Experience the old-world charm of Kalaw Heritage Hotel, a landmark hotel at the former hill station Kalaw, built during the British era in 1903 hence the second oldest hotel in Myanmar after the glorious “The Strand Hotel Yangon” built in 1901. Kalaw is situated 70 km west of Taunggyi; the capital of Shan state and about 50 km from Pindaya caves. Kalaw sits high on the western edge of the Shan Plateau and was a popular hill station in the British times.

There is so much to like about this hotel - from the beautiful colonial buildings and the lovely setting to the excellent food and staff. My bedroom was in the 1906 building. The room was very spacious, beautifully decorated with antique furniture, had a very comfortable bed and a nice bathroom with an excellent shower. The wifi was also very good. There is an extensive breakfast menu. I tried three different options and all three were delicious. I had dinner twice at the hotel and, while the menu is a bit limited (during Covid pandemic times), the food was very very good and nicely presented. The staff is excellent and I was very impressed with the service and attentiveness throughout my stay. Overall, I enjoyed my stay very much and happily recommend the hotel to others.

This is a nice hotel with a good bar and restaurant with lots of things for kids to do that doesn't involve their personal "devices". They enjoy getting out in to the surrounding area for walks and treks into the mountains.

Took a road trip from Bagan to Kalaw on our way to Inle Lake. Great hotel. Comfy bed, lovely hot and high pressure shower. Beautiful colonial setting. Great wine selection and surrounded by a few restaurants if you want to eat out.

We stayed there 1 night, we moved from other hotel with bad experience, and we had the same there. We wanted the double bed, they put two single beds together. If they put the same bed and make comfortable, it is fine for us, we don’t mind. But the beds are slightly different and have a obvious line between them. It was uncomfortable for us! The room is clean and the surrounding is also very nice. The best thing is the bathroom, we really like it! Early morning, pigeons made a lot of noice on the roof and some birds made sounds on the glass of the window. We woke up very early because of these noice. The worst thing that we had is, we were at Te new building. Three local man made very loud noise and played video game downstairs. That is the worst experience that we’ve ever had before. There is no staff in this building and we informed to reception to tell them. When we back from dinner, they were there and drinking beer together. After this, we heard something crush or somebody throw something to the upstairs. We decided to neglect. Next morning, we found the Myanmar Beer lids on the hall way. The worst experience ever!
