In a hot and dusty city, the Strand is an oasis of serenity. Recalling Colonial times, the hotel rooms are large, with high ceilings and extremely comfortable beds. Each floor has its own butler. The food in the cafe was excellent although service was a bit slow. The shops in the annex have items ranging from souvenir trinkets to beautiful textiles and paintings.

We stopped off for tea and cake at the Strand. The epitomy of colonialism. Prices are quite expensive but not unexpected for this standard of hotel. It really took you back in time to what it must have been like when the British were in Burma in the 1950s

just take the opportunity to relax in the Strand-Café for real 'English Hight Tea'.

We did it everyday while we were in Yangon - the cakes were just too excellent...and the atmosphere is just amazing.

Built in 1896 by the Sarkies Brothers, like the Raffles Singapore
It s a luxurious Victorian style Hotel , superbly managed by GHM and the present general manager, Mr Didier Belmonte , Spacious rooms and bathrooms , excellent service , amazing food .....the Bar is a must especially on Fridays when everybody in Yangon meet .
One off the great Hotel in Asia , ( The only down , there is no facilities , garden , pool,...)

Yes, that's usually a cliche, but at the Stand it rings true. The moment you step into the hush of the lobby, with it's high, high ceilings and giant bouquets you will begin to relax. Registration is simple, and yes they will take credit cards,,,but at 6% commission.

Room categories seem a bit confusing, but we had booked an Executive Suite. This consisted of a plus size king bed, sitting area with a sofa and two chairs, fruit basket and a bottle of french bubbly. 14 foot ceilings made it seem even larger, and the door to the room had it's own little corridor with another door that separated it from the floor attendant's (well these days they're all "Butlers") desk. The butler was there 24/7 and ran all your errands from laundry to room service. (I want one at home!)

Bathroom included double vanities, large tub and separate rain shower and a separate toilet compartment. Lots of nice smells from the flowers and the amenities. It would all be a bit over the top but for the odd quirks like a ragged piece of carpeting placed under one of the large potted plants. That did remind you that you were indeed in Yangon. It smelled awful, but the Butler soon took care of the problem.

There are only about 35 rooms/suites so even when the hotel is full it seems as though you have a private house to yourself and the staff. Unless it's Friday afternoon or evening. drinks are then 2 for 1 in the charming bar and the place is seriously packed with ex-pats staking out their spots and curious tourists checking the place out.

Note: There is no pool or spa on site, and although we were told access to either could be arranged we never explored this option.

Room Tip: We got a great rate through Leading Hotels of the World web sale
