I stayed here twice, before going to the capital (skip that trip) and on the way back. Loved the hotel. Lots of character with teak and marble everywhere.
Staff are friendly, but could be a little faster with check-in. Rooms are great, with very comfortable beds and linens. The food was better than expected, but I had some minor stomach issues on the second stay, but hey, it happens. Breakfast is better than average.
Wifi is free and as fast as it gets in this part of the world.
The location is awesome, it's like staying at a resort in the city. It's on a beautiful lake, surrounded by mature trees. It's about a 15 minute walk from the Shwedagon Pagoda.
I would happily stay here again.
NOTE: They do not take credit cards. This is pretty much the case with every business in Myanmar, not their fault. So bring cash or pay via a travel agency. There is no ATM in the hotel.
