I recently enjoyed my stay at the Chinatown branch of this hotel and was similarly pleased with my stay at the branch in Ahlone, after coming back from a short trip. It was clear from the moment I arrived at the hotel that the customer service was top-notch. After a long day of travel, I came back to my room to find my room not only cleaned, but that my personal belongings were organized and cleaned. Above all, what I liked most about this hotel was that everything was new including the room furnishings and hotel lobby. I was told by someone from the front desk that the hotel had recently had its grand opening.
From the hotel, it took me 10 minutes by taxi to get to downtown Yangon, which I think is close enough to avoid the hassle of traffic. The Shwedagon Pagoda and Bogyoke Market are both located within a short walking distance. My room was equipped with a TV that had access to international channels, high-speed Wi-Fi, and a phone. The views from my room were expansive as I could see some of the city’s famous sites including the Shwedagon Pagoda. I ate a few of my meals at the hotel restaurant, called the Carpe Diem. They had a variety of options, including Western breakfast/lunch/dinner items, Asian fusion and native Burmese cuisine. I personally enjoyed their Mon-hin-ga noodle soup and eggrolls the most. Additionally, I also checked out the gym which, according to the staff, was not yet completed and still awaiting the arrival of cardio and strength machines. There is also a recreational lounge available to guests that include a billiard table I enjoyed playing with. Moreover, I think the hotel is very suitable for business travelers as it has a conference room for seminars and events.
Overall, I would recommend this hotel to others because it offers a relaxing retreat from the hustle and bustle of downtown Yangon.
