The Strand Hotel Yangon

Room Type: Superior, Deluxe

Descripton: This is a classic old school hotel with a large reception area, bar with dark wood and high ceilings and fans. you feel like you have stepped back in time to a British hotel. We stayed here at the beginning of our Myanmar trip and again at the end.

Old world charm
The lovely old Strand Hotel in Yangon is a charming old world hotel, with the dimly lit lobby, ceiling fans, plentiful helpful staff which all gives you a feeling of being in a Somerset Maugham novel. All the rooms are suites, very roomy, with bedroom, living area, dressing room and bathroom with double vanities. It’s a short walk tos the Monsoon restaurant which appeared to be popular with tourists and has good food and drinks. The only criticisism was a hopeless internet connection in their business centre. I thought it might just be Myanmar but another very cheap hotel in Yangon had excellent fast connection, This hotel is not cheap.


Built in 1901, The Strand is a Yangon heritage hotel without peer. It is a stately Victorian icon, beautifully renovated, with two wings centred on a lobby lounge with a black and white marble floor.
This Asian luxury resort offers large suites with lazily whirring ceiling fans, teak floors and luxurious bathrooms. For a really grand experience, there’s the spacious Strand Suite with its own verandah overlooking the river
