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.
