Located in the neighborhood of the embassy's this hotel is surrounded by lush green gardens, a generous pool, a good little spa and has a couple of good restaurants. I have to say overall I was a bit disappointed of my stay, I believe this was as I had just come off the 12 day river cruise on the Road to Mandalay by Orient Express. That set the bench mark on the service and attitude of the staff, alas for us at check in, I felt it was very abrasive and rather rude by the lady who checked us in. Throughout our couple of nights stay, although the staff were friendly, the service was not exceptional. Naturally I thought perhaps that is what one is dealt with in a country still developing its service industry, however, at the other hotel we stayed in in Yangon (The Strand) I felt the service was better & so was the Road to Mandalay. However, lets get back to the hotel. The rooms are very generous in size, not elegant or 5 starish, simple with wooden floors, wood furniture and large enough to fit two sofas. The bathroom was great, with a big sunken bathtub in stone. And great products in the room and service, cleanliness was perfect. The food was good and well presented, with the F&B Manager spending time with us to explain the food and wine paring. If you have a few trips to Yangon as part of your visit to Myanmar I would choose this as one of the hotels to stay in, especially so you can get a comparison. Perhaps even this one at the end of your trip, so you can also relax by the pool and gardens.
