Renuka Hotel has renovated so that Renuka and Renuka City Hotel are very different and marketed as two separate Hotels, which they are not. We stayed in Renuka City, the newer building to tower over the Colombo skyline. The place was clean, very friendly service and seemed professional. The pool on the roof is a highlight but if you are going in peak season December-April, then don't expect to get a sun lounger unless you're prepared to get up at a ridiculous time. We are English and only encountered a couple of other English people, a lot of the other tourists were friendly but when it came to getting a good picture of them in the pool at sunset or something they were decidedly rude and it was everyman for himself. The gentleman working there endeavoured to find a chair for you, running round asking people if they were using the 6million chairs they were using up, which meant you didn't have to do it. This was a massive plus.
The only other downside was that it was veery noisy outside our room and we talked to the staff about it they just said the man next you was drunk and laughed. It didn't spoil our trip but I was surprised!
The restaurant is pleasantly surprising, my boyfriend thought it was great and it was nice the way they don't really pander to western tastes too much. I found mild things I liked and my boyfriend got stuck in with local cuisine.
We paid quite a lot, about £100 a night for a deluxe room with breakfast. Maybe a little more. All in all a friendly modern place with large clean rooms and a decent breakfast.
