Stay here for two nights. Did not expect anything but still got a little bit frustrated. The aircon broke once in my room and after switching the room, its still barely worked. Room is really old especially the bathroom. I was thinking "wow, did I travel back to 80s?". I chose the most basic room and its just so small.... More

owner should really consider if it is worth to have guests during such a principal renovation process. we were in the centre of big reconstruction. rooms were shabby, bathroom makes you feel dirty under skin, pigeons above the bathroom has made terrible noise.breakfast was also poor. the only highlight is personnel- they were really trying their best to be kind...

Hotel was being renovated during our stay. The hotel should be beautiful once renovations are complete. The grounds are lovely and there is a temple at the rear of the property and more within walking distance. Plenty of eateries and a money changer near by. Location is actually perfect - half way between Old Bagan and busy Nyaung Oo.

Fantastic place to stay. Situated conveniently at the outskirts of the town and close to everything. Extremely friendly staff who are helpful with everything and bending backwards to make you feel welcome and comfortable. Although the hotel is currently undergoing an expansion and renovation (low season) I found it peaceful and serene. Lovely pool. Rooms are clean with aircon and... More

My first impression of the Bagan Umbra was disappointment. The rooms are pretty run down for the price (they are doing a huge renovation but it's not finished yet) and I had to switch rooms as the first one had a faulty A/C unit. I did have pretty decent wifi in my room, and I had heard that wifi was... More

The staff at this hotel are just so warm and willing to help with anything. A big thank you to them for the care given while I was sick. Much appreciated. I stayed in a what was called a super standard room for 2 nights and a deluxe for one night. The beds in both rooms were comfortable. The air... More

this hotel allow early check in during low season, which is a good point as the night bus usually arrived too early in the morning (my bus arrived at bagan at 0230). Hotel's decoration is old fashion, have a feeling of 90s. Room is old but overall clean. staffs are helpful. breakfast is not so fantastic but acceptable.

The Hotel has a good location, with easy access to the main attractions (by bike) and with good restaurants in the sorroundings. The staff is nice and the breakfast has a good variety. The major problem was the bathroom, that was disgusting.

Location is great and they hire bicycles and e-bikes (electric bikes) to you for a nominal fee. The staff here were very helpful in helping me book a flight from Bagan to Yangon, and a taxi to get to the airport as well. Room itself was basic but had everything we needed - let's be honest you will be spending... More

I strongly recommend anyone visiting Bagan during the hot season to get a hotel with a pool! (if you thought the rest of Myanmar was hot, wait until you arrive here..) The Bagan Umbra is a great place to stay. We got a fairly cheap deal through Agoda, so we were happy anyway. We loved the pool and the breakfast.... More
