    Great location in the centre of the fort. Really enjoyed the sri Lankan breakfast and could not eat it all due to the quantity. Our Hostess spoke English and was very helpful and hospitable. Rooms was not overly big, but big enough, it is after all just somewhere to sleep. Highly recommended

    Great, central budget hotel”

    You really can't get a better location than Muhsin Villa. Galle Fort has extremely limited hotel options -- if you're looking for a budget accommodation, Muhsin Villa is far & away the best deal. The rooms are basic but functional, and the roof is a great relaxing spot. Really friendly owners who answered all my questions and helped when necessary. Highly recommend Muhsin Villa for a visit to Galle!

    disappointment ”

    We are being offered by the owner to ‘upgrade’ our room during check in. In fact, the owner brought us to another of her property, which the room seems much smaller and was quite noisy during the sleep as the soundproof isn’t quite good. Personally felt that the owner is not sincere if the property is full, it shouldn’t allowed the customer to book and then transfer to alternate property.

    Reviewed December 31, 2018

    Thank you for the review left. Just to explain you the situation a bit.Due to the extreme demand Muhsin Villa has during the peak time of the year we lease out rooms at times.But please do note that when we do it we will be very careful of the quality and the ratings on the property which has to be the same as our or higher. I can understand the disappointment of the Guest as some Guests envy to stay with us as we have managed to maintain our standards of Customer Service. The room size infact is bigger than ours and the they were upgraded to a Double from a Twin along with it. We, Muhsin Villa is a Guest house and not being a hotel gives us the chance to do this as we do not possess immense luxury in our properties but comfortable facilities.So we choose properties which possess the matching attributes only. Saying that I would like to apologize if the stay was not satisfactory where we could investigate where any may have gone wrong. Regards

    Comfortable homestay”

    we love the hotel's location since its within the fort and everything is easily accessible. unfortunately, we believe that the room lacks some basic amenities,which we didnt expect given the price we paid.the toilet didnt have exhaust and its door lock is broken. theres also a cockroach.

    Reviewed April 13, 2018

    Thank you for leaving your thoughts and is great to see that you have enjoyed your stay with us. Please note that the Fort is relatively an expensive area and standards are higher than the other parts of the country.This is true that some people find this area extremely expensive (Many have done their research before arriving ) as the location makes more for the price.All our toilets have good ventilation but true there is no exhaust. At-last I am so sorry if you had any Cockroaches as due to the rainy weather we had in the past 2 weeks probably they got enticed by saying that please be aware that we do disinfect the rooms routinely as tropical countries with high humidity as such can have these issues.I will definitely look in to the door lock if any issues persists.

Do accept our sincere apologies as you mentioned we had a funeral in the house and we were all over and sometimes may not have been attentive as we usually do due to this unexpected.Cleaning is usually all up to the standards which has been a highlight of our Guesthouse by others though the given days along with the heavy rain/Visitors some areas may have gone let down.

    Thank you for staying with us at Muhsin Villa. Please note that as a policy we will only allow the checked in guests upstairs passing through the lobby.This is for your own safety as we dont know who may sneak in.There are guests in the other rooms as well, so we must maintain a mutual respect with the unchecked visitors hanging around the rooms where it may cause inconvenience for everyone. Apart from that the prime reason is some bad experiences we have had in the past.Where even the friend of the guest has created issues such as theft in latter.So please comprehend that this is for your own protection. If you do want to talk to any one there are plenty of sitting areas on the ground floor.You can freely entertain them there. Trust you had a safe flight back.
