Historic building. Bood breakfast buffet.
Make sure not to book a basic room or ask for an upgrade.

Beautiful location
The architectural style of this hotel is colonial and the view over the ocean provides an unbeatable spot for sunset. Don't miss the taking down of the flag every evening to the music of bagpipes.

Farewell in style
We spend our last night of our 3 week visit at the Galle Face. It felt very luxurious. The rooms are good, staff is very attentive and friendly. We spend more in one day then a whole week in small guesthouses. But we felt like Queens.

So much potential
A very sad experience considering I used to visit this hotel in my childhood. The staff need to greet the guests and understand that they are here for us! The gym is very disappointing and half the machines don't work. There are no towels either! Signage is pretty non existent around the property and on several occasions in ended up in the staff area. No point adding preferences on agoda as the hotel doesn't even make a comment about them!! food was ok but cleanliness of our room disappointing and n set time would rather of booked at cinnamon grand across the road. Such a shame as this has so much potential as the grande dame of Colombo.

Superb and Relaxing Stay!
We travelled around Asia for 7 months and ended up our trip in this amazing historycal hotel in Colombo. very wide views to the Indian Ocean, very large rooms for reading, chilling, eating, or simply relaxing... The rooms are large, and in room all amenities needed for our stay are provided. The products for hair are superb, the mattress is superb, the big bed is so good ! So it's guaranteed that all nights will be very calm and tranquil :-) All restaurants serve excellent foods, with excellent options on the menus/a la carte. The 1864 is superbly managed and all foods are very tasty taking you to another world of happiness! All staff members re professional and very polite, they will do everything to meet our needs and to see us happy! Everyday you will be received with a big smile by every member of this fabulous hotel, so you will never regret to have chosen this magic place... Just come, step inside on this fabulous History Hotel, relax and...let it goes!!! Certainly you will be driven to a very safe Colombo!!!

Timeless Grandeur
The Galle Face Hotel, Sri Lanka’s iconic landmark, is situated in the heart of Colombo, along the seafront and facing the famous Galle Face Green. One of the oldest Hotels east of the Suez, the Galle Face Hotel embraces its rich history and legendary traditions, utilizing them to create engaging, immense experiences that resonate with old and new generations of travelers alike. No visit to Sri Lanka is complete without staying at this majestic hotel, built in 1864 and recently restored back to its former glory. Value for money - A must if visiting Sri Lanka.
