    Lacking maintenance ”

    It was a great hotel during my previous stays however the bathrooms require urgent attention. Particularly the flushing and mold and urine stains not cleaned adequately. The room is spacious and comfortable and I had the ocean view superior room. The location couldn’t be better and very safe. The staff needs adequate training in courtesy and politeness. Despite the problems I would stay in this hotel again.

    Excellent stay”

    Have had many hotel experiences in the past and Hotel Galadari reached my number one. From the staff to the services including a wonderful hair and beauty Salon (gave such a wonderful service within a constrained amount of time), this hotel gives their guests such a warm welcome that makes you feel the stay, just like home.

    Nice Hotel with Poor Service & Poor Maintenance”

    This hotel used to be a great hotel before it became Galadari. Today it lacks the adequate upgrading and maintenance. The toilet is a hit or miss, it swirls and only on subsequent attempts goes down, the problem is not only in my room but apparently throughout the hotel. The lobby bar is filled with servers who have no training in courtesy, rude and utterly despicable service. It needs a new manager. Some good staff make up for the horrendous staff. Cleanliness in the room is awful, I had to ask them to come clean up the mildew in the shower and the urine remnants in the toilet. I do not recommend this hotel, nor do I plan to stay here again. Ugh.

    Room service terrible. Received stale hamburger. When I complained, they brought a fresh one. At the breakfast, you ask for something, either they are late or never comes. Facilities in the room nıt working. They replaced fridge and phone after 8 hours we checked in. Rooms are old. I only stayed for its location. Never stay here. It represents 2 starts hotel

    Location and service make it a great option”

    The Hotel is not a modern one, however it is well maintained. We had a room with ocean view which is great. Service is excellent, and staff is always willing to help guests with a warm smile in their faces. Breakfast offers a well-thought variety of food including options from other Asian countries. I would recommend the administration to improve the pool area, the furniture is old and not comfortable, and the pool is not inviting. They could take advantage of its wonderful location in front of the sea.

    Perfect location in Colombo”

    The location of the Galadari Hotel is wonderful, it is walk distance to the Galle Face Green, Dutch Hospital and Crescat Mall. We stayed during New Year's evening and there were many different and good options in the Hotel. Breakfast offered a great variety of bread, eggs, cereals and fruits. The room was clean and good size, but the furniture should be renovated, it looks old and the carpet is not in very good shape. I would recommend the hotel to offer the wi-fi service as a complement, like almost all hotels nowadays. It is free onky for some hours.

    New Year's Eve at Galadari”

    Location, staff, room service

    This is the second tome we come to Galadari for New Year's eve. Its location makes it a great place to stay. It has a beautiful sea view and it is located close to a very unique place: The Dutch Hospital, where you can find good food, nice bars, spas, and small stores with Sri Lankan arts and crafts.

    Location, comfort & cleanliness

    The stay was good, rooms were clean and the location is very convenient for business travelers as it is close to the Trade centre and also not too far from the some of the attractions and shopping. It is also close to the beach area, a nice walk in the evenings, and nice view from the pool area and room as well. The area is very secure and safe to walk around. Was a good stay over all.

    We spend only one night, but it was enough to see the quality of the hotel. The staff is always kind and helpful. The location is great, in front of the sea, close to Dutch Hospital and Crescat Mall, and central to any activity you want to do. The pool is also great, since it provides a nice view.

    The price was good compared to the other 5 star hotels in the area which is why we booked it as we had to attend a wedding close by.staff are good.the lobby and ground area has been newly refurbished.however the rooms are very old and dated.the floor was fully carpeted and carpet looked very old.shower was good but water leaked out into the rest of the bathroom each time you had a shower.room is very big which was a positive.the gym was OK but again the equipment is quite old but is still ok for a work out.overall I would say it's an OK hotel for the price you pay

    Tired and In need of Refreshment”

    With the emergence of the big global hotel brands in Colombo the poor Galadari is failing to keep pace with the 5 and 4 star hotel scene in CMB. The rumour is that its Middle Eastern owner is trying to sell, which means a refresh is not on the cards anytime soon.
