“Excellent service, good location, very nice hosts”
We came to Yangon in the high season without reservations. This
hotel Aung Si, associated with Ocean Pearl has been very
accommodating and friendly. They are very centrally located on a
cute market street. They even helped us book bus tickets and taxi.

I've stayed in a few different rooms here and they've all been
good. The service is excellent, without being over friendly. It is
well located for walking distance to all the popular sites. They are
very email attentive and reply very fast, which is good today as
Yangon is almost booked up until next January. The new interest in
Burma is outstripping the supply, so book well ahead of your
arrival. I didn't and spent one full day walking around and calling
other hotels. Found one less quality and more money than Ocean Pearl

"Decent for Rangoon”
IN a country that's rapidly changing month-by-month, this review
will no-doubt be outdated soon.
Burma is going through a tourism revolution. It's hard to compare
places here with elsewhere in Asia because minimal tourism influx
has meant infrastructure isn't great for visitors.
This lack of tourist infrastructure is perhaps most true in the
major centres of Rangoon and Mandalay.
That in mind, Ocean Pearl Inn does a good job at what it sets out to
Yes, some rooms are without external windows, but it's clean and the
staff are super friendly. Mr Ocean Pearl is a bit hard-and-fast, but
he employs a friendly team that has your back.
Because Burma is recently opening up, it is hard to do a lot of
forward planning for travel inside the country - the team at Ocean
Pearl helped my friend and I map out an itinerary, given us the
flexibility we wanted.
Straight from the airport pick-up, I felt staff were eager to help
make my stay in Burma easy and hassle free, rather than trying to
take me for a ride and get as much money out of me as they could.
The hotel's in a good location, the rooms are much, much cleaner
than others I've had in Asia and I felt like I was in good hands
I would certainly recommend to friends.

I stayed at the Ocean Pearl 3x while in Myanmar, as I criss-crossed
the country. The location is good for getting out of the city
quickly if you are going to the airport or long-distance bus station
(about $8 from Ocean Pearl to airport/bus and $10 from airport/bus
to Ocean Pearl). It is an easy 1/2 km walk to Boateng Pagoda and
maybe a km to Schwe Pagoda.
If you get a room near the front there will be traffic noise. A room
towards the rear is quiet but might have no windows that open out to
anything, just a view of the building next door.
Breakfast is included and includes tea/coffee (coffee in Myanmar is
Nescafe), fruit and an egg. If you like your eggs "sunny-side up"
I'd suggest scrambled. I've yet to have a good sunny-side up egg in
Asia, they overcook it and Myanmar is no different.

actually quite tasty although I don't usually drink sweetened tea.
This is common in Myanmar. TV did not work. WIFI off and on but this

For the same room in this hotel in Bangkok you would pay less than
$10. But this is not Thailand and $30 is the going rate in Yangon
for a budget room. That being said, compared to others in the same
budget range, and even above, the rooms are a reasonable size and
clean. The bathrooms are not bad and have good hot water. The Ac
works well and there are generators when the power goes out, which
it will, so your Ac will keep running.
An unremarkable but decent breakfast and free airport pickup round
out the value.
Just remember that this is budget and your accommodation budget does
not goes as far in Burma as it does in other nearby Asian countries
and you won't be disappointed.
As for Yangon. Look past the well worn facades at the untouched
colonial buildings, both grand ones as well as the hundreds hidden
throughout the back streets and look past the snarling traffic and
decaying footpaths at warm people and the colliding worlds in which
they are living and you will see an interesting place that doesn't

First, if you're travelling to Yangon on a budget, lower your

say, Bangkok, particularly during the low, rainy season, it will not
get you far in Yangon.
I chose Ocean Pearl Inn because of the free airport transfer and
central location, both of which proved quite convenient. But on
arriving, it didn't take long to realize the OPI is absolutely no
frills, no fuss. It is clean, though my room had an odd smell in
addition to the overwhelming fumes of a recently varnished door.
The hot water was off for four days, which was... unfortunate, but
once it was fixed the shower was fine (again, no frills). The one
sort of traumatizing experience I had was the appearance of a GIANT
beetle-type thing (far too large to be a cockroach, unless it was
some sort of King of Cockroaches) under my bed. I got one of the

like quite a damp room; the bathroom, including the walls and door
never seemed to dry. The blocked shower drain obviously played a big
part here too.

upstairs, and the father-like manager was so kind that he helped us
to book taxi to bus terminal and accompany us to the taxi:D Would
like to stay again if travelling at Myanmar again

This review is actually for Ocean Pearl Inn 2 or Aung Si Guesthouse.
I'm giving it a high rating because of the lovely hotel staff who
are always ready to help with a smile. Special mention to Mimi who
speaks perfect English and she helped us book our accommodations in
Bagan and Mandalay after. The guesthouse offers very basic features
and facilities: comfy bed, own t&b with hot/cold shower, simple
breakfast, free mineral water everyday and free airport pick up
(plus point!). I think the only negative thing I can say is the
smell of the bathroom but the hotel staff offered to spray air
freshener to eliminate the odor. The outside of the guesthouse is an
alley full of market vendors, there are also restaurants near the
place. I can't complain much because of the very low price, paid $25
a night for two pax. The accommodation served its purpose.
