I stayed in this hotel for 4 nights in July 10 and it has been a good experience in staying this holiday. Originally I booked the Thande Hotel one month before my holiday, however, I received an email from this hotel 4 days before my departure, telling me that their swimming pool will be temporarily closed for renovation. Then all in a hurry, I booked the Thiripyitsaya hotel with the recommendation from the Yangon agency and it only cost US$100 per night for 3 persons in a Deluxe Room with Garden View (but I can see the river too from the balcony). Actually it is cheaper to get book via the agency by internet.
Overall, the service is good, staff are very friendly and nice, pool is good for adult coz I don't think they will change the water so frequent. Room is spacious and clean, quiet and good for a relaxing holiday. Staff can speak pretty good English and no problem in communication. Breakfast is fine. Be ready to get power off in the middle of night (very common across Myanmar) but they have the generator and so it will take around 15 mins for the air-conditioning to restart.
The location is not close to restaurant but close to the site. Actually, in Bagan, lots of people ride on bike or horse cart and it takes around 25 mins to the town centre. Yet it is a wonderful ride if you start after 3:00pm to escape from heat. The hotel charged me $5 per half day/ $8 per day (till late night) per bike (condition is ok according to Myanmar standard).
