“best part of Myanmar .. !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

Stay at Kandawgyi Palace Hotel is really like stay at my own home. The people are very nice, warm and they are eager to help me at any time, especially for me who can not read and speak Myanmar.
The food is good and Halal also ! I asked for the pork they said they do not serve the pork meat ( at least during my stay). It was really good ! I do not have to eat my Rendang that I brought from my home. he he
The room is nice although it was not new but they are well maintained.
The view of the lake from my room in the morning and afternoon was unforgettable !
Dinner at the pool side .. something that everybody had to try !
Thanks guys ! you are good !

The hotel is supposed to be the best in the city, the first night I arrived, my bathroom was flodded with foam, they moved me to a suite on the top floor, after I complained a lot. The suite was ok, but hot, and the air conditioning was not working well. In the morning I was electrocuted in the bathroom where the electricity is definitely not up to standards. The staff is friendly and needs a lot of training, still a long way to go ...

This hotel isn't mentioned in the lonely planet guide so I didn't know what to expect but it was very good, wonderful setting, lovely big rooms with good wifi access. The breakfast was the best in Myanmar and we had a la carte very good Asian food for dinner, instead of the ubiquitous buffet (which are never cheap and make you eat too much!). The beds were so comfy and the pool is right on the lake.

Friendly, calm atmosphere. Good food. Outdoor or indoor dining. Attentive staff. I loved the location just by the lake.
I found the Italian unreasonable expensive and a little bit odd, considered its location in inexpensive Burma.

The hotel rate is reasonably acceptable and very limit to find in Yangon. The hotels in this city are over price. However, Kandawgyi Palace Hotel is okay. The room was very large and has teak wooden floor. It may be a bit dark for working, the additional desk lamp is needed. The buffet breakfast was fantastic with many varieties of many nations. The lobby was very crowded due to its popular for meeting and many tour groups gathering.
The bed was very comfortable and exceeding my expectation for this city.

Our first night in Yangon was at this lovely hotel. Every effort was made to ensure our comfort. The rooms were comfortable and the breakfast buffet contained foods for all tastes and needs. The lobby was pleasant for a drink and getting together with friends after touring. The friendly staff, good food and comforts at this hotel make it a winner.

We stayed there for one night but we wanted to stay more. We had a deluxe room, spacious and clean and well decorated with a view to the lake. The lobby was large decorated for Christ mas and a singer playing the piano. They also exhibited items found during the construction of the hotel aging thousand of years.For dinner we prefered the buffet offer because they had alarge variety of dishes and desserts. Overall a very nice hotel.
