My wife and I stayed for two days, and found DECO on 44 a very pleasant experience: Classic building, clean, comfortable room - and most important: A very friendly staff. Kitchen is superb. Location right at the centre of Fort yet peaceful is perfect for travelers interested in the historic environment.

We stayed here for four very comfortable nights. The room was clean and very comfortable. The hotel is situated right in the centre so we went out every breakfast and dinner to eat out as we thought the food and drink offering a bit overpriced. Other than that perfect! PS staff were very courteous too.

On our (4 week) stay in Galle Fort we ate here quite a few times as the food was delicious and service excellent the hotel more than superb ...decided that this would be our next place to stay on our return to Galle. I made a booking yesterday through Booking.com but the same day had to cancel due to flight problems. There was a bit of conflicting information coming through from Booking .com so telephoned direct to the hotel. I spoke to a very pleasant young lady who explained the cancellation had gone through and all was ok. I later received a very pleasing informative email from Tharanga detailing that understanding our situation there will be no penalty cancellation . This was such an efficient service and professionalism I felt the need to give Deco On 44 top marks. So thanks to all and hope to see you soon.

Classic style hotel inside galle fort on a very central location but peaceful inside the hotel and room. The hotel has a swimming pool to cool down during the extremely hot middays. The bed is very comfortable best in Sri Lanka and the room is spotless.
