Hotels I Recommend in Yangon

These are my favourite hotels in Yangon by category, from 5 stars to 2 stars.

Yes, I have gone through ALL the hotel in agoda website and chosen my favourite ones for you. I haven’t been to all of them but I have done this selection based on my own experience in hotels in Myanmar, knowledge of every city, hotel description, reviews from other guests and recommendations from friends who have stayed in some of them. Please click on the hotel name or picture for more details, pictures and check availability.

I have chosen to partnership with agoda since it’s the hotel booking website that I personally always use when I travel in Asia. I’ve always been very happy with their service and their amazing price.
