The swimming pool. The size of the room. The comfort. The location. The friendliness and helpfulness of the manager and staff. The TUNA CHEEKS on the menu - delicious. Never had them before. All the other food we had was very good too.
Was more expensive than Galle Face in Colombo or Leela Palace in Chennai
Spacious rooms, attention to detail. Food was delicious, pool area relaxing. Staff were marvellous. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Everything was great. Food fresh and interesting menu Walking out into swimming pool in the morning. Art Deco furniture
Only thing was no twin beds so one of us had a smaller bed. However it was comfortable. Suggest they invest in two large singles that go to a kingsize as more people re travelling as friends together.
Location was very good as it was right at the center of Galle old fort. The staff were very helpful and kind, as they have prepared us a lovely bed making upon our check-in. Your room will be cleaned twice a day, just like a five star hotel.
We do not have any complaints with the hotel itself, but when we were walking around the city, a man who named Senil the chef of this hotel (somehow he knew that we stayed at Deco n 44, but we were unsure if he really worked for the hotel), talked to us and brought us to "government shop" where they sold jems and souvenirs overpriced. We did not buy anything, but we felt very uncomfortabl and difficult to leave the place. In addition, this shop was located outside the fort, and took us time to get back to the hotel.
Pool, cleanliness, rooms
Next door is a building site so was noisy at times
Lovely staff and rooms
Perfectly located Amazing staff Excellent Room
Decco on 44 is a fabulous boutique hotel inside the fort in Galle, so is very well located -being within easy walking distance of the bastions, cafés, restaurants and places of interest. The building itself is a beautiful old mansion carefully and well restored with excellent fittings and well proportioned rooms. The housekeepers do an excellent job in keeping a high standard in the rooms and have a lovely eye for detail especially in the turndowns. All staff are proud of their workplace and it shows in their attitude to the guests. Always pleasant and with personable professional service our 4 day stay here was most enjoyable. Food was excellent and sitting on the restaurant verandah watching the world go by was one of our daily highlights.
Staff was extremely friendly and helpful! Housekeeping made wonderful bed arrangements. Really appreciated the fabulous service.
Nice staff and very considerate.
Food/drink in the hotel is much more expensive compared to restaurants around.
The staff were so friendly, even giving the children little gifts, the room was beautiful with brilliant aircon. The food was some of the best we've had in Sri Lanka. Great pool area and perfect location overall!
Fabulous Art Deco setting with large comfortable rooms where everything is thought of and works well. The pool was very welcome as it gets pretty hot in Galle Fort. Don't be put off by the slightly strange breakfast menu - just ask for whatever combination you want and it will be beautifully prepared.
If you eat in the restaurant, be prepared for serenading! Not to our taste as it was quite intrusive.
In the heart of Galle Fort in a very attractive Dutch building. Good, sizeable room close to a very good swimming pool with very limited use being made of it. Very decent breakfast on the terrace. Close to top restaurants in the Amangalla and Galle Fort Hotels.
Nothing to report.
I am very fond of Art Deco and I loved the elegance of that place. The house was brilliantly refurbished and is beautifully stylish.
Very good location in fort, beautiful balcony, facilited with swimming pool. Kind of luxury place and super high quality of service. I love to stay here longer if it is cheaper.
The food was also excellent. And thanks for the upgrade.
Staff attentive, breakfast the best we have had to date, lovely pool. Would def recommend and stay again. Overal a great experience.
Can't fault anything.
This is a real gem in Galle Fort. The hotel has only 7 rooms so the personal is really taking good care of you. The pool is a plus as one cannot really swim around the Fort. We had the Sun suite (I think it is the best in the hotel) big room, big bathroom and big terrasse! The hotel is well named. Everything almost is Art Deco. Definitely the place to be in Galle Fort and really good value for money if you compare with the prices in the Fort
The location, the very friendly helpful staff. The renovation is excellent and perfect for Fort Galle. The breakfast was very very good!
For the price, the rooms need large bath towels and bathmats. Needs more touches of luxury in the rooms including a choice of pillows
Above all the staff, who were charming and helpful at all times, especially the manager Dilshan. This hotel is a real gem - the thirties art deco and traditional colonial styles work well together to provide a stylish relaxing ambience. The breakfast and restaurant food are excellent.
Liked the layout of the room and the fact it opened on to the pool
The staff were great
Bedrooms were clean, spacious and well air conditioned. The staff were very polite and helpful. My children loved the pool even though it is only small and generally had it to themselves!
Unfortunately one day the pool was out of use until late afternoon as the pH was too high which was disappointing.
Excellent, excellent location: in the middle of the fort surrounded by sights, small shops and cafes and restaurants. Nice building, stylish design. Excellent staff; We asked for a change of sheets late at night as they had some stains on them (probably due to washing) and the staff attended us immediately, apologies were made and a free lunch was offered as a compensation.
Pricy, although we think it was worth it.
