Used to be the underdog in comparison to Hilton, right next door, however after Hilton loses its quality, Galadari, had stepped it up a bit. Should invest into the quality and modernity of the the restaurant.

Only good thing about this hotel was their dinner buffet menu. Sea food was at its best. Breakfast was a let down. Burnt waffles, and heavily Sri Lankan/South Indian menu, does not leave you with many choices. Staff was impolite in bringing us the bill without asking for it. Maybe they wanted us to leave. Their lobby ceiling drips, so...

The hotel is old and the rooms are not nice. For the price you pay, it is definitely not worth it. There are many other better options around. This hotel is around 30 years old and needs renovation. The only good thing about the hotel is that the food was nice.

It is neat and clean hotel with nice services. It is well sited with beautiful view of open sea. It has excellent restaurants with variety of food items. Staff is generally nice and respectful. However, some of the staff is rude and required to be taught customer courtesy and how to be respectful to others specially cashier.Poor.

Ideal for business and official events. Food is great and friendliness of the staff is great and very helpful. The hotel cleanliness is very good and very fresh with the sea breeze. Rates are quite resonable and the locarion is quite convenient. Many sceneries from this hotel like the twin towers and other sites coming up soon.
