“Simple, but fits all needs”
Reviewed 30 December 2013

The Ocean Pearl Inn II comes up with a shower in the room, air-condition, free Wifi, a small breakfast in the morning and it is clean. Free airport shuttle (one direction) and friendly and helpful people. Perfect for the budget price.

We had a small very basic room with no window on the 4th floor. It was clean (but don't look too closely at the toilet!). I'm not sure what is on the floor above but it's very noisy, thankfully the noise stops at around 10pm.
No airport shuttle available and they didn't bother cleaning the room after our first night.
Breakfast is edible.
20 minute walk to the centre of town.

We checked in on 11 Nov night. On 12 Nov morning we left for the Schwedagon pagoda and left our belongings in the room. We brought with us our cameras, passports and money.

At 12pm we checked out and headed for Bagan. On the way to Bagan, my friend found out that his handphone which was in the pocket of his small backpack was gone.

Only someone from the hotel who has the access to the room key could go into our room. We believe that it was the job of the "inside man'.
It is not safe here.

The location was a bit out being situated on the eastern end of the town. It is quite difficult to walk to the busier part of the town where the activities are.
There are a lot of other hotels of similar standard in the China town area and places near to the Sule Pagoda. I will not recommend it to anyone.

The room was small and clean and the sheets were comfortable. The a/c was strong and a welcome relief from the pollution outside though the toilet had a smell coming from it (which I got used to after a while). The breakfast is OK and the airport transfer is a definite plus.

The staff were rather surly and brusque and had a below-average grasp of English. Not the best experience I've had while in Myanmar. Location isn't great either and it's a 15 minute walk from the central of Yangon

Generally a value for money stay, don't expect great assistance from the front desk. Best part about it is the airport transfer which makes it a worth-it place to stay.

Room Tip: The room on the ground floor gets the noise from the kitchen in the morning and the smell from the s...

I actually stayed in Aung Si Guesthouse (aka Ocean Pearl II) as the main hotel was fully booked. At $20 it was the most expensive place I stayed in Myanmar and was definitely not the nicest but I felt much better about parting with my money due to one man (who I think may have been the owner) going out of his way to help me. He recommended a great selection of things to do with my time in Yangon (and unlike some places, none of them involved a visit to a great tailor he knows...) and even wrote down the Burmese numbers for me so that I could catch a bus. The room was clean, no windows, good shower (en-suite), effective air con, slightly odd smell. Everything in central Yangon is easy walking distance. You can probably get more for your money elsewhere but Yangon is generally pretty pricey and if you are looking for advice on an itinerary then I would recommend chatting to the staff here.

After read the reviews here and also recommended by VT members, we decided to stay here on our budget trip to Yangon. Due to the expensive rate of accommodation in Yangon, this was the best I could find for the budget US$30 per night of the standard.

Pro: Good Location, acceptable clean, free airport transport, free refill of water, new air-cond, reliable, comfortable beds, hot shower, clean lobby, friendly staffs.

Con: Some of the rooms are smelly but acceptable, internet is slow but could be the problem with service provider and over used by guests.

Good To Know: Bring your own towers!

If you are travelling into Yangon via Air Asia Ocean Pearl provide a free transfer.  Staff are welcoming and very willing to assist with transport requests and speak good English.  It is an older style hotel, some of the stair access to higher floors are quite narrow.  Request room with balcony high up if you can, I believe some rooms may not have windows.  Breakfast is adequate - fruit, eggs and toast with coffee or tea.  It is clean.  Wifi works but tends to be slow and sometimes it is better to sit downstairs in the breakfast area.
This is basic accommodation.
