    Spotless very thoughtful, attentive,helpful staff”

    Gave me double room for ptice of a single. Took me to the railway Station to buy my ticket and to the platform it would be leaving from the next morning to be sure I knew where it was leaving from. I felt like I was home here and the shared bath was spotless. I left a bag there to pick up at a later date as well as laundry. Good home base and value in Yangon. Breakfast was very basic, toast eggs fruit and coffee. All in all a good experience.

    Been here now several times and will come back when I return to Yangon next time. Its the friendly owner and staff which makes this place so special. Very clean room with comfortable bed , good AC , fast reliable Wifi , different breakfast every day. Location is perfect if you want to be near Sule-Pagoda , the railwaystation and lots of restaurants and teahouses.

    Friendly staff, location, comfy beds

    Overall Good place to stay. Not good for handicapped people, because of the very steep stairs going up to the reception and more up to the rooms. Shower pressure not good. We bought bus ticket at the reception. Well organized and very reliable. Friendly, helpful and honest people. Would stay there again.

    1. Courteous and helpful staff with a warm smile. 2. Strategic location within walking distance to place of interest and shopping. 3. A simple and nice breakfast

    It is definitely worth to stay in this small hotel. All staffs are very kind and helpful. If you had any problem, the receptionist, auntie and the young boy will assist and service immediately. No place to hang your clothes in the room and I did not like the toilet. There was a power outrage at midnight. Check at reception, saw 2 staff manning at the gate entrance. Bravo to the excellence security here. Breakfast of butter bread with egg and fried mee with fruits on alternate day are tasty and fresh. A hot water dispenser is available at the lobby. Improve the Wifi speed and you will love this simple and clean place more. I will definitely stay again but not in the same room.

    location, service, free breakfast

    Great location near a Sule Paya and a major city park surrounded by colonial architecture. Many restaurants all around. Staff were great and went the extra mile. Despite a 12pm check out time and a 9:30 pm flight, I was offered a shower if I needed one and a place to nap before I went to the airport.

    Small but very clean, with helpful staff”

    It has a very good location, but as many parts of the city the street is rather messy. The inside of hotel is very clean, and the staff are all kind and helpful. We took a deluxe room with a private bathroom, which was clean and nice but it was quite narrow and small (but I presume that many hotels are like this in Yangon). We had a nice stay here overall.

    Great price for location, nice people”

    . Stayed three nights and plan on staying there before I fly out again. It is family owned and the mother speaks the best English. The others get by. breakfast is mostly Asian style (mohinga, Chinese pork bun, fried egg on rice stir fry). The room I stayed in was a very low price (about half what I had planned on paying, and barely more than hostels) but was an interior room without windows. That proved tricky during power outages before backup power/generators switched on. They had flashlights that they would use to help me get inside the room and find my own flashlight. As well as being near Bogyoke Market, the street has lots of electronic stores and street vendors, Japanese and mixed Asian restaurants, interesting street food, bakeries, and a legitimate walk-in foot/shoulder massage place. I booked the same day in the morning, but then had a trip interruption and had to change in the afternoon to arrive the next day. They were willing to accommodate the change

    Cheap, Comfortable Place to Crash in Downtown Yang”

    1) Good A/C, 2) Attentive staff, 3) Good location

    The hotel is clean, although the stairs will be a challenge if you have an injury or disability. Room was quite large with a nice view to the street, which wasn't too terribly noisy. Breakfast is meh, but included in the price of your stay. This place is close to lots of attractions and good restaurants.

    1.location- near train station 2. excellent svc 3. value for money

    We checked into Royal Star immediately from a gruelling 20hour train ride from Bagan. It is just opposite the train station. The guest hse is easy to find and situated along a row of streets with english road signboards. The innkeepers were most helpful and checked us in early. The guesthouse is small and on second floor. There is no lift to the guesthouse but they have an attendant who will assist with baggages. The innkeeper speaks very good English and gave us advice on the best places to eat local food. Sule Shangrila is just a few blocks away for a luxurious meal. The streets are safe with many interesting stalls. We enjoyed ourselves very much.

    Staff Location & Cleanliness

    The rooms are basic but clean and well kept. The breakfast is average (bananas, coffee, toast & egg). The hotel is located close to the Train station and the Sule Paya and city centre. The lady on the front desk was extremely helpful in getting me a train ticket when all trains were full. She made many phone calls on my behalf and was polite and eager to help. Thank you!!!

    Location is near the Bogyoke market, train station and Sule Pagoda. The staff are helpful, friendly and the front desk girl can speak good English. My room is clean, with TV, sofa, cabinet,bed upstair

    I checked out in the morning and left my bag at the reception area before sightseeing within Yangon. Went back in the afternoon and they were kind enough to lend me a towel and let me use my former room for a while and the bathroom without additional charge, to freshen up before leaving for a night bus trip to Bagan. My room though was right next to the reception area so it's easy to hear guests coming in and out of the guesthouse. The bathroom was clean but it had that musty smell because of the lack of exhaust fans. Same with the towels, which smelled like they were folded and locked inside a cabinet while still a little moist. Other than these, the guesthouse had a good service, in general.

    Used Royal Star for final night in Myanmar. Good location, walking distance to Scotts Market, Sule Pagoda etc. V reasonable and much cheaper than other hotels in the area. Helpful staff, they even made a small breakfast for me as I had to leave early morning for my flight. Very clean guest house, shared facilities; my room was on 2 floors with lounge area downstairs and mattress upstairs. Don't be put off by steep flight of stairs you have to climb. Guest house did not answer my emails in advance but were very helpful when I was there. Would recommend to others.

    Home from home, treated us as if we were family!”

    Staff, staff, staff

    Gloria, her family and the staff were so very very kind we did not want to leave. They treated us as of we were family and nothing was too much trouble. They looked after our bags whilst we travelled around Burma for 3 weeks and they even posted our postcards that we had forgotten to post. In a chaotic city like Yangon it is great to find a little bit of solace which is so centrally located. As we did not know what to expect about Yangon and Burma as a whole it was such a pleasure to be greeted by such friendly, helpful people. I would recommend anyone travelling to Yangon to use Royal Star Guest House as a base. Gloria thank you so very much! x
