To start with, this hotel is just a 20-30 min walk from Shwedagon Pagoda, and infront of Central Women Hospital. Area was quite and clean unlike other busy and noisy areas in yangon. There is a seafood restaurant nearby, and some western cuisine if you walk 200-300m further ( on the direction to pagoda). Staffs are nice and kind., and the rooms are extra clean and kept with same standard as 4-star quality, and does the bathroom too.There are some complimentary eateries like noodles and chips other than water bottles. and the bed and sleep was excellent.
TV has most of the best channels to surf, including LIVE Football Worldcup ( Thats a PLUS !!)
There is a free shuttle from hotel to major tourist attraction like Shwedagon Pagoda and Bogyoke Market on daily basis, you can check the timing in front desk, though you may need to register day before
The restaurant in the second floor is not so pricey compared to the restaurant out, but if you gonna order something, make sure you have ordered something Asian Cuisine, I had bad experience by ordering Western ( burger and pizza ) and mushroom soup which is totally and unbelievably sucks.
Though breakfast was exquisite, with lots of choices and varieties. And the staffs will make sure you had everything you need right at your table.
There are pool table near-room next to restaurant, for hotel guests too. Though didnt get a chance to try, as it was crowded on night time. Plus sauna is free for hotel guests.
And the rest is best compared to some of the other hotel i stayed in yangon, especially value for money ( below $100 ) hotel with such luxurious service. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who s looking for a little extra pampering.
