It was a surprise to find such a warm and elegant hotel. I liked his touch to be at home. The rooms are very clean, spacious and with all the proper details of a boutique hotel: sandals, robe for bath, good shower pressure, ecc. Breakfast is a la cart, no buffet but I recommend to ask for the Sri Lankan... More

This is without any doubts my first pick in Colombo. I only stayed at Cinnamon Grand (see my other recent review) the night before because I need a comparison for Business Purposes. Truth be told, CG has much better food selections, and much greater choices for your meetings. Zylan on the other hand, only has two dining facilities (with just... More

We stayed here after taking the train from Kandy and before leaving the following morning for Galle. Super easy check-in and check-out process and helpful and friendly front desk staff. The space is great - very open and airy, quite comfortable. The beds were the plushest we slept on in Sri Lanka, and the room design -- cool, modern, but... More

My wife and I had a one night stay here on a transit stop. We were exhausted when we arrived in the morning. The staff were lovely and made up our room and gave us an early check in. We were able to get some sleep during the day. However due to our jet lag and the constant barking of... More

We stayed here on our last night in Sri Lanka after traveling around for 2 weeks. It was a lovely piece of luxury and a treat for our last night. The hotel is beautifully designed and has a unique feel to it. The staff were great, and arranged for our transfer to the airport the next day and any other... More

Awesome! Very simple, nice Asian design (in the rooms and in the rest of the hotel), great staff (they helped us with everything we asked like translation with our driver, ordering a taxi in a very professional way). It is a calm place in a hectic city. We were afraid of the difference between Colombo (noisy) and the rest of... More

I would say it’s a gorgeous place. The decoration is simple and cozy; it’s a mixture of Chinese and Western style. Staffs there are very friendly and willing to help. Food is delicious. Everything is clean and tidy. It is nice sitting at the roof beside the swimming pool and look into the Colombo sky with soft wind. Thank you... More

I stayed in Zylan for my first days in Colombo whilst working at the nearby National Hospital. Helen and all the staff are very accommodating, and provide a very personal service. Zylan is a warm and peaceful oasis in the sheltered Rosmead place, away from much of Colombo's hustle and bustle. I will certainly be booking in for future visits.

Our friends recommended this place to us. We weren't disappointed. Lovely rooms, helpful staff, and great location for wandering around Columbo. Top tip - have the Sri Lankan curry breakfast BUT remember to order it in advance! Otherwise the croissant, fruit and omelette were delicious.
