If you don't like local food (like me), easy to find KFC, King Burger... - Not good wifi. In 3 days in Renuka, I often asked staffs to reconnect wifi. - Poor food. Not many choices... More

Arranged a take away for dinner via Room Service Deliverys, and was told it would be with us in under one hour, it took one and a half hours.... We ordered crab kottu and egg hoppers. The hoppers went straight in the bin as they were cold and soggy. The crab kottu was luke warm, and had no real flavour,... More

The Renuka is great value for money. It ha a great location in a fairly safe area in Colombo. Nowhere is more than a short tuk-tuk ride away. The rooms are clean and it boats one of the best restaurants in the city. Above all, the quality of the staff were excellent. A big shout out to Piyal the porter... More

Situated in a good location in Colombo is the Renuka City Hotel. Not a really fancy hotel but the right quality / price combination. Rooms are clean, very friendly staff and high nice view from the top floor. The only less positive thing is the breakfast. For the amount of money spent on the breakfast it's just not worth the...

Yes, Hotel is Good. Staff is Good. Near to Sea, hardly 5 minutes walk able distance. Main in the city center area. Yes, Room size is little small compared to rate. Breakfast is good. Should provide pick & drop from the airport.

I don't usually like leaving bad reviews, but this was a very disappointing stay in Colombo. Despite booking with 'breakfast included' we had to pay extra for breakfast for each of us. We would not have booked if we knew this would happen, manager was not very helpful and wouldn't let us cancel our second night. Even though this is... More

Not a bad option for central Colombo. The bedroom was clean and comfortable, wifi worked ok, and the breakfast ok too. The pool area could get crowded if there were a lot of guests I guess. Within walking distance of plenty of places.
