PARKROYAL is a five-star hotel in the center of Yangon in Myanmar.
Conveniently located close to major tourist attractions, PARKROYAL offers spacious and comfortable rooms, complemented by an extensive selection of dining options across its four restaurants and bars.
Recently, I had the opportunity to stay at PARKROYAL Yangon for several nights, and I am excited to share my experiences with you.
PARKROYAL Yangon Location
+951 8250 388
The PARKROYAL Yangon is located conveniently in the center of Yangon, just a 5-minute walk from the Central Train Station.
Major tourist attractions in Yangon are no more than 10 minutes away by taxi.
This makes the PARKROYAL an ideal base if you want to explore the city’s cultural and historical sites without spending too much time in transit.
PARKROYAL Yangon Rooms & Suites
The PARKROYAL Hotel in Yangon has seven different room and suite categories.
I stayed in the Orchid Club Room situated on the top floor.
The spacious layout provided ample room for comfort and relaxation. The bed was comfortable, and the large smart TV was perfect for movie nights.
The room also featured a big desk with a very comfortable chair.
An exclusive perk of the Orchid Club Room was the access to the club lounge (more about the lounge later!).
Additionally, offering one piece of complimentary laundry per guest was a thoughtful touch. If you travel a lot, you will understand the appreciation of easily accessible laundry service.
Orchid Club Lounge
The Orchid Club Room I stayed in offered exclusive access to the Orchid Club Lounge.
One of the conveniences is the ease and speed of check-in, which I could do directly at the lounge’s counter.
The quiet lounge features various sitting areas well-suited for reading or working.
Additionally, the lounge is equipped with two large screens. As I was the only guest in the lounge most of the time, I could choose my preferred TV programs.
Throughout the day, the lounge provides a range of complementary refreshments, including coffee, tea, soft drinks, and cookies.
The service in the Orchid Club Lounge is excellent! The team did their best to help me with all my requests and questions!
Happy Hour at the Orchid Club Lounge
The Orchid Club Lounge offers a daily happy hour from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM.
During Happy Hour, guests are treated to various complimentary alcoholic beverages. The selection includes beer, gin, whiskey, rum, vodka, and cocktails.
Additionally, the Happy Hour is complemented by a range of canapés. The options include, amongst others, cheese, salads, spring rolls, and sweets.
If you are vegetarian, you can request vegetarian meals.
Breakfast at the Orchid Club Lounge
The Orchid Club Lounge at PARKROYAL Yangon offers an alternative breakfast option to the Spice Brasserie restaurant, providing a quieter, more exclusive setting.
At the lounge, you can enjoy an à la carte breakfast.
You can still order as much as you desire, with the added convenience of being served at your table.
I preferred having breakfast at the buffet restaurant for its wider variety of choices and the ability to see all the available food options.
PARKROYAL Yangon Gym
The gym is well-equipped, featuring a range of well-maintained cardio and weight machines.
An added benefit is the presence of a trainer, ready to assist and guide.
The natural daylight creates a refreshing and energizing atmosphere, enhancing the workout experience.
A standout feature is the locker rooms, which are equipped with a sauna and a steam room, providing a perfect way to relax after a workout.
PARKROYAL Yangon Pool
The outdoor pool at PARKROYAL Yangon offers a refreshing retreat from the city’s bustling streets.
The sunbeds next to the pool are a great relaxing place, and you can order drinks directly at the pool bar.
PARKROYAL Yangon Restaurants & Bars
PARKROYAL has four restaurants and bars, catering to both in-house guests and visitors from outside.
During my stay, I enjoyed breakfast at the Spice Brasserie and checked out the SILVER MOON Bar/ Nightclub in the hotel’s basement.
Opening times: 6.00am to 9.00pm
Spice Brasserie at PARKROYAL Yangon offers local and international cuisines.
It is on the ground level and has a relaxed and casual ambiance.
The breakfast buffet offers an extensive selection of dishes catering to various tastes.
The a la carte options include freshly prepared egg dishes, pancakes, and other sweet treats, adding a personalized touch to the morning meal.
SILVER MOON Bar/ Nightclub
Opening times: 6.00pm onwards, closed on Sundays and Mondays
SILVER MOON is a bar/ nightclub in the basement of the hotel.
The highlight of the evening I visited the bar was the live performance by a talented Filipino band, which added a vibrant energy to the atmosphere.
Situated conveniently in the basement of the hotel, the bar is easily accessible, providing a seamless experience for those staying in the hotel.
As a bonus, hotel guests receive a discount, which is a thoughtful touch.
The bar’s ambiance is enhanced by its excellent acoustics and lighting, although I found the music volume a bit high for my liking.
