Petit Futé

Choose your hotel in Yangon ? (Myanmar - Burma)

With the increase of arrival in tourist, hotels prices in Myanmar have increased a lot, especially in Yangon where hotels prices have more than triple within the last 2 years.
You should not compare with what you can get in Thailand or elsewhere in Asia, prices range is from 20-25 USD (very rare) to 625 USD or more (Governor's).

Most former 2-3 stars hotel (use to be the main stream of cheap hotels) are now in the range of 50 to 120 USD. You can still find some guest houses around 25-30 USD but for that price you get something that should be in Thailand at 10 USD.
It seems that it will stay like this for the next coming two years.
Have a look at the new modern (not charming) hotels, they are also expensive but at least you get something brand new....

Governor's Residence (Ex Pansea)

Category : Luxe- 4****
Probably the most charming hotel in Myanmar or at least in Yangon. 2 hectares garden in the best quarter, a beautiful colony style house, a very good French restaurant. Some rooms have been renovated in 2007 and are in good condition, othes rooms seriously need a renovation. Choose it for the colonial charm, garden, and atmosphere.
Prices rise sharply for 2013-2014 seasons but it is always full....

Strand hotel

Category : Luxuxry - charm - Mythic hotel - Member of the Leadings Hotels of the World.
This is one of the most famous hotel is Asia, such as The Raffles in Singapore, the Oriental in Bagnkok and the Pennisula in Hong Kong. The hotel has been completely renovated and you will find again the old charm of the British period. Rooms are big and nicely decorated, the cuisine is really very very good, the spa very relaxing.
A new sale policy makes the hotel more competitive than it was, no more excuse to stay in this legendary hotel (member of the Leading Hotel of the World).
