What a delight!

Look no further, the Yangon Excelsior is a stunning hotel in what must be the best location in Yangon. As others have said, the road approaching the hotel is a bit run down, but that only makes entering the hotel all the more fabulous. Wonderful staff at hotel and restaurants, gorgeous rooms that will make you question whether you want to leave to explore this fascinating city. I truly hope to return one day. Thank you for showing me the definition of hospitality.

I had the privilege to spend two nights living like a king at the charming new Yangon Excelsior Hotel. What an incredible hotel. Located in an old colonial building constructed around 1930, this hotel made me feel super special the moment I stood in front of its beautiful entrance.

Decorated to reflect the rich history of the building, the rooms are stylish and modern, with a flair of history - including an old typewriter with a personal welcome letter from Mr. Philippe Arnaud, the friendly General Manager, as well as old-style telephones. The bathroom and beds are heavenly.

Thanks to Philippe and the staff who made my stay so very special. Indeed THE place to stay when you are visiting Yangon!

What a fabulous hotel with amazingly helpful and smiley 😊 staff. They were so helpful from start to finish and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was delicious 😋 and they got to know my favourites. Lunch was delicious and the mocktails mouth watering It was a wonderful welcome to Yangon as a single female traveller. The building itself was immaculate and my huge bedroom full of luxury and good taste. Goes down as a favourite for me 💙💖🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 🌟Thanks you

This beautiful and swanky hotel could easily be in NYC where it would be $600/night. It’s truly 5 star as is the staff. They can’t do enough for you and speak perfect English. I stayed 3 nights and ended up eating dinner here every night because I was too tired to venture back out after long days of sight seeing. Food was great. Breakfast was the best of my trip. The linens on the bed were nicer than those I have at home. My only (small) complaint would be that I found the bed too hard *but* that was the case everywhere during my two week trip in Laos and Myanmar. Think it’s just their norm and personal preference. You can’t go wrong here- it deserves it’s accolades.

We just enjoyed 5 nights in the beautifully decorated Yangon Excelsior Hotel! It was quiet, comfortable bed linens, towels to be able to rest from jet lag. Because our days were full and temperatures hot and traffic delays, we enjoyed most of our evening meals in the exceptional restaurants at the hotel! We loved the lamb chops and braised lamb shank at Steel Brothers Restaurant. The News Room was great for soups and loved the traditional fermented tea leaf salad. We left behind a fancy treasured water bottle and housekeeping found it for us! Loved the espresso in room and my husband loved the free beer in room! Breakfasts were a treat with service a la carte menu fancy eggs benedict with a drizzle of pesto ! Lovely! Arparc our breakfast waiter, Nicholas evenings...Kudos to front desk staff and all the waiters! Not enough good can be said!
We will definitely return!
