This hotel was once (not long ago) a beautiful resort. The location is fabulous. But....... The investment and maintenance in this hotel has been nil. Anything that is broken remains broken. The cleaning is not up to the mark at all. The pool is green and cloudy, the rooms are not clean (observe the mops for confirmation of this), the... More

We loved this place and stayed an extra four days than planned! The rooms are comfy, nice bathrooms with bathtub and balcony. We were on second floor and had great views towards the temples. Pool is terrific, breakfast is good, location is perfect. Nice and quiet and easy access to the temples by foot. Good price too. Friendly, helpful staff.... More

The room was dark and dingy in appearance with paint peeling off the bedroom walls and black mould on the bathroom ceiling. The walls were paper thin so every word and movement could be heard from the couple next door. Internet was free but intermittent, and slow when working at all. Food in the restaurant was cheap but the vegetable... More

The hotel and amenities are OK but my main problem with this hotel is its location. I would not recommend staying anywhere in New Bagan. It is really away from most of the restaurants and other sites so we needed to take a taxi to Nyaung U where most of the nice restaurants are.

I am a little puzzled by the negative reviews here about rooms being dark dirty and tired. We stayed in one of the upstairs rooms and were pleasantly surprised by the tasteful decor and great views. Also lovely to relax by the pool after a dusty day visiting the temples which are close. Breakfast is fine by Myanmar standards and... More

Kumudara has everything to be a nice hotel; but I just didn's like it. We had a normal room with two seperate beds. It was all a little bit old and dark. The complex isn't well maintained. As well with the swimming pool; they didn't make it a nice area. The breakfast is fair but nothing special. Hopefully they gonna... More

From the review in the travel book, i was expecting a bit more. In a quiet setting about 10-15 minute walk from town (but not many restaurants in the town). If you like to be away from it all this might be a good location. There are bikes at the hotel you can rent for cheap and temples near by... More

Order a suite, and get an unspoiled view at the pagodas. You can have more luxury for your money, but not this view. The balconies is full of piegeon dong, but ask them to clean it. The rooms are nice and large (junior suite) Here is quiet, friendly and perfect views.

The hotel was peaceful and rather isolated. The grounds, views and pool were good. but the rooms were poor and badly in need of renovation, especially the bathrooms. We were disappointed that our reservation request,s regarding rooms, were not complied with. The food was good and very reasonably priced but service was very slow.

No idea what we payd, since we're on a roundtrip with on average hotels (e.g. 50-70€). The staff is very friendly, but seems quite headless. Breakfast buffet isn't a lot, but well cooked -- just not kept warm. Rooms are nice, but the beds are filthy. I'm tolerant, but bloodstains arent' quite necessary. Wifi suffers from both: not enough accesspoints... More
