This is an average hotel, although the efforts and service levels of the staff attempt to make it better than average. The food is adequate and you must pre-order dinner as it takes a long time to prepare. Separate buildings on the large grounds house rooms that are spacious, albeit spartan. The bathrooms are adequate but with no place to... More

Stayed here one night after visiting the Golden Rock and surrounding temples earlier in the day. Walked down to the hotel in the dark with a flash light. Had porters carry bags which worked very well. Hotel was very comfortable and enjoyed the breakfast in the morning. Service was a bit sketchy and many staff were trainees. White bread only... More

The hotel is situated on the 2nd base camp. So it's a 45 min walk (downhill) after enjoying the spectacular sunset at the Golden rock which is highly recommended. The walk all the way down is on paved road, although if it's been raining or wet, it could be a little slippery. You absolutely MUST bring a touch light for... More

The hotel is beautiful and the staff was very accommodating. No complaints at all with the room or restaurant. Plus wifi was a plus for being out in the middle of no where. Why only 3 stars? Because when we booked the staff never warned about the 45 minute walk to the hotel from Golden Rock! This was no easy... More

the hotel has great views to all the mountains around and the valley. the rooms have towels and blankets and they give you a tooth brush and a shampoo sample, so if you are on a tour and they tell you to pack just to overnight there, take it into account. the food at the restaurant is very improvable and...

We stayed here as part of a tour for one night. The location is between the Golden a Rock and the last stopping point for the large trucks that ferry passengers the 45 minute journey to the rock. From the rock it's about 25 minutes downhill walk, so not good for anyone with walking difficulties. The hotel itself was clean... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night. A bit expensive but the room was large and clean. The bed allright. The staff was very nice and helpful. The food was average at best. It is quite a ride to get there with the open back truck and a good walk. All in all, great location, Ok room, poor food.

We stayed here for one night on our way back from visiting the Golden Rock. Our twin bedded room was basic but clean and comfortable. Great shower but no hot water tap in the wash basin. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. Our group of 6 people ate an evening meal in the hotel restaurant but one of the... More

This place was really expensive for us - we paid $95 which we had to pay in advance by wiring money to our Yangon hotel who transferred the money to the Golden Rock hotel (we had tried to get into the Mountain Top hotel but it was fully booked). There are not many accommodation options on the top of the... More
