Its a nice hotel and if you are with family or a group of friends you shall have a nice time. Its a little old in comparison to the newer hotels around so it sums up to be a 4 star deluxe and not a 5 star hotel as per our experience. Having said that, nothing takes away the pleasantries... More

When we recently stayed 2 nights; we found the service quite inconsistent. Front desk at check-in was quite unfriendly and the tone would even probably be construed as rude by some. Concierge was friendly and helpful. Depending on which housekeeping staff you spoke with, you may or may not get your request attended to. Staff at the ground floor international... More

We have visited and eaten in this hotel on many occasions, mainly for business meetings. It is in an ideal location for exploring Colombo by three wheeler. Shops, other hotels and restaurants, the Galle Face Green and other attractions are all very close. The hotel buffets are excellent and there are many other dining options. The hotel is immaculately clean... More

Situated closed to the sea and the Dutch hospital shopping complex, Galadari is good option while in Colombo. The buffet breakfast has a wide range and even vegeterians have a wide option!. Don't forget to check out the great variety of tea at Milensa tea Centre near the reception
