Booked to stay here in what my wife who is from Myanmar was told was a superior room. The elevator was not working so it was a climb to the sixth floor at midday in hot season.
The room while spacious does not appear to have had a paint job since the 1940's. The air con was the type that sits in a window and had no control, you had to stand in the bed to switch it on and off. The bed linen though clean was stained.
The charge was 35 USD per day for me plus an extra 5 USD per day for my wife to stay in the room with me and that charge was the local price so I can only guess that for a foreign couple to stay in this room it would be 35 x 2.
Breakfast (if I dare call it that) is included and was oily rice and fried egg, one day,some strange bread with margarine and sugar the next, and a cup of instant coffee. Saving graces were the friendly staff. I know the income helps good causes but to offer such poor amenities at such high a price is just taking advantage of people. We moved out after 3 days and found a much better place at the same price. Review to follow.
