I only visited 3 hotels in Yangon and with a huge influx of of visitors there will be supply problems for a while as well as bringing standards up to what people from over parts of the world expect. I stayed one night in the East. Bed was fine for a night and shower going really hot or cold is all part of the fun. From a few of the floors you can search and connect to a few wifi networks without a code so didn't need it in the reception. I didn't eat in the restaurant as I didn't want to pay for something I can eat back in Europe for over the top prices in US dollars. Just turn left out of the hotel 5O metres past the cinema and police station and there 2 little places you can sit outside in the Yangon evening heat and eat for a few dollars (not Gordon Ramsey food but getting in with the locals) and at least it had some spice. Across the road from the east go and have a look in the famous traders hotel. There's a great old English style bar upstairs with billiard table and lovely old Chesterton armchairs so you can really relax and if you need some western fare you can buy fish and chips for US16. A good choice given the competition currently in Yangon in the price range.
