YANGON: Hotel 63

I chose this hotel based on feedback from various online sources that it has good internet connection. Fair enough, when the in-room WiFi failed -- and it did big time because the connection was always intermittent -- the connection at the lobby always saved my day. Most of the hotel’s rooms are on sale on Agoda, and I found out why when I arrived. Construction. If you happen to stay in your room at daytime, then your ears would be vibrating to the never-ending beat of pounding hammers, making it seem as though someone is perpetually knocking at your door. Another downside would be the location at the far edge of downtown surrounded by a lorry parking site.

What about the room itself? Superior means a comfy double bed, an aircon that has a five-minute lag when turned on (as stated on one of the room guides), a refrigerator with complimentary drinks, a wide desk, and a TV with DVD player. I love the room. The interior design could use a little update but in terms of comfort, I really felt at home. The staff members are always helpful and at least one of them speaks passable English for you to get what you need, like booking a bus or having them call a taxi for you. The price is a bit steep, but you already know that accommodations are outrageously priced in this country wherever you go. Yes, I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a relatively cheaper alternative.

How much is the accomodation here?

@LonelyTravelogue - Sorry for the delayed response... According to my records, it's 76,000 kyats for two nights. 38,000 kyats is around 1,750 pesos, if I'm not mistaken. I think it was on promo on Agoda or something. Could not remember well.
