Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We spent three nights in this small three storey hotel . It is set on a quiet lane off a busy street. Our first night was in a small room that looked the worse for wear ($20), the next two nights were in a large clean, well appointed room ($30). There is no elevator and the steps are steep. Breakfast is served on the third floor patio, very pleasant. The staff are helpful and speak english.The hotel is a little ways from the main tourist sites which is ok during the day but it means a taxi ride in the evening if you want to access a variety of restaurants. No internet connection but an internet shop is only a block away.

This smallish hotel is surprising, it is not well advertised but the service is good and the room is spacious and clean. The room we stayed in was twin share, the beds were made daily and the linen changed daily as well. The fridge was well stocked with water as well as alcohol and soft drink, and there was long life milk made available in the room as well. Even though the prices of the bar / fridge were double that in the local shop, you couldn't complain about the price, the Coke was $1,20 AUD, a bottle of water 1 lt was $1.50 AUD. So certainly not excessive. Taxis drive past the main road all the time and they are cheap as. A 45 minute taxi fare from the airport to the hotel was only 5,000 to 6,000 kyatz (chats) or $5 or $6 AUD. The porter will take your luggage up the stairs if your room is on an upper floor and no tip is expected. The restaurant is on the top (third) floor and has a nice view over the local area. Meals are served on request. Staff are very friendly and accommodating, and understanding if you have a case of Burma Belly as we did. Don't book it because we want to on our next visit and we don't want it to be fully booked, alright? By the way, aircon is in the room and works well. On our first day, hot water service was out of commission but got fixed that day (a bit noisy). Of course, in Myanmar, you have to put up with periodic power outages but that's normal for Burma. Apparently we didn't have as many as there used to be in earlier years.

We spent 3 nights in this hotel: 2 at our arrive in Myanmar and 1 before our return flight. At the first two nights we had a good impression of the hotel. We checked on internet all Yangon hotels, and we were resigned to sleep in an average and overpriced hotel (like New Aye Yar or Panorama or Asia Plaza). We have been many times in Yangon, and we already been in all these hotels, pleasant places , such as the Traders, and they are now unreachable for us.
We took the deluxe room at the highest floor, the room was nice , completely covered by wood, and a lot of small terraces, where you can read a book or smoke a cigarette. The hotel is located far from downtown, but with 2000/2500 kiat taxi ride you can reach Sule Pagoda or Shwedagon or the lake. But the second time the impression was not so good, the bathroom (the wc) was not clean, the sheets were stained and we had to kill as many as 3 cockroaches. The hotel is, however, a good compromise and represents a quite good value for money in Yangon, where the prices of the hotels have tripled , but their quality remained the same.

We stayed in another hotel earlier in our trip closer to downtown which cost 55$ and was just about OK. This was only 30$ and SO much better. Room felt very clean and new. Great staff and good location on quiet side street. Def better to avoid the overpriced downtown hotels and stay here.

Just 30$ a night, we got a superior stay with great service mind from hotel team. Thanks to Thu Rain, Thantzin Tun, Moon Lay and the team who hosted us, played water with us and treated us as home!!!
If you want to feel a real steak wooden Myanmar house, wake up with crows and pegions sound, a 4th floor top resting area looking over Pagoda and green trees, free breakfast, coffee, tea and super-free-good-service-mind, STAY HERE!
Remarks: No lift, air need time to make you cold so just take a shower first, but it's very cold at night time (We was on Thingyan festival and the weather was 40 degress something so we can understand)
Recommend for those who love to experience a real Myanmar style stay. If you need more facialities, take other 5 star hotels then.

This is a lovely little hotel. It's well run, clean, comfortable and the staff are very friendly. The only thing that stops me giving it 4 stars was other guests. The rooms are relatively sound proof but nothing is going to stop the sound of constant door slamming and loud chatter of those guests who seem to forget they are in a hotel when they leave for the airport at 5am, or the late night beer drinkers who sit right outside your room. If you come to stay here, remember yours is one of 15 rooms .....

To resume: eleven days of stay. Arrival 3pm 35°C in the room and I put the slow air conditionned...Asking for only fruits for the morning breakfast only two bananas then I have to argue: the answer we are not a five star!...then 2days no cleaning and taking care of the room. Then I was absent 3 days but paid the room.When I come back at night the room is not done (the bed not done, the room not cleaned, no new towel). Last event my lotus scarf 100$ value missing. The answer nobody came in your room with myanmar language comments that I could not understand.
I wish you good luck if you have holidays there.

This hotel was great. The room we had (on the top floor) was very nice. Air-con, hot water shower, fridge, comfy bed and very clean. There was also a lovely common area on the top floor and a restaurant on the third floor. (Breakfast included but we didn't partake due to a very early flight.)
The staff are very helpful and organised taxis for us and/or told us the going rate for a fare downtown. The receptionist speaks very good English.
The hotel is a little further out from what could be considered downtown Yangon (Shwedagon Pagoda or Scotts Market) but it is in a very quiet and peacful setting. A taxi to Scotts market only took a few minutes and was only 2000kyat.
Highly recommended.

Very suitable for the budget conscious holidaymaker. The whole hotel has a wooden interior. There is no lift and one has to go up and down some very steep staircases. This is particularly problematic if you have conventional suitcases. It is definitely advisable to tip the bell boy to carry the baggage up and down.
The hotel is located on Moe Ma Kha lane , very close to the junction with Banyar Dala road.
Near the hotel is the Eye, Ear , Nose and Throat Hospital and the Shin Par Ku hospital.
A young female receptionist with the name Nyein Nyein speaks fluent English and is particularly helpful and pleasant.
There is a roof service area with 3 -4 tables where breakfast is served and one can get some fresh air and limited views of Yangon (due to surrounding buildings)

Maybe not. It's a small home local style guest house. Should book 2 rooms and request the 4th floor so you can stay next together.
