We stayed 1 night at this awful hotel, which was 1 night to long… I cannot understand the good reviews on trip advisor.. The only reason we chose this hotel, was because of the positive reviews… We arrived in the afternoon, to be greeted by a very unfriendly receptionist/owner. Who made us feel unwelcome. We were rushed to our room,... More

A hotel in the traditional style. Large well equipped rooms. But everything is quite basic. Free WiFi. Comfortable bed. Sheets OK, but the towels were knackered. Charming staff and good food. Ideal for backpackers.

We stayed here on Christmas Eve. The rooms are spacious and the bed strewn with flower petals which was a nice touch. But what made it really special was our hosts building a warming charcoal fire in the courtyard, inviting us for a pre-dinner drink of local plum wine and presenting every guest with a gift wrapped in beautiful handmade...

We stayed in this hotel for one night in January 2014. It does not look much on the outside but the rooms are actually little chalet-like rooms behind the hotel frontage. Ours had a little terrace with seats facing the garden and with views of Pindaya Caves. The hotel staff are friendly and we liked the flowers on the bed... More

I stayed briefly here when I became very ill with a migraine headache on a homestay in nearby monastery. The owner?/manager? of this hotel (he had me call him just Sai) was coordinating the transportation/meals for our tour group and quickly transported me down to the Golden Cave at 6AM to recover. The room was spacious and quiet with a... More

The Golden Cave isn't the nicest-looking hotel in town, but when brought there by a tour, I was pleasantly surprised. Our room was large and attractively decorated with wooden ornaments and fresh flowers sprinkled in patterns on the bed. We also had a little balcony with two chairs, overlooking greenery and the famous caves. Everything was very clean. Bathroom was... More

We stayed two nights here, and went for a two day trek organised by the hotel. Our room was large (a superior room), clean, nicely decorated and covered with flower petals. It was a bit chilly at night. But the service was excellent, and breakfast was pretty good. We paid $35. My only gripe would be the trekking guide. We... More

We stayed 2 nights here mainly to see the fantastic Pindaya Cave Temple and to experience trekking. We arranged our trekking through the hotel's Win Htun. We did a 2 days' trek with an overnight stay at a monastery in Yasakgyi. The trekking was a great experience. The 4 of us were escorted by 3 guides and they carried the... More
