Stayed 3 nights here while in Yangon for a conference. The hotel is all decorated for Christmas and lighted up at night. A modern hotel that is no different from any other hotels of similar class in Asia. Due to the fact that a bomb went off a while ago in the nearby Traders Hotel, bags are checked and everyone is scanned upon entering the hotel
The rooms are modern. They have wooden floor and there is a big carpet over the bed area. A simple and elegant room. Do not expect 5 star room because of the high price you pay. It is a 4 star hotel. The high price is due to the limited supply of international standard hotel in Yangon following the opening up of Myanmar. Price is a supply and demand determined thing here. If you compare the room to 4 star hotel rooms in another country, then it is no different from others. In fact, I think it is better then some other 4 star hotels in US or Europe. If because of the high price you pay, you expect a 5 star room, then you will be disappointed. The bathroom is showing signs of age, but it is nonetheless kept very clean. Frankly, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the room.
The breakfast buffet is served at the Chinese restaurant. The spread is very good. There is the usual international standard fare, local, Indian etc.
The spa is a little disappointing It is not par with Spa in Thailand or even Vietnam. The standard and quality of individual masseuse can be very different too. Like all other things catering to tourist in Yangon, it does not come cheap.
I have visited other hotels like Strand and Governor's Residence for meals and drinks during the trip. The Strand was disappointing. It had mosquitos hovering around at the bar. Governor's Residence is beautiful and gives a resort feel, but it is also a little out of the way. If I visit Yangon again, I will still choose to stay at Parkroyal. Somehow the clean modern look here appeal to me better in this city. I don't come to Yangon for a resort type vacation.
