Finding a reasonably priced hotel with great service, amenities and location can be a bit of a challenge in Yangon. Fortunately the Sule Shangri-La offers all of these and more. This classic hotel recently underwent a major rebranding which saw it transformed from a Traders property into a Shangri-La. With the name change came the kinds of service upgrades and quality assurance that this international brand is famous for.
The hotel is the perfect launch pad for discovering downtown Yangon. As the name suggests, it’s only a few blocks from Sule Pagoda, so walking out the front door and exploring the city by foot is an easy option. Guests will also enjoy a number of on-site amenities such as a top-notch gym, an outdoor pool, several cafes and restaurants and my personal favorite the leather and wood-furnished Gallery Bar. If you’re in the mood to treat yourself, book a room on one of the Club Floors and gain access to the Club Lounge which offers panoramic views of the city and serves up all day snacks and coffee as well as free happy hour alcoholic beverages.
