Room rates seem to be opportunistic and do not reflect the basic nature of the hotel and its amenities. The location is quite central but that is of debatable advantage when there are few attractions nearby. The bus station is a one-hour taxi ride away and well north of the airport. The only worthwhile local attraction was the Shwedagon Pagoda, which is a taxi ride away.
The windowless room was clean but felt claustrophobic and resembled a cell. Breakfast was served in a small space at the rear of the lobby that appeared to be part of someone’s living space.
Staff was helpful and very patient in making numerous calls to find onward hotel accommodation.
My recommendation would be to skip Yangon and start a visit to Burma in Mandalay.
