Pros: The cafe area has papers from Singapore, Thailand, Myanmar USA to spend a slow morning read through. Take a walk through the gardens outside to see the giant T-Rex statue and many jungle plants and trees. You can also walk to Schwedagon Pagoda (if you like 20-30minute scenic walk) from there. Cons: Need more time to enjoy.

Beautiful hotel not far from the Shwedagon pagoda. We had a spacious room with a balcony looking over the garden. The shower is great and everything was perfectly clean. We ordered some good cocktails and enjoyed the lounge area outside. The pool is big and the view over the lake is absolutely beautiful. There was continental and asian breakfast including... More

This place is Disney meets bad-taste dictator.... It is a government owned hotel and boy… good taste is definitely the forte. Keep in mind that some people do not want to stay or eat at government owned hotels or restaurants. I did not pay too much attention to this when I was doing my bookings for the trip, but when...

If you paid for a superior room and not a deluxe room-just forget the lake and pagoda view. At best with the superior room, you will have a garden view but check it out before to ensure that your garden view is not in fact totally obstructed by a roof. Avoid rooms in the 330, there might be other bad... More

The hotel is a good choice for business travellers as it has all the amenities of a an international standard hotel. However, it is not trendy and looks more traditional Burmese than anything else. The staff was friendly, the room was simple and functional, clean and the food and beverage service was correct. All in all, one of the good... More

I say "jungle" because of the dense foliage and flowers on the grounds of this hotel. It is in walking distance to the zoo and a bit further is the outstanding Shwedagon Pagoda which can be viewed from the upper floors of the hotel. Our room was clean, great bed and pillow choices, nice amenities, and a most cordial staff.... More

This is a gorgeous hotel and the staff is fantastic, but it was built when silent rooms were not a big issue. We were here for 6 nights and at times, it was fine. But, the walls are thin and you can hear every single person talking in the hallway. The doors have the most irritating jingle when opened and... More

For people in need of quietness and kindness, this is your hotel in Yangon,facing a large lake,wrapped by a dense and flowery landscape. This hotel has a step in the 90's for interior decoration,but it doesn't feel wrong. Have our breakfast outside,enjoy the noisy birds and the pool and you'll feel relaxed for the rest of your day.

We stayed 1 night at this hotel. It is well located, right down to the Pagoda Shwedagon and Staff was professional. The breakfast is ok but not fantastic. The hotel needs renovation, our room smelt moist and it felt quiet outdated.
