I had a great experience at this hotel. It is situated right on beautiful Kandawgyi Lake with nice gardens and pool. The rooms have an exceptional view of the lake. High recommended and you can get great deals over the Internet.

Hotel is good. On the shore of a lake. One side to the lake , other - to Shwedagon , it`s so beauty at night ! If you place on your room table or window-skill banana , very soon you can see squirrel , eating your refreshments.

Directions: Shore of Kandawgyi Lake

Burma's best lakeside resort

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 1, 2004

Just great.
Service is prompt and stewards and stewardesses are just too polite.
Wooden flooring without carpets.

Unique Quality: One can get a great massage-- mix of Myanmarese and Thai or anyone separately after a leg breaking walking tour of Shwedagon.
Pool is three staged and has small flowers from the surrounding trees occassionally dotting the water.
The pool overlooks the lake and has a great view.

Directions: Downtown area and walking distance

Comfort at the Lakeside

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 12, 2003

Arriving in Yangon after spending a night in dull Singapore ( in transit from Siem Reap, eventhough we could have easily flown Siem Reap to Bangkok to Yangon without transiting in Bangkok.. next time), it was a welcome relief to spend the night at the Kandogyi palace Hotel situation right at the banks of the Lake, a few km north of the Bogyoke Market.
Architecturally pleasing, Burmese style. The staff was very attentive and efficient.

Unique Quality: Tranquil. Away from the noise of the city. Lakeside. Comfortable room. Price of about 50 usd very reasonable for this sort of accomodation

The Best 5 Star in Asia

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 11, 2003

This is surely the best 5 Star hotel in Asia, especially if you dislike the inhumanity of the usual hotel chains. It is built in traditional Burmese and English colonial style on the banks of the Royal Lake. The garden is a excellent maze of tropical plants and palm trees hiding winding foot paths.

There is no better place to sprawl in a Rattan Chair with a gin&tonic and read Maugham and Orwell.

Be sure to reserve in advance, outside of Rangoon, as the 'walk-in' price is twice as much.

Unique Quality: A classic atmosphere without excessive decoration.
Excellent French restaurant
Spacious rooms built with tropical hardwood
A gracious and helpful staff
Close to the Shwedagon Pagoda and Ministry of Defense

Directions: On the Royal Lake
