We were lucky to stay in this beautiful hotel in a superb setting for the first days we spent in Myanmar and the night before we left the country. The rooms are very comfortable (bedside lights in our first room didn't allow for reading in bed because of dark lampshades and low wattage, the second room had excellent bedside lights).... More

This hotel is a lovely oasis in Yangon. The rooms are large and extremely comfortable with wonderful beds and beautiful teak floors. It is one of those hotels where you think of something you need and there it is, immediately to hand. The breakfast is one of the best I have had anywhere and the pool is clean and a... More

There is a small swimming pool but during rainy season was perfectly enough. Amazing breakfast with a delicious choice of asian and particularly burmese food. I loved the veranda! and the nice cocktails!

Let me begin by saying this is a lovely colonial style hotel. The rooms are lovely ( large stone spa baths, couches etc) and the grounds immaculate with an amazing pool. For a honeymoon or other holiday experience this is hard to beat. The staff are very accommodating - they go the extra mile to help you out. The downsides... More

OK. I couldn't stay here but so badly wanted to. They are fully booked, but ate here and the food is excellent, the service great and the property is the best in Yangon. Yes, the prices are also the most, but you pay for what you get and here it's worth every penny. This would normally be twice the price... More

The rave reviews of this hotel are fully justified. We stayed there twice in August, once for a couple of days on arrival in Myanmar, and again at the end of the trip. Beautiful grounds and pool, and lovely rooms - worth upgrading to The Governor's Room. Easy to get in and back from downtown Yangon - the hotel can... More
