A well renovated small Dutch Hotel situated in the centre of the fort. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Evening meal and breakfast was very good. Room spacious and lovely swimming pool in a small courtyard.

My wife and I spent 3 days of our honeymoon period in February at Deco on 44. From the moment we arrived till we left, we had a fantastic time. The finer points: (1) Spacious and comfortable room, facing the swimming pool. Hop, skip, and splash! (2) Very nice location within Galle Fort. Walking distance from the light house, museum,... More

Hotel is well located within the old city with everything on walking distance. We had the rooms next to the pool. Spacious and clean rooms with a nice bathroom. The staff did and excellent job making the room nice with flowers & towel elephant creatures. Breakfast was also nice and can be served outside. Pool is good.

I found this little hotel on Agoda and booked the deluxe room by the pool. Good enough if you're there for a short stay. We sure have had better deals in nicer places in Sri Lanka , but I guess the Fort overall is pricey.. The turn down service was really cute, as they even folded up all my clothes... More

Deco on 44 is a beautiful art deco hotel. Our room was very spacious and comfortable. The staff made delightful decorations on the bed each evening, e.g. a swan made from a towel, plus surrounding flower petals. The manager and staff were very friendly and helpful. And the swimming pool made for brilliant relaxation after exploring the old town. A... More

We chose this hotel for its art deco charm & all the good reviews we read on here. We were not disappointed! We stayed here for two nights and wished we could have stayed longer. Our room was at the front of the hotel with a balcony overlooking the front courtyard. The room was huge, as was the bathroom. The... More

We loved this cute boutique hotel perfectly located in the fort. Both the bathroom and bedroom were huge, if a little dark. Not so sure about the false wall between the bedroom and bathroom as you could hear everything going on in there ! The view over the pool was lovely and indeed the pool is very pleasant when its...

I only stayed at Deco on 44 for one night but it was wonderful. I had visited Sri Lanka last year and decided if I came back to Galle I would stay within the walls of fort, Good choice. Deco is a fantastic period boutique hotel with wonderful rooms, excellent service, great food and a fantastic pool in the courtyard.... More

We loved this hotel. It has a great location right in the heart of the fort, staff were very attentive and most of all the actual building and decor itself is simply stunning. We had a suite on the first floor with a balcony which was huge, great views over the rooftops at sunset. The bedroom and bathroom was big,... More

I traveled with 2 friends to Sri Lanka in July. we booked Deco on 44 the night before we arrived in Galle. It is ideally located in the beautiful fort where we spent the afternoon meandering along the streets. I can honestly say that Deco on 44 is the most beautiful place I have ever stayed at. It's decor is... More
