My partner & I stayed here as part of our Intrepid Travel organised trip to Burma. We had no choice of hotel, as they booked it for us.
We stayed for two separate trips; one at the start of our holiday, the second at the end.
The first room on the tenth floor (Rm 1014 I think) faced towards the river and had a view of the slums nearby..not a great first impression. The windows didn't close, so the mosquito's were free to join us in bed each night which was delightful (especially I as I sat reading about all the diseases I could catch). The air con was rubbish (not cold, very noisy), the room was dull, the shower was weak, the room was basically dated and I'd give it 2/10.
The second room we had was on the eighth floor (Rm 805), which faced to the front of the hotel and gave views of the old trains outside and allowed us to listen to all the car horns at night. It was wonderful... To be fair, this room had a good shower and was much cleaner than the first. We were meant to have a double bed, but what we actually got was two singles pushed together, so it wasn't the most comfortable couple of nights. This room gets a 5/10 from me - better, but room for improvement.
The breakfast service is quite basic; dry bread each day and stale cereals. UHT milk as well, which tastes truly awful in tea & on cereals at the best of times. I guess they can't offer fresh milk as the electricity doesn't stay on long enough to cool the fridges! Don't get stuck in the lifts during a power cut on a hot & sunny day; you'll cook!
The only good thing which I must mention was the good service from all of the staff. From the helpful Security guard to the efficient and tidy room cleaning teams, I couldn't find fault with the staff. They clearly work very hard in difficult conditions and I was impressed. It's a shame their management don't give them a hotel to match their service standards - the staff should come to London and show some of the so-called posh hotels here what decent service is!
