We are a couple in our late twenties and we stayed at Deco on 44 in January 2016. We stayed in a Deluxe room which was nicely decorated and very clean. The staff were friendly and helpful. We were very amused to see that they had placed my glasses on the nose of a folded towel elephant during a turn... More

Stayed over a few nights at this unusual small hotel. The staff are attentive and very friendly .. the room I had was directly on the poolside which I found quiet and really pleasant for a swim. The food especially the evening choices are great .. well recomended. Attention to the rooms is also excellent.

Great place for a cool and relaxing beer with a snack after wondering around Fort all day. Staff are friendly and welcoming, good ambiance and amazing décor! Our favourite dish is the pumpkin and lemongrass soup.

The hotel is right in the centre of the fort where most of the interesting and historical buildings are. It's a small boutique hotel but has a very good restaurant, a jewellery shop, a nice swimming pool and plenty of space. The colonial building retains its original attractive features and relaxing feel. Our room was large, well equipped and has... More

We stayed at Deco on 44 for one night during our ten-day stay in south Sri Lanka. It is an exquisite period hotel, which was actually used as a home until four years ago. The hotel has been carefully restored preserving as many 1930s features as possible. We enjoyed the architecture. It is a perfect place to stay within the... More

The hotel is right in the heart of the old Fort, and handy to everything. There is a nice garden in front, set with metal patio furniture, for night time dining. The verandah has a few tables with deco seating, for dining. The problem is the standards. Someone doesn't have an "eye". There is a garish red jacquard curtain behind... More

We stayed in the Deco just one night, however, it was a pleasant stay with attentive staff, good rooms and a really good dinner. Maybe not the best in our 28 day stay, but certainly one of the best. The location of the Deco in the Fort invites strolling around in the evenings.

This is a lovingly restored/maintained building right in the Dutch quarter of Galle. Situated in a small back Street but close to the lighthouse. We only stayed one night as we completed our travels and wanted to stay here before our final 4 days beach relaxing. We had the Triton room which was spacious and with a good sized bathroom... More

A beautiful deco themed hotel in the old fort area. We stayed in the Neptune suite overlooking the swimming pool. We didn't hear any traffic news and whilst traditional the room was very comfortable and the staff were helpful and polite. Breakfast was enormous and its lovely to eat on the veranda watching the world go by. We stayed just... More

After traveling for 3 weeks, we came to Deco on 44 to relax and prepare for our trip home and were not disappointed. The hotel building is gorgeous, stylish with a relaxed, peaceful vibe. Staff are attentive but not intrusive. We stayed in a lovely room by the pool, enjoyed dinner, drinks and breakfast at restaurant, swimming in the pool... More
