Low ceiling height”
Location and Staff
Hotel is a bit-run down but it is clean and the staff are friendly/helpful. The ceiling is very low in all rooms and would likely be an issue for any tall travelers. Overall the hotel is ok, but I will not continue to stay there for work trips.

nothing special. The street noise did bothered a bit due to single glass windows. So-so food, rooms and amenities. Elevator design with stops at mid-level between floors added a negative impression. Some staff were helpful, some not, but all were very gentle.

Friendly Hotel in Central Yangon”
Central location, Hospitality, Great Rooftop View
Great stay at Alfa Hotel. Friendly, helpful staff with excellent customer service - everything is delivered with a smile. Walking distance to Shwedagon Pagoda, Kandawgyi Lake, People's Park and Chinatown Market, but also has a perfect view of Shwedagon Pagoda from the rooftop bar "Sapphire Lounge" for those days where you just want to relax. The rooms were clean and comfortable, with hot water and good water pressure. There was wifi connection in the rooms but it was not very strong (it was stronger in the lobby or rooftop). Would highly recommend Alfa Hotel for anyone staying in Yangon.

Amazing Staff in the center of Yangon”
Friendly staff, proximity to Yangon sights, great view of Shwedagon Pagoda from Sapphire Lounge
I had an excellent experience at Alfa Hotel in Yangon. Though basic, the rooms were spacious and comfortable, with all necessary amenities, including in-room wifi. The staff at Alfa Hotel go above and beyond to make your stay perfect, from the management who were responsive to all of my e-mails prior to arrival, to the front desk staff who not only give you directions or call you a cab but are happy to give you restaurant recommendations, "insider tips" to the city, or how to tie a longyi. They also helped me to arrange a side trip to Kyaiktiyo Pagoda and Bago. Their rooftop bar is the perfect place to have a beer (or dinner) while watching the sun set behind Shwedagon Pagoda. Overall a very wonderful experience. I cannot praise Alfa Hotel highly enough.

Budget hotel in the middle of the city”
Location, Friendly staff
I have stayed in Alfa hotel a couple of times before as well. The only reason i stay in this hotel due to the location as its very close to the places i need to visit in Yangon. The hotel isn't too great but not bad also. The rooftop bar is good where you get a very nice view of the Shwedagon Pagoda in the night. The wifi speed is very low and generally very difficult to get a signal inside your room. The breakfast is also not very great. Since there aren't too many great options in Yangon currently at this price point, i think its a good choice in the price segment.

Price, rooms-szie, and the breakfast
It was OK, though the Travel Industry in Myanmar needs a lot of help in getting its staff to meet international travelers' needs. When I arrived, I only wanted to get online, though that was a difficult. Changed rooms, got online, but still very slow. This room did not (814) have hot water. Of course I asked the front desk about this, but no apologies were offered, just an oh, OK we'll fix it. On the last day, my 5th day, I had a hot shower before going to the airport.

Hotel location, easy get taxi, friendly staff.
We selected this hotel for its location. It's in walking distance both to Shwedagon Pagoda as well as Bogyoke Market and downtown areas. Very easy to get taxi in front of the hotel at any time. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The hotel bar on the rooftop has nice view of Schwedagon. Unfortunately, there was no hotel restaurant and we had to walk downtown for a decent restaurant which took some 10 minutes. Buffet breakfast was available in the hotel though of limited variety.

Comfortable and Convenient”
Location, Price and Service!
I was looking for a place that was conveniently located near the exhibition hall but doesn't charge crazy prices and then I came across Alfa Hotel. Through local knowledge I understand that this hotel has improved its standards since years back. I was fairly surprised at the amount of foreigner guests it caters too and how fluent the staffs are in English. Most of them have experiences working overseas and can answer most of the questions if not all about the area. There is quite a number of food stuff to eat around there and a market place that is great for shopping. Alot of 2nd hand items and jewellery at affordable prices. Definitely will return.

Would only stay here again in a pinch”
Friendly staff, okay location, fantastic view
The entire hotel has a musty smell, my room had ants crawling all over the desk and in the bathroom. In the rest of Asia, , but given the shortage of rooms in Yangon, prices are much higher here. The staff is friendly, with the exception of the 11am checkout, where they threatened to charge us a half day even after confirming a 12pm checkout. I would have expected a better breakfast, cleaner room, a more functional shower (clogged head with intermittent hot water and pressure), in room lock box and an actual king bed (I paid extra, but it was two twin beds pushed together) I've stayed in better hotels in Yangon for less money, but they were all booked up for this trip. The only highlight is its down the street from Papas Pizza, which has remarkable NY Style pizza... for those of us that live in Asia, it was a treat...
