This was my favourite hotel during our trip to Sri Lanka. The hotel has a lovely old-style charm, was clean and uncluttered. It's in an excellent location in the heart of the old town and fort. Our room was clean and the balcony had views overlooking the fort wall and the sea. Wifi worked perfectly, the shower was better than... More

We recently stayed at Khalids for 2 nights in Galle. It is in a quaint cobbled street, inside the Fort area. We were delighted to discover that our 2 bedroom booking translated to an entire house to ourselves, with a gorgeous courtyard, spic and span living area, and 2 chic, airconditioned rooms, beautifully furnished. The host Khalid, and the hostess... More

After reading good reviews and ratings we were really disappointed when we got to Khaled's. The room was really run-down but worst was that the owner/ host was really rude and greedy. We had talked to him on the phone before coming, but felt that he had fooled us. Traveling all over Sri Lanka for several weeks, this was the... More

A superb stay in terrific Galle, a town that reminded me of Olinda, near Recife, in Brazil. Our guest house has a superb location, close to the ocean and walls of the fort, close to restaurants and shops. Khalid's is a rustic family home, and we had a large room with a balcony with a bit of an Indian Ocean... More

We booked here for a one night stay. The guesthouse is not signposted, and when we called the guesthouse for directions, the owner spoke to our driver and berated him for not calling him AFTER we got into the fort, and cut the call without giving him any directions. When I called back to ask him if he was prepared... More

A fantastic room with a balcony overlooking the fort walls and the sea. A great location to visit the whole fort and easy access to all restaurants and bars. A lovely breakfast and helpful staff I would love to come back and stay again

There are quite a few guest houses inside the Fort now but I'm glad I chose Khalid's. There's no sign outside but all the locals know it and will be happy to point you in the right direction. Everywhere is very clean, the staff are busy all day keeping it that way. The manager was waiting for me, and took... More

This guest house in situation right in Galle Fort, which is great for wandering among shops and restaurants and to admire the local architecture, not to mention walking the fort walls to admire the views of the Indian Ocean. There are actually two buildings as part of the guest house, and I stayed in the secondary one. The building is... More

We booked this room via phone for our stay in Galle. $50 for the room seemed not cheap but the good reviews convinced us. When we arrived, our host showed us the room while we had to carry our baggage up the stairs. The room looked "ok" (we had much better rooms for the same price) to us and the... More

We stayed in the sea view double room at Khalid's for our final night in Sri Lanka. Very clean room with a great view over the wall and across the water. As we only stayed one night we didn't get much chance to use the balcony but would have been a nice place to relax one evening if we were... More
