                close to schwdagon, nice balcony, friendly staff

                the owner seems to want the ngf to be an international hotel - but he has not shared his image with the staff, does not live there himself, and has a long way to go. do not accept a room on the fourth floor! the showers don't work! hotels in yangon are not cheap or plentiful at the 3* range, but you can proble find better. however the staff were excellent and helpful, breakfast was good and the north entrance to the schwedagon was only a 15 minute walk away.

                Location

                Nice location and friendly staff, good breakfast. But any add in services like water in the room or taxis booked by hotel ridiculously overpriced eg wanted 8000 for taxi to airport, and I paid 5000 stopping taxi outside myself. A few similar examples. There are better places in Yangon for sand price. Staff very friendly though - like everyone in Myanmar. Thanks!

                The air conditioning is super strong. Beds are comfortable. Toilet was a bit old even though it is quite a new hotel. For it is not built too long ago, many taxi drivers do not know the location. WiFi is stable and staffs were helpful and friendly.

                Breakfast

                The hotel looked fantastic at first glance. very clean in the dining area and reception. Then you get to your room and it starts looking dirty. The bedsheets were a bit dirty and the bathroom had what looked like rat poo in it. Tons on flies ants and spiders in the room. When it was cleaned they either didnt clean it or missed a lot. We only had toilet paper once in 4 days. The staff that work on reception are very ignorant, don't speak any english and dont even want to talk or help you. If you ask them a basic question they turn to the male staff (restaurant staff and room staff) to sort it out. Like I asked them for a taxi and they had no idea until the restaurant staff came over and got us one. I wouldn't stay here again. The only good thing about it was the cold rice and eggs for breakfast and that it was walking distance to the swedagon pagoda.

                cleaniness, quiet surrounding and helpful security staff

                the room's sound proofing is horrible. you can practically hear people's footstep, when they were walking along the corridor. the air-conditioning was "spitting" out ice and water. the air condition was making loud noise between 2am to 4am. it was so loud that it sounded as if it's gonna explode anytime! the service provided were not prompt. when i inform them about the air con's condition, they didn't offer other rooms or give any advices. until my girlfriend and myself went to the counter to make a complaint to the manager and requested for the change, then they made the change. i was transferred. i was very pleased initially as the air condition was not like the one in room. however, i could hear footsteps and the bed creaking coming from. the bathroom size was pretty small. once i am in the bathroom, i could only close the door when i am near the toilet bowl. i could not close the door properly too. when i was, i remembered making sure that the door was securely closed before leaving for breakfast. however, when my girlfriend and i returned to the room after breakfast, to my horror of horror, the door was open agar! how can this happen? i didn't even display any signs or requested for any room service or whatsoever! i made a complaint to the manager and he said he would investigate. however, after waiting for an answer for about a week, there wasn't any reply. the breakfast for the hotel is a joke. in a 1-2 star hotel, i was able to eat whatever amount i want. however, for this, i would need to pay for extra portion.

                Our stay was really good! The staff was nice and helpful, the food was great, a great japanese and burmese/chinese restaurant near by. You should definitely go at the 7th floor and go upstairs, on the roof. The view is amazing at night, especially with the Shwedagon Pagoda!
