Wonderful experience at this hotel. The rooms were very large, the breakfasts were in a charming area with wonderful service. Food was very good. You could feel the air history of Yangon in this hotel but the hotel itself was very comfortable. A great location that allows you to walk to most of Yangon's sites. Hope to return soon!

A lovely stay with really friendly staff. The rooms are well appointed and will be refinished soon. I fully recommend the afternoon tea which was tasty and a lovely treat. Followed up by a relaxing massage that finished off a fabulous trip to a friendly and welcoming country in style.

A splendid hotel this is with hopeful waiting for the completed refurbishment wherein a long awaited tea will finally occur.

An excellent hotel in Yangon. We stayed her with our parents in March 2016 and had a wonderful stay. The hotel is an all suite hotel, built around a central atrium. The hotel has a classic, old world charm with an air of exploration! Suites are vast with very high ceiling height giving a huge sense of space. The main... More

This celebrated hotel was a really fun place to stay. The overall vibe is British Colonial elegance and simplicity from its heyday. We enjoyed the authentic feel of the hotel, with floor butlers, older elevators and old fashioned keys that you leave with the butler while you are out. We found the service staff to be excellent and very accommodating.... More

To fully appreciate The Strand, you have to understand: 1) Yangoon is really really hot; 2) the traffic is insane. That means you don't want to have to take taxis and you can't walk very far without needing a break so pick your hotel location carefully. The Strand is a great option if you're looking for a tranquil place with... More

The building is absolutely stunning, the service is superb and the location was perfect for us. This was not a “hotel” stay, this was well beyond that, the place and service distinguish the Strand from any other “hotel”. The staff were very friendly, helpful and keen to help. From reception, through to the Bar, the restaurant, the café, the Butlers... More

The Strand is the only real hotel in Yangon still operating that is a direct throwback to the British Colonial period. This was one of three hotels that three brothers founded - the others are the Eastern & Orient in Penang and the iconic Raffles in Singapore... so the hotel certainly comes with good pedigree. Now admittedly I stayed late... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Strand Yangon closed on 1 May until November 2016 to undergo a complete facelift that will return the award-winning heritage hotel to its former glory. Constructed in 1901 in a classic colonial style, the hotel will retain its heritage architectural details, such as marble and teak wood flooring, ceiling fans, chandeliers, lacquer wood furniture, Burmese antiques, and signature service elements, while being given a complete upgrade and contemporary twist through a refreshed colour palette and subtle decorative details. The interiors of all the hotel's 31 suites will be redecorated in keeping with the Strand's legendary style and elegance, while at the same time updated with the latest technology, including new air conditioning, sound and communications systems. The Strand is famous around the world for its flawless, personalised service and suites will continue to be attended by the hotel's team of highly trained butlers. Once "The finest hostelry East of Suez", we are very eager to reveal the new Strand and bring it back to its former glory. Please continue visiting us for updates and bookings. ... more   less
