. The break fast buffet is sumptuous and the hotel has a wide variety of restaurants to treat your taste buds. The only flip side is the bathrooms, the bathrooms can be a bit neater, apart from this the stay is pretty comfortable the nice hotel

After a long flight from Los Angeles was anxious to see where we would be staying for 3 nights, knew it was a city hotel and the reviews online were mixed. We reached the property, looked like a big hotel, lobby was nice, over from the beach too. We were upgraded to a suite on the 10th floor. Room was dated and in need of an over haul but seemed clean and had all that we really needed, the view was great, ocean view and right next door to the Presidents office and a few buildings away from where he and his family live so a secure area. The Hotel staff did warn us not to use the Tuk Tuks outside, but we did and they were fine. Twice men came up to us and said that they worked in the Hotel and said that they would make sure they got us one that would not rip us off, just a hoax, get your own one. Was there on Half Board so had a great Breakfast and dinner each night, Buffet style. The busy part of town is quite a hike away or for just 200 Rupees the Tuk's were good value. Overall, not luxury, would say 3 star but good safe location with friendly staff….so would stay again.

Room Tip: Higher floors facing the water and the Secretariat..

My first night after very long exhausting flight I arrived to Galadari hotel at 12PM 14/12/13.
I found dirty room , old neglected torn and broken furnitures as stored in warehouse not 5 star hotel. window not opened for fresh air although it was facing the the sea.

The height of it was that I couldnt turn off the lights in the room because of electricity problems .
I was so tired coulnt even complain and so I slept with all lights on till dawn.......

Room Tip: Dont even dare spending 1 night there.

A nice big hotel by the ocean, almost all the rooms are ocean facing hence provide a majestic view from the rooms. The break fast buffet is sumptuous and the hotel has a wide variety of restaurants to treat your taste buds. The only flip side is the bathrooms, the bathrooms can be a bit neater, apart from this the stay is pretty comfortable.

The hotel has decent recreational spaces with swimming pool, gymnasium, steam and sauna. Overall a pleasant stay at the hotel

Only a day's stay due to the wedding reception being held there. The hotel room had a really good view of Colombo and the sea gave a very nice breeze to the room.

The room was on the 4th floor and was located in a way that there were so many views of Colombo.

Spacious room with good sized beds and comfortable.

Spent 7 days during conference (MCIP, jointly organized by the SL Army and US Pacific Command) . My suite in 8th floor provided excellent view of Colombo harbor and Galle face. Suite and food were truly exceptional. Hotel staff did an excellent job in coordinating the conference and providing services to the participants.
