This was a little cocoon of quiet, greenery and relaxation in the middle of bustling Yangon. The hotel is small and is OOZING character, unlike most of the other large chain, modern hotels in Yangon.
The staff were lovely (no surprise as this was commonplace throughout Myanmar) and the hotel was full of lots of interesting furniture, traditional laquerware from Bagan, weavings from Chin state and just overall had a very eclectic and homely vibe.
The pool was such respite after a day wandering temples.
We ate lunch and dinner at the Savoy, both times in the bistro and had the best food we had in our two week trip. The beetroot and feta salad was absolutely delicious, with a truffle dressing for added decadence!
The only issue we had was with a room. We stayed 2 nights and everything was fine, I think that was room 307. Then we stayed another night before we went home (room 203) and the room smelt damp and musty, the AC did not work properly and the shower pressure was really bad. To be fair, as we were only there for one night and pretty tired we didn't bother saying anything to reception, and I am sure they would have rectified it. But that is not exactly what you want to have to deal with on the last day of your holiday.
Overall, I would not hesitate to recommend the Savoy.More
