            Comfortable and Clean with a Great Location”

            I spent more time than I normally would in the room because I was sick with a cold. It was a comfortable and clean place with lovely and helpful staff. The price was a bit more expensive than I would have liked, but I think it is the amount of government taxes added on that make it more expensive than it should be, rather than the business charging too much. Saying that, the accomodation delivered on all it promised and is a great choice if you would like to stay in the fort. Comfortable bed, spacious bathroom, lots of TV channels if you are sick in bed and great location for leisurely walks. You are invited to use the pool at 44 by deco. The breakfast was more than I expected too. Only thing I missed was a kettle and complimentary tea in the room. Overall a good stay at 56 by deco and I would definitely consider staying here again. Thank you.

            56 by Deco is right at the heart of the Galle Fort, within earshot of some of the best restaurants. Staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. Despite its central location, the surrounding is very quiet, making it the perfect place to unwind.

            We could not have had better service than we did at 56 by Deco. They were so incredibly friendly and helpful - and I think j sometimes they cleaned three times per day! The location is perfect. Central and easy for the fort. We didn't love the fort as it is very very touristy, but the architecture and history are interesting.

            would stay here again if I come back to Galle”

            I had one of the best stay in Sri Lanka, very clean, comfortable; and the staff is friendly, kind and full of smiles. Great breakfast. Everything in the room works great. You can use the pool in the sister hotel at Deco 44.

            We only stayed one night, but we loved it. It was so conveniently placed in the heart of Galle Fort, which made it accessible to a lot of other places. The staff were friendly and accommodating too. Would recommend this place to other couples.

            A night in Galle: Galle was our last stop and we were wondering if we should go big..”

            And fancy.. or something more moderate. When we saw a deal on 56@decco we knew this was the best value we could get. When we reached the hotel it was perfectly located in the centre of the fort area. Couldn’t have picked a better location. The room had a funny smell when we arrived but the staff quickly took care of that. The room was spacious and the bed comfortable. Water ran perfectly with hot water and great pressure. Wifi worked. A bit choppy. Staff were with big smiles and accommodating. Overall very pleasant. No major complaints.

            Best hotel in Galle even Srilanka”

            PRO: super priceable, they have all the equipment what you need, they servers are very friendly, the place is also awesome in the cretrel fort, and preety clean. Anyway the best hotel i lived in SL. CON: i've lived in big bed room and double decks room. But i found that thr big bed is better than double decks cause only one floor is much convinient than two floors and the double deckers room(no.3) the washroom cannot pull off all the shower water...

            Comfortable stay in a neat hotel!”

            The hotel is located perfectly in the middle of the fort. You can reach everything within an short walk but still sleep calm. The room was clean (doppeldecker) and nicely furnished. The bathroom was big enough and modern. We tried the breakfast and it was good (fruit platter, sri lankan omlette, fresh juice, coffee/tea, Toast, butter, jam). Only a pool was missing, but you can swim at the beach nearby.

            Staff were wonderful and definitely the best part of my hotel stay. Location is good inside the old fort area. Room was ok, but bathroom had a very strong smell that goes right up to the lofted bedroom - made for very unpleasant time spent time in room.
