Budget Inn in Right Location

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 21, 2014

It is extremely hard to find the right accomodation that value for money in Yangon. First, I found Motherland Inn II, but it is away from the downtown. Then, decent guesthouses in downtown would cost between US$50 to US$100 per night. By checking the comments from the tripadvisor and recommended by one of our VT members, we finally decided to choose Ocean Pearl Inn for our stay in Yangon. It costs US$30 per night for a room with attached bath. We stayed for 3 nights.

I booked the hotel through its website, and got the instant replied from the host. We did not make any booking deposit in advance and to reconfirm with the host 2 days before our departure date.

The host waited us at the arrival hall, despite we almost missed the free pick-up van of the hotel. We waited for 30 minutes with other travelers for the van. Anyway, it is a free airport pick-up from Ocean Pearl Inn.

When we arrived, we noticed that this must be one of the famous backpack hotels or budget Inns in town. The front desk was really busy serving new guests and seeing many travelers in and out the hotel. They upgraded us to a bigger room with two queen-size beds due to the full occupancy of the standard rooms. Well, we were lucky!

We did not expect much for a US$30 room in Yangon! We were looking for clean, smell free, and a good hot shower. The Ocean Pearl Inn is not perfect, but acceptable!

Pro:
1) Great Location, walking distance to restaurants, shops, railway station, and downtown.
2) Friendly staffs
3) Comfortable beds and pillows and clean sheets.
4) The Air-conditioning is brand new, noise free.
5) Value for money
6) The shower is fine with hot water.
7) Free Airport pick-up

Con:
1) A minor maintenance issue
2) Cleanliness - 1 to 5 and 5 being the best, I would rate it as 3.
3) The T.V is useless.
4) The room smiles odor, but not too bad.
5) Breakfast is very basic, toast and coffee or tea.
6) Bring your own towers!

Overall, we enjoyed the stay in Ocean Pearl Inn. It is safe and having the local experience while staying in a local community neighborhood. The host makes us feel comfortable and provided us with information we needed.

Check out its website for more information!
