“Good Clean Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

I stayed in February 2014. The hotel was impeccably clean, the room are basic but have all you require aircon, fridge, safe etc and free wifi. But breakfast on the 9th floor with a wonderful view over Yangon in the morning was simply awesome. The hotel staff are so very helpful. A big Thank You to Edward, his brother and Soe for their help and assistance whilst experiencing problems with visa. Well recommend a visit. Lovely staff, lovely atmosphere and good location to go exploring. Walking distance to Shwedagon Pagoda approx 35 mins. Yangon market approx 20 mins. Airport journey approx 30 mins by taxi depending on rush hour traffic but approx 8000 kyats. Well worth a visit

Stayed February 2014, traveled with friends

Anywhere else in Asia this would be a 10 usd a night hotel ! But it's Myanmar and it's expensive. This was close to 50 usd a night and really not worth the money. The room was tiny hardly any space for luggage it immediately looked like a bomb had gone off in our room after we unpacked some stuff, the bathroom was just bigger than a shower cubicle and was not really a room just frosted glass stuck onto our room . But apart from the size ,the bed was comfortable and wifi worked ok and the breakfast was really good. Bad coffee however , unless you like Nescafé. The hotel is at the far end of Yangon city so either walk a lot (we did) or it's taxis ! Ignore lonely planets food, money changing tips etc it's all very bad advice, we got 972 usd exchange rate in a normal money changer , if I went back to Yangon I probably wouldn't stay here , it's nearly an hour from the airport/ bus station and cost us 9000k we also got the train to golden rock which was fantastic ,upperclass for two 17400k

Its located on a busy road, very small rooms are noisy during the daytime. Road in front is currently is construction. We had to change room three times, all were similar in quality. Staff was very friendly and helpful especially at night shift.

I actually liked this hotel, I have stayed here twice on this trip and am going back for one more night before I leave Myanmar. It's not central but is downtown, on 9th and Mahabandoola road, so only about two or three blocks from Chinatown. There is plenty to see and do locally, and the restaurant directly across the road does great, cheap local food and the owners are friendly. The room I got was at the front and on the 7th floor so had a great view of the river, docks and street below. The room was adequate without being large. It had plenty of hot water and the bed was ver comfortable. The staff are friendly and the breakfast choice, while not on the scale of other similar hotels in other Asian capital cities,was the best I had in Myanmar. The restaurant is in the top floor and is all glassed in so you get great views when you eat, and it's open 24 hours! I got a good price on Agoda, well good by Myanmar standards anyhow. So if you want a midrange hotel with good beds and restaurant and a downtown location, you can't go past this hotel.

Room Tip: The higher floors have great views

We chose this hotel because of the location near Chinatown and the river. That was a good thing as we were quite central to many things but as the hotel is on Mahavandoola Rd this is also bus central, traffic central, loudspeaker central, etc. The hotel windows are single glazed and not sealed around the outside so we heard every noise from the street. This being Yangon nobody is shy to use their horns and every bus starting at 5am would honk their way through the bus stops and traffic. Maybe we could have handled that but the other major factor was the bed! The mattress was as hard as concrete. My wife and I were very sore and sorry after our week in this hotel. We changed rooms but the mattress was even harder and the noises louder. The upstairs restaurant has a nice view over Yangon and the food is OK although breakfast is very basic. Staff are trying and are always pleasant. Like many basic hotels in Yangon this place will either drop its prices or go out of business when the big hotel chains get their act together.

The staff is very friendly and helpful. Rooms are on the smaller side but ok clean. Location is ok, but a little too far to the west of the city. Also some traffic from Maha Bandula Rd outside can be heard in the rooms. Price wise it is good value for Yangon, but in eg Bangkok you would expect a lot more. The included breakfast is decent, it's worth it just for the view from the 9th floor

The Location of the NYH is perfect, if you want to really experience the local people, culture and their way of life. There is easy access to most of the major pagoda's, markets, parks, museums,restaurant's, railway,malls in a short taxi ride not costing more than 3 USD. The Hotel is new so you can enjoy cleanliness all round, comfortable bed, new towels and linen, high pressure shower(hot), Wi-Fi, good breakfast and an absolutely stunning view from the top floor breakfast room. The fridge and hot water flask in the room is an added bonus. What really makes the NYH stand out thou is the STAFF. Very professional, accommodating, attentive, warm, and helpful in general. This applies to all the staff but a special mention goes to the Front desk staff Mr. Soe Min Naing and Vincent. The Chef also accommodated us with vegetarian breakfast as one of us is vegetarian. Best wishes to the NYH for 2014 and the future!
Thank You for making our already memorable experience in Yangon even better!

Room Tip: Room on the 7th floor facing the city/partial river view/sun rise
