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

I went to Sri Lanka to attend to some family business, having lived as I do in the UK for 26 years. 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

The staff, as everyone else has said, are sweethearts and are working very hard, this is a safe and friendly place to stay, and we came back for a second time. The hotel needs a bit of maintenance and upgrading, it's showing its age, but beds are comfortable, with bedside lights, food is ok, bathrooms are good - our last... More

The photos did not do this property justice, as I was expecting a much less inviting place. The entire establishment, especially the room, was clean. Make sure to get your a/c turned on, as the humidity is unbearable. Breakfast was good, and some items can be made to order. The beach is very close. If you want to go into... More
