Over 66% of the hotel was being rennovated when we were there in July 2012 so any future guests should get an even better experience than we had.
As prior reviewers have said this is perfectly located for easy walking or horse carts to the Bagan temples. Some of the farthest temples could require a car but there is enough to see within horse cart distance to satisfy two full days. Horse carts cost about $25 for a full day. Bycycles are available for rent from the hotel but the sandy cart tracks could make cycling tough.
About a mile away the Arawaddy views (which this hotel does not have) are also spectacular so if you plan to spend a lot of time within the hotel walls this hotel may not be your best choice - rather choose a river view hotel - but for temple convenience this is great.
There are several restaurants within 100 yards of the main entrance to the Hotel so no need to stay within the hotel for food - the dining room looked bland and we never ate there.
