“A good, honest hotel with friendly helpful staff”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

We stayed in a deluxe suite here for our first 2 nights in Myanmar. Location of the Hotel is good - there are some untidy parts of Yangon but this area is pretty good with some good restaurants nearby. Only 2500 kyats to get a taxi to go to the markets etc and a very short walk to the Pagoda. A good sized room with a good view of the Pagoda, friendly and helpful staff. Breakfasts were good, currency exchange within the complex which changed Aussie dollars, a swimming pool for a quick dip to cool off at the end of the day. We felt comfortable and at home in this Hotel. The only downside is no free wifi (cost is $10 for 24 hours). Overall, an enjoyable stay and would not hesitate to use again for a couple of nights in Yangon. Definitely a better stay than the other Hotel where we stayed on the last night in Yangon which was double the price of this one.

Room Tip: We had Room 442 - looks out towards the Pagoda

We stayed here for a few weeks in September, and overall it was a good hotel. The room is old with worn out carpet and bathroom. Besides these low points, it is clean. The service staff is very helpful and does speak English. Money exchange is right down the hall from the lobby. Breakfast has both local and Western food. The location is excellent, with great restaurants within a 5-10 min walk. Facing the hotel there is a wonderful Thai's place just on the right hand side. Right across the street is also a local's favorite. The gorgeous Shwedagon Pagoda, can be seen from the hotel window, is just a 15 min walk. We went there at 6am in the morning, and it was just magical. For 1500 Kt, you can go to Bogyoke Market, which is one of the best place to shop for souvenirs. The sales people are not aggressive like some other Asian's country. The taxi are mostly old, but the drivers are the nicest ones that I have ever seen. One driver actually gave us 500 Kt back after he realized that our destination was closer than he originally thought it would be. (He had asked for 2000kt, and we had agreed to it.) Internet is now available in the room, but it is still extremely slow. With a speed that can be use for email and search engine , but not for downloading media. There is Internet in the business center that is a little faster, with $3/hr fee. However, there is complete shut down of the Internet a few times a week for hours at a time still. For the price that we paid, this was a good hotel, and we will stay here again next time,

I stayed at the Summit Parkview on my first night in Yangon and eight days later for another night, at the end of my mini-tour of Myanmar.
Overall, the hotel represents a good solution for a quick stopover in Yangon on your way in and out, I wouldn't recomment a longer stay, though.
Rooms are a bit shabby, simple, tired and vaguely smell of mould; humidity is pretty tangible despite the aircon system. The lobby area could do with a good revamp.
The Money changing facility within the hotel is very useful and their rates of exchange are definitely better than the ones at the airport.
The buffet breakfast is quite rich and offers Asian, local as well as traditional Western options: bakery, yoghurt, cereals, fruit, juices, an omelette station, mixed grill and cold cuts and cheeses.
All staff is extremely polite and helpful, the level of spoken English is quite high.

We stayed here for two separate nights and were pleased with our stays. The rooms were fine, with excellent views of the Pagoda which were particularly good at night. Breakfast was good both in the restaurant and the packed breakfast provided when we had a very early morning flight. There are good restaurants nearby for dinner.

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.
