More of a grimace than a smile
10-11 Bogyoke Road, Pyay T: (053) 25 142, (053) 25 169
It's more of a grimace than a smile, but the rooms here (and there are plenty of them) are of a very good size, and some come with air-con.
Bathrooms are just okay; the one we were shown was extremely fumey but otherwise fine. Facilities include TV and minibar and the rates include breakfast. Beds are super soft. Set on the busy Bogyoke Road and backing onto the train station, go for a room at the rear as the trains are far less frequent than the cars. This is considerably better value than the Pyay Strand and is extremely close to the railway station. Very limited English spoken.
