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.

Affordable rooms in Yangon are tight, so sometimes you need to be happy with what you can get. This hotel is recently opened, just before I got there. So it sounded like it was new. I googled it and found a local English paper showing this new hotel yet to open!

It isa new hotel , but the building is NOT new. They dolled up the front to make it look new, but its an older building. I could tell right off when I walked into the room and found everything so dysfunctional!!! Plugs in places you cant reach. No place for your bags that makes any sense. Must have been old offices or something that someone redid to make into a hotel.

That said there is good and not as good here. First off the price was right. I got a good deal on Agoda. I didn't pay a lot so I don't want to complain too much. Later I saw it wasn't on Agoda. Not sure if it is now or not. Other modern hotels could be priced several times what I paid.

Help was nice, however EVERYONE in Myanmar (save a few handicraft vendors at Bagan temples) is nice...so very nice! - so that is almost a given in the whole country. Worlds nicest people anywhere.

Location isn't downtown, but that isn't always bad. Downtown is busy! This is north a bit but too far to walk, You will take cabs where you have to go. Downtown is full of people and foreigners are no longer so rare. Yes a few people could be intrigued by you, but not that many anymore.

Go a few miles here and start walking, especially to the NE of this hotel and your a sensation!
Just like all over the rest of the country. Not many foreigners walk around up here. We found several fun walking areas to the NE of here. Places where people all eat out, the local fresh/traditional market and more. These people all stare and get excited over foreigners. Not like downtown. They love their pics taken. We got thousands of people pics, not just there but all over the country. Downtown though, its a bit different and if you just stay downtown you wont know what Im talking about. Yes there are people there interested in foreigners too but to a much lesser degree. There is a difference.

There is a rooftop bar, restaurant, and that is where the breakfast is served. You can get a somewhat decent view around town, and can see the Schwedagon Pagoda too. Its really not far.
Every day at breakfast they put up a board. You choose one of their options. It's not a lot of food. No buffet, no way.

When you exit the hotel turn LEFT and you will find a lady cooking on the street if you like that kind of deal. Food looked good. After that is a busy medical clinic with people coming and going in and out. After that is a branch of a convenience store you find in Thailand too..108 Mini Mart. You can get sundries, water, drinks, booze, beer, ice creams, etc etc in there. I was a regular there! Very convenient.

For eating, we tried the Indian place down the road. Good but VERY expensive. Far more than I pay for Indian food at home. What became our regular is the local eatery another 1- 2 down from the Mini mart. Waiters are young boys, which is common in Myanmar. Ages about 9-12. They have school during the day and go there at night. The one with glasses and his sister there with glasses too....often at the register are kids of the Dad who runs the place. There is ONE menu for the whole place as most are regulars and don't need a menu. Its for foreigners in English. No prices though. Nothing is all that expensive. Portions are small. A chicken curry arrived and it was like a dessert dish with one little piece of Chicken and a smidgen of sauce!
Well its priced cheap ...so just keep eating until your full. Rice, roti, and other things can fill you up. They also have pastries on display and they sit all over the place on dishes. Guess your on the honor system when you eat one as they cant keep track of them all over. I loved the bean paste one. We went back there several times. Its often busy and its the kind of place you sit on tiny chairs or those little plastic stools. Not the most comfortable for large foreigners but that's the standard not only here but in much of SE asia.

I was able to store bags here and return to the hotel. Just leave the bags against the far wall in the lobby.

Internet here is spotty like everywhere in Myanmar. That's a national problem. Hope it gets better soon. They say internet only works in lobby, but it often works on the first floor too, when it works, as its right over the lobby.

I paid the mid category price on Agoda but I don't think it matters. If I was to do it again Id take the low category as my guess is I was given the low category anyway, at least the first trip. Second trip there was a bathtub and much larger bathtub. So maybe I got the right category the second time but that was just one night only before flying out.

Electric plug--- the first room only had one and the TV was plugged into it and it was way back behind the TV. Not at all easy to get to. Needless to say we had to unplug that TV and it stayed unplugged the rest of the time. The second check in room had 2 plugs, one easy to get to and one you had to kill yourself to get to under a ledge and behind the bed, yet it was there.
------------------
Aside from the hotel, I enjoyed the zoo! 2000 Kyat and not far. Also Schwedegon Pagoda is the #1 sight in the country nearby. Don't miss it. We went once in the daytime and stayed 5 hours. Then returned another day at night and again stayed almost 5 hours. No place quite like it.
$5 admission for foreigners. No food or drink sold. But its worth it! Makes a Thai temple look terribly boring after you have been here! Bring camera with lots of batteries and chips. You can take pictures of everything and everyone!

The location of the hotel is not great, very dark in night time.
The hotel is a bit away from downtown.
Breakfast is not great.
Bar on the top floor, you can see a view of Shwedagon Pagoda.

This hotel is located on the fringe of Downtown. Whilst Downtown is in the program for all travellers and tourists that came here to experience the hustle bustle of Asia, for old Asian hands, you may want to give Downtown a miss anyhow as the traffic there is absolutely horrendous. YOu may find yourself stuck in traffic most of the time. Back to this hotel, it's located along Pho Sein Road, where entertainment centres, hotels, guest houses are located. In other words, locals and international people all flock here especially in the evening and you would most definitely hear the Boom Boom Boom of the dancing music as it got rather late. Hotel Pho Sein gave you an impression of the modern look BUT as you look deeper, you would take note that everything is done in a hotch potch way. On every floors (four rooms to each floor), you would find spare beds or furniture to be tucked outside. Welcome to Asia:) Room is absolutely spacious and Wi-Fi could be obtained in the room too. However, I would suggest folks to use it in odd hours because when all guests start to use Wi-Fi, you would find it to slow down to a crawl. The bathroom facility has everything but you may find it to be a tad untidy but perfectly useable. Water pressure is good but it would take a while to heat up but that's fine. I find this conundrum, it provides you with coffee and tea satchels but there's no kettle in the room(?) And so, I would request for the Front Office to provide me with a kettle and he or she would acknowledge that it doesn't have kettle BUT it would provide us with a thermal flask filled with boiled water instead. Not all staff can speak English and some of them would keep saying Yes to you all the time anyhow and believe me, I have done a test on them:) It has a restaurant/bar on the top floor, which gives you a panoramic view of the Yangon vista. There's no air conditioning there and it is really stuffy in the evening as heat rises up. The restaurant/bar has a identity crisis because it doesn't know which one it should be. The music is loud and yet, the light is VERY dim. Food menu is provided but I need my smartphone torch to read it because it only has ambient light. Instead of normal dining table, it has leaner instead. Morning breakfast is fine with all the usual standard fare. To be fair, Myanmar has come a long way and it isn't appropriate of us to use standard overseas to judge its standard. Yes, it has a long way to go especially on staff training but at least, it's on the right track. Give it a go!!

I used to stay in a suite room for over 5yrs on monthly basic where we drinks and chitchat to escape from the stressful environment. Yesterday we booked the same room to meet with friends to drink and chitchat as usual. Reception said we can only check in at 19:30hrs and we said fine. We are OK because we want a big room. A few hours later informed me that our check-in time will be 20:30hr coz room is occupied. I said that OK we will check in at 20:30 and 2 of us will sleep overnight but the rest 2 will go back at midnight as usual.
When we check in at 21:00hrs, fat guy with glasses talk to us very rudely that you had to check out on 23:00hrs. I told him 2 of us will sleep overnight and the other 2 will go back at 12:00 midnight. We are willing to pay for extra bed charges as well. But he said go and drink in bar at rooftop or leave the room at 23:00 if want to drink in room.
Finally, i realize that hotel is renting the room in hourly basic and reception did not want to rent the room if we stay overnight. We withdrew all money immediately and left the hotel without even telling anything.
We take more expensive room in another hotel.
Bye Bye Phoe Sein your staffs' service is lousy even in way of communication. Will definitely not visit again. Choose wisely or threated rudely.

I have read some of the comments of the hotel by others and I have a different view.
Myanmar is a developing nation and just emerging from decades of isolation, trade sanctions and US trade embargoes. Hence there are no Hilton or Sheraton or Intercontinental Hotels here, not yet. Demand outstrip supply hence room rates are high here. The local hotel industry is still developing hence the hotel is not yet up to western standards. However, the rooms are generally alright and the inconveniences (slight noise, dull decor,) are bearable, The rooms are also clean enough. The hotel has a restaurant on the roof top which is a gem of a place. It is generally quiet most nights, serve cheap food and beer and it has a great view of the Shwedagon Pagoda. The staff is also great and they try to do their best despite the language barrier.
And to me the so called outside traffic noise was all culture to me. The hotel is right at the heart of where the normal Myanmarese people live, eat and work. This is why we come to Myanmar, to experience this before it all becomes all westernized.

Very clean and simple hotel. Shower slippers provided. Restaurant on 6th floor had amazing view. We did not have breakfast as we left too early, they did provide a nice breakfast box. We were disappointed in the morning as we had no hot water.

I really wanted to like this hotel. The staff is really nice and there are beautiful views from the restaurant on the top floor. The food was good and not expensive. However, there were too many frustrations for me to want to return. The wifi was not reliable, and it kept going out after I lost the little slip of paper with the password for the day. There was nowhere private to put anything in my room - not a drawer, not a cupboard, nothing. I prefer to have a bit of privacy. In spite of being nice, the staff did not speak English well enough to be consistently helpful. The hotel is on a busy road and it is difficult to walk anywhere.

The staff were very friendly and helpful the whole time we were there. They are happy to organise a taxi for you and make sure you are comfortable.

The rooms are spacious and from the rooftop, you can see Shwedagon in the distance. The pillows are quite solid, but that seems to be very common in Asia!

It is about a 10-15 minute walk from Kandawgyi Lake if you are up for a morning run!

Happy with the experience.
