The happy maker
Tucked away behind the train station, it doesn't feel like you're in the middle of the city centre at 79 Living Hotel.
It's on a street that sees less traffic than others, and rises high enough to give you a good view of the city and Mandalay Hill. Staff are young but competent and quick with a smile, while offering services such as free WiFi, a business centre, room service, airport transportation and an included breakfast at their restaurant. The Chinese style decor manages to cultivate a feeling of comfort that is not commonly found in Burmese hotels. Rooms have air-con, satellite TV, minibar, coffee- and tea-making facilities, and minimal but adequate furnishings. The bathrooms are well kept and clean, with hot and cold water and complimentary toiletries.
