The rooms are always so clean and the bathrooms are modern and clean as well. Breakfast is amazing, wide variety of western and Sri Lankan dishes.

The rooms and the bathroom are very clean. Hot water. Free wi fi - good working! Lovely, very helpful and very friendly staff. Mr. Lasitha - the main man from the... More

I stayed at Tropic Inn for nearly a month for work purposes. The staff succeeded in making it a home away from home and they were very accommodating in maintaining the the same room whenever I had visits to make outside Colombo for a few days. Also, inet is free! I would recommend it to my colleagues and friends as... More

I stayed at Tropic Inn for 3 nights at the end of March in the dormitory. Very clean place to stay. Lovely and very friendly staff. The main guy is super friendly. Given a complimentary glass of chilled fresh juice on arrival and a cool bottle of water. Understandably, the buffet breakfast is not included in the price of a... More

We had a very big room for three people (4 very confortable beds) The staff was really nice and always worrying for your confort All the hotel was very clean, wifi... More

We stayed 2 nights at the Tropic Inn and are very happy we picked Mt Lavinia to stay in over Columbo (what a DUMP), however Mt Lavinia is just a bit better. As far as the hotel it is in a decent location just a few blocks from the very dirty beach and handful of weary restaurants. The staff is... More

The hostel is very clean and 3 beds to a room which isn't over bearing. When it is not pack they will try to give you your own room at the shared room price. The fan is enough air in Jan and Feb. You may want to get an ac room during the hotter more humid months. Staff very friendly... More

It was a short stay of only 5 days (don't recommend such a quick turnaround as the jet lag especially after return is unbearable). I chose the Tropic Inn because I have stayed before at their other site... More
