    Decent budget option, but don't expect too much”

    Low price, fast internet, large room

    My room is very big, but there is only 1 air-con and the outside temperature is 38ºC so the room cools down very slowly. (I have to sit under the air-con constantly to cool myself down.) The air-con is connected to a surge protector, which delays the start of the air-con for 5 minutes after switching on. I find the mattress too soft and I have to sleep near the edge of the bed. Toilet looks old with some stains, but at least the electric water heater works perfectly. There are 2 rooms per floor and no lift, so those who live high up will have to climb lots of stairs. The free wifi is probably the best thing about this hotel. There are a couple of good Burmese and Thai restaurants around the hotel, and a CB bank ATM (Visa/Mastercard) around the corner. (Turn right from hotel, and right again at the main road) The nearest attraction is the famous Shwedagon Pagoda (10 min walk), but downtown is far (45 min walk). Taxis are cheap and plentiful, and most drivers speak some English, so take a taxi to downtown.

    Should not be in Agodas list over available hotels”

    it had 2 beds and 2 towels and aircon

    4 km outside city centre, very worn down, no hot water. This was not the type of hotell I would expect to find in agodas list. The original Tamada hotell is closed, due to remoddeling, this must be a replacement hotel. Not acceptable ! Please remove from You list untill the original Tamada hotel is available again

    Good location, basic but decent value.”

    Views over Shwe Dagon Pagoda and small friendly feeling.

    with scare rooms in yangon - prices are so high currently, so this was a good little find. location is very good, 10mins walk to shwe dagon and some nearby parks too. rooms are big, but fairly basic and clean. plumbing a bit hit and miss at times, but staff helpful and friendly. free wi-fi ok. drawback is no restaurant, with 2 local (pricey) and one expensive (mai thai) resturant next door, also note the street is noisy during the day with several car valetting shops.

    size of the room

    Although large, the room was far below standard. Doorlock did not work, plumbing in a very sorry state, no shower (a bucket of water to pour over you) No hot water. Very few restaurants in the area,however, taxi easy to get. Staff unable to understand and/or speak sufficient english to act as host in a hotel. We came a day later than our voucher was valid for and they charged US 30 for an extra night.

    Large dirty rooms in a difficult area, there is nothing around this hotel except a Thai restuarant down the road. There is no hot water and you can definately find better for the price. Most guesthouses are better.

    location, staff, large room

    the hotel is in bad condition. 7 floor, NO lift. You have to call them to get lower floor, but when i call them the answer only yes,yes and yes, and i still get the 6th floor. The room are spacious, you can fit 4 king bed in the room. the staff are nice and helpfull however know very limited english. good location, near Shwedagon, peoples park and myanmar culture centre (its like a small mall, many restaurants). My recommendation this hotel good for 1 night stay and only if you want to visit shwedagon pagoda.

    closely located to Shwedagon Pagoda

    The hotel is very old and not well kept, room was unacceptaby dirty and moldy. I am not very picky and I know that for a budget hotel in Yangon one cannot expect a fancy room but the conditions were unacceptable. I never checked out of a hotel earlier, but this time I had to.

    Location OK

    The rooms are really not in a good shape and not very clean (a few spiders in the bathroom...). The location is nice as you can walk to the Swedagon Pagoda. It is situated in a quiet area but still noisy at night (I think there is a karaoke nearby).. Staff is OK. I wouldn't go back to this hotel.

    Staff, staff, staff

    Returned to the Thamada Family Hotel after 10 days rough travelling because we knew the staff would be welcoming, friendly and helpful. They didn't let us down and we left two days later relaxed and refreshed. This is a budget Burmese hotel so don't expect luxury, but it's reliable and a good place to relax. Excellent local restaurants two doors down and staff will help you with taxis, money changing and so forth so smooth your stay.

    Quite basic but comfortable with great staff.”

    Comfortable beds, large rooms, friendly staff.

    Thammada Family Hotel is fairly basic and in an obviously older building. The neighbourhood is not fancy and in fact the hotel fronts onto a poorly paved back street. However the staff were very helpful and attentive, at one point escorting me about 15 - 20 minutes walk away to help me find a money exchange. Staff can also arrange taxis to the airport or downtown for very fair rates. Two local restaurants next door offer excellent local food at a very good price (also with very friendly and helpful staff) and there is a higher quality Thai restaurant close by also. For the sights, a 15 minute stroll takes you to Shwedagon Pagoda which is a fantastic after dinner walk. Getting downtown requires a taxi but that will cost only 2,000 to 3,000 kyats (about 2 - 3 dollars).

    None of the lights work except the bathroom and one lamp. The power outlets don't give power. And get this - They barged into my locked room one early morning to check in other guests while I was still sleeping. Imagine my horror (and theirs of my nudity)!

    they have a big room and good price but didn't have free breakfast not so far away from this hotel you can walk to Shwedagon pagoda [5-10 minute] or you can take a taxi to the good Myanmar restaurant with the cheap price the room not so clean and the restroom is dirty and if you need the extra bed is not so clean too. Anyway no problem to stay in this hotel if you just want to stay for 1 or 2 night and travel to another city.

    proximity to shwedagon pagoda

    this hotel seemed to be in a very bad shape. it was quite rundown and needed a major overhaul. at least the aircon and water heater were working fine. since it was near the shwedagon pagoda (10-minute walk), it was already good enough for me just as a place to sleep.

    Nice staff but little else to recommend”

    Friendly staff, close to Shwedagon Paya, large room

    I wish I could say something good, as the staff were lovely and helpful, but a few things annoyed me. I realise that Yangon has a shortage of accommodation, so prices are higher than Thailand, but even for a budget hotel the following things weren't good. First, there was no wi-fi the whole week I was there. I know the Internet was working, because they were using it in the hotel reception, but the password they gave me for the wi-fi was incorrect, even though they insisted otherwise. Second, almost every night there was a lot of music and noise from next door, though it usually didn't go on too late. But one night from 1 AM to 3 AM they were moving around furniture in the room directly above me (granted they apologised and stopped at once when I finally marched upstairs blurry-eyed and in a foul mood). The room itself, though large, was run-down and dirty, and wasn't cleaned during my stay. When it rained, dirty water poured in to the bathroom through the extractor fan unit. But on the whole I guess it was adequate accommodation. A shame about the issues, as the hotel is centrally located in Yangon (though a cab ride to the downtown area) and could be made very attractive with a decent cash injection.

    Stay here only if you have to”

    Price, location, quiet

    Well, in Yangon you pay a fair amount for a room and don't get what you pay for. Thamada Family hotel was a last minute booking and to be fair I was pretty thankful to get a room at a (fairly) reasonable price (by Myanmar standards) so I really shouldn't complain there... That said I have very little positive to say about the hotel or the area; there was little in the way of shopping or food aside from the two bland restaurants nearby. However, he taxi driver I hired from the stand nearby (Mr Knee) was outstanding so it wasn't a totally grim experience. Overall the hotel was below average in terms of the room, location, cleanliness and staff and I wouldn't stay here again unless I absolutely had to. In short don't expect too much from the room, area and especially the staff and you'll be okay. Of note is that there are actually two Thamada Family hotels within about 20 minutes drive of each other so make sure your taxi driver knows which one!

    Decent Hotel in Yangon”

    Location, friendly staff, fast interne

    I stayed one night at the Thammada Family Hotel and I got a big room facing the street. The water pressure was strong and there was hot water available so I definitely enjoyed my bath. Aung, the receptionist, was very friendly and helpful and he even went out of his way by showing me around the City after his duty. It was raining when I arrived Yangon and all the while I thought I would not be able to do a city tour that day but he made things possible by bringing an umbrella. He made things a lot easier for me by bargaining with the taxi drivers and even helped me do my shopping. He also arranged to call a taxi to the airport for my early morning flight to Nyang U (Bagan). With the homey atmosphere and the friendliness of the staff any guest in this hotel will not hesitate to come back.

    Disapointing but good view of pagoda”

    View from top two stories, huge rooms, working a/c

    While we are budget travelers and the quality of the room is actually similar to what we are used to, it was not worth the price for the quality and to be so far away from city center. The staff was not very welcoming, the bathroom leaked from EVERYWHERE,and very few places to eat in walking distance. Positives: The a/c worked but only on or off, the room is absolutely huge, beds are soft (foam).
