We stayed here two (short) nights when arriving and leaving Myanmar. Service is attentive and the rooms are nice. We were on the third floor (quiet rooms). All the decoration is boutique hotel like. The location is pretty good as you will have to choose between a location in the city "centre" (downtown) or around Shwedagon pagoda (which is the... More

Having booked a ground floor, pool facing room a year ago we were told we were on the second floor 34 steps up. As we both have knee problems this was not acceptable. In the end we had to settle for a ground floor twin room by the road. The staff were very unfriendly, they did not show us where... More

We landed in Yangon after a long flight and didn't know what to expect, as it was our first time in Myanmar/Burma. So when we arrived at the Savoy, we were very pleased with what a great standard it was. It has a charming colonial feel - lots of dark wood floors and ornate trimmings, and there's a nicely sized...

I'll be honest -- I can't speak about the hotel itself as we never got to stay there, but I can speak for the hotel's great customer service. Due to a communication mix-up, we turned up expecting a confirmed room, which the hotel had re-sold as we had not reconfirmed. They emailed us leading up to our trip, but their... More

Nice enough, but nothing special. Poor location, 45 mins to downtown in the awful traffic. Average breakfast and for dinner you are better to walk across the road to the "Friendship Restaurant" where it is hard to spend more than $10US for 2 meals and 4 beers and the food is really tasty.

We love this sweet, colonial gem of a hotel tucked away from the madness of the traffic of the city. Close to the Pagoda with views from the restaurant at sunset and sunrise, the rooms are huge, quiet, serene and really well appointed. Ours overlooked the pool and central courtyard which was wonderful. Fabulous staff and a great bar.

Hotels are in short supply in Yangon, and therefore are expensive and poor value. With that in mind, the Savoy is a great choice in the boutique category - good quality service - nicely decorated rooms with antique furniture, teak, etc - truly excellent breakfast - swimming pool - located right by the Shwedagon pagoda Great place for first night...

The Savoy Hotel is a four star colonial boutique hotel committed to personalized and attentive service.

All 24 deluxe rooms and six suites express the charm of “the old days” with traditional Myanmar antiques, teak furniture and spacious bathrooms. Nicely overshadowed by tall old trees, the large pool with its lounge area makes the Savoy Hotel a silent oasis in the middle of the buzzing city. ... more   less
