We stayed two nights in one of the cheaper rooms at Thande. It was the most expensive hotel we stayed at in Myanmar but still ok value for money. Good restaurant with decent prices and a nice pool. However, as I understand, it's affiliated with the government so you may want to think twice before you book it.
And lastly, the e-bikes that Thande (and many other hotels) rent out are ridiculous, Bagan is almost flat and it's easy to ride around the temples with a normal bike. And it earns you a desert for dinner (given it's much cheaper and provides some exercise).

Unbeatable location in the archeological zone beside the river. Had a deluxe garden room which was big with a big bathroom and nice terrace - very quiet and relaxing.
Beautiful pool area - you can also get some shade under big trees.
Nice open restaurant and bar area beside the river with the most beautiful sunsets very evening.

We had chosen Bagan Thande Hotel for our three days trip to Bagan and Nyaung U.We stayed there for two nights.This hotel is very well located along the bank of The Irrawaddy River,We stayed at one of the beautiful bungalows which are nice and clean and also the beds are comfortable.The swimming pool is looked very inviting,surrounded by well kept gardens with multicolour roses and jasmine.The reception is large and airy.We can use wifi there and also on the poolside,but the wifi connection is very poor.Staff are very friendly and very helpful.Buffet breakfast is fantastic under a big Acacia shaded tree,with many choice of both Western and Asian food.The quality of food is not so bad.We can have fresh air and very good riverview while having breakfast.
Overall I would like to recommend that Bagan Thande Hotel is very good.

This is a hotel with history, with some rooms (like ours) looking onto the Irrawaddy river, a wonderful view as you sit outside your room or at the outside bar and restaurant, set under soaring acacia trees. The room is large, as is the bathroom, and quite comfortable. The grounds are lovely and there is nothing to disturb the calm all day and night. The breakfast was reasonable and other meals were OK -- the menus are a little limited but fine for Myanmar at this point. The hotel is ideally suited for walking to a temple or two or as a base to explore further afield. Not cheap but we didn't regret forking out.

Besides location this place has nothing that speaks for itself. Bad service and everything was overpriced for Myanmar standard with very bad food quality. The only saving grace was the bell boy who actually organized us the taxi to go through Bagan.

Location is great, very nice riverview and a good starting point for tours in Old Bagan. All major temples/pagodas can be easily reached by bike.

We had one of the more recent rooms just next to the reception. The room was nice and clean with a spacious bathroom. However, it did not justify the price (110USD per night). This seems to be a general problem in Myanmar at the moment. On our last day we visited the Spa, just to have a shower after the pool, and were negatively surprised. The Spa was really run down, dirty and apart from that very basic.

As part of a tour, I was able to stay here for two nights. Had a deluxe room facing the river. Room was large and clean. The bed was comfortable. The view of the river and the overall landscape for this resort was very manicured and "tropical". Eating dinner outdoors was a treat. I was surprised that there wasn't any mosquitos. The dinner menu variety was ok and the food was ok and the prices were reasonable. Same with the breakfast buffet. The internet connectivity was poor and intermittent. The staff rebooted the router but that didn't solve the problem. The hotel's PCs were old and the ethernet connectivity to the internet was not any better than wireless. This was a pleasant and enjoyable stay.
