The outside of this hotel looks impressive but the rooms and bathrooms are a little tired. However, they are large and more than adequate. The lobby and arrangement of restaurants and the bar are excellent as a very interesting and inviting ambience is created. The breakfast spread was huge and caters for all pallets. The choice for dinner was also...

My customer reserved this hotel for a business meeting and dinner. We had about 40 guests. The set up was ok - the technician made sure everything was working. The problem was the party next door took celebration to a whole other level. We had to wait until they stopped parading in the hall beating on drums and yelling at...

The Galadari is in a great spot in Colombo - you have the Dutch hospital just behind it with one of the best Crab restaurants I've been too and it's right by the sea. Unfortunately, it rained in Sri Lanka whilst I was there for 2 nights but everything about Colombo was serene. The people are really friendly and proud...

My stay in Galadari was just a night. The location of the hotel is perfect. Galle Face beach is very near. Behind the hotel there are some restaurants and bars worth visiting. some Room was okay. Furtinures slightly old but it didn't really matter. Bed was comfy which was what I really needed to be.

Coffe shop buffet is terrible and it cost LKR 2500 per person. Food is large scale but no taste. and it is very difficult to dine there because too many managers and supervisors walking by our table without a reason. very disturbing and no peacefulness, i will not recommend for the future people to dine there.
