The locations is very good, staff is super friendly and helpful. Rooms are fine but totaly not worth The price I paid for - almost 100$. In addition, they overcharge for the airport pickup - 42$. Taking a taxi by yourself would cost Round 18-19$. Would expect a better service from the hotel on that aspect. Not a bad hotel... More

The rooms in Renuka are large, well laid out and comfortable. However the roof top pool is tiny and the space around it also seems quite limited (although it never seemed crowded). Staff were helpful and friendly. My main recommendation would be to put more options for vegetarians on the room service menu; I stayed for several nights and found... More

This was my second stay here, it is an excellent hotel for a business stay with good laundry facilities and a reliable wifi connection. The pool and bar on the roof are a very welcome addition - excellent for watching the sunset. The restaurant food is good and all the staff are helpful.

We booked the old wing by mistake and the room looked like it was straight off a thai horror movie (think poor lighting and eerie atmosphere). So we requested a change to the new wing (With a 15sgd top-up) and we were so glad with our decision. the room is very well furnished, mordern and clean. The porter was very... More

We had read a number of reviews, and were not expecting too much-but we're pleasantly surprised by this hotel. It may be slightly expensive, but comparable with other Colombo hotels. We booked a room in the old wing and thought we may end up in a smoke tainted dated room, however our room was fresh and came with TV, room... More

This hotel failed to impress from the moment I arrived. As I was arriving in Colombo very late at night I arranged airport transfers with the hotel. I was expecting to be whisked away from the airport by a crisply dressed driver in a comfortable town car instead I was met by a host dressed in polo shirt and jeans... More

Stayed for one night. Rooms were big enough & clean. Location is good and the staff were helpful. Breakfast is rich and tasty. There is a pool on the roof's floor which is very close to a collection of several large cellular aerials . Beware to stay there too much time.................

Hotel Renuka City is located centrally near Galle Phase- wonderful beach nearer to it. rooms are specious, neat and clean and food is wonderful. Hospitality is also satisfactory.

Booked this hotel for 2 nights in Colombo. It's fine - clean, functional, helpful staff, but wouldn't set pulses racing. Pool is a bonus, with a bar too, on the roof. Reasonable distance from central Colombo, and on the Galle Road, but not a very nice area on the whole. Sea view but train line in front of the coast... More
