“Lovely pool!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

I liked this hotel in the heart of Colombo. Clean and comfortable rooms with all the necessity staff. I just missed hair dryer a bit ..
Roof top was nice with the pool. There was relaxing music and wonderful view. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Stayed August 2013

I have stayed here twice for business trip and it was great. My room had a great view of the sea and it's comfortable enough - a good size with a nice bathroom. The bed was very comfortable, the sheets were cleaned and spotless every time I returned. The food and staffs are great. I love the hospitality of every staff I encounter. They have a laundry service and it was excellent but you need to tick or put the "Do not Disturb" sign if you don't have any laundry coz the Laundry lady will wake you every morning just to ask/collect your laundry. The wifi system is a bit troublesome since they required you to sign in every time you connected to the network.

Room Tip: Book the room in the new wing. Try the grilled Lamb in there Room Service.

Stayed here for one night, it's so overpriced for what you actually get....we booked two rooms, one room had twin beds, asked to change it and they wouldn't. Said they were full, we didn't see another customer (literally) in the hotel, also it was a smoking room, the room was also grubby, carpets, mirrors etc..location is good, however views from the pool area are not exactly scenic, we personally won't be going back at we felt it's way to overpriced for what you get.....good lesson learnt!

I have stayed here twice for business trip. this hotel is cheaper than many other hotels. However the service is still very good. book the new wing for modern rooms. and check out the roof top bar and swimming pool for spectacular sea view.

This relatively modern hotel fronts onto Galle Road and back onto the Ocean. That said, the area isn't attractive. The pool looks out over the ocean and has a bar as well.
The rooms are spacious, well appointed and nice big bathrooms.

The staff were helpful and efficient.

There are 2 buildings in the hotel, the restaurant is in the lower floor of the 2nd building. They have a great selection of quality Sri Lankan and Western foods. The breakfast buffet wasn't huge but enough of a selection of good quality food.

We were allotted new wing. Rooms are spacious and can comfortably fit a family of two children. The breakfast was good with traditional srilankan unlimited food. Staffs are courteous and pleasant. Walkable distance to Galle beach road. I was told the dinner at cinnamon grand hotel is good. But we could not try it. The beach is behind the hotel 100 metres away. The view from gym and swimming pool is amazing.

Room Tip: Rooma at new wing are good

Renuka City Hotel is located in the heart of Colombo City on Galle Road. The rooms are comfortable though not luxurious- but ideal if you are in Colombo to shop and experience the nightlife since it is a stone's throw from all the major shopping malls and eateries. We found it very convenient to just walk down to the places we wanted to visit. Barefoot, Galle Face beach, Crescat mall (where the food court is an ideal stop on a busy day of shopping), and Odel are all very close to the hotel. The Sri Lanka tourism Department has an enquiry office just a 5 minute walk from the hotel and we found that very useful while planning trips to Marissa and Galle where we planned to to go after Colombo.
The only down-side about Renuka is that the food is very bad and very over priced. After the first experience we just stopped having any meal there-breakfast included.
Overall a good place because of the location, comfortable rooms and affordable prices.
