The prestigious 5-star Yangon Excelsior, a luxurious hotel in Yangon’s downtown, has been painstakingly refurbished from a Heritage Building - the Headquarters of the Steel Brothers Limited Company, built in early 19th century. It evokes a bold and elegant tone as it draws on old merchant trading atmosphere in a polished, modern setting. With 74 sleek, upscale rooms, one Executive Floor with 16 rooms and an Executive Lounge, one Cafe-Deli-Bar called the Newsroom, a Wine & Grill restaurant, gym and spa, and two meeting rooms, the Yangon Excelsior Hotel is the perfect base from which to explore the city. Centrally located for the ease and convenience of both the curious leisure traveler and busy business visitor, the hotel is a gentle reminder of Myanmar’s rich history while providing all the contemporary comforts for an unforgettable stay.

We stayed at the Yangon Excelsior for three nights, the hotel itself is a small boutique hotel in a great location. It’s a relatively new hotel having only been open for about 18months. The hotel has been decorated beautifully and has a modern but old world charm.
We enjoyed our breakfast each day, the staff remembered our preferences for coffee and drinks for the days we were there, I have a Pomelo and cucumber obsession and would go early to the markets in the morning at 630am, to buy these items and the staff would prepare them for me for breakfast, no request was too hard. Thanks Je for your advice on how to pick the best Pomelo, obviously I have a lot to still learn haha.
The staff at the Yangon Excelsior go out of their way to make you feel welcome and to help you with any requests, they always had a smile and were quick to offer assistance to questions or requests.
After going out in 36 heat, we loved coming back to our room for a rest during the heat of the day before heading out again, the location of the Yangon Excelsior was central to walking and exploring around Yangon. We enjoyed the mini bar in our room with the cold drinks and the glass water bottles in our room with water. The soaps and shampoos had a lovely scent, and the shower was the perfect water pressure. Our bed was large and comfortable and the room was very clean, the high ceilings gave the room and light and airy feeling.
If you love street food, try the pickled ginger dish, and the green tea salad from the street cart at the end of the road where the hotel is located (Bo Son Pat Road) turn left out of the hotel, walk to the end of the street, on the right hand side will be a serious of street carts, chose the second cart (should be under a blue sign all in Burmese and next to that is a sign that states MPT, delicious!
Thank you Yangon excelsior for making our stay in Rangoon so enjoyable, we highly recommend staying here.

We just enjoyed 5 nights in the beautifully decorated Yangon Excelsior Hotel! It was quiet, comfortable bed linens, towels to be able to rest from jet lag. Because our days were full and temperatures hot and traffic delays, we enjoyed most of our evening meals in the exceptional restaurants at the hotel! We loved the lamb chops and braised lamb shank at Steel Brothers Restaurant. The News Room was great for soups and loved the traditional fermented tea leaf salad. We left behind a fancy treasured water bottle and housekeeping found it for us! Loved the espresso in room and my husband loved the free beer in room! Breakfasts were a treat with service a la carte menu fancy eggs benedict with a drizzle of pesto ! Lovely! Arparc our breakfast waiter, Nicholas evenings...Kudos to front desk staff and all the waiters! Not enough good can be said!
We will definitely return!

The hotel occupies a very compact site on a colorful side street. The ground floor has large dining rooms and the lobby; the remaining floors are for the rooms and a small spa/fitness center due to the tight footprint of the old building. One strong feature is the extra ceiling height, making most spaces elegant, especially in the room. Excellent color scheme for the interior, as well as a very comfortable bed. The only minus point is the library on the ground floor, which doesn't really offer real books for reading. More like props. Excellent staff and service.

We stayed for one night to celebrate new year. The decor and service in this hotel is impeccable. The service staff took great care of us and is it very easy to communicate with them. We decided to dine with them for the new year eve buffet. The buffet selection is small but the food tastes great.

This beautiful and swanky hotel could easily be in NYC where it would be $600/night. It’s truly 5 star as is the staff. They can’t do enough for you and speak perfect English. I stayed 3 nights and ended up eating dinner here every night because I was too tired to venture back out after long days of sight seeing. Food was great. Breakfast was the best of my trip. The linens on the bed were nicer than those I have at home. My only (small) complaint would be that I found the bed too hard *but* that was the case everywhere during my two week trip in Laos and Myanmar. Think it’s just their norm and personal preference. You can’t go wrong here- it deserves it’s accolades.

I had the privilege to spend two nights living like a king at the charming new Yangon Excelsior Hotel. What an incredible hotel. Located in an old colonial building constructed around 1930, this hotel made me feel super special the moment I stood in front of its beautiful entrance.

Decorated to reflect the rich history of the building, the rooms are stylish and modern, with a flair of history - including an old typewriter with a personal welcome letter from Mr. Philippe Arnaud, the friendly General Manager, as well as old-style telephones. The bathroom and beds are heavenly.

Thanks to Philippe and the staff who made my stay so very special. Indeed THE place to stay when you are visiting Yangon!

What a fabulous hotel with amazingly helpful and smiley 😊 staff. They were so helpful from start to finish and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was delicious 😋 and they got to know my favourites. Lunch was delicious and the mocktails mouth watering It was a wonderful welcome to Yangon as a single female traveller. The building itself was immaculate and my huge bedroom full of luxury and good taste. Goes down as a favourite for me 💙💖🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 🌟Thanks you

Yangon Excelsior has just reopened on 1 December 2023, I chanced upon their Facebook page and booked directly with them. Their reopening packages are incredibly affordable for the standard it provides.

A true gem in Yangon, tucked away in a busy alley way near Sule Pagoda, easily assessable to major tourist attractions.

This boutique hotel is impeccable. Beautifully and tastefully decorated; old world charm meets modern amenities.

The room is spacious, high ceiling, warm, and soothing tone and sufficiently lit. Everything was carefully considered, the bed and linen were comfortable; the shower pressure was superb!

High compliments for the attentive service all round. Mr Zaw, the manager, was extremely helpful and always around greeting guests at the front desk.

I looked forward to breakfast every morning, handsome choices (traditional noodle soup was excellent) and good quality food.

I stayed in 3 different hotels in Yangon during the trip and Yangon Excelsior tops the list.

Having travelled to almost 90 countries, this is one of the best hotels I’ve stayed in. The staff were amazingly attentive, the rooms of the highest standards of cleanliness and amenities. Breakfast was a la carte and ordered / cooked to our needs. It also had a great restaurant with a menu to suit all dietary requirements.
