A Dump

It's history

Hotel appears to be without management,run for the convenience of staff rather than guests. I dare anyone to order from room service and be able to eat what ever arrives.The star turn here is the Cuoque Monsieur. Cleanliness is not number one priority in this hotel.
Hotel Feature Tip: Don't book in.

a nice way to kick-start a trip to sri lanka

Atmosphere, location
7
after an inevitably long journey to get to sri lanka, spending the first night in colombo is no bad idea. the galle face is in a great location, where you can walk out and watch the sunset on the galle face green amongst the locals. the service is a bit slow but it is still lovely to sit and have a cocktail on the patio. the rooms are atmospheric, truly transporting you back to another time that doesn't feel the least bit cheesy.
Restaurant Tip: Dinner at the gallery cafe!

Great location, basic room

Location, sunsets and historical charm
6.3
We were given a quite small and very basic room, but was upgraded a bit because the door couldn't lock. Still, the rooms in the old wing are very basic for the price, but then again you come to Galle Face Hotel for the history and the great views of the sunset. And that the hotel delivers.

Classic hotel in Colombo on the beach

Excellent location with beautiful view
6.7
We were upgraded to the Royal Suite one of te largest we have stayed.Staff wer very helpful and the restaurants though limited were good. The reception staff lost our booking and had to be reminded with the printed copy. No problem in changing the wing for future booking.
Restaurant Tip: Avoid breakfast time between 8.30 AM and 9.30 AM. Very difficult to get a table. Breakfast is excellent
Ignatius C. Couples United States of America, February 5, 2013
the hotel wifi is unsatisfactory

history
7
You are asked to buy wifi access in time segments. The wifi access is very, very poor and unreliable and takes forever to access.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: The hotel doesn't seem to know what foreigners want to see, even after all these decades! The staff seems tense and unhappy and confused.
Ann S. Families with older children Sweden, February 4, 2013
History revisited in it´s best sence

Very genuine with a lot of colonial history. We were upgraded to a suite overlooking both the ocean and the Galle Face (central park). Friendly staff and a great pool.

classic rooms need updating

breakfast very good value, location, general ambience
6.7
On arrival having booked a classic room we were shown into a room which had wet paint on the floor. After some complaining we were grudgingly given a different room in the modern wing which was fine. The classic room was very poorly furnished and would not have been worth the money but the newer room was much nicer.
Restaurant Tip: Gallery cafe.
