“Large Room-Quiet place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2013

I booked this for my last 2 nights in Myanmar as was having trouble finding a decent price in Mandalay and thought I might want some peach and quiet and better air by that time anyway.

Yes the air is better up in Pyin Oo Lwin and yes its much quieter. If your a walker you can walk south to the Botanical Gardens (admission 5000 Kyat foreigner, 1000 Myanmar. You can also veer left and walk to the Shan Market. Botannical is about 35 min, market about 20 min.

The room was large and there were probably only about 4 or 5 units occupied when I was there so it was very quiet. Staff helpful--as I found they are everywhere in Myanmar. Room
had microwave and everything we needed. I paid $90 for two on Agoda. More than I would normally pay but I wanted to assure a decent place at end of trip.

The breakfast doesn't start until 7am. Its fair. You can walk out and turn right and one minute away is Woodland Restaurant. Its a modern establishment with a large menu and music some nights. Keep walking another minute a Chinese place on the corner. Keep walking south and then make a right to Feel Lakefront Restaurant. BEWARE-there are 2 FEEL restaurants in town.
You can easily get confused. One on a lake front and one not. The one not you probably will pass on the way to this hotel. It is about 1000 feet NW of the one on the lake but on different roads with different access and it appeared to me from being at both they are not connected
but it might just be a language problem. Both are large restaurants. Both say FEEL outfront.

As with every hotel in Myanmar currently, the internet never works all the time and power outages do occur.

My room had a floor above it, yet many were individual cottage type rooms. I don't know the pricing, as I chose on Agoda and sometimes you just take a category! I would stay here again.

I decided to walk the botanical gardens. The price offered for the horse cart was too high and really most everything there is walkable. The walk to the Botanical might be too much for some though. Its at least a mile.

I ordered a special car/taxi from hotel front desk to the airport. . Paid them the cash first, they found the driver for the next day. Driver arrived on time, got us to Mandalay airport on time.
Car was rather old and beat up, but it worked out fine.

Room Tip: Try for your own cottage type room. If people are above the ones with a floor above it can get noisy...

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

Picturesque hotel set in a beautiful town of MayMyo ( Pyin Oo Lwin). Friendly and helpful staff. Great value for money. My family and I enjoyed the scenic view from the balcony of our room on top floor of one of the individually built bungalows. Breakfast is of medium standard and often some items ran out if you are late. Don't try laundry service. It's sub-standard. Overall, we had a great time.
