“Good airport transfer”
Reviewed 22 April 2014 via mobile

We stayed here for one night and the ease of transport from the airport to the hotel (maybe 5 mins) was perfect for our purposes. Our room needed updating as did most of the hotel (welcome to Myanmar!) but it was quiet, clean, had decent Wi-Fi and the pool looked really nice. Food was also decent for dinner and large selection for breakfast buffet.

Stayed April 2014, travelled as a couple

A little further from the airport than expected but still easy to get there with a taxi. Rooms good but nothing special. The pool looked nice but we reached the hotel too late to try it out. They arranged breakfast boxes for us since we had to catch an early morning flight the day after. Given the alternatives, we could stay there again.

We stayed in the new luxury rooms in the hotel towards the back of the hotel compound. The rooms were extremely spacious and spotlessly clean. The bathroom had a large walk in shower and bath. As the block is newly built all fixtures and fittings are new. The rooms also benefit from blackout curtains which are a real plus. Soundproofing is very good, there is a further new block being built 30m from the rooms we stayed in but no construction work could be heard from our room.

Staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The cleaning staff are efficient and always held the door open for us.

There is a large chlorinated salt water pool, great for cooling off. The mix of chlorine and salt is tough on the eyes however so goggles and a hat are recommended for swimmers wanting to do lengths.

Hotel is a 5 minute ride from the airport which is great for early morning flights. It is up to an hour from the centre of town in rush hour which isn't great. What Myanmar Life has over the central Yangon hotels however is the space to build low density rooms. No tower blocks here.

The hotel has its own generator ensuring you have AC and power even if the mains is down. Internet was touch and go but this is Burma and internet access is not a given compared to other countries. This was more of an infrastructure issue rather than a hotel issue.

Overall, great hotel and highly recommended.

Right up front: great place to stay as you transition during your Burma adventure. Close to the airport, rooms are clean, beds are comfortable (firm), AC works great, and salt water swimming pool is a huge bonus. We ate both breakfast and lunch and Myanmar Life rocks. Breakfast buffet has both Asian and western fare to please all but those who you can't please anywhere/any place. Great job across the board by the staff. Recommend Myanmar Life for those adventurers with or without families.

We used Myanmar Life as a stop-over base in Yangon for our tour through Myanmar (see review 'Return to Myanmar' in forum).
We spent four nights in all there, with breaks between them to visit different parts of the country. This hotel was selected because of proximity to the airport and an excellent swimming pool for relaxation between each trip.
The hotel was ideal for our purpose. The service was first-class. We had a room over-looking the pool. It was spacious and very clean, and internet connection was good. We cannot fault the hotel, although perhaps the breakfasts could have been better
We ate most evenings at a local cafe/mini-mart just 800 yards from the hotel. This in itself was an experience! Little English spoken, but wonderful camaraderie and friendship.
All in all a most enjoyable visit.

My poolside room was neat/clean and included a king size bed . I used room service for my meals and found them fresh and tasty . Staff as in most south east Asia hotels where helpful . WiFi can be hard to access but once connected could support even a FaceTime call home . Taxi from airport should cost you USD$3.00 . Make sure you travel with new/clean USD$ as locals are worried about counterfeit notes .

Very pleasant stay here lovely food, beautifully set out room (329) which was clean and tidy and very spacious, beds were firm mattresses towels were a bit frayed around the edges though. Pool is filled with salt water, but very nice after a long day travelling or working to slip into for a swim.
