After being extremely jet lagged from a long international flight, this hotel provided us with a wonderful, quiet place to rest on our first night in this exciting country. The service was good,the staff professional, the bed soft, and the room very comfortable. The only draw back was that we arrived a bit before the room was ready and had to wait an hour before it was ready. I don't think this was the fault of the hotel however as we went during the busy season. I would certainly advise a booking months as early as you decide. We took a taxi at night which was very reasonable(3,000 K) to the Shwedagon Pagoda. There is a supermarket type store within a 5 minute walk which was quite interesting. The breakfast in the morning was one of the best ever on our trip. We would certainly stay there again.
