This was hands down the best place we stayed anywhere in Myanmar- Don't listen to any of the negative comments here! Yes, it may be a little pricey, but so are all guesthouses in Myanmar. Sure, the internet is sometimes slow, but please show me where it isn't in this country. The staff, particularly Lyn Nyat (the caretaker), truly make... More

I arrived at 430am and no one was in the lobby. The taxi driver yelled and banged on the door for 10 seconds and a lady and young man ran out to help me. I felt SO BAD for waking them up but they were not upset at ALL. Since that morning, my stay had been nothing but a 10/10.... More

They arranged airrline tickets, lending electric bikes and transfer service. All arrrangements are helpful and served reasonable price. We arrived at 5am around but we can use our room at free of charge. All staffs have best hospitality and friendly. Unfortunately, we can use free wi-fi sometimes. But other services are excellent. We would like to stay again.

Spent two nights at Ruby Tree Hotel. The hotel is fine but certainly not 5 stars worthy. The staff is friendly and the woman who runs it is as well - if a bit too much. The room was fine but the heavy brown walls were a bit depressing. We've stayed in some interesting places in developing countries and this... More

The service here is top notch. The lady who runs the hotel is totally charming, she is delightful and runs the hotel really well with service to the customer right at the top where it should be. Nothing was too much trouble, she arranged taxis, made sure that the room was ready for our return, cared about our welfare and... More

When we arrived to Ruby True hotel, we were greeted by the entire staff who was on duty that day, including Mr. Than, the owner. We were offered cold towels, fresh squished watermelon juice and a fresh fruit plate was delivered to our room immediately afterward. The hotel is unique in many bungalows beautifully situated surrounding a well-maintenance garden of... More

My husband, mother, sister & I spent 3 weeks in Myanmar and we stayed at Ruby True Hotel for 6 days during our visit to Bagan; we had the Deluxe bungalows. We were in Yangon & Inle lake 2 weeks prior; Ruby True definitely was my favorite hotel. This hotel is well-managed, with the owner on site during the busy... More
