The hotel is in an excellent location though when we stayed the Dutch quarter was closed and we struggled to find anywhere to eat. The lobby of the hotel had been updated but the rooms were horrible and in need of a refurbishment. They felt dirty and defiantly smelled of tobacco. The bed was large but horrid hard blankets.

the location, staff and the lobby of the hotel is ok but the rooms are terribly outdated. We were on the 5th floor and had what was called a superior room. Upon initial entry itself the room had a bad smell; kinda like everything in there (carpets, curtains, etc) were damp. I couldnt handle it and tried opening the windows... More

I had stayed in this hotel during a business trip. Hotel's location is excellent with sea at walking distance. Staff was quite friendly and courteous. There are lot of hang out places around and nice walk on seashore line in the night.

My husband and I stayed at Galadari Hotel for one night and it was pretty good. The hotel is located in a strategic place, just at the heart of the business district in Colombo, and just in front of the Indian Ocean. Our room on the tenth floor was clean and had a lovely sea view. at night we enjoyed... More

On business trips to Colombo I always stay at this hotel. Located next to the beach walkway and jogging track and near a few good restaurants is pretty convenient. The gym is good as well and can be handy on rainy days. Prices are reasonable. Don't forget to ask for Internet to be included while booking otherwise extra payment will... More

This place was clearly once a great hotel - location is fantastic, the lobby lulls you into a sense of luxury, and the rooms are a step back in time. Musty and tired come to mind. Functional and reasonably quiet. Glad we only had one night. The buffet meals were reasonable, selection ok, but just not quite there. Staff lovely.

We stayed here for one night. The hotel lobby is grand with marble floors and wood paneling. However, the minute we stepped out of the lift on the 5th floor the distinct smell of old carpet hits you in the face. the rooms smell a bit better. Old furniture in the rooms, decent beds, shower could use some work. No... More
