Reviewed February 16, 2014

Hotel located on very dark street with not many shops in the area. Front entrance of hotel looked inviting but things quickly went downhill. We had reservation for standard double bed room on top floor. We were given room 107 with 2 metal cots and directly off the dining room. Curtains on window appeared to be a bed sheet. You needed a hazmat suit to take a shower. Curtain was so full of mold it was disgusting. We refused this room and after an hour wait we were taken to another room on the top floor. Upon a close inspection we found the bed to be ok, clean linen and clean bathroom, wifi had strong signal, t.v. was ok and the a/c worked well however no windows and top floor has no doors on the fire escape which meant the mosquitos entered the hotel at will. The room had no safe and door latch was not up to par. As it was late and we were only staying one night and since the second room was much cleaner than the first, we stayed ($60 night).
Breakfast was also a disappointment..buffet style with only western items being pre cooked eggs and toast.
Stayed in several hotels in Myanmar, this was the worst. Recommend you stay elsewhere

I stayed in this Hotel for 2 nights (4.-6.1.2014) the Price was 49$ per night,Doubleroom with breakfast, this was more or less o.k., i made a Reservation When i left on 6th of Jan for the 25-27th of Jan....When i arrived on the the 25th i was told, the Price is Not 49$ anymore but 120$ per night for the SAME ROOM! Hotel Windsor is a ** Hotel on European Standards .....and 120$ per Night IS far too much, i moved Down town and stayed in a guesthouse WITH SINGELROOM BUT Shared Barthroom for 10$ the night, my advice: TAKE CARE WITH PRICES IN MYANMAR

Room Tip: Check the Price carefully!!

We stayed at Windsor Hotel: very well located, very quiet, clean but it is a scam. We stay there a first night when we got back from sittwe and we liked it so we decided to book a room there for our last day before flying home. We turned up there with a reservation (booking.com) and we were told that the hotel was fully booked and that they had no room for us!!!! The owner of that hotel owns another hotel called "MGM" which is not the same standard. (dirty, poor location and I have doubt about safety and security there). So Winsor hotel does overbooking and them try to transfer Customer to the other hotel.While we were waiting at the reception another couple experienced the same problem and I am sure they are many more...

We booked for three nights with booking.com
The reservation has been made correctly but, when we arrived at the hotel they said us: Sorry but the hotel is full. So, they offered us a room in an other hotel MGM (The owner of these hotels is the same).
In MGM hotel there was a lot of noise. Every night there is karaoke until 2 pm on the 11th floor
So, for us it was all a disaster and a lack of profesionality.
Please, be prudent with Windsor and MGM.

Found the Windsor Hotel on the web. Great find. Good value for the 3 of us. Great location too being just 2000 chat taxi fare from CBD. Quiet, had great sleeps. Internet is very slow though but it was fine for the basics. Good supermarket in a mall that just down the road too.

1 st night in Yangon and booked Windsor . I believe it is one of the few that does online bookings. Friendly staff and the building has large rooms and hot showers. Aircon was working and a bar fridge to keep things cool. Nothing flash by all means but for the price a pretty good midrange. All night security and I'm told the breakfast is great. Clean beds firm mattress not much more you could want of a room. Check out the rooms higher up as the ground floor rooms can be a bit noisy.

We were finding it hard to find a hotel in our budget. This was the cheapest we could find with availability. We booked 2 rooms. Compared to other hotels in SE Asia for this price it wasn't that great. The rooms are old and rundown and probably would be a lot better if the carpet was pulled out. In saying that, the sheets and towels were clean and the beds pretty comfortable. Breakfast was decent with mostly Asian food. The staff were polite and helped when we asked but didn't go out of their way. It is about a 15-20 min walk to the Shwe Dagon Pagida which is a must see. To the market it is bet to take a taxi which are easy to find outside the hotel. There are a few restaurants around as well as a big supermarket on the corner. For the prices in yangon it was ok.
