Experienced a black out in the middle of the night
Experienced a black out in the middle of the night. The staffs were not trained to deal with the situation, I had to call the front desk a couple of times as the room was stuffy and hot. Eventually, I opened all the windows and the door leading to the balcony, which invited additional security risks. The constant howling of the wind and waves made it an unbearable night, loosely held pipes and unsecured doors added to the orchestra of polluting noises.

Amazing location & Staff
Sent 2 nights here with my family and had a fantastic time! The location is amazing inside the fort with everything within walking distance! The building is a 300 year old beautiful Dutch house! The staff are very accommodating too & got to have breakfast on our balcony each morning overlooking the ocean
Garth, gb2 night family trip
Very good 8.0
Difficult to review this really unusual hotel. Great location, lovely feel. Particularly liked the courtyard and roof terrace. Our room was small and without a window, which isn't great for me. Storage was poor,we were really living out of the suitcases. Bathroom privacy may be an issue - as only a partition glass screen between bedroom and bathroom (in our room, don't know about other rooms). We stayed for three nights which is probably the most one would wish to do. Breakfast good, but quantities for us too large. We scaled down for second morning, but witnessed a lot of wasted food on places which is a pity in this essential poor country. I would recommend.

Incredible boutique comfort in the heart of Galle
The Bartizan is without a doubt one of the best hotels there is. Literally everything was exception - spacious room and terrace design, beautiful decor, kind and super attentive staff, excellent breakfasts, and little details like afternoon tea. As someone who travels frequently for work (and lives out of hotels), I was blown away by how phenomenal the Bartizan is and would love to make it my home away from home. It’s a must in Galle.

We loved our room. Beautiful Hotel and in a perfect location is you want to stay and see the Galle Fort Area. Would stay here again and would request the same room. We had a private roof top balcony and it was perfect.
