novatel opens a fancy hotel
i stopped in at a newly opened Novotel Hotel in Yangon. it's walking distance with decent sidewalks from the apartment and they have good coffee. the pool on the roof is amazing and for a short time was open to expat for free which was really nice as the weather was 100+/39+. it was an effort to win over some expats as the initial opening had not gone well they were struggling a bit as early guests were arriving and the paint was still wet all the walls. in particular the staff was criticized because they were so pretentious. yeah, girls you get wear heels and short skirts at work but it's still a service job so adjust your attitude.
