Lonely Planet review
This former spice warehouse has been transformed into a fabulous small hotel. Although there are only four rooms, each exudes relaxed luxury, with furnishings that have a colonial feel, without the pomp. The bathrooms are large and nicely kitted out. Opt for the Library Room, which has a huge round window that bathes the interior in light.
Our independent authors have visited Fortaleza and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Galle.
