Best Western Elyon Colombo

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 July 2014

The hotel staff are well informed in order to answer a variety of questions upon request and are very helpful and prompt. Cocktails at the bar could be better along with a larger range to select from. Room are adequate with everything you need. Good location for visitors and the dinner menu has a good selection with well cooked meats. All in, it is everything you require for a stay in Sri Lanka when you have business in the country, as it does not have a pool or many recreational facilities.

Located in the vibrant city of Colombo, Best Western Elyon Colombo is the ideal city hotel. A perfect blend of comfort, modern elegance and exceptional standards of service make this hotel a great place to stay at. 



My husband and I enjoyed a tasty and wholesome buffet dinner in the evening and the whizzing cars and lights that passed us by at the restaurant made us feel like we were in the heart of the city. The next day at breakfast, the chef's Sri Lankan style omelet, gave us a spicy start to our day. The spread on offer included both western dishes and a few traditional dishes which added variety to our meals. Overall, everything was very tasty and the restaurant staff were very helpful.



In the evening we relaxed at the rooftop bar, it offers probably one of the best views available in Colombo and has a wonderful ambiance. Something I really loved about the hotel is that we were able to relax and unwind at the bar, whilst taking in Colombo's beautifully lit buildings against a night sky. We were lucky as during our visit we were able to watch fireworks from the rooftop and observe a small traditional perehara (a colorful religious pageant including fire dancers and people doing different performances). I must also add that this bar has a lovely selection of wines and cocktails, their mojito is one of the best I've ever had.

Our room was extremely comfortable, clean and cosy and our entire experience at the hotel was very pleasant and memorable.

We were really impressed with the friendly and helpful staff who went out of their way to make sure we were happy. If you're looking for a great city hotel that is affordable and completely dedicated to offering high standards of service, I highly recommend staying at Best Western Elyon Colombo.

The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, making absolutely certain that my stay was an unforgettable experience...
The rooms were phenomenal!! The attention to detail in every aspect left me wanting nothing! They were spacious and very thoughtfully laid out. Very comfy beds and brilliant sound insulation made me forget I was in the middle of a bustling city center.
The rooftop bar has a stunning view of the city, perfect place to entertain guests. The restaurant served up some delicious meals, the time and care taken for preparation was evident.
The location is perfectly set, within easy reach to all parts of Colombo.

Thank you Team Best Western Elyon for a splendid stay. Will most certainly be staying with you in the future.

Rooms where what you can expect for the price except that it is evident that the hotel was built very recently. Biggest plus was the very friendly and helpfull manager. A la carte menu and breakfast was good but without a very bog selection.

My Self and my sister stayed one night at BEST WESTERN Elyon Colombo, the staff were really friendly and very professional in their service, the place made us feel like home but the treatment was pretty Royal,

Food was excellent and had quite a good choice of it too,

The rooms were really comfortable, clean and cozy.

Being situated in the heart of Colombo it gives you an excellent view of the city at night but not disturbing you by the surrounding traffic,
We really enjoyed our stay at Elyon and would recommend it to anyone on a business visit or if you want to tour the city of Colombo.

Room Tip: Rooms on the higher levels have an amazing view of the city

Stayed a night at the hotel and highly recommend it. The roof top bar is a great place to relax and hangout after a a busy day of work. The service was really good and so was the food. I highly recommend this to those travelling to Colombo on a business trip or on medical trip - it's very close to a number of leading hospitals.
