          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!

          Muhsin Villa it's the perfect option to stay in Galle. Located just at the middle of the fort it's a great point to start exploring the city. I had a single room with bathroom and air conditioning, very clean and quite cool inside. The sri Lankan breakfast was huge and delicious! Highly recommended

          Location

          A good option for staying in Galle fort which is generally overpriced. The Muhsin Villa is a basic guest house right in the centre of the fort so ideal for visiting the area. No breakfast or TV but the rooms are spotlessly clean with ac and nets. Although the rooms are very small, there is a nice roof area with chairs and hammocks. Staff are friendly and helpful. Competitively priced for Galle fort.

          Lovely stay in Galle Fort”

          We stayed here for four nights and were very happy with the room. The location inside the Fort is perfect. Quiet and clean, but not very spacious, with a very comfortable bed, fan and ac. Perfect for our needs! There is a roof deck-sparse with a few hammocks and chairs-but it gets a breeze, so can be nice. The owners are pleasant and there if you need help, but leave you to yourself otherwise. We did not take advantage of meals here, but they will provide if you ask. They were kind to let us was some laundry and hang it out on the roof. Like many places we’ve visited in Asia, the bathroom drains can leave an unpleasant smell from time to time, but we simply kept the door shut and it wasn’t a problem. Late in the week, we needed transport to Colombo for only a day, and they arranged a very reasonable driver-super helpful! I would highly recommend this family run, heritage home for a lovely stay in Galle Fort.

          Location, Clean, Homely

          January is peak season, we tried to get room at some of the higher rated places, but were too late. Luckily we spotted Muhsin Villa which had zero reviews on Agoda. We are so glad we booked in. If you travel down to Fort Galle area you have to, have to, find a place INSIDE the fort for at least a couple of days. Muhsin Villa is perfectly located bang in the center of the fort. Looked after by a family, it offers only lodging (no breakfast) but there are plenty of places around where we'd much rather have had breakfast, even if it did. The hosts were friendly and accommodating of all our little needs. The AC room on level one is sized just right and is clean. The place is great value for money, for its perfect location alone. The only minor drawback is that it was bit noisy. But if you're not a very light sleeper, it won't bother you much. I'd definitely stay there again.

          Stayed for 1 night; location is fantastic, right in the heart of Galle fort. you-get-what-you-pay for kind of place; i was pleasantly surprised to have been upgraded and my room was spacious enough for one person. Owners (who stay in the same place) arranged an airport drop at rates which are easily the cheapest in the galle fort area (8500 incl. tolls). All in all, a no-frills guest-house with location being the key factor to choose this place.

You are right.There is and was a voltage drop off on light house street and we have already complained of it to the Electricity board as literally 2 of our air cons compressors malfunctioned due to the sudden voltage drop which happens. Extremely sorry of it and we are working on it with Lanka Electricity Board. Best Wishes from Muhsin Villa

          Galle fort ”

          Really nice hotel , quiet , clean and good location although every hotel in the fort is good location . My only complaint would be the thin mattress on the bed wasn't very comfortable but that's a minor thing . I would recommend this hotel .

          Convenient location”

          The place was clean and conveniently located in the centre of the fort. The rooms are air conditioned which is great, considering the humidity outside. There was a small lapse where my room did not have towels. Otherwise, my stay was enjoyable.

          Beautiful old building with simply appointed rooms. Ideally located in the centre of the fort, in easy walking distance of the ramparts, lighthouse, and restaurants. Super friendly staff and wonderful Sri Lankan breakfast.

          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.

          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. Best wishes

          Good place inside the Galle Fort”

          The room was clean with two pretty beds. The location is right in the middle of the Fort so it is easy to go around on foot and within walking distance from the train and bus station. Staff was nice upon check in but it was only an old woman there when I checked out the next morning. I would have wanted to ask info, good thing someone came and I asked her about the bus station and how to get to my next destination.
