    My holiday this year will be in Colombo and finding a good hotel is something I always have problems with. Going to another means that's I need to be extra careful and make sure I make the right choice for a hotel.

    An easy option would be choosing a 5-star hotel, but unfortunately, it's not in my budget. The budget I have for a hotel is maximum Rs2500 per night, and I am hoping in this budget I can find a good hotel, which provides free WiFi services, clean room and washroom and good food.

    My flight is on November 12th, and I will get back to the forum after a week or two when I get a reasonable amount of hotel suggestions so that I get a good number to choose from.
