Summit Park View Hotel

Room Type: Superior, Deluxe, Junior Suite, Studio Suite, Executive Suite

Descripton: We stayed here for our first 2 nights in Myanmar. Location of the Hotel is good - there are some untidy parts of Yangon but this area is pretty good with some good restaurants nearby. Only 2500 kyats to get a taxi to go to the markets etc and a very short walk to the Pagoda.

A Good Hotel!

We stayed here for a few weeks in September, and overall it was a good hotel. The room is old with worn out carpet and bathroom. Besides these low points, it is clean. The service staff is very helpful and does speak English. Money exchange is right down the hall from the lobby. Breakfast has both local and Western food. The location is excellent, with great restaurants within a 5-10 min walk. Facing the hotel there is a wonderful Thai’s place just on the right hand side. Right across the street is also a local’s favorite. The gorgeous Shwedagon Pagoda, can be seen from the hotel window, is just a 15 min walk. We went there at 6am in the morning, and it was just magical. For 1500 Kt, you can go to Bogyoke Market, which is one of the best place to shop for souvenirs. The sales people are not aggressive like some other Asian’s country. The taxi are mostly old, but the drivers are the nicest ones that I have ever seen. One driver actually gave us 500 Kt back after he realized that our destination was closer than he originally thought it would be. (He had asked for 2000kt, and we had agreed to it.) Internet is now available in the room, but it is still extremely slow. With a speed that can be use for email and search engine , but not for downloading media. There is Internet in the business center that is a little faster, with $3/hr fee. However, there is complete shut down of the Internet a few times a week for hours at a time still. For the price that we paid, this was a good hotel, and we will stay here again next time.
