The tired entrance to this tired 3 star hotel has been demolished and a new hotel is being built on the site. You enter the current establishment up a set of precarious wooded steps off an alley. The old foyer remains but looks out through a glass wall into the construction site. There were some wifi issues but good reception...

Yangon has heavy traffic jam during working hours so prefer to stay the hotel close to the...

This is a comfortable medium grade hotel in Yangon, Burma, not far from the Shwe Dagon Pagoda but somewhat out of town. The rooms are quiet and clean, the breakfast is spectacular with Western and Burmese food which is delicious. The staff is very nice. When I was there last the elevator was not working which was O.K. but not...

The location is great as its right near the lake and the back facing rooms on the 4th floor are good value. BUT this hotel is under massive reconstruction (booking.com lists it as renovations). They are building a whole new wing so unless you are at the back you will have workmen peering into your windows and it's not quiet...

Booked through booking.com and it was disgusting. We got to our room and the carpet was moldy, dirty and smelt like rat poop. We got another room with tiles instead of carpet but was disgusting. Terrible service.....the breakfast was disgusting.

While the staff was pleasant, this hotel was simply wretched. Our room was filthy, small and old. The breakfast was unpleasant, and very minimal. The free wifi was just about useless; it was often unavailable, and when we could connect, it was incredibly slow. One night, we had to listen to a dog barking all night long. In addition, we...
