Hotels almost always employ locals and rightfully so. They know the area, the sights, the weather, the eateries and the locals as well. Guide books, you feel, should be written by them rather than by an author from the west with a writing degree and a sense of adventure. Every now and again, you'll meet a local whose knowledge is...

We had three nights here while exploring the area and it made a very comfortable base. The rooms are big and nicely furnished with small outside seating area. I had a room facing the garden which meant I had a nice open view. Some of the rooms in other parts of the hotel were in alleys facing each other and...

This hotel are located in the center and next to the morning market as you can walk and see and taste some of foods, the hotel on this area you must not expect as the capital city area but sure is safe. And all staffs are helpful and friendly.

Travelling to Myanmar we were a little afraid of this hotel in Mrauk U because of mixed opinions from others travelers. After our stay there I must say that it is nothing to worry about. Localization of the hotel is perfect – very close to the temples form northern group. Room was clean and very spacious. Bathroom a little outdated...

This hotel comparing hotels in Myanmar is lower to mid range but good value for money. The location is good and really a pleasant stay. The rooms were clean, bathrooms are adequate but need improvement, wifi was as good as it gets in this area. The staff tried hard but a little difficult to communicate in English, I was luck...

The hotel was lovely. Beautiful rooms in a lovely setting. There was a "blip" in the kitchen on our first night but it was dealt with so graciously by the staff who gave us a plate of fruit as an apology that we decided to try again the following night. Well worth it - the food was delicious after that....

We stayed 4 nights at Shwe Thazin in Mrauk U. Staff were very friendly and helpful, food in the restaurant was very good and reasonably priced, and the included breakfast is decent. Bed was comfortable and the room was clean and spacious. The bathroom was dated but functional and with hot water which was a pleasant surprise. Wifi was patchy....

I didn't have high expectations, after all Mrauk U is remote and small, but there were too many problems even for me. First dissapointment was the bed- instead of the double we had booked we got two singles put together. Second was the Internet connection- none in the room and sometimes usable in the lobby. Staff are tottally clueless and...

Mrauk U is a rural municipality- it is the second largest rice growing region in Myanmar- so it is NOT Yangon. Secondly I think alot of it's visitors are Myanmar visiting the temples/shrines- not Western tourists. That said this hotel has electricity, running water and the rooms are clean. As with most places in Mrauk U the food is cooked...

If someone invested a bit of money into this property it could be a gem. Super friendly and helpful staff and manager, great looking rooms however the bathrooms let the hotel down. We ate at the restaurant a couple of nights and the food is excellent. Just as good as Moe Cherries but not as much choice on the menu....
