The East hotel staff do their best but this is still a hotel in a country that only recently opening its doors to tourist. The room itself is quit basic - and has an open bathroom which is not my taste - and noisy, you can hear the staff and other guest outside chatting late at night.
The breakfast is ok, and they will give you a takeout breakfast when you need to catch one of those early flights to another local destination.
The location is near Sule pagoda and many shops and markets are within walking distance.
I often went to a friendly restaurant Takeguchi; when you leave the hotel turn left and walk 100m. They have a nice spicy Thai fried fish and cheap draft beer.
