I usually stay at Traders Hotel but decided this time to check out The ParkRoyal in Yangon which is situated a ten minute walk from the main thoroughfare and only five minutes from the Football Stadium and main railway station.
This is a good hotel, impressive lobby and good sized bedrooms even if a little worn nowadays. The bathroom was fine and functional with usual toiletries, combined bath and shower. My Double room had two double beds, smart polished flooring, old style tv but plenty of channels and amazingly WiFi which was free and worked well.
The breakfasts are good, buffet lunch and dinner were plentiful, there is a small lobby bar and a basement nightclub with terrific live girl band !
Good gym, table tennis room and spa, the outdoor pool was a reasonable size although unfortunately pigeons from the run down apartments opposite tend to us it as a watering hole !
My room on the 4th floor overlooked the pool and throughout the day one could constantly hear music playing, all day and every day, possibly from an outlet on the main road. However, the staff are efficient and charming and I would definitely use this hotel again.
I have been visiting Myanmar since 2006 and the changes are now evident, lots of developments in the city including new pavements (!), WiFi access and posters of The Lady for sale everywhere, the locals with whom I spoke are quietly optimistic for more real progress. Amusingly, last year everyone wanted dollars and yet now they prefer payment in Kyats !
