    Great location, didn’t give wifi code I found it my self and works well, electricity is faulty so be careful when charging, bathroom needs a good scrubbing very mouldy and the toilets leak none stop, beds are comfy, the staff are friendly but they did rip us off with the tuktuks at the end by paying double. Can find better out there :)

    Stay at Bouganvilla”

    The location is amazing no douth but the place is really bad to stay in, the rooms are very small, plumbing facility was very bad, there were no curtains in the room.There was these one middle-aged lady who was a caretaker did maange to attend our requests she has been nice. But the owner needs to attend the plumbing issue in one of the bathroom there was a WC leakage, therefore my friend took a room change in her second room the drainage slop was not proper so there was a swimming pool in the bathroom plus the washbasin drain pipe was left out on the floor

    very convenient. right in the middle of the fort. nice balcony to see the very interesting neighbourhood. lovely and friendly family. 15 mins walk from Galle bus station. the only thing is that it is difficult to get beer inside the fort area if you like one in the evening. most restaurants sell them secretly and have it only when you ask.

    A Gem of a place, if improved”

    1. It is a house, which is understood. It is good if house owners were neatly Dressed when guests are around. 2. Place was clean, but broken equipment were not repaired. Broken commode seats, bathroom doors without locks etc. These matter for travelers.

    The outside looks quite nice and the location is excellent but it's pretty rundown inside. The room is in need of proper cleaning and renovation. We also met a huge cockroach in our room. The owner family was nice and helpful.

    Mediocre”

    Cheaper place in Galle fort, owner tried to overcharge for taxi services. Real annoying when you're staying in a place and they want more than the guys on the street for transport. Other than that it's ok to stay for a night. Clean enough small rooms, no towels, ac works well.

    small and hot room in a good location”

    When We arrive they were over booked so they send us To The guesthouse across The street.. The second night We stayed here. The place is in a perfect location if you have short time To visit Galle, Just in The middle of The fort. The room was extremely small And didnt have Windows. The fan didnt work so We have To ask for a standing fan. There was a broken pipe in The bathroom so it was always wet. No hot water. The bed is really big And ok. The breakfast is good. A lot of fruit, eggs, tea/cofee.

    It was a really pleasant stay two days there, everything is old and reminds me of my mom's old house, very 1980s! Very good location inside the Galle Fort, and affordable charges! But The faculties are old and the room sometimes very hot! But anyway very funny the host could make you enjoy here

    Great deal in Galle”

    Location, breakfast, easy-going staff

    At the last minute, we asked to change our reservation by moving it up a day, and they readily agreed. We were the only people staying there so they gave us a choice of room. Having read about others getting a room without a window, we avoided that one and chose the room in the back because it had the biggest bed. It was fine for a night (and would have been fine for two) but it seemed dingy. The room could have used a deep cleaning and a new coat of paint. Upon reflection, the room in front would have had better air circulation and therefore less dampness, even if it had a smaller bed and overlooked the street with people talking and moving below. The bed was too soft for my taste, but coming off the overnight bus from Arugam Bay to Colombo the previous night, the bed didn't affect my sleep quality. In the morning, we had a phenomenal breakfast overlooking the street. We paid more for this hotel than we had at others in Sri Lanka - an all were about the same room quality - but the Bouganvila Guest compensated with its location in the heart of the Old Fort, breakfast that kept us going well into the afternoon, and the flexibility of the staff.
