Went here for the Buffet Dinner with my family. The spread and the food was fantastic! Many choices and the salads were amazing. The waiters are kind and the atmosphere is cozy and nice with a live band singing. Enjoyed the food and GREAT value for money.

Out of our entire trip to Sri Lanka, the stay in Galadari was the least pleasant. The hotel is very old, with old furniture and not quite clean rooms. Overpriced buffet dinner, but good deserts. There was a persistent smell at the pool area.The hotel has a view to the Indian Ocean and the old Parliament House. It was easy...

Yes Galadari hotel in Colombo is located in an excellent location and we can have a beautiful Sea view from most of the rooms. The breakfast spread is good and very courteous staff. On the whole the atmosphere in the hotel is very pleasant. All the staff make you feel very welcome.

Unfortunately this hotel has passed its prime........ The bars and restaurants are old fashioned and out dated. Many of the staff wear dinner jackets and bow ties and I kept waiting for the 80's soundtrack to accompany the decor. Our room was clean and pleasant enough but again stuck in an 80's time warp. The aircon is set far too...

Checked in and checked straight out within an hour! The hotel is in need of updating and it smells of sewage? Not sure it it's because there is a chemical factory next door? Went to look at the pool and no one was sitting out there and perhaps it's because it also smells outside the hotel as well as in.

Room was clean and properly arranged. Only the issue was that the toilet comet has a leakage itself. Had late dinner with my beloved in The coffee shop at Hotel Galadari and it was Superb tasty and satisfied with the dinner and their service. Their buffet breakfast system was too good.

We went here for a quick meal after drinking at the Kingsbury as its just across the road. The outdoor Roti stalls looked and smelt great. We went inside to investigate the middle eastern food restaurant but it was empty of customers and the staff looked asleep. We were not surprised to see how very old and sad and out...
