The major plus is that the guest house is located in the centre of old Galle and is the cheapest option available within the old walled city. Normally I'd choos3 further away cheaper options but I had 2 nights here... half a day for Galle and half a day Unawatuna beach. If they called the place Leynbaan Rooms it'd be...

We booked one night in this «villa» and I would never book it again. We paid for a room with balcony and got a room next to a shared balcony. The room was very small and the washroom smelled. At our arrival they offered free tea for the next morning but nobody was between 8 and 9 at the reception....

We stayed for a night @ Leynbaan Villa which is situated less than 100 meters away from Galle Fort. Situated on Leyn Baan Street, the location is good enough for someone who'd like to spend their day strolling around the old dutch settlements. Its a family run place and we were well looked after by the staff . The room...

I stayed here for two nights as a solo female budget traveller and it was the nicest place I've stayed in Sri Lanka so far. It's family run and the owners are kind, helpful and friendly. I felt really safe and I was very well looked after, offered fresh cinnamon tea and help with train times. The whole place felt...

Unexpected stay at this hotel since we were double booked elsewhere. We were not expecting to stay behind a fish spa and jewellery shop but we were pleasantly surprised and found this quite quaint! Staff were lovely and helped us with our air-con and shower problems (our own stupidity...) without any bother, and got up to let us in when...

Guesthouse in the heart of Galle Fort, so the location is great! It's cheap and it has all the basics but our room didn't have any window! The staff is nice but not very helpful. We asked a few questions like where to go swimming or where to rent a bike. They didn't know and didn't care. So if you...

Very nice place and great people. Clean room, nice bathroom and a great balcony in a quiet area right in the fort district. And all this for a real fair price (about $15). I will definitely talk about it and strongly recommend it.

The Villa is actually at the top of a Jewelries store, we called ahead and made a booking with Shafa. He is very friendly and helpful. We got a room upstairs at the front. The room has a double bed with mosquito net and an attached toilet with hot water. The room and toilet is very tight, you can only...

We arrived after a full day of traveling, our room was nice and quiet with a big bed and place to store close. The price was very reasonable for Galle. There is an upstairs terrace over looking the street where you can sit and relax. The people running the jewelry store downstairs were very nice and helpful.
