OK I confess I got a great deal on Agoda; but that was the Universe looking after us as otherwise we may not have had the chance to experience was a great place this is. It's the staff that make the hotel (although it's charming art deco architecture cannot be overlooked). This is a terrific base in Galle Fort, ideally... More

Don't bother staying anywhere else in Galle - this is the best. Beautiful hotel and rooms in a great location. By far the best service I experienced anywhere in Sri Lanka - friendly, helpful and professional, and just always going above and beyond. One example is we spent a couple of hours by the pool and completely unprompted one of... More

You can’t help but be a little sceptical when you get a good deal on such a highly rated hotel, but I need not have worried with Deco on 44: it was outstanding. In a city jam-packed with great boutique accommodation Deco on 44 must be near the top. I stayed in one of three rooms facing the pool, literally... More

if you want the perfect place to stay in Galle Fort and are after a boutique art deco experience then this is the place. Really great food, service, friendliness. Laundry is expensive, but is timely and done in-house.

On our 1st visit to Galle last year (2014) we'd seen this beautiful, small hotel located in the Galle Fort. And we knew: "this is where we want to stay on our next visit. We really like the great ambiance of the place. The owners certainly have an eye for detail. As the name of the hotel suggests the decor... More

Stayed for 2 nights at the end of a 5 day tour before getting the train to Colombo. Our room was spacious and the bed was decorated differently each night. The door opened onto the pool area, a great place to relax. This hotel is central in the fort with the bus station and Galle town all within walking distance.... More

This hotel, rather new hotel, was fabulous in every way and exceeded our expectations. The rooms were brilliant and we arrived home every day to find rose petals on our beds and elephant key rings. The staff were amazingly friendly and helpful; arranging yuk tuk rides, posting letters and preparing breakfast an hour early on our departure day. The food... More
