We stayed 2 nights in this hotel before an 8 day river cruise. It was the best way to begin this type of trip at nearly the hottest time of the year. The setting is perfect, quiet and spacious. The staff were superb, always genuinely friendly, helpful and engaging. The in house restaurants were excellent and food of wide ranging variety very good. Such hotels are not yet in abundance in Myanmar but we would not hesitate to visit the Chatrium again.

We stayed at the Chatrium Hotel for 4 nights in March. The hotel is in a peaceful location and the rooms with Club access were a good size. The lounge I found to be small but satisfactory and the staff were all friendly. The breakfast offered a good variety catering to all tastes and nationalities. I ate dinner in the restaurant twice and did not enjoy the food at all.

You can buy sim cards for your phone for $25.00 for 20 minutes of international calls from the souvenir shop to the right of the lift. I was unable to get a line out of the country but it worked on local calls.

A taxi into the city costs 3000Kyats. The exchange rate in March was about 850 Kyats to the USD. The exchange rate at the hotel was the same rate that was offered at the airport.

Overall a good comfortable stay.

Had one night a the Chatrium Hotel and it is def not 5 star standard. The rooms are old but certainly spacy and clean. They have a pool outside and the breakfast is ok but all not worth the money. But hard to find something better in Yangoon at the moment...

Possibly the only hotel in Myanmar to aspire to 5 star status.
The last day we were there, the Myanmar Military hired the conference centre to host the " Passing Out" graduation ceremony of their Navy.
Well appointed in beautiful. spacious grounds opposite the Royal Lake, with Spa, Swimming Pool, Gymnasium, and good free WiFi.
There are 3 top restaurants including Japanese that has cleanly gentle and very fresh food for a much travelled stomach!
Be sure to pre-book a non-smoking room if that is your preference, as whole floors still have a heavy smoking smell.
Apparently prices have doubled in the last year as affluent tourists are now arriving in numbers.

Room Tip: Ask for a top floor room with views across the City to the justly famous Shwedagon Pagoda

Everything you would expect of a business hotel - staff all speak English, very comfortable and modern rooms, free in-room wifi (one device only though), and good, reasonably priced in-house food.

I stayed on the first day of my trip, and returned again a few days later for my final day - and was treated as "returning guest" with welcoming fruit bowl in room, which was a very thoughtful touch.

The hotel is about 20 minutes away from the new international airport (without traffic), but traffic can get pretty bad, so leave enough time for yourself.

The hotel houses an embassy and several international organization offices, so security is not a problem here.

Be advised that from time to time there are "external" issues with internet and mobile connectivity - and this is not the fault of the hotel, and happens throughout the country, so be patient. This didn't happen during my stay, but a colleague had reported this previously.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms on Level 5 for non-smoking. Also Level 2 is where the spa is located, so avoid thi...

After almost 2 weeks in northern Myanmar, I couldn't wait to be back in chatrium. Comfortable, pleasant and clean. Japanese buffet at the hotel restaurant was great - one of the best in a country where Japanese cuisine hasn't been caught on yet by locals.
