The Galadari hotel is well placed next to Galle Green and also beside the Hilton. I arrived at the airport at 2am, and a Galadari car taxi driver was there to pick me up and deliver me to the hotel. Usually the cars are much mre expensive than normal taxis (kangaroo etc), and the trip cost alsmot 5,000 rupees, although... More

The location of the hotel is awesome. But they don't offer free Wi-fi as being offered in all the surrounding hotels. The rooms are not as expected and look older than the exterior of building. not value for money.

During one of my official trip, I had stayed at Galadari and my main reason to chose this hotel was that they served Halal Food. Hotel is securely situated near to many official buildings with lots of surveillance and security. Just behind the hotel is the ocean side which is serene with no crowd and apt cleanliness. Hotel itself is... More

We spent 5 nights here and found the accommodation excellent. The hotel staff are friendly and willing to help at the time. The room did not face the ocean but that is not an issue. The room was clean, bed king size and comfortable. The next most importand feature in room is the shower. This was sufficient. We had an... More

As part of our srilankan tour, we had to stay in galadari hotel colombo on March 18th 2014. The location of the hotel and the restaurants are good. But the foremost important part, the room was in very poor condition. The room is pretty old and not at all suitable for a holiday (may be okay for a business trip).... More

I visited Colombo recently and stayed at Galadari. I would say it is perfectly located right opposite to the old parliament building with a picturesque view of the beach. Spacious room, lavish buffet spread, friendly staff are a plus. We really liked their North Indian restaurant. Though the buliding is a bit old but that is fine given all other... More

I've been at Galadari Hotel on a business trip to Colombo. The best thing about this hotel is its buffet. More than 100 mouth watering cuisines. The pub and bar on the ground floor are also good to explore. the band keeps you entertained. The location is also great. Near the Ocean, Parliament all banks. It's the posh locality of... More
