Enjoyed a good stay here. The rooms are well decorated with good furniture and comfy beds. The garden is pleasant and the golden glow of the Shwedagon pagoda is a stunning sight in the evening. Staff were friendly and efficient.
The hotel needs to work to improve its wifi strength as at certain times, and particularly in areas of the lobby, it can be near impossible to access the internet. At other times the signal strength is ok.
One improvement to the bathrooms would be the addition of locally sourced natural soap as opposed to the current chemical liquid soap on offer (the dispensers didn't work).
All in all a good stay and would recommend. Negotiate on price!
