The best thing about Renuka is its location, on the Galle Road. The rooms are clean and has all amenities. The hotel has a beautiful pool on the top floor with amazing views of the Indian Ocean. Galle Face Green is at a walkable distance. Added advantage for Indians are 2 good Indian restaurants just opposite the road. For vegetarian... More

Friendly staff, nice rooms and awesome sunset view from the roof top pool. I think is a little pricy when relating to the level of service, which is the reason behind the average rating. Don't go for the breakfast unless you have it as part of the room to as it is quite pricy as well.

Second time we stay in the Renuka City hotel. Always great service and kind people. We had such a good time in 2014 so we decide to come back this year for a stay of 3 nights.It was nice the staff recognise us from last year.

The rooms have all amenities which any good 5 star hotel can provide. The food at the restaurant was really great and the restaurant was really busy with hotel & outside... More

The room had a weird smell and our view was another building. The only nice thing is the pool. But there was no light around the pool and hence a lot of people kept falling and hurting themselves there. I booked this place solely based on review and honestly I was extremely disappointed. It showed over 8.5 in ratings of... More

This is a good choice of hotel for those who want a decent standard of hotel close to the city centre but not pay a premium for being in central Colombo. Adequate facilities including small roof top swimming pool. Restaurant provides delicious sri lankan food and good breakfast. Staff friendly and efficient. Rooms overlooking the sea are best but are... More

We had dinner at newly refurbished Palmyrah Restaurant. Staff was cautious. Attention to detail. We ordered hoppers, pittu & thosai, which were served Hot & tasty. My children ordered Buriyani which they enjoyed very much. We will return soon & recommend for best Sri Lankan food in Colombo.

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
