    Antique homestay with friendly service in a brilliant location”

    The location of this place was superb - within one minute of walking out the door you are either in the main shopping street full of lovely shops and coffee / gelato bars and restaurants or at one of the best corners of the fort in the other direction where you can see the sunset and the lighthouse. Loved Galle Fort so much. I’m not one for touristy places but the history and architecture here is all around and it’s just lovely. Also, after 3 weeks of travelling, the home comforts of an iced coffee or avocado and poached eggs for breakfast is appealing! Back to the accommodation, it was around a ten minute walk from the train station and that was a lovely opportunity to see the fort and walk some of the side streets. The bed was one of the comfiest I’ve had with a full four poster mozzie net! Air con was good as was the WiFi. Nice hot shower and breakfast. Classic old house. The lady owner was lovely and helped me with washing. Her daughter spoke good English. Would return!

    A nice place to stay with friendly owner”

    This is a big house and owner and her family staying here too. The location is good and 5 minute walk to the seaside. The bed is comfortable, both aircond and ceiling fan working well. High speed wifi as well. The breakfast prepared by owner is good and a lot to eat. The only thing that bother me is the water pressure is a bit low, so i can‘t really enjoy a good shower.

    A very basic homestay with friendly staff and great location”

    This is an ok cheap option. The rooms at Albert's are very small and basic. Unfortunately the air conditioning was broken when we stayed, making the room unbearably hot! Friendly staff with a big breakfast. Great location near to the lighthouse and other main attractions in Galle.

    Excellent location in the fort”

    The room was quite small but had charm and character with a four poster bed. There was a small shared balcony where you could sit outside. It was in a very attractive part of the fort and very convenient for exploring the area, shops and restaurants. It was surprisingly quiet at night, the bed was comfortable, the shower was hot and wi-fi was good. The lady running it was very friendly and provided a lovely and varied breakfast - egg hoppers on request!

    Good room, nice management, very good location”

    The guesthouse itself feels a bit strange initially, its a kind of long odd building, and very much a homestay feel, but actually the room was very good, very clean, excellent wifi (best we had in Sri Lanka), good shower, nice big bathroom, good AC, nice and light with two windows, decent balcony. The room was on the smaller side, the bed also, but not uncomfortably small. The curtains on the windows felt a little easy to see in. It seemed as though there were other rooms on the ground floor, which would not be so good to stay in, but this room was decent. The staff were nice and helpful (mother and daughter) and breakfast was very good - the only complaint was there was far too much of it! Recommended as an affordable option in Colombo.

    Quaint Homey guest house”

    It was a renovated old house with only 3 guest rooms which are quite roomy. The bathroom was also very spacious but very bare of any amenities and sanitary accessories. The bedroom too was very sparsely furnished with a queen bed, small dresser and a small desk. The owner and her daughter, Dilki who speaks excellent English are both very friendly and helpful. We had excellent breakfast both mornings we were there, as the owner Ranjani is very obliging and will cook to order to your preference. Dilki has said she has ordered more furniture for the rooms and hopefully the next guests will find bedside tables and table lamps for reading as well.

    Must live here in Galle”

    Good location near the sea, very friendly owner, best breakfast

    I have to admit that before I came to Albert Guest House, I was not sure about my booking as there were only two reviews on Agoda. But when I arrive here, all my uncertainties had gone! The location is very good, in a small and quite lane and near the seaside. The room is quite clean and tidy and in the second floor with balcony outside. It's very relax to sit in the chair on the balcony. The owners, Dilki and her mother, they are very friendly. The mother cannot speak English but she did a lot things for us, making me feel at home. Dilki is a nice local girl whose English is very good. They prepared us an best ever local style breakfast in LK. I strongly recommend everyone to stay in this Guest house. 强烈推荐住在这一些,在古堡里,地理位置幽静但却靠近海边看日出的地方。房主是母女二人,非常老实本分纯朴又热情的当地人。早餐非常本地化,妈妈亲近煎饼给我们吃,还有辣椒揶丝,酸奶,水果,面包,煎蛋。房间很干净,是小碎花床单,还有阳光的味道。有蚊帐所以不必担心蚊子,卫生间宽敞而且热水很好。

    Einfache saubere Unterkunft mitten in Galle. Alles ist fußläufig zu erreichen, Restaurants, Bars und Geschäfte. Das Frühstück wurde frisch zubereitet, wer möchte, auch mit leckerem Curry. Bett, Bad und Klima waren ok. Lediglich die Hellhörigkeit der Nachbarzimmer ist nicht angenehm. Aber für eine oder zwei Nächte ok.

    Zeer eenvoudig guesthouse. ”

    De ligging van het guesthouse is super, centraal in het fort. De kamer op de eerste verdieping ) is zeer eenvoudig, wel goed voor een paar nachten als luxe niet belangrijk is. Moeder en dochter runnen het samen. Moeder verzorgd het onbijt, dat zeer ruim is. Ook bakt zij heerlijke cake! Dochter spreekt goed Engels, beiden heel vriendelijk.

    浴室沒有提供洗髮精、沐浴乳不打緊,但房間上面是通的,完全沒隔音啊。睡到一半突然被隔壁吵醒,但對方也只是普通在房間講話而已。過去跟對方說情況,他們也馬上安靜,但這不是客人問題而是屋子本身設計有問題。
