Our tour group was booked at the rather tired and dated Asia Plaza Hotel. Our first room was excellent but the second needed new carpet and a definite upgrade. Not the fault of the hotel, but the prayers and chanting that went on all night through a loudspeaker outside meant it was almost impossible to sleep even though the beds were comfortable! On the plus side, the staff at reception were incredibly helpful especially Nyi, we were able to leave luggage there while we were travelling and the internet worked slowly but was generally OK. There was a very good choice of food at breakfast with fantastic views of the city from the diningroom level but taking the lift there seemed to take forever.
The hotel is well situated and an easy walk to the markets, railway station, money changers and restaurants. However if you do take a taxi they're supposedly the cheapest in Asia!
With new hotels planned for the city, Asia Plaza should definitely be looking to upgrade its facilities to keep up with the competition.More
