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.

Stayed here for the Galle Test Match - couldn’t have wished for a better location and quality of boutique hotel.

Pleasant Stay
This boutique hotel is situated right in the centre of Galle- with the rooftop area overlooking the fort and walking distance to plenty of restaurants, gelato and massage places. The hotel is a short drive from Unawatuna- a beach town with a calm sea. We stayed here for two nights and had a packed breakfast (sandwich and fruit) one morning and the usual breakfast on our second day- not bad- the usual eggs, pancakes, tea/ coffee, fruit. The rooms are a reasonable size, but dark due to 'the bartizan' nature of the hotel - shutters. We found it perfect for what we needed and the wifi is fast. The roof area is really nice for afternoon tea/ reading (and they offer free tea and cake between 3-5pm). Overall we were really happy with our stay. Only small niggle was there are no shower facilities after check out (11am which they kindly extended until 12pm) which meant we couldn't do much on our last day and were just hanging about the area. Also we were told they were full so couldn't offer another room to shower (which we would have gladly paid to use), but I later found out there was actually a room available.

Superlative Fort boutique hotel
having stayed in the Fort before i knew what I wanted in my hotel and the Bartizan ticked all the boxes and more. Location was superb, right by the ramparts and directly off strategic pedlar st. Bartizan is a small boutique hotel with all the requisite facilities and amenities. rooms are well appointed and equipped, nice touches like designer toileteries. cosy and intimate rooftop lounge area for amazing sunsets over the indian ocean. Service was discreet and attentive. good bespoke breakfast served in the quaint and cool courtyard or outside your room. Special credit goes to Andrew, the GM, who is extremely personable, approachable, informative, warm and down to earth. overall one of the best price-value-quality boutique options in the Fort. would certainly return and make this my base

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.

Nice boutique hotel
Walkable distance to the beach and attractions. Clean and cozy hotel. Only thing bothers us is the placement of the basin within the room instead of the bathroom. Overall great experience staying here.
