We stayed there twice, one night on Dec 8 when we first arrive and one night on Dec 22 before we left yangon. The first time we stayed in a deluxe room on the third floor. The room is clean, our window looks into a wall so the room is dark with not much lighting. When we checked out the receptionist asked us to wait, we do not know what happened. 5 or 10 minutes later a guy came down and said we have to pay $4 dollar because one of the hand towel is stained. My husband said he spilled his coffee so he used it to clean the mess. He said we have to pay for it because the stain will not come out. My husband said what if he asked hotel staff to come to our room and clean. He said we should have done that and we were not charged. I was furious and asked to talk to the manager, he said he is the housekeeper manager and lower the price to $3. We travelled a lot and never did we see such a rude and poor service. We had to stay our last night there because we could not cancel without loosing money using Agoda.
The second time we stayed on the 8th floor with view of the pagoda but it was just a small top portion of the Pagoda that we could see. This time it was a different set of problems. The sink has no hot water. After my husband shower, we rested for may be 15 minutes. When he got out of bed he discovered that the floor was flooded. Our luggage on the floor was wet, good thing is that the luggage is waterproof so our clothing were not wet. They came trying to fix the problem. My husband ask for a different room or at least provide a place for me to shower but they said no. I finally got a hot shower in my room after they mopped the floor. We think the flooding was due to clogged drainage system. We will not stay at this hotel again. You may say we were unlucky but stay away from it to avoid the diappointment. The pro is that it is in a very good location and has good wi fi.
