“Do not miss the opportunity if you are in Yangon!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

What a fantastic way to end our Far East experience at the The Strand. Right from the moment you arrive via the sumptuous splendour created in the hotel lobby through to the luxury of your room, the attention to detail just at check-in lets you know that you are in for a memorable experience. As for the staff - The charisma, charm and warmth of this hotel starts right at the top with Mark the Operation Manager through to your butler and the rest of the team - every person makes you feel their total goal is to ensure you have the most perfect of stays. With great food (restaurant/room service) as an added bonus, you have trouble leaving the hotel to explore the remainder of the city.

Room Tip: Amazingly no noise from any other room due to a good old solid structure that has been undisturbed i...

A major renovation was finished in November 2016 so the hotel is in prime condition. Beautifully redecorated from the main lobby to the suites. We arrived around midnight after 27 hours in transit and were warmly welcomed. Everything is five star plus from the beds, linens, towels, choice of pillows and every evening there are petit fours left on the bed. Suffering from jet lag it was great to our the floor butler bring tea whenever needed.
We have travelled to many five star hotels and our stay at The Strand is memorable and worth the splurge.
The location is by the river and a short walk to the old colonial centre.
The Strand Cafe served à la carte breakfast everyday with a good selection of Asian and Western choices.
It feels like a small high end boutique hotel with only 30 rooms: the Manager was particularly attentive and friendly and appeared to be on site most of the time. If you want the best, this is the place to stay in Yangon.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are suites. There are only three floors so top floor is best with a river view if p...

We stayed here twice before but since then it has been very elegantly refurbished. The rooms are still the same spacious size, but they have been furnished beautifully. Plenty of sitting space and everything was just right. The bathrooms were just what one wanted. The public areas have likewise been refurbished and are entirely in keeping with what one would expect from a modern hotel with a long history. The staff are excellent, very attentive and the butler service in the rooms is first rate. Highly recommended

if you go try the Strand for food and its expensive, but what you get is superior quality, we had the beef burgers and the burgers themselves were absolutely brilliant.

Simply the best. Service was second to none.

Excellent all round, give it a whirl, nothing to bad here, nice.

We stayed here during the New Year holiday and also took the Strand Cruise. The hotel was newly renovated but the air conditioning in our room wasn't working properly. It took them two days to fix it but they staff more than made up for it and despite that I would stay at the Strand again.
Its an elegant classic colonial property located near most of Yangon's places of interest, with spacious rooms, an excellent restaurant, and gracious, accommodating staff. They referred us to great restaurants, out of the way art galleries, antique shops, made all the arrangements.
If it weren't for the air conditioning problem and the lack of a gym, I would've given them 5 stars.

Room Tip: Ask about the air conditioning.
