It was only a short stay here. Walkable to Mt Lavinia beaches, cafes, shops, art and jewellery shops, and a diverse range of restaurants. Mt Lavinia and Delawalia are lovely, leafy areas to explore on foot too. Breakfast was well-catered for and the place seems spacious and family-friendly, though I found my room to be very small. Located quite far... More

Have stayed here several times. Clean, friendly,close to beach and Mount Lavinia Hotel. Walking distance to Galle Road and plenty of tuk-tuks to take you around. Hotel has meals and laundry service available. They are happy to help you arrange trips to other parts of the country. Airport pickups available.

There is really nothing to say about Tropic Inn that isn't positive. It was everything we needed for our short stay in the capital before we moved on to Kandy. They were very accommodating, as we landed in Colombo at 5:00am, but graciously only charged us for one night even though we checked in at around 6:30am. Our room was... More
