From the exit of the cable car, about 3 min walking. There is a guy to stop you asking for paying 10,000 kyats for foreign visitor.
No expectation because there only few hotel on the top of this mountain area.
Most local people sleep on the floor of the pagoda ( maybe nice if there are stars).
The room is just OK, similar to the $20 room of the hotel in other towns.
But it is worth to stay overnight for the spectacular Golden Rock night light.

You have reviews of this great hotel so i will tell you about our tour of the Golden Rock. we went with Buffalo Tours which were just great they went out of their way to look after us ,our Guide was Ko Zaw Min Oo who i cant say enough good things about. Now Kyaikhityo or Golden Rock is a must see place if you are going to Myanmar its about 3 to 4 hours out of Yangon so it might be a great idea to stay at the Golden Rock Hotel for a night, the Golden Rock is and immense Bloulder perched precariously on the side of a cliff, make the walk up to its glittering facade and take in the incredible views you will love it, happy traveing.

Some people complain that this hotel rooms are pricey. THey are but this is best hotel near the Golden Rock and they are a must when you want to see the sunset . There are no better alternatives

Nice views from the window. The clean hotel room provides the basics - shower with hot water, comfortable bed, etc. WiFi only works at the lobby but not in the room . Food in restaurant was OK. The staff is very polite and welcoming.

We were very happy with our choice!
The top of the mountain is busy and loud, a 20 min walk down to this hotel was well worth it.
It’s in the forest and very quiet.
Wonderful friendly staff.
Lovely terrace to have sundowners.
Large spotless room with comfy bed.
Nice big shower.
There is good aircon but we didn’t need it. We slept with windows open( there are mosquito screens).
Nice breakfast.
Only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is the cost of the dinner - in dollars - we ate our own snacks.
Nevertheless I recommend it and would stay here again.
Thank supertraveltracy

There are at least two hotels under this name. Talking about the one right on top of the mountain about ten minutes to the Entrance of the pagoda it is necessary to say that we were there in summer but we should have taken a complete winter equipment like the Burmese do. Especially when staying Overnight in order to see the sunrise which in our case was not worth waiting for. The hotel offers little service at a maximum price. Cold shower, old toilet, thin walls. So thin in fact that the wind blew into the room. A sleeping bag open air is more honest. Breakfast a desolation in a windy hall. Maybe the ongoing restauration makes the pricy adventure worth going. For the time being: stay in the valley!

The Golden Rock Hotel is a vantage point commanding unique breath taking views of the surrounding mountain ranges and spectacular sunsets – sights that will leave a lasting impression. Uniquely situated in an More idyllic setting amid lush tropical vegetation and age-old rocks, the Golden Rock Hotel is ideal for relaxation and meditation on your trip to Kyaiktiyo.Just a 45-minute hike to the Kyaiktiyo Pagoda (Golden Rock Pagoda), the Golden Rock Hotel is one of the only properties offering international class accommodation and facilities to travelers.Accommodation is in individual chalets strategically placed on more than three acres of wooded terrain on Mt. Kyaiktiyo. The distinctive shape of each building resembles the shape of a hermit’s hat, taking full advantage of different elevations and architecturally designed to assure privacy for each room. This hotel is a perfect hideout, far-away from the busy city, yet it is located only 2 miles away from the world famous “Golden Rock Pagoda” which is distinguished as one of the most awe-inspiring places in the world.We are the proud recipient of the international “Millennium Golden Award” for Commercial Prestige for Customers’ Satisfaction and the “Green Standard Hotels Award” by the Ministry of Hotels and Tourism. Taking pride in our eco-friendly and sustainable operating systems we strive for a “Greener Myanmar”. A few of our eco-friendly efforts would include the mini-dam that was especially built on the premises for collecting natural mountain spring water for the exclusive use of the hotel. Our garden thrives in biodiversity consisting of blooming orchids, many varieties of butterflies and our own organic fruit patch. Some of these fruits are placed on your table to offer the best meal experience.Golden Rock Hotel has been the most preferred amongst visitors to this sacred site for our service, facilities and our ability to go above and beyond our guests’ expectations.
