          We wish to compliment your hotel staff for their wonderful service. Thank you for making it such a comfortable stay at your hotel. I was there for four days with my family members and for all those days we were attended with utmost attention and warmth. We were impressed to see the prompt service extended to us. Every need was catered with perfection making us feel so important. We would like to compliment your entire staff especially Madaya and also one more gentleman who was on duty with her most of the time for their professionalism. With smiles on their faces, we have been really very impressed with their service. We would like to visit your hotel again for this outstanding experience.

          Great hotel”

          We stayed in Room 502 in May 2019. The room was lovely; spacious, clean and well laid out. Bed is comfy, good power to the shower with tropical head and standard options. The hotel has a nice terrace at the top with a small dip pool and restaurant. The hotel is located close to the pagoda, within walking distance, it's between the airport and downtown. Staff were lovely and attentive. We realised our room didn't have a kettle at 4:30am when we got up for a flight to Bagan so requested one but it never arrived. We saw housekeeping sleeping as we checked out.

          A nice hotel for a stopover. ”

          We needed a hotel for 2 nights in Yangon while we visited some friends and this hotel.ticked all the boxes for us. It was fairly easy to get to and it had a lovely room. The breakfast wasn't too bad either and it was close to some nice restaurant. As with most hotels in Myanmar the staff were so friendly and helpful.

          Was very happy with my stay. The room is very nicely decorated, the bathroom is great. View is nice even on the sides not facing the pagoda (low rise neighbourhood). Keep in mind : quite far from downtown but 5 min from Shwedagon. Thai restaurant on the opposite side of the street serves drinks and meals from 10 to 10. Regional Bistro is 4 minutes by foot. One thing to improve : Wifi. 2/2 is barely enough. One thing to get under control : laundry costs which are prohibitive (3x the rates of the closest laundry including delivery) Still, it was one the best stays I had in Yangon

          Our A/C didn’t work after the first day. After some time of explaining and waiting we were allowed to move to another room. That room‘s fridge and shower didn’t work. And it wasn’t cleaned up. But staff was willing to help with patience, exchanged the fridge, repaired the shower and cleaned the next day. So altogether it was a nice stay.

          Great hotel, nice stuff. The only downside was that the pool was not working and it was one of the main reasons to book it. They said they were cleaning it and it should be ready in the morning, in the morning they said in the afternoon and in afternoon tomorrow. Apart from that great stay, quiet, walk to Shwedagon 20 mins, plenty of local food outside.

          Almost good but..”

          Pro. 1) Location not too far from Shwe Da Gon, however, view claim that good see Pagoda is not expect. During others hotel more beautiful 2) Around Hotel safe, can walk at night and morning, local food and Asean food is easy to find, but hotel not close to main road. 3) Staff friendly, nice, can understand English. 4) Room 3.5 out of 5, not all clean in bathroom. Seeing hair from ex-guest. Cons: 1) For anyone who want to get in Gym, do not expect much. Room so smell and small. Facility only have 1 type/each. It mean, if you need to use running machine and have somebody exercise, you better do something else . 2) Rooftop, many morning not quite clean and staff not clean punctuality. For example, 8 am I still see many table with bottle of beers, cigarette, used tissue,etc on the table which may used by customers from last night.
