Nice hotel with good service and friendly staff. Nice location close to city center and sights. Easy to get around by taxi. Clean rooms and a great breakfast buffet.
Got some tips for good restaurants.

For me, this place is just shy of a 4-start TA rating.
To be honest, the main reason you would stay here, a little way out of the city centre, is that it is cheaper than the big western hotels in downtown Yangon. When we stayed, the rates for a superior room were about half of the downtown hotels.
Yes, it's a little way out, but it's only 5 minutes and 2-3000 kiat by taxi from downtown and chinetown etc, so not too much of a drag. It's also within reasonable walking distance of the Shwe Dagon Pagoda, if you're feeling energetic.
The superior room we had was very spacious and pretty well equipped - nothing to complain about.
We had food in the adjoining café won lunchtime and it was reasonable. There is a also a slew of Chinese and Myanmar restaurants about 200m along the road, to the left as you come out of the front door, some actually pretty good, so you don't have to trek into town every night.
Service was good, enough front desk staff spoke some English and they were very helpful in arranging flights and transport for us.
Overall, not a bad place to stay and good value for money.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the road have great views of the Shwedagon pagoda floodlit at night. Make sure you cont...

New hotel with warm and friendly staff. Stayed 3 days. The gym was equipped with the latest ttrack mills, bicycles and weights and the suana was not bad too. Complimentary breakfast available which a good mix of international and local specialties. The bed was very comfortable and big, complimentary drinking water was provided too. Wifi connection throughout the hotel was good. Overall, I had a good stay at the hotel.

I stayed here for almost 10 nights during my trip in Yangon. This is a very new hotel opened up recently. Rooms are clean and have enough space. They have most of the required equipment in Gym. Free Buffet breakfast provides a variety of choices with alternative dishes every morning. The staff are very friendly and the Wifi in this hotel is very good. Value for money for Business Trip. Availability of Rooms is a challenge at all times.

Room Tip: Try to book for a Superior Room with Window or Deluxe Room. Avoid the 9th floor for February month i...

Very spanking and sparklingly new hotel with really helpful and welcoming staff. Free breakfast offers enough choice plus local specialties. Comfortable beds a bit more generous than twin size. Everything works except for room wifi connexion.

Mingalabar!

Thank you very much for your feedback on Tripadvisor!

I am pleased that you had a positive experience at our hotel and will be sure to pass on your compliments to my staffs across all departments. We continuously work hard to improve our breakfast and we concentrate on exposing Burmese specialties as we want our guests to embrace Burmese culture to the finest degrees.

I will be sure to look into the issue you had with WiFi as it has been working relatively better since early January. Regarding location, we are located in a peaceful neighborhood, but easily accessible to the city center through light traffic around us. We also provide free shuttle service daily to Shwedagon Pagoda, Bogyoke Market and Chinatown. Our shuttle service is also available to specific places in the city center, subject to availability.

Once again, I thank you for your feedback on Tripadvisor and would love to welcome you again the next time you visit Yangon!

We stayed 3 days. The staff was nice but their English was poor, except for a male receptionist. We were 3 so we needed an extra bed and the mattress was very bad. We stayed there after a week and the second time we got a much better extra bed. The pillows are too high, it would be nice if they could provide smaller ones for those who need them. Wifi is present everywhere but it is quite slow.
The taxi trip to the centre is short and the taxi takes 1500 kyats. Incredible view of Shwedagon at night, ask for a high floor.

Room Tip: Incredible view of Shwedagon at night, ask for a high floor.

Mingalabar!

Thank you very much for your feedback on Tripadvisor!

We are continuously trying hard to improve the communication abilities of our staffs and I am pleased you found the warmth they offered positive. I will look into the extra bed issue you had during the first leg of your stay and as we greatly value the comfort of our beds, I will ensure this does not happen again. We will also try to gauge ways to enhance the comfort of our pillows. We recently implemented a new WiFi infrastructure in late December and we are confident that it is more accessible the next time you stay at our hotel!

Finally, I am glad you enjoyed the external views our hotel offered and would love to welcome you again the next time you visit this beautiful city!
