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

Stayed here for 3 nights at the end of our trip to Sri Lanka, this is a great little hotel within the fort area so everything is within easy walking distance from your room. We had a poolside room which was very comfortable, great shower/bathroom and really good free Wifi. Food was good, especially the breakfast, and we had a... More

Deco on 44 is a very special hotel in a very special country. At Deco, nothing was too much trouble for any member of staff. The attention to detail and care for clients is the best I've ever experienced. The hotel is in a lovely location, close to everything -yet quiet. It is spotless and provides the best quality in...

This review is for the Spa Sandeshaya only, we did not stay at the Deco on 44 hotel. The massage was the best we've ever had - the masseuse trained in 5 star hotel spas in the Middle East so you will be guaranteed perfect relaxation. Enjoy!!!!!!!
