Throw back to the time of the Generals

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 30, 2011

The hotel's main quality is that it is very central, attached to a very nice cafe which serves good fusion asian cuisine and just saddling one of the better teashops.
but the rooms reminded me of hotel rooms in cuba during the closed period in that country, with accoutrements definitely 1970s and 1980s.
larger rooms than normal but with old TV bed bath room accessories etc

I couldnt wait to leave as this is truly a third rate budget hotel. I stayed because of the easy internet availability at the Cafe and the cafe is open 24 hours per day

Unique Quality: the new face of Myanmar is that nowadays the hotels are full of local people which is a welcome addition and very few foreigners.
this used to be a government hotel but like all the others the ownership has been transferred to private individuals. I am told that like most hotels transferred to private hands, the Govt still has 50 % interest in this hotel and its sister hotel inya lake hotel
I cant but laugh at the naivete of people who say that they want to make sure that their money does not go to the hands of the government: there is no legal dealings in this country and many of the illegal ones as well in which the govt does not get a cut a certain percentage. So if you think your money ends up completely in the hands of the private individuals you are wrong. What you are doing is that you are enriching the private individuals to create a social chasm, that is far more of a social crime than giving money to the government in my opinion
The service is very poor except the old hands at the door, who has been there long before the Generals hid themselves

Directions: just across the bridge over the railway within walking distance to the sule pagoda and the central railway station and bogyoke market
