Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This hotel is ideal if you are looking for just a place to put your things down and rest for the night. The location is central. The rooms are clean and decent. Simple with no amenities. But you pay for what you get. The is also wifi on every floor but I would suggest you get a room closer to the lobby if you want to have good wireless access.

They have buffet breakfast but it isn't great. But for the price you are paying i think most can accept it. The service standards are decent.

From the 4 hotels we stayed at in Yangon, this was our best. Nice room, good breakfast with good choice of fruits and extremely friendly staff. Good location for exploring both in the city centre and around the schwedagon pagoda.

What what I liked is the fact I could pay on line using my credit card through Agoda.com, right now in Mynamar its rather a pain in the u no what to be hauling all that perfect unadulterated USA cash around.
I was given a room on the 8th floor facing the Pagoda, it was dark when I arrived and the Pagoda was all lit up, quite a magical sight. The room was not a bad size, it was clean and comfortable. The staff was very nice very sweet and helpful. I ate every night at the restaurant in the hotel, the food was great, they stayed open late. I don't drink so I didn't go downstairs in the lounge and when I went by it it was always pretty smoky. People are allowed to smoke everywhere in Yangon so be prepared if your sensitive.
I needed a late check out and it was no problem to extend my room for 4 more hours, i really appriciated that.
Te location was pretty decent, it was about 15 minutes from down town Yangon by foot, you could get a taxi with no problem and be there in no time. The Pagoda is also in walking distance, It being 15 minutes from down town made it guiet and serene. I stayed five nites and would stay there again.

This is the 1st time to Yangon with my family (2 kids), Alfa's staffs offered free extra bed for my kids and towels that we didn't request which was a surprise. We booked a room with Shwedagon Pagoda view and It was amazing at night. The spotlights lit up the whole Pagoda which was breathtaking. This hotel location is quite convenient. We can walk to Shwedagon Pagoda and Bogyoke Market (great souvenir market).

The staffs were very friendly and helpful. Every time we went out and the bellman will ask if we need umbrellas or do we need taxi service. They didn't ask us for any tips which I think was great. This gave us more cash to spend on things we like to spend on.

As a three star hotel, the room inside is very tidy and clean. No mosquitoes nor flies.

The only thing I wanted to point out is the water in rooms need a little time to heat up, other than that, there was nothing else we would like to mention.

Just spent five days at the Alfa. Great value in a city of crazy prices (even in low, rainy season) but the best aspect of the hotel is the staff - professional, courteous and friendly. And nothing is too much trouble for them.

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 first: the hotel is well located, near some nice restaurants and cafes and not far from the shwedagon pagoda. And the wifi works well.

Other than that, it really sucked. Was by far and away the worst hotel we stayed in, in an almost 3 week trip to Myanmar - and the most expensive!! (Slightly surpassing even a beach front bungalow at Ngapali!)

The hotel and its furniture and equipment are very very old with some ridiculous features, like none of the room or bathroom lights working unless the main light is on (which makes it hard when one person is awake and the other isn't), and an almost cute built- in radio set from the 70s at the very latest!

bad smell in the room (of smoking, to which a bellboy was sent to spray some anti-odor all over the room...) and in the hallways (of ginger cooking or something like that) - both topped with a lingering scent of mold. Bath was uninviting to say the least.

My friend came in late and accidentally walked into a different room to discover that the key worked!! After which she tried a few more and apparently the magic key opened all the rooms she tried. Didn't really matter because the hotel was empty except for us - and rightfully so.

The reason we picked this hotel was because of the so-called rooftop bar, which turned out to be a poor guy standing in front of a small reception table stocked with some alcohol bottles, and an entirely unimpressive view. Yes, you can see the Shwedagon pagoda but aside from that not much more.

We know there is a supply-demand problem in Yangon which makes for a situation in which hotels don't need to try very hard and still have a steady flow of clients. However, this place was hostel-level with hotel price so better to just stay at a very basic backpackers place.

I stayed here one week for work and the staff went out of their way to make sure I had a room where the wifi worked. It was much appreciated. Hotel was clean, super quiet with great bedding, and lovely staff. Some rooms are better than others, plumbing seems to have seen better days. Great location in lovely part of Yangon.

The main plus points for this hotel are the staff! A lovely group of smiling, impeccably dressed and helpful individuals. It would be difficult to fault them. Second plus point is the view from any rooms at the front/top of the hotel of the Shwe Dagon Pagoda. It is worth paying the few extra dollars for, seeing as you are paying through the nose anyway! If you don't get the view from the room, then go to the Sapphire Lounge rooftop bar which must have one of the best views in Yangon. However don't believe the bit about it being open till 3am! We stayed a week and it never opened much past 12 midnight-1am. It seemed to be subject to demand. If there were people around they would carry on. If not they closed up shop.

Breakfasts were plentiful and of good quality and in pleasant surroundings, but as has been mentioned many times, totally repetitive! Identical every morning, which is not good for guests staying more than one or two nights. But again, wonderfully staffed!

Location is also great. Quietly located in a side-street, yet in easy walking distance of the Bogyoke Aung San Market. (TIP! turn right out of the hotel front entrance, take the first right turn and walk straight on across one junction. You will come to a railway footbridge which is an interesting experience in itself. This takes you into the back entrance area of the market and is a bit of a short-cut!). It is also convenient for Shwe Dagon Pagoda as well as most other main attractions. There are usually several taxis waiting outside and the hotel staff are happy to help you negotiate prices with the drivers. Also turning right out of the front entrance will take you to several cafes/noodle shops/restaurants which seemed decent quality and reasonably priced.

The downsides to this hotel are linked, in being the quality of the rooms and the price! The rooms were reminiscent of 1970s style motel rooms which had been wallpapered by enthusiastic kindergarten kids! The furniture was chipped, battered and shabby. The beds were actually comfortable and the housekeeping was very good. But in general the room was a let-down. For what we paid we would have been able to have a top 5-star hotel in Bangkok or Kuala Lumpur but this seems to be the norm for Yangon. I'm guessing that supply and demand (plus greed?)as Myanmar emerges from its semi-isolation, have pushed up hotel prices across Yangon. They will have to be careful not to kill the goose that laid the golden egg!

The internet connection was patchy and unreliable, but I think this was the fault of the infrastructure rather than the hotel. Best reception was to be had on the roof-top.

Some general Yangon tips worthy of note! Money! Yes they are proud of the booth-style ATMs that are appearing around the city, but beware the charges! The one withdrawal we made cost us an unannounced fee of 5000 Kyats (app. £4.00 / $6.00) which is steep to say the least. Most people mention the fact that money change establishments only accept crisp new dollar bills, but most don't mention that they give lower exchange rates for lower denomination bills. $100s and $50s get a much better rate than $20s and $10s. Use $5s and $1s to pay for local services/entry fees/taxis as they in turn get a lower rate at the money changers. We also noticed that some of the larger branches have now started exchanging Euros and Singapore Dollars, so who knows what the future will bring?

The Myanmar people were lovely and would go out of their way to be friendly and helpful. Worth visiting their country just to experience this in itself.

As soon as they get their silly hotel price situation under control Myanmar and Yangon will become a serious force to be reckoned with in the Far East Tourist market.

This small hotel has friendly and helpful staff who couldn't do enough for me. I found the location was terrific as it was within walking distance of the Shwe Dagon Pagoda in one direction and the central markets in the other. The breakfast was adequate with fruit juice, fruit, toast and eggs, Asian noodles and salads.
