Galadari is right behind WTC and guests can see the vast Indian Ocean from most of the rooms. The place is old fashioned but with all the facilities that one can expect from a modern hotel. The continental cuisine was quite good. The location is perfect for partying, dining and shopping.

visiting after two years. The tired old lady should be getting a facelift in the nearest future. The staff more than makeup for the lack of freshening up the décor. Warm smiles, ever eager to serve and please at all touch points. This is a grand hotel with one of the best ocean views built in an American style and...

The quote “Old is Gold” is a true when it comes to Galadari Hotels. It has an ethnic touch that makes it unique yet beautiful. On arrival I was given The Presidential Suite at the hotel. The Presidential Suite was a ‘luxurious private residence’ that boasted an extra-large parlor, designer master bedroom and a guest room. It had furnishings that...

Worn rooms and the hotel need an Upgrade. Not to be considered more than a 3 star hotel, even if they have bar and restaurant, and some shops. Swimmingpool on one of the top floors under roof ... No rooms with balcony. A huge hotel without charm or atmosphere. Close to Dutch Hospital and good location.

Stayed one night and the hotel was silent, neat and positioned at the center of Colombo. Staff were friendly. The rooms were neat with a good bedding to rest. All over, a nice place to stay. I'ld always like the Toilet to be neat and it was perfect.
