This is a lovely hotel set up in a quadrangle arrangement with the pool in the middle. However, in January the evenings are cool in Bagan (50's F) and the pool water is in the 60's F. As usual, no credit cards accepted. They even have a sign at the front desk telling you what year of US bills they will take. My room overlooked the pagodas so the view from the balcony was wonderful. There are thousands (literally) of pagodas in the area.
Be sure to get up early in the morning and go out the entrance and take a right. In about 100 yards you are down to the river (Irrawaddy). The bustle in the morning is very interesting. Take your camera.
I think that you can rent bicycles in the area. I saw a lot of people on bikes.
Breakfast is very good.
