      Very pleasant staff, very helpful, checking in & out was pretty smooth. Fantastic location. If one's travelling with kids, they'll enjoy the beachfront... though not ideal for swimming.

      Recreational facil;ities(Pool table etc) had to be paid for!! Pool was free to use. Have to be wary when they're billing you as there was an issue of charging the credit card again(which was later resolved).Unless one is immediately alerted (from his/her bank via sms etc) it can cause a lot of inconvenience later.

      Pleasant and helpful staff members at Galadari. Food was good enough at least to satisfy my asian palate's craving.

      Property needs urgent refurbishment. In the current state I think the price is on the higher side and I would only stay again at the Galadari if the room rents were cheaper. Heavy security around the area due to parliament house being on the opposite side of the road.

      the furniture in this hotel very bad

      Quite helpful, professional and friendly staff. Good location on the sea shore in the center of Clombo city. Excellent view from the Calfornia Grill rooftop restaurant. Good variety of food in hotel restaurants.

      Ageing facility, some refreshment and renovation needed. Bathroom needs renovation. Room seems to be a bit overpriced keeping in mind it's current condition. A number of hidden supplimentary charges are adding up to the bill.

      I did not like any thing. Well, the location is good - central, and you the ocean is across the road. If you get the room with sea view you can see the ocean form your window which is nice, but doesn't pay off for all other things.

      The hotel is totally outdated and needs renovation.The rooms smelled bad and when asked about it they brought toilet refresher. The Spa center is a small room which looks a a storage room, but the massage table is inside. The service is under average and staff is behaving unprofessional. In the end I changed the hotel because i didn't feel safe any more. In Colombo you get other hotels for the same price (Cinnamon) or for a bit higher rate for ca. 20-30 USD (Hilton).

      The California Grill restaurant, the staff were friendly and the food was excellent.

      The swimming pool needs to be maintained, the childrens play area needs to be cleaned up a little and the bath needs upgrading- but otherwise, an amazing hotel!

      4.2

      Not much apart from the lady that assisted at the reception who was very friendly.

      We were upgraded to the Presidential floor which was appalling. The room standard size, bathroom small. Nod regarding the facilities. Breakfast in the executive lounge disgusting. Breakfast in main restaurant poor. Had to share a table. Overcrowded.

      Liked the food. "buffet theme nights".

      Did not particularly like the room as it was quite old and the hot water took ages to warm up.

      Because safety I chooce this hotel, it is very nearly soider control district.

      Training the staff secvice connection about cumstomer service is first things for the hotel management. for example, hotel room service is not very well, some service man make mistake to ask me enter my room for private service, but I did'nt ask this sevice. He is very anger to me, and interrupt take phone to call the room service. This service attitude did'nt respect to cumstomer. The check-in counter also not train very well, check-in pay money and check-out also must pay money, but not explain why do this to cumstomer.
