Good location and nice neighborhood
I stayed in Yuzana Hotel in April and July 2013. Good location (about 10-15 minutes walking distance to Shwedagon Pagoda) and nice neighborhood, if one prefer to escape from the hustle and bustle of downtown environment. Room with basic amenity i.e. equipped with Air conditioning, Minibar, Satellite TV, Telephone, Bathroom with hot and cold water (with bathtub). As at July 2013, Yuzana does not accept any kind of Credit Cards except CASH in USD. Superior Room has NO View whereas Deluxe Room has either City View or Pagoda View.
Hotel staff is helpful and room with WIFI when my stay in July 2013.
I have stayed at this hotel many times
I have stayed at this hotel many times. I like it because of the location, not too far from downtown, but far enough to avoid the noise and pollution. The rooms are spacious and cleaned everyday. Satellite TV and a mini-refrigerator are standard in every room. It is within walking distance (10-15 minutes) of the Shwedagon pagoda. An added bonus of this hotel is the view of the pagoda from the 6th floor room(s) which is nothing less than spectacular! So make sure you ask for a pagoda view room. Also, there is a big grocery/department store on the ground floor of the hotel where you can purchase just about anything. The last time I stayed there wi-fi access was available only in the lobby. When I asked the front desk about wi-fi availability in the rooms they said they were working on it. Perhaps they have installed it in the rooms by now. Prices there were very reasonable. Two years ago, the room rates were only US$25/night for a single or double with breakfast included. Unfortunately, because of the current supply and demand, I believe it is now close to $90!
Unique Quality: The main advantages are:
1. You can walk to the Shwedagon pagoda
2. Supermarket adjacent to the hotel lobby
3. Rooms with the pagoda view (subject to availability)
Directions: If you are coming from the airport, the best way is to take Pyay Road. Along this route you will see the great Shwedagon pagoda. After Pyay Road merges into U Wisara Road, make a left turn at Link Road. Yuzana Hotel is about 400-500 meters on the right.
