The hotels principal selling feature is that it is only 10 minutes from the airport. We had an early flight and needed to be at the airport at 6am so its location was perfect for us.
The rooms are very basic, though surprisingly did have a roomsafe. The furnishings were tired and the room lighting barely enough to read by. The bathroom was a good size and the shower probably had the best pressure of any hotel (including 5 star) that we stayed in Myanmar! We would not have wanted to spend any longer there - particularly as the air conditioning did not really work and the room never got below 25 deg. all night, so sleeping was spasmodic at best.
Staff were very helpful and even the Manager came to help when we could not get the air conditioning to work.
We did not eat in the hotel but went to the Golden Duck across the road as recommended by our guide. Needed courage to cross the busy road but the restaurant was packed with locals - well over 100 of them. But we had a great meal wihch costs us only US$21 all in including drinks!
