I booked for two nights one day earlier by phone to the Old Men who used to be Owner of this motel. As I am a local and single;, they said they can give me a double room with AC for 22,000 kyats. I said I will leave late 16:30 pm from Yangon to Hpa An, so probably will arrive to the motel at 23:00 pm, they know my situation, I gave them my local name and they confirmed the booking. When my arrive 22:30 pm there they reception door is locked, his son came up and said all of our rooms are full, he said his father don't remember my booking and maybe he forgot to write down your name. I know very well that they ignore my booking. So I left. As it is Kayin New Year Period, all of the hotel,motel, B&B and guest houses are full, I spent one hour in the middle of the night finding my room to sleep. Finally I got one. At next morning, I go to them and tell them about the situation of ignoring my reservation, I noticed that his father know my rsvp very well, they just ignored it. All of the rooms already check out and they prepared for coming night. Then I asked them I can reserve for tonight again and ask them the price. The old men said the room is AC is 35,000 kyats for me, price suddenly went up. I would never give that price because I can stay that price with any decent three star hotel in city. Stay away from this hotel, they are GREEDY and they can't make commitment to any reservations.…
Stated on booking.com that they allowed pets. So when I arrived after a 7 hour drive from Yangon with my small dog I was surprised when I was turned away. I was put on the phone with owner who only spoke over me and didn’t care what I had to say. Probably for the best, the hotel looked pretty rough from what I saw.
good budget option big rooms fridge and plenty of hot water , no TV but that is not a problem , good breakfast ,10 minute walk from clock tower ,15 minutes to huge local markets good eating options close by , management helpful with ongoing ticketing and local tours , bus to Yangon will pick you up at front of hotel
Staff is really very friendly and helpful. They do all they can to help you to organize your trip Rooms are large and very clean and breakfast is really very good The hotel is well situated and not too close to the strand street, so it's really quiet
If you are looking for a nice place to stay Soe Ko Ko is definitely the place. In family, alone or with some fiends the hotel is perfect. We are few meters from the center of the city (15-20 min walking). The staff is extremely friendly and so helpful. The owner is always willing to recommend us the best ways to visit the city. We stayed 2 nights and were 100% satisfied by the service. The rooms are clean and spacious. The breakfast is included and very good. You can also ask for some specialities, they're very good.
