designed ... great shopping experience.. more changes underway so right now feels a little messy in some sections! Prices are what you expect from a location of this nature.
  • New products each visit. Prices are comparatively high. But, the collection are unique. However the modified food outlet still serves the same apart from the bar. The attitude of the staff is so high. Rude and not willing to assist locals. This culture has to change. Sometimes it's not the products. It's the staff who makes the experience. Otherwise, there is something for all. Best place to be during Christmas time.

Where to stay in Colombo

Despite its relatively low cost of living, Colombo accommodations tend to be fairly pricey. Close to the sea and the lake, as well as near the city's parks and the plazas, hotels come in the form of old colonial buildings and ultra-modern high rises, with a decent selection of each to choose from. Budget-conscious travelers should pay attention to the short rental options in the town's more residential areas, or look for the smattering of simple, but serviceable options close to the main train stations, and on the side streets set back from the waterfront.
