Stayed here twice, once while traveling with a group and then another time on a solo trip. When you are running around with a group you definitely overlook some of the details and see them as just adding comedy to the trip.
This is a nice hotel. It has a lovely pool, a gorgeous view of the river with a large deck to relax on, there are ruins on the hotel grounds, the staff tries their best. The location is in old Bagan and if you rent a bicycle you are just a short distance away from incredible ruins.
The main thing I realized is that this hotel needs to be updated. Getting wifi is extremely iffy/unrealistic. On my first trip it was not even an option and during my second stay the staff said it was hooked up and worked well yet still I (and other guests) could never get a connection which lasted more than two minutes. The rooms are fine. The AC units and refrigerators can make a lot of noise and not all facets are leak-proof. The staff's grasp of English is a bit hit or miss but if you are patient they will do their best.
I would not dismiss this hotel and I believe that as tourists rates increase this hotel will continue to get better and better. It is a charming place in Bagan.
