Perfect service, good food, wonderful atmosphere. Unlike many grand hotels, The Strand has not been over-restored in the attempt to render it *luxe*. The lobby is good place to hang out; the cafe very relaxing, with a broad menu and a great breakfast. Will definitely come back.

I consider this hotel the best in Rangoon (now Yangon) due to its beauty, ambience and colonial charm, like Raffles. Although it has has usual Myanmar quirks like slow service,everyone smiles and is pleasant and the food is tasty. Rooms were lovely, and you feel like you're in colonial days.

If you can afford it, you cannot come to Rangoon and not stay at the Strand. 5 star luxury meets old-world colonial charm. The Strand Hotel reminds me of the Raffles, but prices at 1/5th the cost. Have high tea in the afternoon in the cafe, or drinks at the old-world bar.

I've been lucky enough to stay here on three occasions. The staff are friendly and helpful and the hotel has a simple elegance. But it still suffers from some Myanmar quirks, like very slow service at the cafe. The food is tasty though and the massage is one of the best I've had in Myanmar. If you keep your expectations...

We spent two nights at The Strand before touring through Myanmar. Apparantly this is the best hotel in Yangon that's why we chose it. It is good but not great, the building is old, the rooms are old, the furniture is old and so is the entire infrastructure, but radiates a warm atmosphere and sets you back into those days,... More

a stunningly restored taste of colonial rangoon, the strand offers old world charm *and* world-class service. we had read complaints that the operation did not live up to the potential and history of the property, that rooms were tired, that staff were so-so, etc. we found none of this to be true: the strand is surely on the list of...

If you want to travel back to the era of British empire and the days of Somerset Maugham, Rudyard Kipling, et al, this is your place. High ceilings, dark woodwork, large capacious rooms, floor butlers, minimal number of guests, all harking back to another time. Yes there is air conditioning and internet, but you can close your eyes and visualize... More

Amazing elegant hotel. Restaurant with an excellent menu and very attentive staff. Breakfast is very extensive but the sausages are average. The Butlers supply coffee, tea and hot chocolate on demand and they look after your key when you're not in your room. The rooms are huge, have wifi and a nice sofa. Bathrooms have everything you'd ever need. Enjoy!!

This icon stands in the perfect stately position in the middle of Yangon, holding the place it always has by the river and next to what is now the Australian embassy. For me it is the perfect combination of history, preserved character, tasteful renovations and quality service. Sitting on the wicker chairs in the lobby and then ascending the grand... More

We tried The Strand Hotel at the beginning and at the end of our stay in Myanmar and loved it. It's interior is very well maintained and carries a great piece of history with it. You feel royal at that luxury hotel! The staff is very friendly and perfectly trained, be it the concierges, the front desk assistance, the restaurant... More
