The Hotel has been quick to take advantage of the renewed interest in Myanmar and the resulting renovations have refreshed the public areas and the rooms on renovated floors significantly. The hotel is therefore justifiably busy and must be the top business hotel in Yangon.
I occupied a king bedded room on Level 19 with access to the Traders Club lounge which is temporarily on Level 3. The room itself is refreshing and bright. The bathroom is small but significantly has a modern shower. With access to wifi the room becomes a haven. Especially when the mobile phone network is not accessible to foreign mobile phones!
Breakfast at the Traders Club lounge is acceptable but the lounge itself is a compromise to a proper club lounge and the sooner the real one opens, the better. The staff are indeed very attentive. I had the use of the meeting rooms as part of the rate for the Traders Club room. It's comfortable and very suitable for meetings
I also had breakfast at the coffee house on the ground floor. Obviously with more food on offer and very popular. But if you order poached eggs, be prepared for a long wait.
The Chinese restaurant offers an all you can eat lunch for USD20 per person. I would rate it between average to good. Service though is consistent with the rest of the hotel being friendly and efficient.
I did not use the gym but a colleague did and said it was new large and excellent
The winning points are the refreshed look, the warm service, and the wifi! Currently the best place to stay in Yangon for business travelers
