This is a fairly expensive hotel. We were disappointed about our 3 night stay. Rooms are not nice. Matresses are cheap and they slide off the bed in the night. Bathroom was v tired. Pool was so cold it was almost unusable. Bad wifi. Food in the restaurant was not very good. But there were two major problems. The first...

I've read a lot of reviews singing the praises of the newer built hotels in New Bagan and want to defend this hotel. Beautiful grounds and really appreciated being able to watch the sunset from the restaurant area away from the crowds. Right next to the river and incredible view! Staff bent over backwards to help me wherever possible and...

Breakfast beset by big black birds. Exchange rate a rip off, especially as hotel far from alternatives which required long hot walk in day and v dark at night ( guide warned...

Perfect location for exploring temples. Fantastic views across river especially at breakfast. Lovely gardens including private ancient temple. Great service at front desk. Dated, dark and tired rooms. Overpriced for what you get.

This hotel claimed three stars, my assessment of two would be more appropriate. Dark, dingy, dated. What is a stunning location beautiful buildings, a dated sad interior in comparison to the other hotels we stayed in. Breakfast was not a patch on what we had in other places, miserable sullen staff who were unhappy in their job. Having been so...

They save us in Thunderstorm! We did not know a heavy rain is coming on our arrival night. We walked to a restaurant outside for dinner, which is about 800 meters from the hotel. When we are about to going back to the hotel, it rained suddenly! It was flooding everywhere and we could not leave the restaurant. No taxi,...

Bagan hotel river view is a very beautiful hotel in great location, pretty close to the ancient pagodas. The room was quite spacious. The little temple inside the garden of the hotel was stunning with the candles during the night. I wish the breakfast was a bit better. Especially the European dishes were quite disappointing. Burmese dishes though were of...

There is not a lot to see in Bagan except more Pagodas and temples. The hotel is right next to the museum and on the river front. Arriving in Bagan each tourist pays 25.000k for entry into all the tourist sites except the palace. The standard fare to the hotel is 6,000K. The hotel is very modern designed on a...
