The hotel itself is not special but it is clean and good value at $50 per night. I’m writing this sat in the bar/restaurant on the 9th floor with great views and a spectacular sunset. I’ve met a few expats who come here for drinks (a draught beer is $2). I’ve not had it yet but the buffet breakfast is MMK 7,000 so €4.5 and the bar menu is extensive and fine if you can’t be bothered to venture out

Summary - if you want to be central but not right in the Chinatown area this is a good base.

I stayed at the Esperado Lakeview hotel for 4 nights. The room i booked was the city view. It was a very spacious and clean room. Our check-in was almost instantaneous. When we arrived at the hotel the room was ready with a cot and an extra bed placed in the room. The staff was very courteous and welcoming. The breakfast spread was also very good with a mix of local and continental options. The location of the hotel is perfect, away from the noisy downtown but well within reach. The amenities offered are in par with other hotels of its class.
The view of Karweik Lake from the rooftop restaurant is breathtaking.
P.s. Be careful, i had to pay $5 for a berry stain on their bedsheet!
No complaints. Definitely recommend this hotel.

Location is superb. It is located in front of the Kandawgyi Lake. The view is unbeatable. Rooms are big and clean. Room service was provided everyday. They have a rooftop bar and a restaurant in the lobby area. Foods quality was good and prices are fair. Staffs are nice but need more training. No business center, no airport transfer and no fax machine available. But, not a deal breaker though. I would not hesitate to stay there again.

We stayed here in December 2019 .We had booked an expensive lake view room corner room .Corner room which as described on portal was a joke as the open window led to another building .So no meaning of corner room.Other rooms had balcony .this was without balcony despite paying so much money.The hotel reception staff was not welcoming at all in fact they don’t know the meaning of hospitality.
So apart from good view there is nothing good about this hotel.
Will never visit again

They said Luxury 4 stars hotel tho but the service is horrible. We stayed 1 week here nothing is Ok. Reception can't help anything .Room Lighting is poor. Wifi is too weak, the basin water didn't flow, the restroom smell stink every time, do not have mini bar,no free coffee, tea or anything, TV have no channel. Also I can hear everything from our next room.
After all, this Hotel is just a room with bed. Nothing Comfortable and feel relaxed here.

The hotel has a great view over the Kandawgyi Lake with the great Shwedagon pagoda on the other side. Its location is a bit off the china town and little india, where you can find a lot of restaurants. Anyway you can ever walk there (takes some time, but is quite safe) or take a taxi, which the hotel staff will call for you if you like.
Just insist on fixing a price for the taxi beforehand (tell the hotel staff, they tell the driver).
The room itself is spacious and quiet as this one was also on a higher floor.
WiFi is also working good as there is a dedicated router in every room near the telephone.
There is a sky bar at the top of the hotel, which serves breakfast as well as drinks at night. It as an amazing view over the lake and the pagoda, which is illuminated at night. Every breakfast reminded me of the great place I was staying at :-)

Only one downside was there: the water of the shower was cold for quite some time. I called the hotel staff and they told me to just keep it running, which I did. And finally after 10 or 15 minutes it started to get a little bit warmer, but still not really hot.
It is warm in Yangon and also I set my rooms ac to a warmer temperature - nevertheless I just won't get used to showering too cold ;-)

I have been staying in this hotel for 3 weeks. It provides a free WiFi at the lobby, restaurant as well as inside the room. The staffs are superb and friendly. They have an excellent attitude and are indeed very helpful. For example, Mr Myo Zaw Oo has always go extra mile to stop a Taxi and bargain a good price for me to travel around if my driver is not available. By large, you most probably need to confirm and agree with the fare before you board the Taxi. It is modern hotel and the room hygiene is at the highest standard. Water is clean which added another advantage for this hotel.

The Goya Restaurant at the Level 9 offers a magnificent view on Lake Kandawgyi. The foods are great and many varieties to choose from. No worry that they will change the menu on daily basis to prevent you bored with the foods. It also provides buffet lunch and dinner with an affordable price.

Overall, I love to stay in this hotel and will continue to stay in many weeks to come. I feel the warmth of these great staff and make me feel like home. It looks like a sweet homestay for myself. In my opinion, this hotel is like a gem in the heart of Yangon!

Poor Hotel. Do not take anything below the 5th floor as you will only see the trees. Rooms were dated and small, but clean. AC went out during the night for over 1 hr. and room became extremely hot and humid. Had to go to the reception at 1 AM to let them know. Poor quality of food for Breakfast and not great either for dinner.Would NOT recommend this place to anyone!!

Response from Nero K, Manager at Esperado Lake View Hotel
Responded 17 Oct 2016
Thank you for staying at our Esperado Lake View Hotel. I have read and followed up on your feedback, I would like to point out some information i have recovered from my team. Firstly, there was no reports at the reception around 1 AM about electricity going off for an hour. Our hotel has generator that operates within 5 mins of a power outage. Secondly, there are 250+ comments on TripAdvisor about our hotel and not a single comment has complained about the bad quality of our breakfast. We pride ourselves in offering far superior breakfast than all 4 star hotels and is almost equivalent to that of 5 star hotels in Yangon. Hence, i find it strange that all our strengths seem to have had the opposite effect on you. I would like to know more in detail about the difficulties you had so please send a message to info@hotelesperado.com and the Esperado team will get in touch with you. Thank you for dropping us a comment on TripAdvisor and we look to welcome you again. Thanks & Regards, Nero

My name is ChungChin, coming from Taiwan. I have stayed in this hotel for 14 days for business. During being here, I am really happy to meet with one of the best personnel in Esperado Hotel, and his name is Mr. Myozawoo.

It's him to help us arrange the trustworthy taxi driver, and also it's him to solve
a diverse of problems for us every day. But most important thing is that he was born to be a smiled people.

whenever seeing him, he always puts smiling on his face even he was tired after having a night shift.

I think he is one of the person who deserves the highly recommendation in Esperado Hotel. Thank Esperado Hotel to bring such good experiences to me, I will come again to visit this hotel next time.

Stayed 3-nights in a Deluxe Twin Room. Was in Yangon on a business trip

Pros:
(1) Rooms were clean
Most basic requirement of any hotel. No issues here, rooms were cleaned properly. Though the housekeeping timing needs a bit of work. More on that in the next section. Photos of room attached

(2) Great Helpful Staff
The staff were a great bunch. Polite and they really try their utmost, though not all of them were proficient in English.

Forgot their names, but the Front Desk staff were really helpful. When you need to arrange a cab, the Front Desk are really helpful here. The make the arrangements for you and negotiate the proper pricing, even giving the cab driver directions on our behalf on 2 occasions and all. The duty manager even lent his belt to my colleague when my colleague's belt was damaged and we had to rush off to an important presentation.

Not forgetting the very efficient and polite staff at Goya Restaurant (their onsite restaurant)

(3) Fast and free Wi-Fi Internet
Fastest internet I have yet experienced in a hotel or office in Yangon. Could stream Youtube videos with limited lag. It is free and you can log in multiple devices. Essential to any traveler in this day and age

(4) Lovely view of Kandawgyi Lake / Park from Goya Restaurant

Goya Restaurant is their on-site restaurant on the 9th floor, breakfast is served there. One nice feature, it has a great panaromic view of Kandawgyi Lake / Park & Shwedagon Pagoda, if you dine alfresco you get to enjoy the view. Photo of view attached

(5) Located opposite of entrance to Kandawgyi Lake / Park

You are conveniently located opposite the entrance to Kandawgyi Lake / Park. It is a local attraction and also a really pleasant place for a morning or evening stroll/jog. On weekends there are couples and families enjoying themselves in the park. There is a small entrance fee to the park.

(6) Fair Rate
Our office managed to book each of the two rooms for SGD$99 (USD$75) before tax, which was a fair rate considering we booked just a day before arriving. And room rates in Yangon are not cheap. Rack rate starting as high as US$200 (before tax) at some of the higher end chains.

Cons:
(1) Room layout - Wardrobe blocks view of TV
A bit of a 1st World issue. The wardrobe is placed between the TV console and work desks. A bit of a bother if you are working at the desk and want to view the TV.

(2) House Keeping timing
So while house keeping does a great job keeping the place clean. Their timing was a bit inconsistent. The 2nd day we were there, they had not gotten to clean my room even though was nearly 4pm. Gave them a call they came up to do it, no fuss and they did a good job. 3rd day we were there, they came rather early at 11am. Was a bit inconsistent but no big deal really.

Debatable:
(1) Hotel's Location
Firstly the only major attraction near the hotel is Kandawgyi Lake / Park. It is also not near the Business of Government districts.

To be fair to the hotel and the more a reflection of the traffic and transport situation in Yangon. For a foreigner, taking the public transport is not advisable and most foreigners just take a cab (it cost between 2,000 Kyat to maximum 7,000 Kyat within Yangon, other than the airport). So in some sense it's location is not a big issue cause you would not be on public transport and cabs are plentiful at the hotel. And given the jams in Yangon these, you will get caught in a jam on the roads when getting from place to place regardless.

Conclusion:
Will definitely not mind staying here again if in Yangon. Pleasant hotel, good value and friendly staff. Nothing much else to ask for in a hotel stay

Response from Nero K, Manager at Esperado Lake View Hotel
Responded 11 Sept 2016
We would like to thank you very much about your detailed and constructive comments in your review. The design of the room indeed don’t allowed the view on the TV from the desk. But we believe it was design with this purpose in order to have two separate places well distinct each other. Our Housekeeping team is doing its best in order to have all rooms clean by 4pm. Sometimes it can be a challenge. But in general we are able to reach our target. Yes we can find easily a taxi in front of the hotel, and you can reach any main attractions for less than Ks5000. Which make a good location for either our Corporate business or leisure market. Thank you also for mentioning the quality/value ratio that the hotel has in comparaison with our competitors. Looking forward to welcoming you again at Esperado Lake View hotel. Best regards, Nero

Answer from Iubitule

Yes, this hotel is girl friendly. But the girl will have to leave her ID Card at the concierge desk like in Thailand for be able to join your room with you. Next morning, when the girl wants to leave the hotel, they will make a telephone call to your room to assure, that everythimg is okay. Then they will give back to the girl her ID Card. I appreciate this service very much. It is for our good feeling.
