We arrived exhausted from a long flight and Tropic Inn welcomed us warmly. We expected to have a room for four people as that was what we booked, but instead were given two doubles, which was slightly annoying, but the rooms were very comfortable and had clean bathrooms and good ceiling fans!
The location was amazing for what we wanted... really close to the railway station leading into colombo central and a few paces from the gorgeous yellow sands of mount Lavinia beach!
Breakfast was nice too.

Room Tip: Make sure you email and reserve the exact room you if you book on hostelworld

We stayed in a 3 person room with our friend. The staff is very friendly, like everyone in Sri Lanka. The room was fine. Nothing super great or super bad so that's why I say totally adequate. The location was wonderful since we could walk to the beach and nearby restaurants. They also set up a driver for us to travel around the hill country so that was super helpful! We enjoyed ourselves.

Worst part is that the electricity just goes off every now and then. Plus they don't even have a back up generator. Not to mention a lot of mosquitoes. No toiletries. Towels stink. Slow wifi. Not many options in the in room dining menu. I ain't coming back !!!

Rooms large and spotlessly clean with TV, fridge and wardrobe. Loads of hot water. Definitely more than basic. Manager and staff very friendly and helpful.

Buffet breakfast very good and includes fresh fruit and both western and Sri Lankan dishes.

The quiet leafy suburb Mount Lavinia is a good place to stay away from noise and pollution of central Colombo. Plenty of restaurants 5 mins walk on the beach.

Would be difficult to get better value in Colombo area.

Stayed there for more than a week. Had a wonderful time. The rooms and service were very good. The breakfast in the mornings and the occasional meal i had there were also very nice. Great value for money. The location of the hotel is also convenient. Beach as well as Galle Road are just minutes away and you can easily get transport to go to main town. Lasith and the old lady Ms Perrera were ever smiling and very helpful.

I stayed here for three nights on my own. I paid the cheap price for a shared dorm but ended up having a room to myself as it wasn't peak tourist time. Price was very good and includes a nice breakfast including fresh fruit and tea. All staff were very helpful and friendly which was a main positive of the place. Rooms were simple and not the cleanest but included towels. I booked the airport transfer from here which was a very efficient service, despite me having to change plans last minute because of a flight change.
The only main negative was that I was asked to change rooms on the second night. It didn't bother me as I didn't have a lot of stuff but might have bothered others.
