Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
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.

Very good 3 star hotel in the Main Street, room was very good size with aircon.

Beds are super comfortable, layout of room is quirky with toilet and shower but fine for couples, singles etc.

Hotel is in the Main Street only few hundred metres from sule pagoda l.

Would stay here again

Due to decades of isolation the hotel industry in Burma has been greatly neglected. For a long time it was seen as anything but a lucrative industry and now the country suffers from a great shortage of options. In Yangon you can feel that you can pick a hostel or a USD 150 per night giant hotel, the mid range options are not very present.

The East Hotel is one of the few mid range options that achieves a lot. Small but smart rooms, good wifi access throughout the hotel, some of the most comfortable beds I've experienced in the country, a good breakfast menu, and kind employees at the front desk who will try their best to help with anything you need.

It is located on the large Sule Pagoda road and is just a block away from the famous Bogyoke Market and is within walking distance of other interesting sights in the downtown area. On either side of the hotel are movie theaters which offer a great cultural experience (warning: people here don't believe in being completely silent during a film). Also in the same block are two relatively decent restuarants which are cheap. One is a Thai restuarant and the other offers beer food and a fairly extensive menu (ask the sweet waitresses for their favorites, they can recommend great curries which are only found in Burma and done well here).

I've read a few reviews which find fault with the design of the rooms and the lack of bathroom privacy. Yes, these rooms might not be prime for sharing with a travel companion who you do not know very well. If you tell the front desk, prior to your arrival, that you would like as much bathroom privacy as possible they will understand and will try to accommodate you. The rooms are not massive but I found them to be roomy and not cramped. They try to make the small spaces feel larger and put in sweet decorative touches. Flat screen TVs, writing desks, coffee makers, unlimited free water (this, in my opinion, is a huge selling point and one to not be overlooked. I have never encountered this before and when dealing with the Yangon heat it is an extreme blessing), solid and free wifi access, and nice sheets.

One note: a few of the girls at the front desk, while extremely nice and well meaning, do not speak perfect English. If you have a tricky request try and talk to one of the two gentlemen who work at the desk. They are a bit older and speak excellent English. Everyone here is willing and waiting to help you and these guys can help with just about anything, in my experience.

This is a great little spot. Yes there may be some small problems but for USD 50 per night I find it to be as comfortable, if not more so, than some of the much more expensive hotels in town and has a better location for exploring.

Stayed for three nights, price reasonable, room whilst not luxurious has all of the basics together with a dose of "style". Free wifi reasonable fast and reliable. Breakfast more than adequate. But it was the staff that made the difference, every question they were asked they answered with a smile and were genuinely very helpful. Only downside is the often mentioned lack of toilet door - not great when you are sharing a room. Would fully recommend the East Hotel.

Room was dusty, the floor was sticky, no preasure on the shower. We book 4 rooms, and all the rooms have issues. Toilet is inside the room with no ventilation, STAY AWAY!! Their agoda pictures is from 2010 very deceiving. We moved to a different hotel only after 1 night of the 10 nights we booked. All the other guest also complain, again stay away travellers!!

I normally stay at Traders Hotel, but on this Jan 2012 trip stayed at both Parkroyal and East Hotel. On arrival at the airport, most taxi drivers already know of the East Hotel, and if they don't just tell them it is opposite Traders. It appears they are trying to get US$8 for a taxi trip from the airport to the hotel, but the "normal" price is still $7. The best exchange rate we could get this trip was 860 Kyats/US$1. Anyway, about the Hotel! The location is great, within walking distance of Sule Pagoda and Scott Market. I'd suggest you get a taxi to the Shwedagon, tho ($2-3). The ground floor comprises reception and dining area, and is all modern and quite efficient. The folk at Reception are helpful and accommodating (sic). The lift is quite tiny, so tour groups may need several trips. I seem to recall about 9 floors. We stayed on the 3rd floor. The rooms are fairly small, but modern and comfortable, with tea-making facilities, shower (no bath), and security-card access. The bathroom/toilet area is separated from the sleeping area by partitioning and blinds, but is otherwise open to the rest of the room, so be sure to share the room with someone close and/or liberal-minded. Good aircon, large-screen TV, free WIFI (code on room key), and comfy beds make the place hospitable. Only 2 people per room tho, and if you are a family with children, you'll need another room. We had sleeping bags for the kids but no extra beds, and the floors are tiled, so not a goer. Road noise was negligible, and we all slept well. Breakfast was included in the room tariff, and was OK, but not spectacular (ABF: eggs, bacon, sausages, toast, cereal (muesli swimming in an ocean of warm milk), coffee/tea, juice, 3 fresh fruit). Burmese and Chinese set breakfasts also available. The staff were helpful, and the few inherent language problems (they speak limited English) were overcome easily. The staff will organize a taxi to the airport on departure (another $7). Tipping is optional, but appreciated. The design of the rooms (especially the bathroom) suggests they will show wear and tear quickly, so suggest you stay there sooner than later.

I can't add much to the other positive reviews - the hotel is in a great location, the staff are very helpful (particularly with organising accommodation in other places) and there is free WiFi. The room was a little on the small side but hey this is a capital city and would be considered large for London! We had a great view of the Sule Paya though to compensate.

The East is located in central Yangon near Sule Pagoda and across the street from the Traders. Staff is excellent and more than willing to provide directions, recommendations, and general assistance. There is a decent restaurant in the lobby where excellent, complimentary breakfast is served and also has a full menu for snacks, lunch and dinner. After a week of curry, it was nice to have a few western options here, but the prices are a little higher than you would expect for Yangon. The room was great, our only complaint is that it is a little too open. The toilet is separated from the room only by a freestanding cabinet - it's a little strange. Otherwise, the room was very clean and comfortable, nice water pressure in the shower, and decent wi-fi access in rooms and lobby. We really appreciated the unlimited complimentary bottled water. Also, they are bookable online at Agoda which is a big plus.

Someone wrote they didnt like this hotel at all.... This was our first night in Myanmar so have nothing to compare it against. After 50 years of sanctions and isolation and expecting everything to be ultra run down, the East Hotel comes out on top. OK it doesnt have a gr8 deal of character, but the staff are VERY helpful, the rooms are ultra clean and it is a modern building and good value for money. I went for a late night walk on arrival, the condition of the streets and pavements are utterly appalling, you really have to mind your step when you are walking and stepping off the pavement to cross the street in the dark, and late at night as the markets are closing there is rubbish everywhere and the smells are a bit on the nose, so trust me, the East is a very nice place, the breakfast is brilliant. Where we come from breakfast for two in a cafe would cost what this hotel is for the night with breakfast thrown in. Plus if you turn left a couple of doors down, I found a very simple cafe where I had a superb whole fried fish and a couple of beers for $5. Interesting fact is they have cars designed to drive on the left side of the road but drive on the right, go figure. The prices at the East are a little expensive for dinner, particularly the drinks, but you get that in hotels throughout the world I guess.... Also, forget the advice about not changing money at the airport. We followed the advice on here to buy a ticketed taxi from the airport - cost $10 but didnt change any money due to advice that the rates were bad. THIS HAS CHANGED there are now two banks operating at the airport, not a private money changer. Hotel exchange rate is 800 K per USD, about 9 percent below bank rate. Also had a lot of problems at night trying to change money, was expecting to change money easily in night markets but this is not so.... having to wait till 9.30 this morning to change money which is throwing our day out a bit at the start, but hey, we ARE on holiday so time suddently has stopped...

A great hotel - centrally located near Sakura Tower - opposite Traders Hotel and close to Yangon Railway Station. Air Conditioned with 24 hour power and free Wi Fi. Clean rooms and friendly staff. Free bottled water and good breakfast. Toilet with no door and only beaded curtin, may deter some travellers. As an independant solo traveller, I had no trouble. Had a front room overlooking Sule Pagoda Rd and never heard a thing.

Good mid-range option in downtown Yangon. No hassles checking-in, although the hotel seemed swamped with package tourists, backpackers, and business people. Minimalist room was comfortable, modern, and clean. Large, flat-screen TV with international channels. Small bathroom had no door for modest travellers. Limited electrical plugs for gadgets. Free wifi was the best connection I experienced in Myanmar. The 2 bottles of water provided daily in-room goes quickly in the Burmese heat, so the unlimited refills located in refrigerators on each floor were useful between excursions around town. Helpful and efficient staff. Breakfast was filling and had good western options. Some taxi drivers may not know the East Hotel by name (renamed and refurbished from another hotel), but it is directly across from the Traders Hotel, which is well-known. 5 minute walk to Sule Pagoda, with great views of Shwedagon Pagoda from upper-level rooms. Booked with AsiaTravel and paid USD $60 per night.

Room Tip: Ask for a high-level room with a view of Shwedagon Pagoda - it's worth it, especially at night.
