The guest house was a very nice place to stay. The staff were friendly and very helpful, the breakfast holds a nice standard and the rooms are very clean and spacious with hot water, a fridge and a cosy balcony. We rented e-scooters which made it easy to experience the temple landscape in Bagan, and in the evening when we were starving, the staff helped us order food in so we could stay in the hotel and have an early night. This place is highly recommended!

I stayed here with my mom from 28th Dec 2019 to 31st and it was such a lovely stay. This accommodation is very clean and cozy. The staff is kind and helpful. You can also rent e-bikes from here and they are very reasonably priced. It takes about 15 mins to get Nyaung-U by e-bike but it’s totally manageable. Breakfast on the rooftop after you come back from watching the sunrise would be such a peaceful time. I would definitely stay again and highly recommend to everyone who is going to visit Bagan, Myanmar. P.S. Thank you again John and all the staff members for letting us to stay and wonderful memories in Bagan!! 정말 깨끗하고 아늑한 숙소입니다. 모든 방이 그런 진 모르겠으나 저희가 묵었던 방엔 발코니도 있어 너무 좋았습니다. 이바이크도 숙소에서 좋은 가격에 대여할 수 있고 옥상에서 먹는 조식도 맛있습니다! 냥우시내에서 15분 정도 떨어져있긴 하나 이바이크가 있으니 전혀 문제되지 않습니다. 완전 추천!!!!!!

A superb modern guest house offering top quality accommodation far in excess of the one star rating on Booking.com and all for a ridiculously low price.. I booked a double room with balcony.. The room was large, spotlessly clean, a great balcony for relaxing on after a long day and a fantastic en-suite.. Great water pressure & a seemingly never ending supply of hot water.. The room had everything you could wish for including a very quiet fridge, tea/coffee making facilities & even secure storage for valuables if required.. An excellent breakfast buffet was included with a wide choice cooked 'English' or 'Oriental', Continental, fruits, cakes, juices & hot drinks served on the shaded rooftop.. The guest house is located to the north of New Bagan on a lovely quiet street yet only 400m stroll to the main street past several restaurants and shops.. The owners are a lovely Burmese/Scottish couple who are both very friendly and extremely helpful.. Their staff are also very polite, friendly and helpful.. Reliable, well maintained e-bikes can be rented directly from the guest house for an absolute bargain price of 6000k (£3) a day.. The e-bikes are superb for exploring the Bagan Archaeological Zone.. WiFi is excellent in the room, balcony, roof (breakfast) & reception.. The electricity in New Bagan can occasionally cut out (it is no fault of Morning Star) however, as the owners have installed a private generator then the power is quickly up and running within 60 seconds or so.. In summary, Morning Star Guest House far exceeded my expectations given the rating & price.. A genuine gem of an accommodation in New Bagan..

Love the stay at Morning Star Guest House. Staff were friendly and very helpful. Owner speaks English well. He provides great tips about restaurant and shops. You can also rent e-bike directly from the guest house, very convenient. We have some booking issue with agoda. When we arrived, the owner is willing to honor the price and give us a big room since all the other room has been occupied. The place is in a smaller street, so it’s very quiet, but still very convenient to reach and go around. I also love the free buffet breakfast. It’s very good quality and good value. Definitely go back again.

Guesthouse is clean, quite new and quiet. We had a room on the ground floor facing the back. Although there was a balcony and chairs, there was no view as it was covered by green scaffolding. Bed is big and comfortable. It has many small touches that we don’t see in higher rated hotels like, torchlight in room, tray for toiletries in the shower area, bathmat, a low curb separating the shower area from the rest of the bathroom to stop flow of water out of shower area and map with highlighted places for you to view sunrise & sunset . Operator is a foreigner who speaks perfect English. Breakfast was delicious and refilled promptly. View from the roof TOP dining hall of hot air balloon floating by is an added treat. Guesthouse is located a few streets off the main road but there’re many restaurants and massage places within a short walk from guesthouse. Tip: Forget about Kyaw Kitchen just round the corner. Food was terrible. Try Elodie Restaurant a few streets away, much better food at reasonable prices.
