Stayed there for the first time for 4 nights while on a business trip to Myanmar. Normally, I would have stayed at the Traders Hotel, but the latter keeps raising its room rates even though my last stay there was only in February. This is the unfortunate reality in Yangon, where the recent influx of both tourists and business investors has caused an alarming increase in hotel room rates due to the severe shortage of rooms, especially in Yangon. I remember paying only US$70-80 per night at the Park Royal when I first visited Yangon in 2006 (Traders was about the same). Times have changed!

The Chatrium was comfortable, but lacked the freshness and modernity of the Traders. The bedsheets were clean and the room size was adequate, but the bathroom could do with better plumbing as the hot cold mixer was basic and the shower lever controlled both the temperature and the strength of the water flow either in a clockwise or anticlockwise direction. The square tiles in the shower had this odd black-speckled design, which made the shower cubicle appear constantly dirty even if it was not - wrong choice of tiles! My room on the 3rd floor overlooked the swimming pool, but there was not a soul in sight everytime I looked out of my windows because it was, after all the rainy season and there were light showers almost everyday. I must say that I really enjoyed the daily breakfast at the hotel as it had a good spread of Western and Asian choices, including the tasty Burmese Mohinga and other soupy noodles. Although, I felt the absence of the crunchy crackers in the Mohinga was a bit of let down. The location of the Chatrium just North of the Kandawgyi Lake is in a rather remote part of town as, unlike the Traders or the Park Royal, there is no shop or cafe outside the hotel for one to just pop over. You have to take a taxi to take you to other areas of Yangon if you want to shop, sight see or just to get a bite. The pros to this is, of course that there is no busy traffic or throngs of pedestrians around the hotel, which actually lends it an air of privacy and peacefulness.

Having stayed in the Chatrium for several months now, I would like to underline just how professional, helpful and friendly all of the staff of the hotel have always been. Whether in reception, in the Emporium, or in the 9th floor reception and club lounge, I've always been made to feel both comfortable and welcome

And a special word of praise is deserved for Moon's Rum Sour - a recipe to be treasured !

We just return from a 5 nights stay in this 5 star rating hotel and she does carry the status well. The welcome service upon entering the hotel has set a good impression, from serving towel, drinks till personalized check-in service. We were most pleased by the Chinese restaurant, Tiger Hill and Emporia Restaurant service staff, whom went the extra mile in remembering our daily eating habits and always smiling. The rooms are good size with clean and well maintained interior, where the housekeeping team never fail to stock up the amenities in the room. The entire hotel staff greets you with a smile making you feel welcome. The food is good and reasonably priced. The pool and gym facility are also great. The only thing which hopefully when the hotel industry in Myanmar gets more competitive, would be the room rate. Other than that, we would return again should we visit Yangon again. Keep up the good work.
