I visit Myanmar and the city of Yangon each year, sometimes several times per year. And I’ve been doing it since 2009. I have stayed in a variety of places. There are many hotels that welcome foreigners and they are generally
grateful to have your business.
Maybe it’s just because I genuinely love the Burmese people and most of them can see it. But for me, the staff of Hotel 63 is the best. It is named for the street where it’s located. The Sri Lankan manager is very gracious and serving but the whole staff, especially the young ladies at the front desk, just seems to be genuinely happy you’re there. The hotel is clean. Their laundry service is quick, very efficient, and cheap.
Breakfast is a buffet that includes both Eastern and Western favorites and special orders are welcomed. You can even get a reasonably decent cup of coffee and as much as you like. The restaurant is open and available throughout the day for dining and room service seems to be available just about any time. Wi-Fi is generally good, best in the lobby. Getting a taxi is as easy as informing the girls at the desk. The beds are very comfortable, especially when your exhausted and collapse after a hard day on Myanmar roads. The hotel is close to the “Ocean Shopping Center, the Bogyoke Market, Sule Pagoda, many restaurants, the Yangon River, and the township of South Dagon. Most rooms have very cold air conditioning. Hotel 63 maintains a very quiet atmosphere and I appreciate it. More and more, each time I visit, it is apparent that they are trying to make Hotel 63 a class act. But best of all, these amenities are given at a much lower price than most other hotels of the same calibre within the city. This is my preferred home away from home in the city of Yangon.
