A great hotel with the view of the Indian Ocean if you booked a room facing them. Staffs are friendly and attentive to your needs. Hotel's Breakfast is a luxury which provides you with enough varieties of Sri Lankan and Western food. However WIFI is not free.

Visiting this place regularly from my childhood and being able and lucky to work in it for me is an big achievement. Totally friendly staff & beautiful views all around and throughout the hotel. Excellent dishes and a variety of specialized restaurants make Galadari a must to stay and enjoy your vacation or business purposes

Galadari is very ideally located and has a very decent standard of accommodation. It might not be the most luxurious hotel in town or has the best of restaurants to boast off. It is most suited for a business traveler or a transit tourist who wants to avoid the traffic in the city. This hotel has a easy get away... More

I stayed the night because it was my brother's wedding reception, but I was totally underwhelmed. Firstly, the service was dismal. First we were told that we would have a room for getting ready. Then we were told that the room for getting ready was the same room where the bride and groom would sleep. Then we were told that... More

I was there for a conference buffet lunch and the food couldn't be worse even in a Muslim hotel in pettah.That bad. Only the salads were edible. Even the fried rice was so bland that you wondered whether the chefs were on strike and the security team took over. I simply lost my appetite and sought refuge in dessert but... More

The High Tea at the Galadari is very satisfying. In the pleasant ambience of the elevated lobby area and sitting area near the Bar, you can sit and munch on delicasies from a variety of sandwiches and savouries plus some Sushi or whatever is on the International range available for the day. Spring Rolls, fried in front of you, kebabs,... More

We had to stay here, because our flight was cancelled, so the airline took us to this hotel. First we were impressed, because the location is quite good (right by the ocean and a 5-minute walk from the Fort Railway Station) and the interior looked very nice. But once we got to our room, it was quite a disappointment. This... More
