I stayed here for 3 nights after having to leave my first hotel--an overbooking issue. There is a general lack of accomodations these days in many places in Burma it is a bit frustrating.
Anyway, I was kind of glad to find this hotel but I ended up not spending much time there. The room was small and a bit dark, the bed was a single but OK.
The bathroom was impossible. If your waist (or any part of you) is over 35 inches you probably will have a hard time using the entrance. They should just rip the doors off completely because there is no room to shut once you are inside.
My room overlooked the courtyard which also had a pool. I used it once, which was refreshing.
In general the halls were shabby--there were used mattresses lying against the walls. Surely they should know how tacky that looks.
The breakfast buffet in the morning had many options, but nothing was very tasty. They played John Denver's greatest hits throughout breakfast which I thought was a total hoot.
I thought the staff were basically helpful. Guests had the option of getting a breakfast box for days when we got up early for travel. It was kind of nice.The bartenders off to the side of the lobby were friendly to chat with.
