I recently stayed at Alfa I had choose it because of its location. I was pleasantly surprised about the rooftop bar, I liked to rooms even though the ceilings were very low, but the towels very extra old and the amenities very poor. I might come back for the bar but not for the rooms.

We booked this hotel so that we could crawl back after the rooftop party. Nice quiet place. Surrounded by heaps of restaurants. Small & nice. Must visit the rooftop bar for nice views of Yangon. Travellers...this is a nice base for sightseeing

Except for the view of the Shwedagon from the small room (at 45 USD/night), the hotel gave no other value. Ceiling is very low even for an Asian like me who is 5'7". The blanket wasnt even ironed and the seams worn out, something that must have been seen by the hotel worker but just the same a customer like...

Review is for the Sapphire Bar on top of the Alpha Hotel. The hotel looks like a 3 star hotel and we had some doubts when we went into the hotel lounge. Reaching the bar on top of level 12, we were greeted by a rather bare large rooftop with chairs and tables placed loosely. The bar is literally two...

Been here twice and there's barely anybody here. It's a nice quiet place to hang out, have a drink and enjoy the sunset with Shwedagon Pagoda in sight. Take the elevator to the top floor and look for the stairs that lead up to the rooftop.

The view of Shwedagon Pagoda is clearly the main reason people visit the Sapphire rooftop bar at the Alfa Hotel. Sipping a cocktail as the sun sets on the golden shrine is an essential part of being in Yangon. The service may be a bit slow and the price is not cheap - but it is a view!

I did not stay here. I did, however, visit the rooftop bar and highly recommend it. You don't need to be a guest of the hotel to visit the rooftop. Simply go to the lobby and tell the staff you'd like to go to the rooftop and they will show you the elevator. When you get to the roof, you...

I'll start by saying we aren't very demanding customers. In nearly 3 weeks in myanmar we stayed in various places, all of which we found great, even very cheap backpackers hostels with no warm water or mirror in the room. However, we do think you should get what you pay for and this place just doesn't make sense. positive things...

In Yangon we returned again to the ALFA hotel (alfahotelyangon@gmail.com) It’s a 3 star situated on Nawaday street, very near to Bogyoke market. Our group required eight rooms (DLX DBLS at $100.-) and I had requested that they be on an upper floor (to avoid street noise) and as close together as possible. We arrived at the hotel at 11.00...

I work in Myanmar frequently and have stayed here for some time since the hotel prices started to escalate - a result of greed meets demand. Alfa actually cut their price this year to become competitive. The staff are all very polite, friendly and helpful. The manager is also very friendly and appreciative of custom.Rooms and shared areas are clean...
