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

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...

We stayed five nights and altogether it was a good time. We were at the front and had the balcony to ourselves as the other room was unlet. It would be less private if people in the other room. The air con still makes the bathroom very hot but Sabri, the owners son is going to fix this. Mrs Khalid... More

I stayed for eight nights in 2004.(december 2012 is wrong but I had to put something there) I am writing this now because in the reviews I read no one has yet to mention the fact Mrs. Khalid might be the best cook in the world. Apparently there have been renovations. In the photos I noticed some of the same... More
