In a country with a colonial history as rich as this, there is no better place to stay than a hotel that is a converted mansion. This small, 30-room property has a remarkable garden and is located in a quiet area of Yangon, not far from the Thai and Singapore Embassies. By taxi it is only about five minutes to the downtown area, and it is only about 15 minutes to the Schwedgon Pagoda. It is nice to go for a walk in the People’s Park with lots of local residents enjoying the lake view. The rooms are fairly large, and the bathrooms are huge. The high ceilings echo the history of the property as a colonial mansion.
