Khalid was a great host with plenty of good advice about where to eat in Galle Fort. Our room was very well appointed and comfortable with an excellent balcony overlooking the Fort Walls, catching the sea breeze. A great location for our two night stay in Galle Fort. Khalid also arranged tuk tuks and a car for us at good... More

We had a great stay at Khalid's guesthouse, and wished we were there longer than just one night! The guesthouse is in a fantastic location, and is beautifully furnished. Rooms are spacious and have their own balconies. Sabri was a very friendly and helpful host. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting to stay in the Fort!

Great location that is just in a lively street inside Galle Fort. Clean room with a nice terrace. Friendly staffs even provided us food when we came in very late night. Very nice experience to see sunrise and sunset on Fort :-))

Modern and very good located guest house. You are close to everything. The room was big enough, clean and quiet. Bed maybe short (like almost everywhere in Sri Lanka) but comfirtable. Bathroom was hudge with modern shower and warm water. Staff is very friendly.

The location of this place is really amazing! Right in the center of the Galle fort, overviewing the Indian Ocean, many restaurants just around the corner. The friendliness when we arrived and throughout our stay was really outstanding and we got some very good advice from the staff. This is one hotel to recommend, so there you go!

I am writing this review while laying on a nice colonial mosquito-proof bed in Khalid's. The location couldn't be better. You will be in the center of Galle's fort, in the most nice street, few steps away from restaurants, shops, spa etc. literally few steps away... The room is very clean, air conditioned, the bathroom is modern but fits well,... More

Centrally located in Galle Fort, Khalid's is a great and peaceful spot to explore the area. You live in a beautiful colonial building which is nicely furnished. The rooms (I had one with balcony) are spacious and the balcony offers a nice sea view. The family and the staff are very friendly and helpful if you have any concerns. It's... More

We stayed at Mrs. Khalid's which turned out to be the most interesting stay. The house is historical architecturally as well as one of the very first B/B's in Sri Lanka. Years of experience simply justify the accommodation standards and quality. The rooms are tastefully furnished comfy beds and superb bathrooms with good water pressure on to your shower. The...
