M.G.M. Hotel
Ranked #93 of 177 Yangon (Rangoon) B&B and Inns
Reviewed 7 April 2014

We stayed at the MGM for the entire time we were in Yangon - 5 nights. The hotel's staff is incredibly friendly. Anytime there was an issue, they took care of it immediately. My partner asked for extra towels when he was downstairs and by the time he made it up, we already got them. They always remember to give you our daily free water bottle for Yangon's heat.

The rooms are decent and clean. Every floor is different, so the hotel might be a hit or miss. Some are undergoing renovations. The 8th floor was great. Air conditioning worked perfectly.

Breakfast was nice. There are some Burmese choices of rice, noodles, and vegetables. They also have eggs over easy made in mass on the buffet table, toast, rice porridge (stay away), coffee, and juice.

I think this a good value for Yangon and the location was perfect for us.

Room Tip: 8th floor rooms are definitely worth the price. Location was great!

The place is perfectly located at the center of downtown Yangon. But its maintenance is not that good. There are some floors that are newly painted, but overall it needs renovation. The ground floor reception shares the door to a seafood restaurant which makes the fishy smell evident when you come near the reception table.
The staff are helpful are helpful.

Based on my experience of many hotels in Myanmar and especially Yangon, i will quality this hotel not bad for the budget.
Old rooms without any efforts on the decoration but main utilities renovated which provide you good hot shower, air condition and flat screen TV.
Main issue is the karaoke inside the hotel which is really noisy even i was on the 9th floor.
But if you are looking for a basic accommodation and avoid spending too much while you are in Yangon for few nights, it is acceptable

We stayed on the 8th floor and had a nicely renovated room. Don't let the outside scare you. This is a decent hotel and 3 stars based on coming from the u.s. They have complimentary hot breakfast daily. There is a nice restaurant outside the hotel to your left. Also, there is a message place next to the hotel to the left. The value can't be beat for th price. There was one bad thing. We had a mouse that can in our room during the night one night.

Booking way in advance get me very good rate. Room was big, clean (on the 9th floor with window) but you need earplugs as karokie on the last floor will keep you awake late into night. Good breakfast buffet but better be early - not much selection later. Everybody was very friendly and helpful. It is not in the center of Yangon but you can walk to main attractions. The restaurants near were OK.

Hi booked this place thinking that was the "less worst" because i couldnt find anything else at this price on internet for Yangon, and i had a big surprise. Hotel was quite good. Rooms were big and nice. Staff was incredible kind specially the manager who answered all our request kindly and were not easy at all. We had a great time in MGM. Is true that is a bit noisy but only must be worried about it people that need full silence to sleep, at least the room we had, the noise was not bad at all.

Room Tip: There is a Karaoke on 3rd floor and 11th floor, so try to be far of both, at least 2 stories. I was...

This hotel charges $50 a night, which is too much. The hotel area is not ideal, you need to walk quite some time to find nice restaurants and attractions. We asked for a room with a double bed and a window. The window was not really a window, there were sheets to cover it. But we got a double bed and a single bed, which was nice. The room was quite big. The bathroom was very basic, but there was hot water. The breakfast was in a very cheerless room, we just ate it and left immediately. There is wifi available, not fast
