This marvellous refuge from the hustle and bustle of the streets of Yangon dishes out mega large suites, all the amenities and more. A room concierge per floor, tropical fruit and treats each evening, the Sarkie brothers' sister hotel to the E&O in Penang, has been restored to its glory days and, with the refurbishment, has exceeded what was a...

I was back in Yangon late last year for a business trip and stayed at the Strand and really loved it. I've passed through Yangon many times over the past 15 years and always enjoyed stopping by the bar at the Strand for a drink. But staying at the special property was a real treat and I'd say it's definitely...

During a brief overnight stay arriving at night we were greeted by the manager who also escorted us to the room and introduced the floor butler who would take care of anything we required. We were offered supper in our beautifully restored spacious colonial room with all the mod cons. It was suggested our breakfast be delivered to the room...

We came here to check out one of the more upscale bars in Yangon. The vibe is cool and the service was so great. The drinks are surprising very well priced. Great pool table out the back and amazing photos of historic Yangon to check out.

A beautiful building, nicely restored, but we had clunky service both nights we stayed there. The airport pick-up didn't arrive, our room wasn't ready, so changed to a noisy room above the bar, and the breakfast service was just appalling. A grand hotel that would benefit from some competent management.

They have a whole book to cover the hotel's long history. Mark Murraybrown (Ops Manager) was a charming host during our 4 day stay. The Strand road is very busy by day and the river view is gone at ground/street level. There is no swimming pool nor rear garden, yet... So after being closed for most of 2016 the interior...

We had high expectations from this hotel and it mostly didn't disappoint. The hotel has a very grand appeal to it and the rooms, lobby, everything about it just had a fantastic colonial appearance. It made you feel special just by being here. We stayed 3 nights and they weren't without their issues. Firstly our door didn't lock upon closing...

A super swish hotel where service and attention to detail is second to none. Situated near the port, the hotel is a 3 floor colonial style building built in 1902 and recently renovated to a very high standard. High ceilinged colonial luxury updated by extremely tasteful contemporary interiors, the hotel has been host to many famous visitors like Rudyard Kipling,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Strand Yangon closed on 1 May until November 2016 to undergo a complete facelift that will return the award-winning heritage hotel to its former glory. Constructed in 1901 in a classic colonial style, the hotel will retain its heritage architectural details, such as marble and teak wood flooring, ceiling fans, chandeliers, lacquer wood furniture, Burmese antiques, and signature service elements, while being given a complete upgrade and contemporary twist through a refreshed colour palette and subtle decorative details. The interiors of all the hotel's 31 suites will be redecorated in keeping with the Strand's legendary style and elegance, while at the same time updated with the latest technology, including new air conditioning, sound and communications systems. The Strand is famous around the world for its flawless, personalised service and suites will continue to be attended by the hotel's team of highly trained butlers. Once "The finest hostelry East of Suez", we are very eager to reveal the new Strand and bring it back to its former glory. Please continue visiting us for updates and bookings. ... more   less
