Bo Myat Tun Hotel: Reasonable Hotel in Yangon

Bo Myat Tun Hotel is situated in the three highest floors of a tower of the name in Boahtaung Township not to far from city center. The outside look of the tower, in which many offices are located, looks a bit oldish, as the downside entree. But the rooms are confortable, large, the beds are new, as the blankets. Flatscreen TV and WiFi. Bathroom with hotwater shower is simple, but working. Outside view on the city is interesting, specially by night, where you can see the stupa of Schwedagon Pagoda.
Laundry service is excellent; every item is specially packed in a plastic bag.
Free breakfast is in a simple restaurant downstairs with free buffet of Asian dishes.

Service of frontdesk is excellent, very friendly and open for any question about Yangon city. I reserved via Agoda and had no problem. Taxi's are always waiting at the frontdoor, speaking a bit of English or better, and they are cheap; for one or two dollars (US), they drive you to towncenter.

Mother Land Inn 2: A great place to stay

Unfortunately it was not possible to stay in a single or double room because they were already booked. I had to stay in the dormitory.
When I arrived here, they invited me to have the buffet breakfast for free. Staff is very kind and helpful.
If I visit again Yangon, surely I will stay here again!

The great breakfast.
The free shuttle to the airport twice a day.
The kindness of the staff.

Yoma Hotel: Budget Accomodation away from the centre of Town

I was sick of the management at the Thamada Hotel so decided to stay at this hotel for the night. for 18 dollars it was as good as Thamada at twice its price and the staff equally friendly. the only drawback is that it is a good 20 minute walk from the centre and it can be very tiring in the heat or the rain

THE OCEAN PEARL INN: A GREAT PLACE TO STAY IN YANGON

YANGON (RANGOON)
I had previously booked this accomodation from Bangkok..(with hostels.com) mainly because it has a free pickup from the Airport on International flights..remembering the Airport is a long way out of town..what I saved on a taxi from the Airport to the city paid for my first nights acccomodation.

Great value..good large room...air con..ensuite..very good large breakfast..bar fridge...TV..backup generator..Price depends on your length of stay and on your bargaining skills..typically friendly Burmese staff..also handle all travel arrangements...taxis and money xchange..24 hour electricity..

Golden Smile Inn: Great Backpackers Choice

Very affordable B&B with simple rooms for little money. I stayed there twice during my trip in 2007.
The rooms feature two beds, a small table and a chair, some hooks and a mirror.
Only one of the rooms has own Shower/WC, the others is shared.
All the rooms have aircon. For breakfast you should go for Mohinga - on Wikipedia.
I only got very few mosquito bites in the room (only 1-3 per 2 days).
This B&B is family owned. They are very friendly and helpfull. At least one of them speaks very good English and also some fair Japanese. They offer laundry service and can organize plane tickets for you.
Dont be startled if you hear footsteps: the rooms itself are ratfree. All holes and posssible entries are blocked. You just can hear them walking on the false ceiling of the rooms sometimes :) So no problem for you.
You will have to pay only around 5 - 10$/per night per room if I remember correctly.

The Strand: Nostalgic

I did not stay overnight, but this is a very famous hotel from the colonial era of Rangoon. This was one of the in places to be seen in. We had afternoon tea here, we were lucky to be able to get in as it is often booked up. The old colonial atmosphere remains and to have tea and scones in the Strand is one of the tick off things to do in Rangoon, it's like a singapore sling in Raffles in Singapore. It was very enjoyable and just to make sure we didn't get overcome with nostalga, we retired to the bar for a few cold beers after.

mahabandoola guesthouse, pyin oo lwyn etc: backpacker hostels

several backpacker hostels are situated within a very strategic place. the location are perfect in the center of the city, so make it easier whenever we want to wander around. normally, these hostels have rooms in second floor or up and several has windows facing to direction sule paya.

not so far [or can be said within walking distance] to the tourist spots: bogyoke aung san/scott market, sule paya and mahabandoola garden park and several old colonial buildings.

Grand Plaza Park Royal: Standard 4* Tourist Hotel

A rather standard 4* hotel that charges about US$45 for a twin room. The plus point of this hotel is its proximity to Scott market, and good spread of breakfast buffet. Also good are the foot reflexology and spa centre - tried out the foot and shoulder massage at the former (excellent after long tired day)

Motherland II guest house.: Don't look any further.

If you're not in need of the facilities of a 5 star hotel (Internet access, pool and so on) with all that implies in Myanmar, you need look no further than this place. It's spotless, friendly and very good value.

Personally, I don't like air-con rooms, they always give me a bad throat, so the fan room at 8 dollars US per night was most acceptable. This is a picture of the room (single occupancy of a twin room).

The staff couldn't be more helpful, and they all speak English to varying degrees.

Breakfast is good, the usual eggs (as you like them), banana, orange juice, tea or coffee, all included in the price. The "fan room" I had also had en-suite bathroom with hot water constantly available.

On the day I left, they offered me a free lift to the airport. This trip normally costs either 5 or 6 US dollars, so effectively my room had cost me 2 dollars. They also do a couple of runs to the airport to meet the most popular flights, so it really works out cost effective if you book in advance.

I can't speak highly enough of this place. The gidebook says it is a long walk into town, but I managed it every day with no problem. Let's be honest, you're here to see the place, not run about in a taxi all day.

Highly recommended. and not just be me, it seems. The place seems constantly full of travellers.

The staff (of whom there seem to be dozens) are outstanding. Nothing is too much trouble for them.

The location is nothing spectacular, but it is in an area that will give you a good insight into local life.

The sunrise isn't bad either (see second photo).

Hotel Halpin: Memories of the colonial times

This older style hotel a little further from the centre of town and situated near the erstwhile fashionable suburbs... i was given the room on the top floor with wonderful views of the leafy gardens and the bungalows of the british colonial times.
by the way Halpin was an english jew who was in the administration, I think.

extremely friendly staff.
roof top restaurant.
great view of the pagodas from the roof top

Excel Treasure Hotel: Friendly welcome

This is the third or fourth time I am staying here. always welcomed warmly by the staff at the front desk. it caters for business people even though now and then i would see a tourist or two or burmese visiting from elsewhere.

I am always given an upgrade and the bedroom is very comfortable, large and overlooking the street with a balcony attached.
the price is unbeatable. for slightly more than what people pay for a guest house ( I have never stayed in one in Myanmar), i have all the luxuries of a three or four star hotel and breakfast thrown in and there is a food court nearby, inlcuding some good shan noodles.
