Hotel was clean, friendly, accessible to all major sites. Breakfast was adequate, location very safe ,superior room was a corner room .ac was great, room was quiet. We were celebrating 44th wedding anniversary and hotel had beautiful cake and champaigne waiting for us. Nice surprise. We arrived after midnight and hotel was waiting for us. Very reassuring in new city. In 2 weeks in country we used hotel 3 times as base for in country travel .our issue came when we asked for assistance in arranging bus to Ngwe Saung . We were told no bus for day we needed it . We had reservations and needed to get there. We asked about car and driver for round trip( 5 hour trip one way) they found car and driver 350.00 USD. We hesitated but agreed when told again no bus when we need to go.we arived without incident at destination and soon met traveler who also just arrived by bus from Yangon.acbus, ,lunch break ,2 toilet stops in 5 hours...cost 10.00USD. We were very upset to say the least. After returing to yangon 3 days later. The hotel ofered no explanation,and acted like they had no idea what weweretalking about. There was NO.LANGUAGE ISSUE...350.00 USD vs 10.00 USD. When we asked other drivers in taxiswe were given price consistantly of 200.00 USD. QUITEa markup for hotel especially when bus was only 10.00 USD.. THIS TOO BAD toto have this happen especially since all else was good .
