Yangon hotels are extremely expensive.
We stayed at this hotel on a package tour and were very impressed with most aspects, compared to other hotels in which we stayed in Inle Lake, Mandalay and Bagan.
The location necessitates a taxi ride to the city, but is peaceful, set in acres of gardens with a swimming pool which we did not have time to access, located on the shores of Lake Inya.
There is a money change facility in the foyer offering very competitive rates.
Our room on stays at the beginning and end of our tour (room 227), although facing the carpark, was spacious, with quality bed mattresses, crisp linen and fluffy thick towels. The bathroom had a spacious rain shower. The air conditioning was effective, and the wifi speed in the room was excellent (for Myanmar).
Breakfast was OK, with both eastern and western offerings, although wait staff at 5.30-6.30 am were almost impossible to locate.
Our tour group dined in the downstairs Chinese restaurant, which was extremely disappointing, with bland, overcooked food.
Don’t pre-book an expensive transfer to and from the airport. Air-conditioned taxis are readily available for $10 USD in both directions. Just make sure you negotiate the price before hopping into to the taxi. The time will usually be 20-30 minutes, or 60 minutes if you become ensnarled in the frequent traffic jams in Yangon.
