“The best choice in Monywa”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2011

Started off at the budget Shwe Taung Tarn hotel. Do not stay there. It is dreadful. Quickly moved to the Monywa Hotel. What a delight. Clean, spacious, good bathrooms, good service. We recommend you ask for the family room. You will pay a little more, but it is certainly worth it.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2009

We saw both the standard room and superior room, it was only 5USD difference and the superior room had a much nicer bathroom. However since it was only a one night stay we stayed in the standard room. It was comfortable and quiet. I was not so impressed by the breakfast. Nice walking distance to the main streets.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2008

As the previous reviewer noted, there aren't many choices in Monywa. We decided to stay here after learning that the Win Unity, in addition to being more expensive for the rooms themselves, also charges in dollars for food and drink at their restaurant. They're also a little more remotely located, if that matters for you.

The hotel grounds were nicely kept up, and somewhat park-like with lots of shade trees. There seemed to be different building areas for the different types of room on offer: standard set off in one area, superior in another, rooms for locals elsewhere still. The buildings seemed a little worse for the wear; although seemingly well maintained (clean, fresh paint), there were strange holes in the seams of the floor, and regardless of how low we had the volume, you could hear the TV very loudly outside the room.

We ate at the restaurant. It was mediocre Chinese at best. Skip it.

We appreciated the change-up in breakfast here from the other hotels and guesthouses we had stayed at: it was buffet style, and included many Burmese dishes, such as fish soup, sticky rice, fried beans, etc. This is a nice change from the standard bread, fried eggs, and Tang on offer seemingly everywhere else.

This was our cheapest lodging found that included AC. It did take a while for the AC to cool the whole room (it was actually a good sized room), but it eventually got the job done.

Since there isn't much choice in town, you make the choice based on whether you want to pay a premium for a slightly nicer bed up the street. We decided it wasn't worth it and found a decent value here at the Monywa Hotel. It was certainly acceptable for one night.

There's not much choices in Monywa apart from Monywa hotel and more expensive Win Unity Hotel. Monywa hotel has better location where the good local restaurants are in walking distance. An internet cafe is next to the reception. The food at the hotel is not up to par. The hotel has large shady compound, clean rooms with working a/c, mini-bar and a sat. TV. The room rates are quite reasonable.

  • Liked — Good location with reasonable price
  • Disliked — old rooms, expensive food
