It's the staff that made this place. The hotel overall is looking a little tired, but the rooms are nice (we got a superior room at $70). The food in the restaurant was surprisingly good, given the decor it wasn't expected. The reality is Myanmar is struggling with the influx of tourists, there are more tourists than there are rooms at certain times of the year and this has driven the price up. It's just the reality of being there so in the cities you pay more than what it would be worth in the west.
However the staff on the desk were outstanding. As we were travelling independently over high season we had really struggled to make bookings before we arrived in the country. Meant we were constantly having to ring ahead. They were fantastic as they were very keen to help, their English was pretty good and their advice was great. They organised a taxi for us to take us around all the sites the next day, our plan would have only taken half a day, they knew this so added other sites that filled the day up with places we hadn't chosen (because we thought we would be stretched timewise) and what they added was fantastic. So glad we went with the flow with their local knowledge.
Nothing was too hard and the staff massively contributed towards a fantastic first day in Myanmar.
Wish we had used the pool, it was the last one we saw in the country.
