Official rating is 4*', but don't equate to a western rating. This is a perfectly adequate, I exciting hotel, that would deserve 3* by any other measure. Excellently located for the Shwedagon pagoda, with some views from the higher floors which pick out the illuminated pagoda at night. Floors 4 & 5 for best views.
The hotel is a short taxi ride away from 'downtown' Sule Pagoda and markets. Shopping malls, with chemists also a short taxi ride away. Taxis are cheap!
There is a swimming pool and fitness centre...both more functional than pretty. Pool is a concrete oasis.
The bedrooms are functional, with rather hard beds. Like much of Myanmar double beds are actually two singles pushed together. Bathrooms, are also functional...no big fluffy towels here. You might also want your own toiletries, though the basics are provided.
Importantly, the aircon seems effective ( we stayed twice in different rooms...and aircon is essential!)
Restaurant is pretty good, with typical Thai/Chinese/Myanmar dishes available. Tasty and reasonable. Breakfasts are the predictable offerings, but reasonable.
Money cHangers in the hotel which is handy...and a bit of fun to watch then compete (bizarrely) for custom...they offer identical rates.
Wifi is available in the reception area only, but it's free.
