We were booked into this hotel by Burmese friends as it was close to their home - an important factor as we were taken to their home for our mid-day and evening meals. North Dagon is a fast developing residential area, fairly close to the airport (about 30 mins). It still has a very local feel with a lively market. The hotel staff were extremely helpful and attentive, despite having virtually no English. But more than made up for by the generous Burmese breakfasts of fried rice or noodles, with fried eggs, sandwiches, cut fruit and copious amounts of green tea!
