4 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 days ago NEW via mobile

Stayed for 1 night . Very dated. Needs renovation .wi fi chargeable which was very annoying. Buffet spread was very good for breakfast and dinner. Well worth it. Rooms were ok . Bath was dirty and black. The porters waited to get their trips which I don't agree .

Its not at all worthy. They claim its a 5 star hotel but if you look at the condition of the room, carpet, they all are pretty old and needs to be replaced. Also, from the so-called "sea-view" room, where I was staying, the sea view is not that good, due to the location of the hotel. Service is good... More

We are a family of four (2 Adults & 2 Kids) and we stayed here on the first day and last day of our 10 days trip to Sri Lanka. Basically we used the hotel as a transit hotel and I would rate our stay as average. On our last day stay we got upgraded to a room on the... More

We had been here on our honeymoon. We reached around 00:15 had a very nice feeling about the hotel seeing the access area and lobby / front area. It was all very happy happy feel until we reached our room. The room was so untidy and unclean as soon as we started to settle there, going through the bathroom it... More

We stayed here for just one night on our final leg of our 10 day long Sri Lanka holiday. This hotel is right in the middle of the CBD and faces the sea side and the rest of the wonderful Colombo city, so we get a very good view from the top floors (we stayed on the 11th floor!) of... More

The hotel does not support the 4 stars claimed. It surely needs renovation. Common rooms are smelly and old. Rooms are not clean, smell a lot. Plumbing need to be restored immediately - they produce noise and are broken. Staff is not helpful and friendly. We had to change 3 times our room due to problems with noise and plumbing.... More

We stayed at the Galadari for a night as our flights were overbooked. The stay was sponsored by Srilankan Airlines. The hotel is good, rooms are clean and neat. The food is amazing, mix of Srilankan, Indian and Continental cuisines. The letter from the airlines said our accommodation, food and beverages, phone connectivity all shall be provided at the hotel.... More

Our stay here was satisfactory. The room wasn't lacking in amenities, and had a lovely view. What really pushed me Give this place 5 stars was the in house restaurant where we took breakfast and lunch. The breakfast spread was awesome, where I went paleo. At lunch the food preparation was awesome on par with a gourmet fine dining experience.... More

A good location in Colombo city to stay in. A classic type hotel which looks historical. Rooms are very nicely maintained with quite responsive room service. The food in all its restaurants (including the buffet breakfast/ lunch / dinner) is sumptuous and a good spread. If you are a vegan or vegetarian, then choices are little limited but the staff...
