I was told that this was the best hotel in town by a local lawyer I met on the train. I was pleased to see that the foyer and reception was modern and clean. I booked for one night. Very fortunate.
First, the electricals were not working in the entire room as I got in. The staff tried fiddling with ever power supply point but he was clueless. So I asked I I could change the room. He spoke to someone on the phone but went back to fiddling. I decided to go down and ask if I could get another room. There was no answer. Housekeeping staff turned up and fixed the problem after much time had passed.
Went into have a hot shower after long train journey and the water pipe burst. Literally had to run down again half wet (must have looked comical and crazy at the same time) and inform them. Housekeeping again had to come and fix the problem that took awhile. Next was the flush that was leaking water all over the bathroom. By then all I wanted was to have a shower, some food and hit the sack. Turned on the bedside table lamp that was not working. So they obviously don't check these things before checking someone in.
Was so knackered and hit the sack. Bed was comfy, large and I slept well.
But staff are not that friendly or helpful due to lack of knowledge. Breakfast was cold toast (Burmese trend ). I was quite happy to take an early checkout
Hotel looks great from outside but maintenance is really really terrible so just not a relaxing experience.
