“Not up to standard”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

The front office is not very cooperative, as they didn't bother whether we stay or not. No welcome drink. The 100 years old lift was a good experience. This was General Aung sangs office they should give preference to renovate this so that it alone is marketable. The toilet taps were hanging and once you open it you have to call the room service to close it. No kettle instead a flask which didn't hold the temperature. Early morning at 4 a.m room boys knocked at the door and said by mistake.

We began and ended our tour here. The staff makes a huge difference--they are young, friendly and eager to serve. The location is convenient enough, within a reasonable walking distance of sites you'll want to visit.

The rooms are more than adequate. WiFi service may be possible but is very inconsistent as are most locations in Myanmar, but there are more reliable Internet connections in the lobby or at an Internet cafe across the street.

Breakfasts are served. Nothing fancy, but you can get an egg along with breads and other items to hold you for the morning.

We started a tour here. Very young staff, all smiles. Cheaper rooms in the rear are small but adequate; premium rooms in front are spacious. Yes, it's all old and outdated and the elevator probably will be broken but that's part of the charm. The park royale across the street is newer and pricier but seems generic. YG is more likely to be memorable. Walk to downtown is short.

Stayed here twice whilst on a tour, 2nd room (at front with balcony) was definitely better than the 1st one at the rear, not sure how they were graded. Unfortunately on 2nd visit electricity and water went off for an elongated period (hours), alas whilst my partner was in the shower with shampoo covered hair (moral never travel in the 3rd world without torch and bottled water !) Breakfast not too bad but could have done without the "live" music.
The location is OK but literally just the wrong side of the tracks to be good.
Staff were very pleasant and welcoming, even if they couldn't tell me when power and water would be restored

Room Tip: Try and get one at ther front, not too high up as the lift can be dodgy

Lovely friendly and helpful staff. They make you very welcome and nothing is too much trouble. Nice breakfasts with live music, and a wedding party going on in the function suite next door! Quaint old building with lots of corridors and nooks and crannies, and the style of a bygone era, needs a bit of TLC and maintenance. Good location, in quiet part of town, but within easy walking distance of centre and Scott s Market. Swimming pool is very welcome after a hot day's site seeing.
Stayed there on 2 occasions and both rooms different and quite spacious. Loved the sign ''walking up stairs is good for your health'!

It is true that the hotel could use a bit of paint but if you are looking for the colonial feel then this is the perfect place to stay. I think we should encourage staying in these old typical hotels in such a beautiful country like Myanmar... but this is definitely not a hotel for the people that like the modern chain hotels.
The rooms are very spacious and well equiped.
I stayed there twice in 2 different rooms and they were both clean and comfortable. Staff are kind and discreet.
The pool however is not in a usable state

From the Colonial era, and located right next door to the British consular residence. This one has seen nothing but minimal maintenance since 1939 and as such resembles a Soviet-style hotel -- with all its charms and ideosyncrasies. Like a morning wedding banquet going on in front of your very eyes while you enjoy breakfast by yourself staffed by about a dozen attendants. Or while you hike up a stairway because a sign on the elevator says "out of order" and you see another sign saying ''walking up stairs is good for your health." Special! Stayed in the Presidential Suite (one of four of them) which was in perfect nick. A huge room (two actually), all
with heavy wood (colonial?) furniture and red velvet covering the four windows. Strong air conditioners. A great bargain at 85 usd procured through local travel agent. The suites are #201, 202, 301, 302. The 02's in the back a bit quietier and don't get the light from over the transom door window. This was a very well-built building, with a ton of marble in the bath. Saw some of the other rooms and they were not all in such a good state. The gym is a real bonus. Though not new, all the equipment you need. Plus a trainer, a real gent. Pool is something you will recoil from instinctively, but the grounds are pleasant. A soccer game seems to happen in the front driveway every afternoon. Join in if you're inclined. Located across the street from the Park Royal and the Thamada restaurant, so good food options close, although the Hotel has a viable and inexpensive snack menu. As for the staff...it is not good. Totally unsupervised and unprofessional, though in fairness most are kids. Worst was the maintenance person (who doubled as security guard) who hopped up barefoot on the sink to replace bathroom lightbulb, toes seeking purchase amongst the toiletries. A horror to behold. Forget about internet here: no matter what they tell you, it isn't working.
