Bagan hotel river view is a very beautiful hotel in great location, pretty close to the ancient pagodas. The room was quite spacious. The little temple inside the garden of the hotel was stunning with the candles during the night. I wish the breakfast was a bit better. Especially the European dishes were quite disappointing. Burmese dishes though were of... More

There is not a lot to see in Bagan except more Pagodas and temples. The hotel is right next to the museum and on the river front. Arriving in Bagan each tourist pays 25.000k for entry into all the tourist sites except the palace. The standard fare to the hotel is 6,000K. The hotel is very modern designed on a... More

Unique hotel with a number of temples within and around the grounds and spectacular river views which were a great way to start and end the day. Rooms were comfortable and the staff were friendly and attentive. Good breakfast for the days we were there with good variety for all tastes and freshly prepared. Unfortunately the pool was closed for... More

If you are looking for a peaceful place with great view, fresh air and in the old Bagan regoin, I guess this would be the place. It is just beside the river in the Old Bagan Region so that most ancient places are just in a walking distance. The staffs are great, rooms are nice and the parameter is large,... More

It is located in Old Bagan City and convenient for the sight seeing. Beautifully designed hotel with Bagan style buildings and has their own pagoda in the hotel compound. Breakfast is ok and they served breakfast on the riverside where we can enjoy the view of Irrawady River. Staff are helpful and the rooms are so big! A nice hotel... More

This was a fantastic hotel in a great location near several temples and ruins (and with a few ruins on its own property). The restaurant by the river provides a great surrounding for meals, the pool is a great way to cool off after a long day, and the staff is very helpful. The only complaint I have is poor... More

We took a walk down through old Bagan and ended uphere for lunch. We ate by the pool side bar. Food was ok and decent options for our kids.

We spent 2 nights in this hotel, and I found it very nice and relaxing. The pool was romantic and the hotel is strategic to reach the payas in Bagan.
