“Decent stay”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

Considering this is a somewhat middle range hotel, its pretty ok. Its my resident hotel for my business trips so far.

Pros:
1. Clean rooms
2. Friendly staff
3. 15min stroll to the Shwedagon Paya
4. Wireless throughout whole hotel
5. Very good thai-burmese restaurant directly opp the hotel (I love it)
6. 5min walk to a nice Gloria Jeans coffee place which surprisingly opens till 11pm.

Cons:
1. Sub-par breakfast
2. Slow wireless speeds (but I think its prob the same with most middle range hotels cos the broadband is shared)

All in all, a fairly decent/good hotel. My main issue is with the hotel prices, which have been increasing rapidly over the last 12 months. This is happening across all hotels in Yangon.

This hotel has an excellent location and we had a room with a view! The Shwegadon Pagoda is stunning! I gave an extra point just for the view. The hotel is very basic. No safe in the room, no powerpoints in the bathroom, but it is clean. For Myanmar standards okay, I suppose. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was fine and the dinner was fine too. Wifi in the room.

Overpriced, outdated, food ok but nothing to brag about. No electric plugs in bathroom. Charged an extra $34.50 for second person. They do not take credit cards. The staff was plesant enough...but tried to charge us $20 for a lost key...we refused and left. Moved to Trader and were much happier with the room and location.

The rooms are clean and tidy, although a little expensive for what you get - but that's the nature of the city. The pool is clean and has decent lounges. Don't order room service food. I spent two days eating Myanmar food without issue, but stupidly ate room service food on the second to last day so wasted my entire last day in bed. Just don't be tempted.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the Shwedagon Pagoda.

Came with quite low expectations and I must say I was pleasantly surprised, the rooms were of medium size, the important thing is very clean and the house keeping was good. Front office staff and concierge were very helpful and pleasant. Wifi worked well in the room on my iPad, free passwords are given from the business center. The crowning glory was the location. within 10-15minutes from the city centre and located right opposite a park. Hence no sky scrapers or ugly bundling to stare at from your room. the environment was very quite and clean. And an amazing place to either go for a walk or a jog in the morning or evening. I would have expected a safe in the room..Myanmar is very safe and chance of theft exceptionally low for this part of the world but a safe should have been there in the room. The coffee shop was just passable the buffet was the same very day for breakfast and nothing much to offer any way. Of course some lovely places to try Myanmar cuisine within walking distance hence didn't have to use the coffee shop at all expert for breakfast. I strongly suggest you try them great to pace to interact with locals as well as enjoy their food and hospitality. The night club again not recommended...many better places to go to.

The outside looks great and even the Lobby is pretty with staff friendly meeting you at the door with beverage, but the rooms need a major workover. Their is not a lot of restaurants close and the coffee shop close to the Summit has issues with food poisoning. Just be careful.

Room Tip: If you want to see the pagoda day and night, choose a room at the front of the hotel

I just want to highlight why I continue to stay each time at Summit Parkview when in Yangon. I just love all the staff - they go way out of their way to help you, from trying to satisfy your room preferences, storing your luggage in between trips, getting taxis for you - helping in every way! In particular, when I dislocated my finger, they quickly helped me get a taxi - they told the driver which hospital to go to and to wait for me, etc. In another instant, they drove my stored luggage to the airport so that I could retrieve my passport that I had inadvertently left in my stored luggage - for me, these two actions and more went way above and beyond! In sum, the staff were most caring - since I was travelling in country a lot, Summit Parkview became like my home away from home in Yangon.
The hotel is clean, the daily breakfast is great, the pool is refreshing and always clean and not crowded - while there are some little things that will likely be taken care of in time, such as changing hallway carpets and freshening hall walls, I was comfortable in all rooms that I stayed in - the lobby is very welcoming, light and and with good space - it has a comfortable space to sit and live music is regularly played. I happen to prefer the rooms that face the pool as they are quieter.
I prefer the location of this hotel to that of the hotels in the center of the city because it is located across the street from People's Park and close to the Schwe Dagon Pagoda and lakes - it is good for walks.
When I left the hotel this last time, knowing that it would be for a long stretch, Cho Cho, one of the staff came out of the hotel to wave farewell - truly, a hotel that makes one feel most welcome and at home. (I stayed there in October/November for over three weeks and between Jan-April whenever in Yangon.)
