          location as only good thing ”

          i think if u are only looking yo visit the big pagoda, which os just around the corner, its not worth a stay here. Room is super simple, tiny window, mattress was uncomfortable and old, sheets rather grey than white, bathroom tiny and not really clean.. moldy everywhere, breakfast same basic as everywhere im Myanmar, staff was good though, all in all... the location gives it 1 reason to stay but sure not value for money i feel

          The Staff is Beyond Kindness”

          At the beginning we just booked for one night and at the check-in time, the room was upgraded for free. We then book for other 2 nights, and get once again the coupon for free drink and room upgrade with a discount. We read a lot of bad review about the rooftop but once we get there, we totally cannot understand what people were talking about. The rooftop it's so nice and comfy with a stunning view of the Pagoda. You can enjoy the view while relaxing and drinking one of their amazing juice. In the end, the last day, we also had a late check-out option, for free. What else to say... Absolutely a great experience!

          Near to famous shwedagon pagoda but far from downtown. Great rooftop and very nice breakfast. Clean. Early check in arrangement is available. Staff is attentive.

          Staff not polite, currency exchange scam”

          The reception area is dirty. Conversion rates used are there to trick you. Bar prices are all in dollars and about four times the normal price. Staff not behaving in a professional manner. Please note the hotel has a warning sign for customer who are going to write a review with a score below their current one. They offer cash back and discounts for you not to write a negative review. This is not a fair practise and creates a false picture of what you actually get. I don t recommend.

          Perfect Stay!”

          Merchant Art is a perfect base to make your way to Shwedagon Pagoda during sunrise as it is just 10 minutes away by foot. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful in attending to our requests, and the rooftop deck had great views of Shwedagon as well. The room was comfy with great beds, excellent Wifi and air-conditioning. If there's one thing to nitpick about, it will be that the shower and toilet area should be better separated out so that taking a shower will not leave the toilet completely wet. Nevertheless, great value for the price with an excellent location and amazing service! Wish we had a longer time at Merchant Art :)
