The most pathetic choice ever made, for stay. It is not at all a hotel of the current time. Its wall-to-wall carpeted, and coz of trapped humidity the rooms stink badly. Not a very good choice for people with allergy problems. Bathroom knob was broken. Food was bad.had a scary experience of hotel staff trying to forcibly enter room for... More

This hotel should have their ratings redone. Anyone that says the amenities of this hotel are great has obviously not stayed in much decent hotels. Our experience for the group of 4 rooms was horrible. The food was mediocre at its best. The rooms were all smoky and musty. Carpet was from the 1970s. Wallpaper was peeling. That even for... More

This hotel is a joke for how expensive it is. Everything is very dated, which was confirmed when I spoke to a manager who told me nothing in the hotel had been changed in thirty years. The breakfast and dinner buffet was average. A lot of choice but none of it was particularly good. The reception staff were rude to... More

Hotel Galadari is an awesome place to stay and the food was fantastic. Staff were so nice and really helpful. I recommend this hotel for anyone who likes to have some relaxing time with your family, then this is one of a good place. Look forward to go back again.

We've brought family as a treat to the Galadari on two occasions now and always enjoy it! Paid a little extra the first time for a birthday cake and the staff were very accommodating. Tasty selection of savoury foods, pancake and hot food stations, cakes and drinks (better than most in Colombo) at a reasonable price and buffet style always... More

This hotel is over priced and dated. There are better options nearby in terms of the interior and facilities. I stayed one night at a cost of about 170 USD including breakfast. An additional charge is applied for WIFI. The hotel looks fantastic as you walk in but unfortunately the rooms are dated and shabby looking. On a positive note... More

Had my wedding at galadari last year and spent two nights at the hotel. The hotel is a little old and requires a renovation. But the assurance we received during the wedding is second to none. Staff were very helpful. The food was excellent. Would recommend the place for a few nights of you are visiting colombo.
