Charming property in good location.

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 05 May 2024
We stayed three nights here whilst touring. The property is boutique with some charm and very well located in the old town. We were kindly upgraded to balcony room with seaview which was appreciated. Room was quirky, huge and well equipped, only thing missing was a tv but that did not trouble us. Staff were friendly and helpful and it was nice to be offered breakfast on our balcony. I even managed a couple of swims on little beach opposite the hotel.
Only downside was that the property is popular for wedding/fashion photoshoots in the courtyard (where guests eat) and turret beside our room, and there were several such over our stay which we found intrusive. I was told this started over covid restrictions to bring in cash, which is understandable, but then continued. Seems like owners are selling the same small facilities twice.

We had a lovely stay at the Bartizan, the staff were so helpful and always there to give recommendations, the room had everything you needed and a nice terrace for having breakfast. The hotel is close to lots of restaurants and shops in galle and we would definitely recommend it!

Amazing property and the room was huge, one of our favourites from the trip. It is on a busy street though with lots of noise all night, but once asleep it didn't effect us too much. The breakfast was INCREDIBLE had it out on the balcony which was perfect

Great place to stay. Excellent location, helpful staff, comfortable. Very accomodating about late check out. Breakfast was amazing (very generous and nice variety).

Room tip: Just over the old wall is a place to swim and cool off

We had a wonderful night at the Bartizan.

The staff were absolutely fantastic and so accommodating.
The room was amazing, the bed was so comfy and the breakfast was delicious.

After walking all around Fort Galle we couldn't have gotten a better location.
We'd definitely stay again.

A lovely boutique hotel, great location with easy access to the ramparts.
Staff were incredibly helpful and Carl especially went out of his way to make us feel comfortable and at home. Large room with very comfortable bed. Lighting was a little too dim for our needs. I would be glad to recommend the Bartizan to friends. Thank you to all staff for making us feel at home.
