“Nice view but little more!”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

The spartan rooms were cold and uninviting. The bathroom was huge but out-of-date and was unable to be heated enough to take a shower which I did not do for the one night there.
The breakfast buffet was inadequate - the hot foods were cold as was the temp on the open veranda where it was served. Consequently, I settled for toast with butter.

Cabins in a hill top area which requires a steep drive up. The rooms are very basic. Very cold at night and early morning. the only heating is a inefficient fan heater. The bathrooms desperately need updating. The breakfast was limited and being in an open veranda it was very uncomfortably cold. An unpleasant stay.

I have stayed 2 times in this hotel. Location is a bit far from city area about 20 min walk and it was on top of the hill therefore going up and down is not so convenient. However, the view from the hotel is deserved to check in. Very beautiful scenes and hotel itself is relaxing. Car or bike rental can be arranged easily through Hotel reception, $4 per trip for car, $2 per trip for bike and Tuk Tuk charged around $4.

My first stay was in October with family and the weather was not so cold, probably 20-25 degree but sleeping was fine as temperature decreased at night. Second stay was in February with my friend, the temperature at night is 2-3 degree and 8-15 degree at day time. Hotel supplied portable heater and extra blanket in winter. Bedding, bathroom facilities are average but it was acceptable for me as Kalaw is just a small city.

Hotel has a restaurant, clean, spacious, beautiful scenic and very charming staffs but only available for breakfast, lunch and dinner not all day service. Food is average and serve only local wine.

Overall, I have satisfied with Hill Top Resort for both of my stay.

Since Kalaw is the quiet city which is a place to relax and sit back and enjoy the cold weather. Stayed there for 2 night at the family room which is huge with 2 storey building, fully constructed with timber which is amazing. Average facility and service and breakfast.

In January, it is cold in them thar hills. And a tiny space heater without a fan is not enough to heat up a large cold room. Rustic, yes. Comfortable, not. Additionally, the bathroom is separate and unheated. The breakfast room is unheated and "hot" food served on the veranda is (surprise) cold. They advertise internet access in the lobby only, but that is only a claim. Never worked. Yes, the view is nice, but the steps to climb to get down (or up) to your room, make it a place worth skipping. Unfortunately, it may be the best in Kalaw at the moment.

Room Tip: If you have difficulty climbing stairs, ask for a room on the reception level.

Stayed one night during a tour of Myanmar. We had a chalet (114) at the front of the hotel with a great view over the valley below. The room was a good size and had mosquito nets on the windows and a coil to burn. However there was a huge gap under the door leading out on to the verandah, which we blocked up using the narrow bed-throws! It was quite cool at night, so the extra blankets were welcome. Toiletries provided and the bathroom was just adequate. The garden setting is delightful and it was very pleasant to sit outside and watch the sunset, but don't forget the mosquito spray and a plug with tablets as back-up. Dinner was good but wine is expensive.
