I am staying at YMCA in Yangon for the mean time of finding jobs. The place offers decent room and room services. It includes a fan with rooms and air-conditioned rooms. It is your choice of stay in YMCA.
This place can be rent with reasonable prices for training and meetings. There are rooms for 20 people, 50 people. Only one thing is , this building is not barrier free as there is no elevator it is difficult for wheel chair users. There are also room rental. This place is in central Yangon and easy accessible and can also explore around old architecture buildings of Yangon. This place is very close to weekend book market which is also interesting place for book lovers.
Yangon YMCA getting 2house but hard to location, i booked old one but can't find it over half hour. then, i went to his new house instead. the staff is nice & need not to ask me going old house. anyway, it is quite old & believe is school at day time. anyway, the price is cheap
Booked to stay here in what my wife who is from Myanmar was told was a superior room. The elevator was not working so it was a climb to the sixth floor at midday in hot season. The room while spacious does not appear to have had a paint job since the 1940's. The air con was the type that sits in a window and had no control, you had to stand in the bed to switch it on and off. The bed linen though clean was stained. The charge was 35 USD per day for me plus an extra 5 USD per day for my wife to stay in the room with me and that charge was the local price so I can only guess that for a foreign couple to stay in this room it would be 35 x 2. Breakfast (if I dare call it that) is included and was oily rice and fried egg, one day,some strange bread with margarine and sugar the next, and a cup of instant coffee. Saving graces were the friendly staff. I know the income helps good causes but to offer such poor amenities at such high a price is just taking advantage of people. We moved out after 3 days and found a much better place at the same price. Review to follow.…
Since 2006 the prices have gone thru the roof in Burma, yet sadly the quality has not. I can overlook that because I do love Burma like no other country. I stayed here last Dec and enjoyed my stay. Our double room was clean, air-con worked, we had a view over the city, the breakfast was the poorest I've eaten but again the setting was great. An open fire, an elegant old lady and an egg of bread. As a photographer I loved it.
