While the staff was pleasant, this hotel was simply wretched. Our room was filthy, small and old. The breakfast was unpleasant, and very minimal. The free wifi was just about useless; it was often unavailable, and when we could connect, it was incredibly slow. One night, we had to listen to a dog barking all night long. In addition, we...

The staff was nice in a general way but the facilities and rooms are so dirty,old, ans crap.looks like all the furnitures are 50 years old. And as in almost all hotels in myanmar the price for value is so bad: it is expensive but with no quality service in return. I do not recommend this hotel. Breakfast is a... More

I agree with all the previous reviews of other travelers: 1.we were a group of 20 people staying in the hotel for 10 days in January (last month). The rooms were in various state of disarray. if it was not the light not working, then it was the shower not working, the water heater above the toilet was leaky (so... More

The name is very grand and the location is good close to the Inya Lake. Rooms are spacious but smell of old carpet. They are refurbishing the hotel so there was a lot of noise and the internet was not working well. The value for money is not great at 60 USD a room you expect a bit more. However... More

The superior and deluxe rooms in this hotel are big with good beds and there is air conditioning. The bathroom is sufficient but not great. It is likely that something will go wrong either with the water, internet, phone line etc, but the service is good and the staff are fairly good at solving any problems. There is not much... More

We have been staying at the Royal White Elephant Hotel for 83 nights, as long-stay guests. In total our stay generated revenue of approximately USD 7700 for room nights and daily meals. For this considerable high amount of money in return we received an extremely bad performance. My husband’s company booked us into his hotel since it is close to... More

We have been staying at the Royal White Elephant Hotel for several weeks, as long-stay guests. So this hotel became like a second home. I was booked in here by my company as my office is nearby and Yangon is under-supplied by hotels. We had a package arrangement, including food at their restaurant. Actually, like most non-branded hotels in Myanmar... More

The rooms are definitely overpriced like any other hotel in Myanmar. However, the staff is really really friendly and the bathroom and the room itself are quite clean compared to what we had in other hotels. The wifi is for free but it works slowly. There is a TV with few English channels which is nice. The location is a... More

My room was large and reasonably comfortable for this price range in Rangoon. The airconditioning and hot water worked. Even the free wifi worked well, although this may be because I was on the ground floor, which had the disadvantage of some noise from the parking lot just outside my window. Only local channels on the TV. Staff was friendly.... More
