This was my first trip back to Myamar since 2010. I had stayed here three times before. With recent changes in the country, there are now many visitors to the city. The result is most hotels are quite full and Micasa's rates have gone up 3x since my last visit. They also asked me to pay for my 2-night stay in full upon arrival, which they told me is their standard practice now. I was originally offered a room on the second floor but settled on the sixth floor (excellent views). Apparently higher floor rooms have only one queen bed instead of two twin beds. Since we booked for 2 beds, the receptionist explained that second floor was all that was available with 2 beds. Not sure if all the higher floors have single beds or just the ones they were open on that day. The rooms were still clean and spacious and the staff was as friendly as before. I just noticed a slight decline in service and lack of attention to details this time. Upon checking into the room, the bellman noticed that there was no coffee package (sugar, creamer etc) on the table. He promised to let house keeping know. But we did not see any coffee that day or the day after. When I mentioned this on check-out, the lady said coffee package is only provided on arrival. Then she quickly apologized when I told her that we did not get any on arrival either. The breakfast buffet, which begins at 6:30, is still pretty good but no more congee station. There are enough other local and western items to eat. I also found out that they do not serve decaffeinated coffee at breakfast. I never asked for decaf coffee before so not sure if they did not carry decaf or just not at breakfast. With the hotel being near capacity, noise level was also a problem. We had an adjoining door to the room next and we could hear the guests talking pretty much all night. Without carpeting, the noise carried through the adjoining door a lot more. Since our room was facing the pool, it was noisy from kids playing.
There is no wifi but saw a connection for paid internet.
It is still a good hotel with efficient staff. Its location is about half way between Shwedagon and the airport. It is far enough from the city to enjoy early morning views from the room without too much traffic or smog. I was born in Yangon (in fact, not too far from the hotel) so I always looked forward to returning to Micasa and conversing with the staff. However, after a less-than-pleasant experience this time, I may look for a new place next time.
