Reasonable, good location, embarrassing toilet
Papaya milk shakes, ambient music, central location
Ideal location in the central area, with markets, restauarants and the sights all in walking distance. Breakfast was fine for a small hotel and the staff in the restaurant and elsewhere were fine. I liked the restaurant with its trendy decor and good mix of ambient and other music. The bedroom was a reasonable size but -- and this is a big but - the toilet and the only window were behind a screen that folded in and out. Why couldn't a proper toilet have been put behind a door, perhaps swapped with the shower?Rather embarrassing, even for us, a long-married couple. Don't take your girlfriend here for a romantic getaway, if you're prone to farting. Our shower kept overflowing into the bedroom, too. But it was value for the money we paid.

Basic hotel but great location
location, location, location
East Hotel is not a boutique hotel - but it is a good average hotel. The best thing is the location, walking distance to many sights and restaurants, and with taxi's always outside. It's also only max 40mins to the airport even when traffic is busy (10mins at night). We had a retro concept deluxe room as a friend who had stayed there said it was much better than the concept deluxe. Certainly the room was a good size, with a safe, wardrobe, small desk and decent bed. Air con was very efficient. Bathrooms were ok - in our first room (2nd floor) we had great water pressure; not so much in our 2nd room on the 7th floor. Walk in shower, toilet and wash basin. Hot water always available. In one room the bathroom was only separated from the main room by a screen and the shower looked on to the bed so make sure you are very friendly if you are sharing a room! However a couple of things really let the hotel down: - mosquito's: Not much you can do about them outside, but the breakfast room was full of them, and the first bedroom we had was full of them (it was in the building next door to the main hotel). Take coils to burn and repellant. - breakfast: fairly average, food on the buffet didn't look too fresh but we ate it and no problems. Plenty of juice (not fresh though) and tea/coffee. They also offer eggs/pancakes from a menu but on our 2nd visit we had to ask for the menu, no staff offered and they were slow to clear the tables etc. - check out: the staff told us the hotel was not full and so we asked to check out at 2pm (vs 12pm). They told us no way, and they didn't even have anywhere else to shower or freshen up for our flight. Other than that the staff were very friendly and made restaurant reservations for us, got us taxi's etc. - value: Hotel is way over priced compared to other SE Asian cities, but probably a fair price for Yangon. Don't expect to get what you would for this money in e.g. Hanoi or Bangkok though.

Great location and staff
Quality of staff; central Yangon location; good breakfast dishes
Very helpful staff at check-in and check-out and with advice/directions etc. in between. Simple but very enjoyable breakfast buffet. Easy to do business from. Central and convenient. Wi-fi on the 8th floor was not so great but in the dining area it was fine to work with.

Right in the middle of the business district
Proximity, staff,
Decent hotel, right across the road from the Traders hotel. The East hotel rooms were well appointed, but being very close to the busy street, can tend to be noisy at times. The price is definitely expensive for this standard of hotel, but in Yangon, every hotel is expensive, most of them would go at half the price they charge, if it was in any other city in Asia. A good 20 minute walk to the Schwedagon pagoda, which was a truly remarkable place, a must see in Yangon. Overall, friendly staff, who are very helpful, and genuinely care for their guests.

interesting city and country
location, friendly staff, free water
The hotel is ok except for the toilet and bathroom, which are in open connection to the room. There is only a folding door and NO privacy. The elevator is claustrofobically small, and with much waiting time. I had to climb the stairs to 4th floor several times every day. Not funny.
