Yangon Excelsior

Yangon Excelsior


During colonial British rule, Yangon was a major financial, political, and administrative hub and Burma itself a large exporter of oil, cotton, rice, and timber. The prestigious new Yangon Excelsior, a luxurious hotel opened in downtown Yangon in July 2018, has been painstakingly refurbished from the Heritage Building of the Headquarters of Steel Brothers Limited Company, a major British exporter in the early 19th century. Dating back to the 1870s, this iconic piece of architecture, refurbished to its original splendor, evokes a nostalgic tone as it draws on the Rangoon’s golden age.
With 74 modern, comfortable rooms, an Executive Floor with 16 rooms and an Executive Lounge, a Cafe-Deli-Bar the Newsroom, a Wine & Grill restaurant, gym and spa, and two meeting rooms, the Yangon Excelsior Hotel is the perfect base from which to explore and do business the city. Centrally located for the ease and convenience of curious leisure travelers and the busiest business travelers, the hotel is a gentle reminder of a simpler era, while easily providing the contemporary comforts everyone needs.
A magnificent parquet floor, checkered marble slabs, high ceilings supported by white columns, interspersed with spectacular bay windows – the tone is already set. Stylish and contemporary, The Steel Brothers Wine and Grill offers a vast selection of premium wines and delectable menu based on farm fresh vegetables, prime meat cuts, and sustainably-sourced fish and seafood – all served by an attentive and courteous team. Seating capacity: 90 guests.
Inspired by the newsrooms popularized in the heyday of journalism, their graceful, all-day dining café and deli serves freshly baked breads, sandwiches, salads, pastas, homemade pastries, and caters to the quintessentially British pastime: afternoon tea. The newsroom is a hive of activity at any time of day, from 6:30 in the morning when the early birds get coffee to the last, relaxing drink at 23:30. Seating capacity: 60 guests
