I have been staying at the Renuka Hotel 4 times during the last 4 years. The old wing has been renovated since my last stay and now renovation / construction work seems to be completed. The rooms are modern, clean and the staff has always been friendly and helpful. Compared to other hotels in Colombo the rates are reasonable -... More

Loved it again best value for money in Colombo by far. The views over the ocean from the roof top pool are amazing, especially when the sun setting. Big rooms, comfy beds and the large tv all help give a little relief from the hussle and bussle of Colombo on a hot day. Staff are fantastic including the bell boy... More

If you are not staying in the Fort area, this hotel is still in a fairly central location, although you may need a tuk tuk to get around. which is very reasonable if you can persuade the driver to use the meter (be aware, some of them try to overcharge). This is an older hotel which is being transformed into... More

On arrival at Colombo from Bangalore on the evening of 12th December 2014, the drive from Bandaranaike International Airport to “Renuka City Hotel” on Galle Road was pleasant and comfortable. Though it was near mid-night the staff were very cordial and we felt welcomed. The rooms were clean & comfortable and had good views of the road and could watch... More

The renovation has meant that this hotel has very spacious and agreeable rooms, all very well done. Breakfast is excellent and the pool lovely: a great place to get the sea breezes in the evening (though the pulsing music is perhaps a shame: the crash of the waves being much better). Staff try like mad and make the whole thing... More

I stay at Renuka Hotel, because of the great location and this year I had no hesitation in staying with them again for a part of my trip. Service is good but being a regular I felt I get rewarded better for staying frequently at other properties - whether it's a discount or room upgrade. I think this is something... More

I visited the hotel after many moons, having been a rather frequent visitor for nearly half a decade. I was very pleasantly surprised with the wonderful refurbishment. Brilliant decor in the halls I used for the training, lovely interior at the signature Palmyra restaurant and well thought through and placed toilets. What was brilliant was the many familiar faces I... More

Situated on the main Galle Road, this hotel is ideal for a business traveller on a quick visit to the city. The hotel has two wings, one old, and the other the new wing, connected by a small "sky bridge" on the second floor. The old wing is currently under renovation. I have stayed here on two previous occasions and... More
