Very nice place and great people. Clean room, nice bathroom and a great balcony in a quiet area right in the fort district. And all this for a real fair price (about $15). I will definitely talk about it and strongly recommend it.

The Villa is actually at the top of a Jewelries store, we called ahead and made a booking with Shafa. He is very friendly and helpful. We got a room upstairs at the front. The room has a double bed with mosquito net and an attached toilet with hot water. The room and toilet is very tight, you can only... More

We arrived after a full day of traveling, our room was nice and quiet with a big bed and place to store close. The price was very reasonable for Galle. There is an upstairs terrace over looking the street where you can sit and relax. The people running the jewelry store downstairs were very nice and helpful.

Stayed here one night, the room was super small. The bathroom was tiny! The bed was not at all comfortable. But the good thing is, it's a cheap place right inside Galle Fort, located very close to the fort wall and light tower so you can hang out the whole while and come back to sleep. The food in the...

There is not something really special about this place, but it's just very good. The location is brilliant, the rooms very clean, bathroom clean, and staff is friendly. Very good value for money. And before I forget, the balcony was really nice. We had a very good stay here. And food wise, there is so much in the old fort,... More

We stayed here for one night and it was enough! The room was very small but really clean and had a nice atmosphere. The best thing about this place is the location. Its located really close to the light tower and the mosque (although Galle fort is not that big). Its an ok place to stay.

The best points about this place was its bathroom and location. It's on Leynbann Street and is close to the mosque and Lighthouse, just 5 mins walk away. On the same street you'll find different places to eat and drink- overall it's a quaint neighbourhood. I especially like this place for its little touches- some racks to hang clothes, a... More

Situated within the old fort area in Galle along Leybaan st, Mr Fazzal and his staff infused a homeliness to this quaint little guesthouse. Rooms at $15sgd are very small after a double king size bed, but we had a balcony where we could chill. Overall a cosy experience for one night. Highly recommended for the budget traveller!

This guesthouse is in a great location 50m to the lighthouse inside the Galle Fort. The family has lived in the house for generations and their main business is sourcing cutting and selling sapphires, which seems to be a major industry in SL. The room is definitely budget but comfortable sleeping inside the mosquito net and fan.(I hate aircon). I... More
