I'm very surprised that this hotel is not further up the list. It's a very well run hotel, with generous, well appointed rooms, efficient and pleasant staff, and it is extremely well located about halfway along Galle Road. There is a very nice infinity pool on the back roof area, along with a bar and chairs and recliners - the... More

Helpful staff, clean, basic room and wonderful food. Good value. Location not as useful as it could be, but local Tuk Tuk driver turned into a fantastic guide and zipped me around the city for $10AUD per hour. Might be more than others, but he was worth every cent.

This place is perfect if you are looking for a modern, clean, comfortable place. Its up to very good western business hotel standards including great bathroom/shower, wifi, amenities. The room is big and very comfortable, not a cozy boutique hotel (but they cost 4 times as much in Colombo) but so so much better than the budget places that cost... More

As a first impression you might be deceived by the small entrance and lobby , but keeping in mind that you are going to be in a country where people go feet naked and eat with the hands , hotel Renuka is without doubt a winner on cleanliness and service , plus the feature of the fitness and pool at...

The hotel needs to be refurbished. The dining area is very drab. When you walk into the reception area, all you see are the staff sitting in the back room and having a good gossip. The parking is a nightmare and the location is not as what one would expect.

Rooms are fresh (recently rennovated), equipped with iron+ironing board, however lack items to meet international 4 star standard. Why they bill you in USDollars!!!!! Reception Staff hardly professional and tend to overcharge. Food in the restaurant is good, once again, staff falls short of professionalism.

Located in central colombo, just beside the sea (100 meters), on main road . Have some good restaurants near by & a super-market too (behind the hotel ; facing the sea , just turn right when you reach the sea facing road). You'll fall in love with the pool on the 5th floor (?) facing the sea. Have a gym... More

Like others have already pointed out. The Renuka is a good hotel to start with, especially with the food top pool. Its nice, clean, comfortable ect. But more business- like than cosy and charming. Food is ok, but breakfast too expencive. No beach by the way!

Myself and a friend stayed here on arrival in Sri Lanka and it was exactly what was needed....comfortable beds, a good shower and a sun terrace with a great pool and views over the sea. A great starting point for seeing Colombo in a great central location...for sights and restaurants. Our breakfast was not included in the room charge, so... More
