Beautiful hotel with a panoramic view either on the lake or on the Pagodas. The service is very careful with basically all you can need in the rooms (toothbrush, comb etc). They also have a nice garden with a terrace on the lake.

I have spent 3 nights here and I had the possibility to experience the comfort of the hotel, it's nice restaurant, it's tasty and complete breakfast. Moreover something that is remaining in mind is the kindness of the people insid of the hotel and in the all city. A nice place to stay. I will be back!

We stayed here on 4 occasions during November/December, each visit was excellent, staff service all through the hotel could not be faulted. The rooms were clean and in very good condition. Excellent variety available for breakfast. Delightful outlook over the lake.

I stay here several nights a month, and have done so for a couple of years the location, on the banks of Kandawgyi Lake, is stunning and I note that there are significantly fewer mosquitoes than on earlier stays the buffet breakfast is really very good, with authentic Burmese dishes my main grouse is the quality of the internet, but...

This property represents the epitome of colonial elegance. The service is excellent, the environment is classically colonial and the restaurants offer a full range of food choices. The rooms are comfortable and the location gives you easy access to Shwedagon and the lake. Relax in the lap of luxury.

Yangon is becoming more and more westernized in hotel prices, although you still pay in cash they understand and attend the needs of the guests. The hotel is a very nice property on the lake with nice lobby and smiling staff. Room are spacious and include all standard amenities. Breakfast is good with all selections on western as well as...

An imposing building full of teak and tiered roofs. Choose a room with views of the beautiful lake and park. Spacious well appointed bedrooms, very helpful and polite staff. The location is convenient for Yangon's most impressive attraction the Shwedagon Pagoda but quite a way from downtown. There is a choice of restaurants some very expensive one more reasonable but...

I am happy to have chosen this excellent colonial style hotel. Amazing view on the lake, very nice room and hobby and well trained staff. Excellent place for business or family time. One internet router per room was convenient (as internet is quite poor in Myanmar). I will definitely come back for my next business trip Thank you Guillaume
