Perched on the banks of the Yangon river in Myanmar is the recently-opened Yangon Excelsior.
Housed within a 19th-century colonial building that once was the general headquarters of the Steel Brothers Company, the renovated boutique hotel now offers 74 luxurious rooms and suites. Rooms vary from 30m2 to 65m2 in size, and are split into four categories. Regardless of category, rooms come furnished with mod-cons such as a 46-inch LCD flatscreen TV, safe, mini bar, and complimentary Wi-Fi.
The Executive Floor features 16 rooms and an Executive Lounge. Other on-site amenities include a gym, spa, and two meeting rooms.
There are also two F&B venues: The Newsroom coffee bar is open from 06.30 to 23.30 and serves up a range of pastries, sandwiches and salads; and The all-day dining Steel Brothers Wine & Grill.
Landmarks within walking distance of the property include the 2,000-year-old Sule Pagoda, the Maha Bandula Park, and the city hall building
