Hotel looks great and staff are most helpful. Rooms are tiny though .. not even space for 2 cases. Bathroom even smaller with shower over toilet and everything gets soaking. Very warm rooms despite climate and very noisy .... get room on ground floor at the back.

We stayed there for one night before heading for our trek. The staff here doesn't speak good english which made it a bit tricky at first. We had requested a double room but were given a twin room. When I told the guy at reception he acted as if he didn't understand what I was saying so I just left it... The room was very small and very dated and so was the shower...
We had a view on the emergency stairs which definitely didn't add anything positive to the dated room..
Breakfast was very basic with one pancake per person and 2 slices of bread with jam.
it was ok to stay there for one night but I would have changed if we had a longer stay.

Dream Villa overlooks scenic mountains and is set on a quiet road in Kalaw. It is family run, with modest, clean and cosy rooms, and an elegant simplicity of life. Our stay was relaxing, charming and thoroughly enjoyable. Come to Dream Villa if you seek simple comforts, cleanliness and a friendly welcome - all at a reasonable price.

We were made to feel very welcome at the Dream Villa by its friendly staff. The young girls who worked there were always pleasant and smiling and tried to converse with their limited English. The breakfast was simple but good and pleasantly laid out and served efficiently. Our room was quite large but felt much smaller because of it having 3 beds. We had a temple view which was lovely however on one night was noisy as the monks chanted till daybreak to signal the start of a festival – but that is part of the culture, so no complaints. The hotel offered different services including massages, I had an hours massage for the equivalent of £5, which was excellent value for money. Kalaw isn't a big place and Dream Villa is quite central and only takes a few minutes to reach most of the sites.

We came to Kalaw as a base for trekking and realised that the accommodation may be simple and basic in the town itself.

The Dream Villa Hotel is a lovely old Colonial building that provides a quiet, clean and cosy atmosphere with a sit-down breakfast that is served to you in a quaint breakfast room.
It consisted of samosa, papaya fruit, pancake with syrup, choice of boiled or scrambled eggs, unlimited toast, jams, tea,coffee and fruit juice.

We had a medium sized front room on the third floor with comfortable beds and lovely views of the glittery stupa which is covered in gold, silver and coloured glass mosiacs.
We could hear the chanting monks early in the morning which really enhanced the atmosphere - although some people might tend to disagree.

The bathroom or wet room (quite apt) is basic but did the job, with ample supply of hot water and good pressure. The room gets rather wet from no shower curtain or shower tray, but actually dries out fairly quickly.

The main market is fabulous, especially when the local tribes people in their colourful, traditional clothing arrive with all their fresh produce, flowers and spices (this occurs every 5 days) as well as shops and restaurants (our favourite being the Everest Nepali Food Centre) are all within 1 or 2 blocks from the Dream Villa. Kalaw town is only small and very easily navigated on foot.

We recommend "Dream Villa Hotel" if you are looking for something clean and practical and NOT 4-5 luxury.

The hotel was very clean and simple. The staff were very professional. The Alpine theme almost works given Kalaw's location.

Breakfast was simple and fairly standard but good with it.

The location is good. It is away from the noise of the main road with all the heavy trucks and nowhere in Kalaw is very far from anywhere!

Our room was not very big and the bathroom small but with a nice view (2nd floor). There was satellite TV.

I would recommend this as a good option for a hotel in Kalaw.

Upon arrival all looked well, greeted by staff, drinks and towels as is the tradition. Nice teak parquet floors, friendly staff and well decorated large building. By the Kalaw standard it was a nice looking hotel - simple, but looked good.

However, upon allocation of room things went down hill seriously. Upon entering the room was greeted by musty smell, windows that wouldn't shut properly, mosi nets that had massive gaps, no fridge, 14" tv (that didn't work), dead cockroach by the head of one of the beds, stained curtains that resembled potato sacks, dirt on the floor (mud etc.) and the bathroom was basically a toilet cubicle with a sink and shower head... shower properly and you covered everything. This was dirty, mouldy and frankly unclean... a v unpleasant experience.

On top of this, the windows in the toilet, i mean bathroom, were simple louvres so again mosi's easily get in and there were no u bends so the standard floor drain simply stunk of sewerage - and from which the second cockroach emanated.

Then if you looked out the two windows (the room was bright i'll give you that) it had the large 6ft diameter hotel satellite dish on top of the kitchen roof in one direction... and the communal toilet for the houses next door out the other... a nice site to be met by a man doing his business first thing in the morning. Also, as you would imagine, the heat made some pleasant odours from this area too that wafted in.

On both nights a full sweep of the room was required for insects or alike before finally settling down to a v uncomfortable nights sleep with the kitchen splashing and banging through the wall until about 1am and starting again about 5am.

Finally, hunt the plug socket. Turned out there was 2. 1 hidden behind a cabinet to the non-working tv and second on a wall that you had to gaffer tape the items into to make the connection.... not great considering the battery dependency us westerners have on holiday

Having said all this, other members of the tour stated their rooms were great, had baths, showers, fridges, were clean, proper windows and no insects (dead or alive) and some even had balconies overlooking the entrance, so i have to say it must have been the room i had that was terrible (204 - request a change if you get it).

Communal areas of the hotel were clean, the staff v friendly and well positioned in Kalaw (although some seemed surprised by a early morning prayer call from the mosque...even though we passed it on the way in) and overall had a nice 'old colonial' ambiance about it.

So in summary, communal areas nice if basic but you have to get the right room... front nice, back simply horrific.

We stayed two nights at the Dream Villa and really wished we had not come here at all. The hotel is spartan and very basic, with few creature comforts. The bathroom needed a serious upgrade - extremely small sink, no amenities, and the bathtub literally took half an hour to fill. It was extremely cold in January, dipping to just above freezing at night, and the room was dingy and uncomfortable, with poor lighting. There is a tiny, open air lobby, but other than that, you are stuck in your room for the evening as there is absolutely nothing to see or do in the ugly town. The breakfast was served by the staff and was only average compared to the wonderful buffet breakfasts we had in other parts of Myanmar. There is no safety deposit box in the room, valuables are wrapped in newspaper, sealed with duct tape and put in a drawer at the reception desk. We came here for a day of hiking, which was strenuous, but we didn't see much in the way of hill tribes or local culture. We visited two private homes only, and it was disappointing compared to visits to hill tribes in Vietnam or Thailand. All in all, really not worth a visit except for the large five day market which was fascinating.
