stayed there just a night on our first day in burma. staff were very kind and friendly, went out of their way to find us a taxi and locate the restaurant we wanted to go to (green elephant). we were able to change money at the hotel too (9,250 kyat per USD).
the hotel building itself is nice on the outside, since its converted from an old brewery. unfortunately the inside is not done up in a similar style - its just like any other budget hotel with cheap carpet, cheap linen, basic bathroom with cheap amenities.
they could make a bit more of an effort to know the local area better, ie have a few suggestions for nearby eating options to advise guests about, provide simple map showing relative location (eg i discovered the next morning that its actually very close to the Strand/ waterfront)
given the current hotel shortage in yangon i guess cant complain about the price, however i expected better for USD 70.
the one thing that was good was the internet, btw. wireless which worked well in our room (ground floor, behind reception, with a window overlooking the street in front of the hotel)
staying at classique inn on our return to yangon, also for USD 70/nite, hopefully the comfort compensates for the distance
