“Overpriced and not as advertised.”
Reviewed 10 February 2012

We were disappointed in this place. We had a hard time finding a hotel for our trip, and we booked a room here because it was one of the few places that was available. We paid $60 night, and it wasn't worth half of that. We were on the ninth floor, and there is a pigeon infestation between the ceiling panels and the roof (as indicated by the feathers in the room, and the bird feces dripping down the window and upper corners of the bathroom walls). Very noisy at night and hard to sleep because of it. There was also a mouse in our room, rustling in our trash, so we had to move the garbage can into the hallway. The staff were polite at times, but rude and dismissive if you asked too many questions. Hot water in the shower lasts for about 3 minutes, and then it's lukewarm at best.

Also, be aware that they are VERY picky when it comes to US dollars. They didn't accept our $100 bills because they were "before series 2000". No other place in Yangon rejected our money for this reason.

I stayed at the hotel for 4 nights with some friends. The hotel manager was exceptionally nice and very helpful, however we do have some language problem when communicating with the other staff. Room - comfortable and clean. They could definitely improve on the breakfast menu which were exactly the same for the total 4 days we were there! Location- it is about 30 minutes from the airport which costs us 5000 Kyats. It is very near (10mins) to the famous Scott market (1500 kyats).

This place is a little older and in need of a bit of TLC but we had a big room a hot shower and amazing service, like amazing service. There is a spa on level 2 for cheap massages and a fitness centre that had free yoga and boxing classes. The breakfast buffet was ok but not great and mostly geared to the Chinese tour groups. The room rate was as stated for a twin room but when one of my 2 in the twin extended his stay he got a great $25 US room rate for a double room.
