Stayed one night on a short weekend trip to Bagan from Yangon. I arrived after a night bus and was able to get breakfast right away, and get into my room for a quick nap. The room itself was pretty basic, the best part about this hotel is the pool. Location is also quite good, near the temples. I got... More

We spent 2 nights in this hotel. We read the reviews before we came but we also got very nice conversation with the reservation staff so we decided to book with them. Room was clean and re-arranged well each day. The staff was friendly with us too. One of the best points here is their location, very easy to access... More

Probably the worst hotel I have ever visited. I will go in chronological order here (as a history teacher its comes naturally!) We arrived around 5am having had an overnight coach from Yangon. The receptionist was asleep having undone his shirt and looked very surprised to see me (despite me emailing to let the hotel know we would be arriving... More

In terms of access to the Bagan site this is a good spot, about half way between Nyuang U ( busier, more touristy but less temples) and Old Bagan. For exploring on a bicycle this was just right, especially for evening sorties out for sunset, I think from Nyuang U you would require an E- bike rather than a peddle... More

We booked a standard room in this hotel which was ok. Unfortunately we couldn't help but notice terrine smell from the nearby sewage. My partner spoke to the manager and immoderately we got upgraded to another room. And the difference was just unbelievable. It was a deluxe room in what appeared to be a new wing/new hotel. Bed was comfy,... More

This hotel is so accommodating, the staff are so lovely and sorted out scooters for us when we arrived. The wifi was great and the free breakfast was so delicious and such a treat. The bed was very comfortable, the showers warm and the location brilliant. I could not fault this place!

We booked the superior room and it is not what you see in the web. As we arrived and saw it was a disgusting room and we asked for something better. They showed us the Deluxe room but there is no difference between the superior. After long discussion we got the Grand Deluxe Room for approx 50USD per night on... More

We stayed here for two nights. We are backpackers who had the cheapest room, which was still lovely. The pool is unbelievably nice, the staff are so helpful and friendly and the breakfast is amazing! We arrived at 6am after a pretty terrible night bus, and my two friends were sick, and the hotel greeted us with fresh juice and... More

I booked a standard room at this hotel based on the pictures available on their website and at Hoteis.com. However, when I got to the hotel, I was given a room completely different from what I had seen. It was run-down, dirty, dark (as the curtains must be closed for privacy). The bathroom was old and horrible. The shower didn't... More
