This small, city centre hotel offers a good value way to stay in the centre of Yangong (just across the road from the Traders Hotel. The Aung San market is walking distance and the Sule Pagoda is visible at the end of the road if you look to the left as you come out the hotel.
Our room was high and at the back which meant it was quiet and, while the room arrangement was unusual in having the shower within the room and the loo in a recess behind the shower it was clean and met our needs for a few nights very well. There is a lift and were adjacent to a fire escape which is always reassuring.
We found the staff friendly and helpful and breakfast in the small seating area facing the street was tasty and fresh.
When leaving our pick up was very early (before the restaurant was open) but the reception desk was manned and we were given a packed breakfast to eat as we travelled.
This hotel was MUCH less costly than Traders and felt it to be great value.
My score of four stars is given against other, similar grade hotels and reflects the slightly unusual room layout. I warmly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a good, central base at a sensible price.
