I arrived very early morning to Tropic Inn, where Lasitha (who proofed to be the best host you can whish for) took care of me. Offcourse it was not a problem to allready go in the room, and didnt have to pay an extra day (It was 6.30 in the morning and some hotels would charge an extra night.) I had to wait 10 minutes while my room was being cleaned, Lashita offered me free cold water and I could take a well deserved rest after 30 hours of traveling. The room was decent: A/C, ceiling fan, good beds, proper shower. In my case: good wifi in the room. And for Sri Lankan standards it is a fairly cheap place which is worth the money!
The location is somewhat far away from city centre. But in the case of Colombo that is good thing. There aren't that many things to see there, Tropic Inn will arrange a cheap ride with a metered tuktuk and you will be happy to return to laidback Mount Lavinia in the evening. Mount Lavinia is the probably the best place to be, when you stay in Colombo. The beach (less then 5 minutes walking from Tropic Inn) is relaxing. Many beach restaurants and bars to unwind (especially try BuBa on the southside of Hotel Lavinia).
I had a great stay and would recommend Tropic Inn.
