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

i have stayed here twice for business trip. the only plus side of this hotel is the seaview. other than that, not worth staying because it is old and expensive. not worth the money to spend on staying here. walking distance to dutch hospital for food.

The hotel is well located in Galle Face. I had a sea facing room. So, the view was fantastic. The service was excellent. However, the hotel is past its prime. Except for the lobby area, the hotel badly needs a refurbishment. The rooms, though very spacious, were in bad shape with torn carpet and old furnishings. So, if you are... More

Hotel Galadari is a good business hotel located in Galle Face at Colombo. I was in this hotel for 2 days. The food was great. I liked the conference venue. I wish they could have a better night life. The spa is too expensive. But it is located near to Dutch Restaurent, which is fantastic place to hang around.

We stayed here in September. The hotel is approx. 40 minutes away from the airport. We stayed for 3 days in the hotel, it was a travel agent booked accommodation. I had similar buffets during this trip in other star hotels at Kandy and bentota, and I must say I was slightly disappointed with the buffet here. the service was... More
