This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Tropic Inn is a very nice place to stay in Colombo. It is easy to arrive by public bus from the Central Station but you can also go walking to the Fort (even if it is not very close). We stop here just for one night (Colombo isn't a very touristic town) and the place was quite, clean and perfect to rest. The people is friendly and very helpful, the facilities are beautiful and nice but the best thing is the great breakfast!!!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Nice and clean and of new appearance. Room was fine, triple although just two of us. Bathroom a bit small but easily adequate. The lads were friendly and willing and provided a good breakfast each morning.
Just off Galle Rd so loads of transport options and very clos to Majestic City for the shoppers.
Enjoyed our stay and would reccomend to anyone for a budget stay. It aint the Ritz, but neither are the prices.
Give it a try.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

We stayed here at the beginning and end of our 4 weeks' travel in Sri Lanka in November. The location is great: once you've worked out the one way system on the 2 nearby main roads it's really easy to catch a bus (100 or 101!) into the city centre or back - very cheap. We also discovered that the sea is very close by and Majestic City is just a short stroll away. The place is kept very clean and the service is very attentive though I don't think our rooms were cleaned every day. We were offered a glass of fresh fruit juice on arrival and the breakfasts are great. Mohammed wil order a take-away meal for guests' lunch or dinner and will provide tea on request. He'll also arrange for clothes to be laundered and for transport to the airport - and he wrote down the name and address of the hotel in Sinhalese for us so we could show it to tuk-tuk drivers - it worked a treat. I agree the best rooms are upstairs as downstairs is open plan and can get noisy. There's space to sit upstairs and watch TV or take advantage of the free wifi to catchup with emails. We'd certainly stay here again if we ever return to Colombo: compared to other places we stayed on our travels it represents really good value for money.

This is a hostel with good value. We had difficulty in finding cheap hostel with good location in Colombo but this apparently is one of the best options. Wifi, hot water, A/C all included and functioned well. The staff are very nice. We spent 2 nights in the private room of it. We were too tired one night and decided to order takeaway suggested by the hostel. The spicy chickenwings were surprisingly awesome!!

A quaint little hostel tucked in the city stayed here. A welcome drink and bottle of water was provided by the polite staff member. A clean and newly decorated building with secure entrance. My bedroom was clean and basic. Bathroom- better than expected with good quality fixings and included towel/ soap. The room was a little warm and seemed to retain the heat throughout the night though I didn't opt for the a/c and the good ceiling fan sufficied. The free FAST WIRELESS INTERNET was very improtant to me. The breakfast was reasonable and the staff friendly and attentive. I will definetely stay again if I'm in town!
