I stayed at this hotel for two nights on my own and then two nights as part of a tour. The staff at check-in was pleasant and efficient. The room I had (707) was quite large with nice wood floors in the main room and tile in the bathroom. This room was on the backside of the hotel and was quiet. There was a wardrobe, a fridge, a desk and chair, two beds (one queen size and one twin size), and a small table with two chairs. The beds were comfortable but the pillows were too large and too hard (I asked for a softer one, but they brought one just as hard). The air conditioning worked well and was quiet. There was a hot pot for making tea and two large bottles of complimentary water. There was a safe for valuables (not working when I got there but they promptly came up and put in new batteries). There was a wall-mounted flat-screen TV with BBC and CNN. There was good free wifi available in the room. The bathroom had a shower/tub combination and adequate shelf space around the sink. Plenty of hot water at the shower; only cold water available at the sink, though. Breakfast was good, with the option of cooked-to-order eggs plus a variety of other food. Compared to hotels in the US, I would consider this hotel overpriced, but the shortage of decent hotels in Yangon has driven prices up.
Restaurants: I ate at both the New Doreen and the YKKO down Watun Street near the corner of Bogyoke Aung San. Both were good. Also ate at the restaurant above the YKKO called the Relax (I think it may actually be part of the YKKO). It was good, too, and more high class and quieter.
Shopping: Go down Min Ye Kyaw Zwar to the T intersection with Pyay Rd. and turn left. Go approximately 500 m and you will find a department store on the west side of the street. Across the street is another department store that has a supermarket (direct entry to the supermarket is around to the left). There is also a small bakery a block down Min Ye Kyaw Zwar street.
