We had two junior suites (306 and 307) for three nights at the end of November. The start was not promising as our pre-arranged airport pick-up was not there. However, Min from the hotel’s reception was there and he quickly organised a taxi for us. This ended up being quite fortunate as the driver (Nyi Nyi) had a reasonable car and spoke competent English, so we used him for all four days of our stay. From then on everything was wonderful. Our rooms were spacious and the terraces fronted a small pond, beyond which were the fields with their temples. Most things about the hotel are excellent: size of the rooms, amenities, staff, and in-room massages (at an incredible $4!!, so we indulged daily). If staying in touch is of prime importance, then there could be an issue as there is no wifi in the rooms, but there are two computers for guest use, however, the “free” period is 30 minutes per day and the computers could be in use – we relaxed and immersed ourselves in the region rather getting onto the internet. The restaurant is very reasonably priced with a large variety on offer, however, the food is average quality at best. The small pool was nice for a mid afternoon break from climbing pagodas and monuments. Min and the reception staff were very helpful in ensuring we were well informed about what to see and what the prices should be. Highly recommend this wonderful small hotel for the price/quality and the friendly, helpful staff.
We took advantage of our travels in the area to have lunch at two much more upmarket hotels: the Thiripyitsaya Sakura Hotel and the Aureum Palace. Both meals and restaurants were excellent (even though much more expensive) and both hotel shops had some lovely items at reasonable prices, although much more expensive and better quality than available at the markets etc.
Highly recommend staying at the clean, warm and friendly Kumudara Hotel.
