There are quite a few hotels inside the Fort in Galle, some excellent and many mediocre. Deco on 44 is a great place. They have a few suites named after the bastions on the fort. The staff is really great and friendly and can help you with a lot of tips on sightseeing. They even gave us bicycles to use for the day, granted they were not in the best of conditions, they worked for us. The rooms are neat and clean. The whole establishment is done up in art deco style. They only have a few rooms, so book in advance. we were able to get the room just for a day as the next day they were fully booked. It is perhaps a tad bit more expensive than many of the others around.
