located in the centre of Galle fort, it oozes charm and calm, A peaceful setting just off the main road in the fort. Service and rooms were perfect. Small cool swimming pool in a courtyard beside the groundfloor rooms. We only stayed one night, but it was memorable. Would recommend this to anyone visiting Galle.

We spent 4 nights here recently and have to say that we agree with all other reviews. We had a really nice, relaxing time here. It is a haven of calm, made better by the lovely, attentive staff, who are very friendly and extremely helpful. We had a junior suite, which was adequate, but not luxurious! The food was very...

Deco on 44 has outstanding service. The staff were friendly but incredibly professional. This hotel is located in the middle of Galle Fort within easy walking distance of anything you want to see. There aren't many rooms. We stayed on the ground floor with a pool view room. It is a relatively small room, very simply decorated, just a bed... More

We loved this old Art Deco hotel. The room was a little stark, but could not be faulted. The service, and meals excellent. The location in the middle of Galle Fort was fabulous. I would love to stay here again if ever I return to Galle.

Helpful staff and delicious Sri Lankan food. We were reluctant to eat here as there were so many other restaurants in Galle fort to choose from but we are glad we did. We have rice and curry and it was delicious.

We stayed here for 3 days in January. Delighted with the room (the Sun) which has a terrace and overlooks the front garden and charming busy little street. Don't miss to do the cooking class which other reviewers have already commented on. We liked the Art Deco feel, the attentive service, the nicely prepared breakfast, early morning swims in the...

While searching for hotels during the long weekend inside the galle fort, came across Deco on 44 through trip advisor and agoda. The pictures and the reviews of the place was promising and with one call we booked the place for a night. Must say the price we've got is far cheaper than stated in agoda. They welcomed us by...

we only stayed one night but it was worth the stay. Although this is only a small hotel it does have a swimming pool, tucked away in front of the outside rooms which was a welcome site after walking around Galle. the staff were helpful and friendly and although the room was a little basic , it was comfortable and...

Three nice days here to complete our holiday. Galle is an oasis of peace from the awful coastal strip. Hotel staff were lovely. Our room beside the lovely pool was great. The decorative touch of fresh flower petals on freshly made beds was lovely. We didn't eat dinner here so nothing to say about food. Very nice dining rooms.
