In the inner city of Yangon, there is this charming historical touch colonial building- that was the Headquarters of a British Trading company- now turned to a beautiful classic world-class hotel - Yangon Excelsior Hotel. The interior design here is artful and exquisite using symbols from that era. It is impeccably stylized in the best of both modern and vintage with a lovely eye for detail, and the interior here is full of life in the most tasteful way.
From the moment you step into the colonial-design lobby, it gives you the feel of entering into another world of luxury back in time. With generous ceiling heights everywhere, the designer has ‘framed’ many of the features in marble arches and black metal framing - there are vintage touches everywhere that tell a story of an age of empire, colonial powers, and vast wealth. The color palette is rich and sophisticated, and the overall experience is of luxurious comfort in a delightful boutique hotel. They have crafted British colonial feel and the renovations of the ancient building to perfection! The hotel is set on a quiet side street so, it gives a gentle touch in noisy Yangon, and yet it is walking distance to many conveniently accessible attractions.
There are 74 rooms in this hotel and comes in a choice of Superior Rooms, Junior Suite, Deluxe Room, Superior Executive, Deluxe Executive, and Loft. All the rooms are charming, spick, and span, and with the elegant decoration. The rooms are also with their generous proportions and high ceilings, with huge picture window, the most comfortable bed, beautiful fluffy towels and crisp linen and duvet cover that will send you off to deep sleep. Even the private bathroom is massive, feels luxurious and modern with all the bathroom amenities. The hotel offers many top facilities that you could take advantage of like BBQ facilities, spa, fitness center, etc. and the breakfast here is also at "another level" with a la carte dishes prepared with the freshest ingredients. Or there are two restaurants available on the property to try out. One is more of a cafe-style and the proper one serving around the clock meals. The restaurants are fantastic, especially with some local food. Also, the bar is a place to relax with a complete list of fine spirits and wine, some of them very rare, and the cocktail list is adapted to the hotel with refreshing creations and classics.
