This is a fantastic hotel. As high a quality as you will find anywhere in the world. The manager (an Italian bloke) was a nice guy and making sure things ran smoothly at night and had some interesting stories. Will (Self assigned English name) was an excellent bar tender with some great info and advice on Burma. We also were served by a female bar tender the best cocktails I've ever had in South East Asia. Rooms were very nice as were the gardens and pool. Breakfast was excellent and we also got in room massages which were good. Highly recommended.

this hotel is an amazing place to stay at.
traveling with 3 kids (10,5 and 1) they put us in a single room with two daybeds for the 10 a 5 years old + baby cot for the baby.
food is excellent
very nice bathroom
lot of amenities in the bathroom
view from the room is very nice (garden)
very nice pool
international staff (italian manager)
waiters are very nice but sometimes you have to be very clear about what you need and probably they will not understand
very close to the pagoda

If you're looking for a true 5-star experience you've come to wrong country. But if you want to enjoy beautiful gardens, a lovely pool and a great meal in comfort and luxury, this is the place in Rangoon. The rooms are extremely comfortable and look out over beautiful gardens. The gardens are what make this place so special- peace and quiet in the middle of a noisy city. Dinner and breakfast were lovely.

A wonderful place to begin and end your Myanmar (Burma) adventure...quiet, serene and utterly relaxing in a city growing busier by the day. Pool is perfect. Rooms simple, clean, large and nice. Staff is quietly attentive. I would recommend this hotel over all others in the Yangon. (But word to the wise, don't pay retail--ask and you shall receive a discount!)...and a smile!
