Yangon, Beautyland II is a very good choice & about as centrally located as possible. It' next to Sakura Tower on Bogyoke Aung San Rd & 33rd St. Ocean Pearl in Yangon is not a poor choice either, you can try it here: Mainland 2 is a good guest house & makes a free transfer to the city centre, from here it is about 15-20 minutes: If you are looking for something dirty, you can try The Garden GH directly at the Sule Pagode, but you will be better off, as there is a much higher sales of people there.
One great choice is the Queen Inn on the other side of the channel. Teak is another good choice, beautiful rooms & good division, The Remember Inn is another good one. The Royal City is another good, they have a budget GH & another soft toys range choice.
