I stayed here on arrival in Yangon, and was delighted with my choice! The location right in the centre of town was perfect for exploring. If, like me, you have difficulty finding it on google maps - it's opposite the southern end of Traders Hotel on Sule Pagoda Road.
Whilst the bedroom was a good size, and the bed comfortable, the only strange thing was the bathroom layout. There was no door between the toilet/shower area and the bedroom. Also there was a window between the shower area and the bedroom itself - with a blind for privacy!
The shower itself was good, but the drainage was not great. Speaking of water - there is an endless supply of bottled water from the fridges on certain floor landings.
The first night I didn't wear earplugs and bitterly regretted the decision - it turned out that the bedroom door wasn't very thick, and the was noise in the corridor throughout the night.
Breakfast was one of the best that I had in the country - not a stunning endorsement, but more than adequate.
The reception staff changed some USD cash for me, at a fairly lousy rate. The airport had some of the best rates going. There was also a bank near the hotel which had an equally good rate.
I definitely recommend.
