If you need a hotel halfway between the airport and the city centre, and must absolutely stay in this location, then there is limited choices and Avenue 64 may be the obvious choice. But don't expect it to be cheap - hotels rates in Yangon are expensive.
avenue 64 Hotel staff are friendly starting from the porters at main door, reception and the only eatery (don't call it a restaurant). If you expectations are not high and are used to the typical smallish hotels in Europe, then Avenue 64 would sound okay. rooms are large nicely decorated but cheap furniture (probably expensive in Yangon). Mattress together with the pillows are fine and feel clean. However, I have issues with well worn towels and cheap carpets.
The traditional massage on the roof top is very relaxing - rooms are divided with curtains. But the area in the roof top needs cleaning.
The 5 minutes walk to Junction Centre (turn right as you exit the hotel into the main road) can be an adventure at night - traffic is very heavy and crossing the road to reach the other side can be a tricky affair, and be careful of potholes on the equally worn out footpath. Junction Center has a well stocked modern supermarket and 2 levels of shops, about 2 bakeries and a Korean burger joint - Lotteria. Further down the road is a Thai-Chinese-Korean restaurant, local food stalls and a Korean food place plus a money exchange booth outside the Korean food place. Hotel Yangon can be seen at the road junction ahead.
Overall, the hotel tries very hard but the lack of experience in running a hotel is obvious which hopefully will change eventually. it is probably above average considering the lack of quality hotels in Yangon and way down low by international standards.
