This hotel was recommended to me by a friend who lived in Myanmar with his family for six months.... he and his wife spent their anniversary at the Kandawgyi. It did not disappoint. We had originally been booked at a place that looked like any large western hotel and were pleased to have made the change to a place that felt more like Myanmar.
The rooms were beautiful - good products in the bathroom - including toothbrushes.... We had a view of the lake which was gorgeous - the hotel has a pool - which we did not take advantage of as it was raining while we were there - but it was right on the lake and was pretty.
We had room service the first night as we were exhausted - food was fine - not super exciting, but edible and not too expensive. The drinks were quite expensive ($4 for a soda - which for Myanmar was a king's ransom)
You can change money at the hotel - but the hours are limited and are not posted - so ask - because we didn't, and were there over a weekend and were unable to change money. There is an ATM in the hotel lobby, but it was "finished" while we were there :-) ATMs are still new to Myanmar - bring cash (dollars or euros) with you rather than count on ATMs.
We left Yangon for nearly a week and were able to leave our bags at the Kandawgyi so we didn't have to drag everything with us. Would recommend the hotel
