    The service staff is excellent....nothing else is good about this horrific hotel.

    I was food poisoned eating only at Traders cafes (confirmed by the hotel doctor). The place is under renovation so all day you hear constant banging. Truly unbearable. And, ;paying three times the rate of last time makes it even more intolerable. NEVER AGAIN!!! Save your money and go elsewhere.

    The Hotel is clean with very good service. No bad smell from humidity as in some other very good hotels. In the hotel lobby the AC tempertor is good and it is not freezing as in few other 5 star hotels in Yangon. The servcie is excellent. Very recomended hotel.

    It is under construction and the noise during the day is not pleasent

    Staff are friendly and helpful. Room is spacious and comfortable. Good spread of breakfast. Excellent location.

    The staff only accepts brand new, crisp USD notes. A little fold or sign of old note is unacceptable. This is similar across the whole country and not unique to hotel. Travellers to Myanmar to take note.

    The location is about 100m from the Bogyoke market. The front staff is very helpfull and speak good english. The room is excellent.

    The internet is slow especially during busy hours. The staff from the offices in the hotel would jam up the elevators during morning and evening rush hours.

    Good service by staff who spoke good English. Rooms were clean and pretty (the refurbished ones). Food was good, breakfast spread was acceptable with a good variety of food.

    The rooms on the 8th floor are apartments, these were a little dated.

    They had a problem with the aircon, Once we complained they gave us dinner and a car to the airport which was appreciated.

    Everything was being reburbished, inc the gym and restaurants

    Very central location. The rooms are nice and very comfortable. The house keeping and the staff at the reception were also very polite and helpful. Breakfast options are vast and cater to almost all types.. we stayed for 5 days and weren't tired of the breakfast spread. People say the hotel is expensive, its just a question of perspective. At about $200/night its x10 better than the dumps you get for a similar price in say EU cities like Paris or Rome.

    Recently renovated rooms are good ! The breakfast is eloborate but the choices available for Vegetarians are less since even all the breads have eggs in it , considering the regular inflow of Indian visitors (veg ) the choice sh be increased .

    The availability of porters to take out the luggage from taxi sh be improved !

    Good

    The friendly staff who were quite genuine, especially Coral at the Trader's Club during breakfast. She made it a point to chat with me and made me feel welcome and not just the usual salutations like "How are you?" Did you like your breakfast?". One other waitress waitress noticed that I was alone and asked me if I wanted a copy of the daily English newspaper. That was really thoughtful of her.

    1) The real downside is that the rates have shot through the roof. I felt that a reasonable increase was acceptable, but the tripling or even quadrupling of rates at the Traders smacks of the owners being opportunistic. I know the laws of demand and supply usually applies, but this drastic increase in room rates was just plain ridiculous. 2) The constant banging and drilling that sounded like it was coming from the floor upstairs. I knew that they were doing progressive renovations, but I thought that the hotel should have kept 2 floors empty below the actual floors being renovated from the guests, so that they had a sufficient sound "buffer" instead of booking guests just below. The hotel lobby looked a little sad and worn and should be completely overhauled and spruced up by the interior designers!
