4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

Large, modern luxury hotel, part of the Shangri-la group. Little or no local character but nonetheless conveniently located and a very comfortable place, a welcome haven after a gruelling long-haul flight or on your return from travelling up-country. The staff are extremely helpful, the rooms are well-appointed, and everything works, or did when we were there! Bonuses include the sumptuous breakfast, large inviting swimming pool and free wifi. The only problem we had was the check-out procedure. We may have been unlucky but on two separate stays we encountered a degree of confusion in trying to settle the bill. In one case a special package we'd booked online seemed to be news to staff. On the other, we finally ended up with a correct bill but in the name of a complete stranger! Things did get sorted out but the process took quite a time.

Room Tip: There was ongoing building work on upper floors at the time of our stay but this affected one side o...

We went to Traders for a WE without kids, and it was perfect: very nice and spacious rooms and beds, excellent and very varied breakfast buffet, still a colonial looks in the lobby that fits well, friendly staff and very good location next to Aung San Market and Sule Pagoda.
Only 2 little negatives:
1. On check-in on a Fri evening - we arrived after midnight - we probably waited for 20 minutes just to get into our room: that could probably managed better a Mgmt should be aware on which flights travellers arrive.
2. Pool area not very charming as squeezed betw hotel and another building; there were not enough deck chairs for the number of people that wanted to relax after a day of visiting.
However, clear conclusion:
Highly recommend the place and would definitely return.

A good, well located hotel. It is very close to city centre and is well appointed and comfortable. Reasonable restaurants nearby for local food. It is well worth being close to the centre of Yangon. It is about 1 hour from the airport due to the heavy traffic.

This is a lovely hotel - lovely welcome by the staff, bedrooms beautifully appointed and very quiet probably due to the carpets on the outside hall floors. It is centrally located for all the local sightseeing places. Very nice french restaurant on the route to Scots Market which is very close to the hotel. Cannot understand why it only has a four star rating - should be higher. The higher the room you have the better view you get over Yangon downtown area! Also a good rooftop view.

Room Tip: go for a high up room unless you do not like heights!

We stayed here for 3 nights end of January 2013 in a Club room. The club lounge was fantastic with great staff and excellent food/drinks/breakfast. There is still ongoing building works in place but this did not affect our stay.
Staff spoke very good English and were very helpful with advice on changing of cash, trips etc.
Our room was on the top floor with exceptional views of the pagoda.
Plenty around the hotel to walk for shopping etc.
Our only complaint was that other residents could smoke in the lounge bar on the 1st floor which can be very uncomfortable for those of us who don't smoke but thankfully the staff made up for that with there excellent service with a smile.
All in all an extremely pleasant stay and would certainly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Recommend club rooms albeit more expensive.

Using this hotel as a base for the first 3 days of our time in Yangon. The location of the hotel is ideal and the rooms comfortable and spotless. The pool is large and pleasant but overlooked by neighbouring buildings. We were warned about the refurbishment but is caused no problems.

Room Tip: The higher the better

We stayed there one night in the premiere suite - it was great and I would recommend it to anybody. But the other types of rooms , I think , were good too. Beautiful interior, helpful staff, everything was on the very high level of service. The bathroom was excellent. the pillows and bed - very good. Mostly the hotel was occupied by business-trip voyagers but it could be kindly recommend for tourists.
