This was one of two hotels we stayed at in Yangon. We generally liked this hotel. It is a basic hotel (if you are expecting Traders, go to Traders). For our purposes, the room was very large -- plenty large to accommodate three adults (as we were). The room we had could also accommodate a small family (they are able to bring in an extra mattress to supplement two double beds with room to spare). It's located in downtown -- very close to the Strand hotel and relatively close to Bogyoke market. As others have noted, it is a little further away from some of the key sites like Shwedagon Pagoda, as well as some restaurants that are recommended by guide books.
On the other hand, though the other hotel was closer to some of the main sites, we actually liked this one better. Staff was great -- so willing to help us with whatever we needed. They practically raced to open the door for us each time we approached. They can arrange flights and other travel. They will explain to taxis where you need to go. The staff we encountered also spoke excellent English.
Also, though not as close to main sites, cabs were relatively inexpensive when we wanted to go to those main sites. We also thought we were quoted less from this location than from the locations in the northern part of the city where are second hotel was located.
Most of all, we found the location of this hotel much more interesting as pedestrians. We could walk about the area on foot and get a feel for the hustle and bustle of both day and night activity in downtown. The streets near us teemed with people selling wares and food. An all purpose store (market, plus clothes, etc) also was located quite close by.
