The room we were having was beautiful and very comfortable. The service was impeccable. Very well trained staff who try to help whenever you need something. The only negatives I have was that there was...

Not only is the service top-notched, but the architecture of this hotel really contains so much culture and history. The staff is so attentive and friendly, and very thoughtful too! Location is great as well. Really enjoyed all the personally touches in the room.

We were recently in Yangon and stayed at The Strand. Everything was excellent. The hotel is not that big, so members of the staff and management get to know you a bit. The bar is fun; great atmosphere and relaxing. Breakfasts were great and unhurried. We ate most of other meals out, so little feedback there. We would stay at...

Such a grand hotel to be found in beautiful burma. Travelers will be impressed with all this lovely hotel has to offer, treat yourself to high tea or just sit in the foyer and listen to the lovely music. This hotel also spoils the casual visitor

We had a lovely visit to the Strand and received a warm welcome from the staff even though, secretly, we were tourists looking for a glimpse inside this famous hotel. My Dad was here in 1942 as the Japanese invaded and he wanted me to see if the bar was still in place. Well it was magnificent and we had...

An unbelievable experience staying in a place that history seems to whisper out of its walls. The bar, with its old wood counter and colonial atmosphere, is a lovely place to meet people from all walks of life who were as seduced by the romance of old days. My room was exceptional and the service unparalleled. Not sure if the...

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful stay at the Strand. We had the benefit of wonderful butler service which enhanced our stay. Our suite was spacious, the meal at the new Strand restaurant was excellent and the live music in the lobby was delightful. The English ability of some of the staff could have been better, but that didn't...

I spent three nights at the Strand on my recent visit to Myanmar and could happily have stayed forever. It is very conveniently located in the downtown area and the Sule Pagoda is within walking distance as are many of the old colonial buildings and some very colourful markets, temples and general Myanmar street life. My room was very large...

At every step of our visit to The Strand, we were treated with genuine care by The Strand's staff. We stayed there for a few days before and after New Years and celebrated the New Year's Eve there. The management are friendly, the staff genuinely care, and the building is beyond beautiful. The recent restoration is tasteful and measured. The...

We stayed for 3 nights just before xmas and had a truly wonderful stay at this absolutely beautiful hotel. It is small enough to feel quite personal and the service is genuinely 1st class. Our room ( a junior suite ) was huge and with a bed to match. Breakfast ( a la carte ) was delicious if slightly slow....

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
