“View of the Shwedagon Pagoda from my room”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

You are right by a park as th name suggests and although not really walking distance you are very close to the biggest Buddhist temple I have ever seen - covered all in rubies diamonds and gold donated by relatives of the deceased and access by elevator it is so big.

Service not too bad, polite and friendly staff and tips in US dollars greatly appreciated. Taxis cheap but ramshackle but cheap,

We were on business to visit a ew pharmaceutical companies so did not have much chance for sightseeing - tip many restaurants out by the lakes but avoid the floating palaces and go for a lakeside restaurant - many have a stage show with excellent dances etc. Great food there but don't expect too much from the restaurant of this hotel

Rooms a bit past it bu the view from my room was great could see the Shwedagon Pagoda in the distance - very pleasent

A location away from the centre, but convenient for the Shwedagon Pagoda. Spacious rooms and good service made for a pleasant stay. The public areas are attractive. Good money changing facility. The breakfast buffet offers plenty of choice.

A straight-forward business hotel reminding me of the European type IBIS hotels. In terms of price/quality I still think the price is slightly on the high side for what this hotel has to offer to the business traveller for USD 85-100 per night, including breakfast.

Rooms are poor to fair, but with most amenities, including a water cooker and a old-small TV set. Towels were clean. Food was good. No quality spa. No in-room massage service. A bar with no younger folks. A business center where a normal USB stick could not work and the young employee of no help; it took us over 30 minutes to print 15 pages for about USD 0.5 per A4 page!

One must be aware that you do not always have a view on the Buddha Temple. So, please request for it or stay away, otherwise you will have fun with looking over the old roofs of retired buildings!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with the Buddha Temple view.

We stayed here for two nights in July. We found it to be clean and the staff helpful. It was conveniently located near the Shwedagon Pagoda and within walking distance to a number of restaurants. We especially liked the new Indian restaurant right next door, the Coriander Leaf. My only critique- no internet in the rooms and they charged for it in the lobby.

A fine hotel for business travellers, but not for tourists, who want more ambience. The restaurant was over-priced and the buffet platters were often empty and cold. The wifi didn't work that well. The pool was small. They contract out the spa, and we truly disliked the massages. As I look at this site post-facto, I wish we had insisted on the Governor's Residence. Pricier but more memorable.

After a very long flight, this hotel provided all the basic amenities plus. Pool looked very inviting but did not have time. Convenient, easy walk to the Shwedagon Pagoda -one of the main Yangon tourist attractions. Staff very helpful. Had absolutely delicious meal in the recently opened Coriander Leaf, next door to hotel. Very clean Indian restaurant, excellent veggie food - delicious!

This is a top end hotel in Yangon, Myanmar and as expected, is an international hotel. The location is good and the reception very efficient. The rooms conform to Western standards and are spacious.
The view from the top floors is superb.
There is an efficient business centre with internet connection.
The bar and the restaurant are good but be prepared for the delay as staff tend to be concerned with the cumbersome paperwork in billing.
As is the case elsewhere in Myanmar, credit/debit cards are NOT accepted and be prepared to pay in US Dollars.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the Pagoda.
