“Unique Hotel in Myanmar”
Reviewed 28 September 2013

This is a surprisingly high quality hotel in Myanmar, with a great setting by the lake. The staff proved to be very helpful. It was just a short stay and we didn't use the restaurants, but the buffet breakfast was excellent.

We did not realize the hotel price in Burma would be such expensive. The service; however, was excellent and the food was very tasty. Our room was comfortable and the staff was very friendly with excellent English.

Very comfortable stay here. Good location for the city's main draw but not much else around the hotel, and v few eating options nearby. However taxis in Yangon are inexpensive and a variety of downtown restaurants are only a two dollar taxi ride away. Staff are extremely friendly, from the security guards in the car park to the front reception. The room we were initially allocated, on the ground floor was very noisy on the first night, but the reception staff moved us as efficiently as possible when we raised the issue the following morning. Breakfast buffet was ok with Asian and western options but a shame about the powdered juices.

Room Tip: Avoid ground floor, which tends to be favored by tour groups. Room doors are not well sound proofed...

We arrived at the Kandawgyi Palace Hotel , it is by the Royal Lake. A very grand lobby , and yes good air conditioning , after spending three weeks in Myanmar in the middle of September it was great. You have the choice of several restaurants Kandawgyi Palace. A nice gift shop in the lobby, with decent souvenirs. The rooms are very spacious with free WIFI and it works fast ! I Love Myanmar and Kandawgye Palace Hotel.

We only had one night here on our way to Bagan, we were very impressed with the food for lunch.
The service was very good in all areas of this hotel, they even packed us a breakfast box as we were leaving at 4.30am so can't comment on the breakfast buffet
The view across to magnificent pagoda was breathtaking! We had a lake view room which was very comfortable but you can see the pagoda from the walkway to your room
Make sure you enjoy the boardwalk around the lake for a fee of USD2.00 really worth the effort
The spa from fully booked as there was a convention in the hotel so they happily booked a foot reflexology at the nearby Chatrium hotel spa. This hotel looked nice as well
The kandawgyi hotel building is really impressive!

Room Tip: Overlooking the Pagoda if you can
