Located close to the gall face green at the very heart of Colombo. Friendly helpful staff. Food is average( I was there for an academic session. May be the menu they have selected). Overall expression is good.

The hotel location is very good but our room was northern face, so the sea view was not possible than the southern face. Room was cleaned, wide screen TV,... More

Went for high tea with a group over a weekend and the spread was excellent. Good selection of food and beverages at a reasonable price. Service was good and staff are friendly. Baked Alaska was really good!

First time to colombo and only stay here for 2 days 2 night. The hotel offers in-house taxi to show us around (temples and city tour mostly), costing Rs 900 (approx USD 6). All the staffs are super friendly. The hotel is very strategically located opposite presidential palace, 5 mins walk to the famous Dutch Hospital and overlooking the beach.

I have been to Galadhari couple of times.Its next to the sea but not due to the Port city its loosing it s sea side charm.Galadhari food is good but not better than Agra.Its got a nice buffet and a good parking place.Its equivalent to the Taj of Mumbai.The service is good and fast.

Was surprised to see how they treat guests at this hotel. Rude and obnoxious attitude of staff is appalling. Most 5 star hotels in colombo thrive on their service but this hotel treats their guests in a rude and abusing manner.

We booked at short notice as we were attending an annual dinner dance and didn't have time to make it home after work and get back in time. The staff were polite, friendly and helpful and check in easy. The room was clean and spacious with an ocean view (despite the port developments). The tea making facilities were plentiful. We...

Stay was uncomfortable. Rooms needs refurbishing. While I was taking bath, the water tap completely came out. Wifi is slow. I sat on sofa in the room and got completely sank. Heavy rush for Breakfast, finding a place to sit is a nightmare. Fewer staff to clean the tables make it a messy affair. Staff on Reception is poorly trained... More
