Myanmar, Yangon and Around
Info : Hotel Esta
Hostel Esta does a great job at being clean, bright and simple, and just happens to be in a superb location for sightseeing in Yangon. You can expect friendly service, decent food, clean and modern amenities.
You’re in a great location to explore the colonial architecture and array of breath-taking gilded temples that Yangon has to offer. Most of the city sights can be reached from the hotel by foot in about half an hour and you can dine at the hotel’s restaurant when you get back from your sightseeing adventures.
The rooms are clean, minimalistic, generous in space and functional with comfortable beds and good amenities. All in all, it’s a good quality and functional mid-range option in Yangon: lacking a bit in atmosphere but making up for it in value.
Comfort - This is our lead in category. There will generally be a no frills approach and while some will be characterful, some will do exactly what it says on the tin - provide a clean, comfortable and good value place to spend the night. These places are normally 3* hotels.
[Our cruise] was excellent in every way and we had a memorable holiday. Terry our guide made the trip for us. I couldn't recommend [it] more highly, perfect in every way. Loved the informality of it all and the evening cocktails were delicious. Trips ashore clambering up the banks of the Irrawaddy into little villages were quite delightful and locals fascinated by us. Excellent mixed itinerary organised by our guide which took in all aspects of life.
