I ended up here because of a broken down Emirates plane and an unexpected emergency diversion to Colombo. The hotel seemed a very long (and sometimes hair raising) drive from the airport. The Lobby is nice and it looks like it was once the height of luxury - a few decades ago. Staff were friendly and the breakfast was superb....

It's a very good hotel esp for families, business trips or arab visitors. Nice location, Ocean view but the rooms right the elevator are the best. Nice and helpful staff. Great breakfast open buffet where all what you can imagine is offered. It's very close to the famous market Petah as well as being close to the famous Red Mosque....

Rooms were shabby, furniture fully depreciated with no wifi on our floor. Needs immediate refurbishment and repairs. Location, lobby area and views are the only solace. Very old and worn out property. Kids also felt miserable. Won't stay again.

the location, staff and the lobby of the hotel is ok but the rooms are terribly outdated. We were on the 5th floor and had what was called a superior room. Upon initial entry itself the room had a bad smell; kinda like everything in there (carpets, curtains, etc) were damp. I couldnt handle it and tried opening the windows...

My husband and I stayed at Galadari Hotel for one night and it was pretty good. The hotel is located in a strategic place, just at the heart of the business district in Colombo, and just in front of the Indian Ocean. Our room on the tenth floor was clean and had a lovely sea view. at night we enjoyed...
