“Surgery room anyone?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2014 via mobile

The room we got had a distinct smell of pee lingering around.
The lighting was (as per standard in Myanmar) classic tube light which in conjunction with the steel tables taken directly from a hospital gave the room an unpleasant insane asylum feel.
We didn't stay for the night as me and my partner got uneasy around the whole situation.
We may have gotten the worst room of the place, not sure. They were fully booked and we couldn't swap rooms. Bad experience from my side.

The location of the guesthouse is a true winner. It's midway between Old and New Bagan. It's near restaurants too.

The room that I stayed is at the front part of the house so I could hear the chit-chattings and the noise from outside. It's considered one of the older rooms so I guess the newer ones have better lightings.

The shared toilets are clean.

The owners are friendly and nice IF you approach them with the biggest smile that you can do and if you talk to them when noone else is at the counter. They seem to get agitated easily when so many people are asking them at the same time. :)

You can ask their help to book you a bus ticket and to arrange a group tour to Mt. Popa. Their prices are cheaper compared to others.

I stayed in Myanmar for two weeks (peak period, Dec 2013-Jan 2014). If you would like to know how much to budget for a two-week backpacking stint, feel free to visit my blog: http://aldrinmercado.com/2014/01/10/much-cost-going-solo-two-weeks-myanmar/

We stayed at the Winner for 7 nights. This is a great location to explore Bagan. It's also quiet at night and the staff makes it easy (and cheap) for you to organize excursions around (like Mt Popa). The rooms are clean and spacious enough.

I really liked this guesthouse, nice and with friendly staff. It is located in a very convenient position to visit the temples. You can rent bycicles at a very honest price and the staff tries its best to help out to organize your stay in Bagan.
It is a very nice solution to enjoy the beauty of the area!

We did not book in advance and had problems finding a place in Bagan. Winner GH was good value for money. We stayed in a double bed plus single bed clean room facing the road with fan and AC. Cost at 30 USD incl breakfast and warm water (not hot, just lukewarm).
We did not book anything from them, but went next door to rent the bicycles for 1500 per day.
If you are looking for a clean, cheap place to stay, with your own bathroom, in a great location to explore Bagan by bicycle - you found it.

The newly built rooms we were stayin in are basic, but very clean,spacious with nice bathroom and AC. They serve tipical breakfast (toast, egg, tee/coffe, some fruit) and rent out bicycles, help you out buying bus tickes, etc. The double room rate was 25 usd.

We stayed here 3 days and 2 nights 25$ double room with one extra single bed, which we never asked for but was included in the package I guess. Very grumpy people worked there I must say, not many smiles were shared which is a shame coz Burmese people are smiley and polite. Anyway, room was clean, a bit sad decor, but aircon worked well hot water worked whenever it wanted to work, we stayed there 3 days but they never came to change the bin or soap! Basic breakfast close to lots of temples, easy to ride around!
Cheap options available, I think room with a fan 8$ shared bathroom. Cheaper prices during low season.
