Our Review of Novotel Yangon Max
Novotel Yangon Max is ideal for both business and leisure travellers. A newly opened hotel in 2015 it offers a modern stay with exceptional service. Being only 20 minutes from the airport and close to Shwedagon Pagoda, it’s also a great choice for travellers who are only transiting in Yangon on their way to Bangan or Inle Lake. Best of all – it is very reasonably priced.
