For those looking for a smart hotel in the centre of Yangon, Sule Shangri-La Yangon is a good choice; the hotel is conveniently located right by Aung San Market and just a five-minute walk from the Sule Pagoda.
Of the 334 rooms and suites, we recommend securing a room on the higher floors for the best city views and less street noise. The accommodation features quick and complimentary Wi-Fi access, full-size bathtubs, and satellite TV. The suites have living rooms, rainforest showers, and guests also get complimentary access to the Club Lounge.
International food is on offer at the casual Café Sule, while the restaurant Summer Palace serves Cantonese cuisine. The Gallery Bar has a cozy pub vibe, in which to enjoy an evening drink, and high tea is laid on between 2.30pm and 5.30pm in the elegant Peacock Lounge.
An outdoor swimming pool, Jacuzzi, sauna, steam room, and beauty centre provide ample opportunities for unwinding in the hotel, while the fitness room will mean gym bunnies won’t have to forego their morning workouts.
