I stayed here last year when it was still called The Traders Hotel, now it is the Shangri-La. My colleagues opted to stay at The Strand and once they came to my hotel to meet me they all agreed they would have preferred staying here. You can easily walk to Sule Pagoda, Bogyoke Aung San Market (Scott's Market), and neighborhood restaurants if you are adventurous enough to try (I was).
This is a luxury, 5-star, business class hotel and very popular with tourists and businessmen alike. It is one of the most centrally located and well known hotels in all of Yangoon, every taxi driver will know where it is. The ground floor lobby restaurant had an excellent breakfast spread and overall the service was good. Internet everywhere in Myanmar is spotty so don't blame the hotel, but I found the WiFi access to mostly work ok.More
