For those who just want a good old fashioned international hotel in Yangon which ticks all the comfort boxes, then the Sule Shangri-La is your answer. It may have 22 stories and many rooms, but they have actually retained a Burmese soul to the place, and is by far the best international style hotel in Yangon in terms of the choice of facilities and overall quality. You are right in the heart of Yangon, right next to the Sule Pagoda and Scott’s Market, and a short drive to Shewdagon Pagoda.
The 479 rooms are all very much up to international standards, yet feature work by local artists. Naturally you will find all the amenities, even ironing boards and hair dryers that are almost aways absent from smaller boutique hotels in the city. The standard Deluxe Rooms all have views over the city, pagoda or river with the Executive Rooms offering better views from higher floors. All rooms have bathtubs with fitted showers. There are four classes of suites, all getting larger and with options to connect to standard rooms should you be travelling on a family holiday.
There are four restaurants and bars, including the speciality Chinese Summer Palace restaurant. Add to that a fitness centre, spa, beauty centre and large swimming pool and you have all the facilities you would want from a modern international hotel.
