Nice decoration. Friendly staff. Location good for who want to relax because the traffic is not to busy. Can sleep well at night. Cool aircond. But limited space for car park. Only can park 4 car.

    Wonderful staff, above and beyond”

    This is a characterful spot with a great manager in Shannon. She goes way above and beyond in helping with grab bookings, drop off at ATM and suggestions. The hotel is cute with decorated old minis, a fuzball table (which my son loved, but be careful a definite slope against yellow!) and character filled rooms with a loft bed. Location is just outside the buffer zone and not too bad a walk to the heritage area, passing various art work on the way. Also some nice cafes and restaurants (Sugar on Top, What the duck, Zen Xing) nearby. The only negative, and the owners acknowledge it, is the sound proofing is not great. The first night the noise from other guests was quite bad and a fitful night's sleep, however it was much better the second night.

    It's a lovely place to stay, it offers home like feel, great ambience, quaint atmosphere, very clean room, comfortable beds, free flow of hot drinks (24/7), friendly and smiling lady as a receptionist. Its located in a very strategic place, closer to restaurants (in walking distance) and also driving distance to Gurney road. Our room was upgraded to a bigger and more spacious room without any additional charge. We totally loved our stay in Rangoon and will definitely recommend it.

    Best stay ive stayed”

    Service is just like a stay in a 5 star hotel, no other places i could get such a great service and place to stay at this very low rate. Very highly recommended to all, especially to families. Location is also very convenient, both host and staff are super helpful and friendly, who went the extra mile to help my family. A recommendation to all travellers, you do not need to spend so much investing in a high end hotel, when you can find one like Rangoon Residence with equally immaculate room and service at a low rate. Big thumbs up to Rangoon Residence!

    Stayes for 2 night. We are family with a 3 year old and a 1 year old toddler. Kids were excited with the mini cooper mock up at the basement. Friendly and helpful receptionist cum manager who gave us quick brief on the nearby eateries. Great hawker centre at the end of jalan rangoon towards jalan macalister. Coal fire pizza. Nearest 7 eleven at the jalan burmah tune hotel. Its a walk up stair towards room, elderly person be careful. Great.

    Excellent space, with loft bed and balcony”

    We stayed in a balcony room. Our teenage son slept in the upstairs double, and us downstairs, so there was lots of space. Internet was great. Balcony a real plus. Chi-lee, the manager, was extra helpful. Clean, comfy beds. AND ONLY a short work to Komptar/Georgetown central, ie China town and Little India. A Giant supermarket across the road. Great price, and clean, with kettle and fridge in each room. We needed to get Australian Passport renewed and the Consulate is 2 min walk away! Amazing!. Thanks for having us. I totally recommend, and I will be back.

    we arrived really late at around 9pm+ on national day (after a prolonged drive) and the caretaker/owner patiently waited for our arrival and gave advice on eateries/options around the area. RR is situated just outside busy streets but well within walking distance to various selection of foods. This place is well maintained, clean with minimalist design. we loved the duplex with 2 king sized beds and a balcony.

    Wonderful small boutique hotel. ”

    The manager is wonderful, couldn't do any more to make my stay enjoyable. She drove me and two other guests to the coast to an Avatar like small park with trees lit up. Gave good advice and was very accommodating when I had an afternoon flight out. The room was a good size and very comfortable, a/c and a balcony and comfortable bed. It is in a relatively quiet street, but easy access to nearby supermarket, and many restaurants of all types and price. It isn't too far to the old city area where you can use the free bus service.

    The location is strategic near to many restaurants and hawker stalls. Owner is very friendly. However, we have to climb ladders to our room so I think it is not suitable for eldery people. The bathroom is quite small, we have to be careful not to drop anything.
