Like many travellers, we had a 6:30am flight from Yangon to Bagan so chose this hotel based on its proximity to the airport. You can definitely walk to the airport, but not advisable in the dark unless you have a torch, and the road is a bit gravelly so your wheelie suitcase may not like it. We arrived late afternoon and were checked in and in our room in minutes. The staff were friendly and we ate dinner in the Chinese restaurant attached to the hotel, which was pretty good. The grounds and pool area looked lovely, though we were too tired to use them. There are also a few shops and other local restaurants a few hundred metres up the road.
The rooms and corridor were very dated (think mid 1960 communist era), but very large. The bed was hard but pretty comfy. Only two pillows in the room and both were very high or big which I wasn’t used to making for an uncomfortable sleeping position. However, the room was very quiet through it was facing the front of the hotel. Bathroom was pretty standard – shower over bath with curtain, toilet in the middle and large bench with basin along the other side. But it was in need of and seriously good scrub and some maintenance. When you showered, water did flow out along the top of the bath onto the floor despite the curtain. My partner had to fix the tap so the water would flow up to the shower head instead of through the bath spout. At least there was no drama with hot water or water pressure.
We received a breakfast pack of a roll, egg and juice for our early departure. Again, the staff were very helpful and hailed a taxi for us (though it was 1500 kyats which is outrageous but it is a trapped market). For an early flight, the hotel is a perfect choice. Probably 3 + 1/2 stars out of 5.
