After what appears to be the 'standard' tour of Sri Lanka, characterized by a succession of large hotels of good quality, but lacking that personal touch (oh, how one comes to hate buffet style meals!), it is a real joy to stay in Deco on 44. A total of only seven rooms means that you are not a number, but... More

It's not often a hotel hits the spot like this one did. It's smack bang in the middle of the awesome Galle fort. You're spoiled for things to do inside the fort. Lots of culture, history, art, shopping and eating. Nowhere is more than ten minutes away so we felt perfectly safe going for a late night wander. Infinite choice... More

We stayed here for one night and it was perfect for what we were after. Lovely clean and elegant boutique rooms, great service, and a fantastic location in the middle of the quaint fortified town of Galle. Galle is a must location to visit and it deserves at the very least one nights stay there to experience it all properly.... More

Came for lunch with my family. Enjoyed the warm hospitality. Food was very nice. A very nice place with friendly staff.Though the side view just resembles of a renovated old house, I was surprised with the beautiful interior design.

It was a very beautiful visit last for three nights. Very clean and excellent staff, a very delicious breakfast. It is a recommended place where you don't have to worry about anything except your own joyful.

Enquired about price and was told 250 dollars for junior suite or 215 for room but that we could have suite for price of room. declined as little expensive. Was then told we could have it for 185 dollars. Accepted as thought suite would be fun experience in this grand hotel. Arrived with bag only to be told that the... More

Deco on 44 is located within the walls of the fort which is a beautiful neighborhood with many tourist attractions. The hotel offers luxurious rooms with all amenities, very clean and well decorated. The hotel's restaurant is fantastic, with delicious plates.

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.
