Hotel is located in convenient area, and takes about 5 minutes walk to Shwedagon Pagonda. Well deco with neo pop art, minimal designed, neat and well furnished. Literally, I was into less is more style because it's simple and not cost an arm and a leg as well. Morover, hotel concern about Eco environmental, so they provide a glass drinking water dispenser instead of plastic bottle. That's such an awesome idea. The rooftop is totally lit for hanging out, having a lite dine meal, drinking a chilled Myanmar beer or booze whilst overlooking the sunset of Shwedagon Pagoda, whether you don't feel up to going out anywhere else but here. Overall, this review isn't written if lack of wonderful staff. You guys are very friendly and willing to help. Thanks once again for your lovely service.

Spotless room with everything you need, bathroom a bit basic. Located in a nice neighborhood, taxi takes you I 10 minutes to the centre. Nice rooftop bar to have a beer with a view on the pagoda, which is a 5 minute walk away. Staff are very friendly and helpful.

My favorite choice in Yangon. Rooms might look a bit tired, but everything was very clean, including sheets, pillows and towels. The hotel is several minutes from the Eastern Gate of Shwedagon pagoda, in a quaint neighborhood with many monasteries. The view of Shwedagon from the roof top bar is fantastic at night. The buffet breakfast offers lots of Western and Asian options, fruit and veggies. The staff was nice and helpful in an unobtrusive way and I really liked the glass water dispenser in the room. Just around the corner from the hotel there is a great little restaurant - Jana Mon Ethnic Cuisine. You can get snacks and fruit from the market below the Eastern stairs of Shwedagon (they make delicious rice pancakes there) and in front of the hotel there is a tiny place serving good strong coffee. Overall great value for money.

This hotel is an excellent choice when visiting Yangon. It’s centrally located, clean, secure and you won’t find a nicer staff. The food is good and they have a rooftop bar with great views of the Pagoda. I highly recommend staying here when visiting Yangon.

I really liked the Merchant Art . The location is perfect , not only for visits of Shwedagon Pagoda . We also walked to Scot's Market for example .The breakfast on the roof terrace is the most beautiful start of a day in Yangon . The views on the golden pagodas in the morning sun takes your breath away . The buffet is great , good choice of Asian and Western food , good coffee . We had a room without window what made it very quiet .
