The hotel location is very good, by the lake and in a nice part of Yangon. We stayed there for two nights. Room are quite dated, and too humid. Not so comfortable indeed. The rest is ok. Just nearby the hotel in a walkable distance there is a nice restaurant and bar lounge.

The hotel architecture, garden, staff and atmosphere is unique. Of course it is old but still the service and kindness of sraff is extremely rewarding. Reading a book or have breakfast in the garden is wonderful. I was playing the flute in the lake at sunset, few places can give you that

Beautifully laid out traditional Myanmar structures smack in the centre of the city within good proximity to everything whether on business or tour. The wood theme has been well maintained. Nice pool area designed to blend with its extensive natural garden setting. Astride the garden at the back of the hotel is the Kandawgyi Lake (Royal Lake) with a distant... More

About 45 to 90 minutes from the airport depending on traffic. Expansive resort-style hotel on the beautiful Kandawgyi Lake. Five floors with multiple wings. Fast elevators and teakwood stairs. In fact lots of teak and carved hardwood throughout the complex. Very friendly, helpful staff outnumbered guests during the rainy season. Smooth check-in with welcome juice in quiet, comfortable, non-smoking lobby.... More

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.
