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. Seemed an ok place but when we got the bill and only had USD they gave us a ridiculously unfair rate. It seemed like one minute all they want is dollars... More

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. We hired an e-bike and we saw all the payas we wanted to visit and explore. In old Bagan we had dinner at the Khaing Shwe Wah - vegetarian and... More

We had just a few days to holiday in Myanmar after a business trip. Decided to visit Bagan, and took the advice of the concierge at the Park Royal in Yangon who arranged everything for us.

This hotel is expensive and the reception and service is not as friendly as we experiences at smaller hotels or guesthouses. The rooms are big but dark, formal and smell a little damp.

My wife and I stayed here for 3 days and it is ideally positioned for temples, with two inside the grounds and a huge one just outside the gate. The hotel itself is definitely 'tired'; the bedroom was too dark to read, even with all lights on, the swimming pool was very cloudy and not really fit for swimming, although,... More

The scenery is fantastic: There is a temple in the garden of the hotel and the view on the river is great. The hotel is in old Bagan so not much around to dine but you can easily find a horse carriage. The rooms are big but getting old. The showers are not working well and hard to set between... More
