When we arrived at this hotel we were in high spirits. The taxi had only cost us 8,000 Kyat from the airport and the hotel staff who greeted us on arrival we smiley and very welcoming. Unfortunately when we headed to our room things started to decline quickly. The corridors have wallpaper basically falling off them and the room had the same problem and a large damp patch on the carpet. After the loo broke and leaked on the floor we understood why the damp patch existed. We tried to change rooms but the hotel was full so we stayed put. After the initial shock of the room quality we found several extra good points that we had previously over looked. Both the wifi and the air conditioning worked very well. The location of the hotel is about a 20 mins walk from the Shwedagon pagoda and a 5 min walk from a good market. There are also good cheap restaurants near by. The rooftop bar and restaurant is also good for both food & drink although a little pricey. We decided to stay in this hotel as it was the cheapest option in the centre of town, people will continue to stay here for the same option. I'm not sure if I'd stay here again, if I did it would largely be due to the friendly staff.
