We had short stays (one night and two nights respectively) in this hotel during our visit to Myanmar in December 2016 and January 2017. The rooms were spacious and the bathrooms were large with a walk-in shower. The rooms did have a slight musty smell when we first entered, though this became less noticeable after a couple of hours. I...

The Kandawgyi Palace Hotel was clean and comfortable. The complimentary breakfast had a good variety. Our room, on the 5th floor, had a view of the Shwedegan in the distance - very cool! There was no fitness center, so we went running around Kandawgyi Lake. This was challenging with the uneven sidewalks and treacherous boardwalks. The pool is small and...

Worth five burmese stars - nice building with modern burmese/asian interior and connecting balconys, garden and pool area. Normal size room with a very comfortable bed. Fast internet. After a great breakfast we had a nice walk around the nextby lake and a view of Schwedagon in the back. Don't order the créme brullet.

Stayed for three nights whilst visiting all the usual sights in Rangoon. A joy to return after a hot, dusty, dirty day out to calm, cool and welcoming people. Staff lovely and room comfortable. Great view of lake, spacious room, tea making kettle and good bathroom with both shower and bath. Tasty breakfast starts the day well. Bed comfy. Shame...

We booked two nights here for $420 (USD), so would expect a reasonably high standard of accommodation, but unfortunately was left disappointed. Our room was a ground floor room 103, with a view of the rear garden. (I should clarify I also stayed at the nearby Esperado for 2 nights a few weeks beforehand, and had a larger, nicer room...

Seriously, a two night stay with one wedding one each night of our stay. This is a hotel which is clearly willing to put revenue over guest comfort. The problem the Kandawagi Palace hotel has with hosting weddings is that the venue is right next to the pool (so you feel rather put out with the wedding prep going on...

Lovely place to stay, staff are faultless to the extreme, beautiful location.Everything was delightful but it is very close to needing a refurbishment. We'd booked a room via Agoda that wasn't what we were offered and had to object twice to rooms offered before we had the room shown on the website. However the staff at all levels were superb...

This hotel is lavishly spread next to the Yangoon zoo and is an excellent place to stay in Yangon. We were booked in this hotel through our travel agency and we loved everything about this place. The rooms are huge with a lovely view of the lotus filled Kwandagyi lake. The bathrooms, although not huge, have ample space and provides...

Respect shangri-la (Yangon)it is very much better quality service even if there are some details not compliant with international luxury standard (service and quality of restaurant, furniture in the room). It has been a good experience, the hotel it is nice, near to shwedagon temple pagoda.

We had a nice, clean room with a terrace overlooking the smaller of the two lakes in Yangon. Within a short diistance you could walk the rugged boardwalk of the lake and also see the Shwedagon Pagoda which you must see at dusk. The breakfasts were delicious, and we ate dinner there and all were happy with their meal. A...
