Friendly service, great name
Clean, fairly central location, had duvet not just sheets
quick easy check in. requested a double room but was given a twin, but have come to accept this is fairly standard in myanmar. bathroom was clean with great pressure from the shower. had a view of the golden pagoda (just about). staff were helpful. was easy to get a taxi and only about 2000 kyat to go anywhere. breakfast was fairly poor but have also come to expect this. also i was ill the day that we arrived at the panda hotel and went straight to bed upon arrival. i woke up an hour or so later and thought the hotel was on fire as the smell of petrol was vey strong in the air. but it turned out to be mosquito bombs, so not good for people with asthma.

Average hotel - good for passing through
Comfortable mattresses
the hotel is average and there is not very much that stands out. hotel is not too far from all the major sightseeing points. short taxi ride away from everything.

friendly staff and good service
good breakfast
We stayed at Panda Hotel for one week and we like the breakfast very much. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and they helped us to have boiled eggs for the baby. The staff at front desk even called to check the restraunt information for us. They cleaned up the room quickly and you can always get two bottles of water for free everyday. A lot of locals know the hotel, and you just tell the taxi drive the name and they will take you there. Definitely will stay again at this hotel.

The biggest hotel room ever!
Friendly staff, lots of hot water,fridge, safe,A/C that wasn't too loud, and nice big rooms.
As we had read and heard that hotels in Myanmar were hard to get, we felt lucky that we were able to gat a room. The hotel is very dated...60's, and over priced, however it was clean, the staff were very friendly, and the included breakfast was great. We were a short taxi ride from downtown, maybe 10 minutes, depending on traffic. Cost anywhere from 1500-3000 K, depending on time of day, or driver. There were 2 great restaurants on the next street that were wonderful...YKKO and New Doreen. Also two big air conditioned shopping centers, that is an easy leisurely 10 min. walk. The one negative thing was that they fumigated one night, and it was very scary as we were not told beforehand. We were in our room when this obnoxious smell started, and when we looked out in the hall it almost looked like smoke. We went down to the lobby, and staff had tissues to their noses, and assured us that it would be finished soon. We were on the 11th floor, and there was a big wedding banquet the next evening on the 12th floor, I think they were fumigating that.

Large rooms with big windows, but outdated, dumpy
takes credit card over internet, but pricey for value
Panda is tired older hotel with outdated furniture and dumpy bathroom. Threadbare carpet in halls. Buffet breakfast edible but not stellar. Location in general OK, but immediate surroundings unattractive. One redeeming quality of our 5th floor, west-facing room is that floor to ceiling windows looked out at treetop level, giving feeling of forest privacy.

Comfortable hotel in an excellent location
Comfortable rooms, helpful staff, good location and a reasonable price
I stayed here twice when visiting Burma and found it a pleasant place to stay. The breakfasts are rather limited and the dining room lacks character but this place is real value for money and the staff could not be more helpful.

Decent quality hotel but not in a great area
Everything worked, staff friendly and competent
Positin is not very salubrious, but perfectly safe. Good position from which to visit major sights. Taxis are readily available.

A typical 2-3 star hotel with basic necessities
Big room and facing Shwedagon Pagoda
Limited breakfast buffet menu. Friendly staff. Walk abit further to take a cab, fare cheaper.

Adequate but overpriced hotel in Yangon
Relatively easy to check into without lots of advance notice
Have stayed at the Panda a few times. For Yangon an OK hotel, a bit overpriced - though most hotels for foreigners, -- but perfectly adequate and while old -- in ok shape. Food is OK, nice restaurant around corner and while out of main downtown area relatively close and only a 2000 kyat (or less if you can negotiate) taxi from most places in city center.
