              Everything is just perfect in this small hotel. Rooms are very large, with pool just in front of your door. The breakfast is highly recommended! The staffs are very polite with ice-coconut water as the welcome drink.

He was thoughtful to have the room prepared with air con on so we could cool down from our walk. Our Sri Lankan breakfast was memorable with good service provided by Dilan.

              Just loved our stay there. The swimming pool came handy after going round the town in stifling heat. The kitxhen was an unexpected bonus : all meals we ended up having in the small front garden turned out to be succulent. Definitely great little address to pass on.

              We enjoyed our stay at Deco on 44. We were greeted with a refreshing cold towel & welcome drink. The room (Triton) was clean, comfortable & spacious, though with little natural light. Wifi signal & TV reception were a little hit & miss, but that was not a huge issue. The location couldn't have been better - convenient to eating venues, shops & for exploring the fort. All the staff were really lovely & helpful throughout our entire stay. A dip in the pool (with deliciously made Bloody Mary in hand) was a great treat after spending the day in the heat of the fort!

              Really enjoyed our time here! The staff were warm and friendly, attention to detail was superb and the decor really inspired you to think you were in the glamour of the 1930s! The location was also great-right in the heart of town. This was our end of holiday treat-the hotel is expensive, so come expecting that! Pool and pool side rooms in particular were lovely. The food was really nice but limited options for vegetarians/vegans…ensure you order Sri Lankan breakfast the evening before!

              Amazing room, the pool, fantastic breakfast

              We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Deco 44. From the moment we arrived, the whole experience was 5 star. We stayed in the Sun room which was amazing - lovely decor, nice balcony, big bathroom, comfortable bed, etc! The breakfast was of a very high quality and although we didn't have lunch or dinner at the hotel, we did see people dining at the restaurant and the food looked great. We used the pool on both days and had it to ourselves which was nice. The attentiveness of the staff and all the little touches during our stay (fruit served by the pool without having to ask, flower petals on the bed when we returned at night, chilled coconut water on arrival) left a really good impression. We would highly recommend staying here if you visit Galle.

My only small issue was with the room which had a glass door and no curtain (We stayed in Sun suite)thus at night, light was still streaming into the room until staff turned off the lights in the corridor.

              As I've said in previous reviews, Deco on 44 is my favourite hotel in Sri Lanka (or at least in Galle). The staff are brilliant and welcome my back warmly each time I stay there (at the moment 4 times and counting!) I really wouldn't consider staying anywhere else.

              The staff, the room, the jumbo prawns!

              This was my third stay at Deco on 44 and the staff remembered me the moment I walked up to the check in desk (even though my last visit was 12 months ago. Because I was a repeat guest, they had freed up a Junior Suite for me rather than the room I had booked, which gives you an indication of the thoughtfulness of the staff. Every night when they turn down the bed, there is a pattern of frangipani blossoms and a small gift left on the bed (a bookmark, a key ring) which again says a lot about the hotel. I would once again highly recommend Deco on 44 as a great place to stay in the heart of Galle Fort.

              Great location, friendly staff, excellent value for money

              Only opened 7 months, Deco on 44 is a small boutique hotel on Light House Street Galle Fort. The rooms are spacious and beautifully appointed, the staff caring and attentive and the breakfasts amazing - especially the fruit platter which is enormous! Only one block from the ramparts - the ideal place to watch Galle's famous sunsets and close to everything else in Galle Fort, Deco on 44 is highly recommended as a great place to stay if you are visiting Galle.
