“Newly renovated but could use some improvement...”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

Newly renovated club rooms are very nice but it could have been better if your room has the view of the Shwe Dagon but unfortunately in this trip, I was given a room with a not so nice view...The Traders Lounge which is temporarily in the third floor since it's undergoing renovation, could use a lot of improvement in their food choices. You get the same thing everyday - even tried Traders Cafe but it's the same dishes that you get daily. Maybe the hotel should look into this when they are finished with the renovation - food choices! Price that you pay for the club room is quite high, too. Front desk staff should be properly trained on how to handle guests - preferably with a smile and with the sincere attitude to help out a guest. Since Myanmar has opened up, it will have an influx of international guests with varied needs so they should be trained properly how to handle these varied needs.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of Shwe Dagon!

This is a good business hotel well located downtown near sule pagoda. There are a few restaurants around and the Scott market is just up the road. It's generally a good hotel and the service is great with good personal touches. The issue for now is that the room rates have skyrocketted to international levels but the quality is not there. Significant renovations are ongoing causing noise and a downgrade of facilities. It sticks in the throat a bit when the daily rate has doubled in 3 months. I would shop around a bit to see if a better deal is to be had although to be fair demand is high for Myanmar at the moment. They need to lift their game to justify the price.

It is located strategically at the city's center near Sule Pagoda. The rooms are nice and clean, and amities in the bathroom are excellent for a four star hotel standard. Breakfast selection and quality of food are great. Most importantly, the staff are friendly and helpful!

45min from the airport in the middle of downtown Yangon, the hotel is conveniently located for business travellers with great accessibility to markets / offices all around. 50% of the rooms are under peaceful interior renovation. Most of the rooms have a city or port-side view, the higher the better view. Service and staff is just outstanding. The food is good but with many tourists coming in now from different parts of the world, an overall revamp of the menu would be great - for the spicily inclined ask for the Maldivian fish curry. The hotel has a great lobby for all your business meetings and a good WiFi. In case your business looks up take a stroll to the famous Scott Market for gems/jade/local art next doors.

Room Tip: Request for Trader Club rooms on the higher floors

As mentioned in other reviews, some parts of the hotel are still undergoing renovation and will supposedly be completed at the end of the year. The cafe and club lounge are relocated temporarily to the function rooms on the 3rd floor. The quality of the food served is good, although the same cannot be said for the ambience. I stayed in a room on the Club Floor which has been renovated. The bed is comfortable and bathroom facilities are adequate, however, the decoration and design are rather out of date.
Overall, it is a good hotel with good service.

The newly renovated club room was excellent, except the working chair which is normal and difficult to move and non-adjustment.
Food was good and tasteful.
The staff was very helpful and know what they are doing. Very Charming people.
However, the room rate in Yangon is generally too high, in comparison of the region.

Room Tip: Club room, non smoking floor
