First of all ignore the map showing this hotel as being in Sittwe - it's really convenient, towards the middle of Mrauk U, handy for the temples and for restaurants. The grounds with the carved fountain wooden bungalows are very atmospheric. You have a little balcony that you can take your chair onto and sit on. Inside our room was... More

Good hotel. The cleaness is good. The room are tipical wooden "bungalow". The hotel is placed 10minute on foot from the main road. To reach the hotel from the harbor is good to use the classical tuk-tuk. the staff is super gentle.

The rooms are all set up as little local Mrauk U Style temples. Bathrooms are somewhat poor. Rooms are clean though. Dining/breakfast room is a bit poor as well, but it is fully OK. Friendly service but a lack of english. Very central located for visiting the temples and the village

Beautiful hotel and probably one of the best in Mrauk U. Excellent service, beautiful rooms with airco, but not always warm water in the morning. Wifi only in the lobby. I got ill form eating in the restaurant. Mrauk U is not a big town, other decent restaurants at walking distance

The Shwe Thazin is a reasonable option, but don't expect any extras--like bathmats or washcloths or a tea kettle. The breakfast is fine, if a bit pedestrian. The bathroom in our room was a bit tired and had only a handheld shower. The staff was all very friendly and accommodating. Good location within walking distance of temples and restaurants. We...

Compared to the hotel we stayed in, this hotel seemed much cleaner, so we came here for lunch as my husband and I were suffering from diarrhoea. Lunch was tastier than at our own hotel, and service much better. We were surprised to find that the wifi was actually functional, and we were really glad for that.

Other reviewers have mentioned problems with reservations here. I had booked through Asia Travel, but when I called the hotel a few days before my visit they said they had no record of my booking, and were fully booked for the days in question. I then had to call Asia Travel who eventually sorted things out. But I could not... More

The negative things that happened to out in this "Hotel" outweigh the positive ones so I'm never going back. We booked this in Agoda and apparently there was a glitch in the system and they never received our reservation. When we arrived we were given one of the two rooms that looked like a beach house. I was disappointed because... More

As the region is still building as a Tourisme area, there are just a few places to stay in Mrauk U. This hotel offers acceptable rooms (more a kind of small bungalows). Our room was spacious and had a sufficient bathroom. Although it needed some maintenance, the wooden floor was broken, some of the windows would not close and there... More
