“Super Value for Money!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

If you are looking for a cosy, homely place but still affordable, look no further. This place is a good choice and most important of all, the staff are warm, friendly and very helpful!

Made my travel with my wheelchair-bound Granny the best experience ever!

Thumbs Up!

This hotel is Mawlamyaing's first attempt at a modern, international style hotel. It was opened in 2011 and still feels fairly new. They get some things right - fluffy towels, free bottled water in the minibar and the bathroom and nice room furnishings. The staff are very friendly. Compared to other hotels in South-east Myanmar, it is definitely a cut above.

But the hotel suffers from the same affliction as many similar hotels in Myanmar in that it is already becoming obvious that the maintenance of the hotel is not up to scratch. There is mould evident in many places on the ceiling, and look more closely at those lovely white duvet covers and you will see that they are already stained. Within three or four years, this place will look really run down.

The design of the hotel is also odd - it has a lovely semi-outdoor corridor that you walk down to reach your room on each floor with fantastic views of the river, but when you enter the room you discover your large window just looks out on a car park and old buildings. The inadequate curtains ensure you'll wake when the sun rises, as the early morning light comes blindingly into the room. The whole hotel design could have been reversed, with the corridor for accessing rooms at the back of the hotel and balconies with views out to the river in each room - that would have been lovely. As it is, you have to go out into the corridor to appreciate the views.

In summary, although it's not perfect, this is definitely the best place to stay in Mawlamyaing. I previously stayed at the Ngwe Moe hotel, and this is much nicer. Also, the associated restaurant next door is pretty good and offers an extensive menu.

Room Tip: Choose a room on a higher floor for a better view
