7 of us stayed at East hotel for a week in Nov'12-my 3 sisters,my daughter and 2 nieces-aged 11 to 14. We stayed in 3 rooms-1 shared by the 3 girls with an extra bed. I booked this hotel base on the reviews given and especially for the location. I can confidently say that we are extremely happy that we picked East to stay at. Location wise-it cannot be faulted-from the front door-turn left and its less than 10 mins to Sule Pagoda, the Muslim temple and the Church (Amazing!-3 places of worship right next to each other). Turn right and its less than 10 mins to Bogyoke Market (fabulous jade jewelly-great prices!), with coffee shops and eating places on the way and the numerous street food vendors and fruit sellers.
We stayed on the 7 floor - the oft mentioned doorless shower and toilet still do not have doors but they obviously have taken heed of the numerous comments. The showers have blinds on the walls & shower curtains. The toilet has large bead hangings for doors-it does the job adequately. There are rooms that have the wall partition strategically located so the toilet is hidden-room 705 e.g.
Staff are very friendly, they seem to take great pride on their 4 pt rating from Tripadvisor-prominently displayed at the front desk. Breakfast is included, you have a choice of ala carte or the set breakfast-chinese, western or local, which also comes with a fruit bowl and juice daily. More than adequate to set you up for the day. Free Wi fi in the whole hotel-with a shared computer at the lobby. I used it for work and the speed was only problematic from 11am onwards for a couple of hours. Morning & night was absolutely fine.
I highly recommend this hotel for anyone. We met business people and families staying at the hotel. This guy from S'pore comes to Burma on business nearly every mth & he says he stays there all the time. Mind you bigger hotels are also all around the area. Price wise can't complain-I take it hotel prices have gone through the roof since Burma has opened its doors.
