Stayed at both Traders and Park Royal during this trip. I personally prefer Park Royal. The two hotels are only 5 minutes by foot away, however Park Royal appears to be in a more "residential" neighbourhood so you see more locals. The decor also looks warmer (but I am sure Traders would also appear different after the current renovation). Aung Mingalar Noodles is literally around the corner so you can have a cheap local meal and watch the world go by if you don't feel like hotel food. Interestingly, the food outlets in this hotel post their prices in kyats instead of dollars at Traders. Not sure what their policy on USD is should you decide to pay for anything in USD.
The TV reception was not good in the room, so the pictures of most channels were slightly "snow-flaked". However I was only there for one night so it was not like I totally lost touch with the outside world without the different TV new channels.
The bed was VERY comfortable.
For internet, walk into the shopping centre literally next door (to the left of the hotel when you exit) and go to the 4th floor for Cyberia. K500 an hour.
