Very strategic location, in the central of the city, just beside Sule Paya. The price of the room has been revised again, as of 1 Jan, it is US$23/35/50 for S/D/T. There is NO ROOM for price negotiation, if you walk in solo without reservation, and they are running out of single room, you just have to pay double room price even you are alone. Burmese rather let the room empty the whole night, than giving you discounted rate (different approach). I also saw the owner turned away 3 Japanese who ask for $5 discount on triple room, late at night.
Room is small, clean, mostly without window but with strong ventilation fan, air-cond & hot water (but not the single Room 605) working well becoz they have owned-power generator, room with small tv, a bottle of drinking water. Simple breakfast included.
Have little argument about reservation when I returned after traveled around Myanmar, where the lady simply erased my whole reservation, although I just requested her to cancel 1 out of 3 days. She was pressing me to pay double room price initially, but got soften after I managed to show her the initial email reservation. SO, RESERVATION is IMPORTANT IF U TRAVEL ALONE for this hotel
Besides this, the rest are working very fine.
Pros: Location is superb, free wifi at ground floor (though slow), owner is helpful in answering your travel related question
Cons: Reservation system is very messy, just pencil writing. So, better keep an email as proof.
