“Dirty”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

Must preface this by saying, I have stayed in some really cheap places in my travels, that we clean!! The sheets, rugs, towels were dirty!!! The staff was surprised by my husband ALL sleeping in the restaurant! Seems as if 'someone' could have been 'doing laundry'! No excuses for dirty!!

Stayed August 2012, traveled on business

We stayed there for three nights and the manager was very cooperative and helpful, I had some issues with locals but he never said no despite the fact people were against him on having a Muslim to stay in hotel and the day they were full,they arranged a room for us in Nobel hotel, small but a homely place to stay, no elevators and not pristine clean but the food was good and location is excellent, almost everything is on walking distance

Stayed here two nites on the way to Mrauk U and two nites on the way back. Small but comfortable room. Friendly staff, good service, nice little restaurant (nothing fancy but enjoyed the food). I liked Sittwe and glad I spent a bit of time there rather than rush to and from Mrauk U. Lookout point is great at sunset whist sipping a Myanmar Lager or coconut juice. Locals great and friendly - enjoyed their company - spent time with both local Arakanese buddhists and Bengali and Rohingya muslims

OK, it's not a great hotel but for one night it appears to be the best bet in town. Breakfast was fine dinner, well it never happened! A large group of business men were commencing a large banquet and this was such an effort on the resources of the dining room that we were ignored!
Supper was beer and peanuts instead. Bed was ok, room ok, but you must be fit, there are loads of stairs, so be warned if you have mobility problems. Do get to the top to see the fruit bats at twilight, they make up for the lack of food!

Room Tip: Try a room lower down if stairs are a problem, though the restaurant is at the top!

The room I had on my way to Mrauk U was dark and the bathroom stank!, on the way back I had a room in the front which was better and the bathroom was fine. The hotel is basic and poor value for money, because as someone travellng through you have very limited choice. I am scoring it average because there is litlte choice otherwise I would score it poor. The staff were average, not particularly friendly but helpful enough. The breakfast okay. I felt there was no incentive on their behalf other than to see you on your way.

However the viewpoint is great to visit, as is the fish market. Also I had a fantastic meal at Nisspandi!!

After trying the Nobel down the road, we were happy to stay at this location, just across a funny bunch of fruit bats in the trees on the university grounds. The rooms are OK but the restaurant is not that good. Breakfast is fine, though.
