We stayed here for two nights as part of a tour. Our room was comfortable with good air conditioning and comfy beds. Pool was good size and refreshing. Morning breakfasts were hearty with varied foods. I would return if ever in the area.

This was the fourth hotel I have tried in Yangon. I did not actually stay for a full night but I needed a place to base myself during an after noon while waiting for a very early morning flight. The room I was given was very well appointed with a view of Shwedagon Pagoda. I used the restaurant twice and...

A real piece of luxury and history in a really lovely location in Yangon. The staff are so friendly and helpful too and the choice on offer for dining is great. The beds are some of the most comfortable I have ever slept in and the pool is great too in the heat. It is only a short walk to...

We spent one day in this hotel and unfortunately it didn't meet our expectations. Rooms are not clean, we had to change it because it smelled like ''humid'', once changed same story. Restaurants are awful, staff doesn't speak English properly. We had lots of troubles in communicating with them. Overall I think that beside the beautiful location by the lake,...

I started to travel in and out of Yangon for business and leisure since 2012. Price of hotels started so high with not so good service. Now, services improve increasingly, more pleasant and reasonable. Anyhow, my recent experience at The Kandawgyi Palace Hotel was the most pleasant experience one. Nice clean room, comfy bed, wonderful service and the best breakfast...

This hotel is huge and right by the lake, a bit isolated. It's big and has some nice spaces to discover. It's a bit old style but services are good and breakfast was good. They have several restaurants, incl. a Japanese one. Not super functional overall but ok. We didn't really enjoyed the wedding party that was taking place during...

“Do not accept a room on the 5th floor, as part of this floor is not accessible via the lift and stairs are required from the 4th floor”

“Rooms at the lower level have terraces leading to the lake. Some rooms on the higher levels permit you to see Schweadgon.”

“Ask for a quiet room - that might mean you'll be on a higher floor. The rooms on the water catch all the sound coming from across the lake.”
