Do not stay here. You can see in advance the difference between rates for foreigners as it's marked on the big board behind the desk. At $60 it was a total rip off, the local pay $25 to $30 and that's overprices too.
This hotel had been booked for us by an agent in Yangon as we arrived late afternoon and were taking a 6 am flight to Sittwe the following day. We don't normally use agents but this lady was very helpful in getting our plane tickets and offered to do this for us. I don't think she's ever seen the inside of the place and we will of course let her know never to put anyone there.
From the outside it looks okay, a tall building with large glass doors leading to a large foyer.
Took the lift up to the "delux" room on the 5th floor. What a DUMP. Cracks in the walls, dirty looking carpet, curtains stained and torn. The bathroom was awful. The bath wasn't dirty but the shower and taps were black as if they hadn't been cleaned in literally years. We reckoned there would be no use complaining as all the rooms would be the same.
As we went out to eat I said to the guy behind the front desk "this is NOT a good hotel, it is dirty, bad hotel" and he looked at me nodded and said "yes, bad hotel". We were obviously not the first to complain. The staff as everywhere in Burma were nice and friendly, it is not their fault the hotel is such a pit.
There were many other hotels in this area as it's only about a 12 minute ride from the airport. I'm sure they are ALL better than this one.
It was with some trepidation that I arrived at Nice Day Hotel. I'd read the negative reviews but I wasn't going to pay $200 a night. The Nice Day Hotel was ok, the staff are helpful, the bed linen & towels are clean :) the AC works and there's free wifi. The room itself is ok, but its an old building and I'd say from the smell of paint that they may be in the process of sprucing it up a bit. My only complaint and its not just here is that in Asia, the smoke free room isn't always understood, so I had a bathroom that smelt of cigarette smoke, I guess from another room. As for the price, all accommodation is overpriced in Yangon but this is often the way in countries that are developing tourism, it's not unique to Myanmar. Overall the Nice Day Hotel was ok for the 2 nights I stayed there.
