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.

Hotel 51 is a decent hotel but in a very dingy lane in yangon. its quite near the happening place and the city centre but quite far from the airport. It takes around 1 hour drive in the crazy traffic of the city and the best timing is before 7 am or after 9 pm. The food at the hotel is quite nice though and has a homely environment. It has a small bar as well . Once you enter the hotel it does have a hotel feeling but from the outside its very shabby and very misleading.

We stayed for 3 nights in a standard double, the room was new, clean and the air con worked very well. A nice large window with an ok view, there were gaps at the side that the Mosquitos could get through though.

If the staff were like the rest of the staff in Myanmar then I would have rated the hotel as excellent however it seemed that the manager could not be bothered to help with anything (Myanmar is a country where you need the help of your hotel often).

They try to make money anyway they can. They first tried to charge us $20 to check in slightly earlier, after we questioned this they dropped it.

The rates for the hotel hiring a driver for you are extortionate so don't use them for this.

We needed a taxi to take us to the big pagoda, we agreed a price and once the driver turned up the young man behind reception tried to DOUBLE the price. After arguing with him he eventually reduced it but didn't apologise for this and just laughed in our faces.

In summary, good hotel of you don't need their help, if you do then chances are you are paying double what you should.

This is the only hotel in Myanmar where the staff were like this to this.

We can't say enough good things about this wonderful hotel. It has all the charm of old Myanmar in a sparkling clean setting. The staff are attentive, helpful and always smiling. They just make you feel good!
The location is handily located around the corner from a fun street market and a fantastic restaurant called Lucky Seven. Both well worth a visit. This Saturday morning we took a taxi to Shwedagon Pagoda for sunrise which was one of those "pinch me" experiences!
We are returning to Yangon at the end of our trip for one night and will definitely be staying at Hotel 51. We loved it here!

The hotel has a ground floor and seven floors above with accommodation, six rooms on each of differing size and floor plan — arranged around a central lift-elevator. The Expedia website has the best collection of photos.

We could walk into town in about half an hour, depending on our destination. You could walk to the Shwedagon pagoda and the National Museum; however, it would take over an hour to reach them. The hotel will arrange a taxi; the fixed fare was 3,000 kyat.

Competence in English of staff at reception varied considerably; however, everyone whom we encountered was pleasant, friendly, helpful, courteous, cooperative and obliging, and tried to satisfy our modest requests. We obtained a top-floor room as we prefer. A free local newspaper in English was available from a rack at the side of reception.

With a parquet floor, our basically furnished room was compact with little free floor space in a manner reminiscent of a Japanese business hotel (larger rooms are available). It lacked a desk or work table. When we asked about the procedure for phoning overseas, we were told that one could only call within the country (arrange before you leave home to have people call you or somehow to use your cell phone if this is still the case).

The single-glazed, sliding windows in aluminium frames (which did not seal) had drainage holes and flyscreens. They admitted street noises, though not excessive at the time perhaps because of our room being on the top floor and facing a back lane with only light traffic; internally, though, we could hear the hum of the lift-elevator machinery when it was operating. Through the room door we could hear activities outside: doors slam, voices, housekeeping staff, etc. Soundproofing was just adequate if other people behaved considerately with restraint. The window had privacy and opaque, but not room-darkening, curtains.

The king-size bed, with back lighting, had a firm mattress, full, firm pillows, and a wall-mounted bedside table on either side but no reading lamp. One table had a telephone and the other a paper tissue dispenser. When we asked for extra pillows and coat hangers, someone promptly delivered them to the room. The remote-controlled, wall-mounted air conditioner worked well.

Opposite the bed was a small fridge which contained over-priced beverages (bought much more cheaply at any convenience store nearby), a wall-mounted counter (leaving just enough room to pass and get to the other side of the bed) with coffee-green tea making facilities, a wall-mounted, flat-screen TV above, and a luggage bench. To the left of the bed were two chairs but no table, a pity as there was space for one, and it would have been useful for using the computer. The closet, with four hangers, had shelves on one of which stood a room safe.

A high step up into the bathroom prevented water draining into the bedroom. With an occasional odor of drain and no bath, the bathroom itself was the shower area; consequently, the floor and everything around got wet when one took a shower. Two pairs of rubber thongs were provided in the bedroom to use while showering. Available were both a rain shower and telephone shower. On the taps-faucets, note that red can indicate cold and blue indicate hot! The water pressure and, to some degree, the temperature varied cyclically. Provided were two hand and two bath towels. Toiletries included two of each solid soap, shampoo and bath foam sachets, shower caps, toothbrushes and paste, and one comb. The sink had only cool-tepid water; the plug toggled: press down to close and then press down again to open. Occasional whiffs of cigarette smoke entered through the vent, probably from staff smoking on the roof. Air conditioning does not include the bathroom which, thus, was warm and humid.

The breakfast (6:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.) was rather basic and meager, commercial products, varied little, and soon became monotonous. The choice was mainly Asian style, but you could order eggs: fried, scrambled, omelet. The buffet selection included synthetic fruit juice drink (in a country with abundant fresh fruit), rice, noodles, fried vegetables, fried chicken with vegetables, chicken sausage, bread for toast, butter, strawberry jam, melon, coffee, tea, sugar, and powdered non-dairy creamer.

Given the room size we had and facilities provided, we thought the tariff excessive, in short, not good value given local conditions. It seemed a manifestation of charging more for foreign visitors, but without providing goods and services to justify it (do not be surprised if you meet a special price in the form of a foreigner surcharge, sometimes excessive, on other things elsewhere as well). Alas, this situation compared unfavorably with our experiences in other Asian countries with similar economic circumstances. We would look for another hotel were we to return to Yangon, as we are aware from other reviews that the owners have not rectified or attended to deficiencies.

There are not many conventional-style (enclosed and air conditioned) restaurants (as opposed to footpath-sidewalk street eateries with stools) in the vicinity of the hotel. The hotel kitchen will prepare a light meal (ask to see the menu) upon request 24 hours a day. There was a small Japanese restaurant a few blocks from the hotel which was a relief because it was air conditioned — even if the staff left the door open to serve diners outside..

We took a taxi from the airport to the hotel (10,000 kyat) which took about 45 minutes through night-time city traffic. You can order a fixed-fare taxi at the official taxi kiosk in the arrivals hall of the airport. The return taxi to the airport was arranged by the hotel staff (8,000 kyat). The trip took around 65 minutes through daytime city traffic and several traffic jams. Given the low fare and the long ride, we gave the driver an extra 2,000 kyat and told him that it was for buying petrol, since we understood that tipping was not standard convention and we did not want to encourage it.

Hotel 51 is a new hotel in the Pazundaug area of Yangon. We took a taxi from the airport which is north of town, completely through to the southern edge of town. This cost us about 8 dollars.
Upon entering the lobby we were greeted with a cool fruit punch, and a freshen up towlette. The bellboy showed us to our room on the 5th floor, which had a nice view over the rooftops, of surrounding pagodas and temples. The room was clean, modern and comfortable, as depicted in the photos. Breakfast was a nice little buffet every day.
Our only issue was the lack of hot water, which I informed the desk staff of.

Found this through various search engines and since most of the reviews were favorable gave it a try. Downtown and easily accessible to many tourist sites. Small modern facility, good plumbing and AirCon, friendly staff and clean. Breakfast buffet limited but OK. They do accept Visa & Mastercard and there is a brand new ATM at the front door. We left for the airport before the breakfast buffet opened so they fixed us box lunches to go. Nice touch.

Great location, and the staff were only too willing to go out of their way to assist - I have never seen somebody so disappointed when I managed to sneak in the front door and opening it myself! Breakfast provided is good, a mix of Asian and Western food. Room is quite spacious given the location, and I do love a good "towel animal sculpture" every day!

Hi All,

Was pleasantly surprised to find Hotel 51 after me & my 2 friends went around town searching for hotels which were charging 45-55 SGD for rooms that were filled with mould, low ceilings & even ignoring customers etc.. As 3 person rooms were hard to find, we usually check the room conditions out before deciding to stay at the hotels. The facilities were new and well kept and the room was big enough for the 3 of us. We chose the Deluxe Twin room with additional Bed and added up to around $45 SGD per person/per night.Apart from the facilities itself, what made this hotel stand out was its friendly & approachable staff. We went in as walk in customers but was offered a discount and was even given a fruit platter. For those who would like to check if they could provide discounts, book online or you could email or call them in advance to see what they can work out for you ;) We stayed for 2 nights on the 3rd & 4th Nov & every time we called the reception,they recognised us straight away. The staff also enquires if you need anything else from time to time. Loved the Fried Banana for their buffet breakfast! A little tip for fellow travellers, the Mohinga shop (Myaung Mya Daw Cho) just beside their hotel is really famous with the locals. Me & my friends had 5 bowls on our first day there. They also have a small market 2 streets away with the local produce and snack sellers in the morning that will whet ur appetite. 50th street is also a great Bar hangout area according to the local taxi drivers, too bad we didn't have a chance to go. We tried the Golden City Chetty restaurant 3-4 blocks away. The milk tea is different from the burmese version. Must Try!! The poori and prata is crispy too! Its a short walk 15 mins towards Scott Market as well. One thing to improve on would be the bathroom,the tiles could be quite slippery for kids or older people. Perhaps, you could install non slip mats.Well I shall let my pics do the talking now. Would definitely come back again for its price,comfort, excellent service and great location! :)

Best Regards,
Zin M.

This is a great new clean hotel in downtown Yangon located down a quiet road and although it is slightly out of the way it is around 15-20 mins walk to the centre where you can visit the old colonial buildings and Scott market. I was most impressed with staff at the front desk who were always so friendly and helped us with booking overnight buses and accommodation in our next destination in Myanmar. There was also a good variety of food - local and western - for breakfast. You won't go hungry!

We arrived there on September 2014 for our honeymoon. Ahhhh... Where to start?
To make it short:
1. Smelly room with tiny bathroom. It's a new hotel, yet lacks any style or pleasant Atmosphere.
2. Disgusting breakfast
3. Location is bad (downtown) and far from the center
4. Employees (apart from the manager) do not understand english which makes it hard to communicate or take any advise
5. The manager tried hard to help us and really had good intentions, but somehow he failed in giving a good service and mainly just talked about how important it is for him to give a good service... All the advices he gave us were not professional and he was so clueless. Just one example out of few: When leaving the hotel he ordered for us a taxi while we mentioned where we had to go. He assured us he explained the driver where to go, it was supposed to be 20 minutes drive, yet the driver (who didnt speak a word in english) took us for TWO HOURS!!! Around the city not knowing where the place is! Eventually we stopped him in the middle of nowhere and took another taxi. It was such a bad experience.
This hotel is really awful by all means. Just stay away! For this money just choose another..

Yes, no problem getting taxi from inside airport at Yangon even at 5 a.m. The man at the taxi desk ( next to the currency exchange) became the driver! Not expensive, but yes allow 40/45 mins but at that time in the morning the drive only took 20 mins; same as any capital cityt in the world- rush hour is hectic! Two things 1. Remember to change your curreny( us $ is best) into kyat at the airport. That is normally madness in terms of poor rates of exchange but you won't get better anywhere else and there are NO ATMS suitable for western debit cards anywhere!! So change what you need for your stay . 2. My driver knew where Hotel 51 was so I thought no more about the address, but after one or two outings by other taxis, I realised you need to know into only the street number ( obviously) but whether it's on upper, middle or lower 51 as the streets are part of a one way system and you can't just drive straight through. Hotel 51 is on upper 51 st. And I hope, like me, you will be very pleased you chose it!
