We stayed for 2 days at the Aureum, arriving very early in the morning where we were given an early check in. The hotel is located just about 5 minutes away from the airport and in close proximity to many of the temples/ pagodas.
The hotel décor and grounds are beautiful and peaceful- very picturesque. Beyond the main pool are some pagodas which are artfully lit at night, adding to the wonderful ambience of the hotel. We stayed in a deluxe room which was quite spacious and very comfortable, although we could hear our neighbours quite clearly. Breakfast (which was included) was really good by Myanmar standards (omelette station, fresh fruit, pastries and the usual breakfast fare). The food at the restaurant was fine. Based on the trip advisor reviews it seems that some folks had problems with the service. Luckily, we had no problems. In fact the staff went out of their way to help us, give us advice on temples to visit and ensure we had a great stay. We did however have problems paying our bill (as we transferred the money in advance to their bank account). This was not the fault of the hotel staff but rather a snafu with their head office, which was very slow to respond to our queries or e mails.
All in all it was a good stay at a beautiful hotel. I would definitely stay here again if I returned to Bagan.
