Hi I am arriving to the Galadari with my family on 18th January 2019, will the hotel collect us from the airport or do I need to book in advance, many thanks
Hi, I booked in advance with a private driver for my entire trip in Sri Lanka, so unfortunately I'm not sure.
You need to book in advance. And this is not free. As a suggestion you may use the airport taxi as it will be cheaper.
They have one counter at exit of Airport . Go there and they will arrange a cab for you to Hotel or you can book with hotel booking . But its better to catch taxi after reaching at Airport as you have option to take their cab or other lot of cabs are available there .
Colombo is full with Taxi and Autos , everywhere and everytime you can get easily . This hotel gives free taxi to Casino with gift vouchers to play there . When you are going out ask guard to give you .
Behind this hotel there is nice happening area in night with lot of bars , restaurants , music clubs etc . you can go by walking or take taxi for 3 minutes .
Yes you have to book in advance. if you have uber it will be easier and cheaper.
you can purchase a local sim at the airport itself and have a data package active.
i guess it will make your travelling easier. and data cards are not expensive it will be Rs.100 which has 500 MB day(8am to midnight) data and 200 MB night(12 am to 8am) data.
hope that helps :)
