we booked deco on 44 based on the excellent reviews on tripadvisor, and it did not disappoint. this boutique hotel has class and character throughout with high ceilings, tasteful decor with a touch of decadence. the rooms are spacious and have everything you can need (including A/C, wifi, safe, tea/coffee, minibar, toiletries), the bathroom was particularly classy. our room (aurora) was straight off the beautiful pool area, lovely for an early morning dip to the sound of the birdsong. the food was as good as in any london restaurant. breakfast, served on the picturesque verandah, was top quality: fresh coffee, fruit and juice, bread selection and eggs cooked to order. the staff were extremely helpful and service minded, advising us with travel arrangements and ensuring we had a take away breakfast for our early start the next morning. this peaceful hotel is located in the heart of galle fort area, perfect for exploring the fort and for walks around the ramparts to watch the sunset. highly recommended.
