Let's start with the best aspect of the hotel - its staff. As with the rest of the country (before it goes in the same direction as Thailand), the staff we encountered at Kumudara were all a pleasure to deal with. They were more than happy sorting out air tickets, giving advice on how to go around the city, and even hopped into town to pick up some items for my friend's 'emergency', an absolutely brilliant bunch!
The room itself was a tiny bit tired but charming and clean regardless. That aside, from our standard room (USD 42/night) - the view from the balcony - temple plains would leave you very pleasantly surprised!
The hotel itself is a quite a way in from the main road (from which there weren't any restaurants /bars in the vicinity). Therefore you are at the mercy of the hotel's restaurant which was a tiny bit pricey by Burmese standard (but pretty good). You can also have drinks in the restaurant - however the general vibe of the place is very sleepy and the hotel, despite being fully booked was dead by 10 pm.
All in all, pleasant enough room, great view, good restaurant - amazing staff.
