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.

Best thing about this hotel is that is close to everything so you can just walk to them. Breakfast was good too. Room service staffs were nice and friendly. Bad things are the water pressure is so low for shower that is impossible to get a good shower especially on the 5th floor. The rooms are very tired too and in need of an urgent update. Plus the noise from the road and the building site opposite the hotel was unbearable at night to get a good sleep.

There is nothing fancy about the hotel, but everything is in order and clean. Plus their staff is helpful. On our last day in Yangon, we planned to check out and walk to the Bogyoke market before heading to the airport, but it was raining, they offered to safe keep our backpacks at the hotel and and even lent us umbrellas.
It is easy to get a cab from this hotel and within walking distance to the Bogyoke market. The breakfast buffet doesn't have money choices but it's not bad.

Yes it is not the Ritz but you are not paying Ritz Prices! Having read previous reviews what do people expect. Stayed here earlier this month before & after touring. Central location. Hot Water, Clean sheets , large double bed, A/C Worked, Lifts worked, Bank currency exchange in foyer, wifi in reception areas ( bedrooms very slow ), adequate breakfast and friendly staff, whether reception, restaurant or room cleaning. Our two rooms did not have wall paper coming off the wall & the bathroom had the little freebees! so what else do you require? You are not living in the hotel room for your holiday!

This was our last hotel during our trip to Myanmar and definitely the worst.

The hotel was very dated and tired which we could have looked past if the rooms weren't also dirty. There was dust all around the room and a dirty mark on the pillow. We also had a room at the front which felt dark, the ceilings had been lowered to allow for the Aircon units but this made the rooms feel much smaller. It was just a bit depressing! There is also no working safe in the rooms, but they do offer safety deposit boxes I believe at reception.

We had a look at the breakfast but chose to eat out. The selection was very limited with the only cereal on offer being cornflakes.

Overall we were surprised this place was 3stars, it had a good location but they really need to give some attention to the upkeep and cleanliness.

Stayed at the Central Hotel for 4 nights in June/July 2006. Got a walk-in rate of $30.00 for a double with breakfast buffet included. This is a centrally located business hotel right across from the train station and Bogyoke Market and right behind the Trader's Hotel. Very convenient. Our room was a good size with refrigerator, adjustable air con, tub/shower (with lots of hot water) and windows that actually opened! But the best part was that the blanket was enclosed by crisp, white sheets on both sides...ah. Our room was on the fourth floor and we faced the busy street but noise was no problem and it was nice to be able to stick out heads out the window to check the weather (humid and rainy) and watch the traffic.

Breakfast on the first floor was adequate but the eggs were unappetizing because they were pre-cooked, over easy, and placed in a cold chaffing dish. We avoided them. The other items were rotating Asian dishes (noodles/fried rice/congee), baked goods, a breakfast meat, samosas, fresh fruit, and juice (yellow or orange [the color, not the flavor] the juices were both overly sweet with little flavor), coffee or tea and toast on request. We had to leave very early one morning so the hotel arranged to have breakfast brought to our room around 5:00 a.m. Nice!

A warning or heads up (depending on your tastes) - they have a reflexology/beauty salon on the 6th floor that looked scary! But just don't push "6" in the elevator and you will be fine. (Curiosity will make you push 6, huh.)

The people at the desk were very helpful and also exchanged dollars to kyat ($1 usd for 1240 kyat) or you could just walk out the front door and a blackmarketeer will find you.

There are several nice restaurants in the area and it was no problem finding a meal nearby. You can also send e-mails from the hotel. Ask at the desk. They do not have internet nor can you pick up your e-mail but you can send out e-mails at $1.00 usd per e-mail.

One minor problem was low light in the room - they use very low wattage bulbs - 15 watts(or so it seemed). The brightest place was the bathroom. I had a booklight so I was O.K. They have cable TV tho and you can watch BBC.

This isn't a first tier place and neither is the price. It certainly is adequate and the service people are very helpful. We both thought we got our money's worth and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

The hotel is old, dimly lit and gloomy looking. However if you are in Yangon for only one or two nights and do not stay in the room in the day (eg, up and about sightseeing), then it is an inexpensive place. Very conveniently located, it is within walking distance to the Bogyoke Aung San market and a nearby mall and supermarket called Ruby Mart. It is also near a cinema and other local shops where you can get inexpensive local meals. Next to the hotel is the slightly more upmarket Traders Hotel where you can try out their F & B outlets if you prefer not to dine at Central Hotel.

The hotel provides money changing services and even offers to send breakfast to my room at 4 am, in time for me to catch an early flight. You can get free wifi at the hotel lobby. There is supposed to be free wifi in the room too but the signals were too weak where my room was located.

In Myanmar, the most important thing is ease to convert currency. As it is so much devalued that you give few dollars and u get loads of Kyats that is very difficult to carry. So keep changing currency as and when required. Staaf is good. Average bfast, slow internet and they even switch off internet at 11 pm - very bad

For calls to other cities in Myanmar, the hotels I stayed in, Mandalay, Taunggyi and Bagan charged $300 Kyats for the first minute and $100 Kyats for additional minutes (this equals about 30 cents in US dollars for the first minute and 10 cents for each minute afterwards. This was written for customers to see at the front desk or near the phone. I assumed this was the rate in Yangon. However it turned out that the Central Hotel charges $1.75 US for each minute. This was not written anywhere nor was this explained to us at the front desk. The charge for my 46 minute call to another city was over $82 US!!! They claimed that the front desk told me the cost when I called for instructions on dialing out. I didn't catch this extravagant charge since she spoke in Burmese and referred to the charge as "one point seven five" instead of one dollar and seventy five cents.

We explained that if I understood that the cost was $1.75, I would not have made the call. This was robbery. We argued with a manager for over an hour until we checked out. She explained that phone company charges them this special expensive rate for rooms rented by foreigners. BULL!! She then insisted that we stay for our remaining nights, offered us two cups of Ovaltine and insisted we pay the full charge. She said this was normal for Yangon, to charge US dollars and couldn't compare to other cities who charged Kyats, burmese money. Although this type of confusion had taken place before, they did not update their phone rate listed and placed near the phone in each room. It only list the cost for oversea calls and local Yangon calls which was 25 cents US a minute. She wasted over an hour our time, trying to get more US dollars out of us.

We walked out paying for our room which was $32 a night, and $50 for the phone call within Myanmar. What a rip off. The manager continued to ask for more money. She could careless about customer service or respect, she displayed greed under a facade of hospitality, a reflection of the government and circumstances that rules this poor country.

This place is a cultural vacuum that is hard to fill or define. It does have a wonderful location next to Traders Hotel and a block from the "Scott Market". One has the feeling that little goes unnoticed and there is just something ODD but strangely affecting about the place. It has been about two years since I stayed there but I stopped by last week just to checknout the vibe. They are doing some referbishing so they are in step with the tone of the times. It is getting hard to find a reasonable hotel in Rangoon so the Central is looking to be a more attractive option at an affordable price. The Chinese food was good.

I did not use group tour. I came over from Singapore and the tour agency we used - Chan Brothers - organised a private tour for us. It was actually not expensive and we really enjoyed the individual guide, limousine and service. They cover all the tourist sites and you go at your own pace.
