Everything about this hotel is just about ok. I don't have any reason to complain,neither do I have a reason to lay out glowing tributes. A real decent property which will bring out a real value for money proposition foe the travellers.rooms are spacious ( I had a suite, which was a combination of two rooms attached together, staff is friendly and helpful and location fantastic.
One glitch though. The internet is not complimentary. And even if you purchase a package, it is valid only on one device. So, if you have two devices, you need to take two packages. Dear management at the hotel...the world has migrated way ahead in terms of providing internet to its patrons. Pls catch up fast.

Stayed here on a business trip. The food was the best I've ever eaten
If you like international; Indian or Arabic cuisine; you can't do better than here.
Old fashioned manners are to the fore from the staff. It reminded me of a bygone age.
Only disappointment was the room. Spacious, but needed modernising badly.
But bed was really comfy.
Didn't complain as was on a biz trip; so no problem for me.
Staff couldn't help enough.
Brilliant value. pay in local currency for value.

Room Tip: email or phone them before-hand.

looks like an old star hotel where you may find a lot of worn out items in terms of carpet and room accessories. kind of okey but got to be careful when you give your laundry, coz they really mix up stuff. i lost a full set on my one week stay. and they had no clue how they missed it, and no way to track it.
break fast is good and location is also near the beech.

Room Tip: choose higher floors with rooms towards the west. view of sunset is really good.

We stayed here in April and this happened to be the time when sinhalese new year was being celebrated in colombo. The streets were absolutely dead. On the brighter side, we had the entire hotel to ourselves. The hotel is approx. 40 minutes away from the airport. All the shopping malls are very close by. The staff is very helpful and the food was average. However, the down side was that the hotel was charging for wifi though you get it for free at pretty much all the hotels worldwide. There is a place called the Dutch hospital which has some fantastic restaurants. This is literally a 2 minute walk from the hotel. Most recommended.
Overall good hotel, will visit again.

Room Tip: higher floors give a better view of the city!

Thank you for your review Siddharth. We are glad you had a pleasant stay at the Galadari. Regarding your concern about Wifi, we will surely look in to offering complimentary Wifi in the near future, as this is a recurring concern amongst most travelers. On a more cheerful note, we believe that you got to enjoy the best of Colombo and we look forward to welcoming you again very soon.

we stayed at Galadari for one night. We stayed in a suite and it was very spacious and clean.
We bathrooms were clean and well maintained. The rooms were however a little out-dated.
Great location and the breakfast spread was fantastic. We really enjoyed it.
