“Perfect for a Horror Movie”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2011

We were on our way to Bagan but had to stay overnight in Yangon to catch our flight. We chose Yuzana only because it has a commanding view of the Shwedagon Temple Complex - and that was exactly what was the only good thing about this hotel.

If you have seen the horror movie "Echo", Yuzana Hotel could have been the perfect setting. Old, dimly-lit, peeling coats of paint, tattered carpet ... crawling insects!!! We only stayed for 8 hours - and hardly slept at all. The air conditioning was terrible - making all those funny noises. Swatted TWO flying cockroaches too.

We should have spent the 8 hours in the airport waiting for our flight to Bagan - and saved US$60!

The staff were fine, especially the restaurant staff. However, the rooms are old, but the toilet/bath was bad. The tub looks like a scene from Psycho, paint is peeling and some of the sink looked like it wasn't installed properly. When we checked in, we had to look for a staff on the floor to fix our lights.

The best thing about this hotel is that it is near Shwedagon Pagoda and our room have great views.

The restaurant menu is horrible which mostly have Chinese. We had sweet and sour pork because that's the only thing that was decent even though it was too oily. Like I said, the best thing is the service, I was taken care of. It's sad that that hotel is just bad.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2010

Stayed 2 nights in this hotel last month.
The hotel did have a slightly oldish exterior.......

The staff-right from the bell boy, to the door keeper and the front desk were very warm and hospitable and helpful..

After a smooth check-in I went to my rather hugh room with an amazing view of the magnificent Shwe Dagon..

The room was quite big, spacious and comfortable for a single pax....
There was also a bath tub with well stcked shampoo and bath foam,a reasonably priced well-stocked mini-bar ....as well as really comfortable room slippers ....but the hightlight was a magnificient Shwe Dagon view ........I paid only USD 27 with a/c a night with breakfast for all this.....a steal I guess.........Honestly, the view was worth the full money I guess

Imagine waking up to the sight of the beautiful Shwe Dagon well light up....at night it was a wonder !!

The hotel also has an attched supermaket, where you can get a good deal on local pair of jeans or some colourful shirts and handbags....

The breakfsat was also good...decentr variety with the staff more than glad to help serve you with a smile !!

All in all a steal for the price you pay...........well sized and stocked rooms, good cooling, hospitable staff and above all the Magnificient view ( be sure to ask for this as its optional I guess.....else you may get City View room)

This hotel was clean and has basic amenities. The lobby has alot of Burmese artwork . Elevators and hallways were abit old but the rooms were spacious and clean. The view is worth all the money, ask for a room with shwedagon pagoda view. You can see this gold structure from your room and it is very breathtaking. The breakfast was also very good with a variety of Burmese and western food. The staff at the restaurant were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is close to shwedagon pagoda which is one of the main attraction in Yangoon.

The best thing about this hotel is that you can get a Pagoda view room with a splendid view of the Pagoda, It is great that you can always see it from your own room. The room itself was spacious clean with basic amenities with a reasonable price. Breakfast was not bad. I won't say this is a perfect hotel but it was really good for s reasonable price and had a confortable stay here.

The good thing about this hotel is that many rooms have a stunning view of Shwe Dagon Paya.
I had a pretty bad experience with some of the employees, however, and I can't recommend this hotel because of it. I made a three minute call to the US just to let family know I'd arrived OK and I was fine with paying the $10US per minute. When I checked out, however, the staff informed me that I owed $250US for this phone call, which they claimed had lasted 22 minutes. This resulted in a tremendous fiasco requiring the interference of a government agency (never pleasant for a foreigner) and finally being worked out at the train station as I was leaving for the airport. They did finally realize their error, but they were pretty unpleasant about it right up until the end.
