We stayed there for 3nights in a family room, since we were 3of us in our group. The hotel is spread put in a very beautiful garden, and is very quiet. The breakfast is a buffet, where everybody will find something he/she likes. The only thing that was not all to our satisfaction was our room, it was super small,...

It was fun to stay here because of the Burmese-style buildings and the friendly greeting by WaWa, who helps people schedule their activities and speaks English well. Also, the hotel manager was helpful and accommodating when we found that we had scheduled our stay to begin one day later than what we had thought, so we arrived at night with...

The Ruby True Hotel was my last stop on a five-week adventure in southeast Asia, and the place was enchanting, to say the least, a memorable part of my overall experience in Myanmar. The manager and his able staff were so attentive and supportive, and helped with such things as booking an airline ticket back to Yangon and arranging for...

We stayed here for 2nights and it was amazing. The traditionally designed rooms were spacious, clean and well maintained. The staff were very accommodating and more than willing to assist us in anything (booking for massage, restaurant, car, etc). The property has a big garden (which is beautifully set up as a breakfast and dinner area) and is away from...

This hotel is situated about a ten min walk from the main part of new Bagan. This isn't a major issue as most tourists rent e-bike (electronic moped) to travel around new Bagan, old Bagan and nyuang-u. Wah wah was fantastic, she gave us a very warm welcome, despite arriving at 5am from a night bus from Yangon. We had...

When faced with the choice of where to stay in Bagan, choose authentic, economical Ruby True Hotel. Why spend a ton of money on hotels that haven't even figured out what luxurious means yet?

My family's stay at Ruby True will always be a memorable one.
