I have stayed at the galle face many many times and well before trip adviser was invented. One of its main advantages is the fact that it's in the city on the sea. I also love the high ceilings and polished wooden floors. It also a short distance from the lagoon seafood restaurant at the Cinnamon grand hotel if you want to treat yourself to some really good food. The Galle face is a little less than perfect and that 's what I prefer. The staff are welcoming and attentive.
