We already stayed here for about 10 days in spring 2019, next was in November 2019 for another 7 days. Both times we stayed at our preferred hut - the Mud House. What to say? The room is nice and clean with a perfect veranda and good view into the wonderful tropical garden. We much enjoyed the breakfast, one can choose between western or burmese style. Our preference: Yummie Shan Noodle Soup! The staff is always smiling, very friendly and helpful. At the entrance you'll find the San Francisco Restaurant with good food although there are many other good restaurants at walking distance too. Very close you'll find small shops, barber, hairdresser, Bharista Khine where you get perfect espresso ... All together a perfect place which we can recommend.
Although I stayed here for work, it's certainly nice for a romantic stay too. The rooms are nicely done and amidst a charming garden (lots of work, according to the owner). There are even some mudblock-rooms just to show that one does not have to build everything in concrete all the time! Extensive breakfast and also a restaurant with Burmese food. You can walk to the center of town (5-10 min. even at night as we did) without any problem. It's the general atmosphere which is really the big plus for this hotel. Much recommended
We had a great time. The rooms were nice and simple, the linen clean. We used the laundry service which was good, a bit expensive but the laundry smelled fresh and looked clean. The stuff is really nice and helpful and the breakfast good especially the coffee. The bicycle cost 1500 mmk and they're very old and mine wasn't working properly. The Motorbikes cost 10000 which you can find for 8000 in the city. The san Francisco restaurant was good and the garden cafe which is very close was really good too.
Golden Gate Resort is a small resort in Pyin Oo Lwin. The bungalows are very nice with good beds and facilities. The people are very friendly and helpfull. A good restaurant “San Francisco” is in the front. Bikes you can used for free. Its about 10 minutes cycling to city centre and 15 to the botanical gardens. They arrange a very good and careful driving taxidriver from the airport. The price is around 35.000/40.000 kyats(depending on arrival time).
I made a trip to Myanmar 3 years ago now, and stayed for most of it at the Golden Gate Resort. I was reading through the reviews and noticed that my own that I wrote all that time ago was not among them - so I am writing another, due to how wonderful The Golden Gate Resort and San Fransisco restaurant were. I came to Pyin Oo Lwin to teach English at a local monestary and nunnery. I stayed for around a month and a half in total. Living there during that time was one of the best times of my life; Patrick, his family and his staff were incredibly friendly, hospitable and welcoming. They made sure I enjoyed very day there, and showed me all that there was to do in and near Pyin Oo Lwin. They allowed me to use their bicycles for free, made sure I felt at home during my birthday, told me about all the local haunts, invited me to do things when they knew I had nothing on, and always helped when things went awry. I have never felt more charmed, relaxed and welcomed anywhere I have travelled, I felt truley at home. I had my own small bungalow, with double bed, television, en suite, patio with a table and seats, WiFi, shower, and free bottled water all at a very very reasonable price. All of these things are wonderful, but you can get them at other places, but the comfort, kindness and homeliness of golden gate is one in a million. I think about The Golden Gate, Patrick, his staff and Pyin Oo Lwin very often, and am looking forward to a time when I am free to return. If you are planning on travelling to Pyin Oo Lwin, I can not recommend staying here more, and I hope that I can live vicariously through your experience!…
