Tired but still delivering
No. 568, 80th St, between 33rd and 34th Sts, Mandalay T: (02) 35210, (02) 71404 F: (02) 35646
Mere blocks from Diamond Plaza, Zay Cho market and the Shan night market, Myit Phyar Ayer Hotel has a good location outside of the main cluster of budget guesthouses.
On entrance to this Chinese-style hotel, the lobby and internal walkways are a bit dim but staff brighten things up a bit with their friendly attitude. The air-con rooms themselves have a tired energy that sometimes takes the form of dust, and they do give off a feeling of being past their prime. Furnishings are abundant with multiple wooden tables, chairs and wardrobes, plus TV and minibar. Windows are wide with city views that help you look past the weary conditions and all amenities remain in decent working order, including the clean and well-equipped bathroom.
