This hotel placed anywhere other than Myanmar (Burma) would be a no-no, however in Myanmar it is and therefore its charms cannot be overlooked - unless you are lucky enough to consider money no object.
The hotels major attraction is its location and friendly family run atmosphere. The hotel is overlooking the Sule Pagoda and is walking distance to the Independent Monument, Scotts Market and a small number of coffee houses / bars.
Inside - the hotel rooms are a comfortable size and more importantly the beds are comfy, if perhaps a little firm for some. Two things that are immediately apparent; 1) they are fully tiled. Walls & floor - Fully tiled however 2) they are spotlessly clean. Bathrooms are often made up of colourful sanitary ware (ours was electric blue this time) But the air-con was cold and a recent addition is the flat screen TV's.
Breakfast is 2 eggs, fried - toast - bananas and honey/jam. Tea or coffee. Ok they will never win a culinary award, but it is sufficient to get you started.
Overall - we have stayed here three times now, its not somewhere Id like to spend a fortnight, but its a great place to stay for a couple of nights whilst exploring this incredible city at a very reasonable price, comparatively speaking.
