Good and friendly staff. No WIFI tho. Hotel need some upgrades. Small hotel. Close to beach and very convenient. Reception lady is not that friendly. Seems like she is the owner of the hotel bit rude. Otherwise a nice place to stay. There is no parking.

Close to beach but the wifi in hotel was really marginal. Must go down to lobby and still it isn't easy. Rooms big enough for two w luggage but must keep bathroom door closed. Bath is open to outside and mosquitos. Hallways r open air too. So lobby restaurant and bedrooms have AC, otherwise the rest is hot and humid... More

Good room, kingsize bed, fine working a/c. We slept here very well. Every morning we received a nice breakfast buffet. Old hotel, but very clean. The staff is very courteous and helpful.. Walking distance to the beach.

As a policy for last 33 yrs we do not give "Day Rooms" for local couples for 2 - 4 hours. We do not want to invite trouble to our hotel. I hope you understand what we mean. We do have locals staying with us and they stay 2 nights upto one month. We don't have any problem with that. More

The hotel is just 2 mins away from the beach and also 5 mins walk for the main street. Rooms are clean and basic but comfortable and staff are friendly and helpful. Try to get rooms that dont face the road if you are a light sleeper. As i have to leave for diving by 715am every morning, on the... More

There was a lot of issues with hot water for the shower during our stay. The shower needs some renovation issue water draining and mould. Lots of stains in the ceiling. The door... More

The staff at Tropic Inn were really nice, they were very well informed about the sights of Colombo and were always willing to help. The rooms were clean and were quite spacious. I had booked a double room and a triple room. Both rooms were well kept. My friends staying in the double room found that the sheets were not... More

The staff are really friendly and willing to help in anyway possible. They let us check in an hour earlier than we had anticipated. When we first got there our sheets were dirty, this might have been because we got there early and they rushed to check us in. Would have been happy to wait to have clean sheets. Whenever... More

The room facilities and service were excellent enough for a such mid range hotel. Also should mentioned about Mr. Lasitha who was very helpful for us. We have enjoyed a lovely breakfast too. Location was very much convenient to access city and beach.
