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

After a tortuous 36 hour journey time it was wonderful to be greeted by warmth and a genuine welcome from the hotel staff. Even though my stay was just for 2 days the friendliness and willingness to go the extra mile to please made up for the fact that the hotel fabric needs some TLC. The facilities are clean and...

Just got shocked after seeing beautiful but congested reception area when actually went into the room (I just can not ignore just as It was on my favorite floor no 7) as both bed quality and interiors were very ordinary.Service quality was very poor and one does need to call two to three times for basic amenities as bathing support...

This run down place looks like an old lady with not enough make up to cover all the cracks.It needs a total make over from carpets to ceilings. You also get the feeling that they want to take you for every cent possible charging for ice delivered to your room and the Wi-Fi cost you more for a hour than... More

I was fortunate to stay at the hotel as part of our accommodation for the management offsite while at Standard Chartered in the month of December. The hotel is just opposite the national parliament house and beside the sprawling Indian Ocean. The food at the hotel is more of sea food kinds and if you are a vegetarian you are... More

Stayed in the Galadari for 3 nights. Co-incidentally, I stayed here in October 1997 when the hotel suffered a bomb attack by the LTTE. We had to spend a while to have free internet, though the breakfast was included in our package. The stay was comfortable, though the hotel is showing signs of being outdated. There are newer hotels offering... More
