“Mixed feelings”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

We are 4 adults staying overnight in Yangon for the first night of our trip on 13 April and last night of out trip on 21 April. We have booked two standard rooms at Clover City Hotel and were pleasantly surprised to discover that the hotel has upgraded us to stay at their newly open Clover City Plus hotel just a couple doors away.

During the first night of our stay, the rooms are spotless and we are quite happy about it. We had our dinner at Traders Hotel which was fantastic and very convenient as it's located just round the corner.

Unfortunately when we checked in again for the last night of our trip, we found the bedroom floor and bathroom a bit dirty. It is definitely not a big deal but the big disappointment is when we discovered two big cockroaches in one of the room. Thank god there was none in the other room. We showed the roaches to the housekeeping and informed the front office staff about it when we checked out. The front office staff just laughed about it....I'm not sure if they understood what we told them.

However I would not fault the front office staff as they have been nothing but polite and courteous to us from the time we checked in till check-out. Even the bell-boys, restaurant manager are extremely nice and eager to please.

By the way don't expect too much for breakfast...it is very simple but adequate.

This hotel is fine for an overnight stay but not more than 1 night.

Located in a grubby, but not uninteresting, street behind Traders this is a fairly cramped place. Rooms are small but clean and comfortable and are fine for a short stay where you are out and about all day and just need a place to shower, change and sleep. The breakfast area is also quite tight and the set breakfast is OK but a bit weird. As in many places in Myanmar they seem to be hugely overstaffed.
Under-supply of hotel rooms in Yangon means that the cost is relatively very high - we paid £70 per night using booking.com. A better place, and with a pool, near Bangkok airport on the way home cost about £27.
Wi-fi was only in the lobby/breakfast area and was erratic.
Given that the places to visit in Yangon are quite widely scattered so you will need to get taxis (very inexpensive) several times a day you might prefer to stay a little to the north of the downtown area. We stayed at the Alfa Hotel later in our trip - $100 per night (so more or less the same as the Clover City) and we had a better breakfast, there's a rooftop bar with great views and we could see the Shwedagon Pagoda from our room - ask for a room as high as you can.

This little hotel in the small street behind Traders Hotel is half the price of that place, - it is an economy hotel , rooms pretty spartan but very clean, We were on top floor, showers never ran warm but it didn't matter, it was so hot! Air con worked, as did TV, Wifi so slow!
Cooked breakfast hilarious! but fruit, juice and toast fine.
Over staffed, all eager to help, English limited but sufficient.
We stayed a week, during which time they opened a sister hotel four or five doors down, Clover Hotel City Centre Plus!
We used Traders hotel, round the corner as our meeting place, drinks or coffee, and fine dining.
Location is superb, three blocks from Sule Pagoda, St Mary's Cathedral, The big market.
But be warned, take brand new US dollars to pay. There is an ATM behind the Baptist church over the road from the Sule Cathedral, which gives crisp new local notes.

Room Tip: Top floor good views, long wait for lift though. No noise.

Good location, but so very expensive for Myanmar and terrible, terrible breakfast. The room are small, but really clean. Staff tries very hard to be helpful, but English is problem (not only here). Wifi works only sometimes.

Hotel rates in Yangon have tripled or even more in the last year. There is a huge influx of visitors (of course, of which I was one), and not enough rooms. So the law of supply and demand is heavily in favor of those farsighted proprietors who opened hotels before this year.

I stayed here in two different rooms in two visits to Yangon in February 2013. Both rooms were perfectly acceptable. Clean, well maintained. Everything worked. So no complaints there. As a business traveler, don't need or expect much else.

Internet was spotty and unreliable, but that's the case everywhere right now. This will change soon, undoubtedly. (For good internet, you can go to the Trader's hotel cafe one block over and buy a $4 cup of coffee. That place had the only decent internet I found in 2 weeks in the country.)

This quality hotel elsewhere in SE Asia costs about $40-$50. In Yangon, it was $140. So, there's that.

Location is good, in downtown Yangon, you can walk to the Scott market, plenty of restaurants and shops nearby. Staff is nice, and tries to be helpful, if English is poor.

One suggestion: don't go for breakfast, go to the tea shop right around the corner on the way to Scott market, fantastic Chinese buns and decent sweet coffee.)

Room Tip: I saw no difference between Deluxe and Superior rooms.

The room was very small. enough for the essentials But the room ,linen, and towels were exceptionally clean and in good condition. The air conditioning and TV and WIFI all worked.
The service was also exceptionally friendly and professional. A new hotel which I hope will prosper and set the standard for mid range hotels

Room Tip: There's a upmarket hotel very near by which will serve day guests drinks by the pool :)))!!!

Given the fact that there is a shortage of hotel rooms in Yangon and therefore the prices are relatively high Clover City Center Hotel is a good choice. The rooms are small but have everything you could need. The hotel is clean. The breakfast is simple but otherwise Ok. The staff is helpful and friendly. The location is fine.
The breakfast room is too small for the number of guests
