We stayed here for 1 night at short notice as the place we wanted to stay was fully booked. They were very accommodating and managed to fit us in. The guesthouse is very small and only has two rooms, but this allows for a more personal service and greater attention. The room was very large, the bed was very comfy. The bathroom was outside of the bedroom, but was very large and included both a bath and a shower. There was also a balcony opposite our room which provided a great spot to watch the sunset. The only downside to this guesthouse is that it doesn't provide food, but this isn't much of an issue, and it certainly offers good value for money. I would definitely recommend staying here!

Good location, beds & price! We stayed for a night and would have extended if not for our tight itinerary. The guesthouse faces the sea and do wake up early to catch the sunrise and have a slow morning walk around the neighbourhood.

Overall, we felt safe throughout our stay.

Room Tip: The master room on the 3rd floor has a bigger space

Don't hesitate, if you want a nice clean room in Galle or surrounding choose this one!
The staff is very friendly! We had a nice time talking with the owners/staff.
The location and view is also great. Within the old Galle fort. From the room you can see the wall and sea.

We didn´t book anything in Galle and by chance we found the Fort De 19 , The location is perfect, inside of the Fort and with beautifull views to the fort and sea from the balcony (they have only two rooms, we dont know if the other room has views too). The room was beautiful, very clean, A/c, big enough, and with a balcony. The host was very friendly, kind and helpful. We really recommend it to everyone.

Room Tip: We loved the room with balcony

This place was fantastic. The staff is really friendly, makes sure you have a prefect stay. The rooms are beautiful and spotless. You have your own roof terrace looking over the sea. Good location as well, 5 min. walk to the centre.
