I stayed there for two weekends in this modest yet homey and heart-warming place last year. Miss Kim (a truly inspiring woman who I still talk to online often), her husband and everyone there could not have been more hospitable. They helped us hire tuk-tuks, booked buses at discounted prices and even offered me one of their bikes for free to ride around Hpa-an (and that especially allowed me to escape from dogs that chased after me) . The breakfast would be superb for you if you enjoy surprises - the food was different every morning and consisted of local cuisine. You could even ask them to prepare extra food any time of the day. The furnishings are not particularly aesthetic, but they are sufficient to fulfill basic needs. Going up to the rooftop and enjoying a panoramic view of Hpa-an was a lovely experience. Hope to return some day and visit the people there!…
Kim and the rest of the staff at Galaxy were so friendly and helpful. They looked after me really well when i had food poisoning. They brought me to the local hospital, waited for me while I was seen and brought me back. I really appreciated their kindness. Aside from that, the beds are comfy, good AC and a hot shower. Breakfast is great too. Recommendations provided about local food and things to do were spot on.
Arrived at 2am at Hpa An clock tower by overnight bus, so we were thankful that the motel was located within walking distance. A room was available so we took it and had a very good rest and woke up to an awesome breakfast! And thereafter, we looked forward to our daily breakfasts that came with the room at an unbelievable reasonable price! We stayed in Galaxy for 3 nights and were always greeted and helped by the friendly staff. Kim was like a superwoman, at the counter answering enquries, on the phone making travel arrangements, by the door sending guests off... we weren’t that into temples and preferred hikes and villages. And at her recommendations we thoroughly enjoyed Hpa An! Highly recommended!!
Great staff and organisation, all travel advice was available at reception and was able to book all tours directly from Hotel Reception. Breakfast was exceptional. Shower was hot. Wifi worked fine. Room could do with minor maintenance but it was good enough. Would recommend this hotel to others.
Good location in the center of Hpa An with many things in walking distance (market, sunset at the river, night market, restaurants...). People are amazing and very welcomming. You get a hand drown map for your orientation and they have every information you need, just ask. Arrangement of transport like Tuk-Tuk or boat tickets where easy, the stuff is very helpful. Rooms are basic but there is all you need. If you can spend some more money, stay in the spacious family room on the rooftop terrace, very nice with overviewing the city. Breakfast was good, a choice of Burmese food, fruits and toast & egg as well.
