lovely hotel but building and furniture old

good location,good service and good food
7.3
the hotel is located by the sea with opportunity for morning or afternoon walks with numerous locals.the hotel also has a very good salt water pool suitable for adults and children. the buffet breakfast had a good collection of sri lankan and western food. The buffet was however a bit crowded during the morning and it is adviseable to go a bit early for breakfast.The laundary and room service were very promt. On the downside the furnishings and the room was a bit old on the old wing. However this gives the traveller what srilanka was during the olden days. The reception staff were very busy that they could not be contacted easily perhaps because of the insufficient number. I would say that my experience in the hotel was a pleasant one.
Hotel Feature Tip: Try to get into the new wing or if in the old wing ask for a room with sea view

Great location but the rooms are not clean at all

The beach and the restaurant was very good.
5.3
One whole night we could not sleep at all. the room above us making lot of noise which went until the morning. When we questioned about it the next day they told us they were getting ready for a wedding. The hotel should allocate the rooms appropriately. The rooms floor and the bathroom floors were dirty but the linen was changed nicely. The staff was nice.

Location Good but very noisy for trafic all night

Location is good facing the Indian sea
4.3
Location is good but the room facing the road is quite noisy for traffice for all night, therefore we could not sleep well. Also hotel staff is not serious to take our request to change the room. If you insist to stay this old hotel, we recommend you to stay in ocean view room.

A different experience to the first time...

The oceanic spa suite in the Regency wing is well worth the upgrade!

When we first stayed at the Galle Face Hotel, we were in the Classic wing where the rooms although nice were very dated. This time we upgraded our room from the Standard Classic to an Oceanic Spa Suite in the Regency Wing which was absolutely amazing! The suite was enormous with plenty of room to lounge around and entertain guests should you so wish. The luxurious four poster bed can fit at least five people in it and ensures a good night's sleep. Perhaps the best part of the room, is the in-built spa in the generously-sized bathroom, which will quite comfortably accommodate two people! Perfect for pouring yourself into and recovering from a night of drinks and dancing at Amueseum.
Nightlife Tip: The Galle Face Hotel's nightclub, Amueseum is the place to be in Colombo. It has a great atmosphere and resident DJ Party spins a great mix of house and RnB that will keep you dancing till the early hours of the morning.

Rather like Fawlty Towers!

Good location on the sea front adjacent to the Galle Face. Generally helpful staff.
5.3
A large, rambling heritage hotel in need of a make over. That said it was quite good value. Unfortunately there was no wi-fi unless one paid an exhorbitant daily rate. In this day and age, old hotel otr not, free wi-fi is essential. Also, the service in the restaurant was incredibly slow!

Lovely hotel, good service

Beautiful salt water pool. Colonial style hotel
7.7
The galle face hotel is one of the oldest hotels in Sri lanka, and despite numerous renovations it still has the pleasant feel of a colonial style hotel. The pool is just gorgeous, and the service is good as well. One of the famous attractions of the hotel is the sundowner drink on the terrace outside the hotel. Everyone that stays in Colombo has at least seen it once in their life. The sunset on a good day is amazing. Definitely a good choice for a hotel in a Colombo
Nightlife Tip: Amuseum nightclub is just adjacent to the hotel.

A lovely traditional hotel that is next to the great galle Face Green for that memorable evening stroll. Make sure you go for the regency room as they are newer but still have style.

Colonial charm & sunsets

Location, right on the water
8.3
While the outside of the building doesn't look as if it has been painted since it was built the interior is perfectly satisfactory - we were in the Regency Wing. We only had one brief night in Colombo so were happy to stay at the hotel for the evening due to its location - just lovely right on the water where you can sit with a drink and watch the sun go down. There are two or three places to eat at the hotel, both inside and out. The pool is also a welcome facility after walking the streets for the afternoon. You can get food and drinks poolside. Even though the hotel is a little tired I would still recommend it, mainly for location.
