I arrived in Yangon from Bagan at 4.50am in the morning - I initially planned to head straight for the airport for my 12.30pm flight but it was pitch black and I was too tired to stand up straight for another half a day. I chose Central Hotel for the key reason on which I can bet that the taxi driver knew where it was (I already knew it was established and at a centra location). and True enough, the taxi driver did know where it was. This was very improtant as I did not want to go looking around for alternate hotels at 5am in the morning.
They offered me USD 25 for 5 hours use (which, of course, isnt a very good deal). I was of course, in no position to argue. The room I had was had twin beds and a clean toilet with bath and aminities. The decor is a dated and the hotel can definitely use some refurbishment. The coffee in the breakfast was very good and it had a nice selection of porridge, noodles, toast, eggs and fruits. The staff was also very helpful. They have internet service for USD1 or 1000Kyats in the lobby. Dialing IDD is USD 3 per minute.
All in all, it was really kind of average for me. Comparatively speaking, USD 25 isnt a very good deal as I have gotten the same kind of room in Thailand (outside Bangkok, however) for USD 15. Not having stayed anywhere else in Myanmar to be able to compare and reading the other reviews provided however gave me the idea that this was as good as it got in Yangon for USD 25. In conclusion you should be able to stay at this place without much complaints.
