I have stayed here several time but not for about 18 months. The rooms have recently been renovated and they have flat screen TV. The rooms are very good but none of them have a view. The public beach is 200 metres away and there are plenty of restaurants on the beach. I didn't eat in the evening and the...

Though only a basic Hotel, the staff were very courteous and helpful. The breakfast was a help yourself setup. Rooms were very clean and tidy with air-con. If your on a budget, its worth a stay or two.

The guesthouse is located near the beach of Colombo. The city center is easy to reach by the train (the station is near by). Rooms are clean. The breakfast is a feast, with a lot of Sri Lankan specialties!

You would think it would be pretty safe booking a room here on booking.com. As you enter a new country write down the name of this hotel on your immigration form and pay for a taxi directly to the hotel. Think again, On our arrival we were told the hotel was over booked with a group and we couldn't stay...

A friendly budget hotel, where nothing is too much trouble for the staff. Clean comfortable rooms and a good buffet breakfast, which was a mixture of Sri Lankan and western foods. A tuk tuk to Colombo station was 300SLR and a taxi 750 SLR, alternatively the Mount Lavinia train station is about a 15 min walk away. The cost of...

Nice clean quiet hotel two minutes away from the beach. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Definitely recommend staying here over chaotic colombo if you're doing a quick stop over before travelling arkund . Tuktuk to colomvo was about 500 rupre so pretty easy to get in and out.

Tropic inn is a pleasant and friendly place to stay after a long flight to Colombo from Europe. The place looks very outdated but the friendliness of the staff compensates this completely. The bed was very comfortable and the shower worked well. The window was blocked with wooden shelfs and we were wondering where to go to in case of...
