What's so wonderful? 1) its location: very near the Central Railway Station with many street vendors serving cheap authentic Myanmese food, Bogyoke Aung San Road with its numerous open markets. 2) staff who are flexible and empowered enough to allow for earlier check-in if room is available and ready. 3) helpful staff that are able to communicate and are generous...

For anyone wishing to explore Yangon's downtown, Indiatown and Chinatown districts, or to use the railway station, there is no better location than the Thamada. The rooms are no-frills but are clean and well maintained, and spacious. Front desk staff are outstandingly friendly and helpful, and the door staff happy to get a taxi, explain your destination, and negotiate your... More

I was on the top floor and not sure where other people got their beautiful window view photos from, I had some ugly buildings and could see a one say street. Room... More

This hotel is located in the heart of the city, opposite of the railway station. The Shwedagon Pagoda is just 3 minutes by taxi, and you can just walk into Yangon downtown. The rooms are clean and spacious, with a good shower. The staff is friendly and helpful.

Ten minutes walk to Bogyoke Market and the circular station is just nearby which we can see from our window. Check-in was smooth. The building is old and needs renovation. On our way to our room, we noticed that there was a bucket in the corridor as the ceiling was leaking. The superior twin room was spacious enough and has... More
