Chatrium Royal Lake Yangon Hotel: Good hotel with slight hiccups.

The Chatrium Royal Lake Yangon Hotel is at a great location. Right on the shore of the Kandawgyi Lake and not too far from the Shwedagon Pagoda – a 10 minute drive sans traffic.

My stay at the hotel was not perfect, but very good provided that it is in Yangon. Some complaints:

1) The hotel is very popular – not just for its rooms but also for hosting functions. For the 3 nights I stayed at the hotel, there was a “thankful party” of sorts at the poolside, a day full of weddings and a conference. The music was loud and can be clearly heard from my Pagoda-view room on a relatively high floor. Either sound insulation was poor or the music was too loud. Fortunately on all nights music stopped around 10pm, so wasn’t too much of a bother.

2) The bed was too soft – as in the mattress was old and the middle is sagging. The room had nice, new flat screen TV with thin bezel – I’d rather they get new mattress instead.

Chatrium Royal Lake Yangon Bathroom

Other than that, the room was clean, modern and comfortable. The bathroom was clean. Even the bath seemed clean, although I did not use it. Interestingly the lift lobbies felt rather old – maybe the rooms have been renewed?

Should I go to Yangon again I wouldn’t hesitate to stay at Chatrium Royal Lake.
